About the property

A stone path leads to a private patio and entrance to the suite which has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with a large tiled shower. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed with direct access to the bathroom. Bedroom 2 is a large room with a queen futon/couch that also has a large screen TV, dining table, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, etc.

The location is 5 minutes from downtown, the Pearl district and popular east side neighborhoods. There's easy access from any direction and street parking is available.

My wife and I are native Oregonians and have lived in Portland for over 35 years. We love to be outdoors and have hiked many of the gorge and Mt. Hood trails so we're happy to make suggestions and recommendations on the many outdoor sites in the area. We're also knowledgeable about local breweries, wineries, restaurants and distilleries. There's lots to do here!

Residential gem close to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

Our family met in Portland for a family emergency during a freak snow storm. Our hosts lent snow gear to a family member, and

went out of their way to offer any help needed. They graciously left our reservation open ended, due to our circumstances. Our hosts were very friendly and caring, yet very respectful of our privacy.

One of the rooms has a functional and cute kitchenette with an egg cooker, toaster, microwave, fridge, table for 4 and everything you need to prepare a breakfast. Nicely appointed, comfortable beds with amenities such as an ironing board and separate entry. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative!

A truly wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience with a home away stay was great. The accommodations were warm and cozy. Our hosts were very welcoming seeing to every need. The breakfasts provided were so good. All in all we hope to be able to stay again the next time we come to Portland. This is one place not to be missed !

Couldn't have been better! Both Owners and property

  • 5 of 5

Recent stay began as a freak snowstorm of 12" fell on Portland!!. Not only were Denise and Scott so helpful, they met my unfolding needs perfectly. Their lovely property faces east (where Mt. Hood sits!), and overlooks a peaceful garden, that even the hummingbirds call home. Their well-appointed accommodations are crisp, clean and quiet. It's location couldn't be better, offering short, ez trips to Marylhusrt/LO, to the Pearl/Downtown, and to close-in restaurants and quaint foodie spots/shopping. Denise was incredibly helpful and kind during a stay that ultimately ran to 2-wks (as my father journeyed from hospital to funeral). Their flexibility accommodated my changing needs for both length of stay and number of people, that enabled additional family members to stay in the second bedroom during a difficult time. Though my home in NC is far away, I would try to build any future trips to Portland, around their availability to host me. (Scott and Denise, Thank You! for your understanding, kindnesses, considerations and helps)

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first vrbo experience - and boy was it a good one! I trusted the previous reviews, and this place was as good as promised. Scott and Denice have done a terrific job creating a very pleasant space for your home-away-from-home. My husband and I were snow-bound during a recent wicked Portland ice-storm. There was plenty of space for us to roam around and not feel like we were on top of each other. Scott and Denice have thoughtfully paid attention to the smallest of details which made all the difference. And - as other reviews have stated - the breakfasts and homemade treats are not to be missed. Rent this space - you'll be very happy that you did!

Scott and Denice are very welcoming hosts, and their home is cozy, clean, and comfortable - and all decked out for Christmas, which delighted my kids! We have stayed twice now and it's our favorite place to stay when we visit Portland. It's so much nicer than a hotel room - there's a bedroom, bathroom, and separate sitting room with fridge and microwave, and extra touches like games, coloring books, and an egg cooker. After Denice brought homemade muffins, yogurt, fruit, and juice on a tray for breakfast my kids asked if we could move in!

Very clean,warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

wonderful time. Clean, thoughtful attention to our comfort and very friendly hosts. Will definitely be back and certainly more comfortable than a hotel. Really appreciate the thoughtful touches like leaving a mug ready for cocoa out for our 4 yr old son. Easy to accomadate the three of us ,lovely and well cared for. One can tell the hosts genuinely care about your comfort. Definitely recommend as long as we aren't in Portland at the same time because we would want to get it first!!
