IDEALLY LOCATED, ECO, MODERN & ARTISTIC 4 BEDROOM PERFECT FOR LARGE GROUPS

Portland House Rental Photos and Description

Entire House, 4 Bed, 2 Bath (Sleeps 10) In the heart of Alberta, outdoor space

This amazing duplex is located in the heart of Portland's most unique neighborhoods. Alberta Arts District always has something unbelievable to look at (people riding bikes while juggling), amazing restaurants to eat at (home to Portland's culinary creativity), fun pubs to have a drink (locally brewed beers won't disappoint), and loads of independent stores to purchase gifts at (adorable dresses, funky jewelry, await you). The best part is the house is in the heart of the area. It's the location you hope to get when book a vacation rental. Walking distance to all on Alberta Street. 15 minutes by car from the airport, 10 minutes by car to the heart of the city. The bus stop is a block away and there is also off street parking at the house.

High Gear (the upper level of the duplex) has 4 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. An open living, dining, and kitchen area. The first floor houses 3 of the bedrooms. 2 with queen beds and the third with a bunk bed (double lower and twin above). The first floor has a full bath with walk in shower. The second floor houses a fourth bedroom, loft area, and full bathroom.

The kitchen is fully stocked from coffee grinder to microwave oven to blender. You will be able to cook up a feast and eat in comfort at the wood dining table adorned with beautiful dishes.

One major perk about renting this house is the coupons our lovely neighbors have shared for our guests. Frock Boutique, Tin Shed, Garnish, Digs Inside and Out, Mimosa Studios, Bin 21, Cork Bottle Shop, Crafty Wonderland....You get discounts to all these wonderful places! So eat, drink and shop- all a stroll away and all at a discounted price!

The side yard boasts the coolest kids hive play structure, teeter tooter, picnic table and yard games. In the nice weather its a perfect spot to enjoy a meal or let the kids run free!

The house had been newly gutted and remodeled using sustainable and local materials, and has inspiring touches throughout the house. It promises to be one of the best vacation rentals in all of Portland.

For larger groups, this house can be rented along with vrbo/443441 (low gear the 3 bedroom/1.5 bathroom). This configuration would sleep 15 people in beds.

About Jen Yamin

During our travels we have stayed at many places and began taking note of what we did/or didn't like with our lodgings. Our goal in creating Shift Vacation Rentals is to put together our ideal rental in our ideal city. We hope you find the artistic, funkiness, ecologically mindedness of Portland in our rental. We partnered with many local businesses and artists in creating the home to give it a look and feel that you won't find elsewhere. A walk down Alberta Street is an experience you will adore.

Jen Yamin purchased this house in 2012

Why Jen Yamin chose Portland

The location couldn't be any better. It sits in the heart of Alberta Arts District and this Portland neighborhood encompasses all the amazing features that makes Portland- Portland. Reclaimed materials bring a history and story to the house that make it really special. There is thoughtfulness with all of the details from the paint colors to the lighting all of the items were specifically chosen to make the house beautiful and different.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just spent a weekend in Portland and found this lovely rental house to stay at. Located in the Alberta arts district it was close to a lot of nice shops and great eats. Only a short bike from downtown, it was also easy to get to other parts of Portland.



My friends and I (9 total) fit nicely in the high gear which is the upper level of the house. The house was absolutely beautiful, modern and Eco-friendly. The owner left us maps, coupons, and suggestions to nearby places which really helped our trip planning. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return again.

Post STP stay

  • 5 of 5
Ended our family vacation (ages 6 months to 62) at Shift-High Gear. Two of us had just finished the Seattle to Portland and we all wanted to stay put for a couple of nights. Very fun home....great design...great location! With this as home base we visited with friends who live in Portland, ate at wonderful restaurants, visited the zoo (easy drive) and played in the wonderful yard at High Gear! We do hope to rent again.

Forget about the hotel.

  • 4 of 5
The house was great and the beds were very comfortable. The upstairs sink and downstairs toilet didn't seem to drain well, but it never caused us any real problems. The house is in a good location to have access to other fun things to do. The decor and design in the house was very warm an inviting.

Owner's Response: Hi Mike,

Thank you for such a great review. I hope your school meeting went well. We love accommodating groups for off-sites, as we think it's a great alternative to a hotel.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the sink and toilet. Thank you for letting us know. We have a plumber over there today to fix any problems.

Best regards,
Jen

Great for Groups

I rented both High Gear and Low Gear last weekend. Due to the winter storm, we ended spending a lot more time at the house than originally planned and it was so nice to have a clean, modern and comfortable home away from home. There was plenty of common space to hang out in during the blizzard. There are many restaurants, coffee shops, and cute shops within a few blocks.

HAPPY HOME

  • 5 of 5
Shift High Gear is terrific and awesome and "the bomb"! The pictures are accurate so trust them. If you like what you see, that is what you get. (Well, the cow has shades now but let's not quibble!) We have rented a bazillion vacation homes on the East coast and this one is as good as they get. And, even better, Jen is an absolute jewel to work with. She is certainly renter focused being timely in her responses and kind in her service. If you are going to Portland you will be happy with your staying here.

Armstrong family

  • 4 of 5
We had 4 adults and 2 children stay and enjoy Christmas week. The entry was good for shoes and coats. This living area had plenty of seating and our grandson liked the coffee table for his train and tracks! The dinning table was wonderful - large enough for an extended family dinner. The kitchen is a little small and missing some things - spatula, ice cream scoop, more regular glasses, potato masher, mixer, and more large serving bowls. The bedrooms and beds were comfortable. Bathrooms roomy and well supplied. We missed having a tub for bathing our two year old grandson.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We are going to buy a few of the things you mentioned that would have made your stay more comfortable. As for the mixer, hopefully you found both the Cuisinart and blender. For future stays, there is a portable tub in the closet that can be used for bathing little ones.

Thank you for your feedback!

The location:

Is simply perfect. The house sits in the heart of Alberta Street, Portland's most vibrant funky neighborhood. You can walk to a multitude of restaurants, bars, and stores. Inner NE Portland is centrally located so visiting other neighborhoods or going downtown is a few minutes drive. The house is 15 minutes from the airport. There is one parking spot off street and plenty of free parking on the street. The bus stop is 2 blocks from the house making public transport a breeze.
