The Best of the Best

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot say enough good things about this property – everything about it was perfect. A beautiful house in a lovely neighborhood. Very complete instructions for a comfortable visit (such as how to sign onto the wi-fi) and closing the house, as well as information about the area’s restaurants and attractions. Thoughtful details everywhere – big closets with wooden hangers, luggage racks, a well-appointed kitchen, comfortable beds with quality linens, luxurious showers, a parking pass for the neighborhood, umbrellas by the door, coasters on the side tables. And everything was sparkling clean, orderly, beautiful, and in perfect shape. I could not have asked for more. These property owners are wonderful!

Once Again...The Best!

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed in what I call "My Portland Home" 5 or 6 times now and each time it is the same high-quality experience. The house is always immaculate and everything you could need is provided. The location is awesome. We always just park the car for our whole visit and walk everywhere; its so easy to 23rd AND downtown.

This time, we had a little plumbing issue - the sink in the upstairs bathroom backed up. Well, you would think in a VRBO situation that it would be a total inconvenience, but it was not! Robbie and Debbie had a plumber there within an hour (we were out at the time) and the problem was fixed so fast it was as if it had never happened - FANTASTIC OWNERS!

I love this place and it pains me to write these great reviews because I know that just means it will be harder and harder to book this awesome place! It really is the best of the best.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot recommend the Nest highly enough! The house is beautifully maintained and well appointed. Everything was super clean and exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Debbie was extremely welcoming and helpful, and we felt completely at home. So many great restaurants and shops are in easy walking distance (definitely check out World Cup Coffee and Brix Tavern).

Portlandia Experience

  • 5 out of 5
Well equipped, excellent location and very comfortably furnished to make a visit/vacation in Portland worry free. We walked to food, drink, shopping, sightseeing and our son's wedding reception down at the Tiffany Center. A wonderful ten day retreat to celebrate with family and friends. The upstairs was also rented by family for the event, and the house was a great gathering center. It was a mega hit....

We spent 3 great nights at The Nest. It was our first time to visit Portland and this location is great for exploring the NW neighborhoods and the Pearl District on foot. You can really see, shop and eat to your hearts content. The Pittock Mansion is a short drive from the house and was worth seeing. If you have a car, finding parking can be a bit tricky but it's doable. Hint...come in a compact car, not a giant SUV or a truck.

We visited in July and the weather was uncharacteristically hot! Ninety plus degrees. We had the ground floor with the second bedroom being on the second floor. The first floor was nice and cool, as it is air conditioned. The second floor bedroom was very, very hot as it is not air conditioned and sleeping was uncomfortable.

HOWEVER, everything else in The Nest was terrific. It could not have been any better!! Everything was fresh, spotless and comfy. The kitchen was so much fun..well stocked with dinnerware, glasses and had great cooking equipment. Cooking some of our meals on vacation was actually fun. The sun porch was delightful and a great place to read and relax! The backyard area was comfortable and we were able to grill. The master bath was very nice and had a great tub that can accommodate someone over six foot tall. Do not hesitate to stay at the Nest. We plan to return.

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.
