Second time at this beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at The Feathered Nest. The house is completely comfortable and private for 2 couples. The kitchen is a dream although with all the incredible restaurants within an easy walk you may fine yourself eating out all the time. We especially loved the Mediterranean Territorial Company. The Pearl district is just a few blocks away and 21st and 23rd streets, with great shops & restaurants, is just a little further. I know this will not be our last trip here!

Beautiful home, great location, just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 had a wonderful trip while staying in a Feathered Nest. We found the space in perfect condition and it had everything we could have needed. Our hosts were very responsive and helped us locate a lost item.

I would stay there again in a heart beat if I find myself in Portland again.

Stop looking and book this place!

We loved our stay at the Nest. We were 2 couples and it was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

There was a lovely bottle of wine and coffe beans with a welcome sign. The kitchen had everything you need to cook. There were extra touches of things in the bathroom and the washer dryer came in very handy. We loved the neighborhood. There were great places to explore in all areas. And when we wanted to arrive an hour early it was extremely easy to contract the owner.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

i can't say enough good things about this home. The kitchen was perfect- spacious and thoroughly stocked. The beds were so comfortable and the bathrooms had an abundance of towels for our comfort. Loved the front porch where we played Scrabble and relaxed. We're greeted with a bottle of wine and fresh coffee beans we could grind in the lovely kitchen. Close to everything in downtown Portland.

Beautiful, convenient hideaway in Portland

  • 5 of 5

Stayed three nights in this quaint, convenient two-bedroom in Nob Hill. The property is located just three blocks from the Pearl district and about a mile from Washington Park. It is also within close walking distance of several shops, restaurants and grocery stores. It is located on a quiet street and is great to come home to after a day of exploring.

The property has two private suites (one upstairs and one downstairs), a nicely appointed kitchen, and a great dining room, sitting room, sun room and back patio. We made good use of all of these.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights in mid-August 2017.

Booking and advance arrangements were very efficiently handled by Debra. We found the house easily (navigating the Alphabet district in PDX is very straightforward). We appreciated the welcome bottle of wine and coffee along with the binder of local tips and recommendations.

The configuration is ideal for couples or families with young kids that can share a bed. Parking is on the street and permits are provided by the homeowner. Everything you can think of is available within walking distance. Great restaurants on 21st and 23rd, downtown a 10-15 min walk away and a coffee shop on the corner. Rental bikes are also available nearby. My wife and daughter even found time to go to a soccer game at Providence Park, which is also within walking distance.

The house is very well maintained and fitted with premium appliances, furniture and fixtures. The owners are available for any questions or issues although we did not encounter any.

5 stars - will look to stay here again next time we are in PDX.

PROS: Central, clean, spacious and well appointed

CONS: (not related to property) - VRBO booking fee is excessive
