Overview

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 also has a full bath with walk in shower. The second floor houses a fourth bedroom, loft area with skylights, and a gorgeous 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, MashTun Brewery, I Am Yoga Bikram Studio, The Cheese Plate, The Wax Skin Spa, Crafty Wonderland & more....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.

What makes this house unique

I think our rental has many unique areas- from a large side yard filled with interesting kids structures to corn hole which is a game that friends can play and enjoy for hours. Inside the house has bike themed interiors from hanging tricycle lights to handle bar coat racks. We wanted the house to be comfortable for guests, so details such as reading lights above the beds were put in every room. We hope you love your stay!

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.

Second visit....

  • 5 of 5
We returned to High Gear this fall but this time with 3 other couples. We were in Portland to see Fleetwood Mac at MODA. This home is so much fun and we spent more time in the neighborhood on this trip and found it even more interesting! Everyone raved about the house! The fabric store across the street, the restaurants, the bookstore and toy store for kids, farmers market etc etc etc. WONDERFUL! (just don't rent when we need it). :)

We had such a great time renting on Alberta Street. The size was perfect for our family, the location was such fun and the home was absolutely wonderful for our needs. It is warm, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is fully stocked with pans, the linens are supplied, parking is available and the whole feel of the home makes you want to stay and enjoy. Even though we spent most of our time exploring Portland, I recommend this wonderful home to all. The price is right and there is so much to see and do in the Alberta area. Thanks so much for our stay and I look forward to returning!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5
We were in town for a wedding at the Kennedy School. Comfortable, fun place for 6 adults, one teenager and one pre-teen. Other family members staying in hotels in the area stopped by "our place" just to hang out and enjoy Alberta Street. Great restaurants (breakfasts? all fantastic at Tin Shed, Pine State Biscuits, Helsers, Waffle Window), Great local shops all within walking distance. (thanks for the discounts!) I was concerned about parking since we had multiple cars, but had no problems. Very quiet at night. Family corn hole tournament was a highlight. Highly recommend.

Wonderful house, fantastic location, awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5
Six of us (including 1 child) stayed at High Gear and we were so sad to leave. What a great house in a perfect location. The house had everything we needed - we were all very pleased. Alberta Street is such a fun place to be. We stayed in downtown Portland before and after our stay at the house and even when we weren't at the house we found ourselves coming back to the Alberta area. We took easy day trips from the house to the Columbia River Gorge area and the Coast. We loved having laundry facilities at the house (though I would note for others with kids that the laundry closet is in the same room with the bunk bed so we had to work around the kid's sleep schedule in order to get laundry done). There is a nice park with a playground nearby and so many great restaurants and coffee places in walking distance (including a coffee shop literally across the street). We would love to rent this house again!

Beautiful House and Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5
My buddies and I rented both the upper and lower units of Shift for our annual guys trip and couldn't have been happier with it - beautiful house, loved the location right on Alberta St - so close to coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, wine stores etc. - very reasonable price. Have nothing but good things to say about this place. Highly recommend.

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.

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.
