Portland Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condominium, 1 Bedroom + Study/Murphy bed, 2 full Baths (Sleeps 4 total)
There are 3 reasons why you'll want to stay in The Pearl. Location, location, location. Our luxury condo is located in the heart of The Pearl next to Jamison Park and directly on the street car line. The silent street car stops across the street and will efficiently take you wherever you’d like to go. You’ll find countless eateries within a few blocks in all directions as The Pearl is home to many of Portland’s best restaurants. There’s Italian, Japanese, Chinese, French and classic Pacific Northwest cuisine pretty much outside your door. We’ve got menus available for most in the condo along with reviews. Portland Monthly magazine’s “Best Picks” selected many of our favorites right here in our neighborhood. It's no accident that many of the descriptions in the other listings make mention that they are 'near' The Pearl. It is the hottest place to be in Portland.
If you’d rather go out for coffee than make some fresh in-house with our deluxe brewer, we’ve got Starbucks across the street, and Lovejoy Bakery out the rear door to the left. If it’s dessert you crave, within a block or two is home made ice cream at Cool Moon or if you’d prefer gelato, it’s down the street at Via Delizia. If your desires lean more to baked goods, there is Lovejoy Bakers just out the back door for coffee and baked goods, Cupcake Jones for Portland's best cupcakes, and Nuvrei's Cafe for amazing baked desserts as well as coffee, all within a few blocks.
No stay in Portland is complete without a visit to Powells, the largest book store in the U.S. Just a 6 minute walk or hop on the street car for 3 stops.
The Pearl has evolved to be a boutique and shopping paradise. There’s Patagonia and REI for the hardcore out door enthusiast along with boutiques, antique shops, galleries and specialty stores too numerous to mention.
The street car can take you directly to the Cultural district, about a 10 minute ride, where you’ll find the Portland Museum, concert halls, movie theaters and Portland State University. The new streetcar line can now also take you over the Broadway Bridge to the Lloyd Center for movies, including a brand new IMAX theater, or all the way to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.
If you haven’t heard about NW 23rd Street – you’ll want to check out that area as well. On a nice day, it's a delightful walk as it’s only 13 blocks away but you’ll want to return on the street car given all the packages you’ll be carrying. Before the Pearl evolved, it was THE shopping street in town. With an ambiance similar to Manhattan's Greenwich Village, this boutique enclave is scattered with unique shops, restaurants and cafes, with larger national stores moving in as well. You’ll find Willliam Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Renovation Hardware to name a few.
A trip to The City of Roses wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Rose Gardens, the oldest public rose garden in the U.S. And don't forget the Japanese Gardens, the Portland Zoo or the spectacular park system that Portland has to offer. There are over 5,000 acres with 30 miles of trails in Forest Park alone, promising a hike worthy of many fitness levels. If you're someone who prefers to view sporting events, we've got world class stadiums at our beautiful Rose Quarter, just on the other side of the Broadway Bridge.
If you have the time and would really like to know what it feels like to actually live in this beautiful Pacific Northwest city, we're offering stunning discounts from November 1 -March. Live like a local and see what life in this vibrant city would be like. Many of our guests over the years have fallen in love with Portland and decide to relocate after their initial visit. Others return for a month or two to give Portland a real trial as they explore the next chapter of their lives. You can too.

About Michelle Rabin
We are both clinical psychologists and entrepreneurs. We believe strongly in being of service to others and giving back to our communities and to the planet. We are part city and part country people. We live in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area where we enjoy living amongst the mesmerizing natural beauty that this area has to offer, but we also love the dynamism, food, culture and easy accessibility of city life. We are blessed to have regular access to both.
Michelle Rabin purchased this condo in 2008
Why Michelle Rabin chose Portland
We had been lifelong east coasters prior to moving to the Pacific Northwest 11 years ago. We had a pied-a-terre in Manhattan that we used regularly to take advantage of our love of the greatest city in the world. When we first moved here, we couldn't imagine not having regular access to our place in Manhattan. Then we discovered Portland, fell in love with it and moved our pied-a-terre from Manhattan to Portland. This Pacific Northwest city is delightfully walkable, clean, eco-friendly and home to the most friendly people we have ever experienced. This dynamic and vibrant city has some of the most remarkable local fresh cuisine of any city, many of which are Zagat rated and within walking distance of the condo. A short drive brings you to the famous Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area where you can enjoy recreating amongst the second largest river in the country, the spectacular Cascade mountains and breathtaking waterfalls. Now, we can't imagine having our pied-a-terre any place else.
What makes this condo unique
Staying in the heart of the vibrant Pearl district offers our guests the unique opportunity to have all of Portland at their command. Whether you want to wander a few blocks on foot to eat at a Zagat rated restaurant or want to hop on the street car to explore the nation's highest ranked farmers market located on the grounds of Portland State University, the condo provides an excellent location for your visit to Portland. With 3 stunning parks within a few blocks of the condo, you can plan your day to relax or take in everything that Portland has to offer. There's no need to even rent a car as this city has designed excellent public transportation networks. In fact, urban planners from around the world come to study the programs and policies that Portland has implemented to optimize quality of life for city dwellers.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Love this condo. I have to hand it to you, the condo has so many amenities, you have really outdone yourself. My wife and I have used VRBO about 50 times around the world, your unit is the most completely furnished of the bunch. We laugh and say things like, I wonder if there's a blender, then search for one and behold, of course there is. Thanks so much."
