About Laurie Davis

We are empty nesters that love the Pacific Northwest and love to travel, hike, garden, and cook. We have another home we list on VRBO. # 618425.

Laurie Davis purchased this house in 2015

Why Laurie Davis chose Vancouver

We purchased this property due to its location in downtown Vancouver as we wanted to be able to walk to restaurants, shops, the farmer's market, and the waterfront. We are minutes away from Portland, Or and all it offers.

Wedding perfect

  • 4 of 5

Five of us adults flew to WA for our son's wedding. We saw all the pictures online but seeing it in person is even better. Wow. What a great place to stay! With 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (all with showers) and 3 sitting areas you can't go wrong. I only wished we had more time to truly enjoy it.

The owners supplied all our needs and more. Not only did it have all the essentials, it also had things we would not expect - laundry soap, food items, extra blow dryers and a mini straightener. The weather was warm when we arrived and the upstairs bedrooms needed either the windows open at night or a fan and that was sufficient.

Not having a bathroom on the main floor was not an issue for us. It was very clean which is something I'm extremely picky about. For us it simply felt like home~ We will definitely return if we make another trip to WA. Thanks for a great wedding weekend~

House real nice. 30 min from Portland.

  • 4 of 5

3 levels w 2 BR up and one down in basement. No bathroom on main level. Very nicely done. Kitchen well stocked. Washer dryer full size. Had heat wave so upper level was a bit warm and basement freezing but Laurie provided fans that made big difference. Good location could get everywhere w car easily. We used grill and drank some wine from local wineries. Overall very good.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time staying here in this home in Vancouver. Close proximity to Portland. Comfortable, clean and well appointed-we weren't left needing anything. Laurie is great to work with and is readily available. We would certainly stay here again.
