GETTING AROUND

We are one block away from the 17 bus line that takes you to the Pearl District and Downtown. We are very close to excellent bike rental shops and bicycle corridors that take you downtown safely and in true PDX style! If you plan to have a car, it is very easy to park at the Villa and to get Downtown or anywhere else in Portland you wish to go.

PERMIT

Our home has a unique B&B permit allowing us to operate as a legal vacation house in Portland. We achieve this by having our housekeeper live in a separate, attached suite on the lower level. This suite is separate from the functioning vacation home with a separate entrance. She is available for help and assistance during your stay if needed, but otherwise will have no other impact on your vacation.

About Catie Aring

Caleb and I come from Ohio. So sure, we love Ohio - but love the PNW more. We are thankful that we now call Portland our home.

Perfect for a Girlfriend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Villa! Catie and Caleb were very accommodating (let us check-in early) and the house had EVERY thing we could need. All the staples are there shampoo, soap, oil, spices, etc. We loved all the labels and had no questions about how to maximize our time in the house. Pictures are what you get - it really is that beautiful.

Because the living/kitchen room and master are on the second floor, consider your guests who may have mobility issues. We had no problem and love the elevated feeling of the common space.

The roof top is amazing. We luckily had a picture perfect sunset for a February Friday and it was awesome. This place would be perfect for the summer.

Close to everything including a beautiful New Seasons.

Couldn't have found a better option for my girlfriend get away. It is so worth the price!!

Thanks for having us!

Beautiful House, Great Location, and Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Portland Villa was great. We are from PDX are and used the location to house a few out of town guests in town for a conference. The living space and dining area was also spacious enough for us to invite a few guests over for one of the conference sessions around dinner. Very clean, great kitchen amenities and close to great restaurants. As an added bonus it was next to my favorite donut shop so our out of town guests were got a nice treat!

Dinner Party

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a diner party hear for some local chefs. The venue was hit. Impressive décor and the space is very inviting and comfortable while still being very stylish. I created a 7 course tasting menu and found the kitchen up to the task! My only regret was that it rained so we could not take advantage of the rooftop area. Thanks Catie!!!!

I liked this property but I have some reservations about recommending it

  • 3 of 5

I liked our stay at this property. They were 9 of us, 4 couples and one single person. 4 bedrooms and only two bathrooms didn't work that well for us, when specially one of the bathrooms is located inside the main bedroom and upstairs, not available to others in the first floor. Where this house is located is really the nicest house in the neighborhood, all others are pretty old and the street where this house is located is pretty narrow. The neighborhood is close to a downtown and you can get anything you want basically by walking so that is very nice.

We were asked by the owner about the nature of our visit and where we came from and our professions, before them committing to rent. I put this out there just as a warning.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you liked your stay! However we wanted to address some of the reservations you brought up. NE Portland is a great neighborhood, we live here ourselves :) The street width is typical of any street in the city. Also the surrounding homes are lovely in our opinion and reflect the true culture, originality and diversity of our city. Our home is neither older or newer than those on our street, though it maybe taller ;) If newness is what you're after, you may want to try the Pearl condo district downtown upon return. There is indeed one bathroom on each of the 2 floors, which is also typical of a two story home. We do clearly advertise the reverse style floor plan on our listing. We agree adding a third bathroom would be ideal, if that were possible. Lastly we do absolutely ask all guests to tell us the nature of their stay and to give brief details of their group if they don't initially provide it. Most people send that information up front, but you hadn't so the request was made. We never ask (and did not in your case) for profession or deep details but bc we love our home, our neighbors and bc our rental permit prevents us from renting to party-style groups we always ask for more information to ensure it's a good fit. If that offended you, we are truely sorry. Thanks again for staying with us.

This house was beautiful, spacious, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for our Executive staff that was doing an offsite nearby. My only mistake was not trying to do the offsite here! Beautiful, spacious, with everything you could possibly need for a big or small group. Neighborhood was great. Great Portland vibe.
