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 I took this outdated house and transformed it into comfortable modern home with all updates amenities.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 beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely 2 BR apartment with top of the line furnishings. It is spacious, clean, in a quiet neighbor and has easy access to Portland. The only reason we didn't rate it as 5-star was because of the common entryway. The owners live upstairs and use the same entrance as renters, which also means their TV is audible if you are in the main hallway. Not a big deal, really, and we would definitely stay there again. Warren was very responsive.

Wonderful! Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Warren's place was perfect for our visit with both of our adult kids and their families who now live in Vancouver. First of all, the place is gorgeous inside and out. Beautiful furnishings and landscaping. The beds were very comfortable (and we are super picky about that!) The living room has very comfy couches, large TV and the pool table was enjoyed by all. The kitchen is spacious and very well-supplied with everything we needed. (Enjoyed the nice dishes and big coffee cups.) Having laundry facilities was extremely helpful and Warren's wife was very kind to help a little in that area. The patio was my favorite with a gorgeous, peaceful, garden-like backyard - perfect for family photos. And Warren, so kind, helpful and friendly. He was so easy to work with, and always just a text away. We came home with lasting memories with our kids - we hadn't all been together in 3 years. Thank you Warren! We'll definitely be back!

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.
