Large master bedroom with queen bed and en suite bathroom with a French provincial decor. The entire apartment is nicely appointed and in quiet area of Portland.
Nice view out of the bedroom window that feels like you are in the mountains while in the middle of the city.
Feel comfortable relaxing in the living room or on the balcony and to use the kitchen or dining room for a nice meal.
Wifi throughout apt.
Seasonal pool and year round hot tub in complex.
There are walking paths around the neighborhood, some areas of the paths are in wooded area with stream.
New Seasons is the closest grocery store, is local and specializes in bringing fresh, organic foods from local farmers and food distributors. There is a broad range of restaurants both to the north and south of the apartment. I am happy to give recommendations for restaurants, bars/pubs, etc, activities, local events...
There are two different bus stops right out side the apt however the time it takes to go into downtown doesn't make it practical to use, thus a car is recommended. Downtown is a 10 minute drive north. The airport is a 25 minute drive. There is parking available at the complex.
Friends and colleagues have joked that I should work for the Portland Chamber of Commerce because I love sharing about the city and surrounding area so much.
Even after living abroad in 3 fantastic European cities for 8 years and extensive travel while living aboard, Portland is still one of my top 3 favorite cities in the world.
As a guest and a host I prefer no smoking, keeping things tidy, friendly conversation (preferably while sipping wine ;-) that lead to learning new things, and humor.
