About Debbie Mills

We are originally from the UK & Canada, have traveled extensively in the US and Europe using vacation rentals. We have been coming to Portland for many years and love the city. It is a paradise for walking, cycling, eating and drinking, and you do not need a car! We have 2 places in prime locations, the Feathered Nest is one of them.

Debbie Mills purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Debbie Mills chose Pearl District

The architects who converted this 100 year old house into 2 units did a great job of maintaining the old charm while adding modern amenities, we have recently upgraded the property again. It is a home from home in the absolute best area in Portland.

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance to restaurants, bars, breweries, theaters, light rail, parks, the river, downtown & the Pearl district, the Timbers soccer stadium, Lots of separate spaces, a peaceful porch and sun room for reading and rain watching. Large dining room, living room and kitchen.

Great location, very cozy house

  • 4 of 5

This house was in a great location, walking distance to the Pearl District and even downtown. Perfect for two couples traveling together as there is a bedroom/bathroom both upstairs and downstairs. Everything you need to cook, relax and explore Portland!

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie, Thank you for the follow up. We had a great stay but unfortunately Saturday was a bit tough getting out by 11am with an evening flight. I know the late checkout was never promised, but we did not anticipate anyone else wanting to check in on a Saturday. Other than that- we very much enjoyed the house!! Dear Julie, Thank you for responding to our question of a less than 5 star review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately, we could not accommodate a late departure with new guests arriving the same day. We are pleased it was not a reflection of our property. Thank you, Debbie & Robbie

Amazing Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at The Nest for 6 nights in April 2015 and could easily have stayed for a month. We found everything as described in the listing, and more. We were very impressed with the quality of the amenities and detailed attention to the comfort of guests. We had everything we needed and were welcomed with a bottle of wine and Stumptown coffee beans! Our niece was traveling with us so the second floor bedroom suite was ideal for her privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed the sunroom. The location is ideal in a lovely, quiet neighborhood within easy walking of shops, restaurants and markets. We really loved this place and can't say enough about it. Debbie was wonderful to work with and thought of everything. We decided we would return to Portland just to stay at The Nest again!

The Nest is Always Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent visitor to this property, I must say it never gets old. We LOVE the Nest. Every time I walk in the door, I let out a big sigh of relief and exclaim out loud, "Oh yes!!! We are HOME!!!"

The newest addition to the Nest is the totally great: just in time for great weather, Robbie and Debbie have added a little patio oasis to the backyard; when you are back there you don't even feel like you are in a big city. We were in town for a wedding. Did we go? No. Did we instead sit out back under the huge shade tree in the gorgeous weather drinking fantastic beer from Rogue Brewery (right up the road) and amazing cured meats and fresh fruit from the City Market (also right up the road)? Yes, yes we did! Do we feel guilty? Ok, a little! It was worth it!

The upstairs bathroom was also just remodeled and it is SO NICE. Granite countertops, subway tiles, a large shower head and glass door make it really beautiful. It matches the rest of the house now. The whole house now has the greatest feeling of really being on a luxury vacation.

Whether it is your first time or your 10th time at the Nest, you will find it to be the cleanest, most well stocked, private, comfortable, and relaxing house in the best location of Portland. Park your car and walk to everything you need. Relax and enjoy the Nest, the owners have done all the work for you!

Phenomenal property

  • 5 of 5

The owners care and attention is evident in all of the small details they have thoughtfully included. A wonderful location on a quiet one way street within easy walking distance of both the Pearl District and NW23rd Street, as well as the street car line (one of Portland's many great public transit options).

Spacious, CLEAN and nicely decorated, the front porch, sunroom, nicely appointed kitchen, large dining room, comfortable living/family area, first floor master en suite and lovely upstairs bedroom and bathroom offer some of the best lodging options in the city.

As very experienced users of VRBO, I have to say this is the nicest property we have stayed at irregardless of cost. I have no hesitation in highly recommending a stay here and hope to return myself.

Thank you Debra and Ronnie!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Debra has thought of everything! We spent a lot of time in the sunroom enjoying coffee before the start of our day. We enjoyed using the wonderful kitchen with so many high-end appliances and accessories.Debra provided lots of resources for what to do in Portland. Slept very well in the comfortable beds. We would love to return and stay here again. It was so nice to be welcomed with a complimentary bottle of wine and local coffee beans for the next morning. This place is well worth it!!
