Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Portland - WALK SCORE OF 97!!!

Wonderfully located-Close to everything!

Operating permit# is: 16-139625-000-00-HO. This Three bedroom home offers your choice of any 2 out of the three bedrooms (king bed, Queen Bed, or Queen bedrooms with Trundle). The city only allows VRBO to rent 2 out of 3 bedrooms- please call for more details. This lovely vintage home is well liked and sleeps up to 6 adults, and a couple of kids- comfortably in 5 beds/ 3 bathrooms. This home is located just steps from the best that Northwest Portland has to offer- AND we have one dedicated parking space which is super rare in Portland (even though you don't need a car). The home has a walkscore of 97!--dubbed a 'walker's paradise.' The closest grocery store is Trader Joes, and there are 115 restaurants within a 15 minute walk, and nearby parks include Couch Park, Wallace Park, Northwest Raleigh Street, and Campbell Fountain Our home is in the center of the very popular and desirable NW 23rd and 21st Avenues, also known as 'Nob Hill' or the 'Historic Alphabet' district. Walk to Salt and Straw Ice Cream (ONE BLOCK), the Timbers game (less than a mile), and a few blocks from Papa Hayden Restaurant--blocks away from the Good Sumaritan hospital, this area has an eclectic flair, mixing high-fashion and decor with a touch of old-world class. The Nob Hill shopping district is home to the best Europen pastires, northwest coffees, Oregon Micro-brews, fine art, jewelry, pubs, spas, galleries, and rare antiques-- all just steps from this perfectly located home. Even Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, amazing food and desserts at Papa Hayden and Trader Joe's Grocery store are just steps away from my home. In the summer, enjoy the Nob Hill Farmer's Market, right around the corner, and the Summer Concert Series (also right around the corner), at Wallace Park on Thursdays in the summer. Getting to Pearl is just a quick 10 minute walk, or 7 minutes by public transit. The Portland Timbers stadium is walkable too (only 3/4 mile), and you can get to the Zoo, OMSI, and the museum in 15 minutes from here by car, or 25 minutes by transit. Airport, 15 minutes by car, or 30 minutes by public transport and train station is less than 2 miles away. This location is unbeatable! Also, for concerts-- The MODA center, and the Convention center are walkable, easy cab, or public transit. I am serious when I say this location is UNBEATABLE!!!!!

About Lisa

I am a mother of three great kids, and used to be a former financial consultant before becoming a full time mom. I love people, and I love working with people. Having this home has allowed me to have a business on the side which doesn't take away any time from my mohtering duties. I grew up in New Mexico, attended school in San Diego, CA, where I obtained a Business Degree, with a focus on Hotel/Restaurant Mangement. I then spent 10 years of my life in Sonoma, CA, where my kids were born. I love feedback, and I hope that if you decide to stay at the home, that you will like it and come back! I have met so many nice people through VRBO. All my guests are so interesting, amazing-- AND NICE!!!

Lisa purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa chose Portland

This location is perfect, because you can walk to the most popular bars and restaurants and cafes. I love the shopping and the culture of this area. This area of Portland has a very European styled transport system; you can get anywhere by foot or transit; very easily. We want your stay to be as special for you as it is for us.

What makes this house unique

Perfect location! I love walking to everything from this home, and the ability for me to enjoy the wonderful city of Portland without ever having to drive! This location is just perfect! And the views from the home are very peaceful and calming. Dining out on the back deck is super entertaining and private, and I enjoy the 'art of people watching' from my front deck!

Beautiful home in a very vibrant area of Portland

  • 5 of 5

The house was in an area we quickly discovered was one of our favorites in Portland. We spent countless hours shopping and dining on 23rd. Lisa, the owner, left us detailed reviews of her favorite places both near to the house and in the Portland area in general. We tried several of these recommendations and they were spot on. I would highly recommend Portland as a travel destination and you can't go wrong with this home and it's owner. We will definitely be back!

Live like a Portlander (a hip one)

  • 5 of 5

This charming little Victorian home allows you pretend you are a Portland native for a few days, walking to wonderful little shops and restaurants, grocery stores and bakeries. The location is absolutely ideal, yet surprisingly quiet at night when you want to rest.

The home is very clean and very well-equipped. The kitchen is large, bright and gourmet. The dining room is generous and comfortable. All 2.5 bathrooms are very new and spotless, and nicely decorated. The outdoor space is surrounded by greenery, pleasant and private. The beds were comfortable and sheets and towels were good quality. Full laundry facilities in the spotless basement.

I can't see why anyone would opt for a hotel when you can have such a charming, roomy home in the heart of things, for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We keep on coming back to Portland all the way from Vancouver BC to stay at this Victorian luxury home! It is absolutely gorgeous, spacious, clean, just beautiful. We can't wait to stay there every year:) Booking in advance is super recommended as this house books up quick! Having bbqs in the back yard and enjoying our coffees on the front porch is just some of the beautiful amenities that are at this home. Book your stay now because we come back every year:) So many bedrooms - so comfy all I have to say is we love love this home. See you again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fabulous Portland Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was so perfect for our stay in Portland. The house itself was beyond expectations as far as accommodating ourselves and guests with its layout. The location is ideal located in what has to be one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the city. Everything you need is within walking distance and getting to further parts of the city is as easy as any I have ever been to. We fell in love with Portland and our stay at this location was a prime base to making that happen!

Lisa, the owner, is also absolutely wonderful in communicating by providing all information you could possibly need to know and answering any questions that you have. There needs to be more stars for rating this home and owners!

Excellent home in Portland

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and close to shops and restaurants. It was within walking distance of Washington Park, the Japanese Gardens and the International Rose Gardens. The house was clean, spacious and well-equipped. The washer and dryer were an extra bonus. Lisa was very helpful and responsive to all our emails. We were very pleased with the house and would definitely recommend it. If we are ever in Portland again we would certainly rent from Lisa.

A truly fabulous home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We were gathering from across the country for a family wedding and this beautiful Victorian was a perfect way for us enjoy each other and Portland. It is hard to choose which was more special, the spectacular house or the Portland neighborhoods (including downtown) which are within walking distance. Every photo and claim for this property proved to be absolutely true and Lisa made planning our stay seamless.
