About Warren Merrill

“Hello”, “Hola” I have traveled all around the world, but call Vancouver home since 2003. Up until recently I have lived in this; my family home, with my father, and my wife, Isabel, Café, a dachshund is our family dog and quite the charmer! I am the Principal of a Construction Company, We Do Everything Business & Home Services, Inc., and this is our Model Home that showcases all the great work we do. I took this outdated house and transformed it into comfortable modern home with all updates amenities. Since my father lived with us until 2013, my home was designed to be comfortable for two families to live together, but not be in each others way! I've been an Entrepreneur my entire life and I love meeting and socializing with people from all around the world, so it just made sense to try out the Vacation Rental business. We are an English and Spanish speaking home. I took this 1969 old split level house and transformed it into what it is today… a modern home with all the newest amenities, not a pretentious showroom, but a comfortable, peaceful home that I’m sure your will enjoy, with a Northwest style, we look forward to meet you all.

Warren Merrill purchased this house in 2003

Why Warren Merrill chose Southwest Washington

This is a great alternative to a 'bottled up hotel room'. Arrive in time for dinner, we just might invite you up. PRIVATE ACCESS. PEACEFUL. CLOSE to everything and EASY access to all freeways and the airport. OUR home is a perfect home base to all the wonderful day trips that the Vancouver/Portland area offers.

What makes this house unique

Golf can be just moments away. This is a well suited home away from home. My home is different from any split level home you've been in. Travertine tile and hard wood flooring is used throughout, with knotty-wood pine doors and trims that make you think of grandma's house! It is our Model Home with all the newest amenities, not pretentious showroom, but a comfortable, peaceful home that I’m sure your will enjoy. We look forward to meet you all, COME stay and enjoy!

A very pleasant property and experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely home for 3 full days while we toured Portland and surrounding nature areas, such as Mount Hood and Multnomah Falls. The property is located in Vancouver in close proximity to the Portland airport and downtown. It is in a nice, quiet neighborhood with very pleasant foliage and surroundings.

The rental is the bottom floor of the home occupied by the owner named Warren, who literally will go out of his way to make sure you have a pleasant experience and have everything you need. You will have private access to the bottom floor and street side parking which eliminates any costs associated with hotel parking.

We found the rental to be delightful with 2 bedrooms and very comfortable beds, a fully equipped, modern kitchen, full size washer and dryer, and all the amenities you would want, including wireless Internet. You cannot go wrong in renting this property. I highly recommend it – in aggregate, it is far superior to any decent hotel room you might be considering at roughly equal the cost.

Owner's Response: The Doctor and his Lovely, wife were a pleasure to acquaint, they got herein late Saturday night so we missed them at our Saturday breakfast, I did meet them Saturday evening and answered a few questions about the terrific Portland/Vancouver area and the home, we'd, welcome them back anytime. Many others have opined that the beds are super comfortable, the yard has twelve cedars and over forty conifers, with flowers in bloom from March through November; I wish the Doctor would come back in late April to see all the rhododendrons in full bloom as we have over thirty on the property.

Really Nice Location, Accommodations and Company

  • 5 of 5

My family of four that includes two teens stayed three nights while visiting family last weekend. I cannot say how comfortable and pleased we were staying in Warren's model home. Our only regret was not enough time visiting with Warren! Everything was top notch, well appointed and very private feeling.

My Model Home is an ideal and welcoming home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were guests at Warren's for five nights and had a wonderful stay which offered peace and quiet, and also easy access to the area's attractions. We agree with the reviews: the photos are accurate, the rooms were immaculate, comfortable, and the combination of indoor/outdoor living was perfect for our needs. It is centrally located for activities in the Vancouver/Portland areas, and in a quiet, safe residential location with friendly neighbours. We were especially impressed with the layout of the rooms, which offered areas of quiet whilst other family members could have their freedom. As I had a good deal of work to do, the wifi offered easy access to the office, and the layout provided peace to do the work, while other family members could relax. The bathroom and kitchen areas are separate from the bedrooms and living areas, which provides privacy, if needed. The bedroom and living areas offer good entertainment and are comfy like home. The beds are super comfortable (I'd like to find the mattresses and pillows; they were so comfortable). Last, but not least, it is a cook's kitchen, if you prefer to eat at home, and you can easily eat on the patio table, which is off the kitchen and shaded from the sun. It's also a lovely spot for refreshment after being out all day. Warren, his wife, and Café have the grace of being welcoming and friendly, but also respecting privacy. I don't think they could have done anything more to make our stay more enjoyable, and was sorry not to be able to say thank you in person. If in the area, it would be a pleasure to stay here again.

Our stay was wonderful and Warren and Co. were very helpful in making our stay great! Went for a wedding and found the location to be very convenient and the neighborhood very nice. The house was great and we did enjoy our time there with each other as well as Cafe' from upstairs!

Wonderful Home-Away-From-Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were guests of Warren's for eight nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Photos very accurately reflect the rental's inviting decor and immaculate cleanliness, but can't possibly capture the comfort of the beds and couches, convenience of the huge modern kitchen, fun of the pool table and peacefulness of the backyard garden! Warren made sure we had excellent information about activities and adventures in the area. He also treated us to several five-star breakfasts . . . including one of delicious pancakes he cooked according to his grandmother's recipe. We were very pleased that the rental placed us conveniently between Mount St. Helen's, Portland, OR & Vancouver, WA and the Columbia River Gorge. It was very easy to explore in all directions - including both the Washington and Oregon sides of the Columbia River Gorge. I highly recommend Warren's rental and would be thrilled to stay with him again. The morning we left to return home, Warren asked what he could have done to make our stay more enjoyable. I looked at my husband and two adult daughters and we were all shaking our heads, shrugging our shoulders and saying, "Nothing!"
