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.

For fun - we hike A LOT, spending good time in the forests with our dog around Mt Hood, in the Gorge, or on the coast. I enjoy practicing yoga and am a certified yoga teacher. Caleb plays and loves ice hockey.

We aim to be super considerate and delightful guests when we rent and to provide a clean, rad home when we host.

Get out here and visit this amazing city and region!

Why Catie Aring chose Northeast Portland

Because it's amazing!! It really is a beautiful and special home. We enjoy using and improving it. Also we live very close by making it easy to take care of and interact or assist with our guests.

Our group of eight (parents and adult children couples) enjoyed the proximity to all that Alberta Street has to offer. We were in town for basketball tournament at MODA and Veteran's, and it was very easy to get over to the MAX station to get downtown without parking fees. Portland Villa was spacious, spotless, airy and has many large upper and clerestory windows to let lots of natural light in (despite characteristic fall rains). Off street parking for one vehicle, provision of three oversize umbrellas, all the kitchen accessories you would need (though why eat in when you are in Portland?) were a plus. I made a glitch in my reservation, and Catie was very accommodating in working it out. It was easy to get downtown but nice to be outside the downtown bubble. This also made airport access quick and easy, as almost everyone had to be ferried to and from airport at a different time.

All instructions for check-in, check-out, appliance use, TV, Wifi were clear and effective.

Take a Chance on this One!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! This house located in the Albert Arts District seemed a bit off the beaten path, which we loved! It felt like we were living in Portland and not just vacationing there. It was very clean and easy to access. The rooftop deck was fun for all 7 of us to enjoy our glasses of wine, as was the large living room area inside. Catie and Caleb were easy to communicate with and answered all my questions. The only drawback to the place was having only 2 bathrooms, but we knew this when we rented the place.

Portland Perfection

  • 5 of 5

The house was, in a word, amazing. Everyone in my group of 4 adults (and 3 kids) commented that they couldn't believe the pictures of the house on this website were actually accurate. The house is 3 stories, with three bedrooms and one full bathroom on the first floor, and then the "master" bedroom with attached bath on the second floor along with the kitchen and living area. The third floor is a gigantic rooftop deck with picnic tables that can seat probably 12 adults and sectional outdoor couches. Our friends who lived in Portland visited our house and were blown away. Only thing to consider as a possible negative is, with small kids (as we have a 2 year old), the inside stairs are pretty dangerous and so the kids need constant supervision on them.

Great house in the heart of the Albert's arts district.

  • 5 of 5

7 of us enjoyed this very nice home. We really appreciated the little extras i.e., coffee beans, umbrellas, extra pillows & blankets & fully stocked kitchen. It's in a fun walkable neighborhood chock full of eateries and shops. Great location for our day trips to Astoria, Cannon Beach, Tillamook, Mt. Saint Helens, Oregon Zoo, rose & Japanese gardens, river boat ride, Saturday market and downtown Portland.

Wow! Can't wait to stay again

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Villa. The house was very well equipped (right down to delicious coffee and grinder) and the beds, couches, and outdoor furnishings were very comfortable. The rooftop deck was awesome and, while we brought our own because I didn't read the full list of amenities, the availability of pack-n-plays and highchairs was very thoughtful. Our only complaint is that we were only able to stay one night. We will definitely be back for a longer stay soon!

Spacious and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Portland villa for 4 nights with family while traveling for a wedding. The house is beautiful, spacious, and in an excellent location. Outstanding shops and restaurants on Alberta Ave. just steps away. The owners were very responsive and easy to communicate with. We definitely recommend staying here.
