The Space

This amazing duplex is located in the heart of Portland's most unique neighborhoods. Alberta Arts District always has something unbelievable to look at (people riding bikes while juggling), amazing restaurants to eat at (home to Portland's culinary creativity), fun pubs to have a drink (locally brewed beers won't disappoint), and loads of independent stores to purchase gifts (adorable dresses, funky jewelry, await you). The best part is the house is in the heart of the area. It's the location you hope to get when book a vacation rental. Walking distance to all on Alberta, 15 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes to the heart of the city. There bus stop is a block away making public transportation a breeze. If you have a car there is a parking spot that comes with the house and there is also free off street parking all around.

One major perk about renting this house is the coupons our lovely neighbors have shared for our guests. Frock Boutique, Tin Shed, The Wax Skin Spa, I Am Yoga (bikram yoga studio) Garnish NW Store, Digs Inside and Out, Mimosa Studios, Bin 21, Cork Bottle Shop, Crafty Wonderland....You get discounts to all these wonderful places!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house is beautiful and in a wonderful neighborhood! Couldn't have been a better experience - highly recommend!

    April 2014
  • This is a great house in a great location. Very modern and there was good privacy for the four bedrooms. There was good information about the neighborhood and it's an easy walk to lots of eating options, etc. I'd definitely recommend.

    March 2014
  • This unit is in a great location in a fun city. There was a big group of us staying and everyone enjoyed themselves. It was easy to get to, check in and check out. Everything we needed was there.

    November 2013
  • Absolutely loved our stay at High Gear! Very well appointed and a great location. We'll definitely stay here again. Thanks, Michelle!

    October 2013
  • We heartily recommend this home for anyone wanting to truly experience Portland, especially the Alberta arts neighborhood. The home is clean, spacious and comfy and it easily accommodated our party of 9 in town for our daughters wedding. The home is also easily accessible to all other parts of the Portland area. And, thanks so very much to our gracious host, Michelle. Jan.

    October 2013
  • We were looking for a house where we could stay during our son's wedding so we could host out of town friends along with ourselves. The house itself is nicely remodeled and served the purpose well. It was a lot of fun bringing our friends together under one roof, and one afternoon to host a brunch for our son, daughter-in-law, and their friends.

    Also, the neighborhood (email hidden)ly commercial area, with all sorts of restaurants and other attractions within easy walking distance.

    Drawbacks: the house is on a very busy street, with traffic and club noise well into the night.

    Also, immediately abutting the house is an old commercial building now being remodeled. Each morning we awoke to the sound of jackhammers and nail guns.

    August 2013
  • Colourful, chic, artsily decorated house (email hidden)ly neighbourhood street with restaurants, bars, interesting shops and an excellent ice cream parlour, some with large discounts for people who rent this house! Good bus connections and one that goes straight into town. Lovely little porch. And we enjoyed playing with the hackey sacks in the yard outside!

    July 2013
  • The home is clean, very attractive, spacious, and has all amenities. My family stayed for a wedding week and enjoyed the neighborhood and nearby dining. A welcoming bottle of wine was very kind and all arrangements and information were easy to obtain. Not noted in the airbnb photos is a lovely small playground in the yard which my granddaughter loved. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Portland.

    June 2013
  • The place was awesome! Such a fun location in Portland and easy to park and walk to restaurants and bars.

    May 2013
  • My friends and I loved our stay at Michelle's beautiful rental home. It was very comfortable and spacious and in a fantastic neighborhood. Michelle was very accommodating and always had a quick reply to any question. I would definitely rent this house or any other spot from Michelle again and hope to do so in the future.
