IN ST JOHNS. 15 MINUTES TO DOWNTOWN. WALK TO PARKS. QUIET. BACK YARD GARDEN

Portland House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, Sleeps two couples and one single . Extra mattress

Furnished bungalow on quiet street just off Lombard St. Bus stop a block away. High speed cable Internet access and a flat screen tv and dvd player. The kitchen is modern and features an alcove for a table with a view out to the back garden and enormous apple tree. Access to the washer/ drier downstairs and to the 28 ' X 36' enclosed back garden shaded by a giant apple tree. The long side faces south and gets a lot of light. There is off street parking for 2-3 cars as well as ample on street parking. The garage and remainder of the basement is reserved by the owners

Character: The house is welcoming, easy, and many guests have said it is charming. We have this place because our grandchildren are a street over, so furniture is accomodating and children are very very welcome. The real draw is the enclosed backyard with a garden I will plant with veggies again next spring so the summer people can have tomatoes and peas. We come spring and fall so I'll plant potatoes for us to dig next year. Thanks to our daughter, we have a GOLD membership to the Backyard Habitat program of native plants. So there are ferns, oregon grape, evergreen huckleberry and more tucked in around the edges. There are a couple of little tables, and numbers of chairs. Our neighbors have sheds backed up to our line so there is surprising privacy. We love it here.

Animals: A number of people have brought their dogs or cats here. We always ask that they use Frontline or something similar and we have had no complaints from anyone. I would think we would hear about it if there were a problem.

Suitability:
  • children welcome

Guestbook comments from the owner
I don’t know where to leave feedback about the fantastic experience we had at North Jersey. The website doesn’t appear to have an area for feedback, though there is loads of it from previous renters. Please include mine:







We had an amazing stay at N Jersey! That house totally defines what “HomeAway” is about. We walked in and immediately felt at home. Everything was the perfect size, the beds were comfortable, the wifi password was clearly displayed, and everything we needed in the kitchen was available for use. They even had a laundry room with folding table. Jinette and Betsy were very accommodating when we had questions prior to our arrival, and very friendly with advice about what to do in the area.







And with regard to the area itself, I had no idea how adorable St. Johns was! It’s like a cute little town of its own, totally self contained. There is a Grocery Outlet, a Starbucks, an independent café called Anna Bananas, any number bars and pubs if that’s your thing. There is a great thrift shop just off the main drag, a record store, a Burgerville…anything you need really. And just up the road is a small scale Fred Meyer, with a larger version a few miles east. For the outdoor lovers, St. Johns is very close to hiking and walking trails, and is a great place to tool around on your bike.







I really recommend this rental. It’s very cozy and warm in winter, and with that sweet little backyard and homey porch, I’d bet it’s a great place to chill in summer.

WONDERFUL!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Bettsy's rental house. The house has everything you need for a short or long vacation in Portland and the fenced backyard is great if you have a dog, or two like us. Also, the house is in a good location, near downtown St. Johns, so it's close to plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. But apart from a nice house and a good location, we were greatly impressed with Bettsy's attention and help. We couldn't believe how comprehensive she was with our complicated requests! Great owner to rent from, we will do it again for sure!

NORTH PORTLAND RENTAL HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in St. Johns. The rooms were all good sized and each had a large closet. Over all our stay there was comfortable but there were a few cons... The shower did not drain properly, there is limited TV channels and the pans were hard to cook on because no matter what we did everything stuck to them. We liked the pretty back yard and enjoyed many evenings on the front porch. We would stay there again with our family of four.

GREAT SPOT FOR PORTLAND VISIT!

  • 5 of 5
Would highly recommend! We have a new Grandson living in St. Johns and this was a perfect option. Great location within walking distance of St. Johns. Nice to be in a house as opposed to hotel. Would definitely rent again!

Owner's Response: Tom,
Thanks so much. You are right, it is a nice walk from here to the center of town. Did you ever get to the library? the bike shop? We'd love to think you will be coming back. We'll try to get some pictures up on the walls.

THIS TRULY IS MY HOMEAWAY FROM HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
I can't possibly say enough good things about this home and the owners. My wife first found this home surfing the net and sent a email to Betsy asking if she would do a month to month rental. Not only did Betsy send a quick reply via email, she also called and spoke to my wife. Five minutes into the call my wife was in love with her. They became friends and after staying there I think of them as family. I travel to the Portland area for work often and I never know exact dates of arrival until a few days before I actually arrive. This really makes it hard to commit to a lease and I usually end up staring at the four walls of a hotel for weeks on end. Finding this home was such a blessing. Betsy . J.P. and Jennette are just the best. The home is always clean and comfortable with anything you might possibly need for your stay. The area is fantastic and close to everything. you can be in the beautiful mountains and water falls of Oregon or the scenic Oregon coast within a hour of home not to mention all the wonderful things to do in the city of Portland itself. If you have never been to Portland make sure you take the scenic drive called the Mt Hood loop. You should also see the rose garden and Japanese garden and the grotto. Don't forget shopping is tax free! That's a real treat for my wife. I have nothing but good thing to say about the home and the owners, my only regret in sharing how wonderful the home is will mean that I can't always get it when I am there working because others traveling to the area will keep it booked!!

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have asked for a nicer home and location. It is well maintained, and comfortable. We're moving to Portland soon, and this was a perfect base of operations for our scouting trip. We hope to stay there again on our final trip before the move.

PORTLAND ST. JOHN'S NEIGHBORHOOD

Portland St. John's neighborhood
  • 3 of 5
We found this St. John's house to be well stocked and well maintained. The owner is responsive and easy to work with. We found the house to be exactly as described online. It was more than big enough for two people, but might be crowded for more than four. We definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants to be staying in the St. John's neighborhood of Portland.
