Overview

Vancouver Apartment Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautiful 1908 Craftsman home (Garden view unit) in the heart of one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Portland! You will never stay in a nicer garden view unit! This is urban living at it's finest. Beautiful high historic end homes, gorgeous tree lined boulevards, wonderful people, and extremely close to many wonderful restaurants and shopping. This is one of the best neighborhoods in Portland without a doubt. The wonderful and energetic neighborhoods of Alameda, Beaumont-Wilshire, Concordia, Laurelhurst and Grant Park all surround Historic Irvington, but she is the Grand Dame of them all!

A car is not absolutely necessary, walk to the MAX (transportation system - 10 minutes) and the bus line is around the corner. You are a 5-10 minute walk from literally 20 restaurants! 5 minutes walking to Lloyd Center and 8 minute walk to the Rose Quarter. Downtown is a 7 minute drive or 9 minutes on the MAX.

Your basement unit is almost 600 square feet and has been completely restored with the original hardware. The sofa folds down to sleep a total of 4. Why stay in a hotel when you can live like a local?

The vast majority of the vacation rentals in Portland operate illegally, but this house has the rare and therefore coveted 'Conditional Use' permit that the city requires in order to run a vacation rental for short term stays.

Our caretakers live onsite, tucked away in an apartment on the main level. Feel free to ask them for help at anytime.

This apartment is extremely well furnished, with everything you need to make your stay wonderful, giving you maximum comfort. Large windows ensure the unit is well lit, and a brand new hydroponic heating system ensures warmth on cold nights. Stainless steel appliances, travertine countertops, wireless internet, a 30' flat screen TV, DVD player and a Bose Stereo give you the luxuries that you have in your own home! Your own illuminated, private entrance on the side of the house guarantees you complete privacy.

A raised herb and vegetable garden on the south side of the house is available to you.

You will get our personal recommendations for shopping, dining and activities and complimentary coffee and tea.

This is our part time home, and we absolutely love it. We guarantee you will feel the same. Come and be part of our family as you sample all that Irvington Neighborhood and Portland have to offer!

About The Owner

My name is Mark Reinoso, and my wife's name is Abigail Stewart. I have a daughter, Lauren, from my first marriage, who is 15. Abby and I have a 6 year old son, Rocco and a 2.5 year old daughter Zara

We spend a lot of time in Portland, and we certainly want to welcome you to our home!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Owner chose Vancouver

I have always loved the Pacific Northwest, though my daughter, family and my business are in Phoenix. Most of my maternal family is from this area, and many relatives still live near here.

My mother was born in Vancouver, WA and used to come down to the Lloyd Center to shop with her mother when she was very young. She has fond memories of this place. When she first saw this house and this neighborhood, she literally cried.

I have always had a great time here. I love the neighborhood. I love my neighbors and the general vibe that Portland has. I love the people, and even the weather(most of the time) I love the fact that you can go hiking or biking in the AM, and be back in time for lunch at a fabulous restaurant. I love that nothing looks the same, that everything is unique.

What makes this apartment unique

I guess I could go on and on, but I really like the urban lifestyle. You can walk anywhere from the Irvington Neighborhood. The gardens and yards are just unbelievable. There are tons of great restaurants and coffee shops everywhere you turn. Portland is such a great destination in every way, and I think Irvington neighborhood is the crown jewel of it all.

I have put tons of money and my heart and soul into this property, and I think and hope it shows. I hope you enjoy this house as much as I do.

We absolutely loved this rental!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I recently stayed in this rental for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. The house is in a great neighborhood, and within easy walking distance of the MAX, restaurants, stores, etc. It was nice and quiet - we never really heard our upstairs caretakers or the road. The apartment was very clean and came will a lot of small details we appreciated, such as the soaps, hairdryer, lots of books on the area, information on the public transit, and even a bottle of wine! The bed was comfortable, and it was easy to park our rental car on the street adjacent to the house, although we really didn't need the car a lot of the time. The caretaker and owner were super nice to communicate with over email, and everything went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend this to others and hopefully we can stay here again! Thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful rental!

Comfortable apartment-- cold floors!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for one night in the garden apartment. The location was fantastic and the place was very cute (and clean)! The owner and caretakers were very nice and we had nothing but positive interactions with them (all via email). I have only 2 small complaints that caused me to remove one star:

#1) The ceilings are really low in a couple spots. Not a huge deal for me but my husband is 6'6" so was very awkward for him.

#2) The floor is painted cement, which is really cold and very hard, especially being on the ground level! Would have loved for them to have a few extra (and thicker rugs). There was no rug in the bedroom (cold feet in the morning) and the one in the living room area was very small and thin.

As I said, very minor things. Overall, we had a great stay and were happy the place was so centrally located! Would totally stay there again, but perhaps in their upper level apartment :).

We recently stayed in the Garden Apartment at Irvington House

The neighborhood is terrific, lots of stores, restaurants, and public transportation near by.

The apartment was clean, spacious, and had a great kitchen with lots of dishes, and pots and pans

We came to visit our daughter, who lives around the corner, so walking back and forth was easy and convenient.

We enjoyed our stay, the house was quiet with a peaceful setting. Maybe our next visit will be during warmer weather and we can enjoy the backyard and grill.

thank you for a very comfortable stay

A week in portland!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 including infant and we stayed in the basement apartment for a week. The place was beautiful! The accommodations were awesome! Caretaker was super nice! Apartment was in a good location and short distance to many attractions. Very private and quiet. Laundry room right outside the door to apartment downstairs which was very convenient. The place had everything we could possibly need even a pack 'n' play and high chair! Just one disappointment...low water pressure in the shower. Other than that, can't complain :)
