Kim Pelett purchased this apartment in 1984

Why Kim Pelett chose Nob Hill

I purchased this property in 1984 after many trips to San Francisco I found that the Nob Hill area of Portland had the same type of feel to me. I have a passion for everything vintage. I love the feeling of the turn of century homes. A chance to experience an era gone by....

What makes this apartment unique

Walk score 98! Walk, bus, Max transit, street car, trolley, car to go, just blocks away. Great food, fun shopping, largest city park (5100 acres!) in the US just blocks away. But then walk up to this peaceful apartment and you will feel like you are in the country..Walk to The Pearl and Powell's book store too.

The best stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you are fortunate enough to stay at this lovely property (it gets snatched up quickly), you are in for a treat. We (2 adults and a very small human) absolutely loved it. Walking distance to all the great offerings on NW 23rd, Trader Joe’s, etc. It was very quiet in the evening - which is helpful when parents need sleep:). Plenty of nightlife if you need it, a quiet location steps from everything when you want a break:). The windows appear brand new which was a nice bonus for safety (again small human) and overall comfort during our stay.

The apartment was tastefully furnished with everything we could ever need..and more. The owner is one of the best we’ve encountered. Super kind and quick to reply should you ever need anything. We made use of the backyard with our little guy and enjoyed coffee on the beautiful front porch. There is so much to do in this area - bars, dining, shopping. Running trails are within easy reach. I walked to Washington Park a great deal. Bus and transit lines easilty accessible, as are immediate rideshare and bike rentals.

You will not find a better value or location. I had a car (which I rarely had to use). I was fortunate to receive a parking permit during my stay.

Thank you for an amazing stay! We would love to return again. Highly recommended.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had an exceptionally great time (3months from April to June) at Nancy’s place. The location (close to 23rd and its shops, cafes, bars and restaurants) is purely amazing. The apartment is neatly furnished and provided a homely feel after just a couple of days! I would definitely like to come back and do recommend that place.

However, let me also point out some mediocre items: The internet (one connection for four apartments) was fairly bad and did not allow using any TV streaming. The sofa and bed (its mattress) are old and worn out. I have recommended to Nancy to get both exchanged. Finally, the heating system (was installed afterwards) is awkward. The heat is funneled into the kitchen, which makes you feel like being in a sauna, whereas the other rooms do nearly not receive any warm air at all. (There are two small supportive devices in the office and the bedroom though) On top, the device is extremely loud and purely a nuisance if you want to enjoy a meal with you family.

If you don't mind any of those, this will possibly be the best place to stay in Portland!

A real home stay

  • 5 of 5

An extremely lovely apartment that's furnished to make it cozy, comfortable and relaxing as one's own home. And the location is fantastic: walking distance to restaurants, bars, bakeries, Trader Joe's, and lots of eclectic shops. Plus public transport is also nearby, so a car is really unnecessary. And check out the thrift store across the street--interesting just to browse. And Nancy, who oversees the property, couldn't be nicer, more helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

Charming location Charming space!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this charming home. It was clean and so very comfortable to come home to. We loved the bed and very comfortable couch. The home is really well stocked with little extras for the bathroom and kitchen. It is a very safe and fun neighborhood to explore at night being close to many cute shops and restaurants. We especially loved walking to BeSaws for breakfast and Bambo Sushi for dinner. Best sushi I have ever had! The green machine is a must. Super convenient to have Trader Joes right across the street as well. We also enjoyed walking to the Rose Gardens in Washington Park. We ended up being spontaneous and renting a car for a couple days to head to the beach. It was so super convenient to take a day trip and have a parking pass for the street when we came home that night.

Nancy was great at communicating through the whole process and made sure we were comfortable through checking in by text. Would highly recommend to anyone. Cannot beat the location, value and charming qualities of this property. I am also a VRBO owner of vacation rentals and have pretty high standards. Hope to be back Nancy! Thank you!
