A classic mid century brick home in the heart of some of the best restaurants and night life in Portland. The comfortable home sleeps six with a sunny patio to enjoy, and peaceful yard with a giant Deodora cedar tree.
You’ll be located a block from the junction of 28th and Belmont on a picturesque residential street, with easy access to the Belmont district, 28th Avenue “Restaurant Row”, Burnside, Hawthorne and Division St/Clinton districts. If you are comfortable walking, cycling, and taking the bus you don’t need a car. The bus 15 is a block away, and takes you downtown, and to the Pearl District and NW 23rd, and connects with the light rail system (MAX), in the other direction it takes you to Mt Tabor Park. It takes about 45 minutes to walk the 2.2 miles to downtown’s Pioneer Courthouse Square along a pleasant route. Laurelhurst Park and Colonel Summers Park are each within 10 blocks. Whole Foods, Zupans, and Safeway grocery stores are all within 10 blocks.

Matt grew up in Portland, and after traveling and exploring, we are very happy to be home again in Portland.
Laurie and Matt purchased this house in 1999
This is a great spot to live, and to appreciate the best of what Portland has to offer. Once we are home at the end of the work day we can ditch our cars and walk to everything we need, great grocery shopping, seasonal farmers markets, parks, restaurants, bakeries and dessert spots, bars, and nightlife. There is more to do in our neighborhood than we have time to enjoy.
What makes inner Portland so walkable to amenities is the density. Most homes are tightly grouped with small yards. We have the luxury of large yard, anchored by a giant Deadora Cedar, allowing a place to enjoy the outside just out the back door.
This property is so thoughtfully furnished, it's far beyond any vacation rental we've used in the past. We especially appreciated the full selection of kitchen cookware; the clothes trees, luggage stands, and dresser drawers in the bedrooms; and the good books, TV/VCR, and wi-fi. The location is terrific -- quiet but walking distance from lots of good restaurants and local shops. All the soaps and detergents provided are high quality natural products. We were grateful for the basement laundry after our sometimes muddy hiking expeditions in greater Portland area. A cozy comfortable home away from home!
Very comfortable, spacious and clean. Feels like home away from home.
We had a very good time and everything was clean and as advertised. Laurie was very prompt with information and very helpful. Great location!
If you are looking for great accommodations in Portland, Oregon, look no further. This property has three bedrooms, living room with cable TV and Internet service, dining room and a complete kitchen. Additionally, there is a washer and dryer in the basement.
What's really great is the location. This property is centrally located within Portland and is easily accessed via major roadways for side trips to Mt. Hood, Astoria, the ocean, etc. One can also walk to reasonably priced restaurants with a wide range of tastes.
If you have a large family and looking for outstanding accommodations, I would definitely recommend this home. My family -- daughter, son-in-law, and two grandkids -- had a great stay.
The house is clean and beautiful. My roommates and I came from different areas on the US and Canada to finish a Montessori teacher training, so we were doing a lot of studying and the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful for us to get a lot of work done. When we needed a break from studying we has many places to choose from. We had Hawthorn and Belmont St on one side and on the other side we had Stark and Burnside St. all with great places to eat. Location is great! Laurie and Matt are very friendly and helpful. If we ever needed anything they would respond right away. If I'm ever in Portland area I would stay here again!
I have been traveling to and living in Portland for the past three summers and this was by far the best, cleanest and most comfortable house I have encountered. Not to mention these are the most responsive landlords. This beautiful and cozy home is in a prime location and on a beautiful street in Portland. Trust you me, you will not regret choosing this place. It was hard to leave such a lovely place and easy to feel right at home in this house.
