Just three minutes away is a large neighborhood shopping center, with a very nice QBS grocery store, mailing service, liquor store and four restaurants. And, of course, the delights of NW 23rd/21st, the Pearl District, and downtown Portland are less than 10 minutes away. We are just a couple of minutes away from Portland's wild Forest Park with miles of hiking/biking trails as well as Washington Park with the Portland Zoo, the Japanese and Rose Gardens, and the Hoyt Arboreatum.
We have lived in Portland for 25 years, but now that our daughter is on her own adventure, we have more time to travel and enjoy our vacation home in Mexico. So, we rent out our townhouse when we are traveling.
Michelle Fitzpatrick purchased this townhome in 2011
Our townhouse is very nicely designed and feels much more spacious than it's actual square footage. And, if the sun is shining, it is filled with light. It also has a very nice front deck for a sunset drink and a lovely, shady patio.
Our townhouse is in a wonderful section of Portland, the award-winning Forest Heights area. It is very close to downtown Portland, the Pearl District and the Nobhill area as well as any location on the west side of Portland. Miles of bike trails are just outside our door, plus we are very close to Forest Park, the largest natural city park in the U.S., the Hoyt Arboreatum, the zoo and the Japanese and Rose Gardens.
This beautiful townhome exceeded our expectations. The owners went above and beyond to make sure we had a home away from home. The property was spit, spot clean and the gourmet kitchen was a joy to prepare meals in. There were so many extras, like the children's books, the Bose CD player, and the beautiful appointed furnishings, comfortable beds, and luxury linens. The fireplace added a special touch for those cool June mornings and evenings. The location was absolutely perfect and I would highly recommend this for friends and family visiting the Portland area. The little park, within walking distance, was a perfect place to take the grandchildren on a walk...Speaking of walks, there are so many trails within Forest Hills...a perfect place for all. Mahalo
My husband and I spent the month of July at this property. It far exceeded our expectations for comfort and prime location. The owner, Michelle, was a pleasure to work with. We needed her help only once, and she responded immediately. The townhouse reflects the owners’ care for their renters and their excellent taste in design and furnishings. The home was well-stocked with kitchen, bathroom, and entertainment items. The beds were very comfortable, and there was more than enough storage in the closets and dressers. July was one of the warmest on record, so we were especially grateful for the central air conditioning. Just like the listing says, the property is in a quiet, immaculate neighborhood with walking trails, a shopping area, and a bus stop just 3 minutes away. The bustling Pearl District and the city center are 10 minutes away. Our goal was to experience Portland, the ocean, Mt. Hood, and the countryside. This townhouse was the ideal launching pad for our adventures. We highly recommend it.
Renting a home for our family vacation to Portland was all new for us and we had a wonderful time. The townhouse was everything the pictures show and we all enjoyed immensely having it as our home base. We were delighted with the beautiful neighborhood and the townhouse itself was bright, clean, cheery and nicely furnished. We were total newbies at this but Michelle was great to work with and we all agreed we that we couldn't have picked a better place for our fist experience renting a vacation home.
There was a moment of panic when we arrived in our full sized pickup and saw the size of the garage... but it fit! We had to fold the mirrors in and I stationed a spotter at on each side but by the end of the week we were old pros at docking our big boat. Any car or mid-sized SUV would fit just fine, but -just an FYI- any truck bigger than a Nissan Titan would probably not fit... and there's no parking outside.
We would definitely recommend this as an outstanding place to stay in Portland.
We stayed from Jan - mid-March 2013
Overall: We loved it! It was the perfect size and location for us.
Kitchen was well furnished with everything we needed. And several things we didn't expect: Like a wok-style frying pan for stir-fry or fajitas. And the new Bar-B-Que! Wonderful!
The only challenge for us was the stairs. We are Seniors and felt we were getting a workout.
Decor and furnishings are tasteful, with an individual flair. We felt we were invited guests more than renters. Everything was well cared for.
Location is perfect. Close to the city -- just over the hill to everything we could want. And close and convenient to Beaverton, where we have family. There is a free commuter bus to the MAX train system that is very easy to use.
Locale: We enjoyed many walks to the park and Mill Pond, with it's beautiful fountain. Such a lovely setting. And we had many more days of sunshine than we expected.
We recommend this property highly.
We stayed at this beautiful townhome for 6 weeks during the summer of 2012. Our two boys are ages five and nine. The home is lovely, the decorations are tasteful and it is a beautiful neighborhood with lots of parks nearby for the kids. We really enjoyed our stay very much. The pictures are a perfect description and Michelle and her husband were helpful both before and during our stay.
Our kids did quite well, however I was nervous about the plates, glasses and glass tables as well as some of the decor within their reach. We discussed how things are fragile and they seemed to get it, with reminders. We bought some plastic wear for the kids. I mentioned it to MIchelle and they immediatley supplied us with a bunch of IKEA kids wear, which was wonderful. The glass tables are quite prone to smudges and fingerprints from the little guys, but glass cleaner takes care of this issue.
The other issue with the kids is that their bedroom was on a different floor from my husband and me. The Master bedroom is on the top floor and the bedroom with the sliding door is on the main floor. The boys were not too happy about it. They ended up sleeping in the loft a lot of the time because they didn't like to be so far away from us. I think this could be an issue for the younger set.
So, overall, I would say this is a great place. However, it is probably the best fit for families with older children.
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful, one-month stay in this Portland townhome conveniently located in the quiet, upscale Forest Heights neighborhood. Downtown Portland, with its many shopping, dining, and cultural facilities, was just a ten-minute drive away and recreational opportunites were likewise quickly accessible. The rental was very comfortable, nicely decorated, and well-maintained. The listing description and photographs accurately described the unit and amenities. The owner was very helpful and responsive to our inquiries. After every day out and about, we really felt like we were "coming home" when we returned to the condo.
It is our first time renting with HomeAway and we had a very good experience.
The property is what you can see and read on the site; its new, well equipped and in a great location. It is on the NW hills and just 15 minutes away from downtown Portland.
The owner communicated with us several times before our arrival and made sure we had all the information we needed.
We will come to Portland once a year, and our plan is to rent this property again.
Portland has great shopping, entertainment and eating. We are on the hill above downtown Portland, less than 10 minutes from the Nob Hill/Northwest 23rd area, the Pearl District and the downtown shopping and restaurant district.
We are a short two blocks from Forest Height's 'Town Center,' with a Starbucks, the gourmet pizza mecca, Pizzacato, and a very nice cafe. The town center also features a dry cleaners and a nail salon.
There is a free bus from the town center that goes to a nearby transit center, from where you can take the MAX light rail or buses in any direction.
The townhouse is ideally located on the edge of the urban part of Portland's west side and additional recreational activities including hiking, running and biking both within Forest Heights and Portland's justly-famous Forest Park, which is less than five minutes away. Portland Audubon is less than four minutes away. If you wish to explore further, Oregon's wine country starts within a 20-minute drive; Oregon's spectacular coast is just over an hour away; the Columbia River Gorge starts within a 25-minute drive; Mt. Hood is just 45 minutes.
