Why Desi Van Til & Sean Mewshaw chose Portland

The West End is the last truly residential neighborhood in the Portland Peninsula and with its beautiful, wide tree-lined streets adorned with remarkable historic buildings and lovely gardens, it seemed like the perfect place to live and play with our daughter, while still being plugged into the vibrant life and amazing restaurants of Portland's downtown. What we love about this home is how it is flooded with light at any time of day, has all the charm and details of an antique home but all the comforts of a modern one.

#1 out of many dozens

  • 5 out of 5
We rent houses, mostly off of vrbo, approximately 5-7 times a year, and this house has been the best we have ever rented, ever.

Our entire family (parents and 4 children) loved this house. It is spacious - and although many are, the differentiation is that this house is both spacious and well thought out. It is clear that people who love it have furnished it and live in it. The decor is such that I took many photographs of it as inspiration for when we get around to redecorating our own house. (Kitchen is the most pleasant and inspirational I have ever seen.) Bedding is cozy and restful. Details are thoughtful - everything, from the books on the bookshelves to the pictures hanging on the walls. We felt like we were being welcomed as loved houseguests, rather than merely weekend renters. They left fresh blueberries and farm eggs for us in the fridge and tipped us off to a Saturday morning farmer's market the next day!

The neighborhood is wonderful and quiet, though walkable at <10 minutes (with children) to the district with all the good restaurants. Parking was not an issue, though I had worried about this -- on the quiet street in front, you have up to 2 hr parking after 9am, which is perfectly fine if you are a tourist planning on touring! - or you can park 100 feet away around the corner for no charge and no trouble.

Their caretaker (Brendan) left us a note + fresh blueberries and farm fresh eggs in the refrigerator. This place is wonderful. We loved everything about it.

We absolutely loved it

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed a week here and absolutely loved it. The house is gorgeously furnished and decorated, and we ended up spending lots of time just hanging out there. The kitchen (which also has an informal TV watching space, plus great collection of DVDs) is really sunny and a lovely space to pass daytimes and evenings in. There's a really nice garden with a very sunny deck and a grill. All bedrooms really nice and very comfortable. The first floor study is a lovely room in which to read. If you have small kids, there's a wonderful and well-stocked playroom, which our 4 year old adored. The neighborhood is quiet and leafy, with a great green space five minutes' walk away. There are some great shops and cafes within walking distance, and downtown Portland is also close enough to walk to. Overall, the week we spent here was the best bit of the best vacation we can remember, and we'd recommend it to anyone. We hope to be back another time!
