About this listing
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).
What a perfect spot to land in Portland to truly discover the feel for the city. Phil was very communicative prior to my stay so I knew all that I needed to know before arriving. He left a detailed note about the 'fun' spots within walking distance of his home. It is a great little home nestled between 2 great neighborhoods. The home is charming, warm, welcoming and comfortable. It WAS hot in Portland but there were fans and an AC unit. The bed is comfortable, the living room is cozy and the house presents typical PNW charm. I LOVED it and can't wait go back. And I loved that Phil had many 'travel' 'area maps' to help plan excursions.
Phil's house was really nice, small wooden with two floors plays basement. It was clean, well equipped, nicely laid out with a feeling of relaxed spaciousness. The local area was good, housing quiet streets and really good bars cafes and restaurants, we ate there rather than in the downtown. We took the bus into town, I think about 20 minutes and also used the bus to explore up to the Rose Garden and around it was only $5 for an all day ticket. Phil responded quickly to all emails - I would recommend this property and visiting Portland.
We had s great stay here! The house is very cute and near lots of really good restaurants!
Phil's place in Portland is absolutely amazing and filled with charm.
I arrived to the house after camping my way up the coast of California and was tunnel visioned with the idea of a shower. After walking through the front door, I sat in the entryway bench for thirty minutes just looking at the the charm of the place. The backyard and dining room were just amazing. The kitchen was great and so was the bedroom.
The neighborhood was awesome, it was so close to Mississippi street and so many fun bars and restaurants. It is also not too far from downtown via bicycle.
My friends in the area came by a few times to have dinner and they couldnt stop raving about this place. I will be back for sure!
I spent three nights at Phil's place in July and had a great stay. The house is exactly as described - comfortable, roomy, and in a terrific location. I didn't meet Phil, but he was great in communicating through the whole process and I was able to get in and out without any difficulty. It had been hot in Portland before I arrived and Phil had left the fans on in the living room and bedroom to circulate the air - very considerate and appreciated. I would definitely enjoy staying at his place again in the future. Thanks, Phil!
We enjoyed our stay here very much. The house is charming and the location was perfect for exploring Portland. A quiet street with excellent food and shops within walking distance. Highly recommended!
