Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Portland - Pearl On The Park
Ideal for a Corporate or Longer-Term Stay in Central Portland, With Parking
Welcome! We are delighted to welcome guests requiring a corporate or longer-stay apartment to our beautiful apartment condominium in one of America's most livable, friendly, culturally diverse cities.
Located in the amazing Pearl District (near everything!!), our apartment condo is on the fourth floor of a five-story small, high-quality building. The apartment has a beautiful southern exposure with french doors leading to a small patio overlooking a lively urban environment.
There's a separate bedroom, not a studio or loft. The king mattress is a top-of-the-line because I believe that a good night's sleep is among the most important things to one's quality of life. The bed has 400-thread-count sheet and topped it with a beautiful Restoration Hardware linen duvet and shams.
The living room has a samsung HD Smart TV, custom leather sofa with 44-inch seat, and two chunky and very comfortable chairs with rich upholstery and nailhead trim.
The bathroom is fairly spacious and has lots of storage and a bathtub with shower.
I love the kitchen; it has everything you could possibly require to cook - which, with the amazing restaurants in the immediate area, you may not care to do, but it's there if you want. Pots and pans are by Calphalon, dishes are by Z Gallerie. We offer a Breville espresso machine as well as a Chemex, with plenty of coffee for both. (Portland isn't Portland without plenty of great coffee.)
The best thing about the apartment is its location in the Pearl District of Portland. You walk outside the front door of the condo building and can enjoy a beautiful park across the street .. Or you can turn right and find Glyph, a wonderful coffee/tea/light meal spot with beautiful glass-topped tables featuring gorgeous artwork beneath the glass (owned by a professor at Reed) … or walk out of the condo building to the left, turn left at the corner, and find an old-fashioned coffee shop with stools at the counter.
From the apartment stroll to dine at the famous Andina, see live performances at the Armory, enjoy a movie at the wonderful Living Room, grab a burger at Life of Riley's, get cozy over cocktails at the Parish. It's all right there and all outstanding.
Welcome to our Pearl on the Park in Portland! We are delighted to welcome you. Please let me know how i can help make your stay a special one.

I'm an American and Greg is Barbadian. We live on the beautiful island of Barbados in the Caribbean. Between us we've raised five wonderful children and we're in the stage of life now where we are able to balance satisfying work with enriching leisure.
We are in the US a great deal, as well as Canada and Europe. What can I say, we love to travel. Few places have gotten under our skin like Portland, Oregon, however, and we're delighted to have the opportunity to buy a pretty one-bedroom apartment as a vacation home there that we can rent out to other Portland-lovers.
Owner purchased this condo in 2014
Why Owner chose Portland
We've been visiting Portland for 12 years, have always loved the vibrancy of this sophisticated small city, and finally decided to buy a place. We knew we wanted a place where we could walk everywhere and that's why we bought in the Pearl District. When we don't want to walk, Portland's light rail is two blocks away.
What makes this condo unique
After viewing a number of properties on the market in Portland, Greg knew the moment we walked into the one that became ours that it was The One. I followed suit about five minutes later. We were attracted by the layout, which features high ceilings and a long curved wall that opens into a beautiful kitchen/dining/living area with French door to a patio overlooking city buildings.
We loved the southern exposure, the tons of storage it offered, the spacious bedroom which accommodated a king bed and large dresser, the open kitchen with new black granite counters, the laundry room with terrific Bosch appliances. We loved that we could make this place our own while also making it exquisitely comfy for visitors who also wanted a homey, decked-out apartment in Portland where you can walk absolutely anywhere you want to go: cinema, theater, restaurants galore, coffee shops, little nooks of shops as well as major department stores like Nordstrom and Restoration Hardware.
We decorated and put the apartment on the rental market in February 2014. We are excited to use the apartment ourselves and delighted to offer it to others who love Portland as much as we do.
