About the property

1 bdrm, 1 bath apartment

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 Willamette Heights

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.

A great spot for a little getaway.

The apartment in Nob Hill was a good little base for a little cycling, hiking and exploring. It was clean and comfortable. Julie was easy to communicate with and very prompt to reply to messages. Thank you!

a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to Julie and Mickey's beautiful apartment. We love everything about it. It is in a quiet location, tastefully decorated, and everything was in great working order. The neighborhood has a delicious bakery called St. Honore. We will definitely be back!

I recently stayed 3 nights in Portland. You couldn't ask for a better location! It is within easy walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well appointed, just perfect for my visit. Thank you Julie!

Delightful studio home in NW PDX!

  • 5 of 5

We'll be back to stay again at this lovely little apartment where we just spent 5 nights. The layout is great, and it's got beautiful built-ins and mouldings, gorgeous oak floors and stone bathroom floors. A comfy Queen bed, a view of the lovely yard and bird-feeders. Noticed the foot-falls of the upstairs neighbors but only right at bed time, and it wasn't bad at all. Our wifi signal went down overnight one time, but the owner was able to reboot it remotely and all was well. The kitchen is very well equipped, the towels are soft and fluffy. Parking permits were provided. And the whole house is just so charming, located in a great, walking neighborhood. Practically perfect in every way for 2 people!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot to come home to after a long day exploring Portland and the surrounding areas. We took day trips to the Mt. Hood area, wine tasting region, and Cannon Beach and enjoyed coming back to this clean and comfortable apartment each evening. The location was perfect for a quick walk to local restaurants and bars and just a short Uber ride to other popular areas/restaurants. Now having explored the city, Nob Hill was definitely one of the best areas to stay and we are glad we did!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for three nights - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The owner was very communicative, sending information a few weeks before our check in. The code access made it easy to get in and out, and we didn't have to worry about carrying/losing a key. The apartment is perfect for a couple, with a separate living space and full size kitchen appliances. Most importantly, the location can't be beat! We spent one full day just walking up and down NW 23rd and checking out all the great shops and restaurants. Access to downtown and MAX was easy via streetcar and bus.

During the months of March through December on Saturday mornings, you can go to the Portland Farmers Market where you'll find fresh organic fruits, vegetables, and homemade breads and condiments. 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.

If you have a car, you can get to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge to see Multnomah Falls and/or Vista Point or take a hike on one of the many trails located in the Gorge within 40 minutes. 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.
