This is a great, cozy spot to live while you're in Portland; a comfortable home with all of Portland's charms easily accessible.
The house itself is a comfortable, restored 1910s bungalow: A very cozy bedroom, a well-stocked kitchen, a great dining room, and side as well as front porches. I bought the house five years ago, and have done an extensive remodel, adding French doors to the side porch, designed a very-usable and very-adorable kitchen (with up-to-date appliances), and updated the bathroom.
Dogs are absolutely welcome. Street parking is easy. A great landing spot while you are in town.
Sandwiched between two remarkable restaurant rows (N. Williams and N. Mississippi) the house is a couple minute walk from world-class restaurants, great breweries, a fantastic music venue and, really, just a top-notch sampling of Portland's best. The whole neighborhood has transformed over the past several years: Tasty & Son has been lauded for its brunches (although lines can be long at times), and the chefs at Lincoln (another restaurant just 2 minute walk away) recently won a James Beard award. My favorite new addition is Social Box, a swanky super-friendly bars (with my favorite new whiskey drinks).
There is a park a block away, and I-405 is convenient (a two minute drive), which pops you over to the city's west side really quickly; which makes both Forest Park, Burnside (i.e., Powells) and the Pearl District all accessible (five minute drive in normal traffic).
It was a great location, a safe quiet area but convenient to downtown and to heading to the Pendleton factory! Thanks!
The location was even better than we anticipated. It was easy to find as were all of the great places to eat and drink within just a few blocks. The bed was super cozy and the kitchen had everything. Phil responds quickly to every email and text.
Fantastsic neighborhood, in walking distance to so many great shops and restaurants. The house was very relaxing. Very quiet, solid farmhouse feel, with a sweet bedroom window upstairs. Phil was very helpful and responsive. And our dogs loved walking in the area.
Loved staying here! Was very comfortable and cozy, plus close to great restaurants and bars. I would definitely recommend staying here.
The house was great, felt like an authentic Portland experience. Everything was stocked and ready, including a lot of maps and guide books for the area. The bathroom situation was a little unusual. There is no shower curtain, so you are full exposed and getting water everywhere no matter how careful you are. The location was ideal - very easy to find and great access to several great neighborhoods. We would definitely stay here again if the shower was fixed.
Although Phil wasn't there to welcome me personally, we had great email communication and the self check in was effortless. He was quickly available by text/phone when I had some problems with the internet.
Great neighborhood, super convenient with a great grocery store just a few streets away. I was staying for an extended period so groceries and the ability to make meals was important. Well stocked kitchen but note there is no microwave for quick warm up. Super comfortable bed and I really appreciated having a whole house to retreat to after a full day of study. Would definitely stay again.
Good stay in Portland! Convenient to some great restaurants and bars... Bus stops are convenient, yellow max line is a 10 min walk. Lots of street parking.
House has lots of character and charm with creaky steps and finicky doors. Back patio and small yard for dogs was nice though wood steps get slippery with moisture. Our older dog learned to be quite careful after the first tumble.
Never met Phil in person, but was quick to respond when messaged. We were left in a well stocked/prepared house. Convenient in/out with key lockbox on porch.
Overall, a solid 8 out of 10. Not the best we've stayed at through AirBnB, but would certainly stay at again!
