Overview

About the property

TL #91016

One of the best benefits of this property is that it's in a quiet, residential neighborhood yet just one block from all of the action of NW Portland, and a short streetcar ride (or walk) to the Pearl District and Downtown!

If you like to walk and explore, this is such a lovely neighborhood in which to do that. No car is necessary for your stay here. (Please see note about parking below.)

The streetcar and bus stops are 1 1/2 blocks from the house at 23rd and Marshall. The MAX lightrail lines to and from the airport are downtown and can be reached via the streetcar, bus, or cab.

* outdoor patio and sitting area

* free WiFi

*fully equipped kitchen

*pillow top queen sized mattress

*2 blocks from streetcar

While here explore our Historic Alphabet District or jump the streetcar for a dozen blocks to Portland’s trend setting Pearl District. If you’d like to see the city on two wheels Portland is very “bicycle friendly” offering continuous bike lanes including a wonderful ride around the Willamette Riverfront. If you’re interested in local hiking Portland hosts a 5,000 acre old-growth canopy of fir trees called Forest Park. Consider a visit to our Japanese Gardens, Chinese Gardens, Rose Gardens at Washington Park or The Portland Zoo and Arboretum all just minutes away. With easy access to major highways plan a day trip to our local wine country, Mt Hood, Oregon Coast or the Columbia River Gorge.

**NOTE: This location is accessible from Portland’s train station or airport via MAX line and street trolley. We are in a permitted parking neighborhood.

Parking on our street is restricted to 4-hour intervals during the hours of 9am-7pm Monday thru Saturday. If you choose to have a car during your stay, we can supply you with ONE parking permit per every 3 days you are staying. Unrestricted, free parking is available 2 blocks from the house.

About Julie Hoffman

I moved here 20 years ago following a visit where I fell in love with Portland's 'not so big' size and European feel. My business partner is native to the area and shares my feelings about the city's energy and diversity.

Julie Hoffman purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Julie Hoffman chose Portland

Not unlike as it was in the early 1900's showing its prosperity, our NW neighborhood has seen a revival spurred on by gentrification. As such, we have renovated this Historic Beauty over the past 15 years trying to keep the original circa 1900 feel.

In the backyard, the setting is tranquil with a great soft-scaped patio space.

What makes this apartment unique

As good as it gets; just a block off NW 23rd Avenue where you’ll find boutiques, local shops, well-known stores, antiques and galleries, European Bakeries, brew pubs, coffee shops and fabulous restaurants!

I love the history of the building and how the turn-of-the-century character has been preserved in its details.

A lovely, private patio to relax or dine al fresco on is just steps outside the front door.

There's music and food trucks and a lovely setting in the South Park Blocks of downtown by the PSU campus.

You can get to the ModaCenter, Portland's sports arena and largest music venue, and to the Convention Center on the east side by streetcar as well. Washington Park with the Japanese Gardens and the Rose Garden is also within walking distance.

Or drive west to the Oregon coast in an hour and a half where you'll find even more breathtaking hikes and the dramatic splendor of the Pacific coast.

Beautiful apartment! Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Julie was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Street parking is always a concern because the area neighborhoods are so popular, but I always seemed to find a place to park that was very close to the apartment – sometimes even right in front! The property had a very homey and welcoming feel. Thank you for a great stay!

Clean and great location

  • 4 of 5

The place was very clean and well appointed. Location great for public transportation, shopping, dinner and drinks. Small issue with the door lock and it was quickly handled by the owners. Would recommend for quiet evenings.

So glad we found this little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this property! Not only was it beautiful inside, it was exactly as shown and described. The owners have thought of every detail. It was spotlessly clean, and in the perfect neighbourhood. We were able to walk to so many amazing restaurants and even downtown several times. We thought we'd need transit but we just walked everywhere. 23rd St is one block over and the hub of Nob Hill. I highly recommend!

Peaceful beauty

We loved our stay in apt 3. It was beautifully decorated, clean, lovely surroundings, easy parking, comfortable bed, complete kitchen, and quiet. We are looking forward to staying here again. Can't think of a single thing to correct!
