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

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.

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

3RD TIME AT THE NEST...STILL THE BEST!

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed here 3 times now. It is far and above the best VRBO in Portland I have stayed in (and we have stayed in PLENTY). The location is great for walking - pubs, restaurants, Powell's, downtown, 23rd are all within minutes. The house itself is always perfectly clean and has everything we need.

I have stayed here with different groups of people: friends and family. Everyone from my 80-year-old father-in-law to my down-right-picky British friend loved the Nest! We consider the Nest our Portland home and we can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting the city. Thank you again, Debbie and Robbie for creating this amazing oasis in the city.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 out of 5
We could not have been happier with our first VRBO experience! The Feathered Nest was truly a home away from home. It was incredibly clean, furnished comfortably and stylishly, had every item we could possibly need, want or dream of, and was in the ideal location. We had trouble operating the washer and Debbie was there within 15 minutes to help us. We loved having Netflix and tons of Portland area maps, books, menus, and magazines all over the house. We loved the 23rd Ave area - great shops and restaurants! If we return to Portland, I would not hesitate staying here again and I highly recommend it to anyone who plans to visit Portland.

COUPLES WEEK

My wife and I stayed at the nest for six nights. It is a well kept two bedroom home in a great location for enjoying Portland nightlife. Close to many great restaurants and bars. Owneres were great to work with. Second bedroom upstairs affords privacy for two couples. We will be back.

PERFECT FIT

  • 5 out of 5
Ideal place for the adventurous person, couple, family. Close enough to the city to walk, far enough to have quiet. Beautiful home! We rented bikes and toured the entire city.

LOVELY HOME IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
My three business partners and I used this home for a week of strategic planning and team building. It's a great layout for work with a large table in the dining room, and there are enough places for people to break away on their own for a phone call or break. All of the rooms are warm and inviting. The kitchen is large and up to the task of preparing a meal for a group.

The location is wonderful. The street is quiet and tree lined, making time on the sunporch with windows open a treat.

"The Nest" is a fabulous place to stay when visiting Portland as it has everything you could ask for in a house. It is decorated perfectly & located in a beautiful neighborhood that is in between the shops & eateries on 23rd ave & the breweries, restaurants & shops in The Pearl district. The bottle of wine & coffee left to welcome us was a very nice touch, and Debbie was very helpful to us when we checked in. All in all a great place to stay!!
