A cozy space in a great location with easy access to everything wonderful in PDX.
This space is just steps from everything that makes NW Portland so fantastic. Also located along the streetcar line, you'll have no problem further exploring Portland.
Hungry? Feed your belly at any of the delicious spots in the Pearl District or Nob Hill.
Thirsty? Cafes, breweries and wine bars abound.
Got a hankering for culture? Art galleries and theaters populate the area.
Like to shop? The plethora of boutiques should satiate your fashion desires.
Feeling like a hike? Forest Park - the largest park within city limits in the US - is just a short walk away.
No doubt this is a fabulous location to spend your time in PDX.
An elevator takes you up to the top floor of the building. Stepping into the apartment drenches you in light from large bay windows in both the living room and bedroom. Facing south, you have natural light all day long (even on the grayest of days that we are so well known for).
There is a full size, spa quality bed in the bedroom. I don't have cable TV, but I DO have a mini DisplayPort cord, and an iPhone cord (not compatible with iPhone 5) so you can stream Netflix or similar. Please note you need to bring your own devices to use the TV. I just provide the connection :) I also do NOT own a microwave, but the gas stove works great!
There are ceiling fans if you feel the need to get the air moving.
I have lived in this neighborhood for 3 years. If you would like recommendations for anything to see, eat, drink, or do, then check out my neighborhood guide!
I am a photographer with a business to call my own.
Bike storage, wifi, local transportation, and much much more!
Interaction with Guests
Just enough communication to make sure you have a great stay!
You can walk everywhere! Situated right between the Pearl District and Nob Hill, you are indeed staying in the heart of Portland. And don't forget Forest Park is right at your fingertips! No need to leave town to escape to the woods for a hike.
The streetcar is 2 blocks way. The Max is 10 blocks. Buses are all over!
Be courteous in respect to space and property. This is an apartment building so there are people around you. You're on the top floor so there is no one above you and sometimes it's easy to forget there are people below. Common sense should rule. Don't be practicing your jumping jack form at 3 am ;-)
No pets. Please leave Fido and Fluffy at home.
This is a green friendly home.
Absolutely no late checkouts unless confirmed in advance.
Really a perfect location and great response times from Amy on some questions. Great neighbourhood and excellent communication!
Amy's manual had all the details we needed to make our arrival and stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. The location is truly fabulous. We ended walking everywhere. Portland is a great city and staying in Amy's place made us feel at home there!
Amy's apartment was everything we expected and more. Very cozy and welcoming, and the location was great. We were able to walk to restaurants and bars close by and felt we got a good taste for the city. The apartment was comfortable and clean, with all the odds and ends we needed (towels, extra blankets, a French press for coffee, and more), it felt like a home away from home. The neighbors were quiet and we didn't see many of them, and even with the windows open noise from the street is minimal. We slept very well.
The only trouble we had was with finding parking, which can be tricky with all the one to two hour time limit areas (though the limits don't apply after 7 usually). However, we always managed to get a spot within a few blocks after circling a bit.
The apartment itself was just as advertised. We would do it again just the same. A bit thanks to Amy for being such a welcoming host!
location location location! Amy's place was great! 21st and 23rd are the main streets nearby with lots of cafes, coffee shops, etc. We arrived to Amy's place by transit from the airport. Super easy. You def do not need a car if you are staying here - and we were traveling with our 2 year old. We also went to the zoo by transit, which was so easily accessible.
Amy responded to our questions and email correspondence within 24 hours. Her place looks exactly like it does in the photos. It's a quiet neighborhood which was also nice.
Amy's apartment was lovely. It had a lot of space and was really comfortable. Also, it's in a great area. It's only about a 10 minute walk from the NW district and Knob Hill. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the Pearl District and 20 minutes to get to Powell's and Whole Foods. I loved staying there and I definitely recommend it!
Amy's place was bright, quiet and comfortable with easy walking access to the Pearl, and restaurants on 23rd. The streetcar is right across the street, so it was easy to jump on when I was in a hurry or wanted to get out of the drizzle.
I got in very late, and had no problems getting in, finding keys, wifi and music hookups. I loved that the bathroom was equipped with lots of extra soaps (likely collected from others' visits) and clean, cozy towels.
We enjoyed our stay!
We had a great time staying at Amy's cute apartment! It's located very conveniently to many restaurants and shops, and the apartment itself is very cozy :)

I prefer solo travel and adore SE Asia. I loved reading Shantaram. The Princess Bride is the best movie ever. I like to get down to a booty shakin' groove. Wine and cheese and fruit, please.
Nice to meet you.
