Great flat in an even greater location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Nest. It's comfortable and well-equipped - everything we needed, for sure - and it's so well-located for a fun stay in Portland. Lots of info provided and the communication from Deb was professional and thorough. We'll be back again for sure!

Our Favorite Portland Home!

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to post a great review, because I want to keep this spot just for us! It is a lovely home, in a great location, fully furnished with absolutely everything to make a wonderful stay. Debbie the owner is helpful, pleasant and easy to work with. Our family can get together to cook and eat, walk downtown or hang out in the comfortable rooms. We love this place!

Lovely "nest" in NW / Nob Hill neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully appointed and the neighborhood is quiet and pretty. Easy walking to shopping on NW 23rd, and to the NS streetcar to downtown. All the amenities were there - umbrellas in case it rained, lots and lots of towels, comfortable beds, kitchen well-stocked with everything for cooking in or just having breakfast in the antique-filled dining room. We are bird-watchers so we especially enjoyed the bird-themed decor! The owner provided all the information we needed to get around and make our stay memorable. We hope we can return!
