Portland House Rental Photos and Description

Brand New Complete Remodel 2 Story, 5 Bed 3 Full Bath (sleeps 10)

Come stay at our charming, fully remodeled, spacious cottage in an adorable neighborhood of Portland. This is a home away from home! Everything is brand new as the house was redone from the studs up. The Metzger/Garden Home neighborhood is minutes from downtown Portland, the Portland Zoo, Japanese and Rose Gardens, blocks from Washington Square Mall and the Red Eagle Golf Course, one exit from Lake Oswego and has off street parking. Being only 6 blocks from I-5 makes it extremely convenient for any activity that brings you to Oregon: our world renowned wine country, skiing at Mt. Hood, a day at the coast, an Oregon Duck game in Eugene, cycling or business. Central downtown Portland is 14 minutes away by car. This location is our personal favorite and we have owned several homes in the neighborhood because it is convenient to everything, quaint, quiet and well established. The home is walking distance to the bus line, 5 blocks from Metzger Park, 1 mile from the Garden Home Rec Center which has summer camp for kids, classes for all ages, sports activities year round and much more. The Jewish Community center and Multnomah Village are 3.5 miles away. Portland Community College Sylvania campus is 2 miles away. You will have the entire home to live in during your stay. The home is a large 2200 feet with 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths on a 1/2 acre with beautiful trees, a large lawn perfect for croquet or bocce ball (both provided) and a lovely sunset deck. There are 5 bedrooms, 2 upstairs and 3 downstairs. The upstairs master has a queen bed with a private bath and large walk in closet. The 2nd upstairs bedroom has 2 twin beds and a full bath off the hall. Downstairs has 1 bedroom with a queen bed, a 2nd room with a full bed, and a 3rd room with bunk beds. There is a spacious full bath downstairs. All 3 baths have shower and tub are stocked with soap, lotion, hair products, hair dryer. All of the linens are new and there are plenty of blankets and pillows and cozy comforters. Upstairs comfortably sleeps 4 and downstairs 6. All rooms have true mattresses; there are no futons or air mattresses. This is a very family friendly home as the downstairs offers a spacious living/ rec room and there's lots of yard to play in and explore. (Please note - - - due to insurance restrictions we absolutely do not allow events! Maximum people day or night is 10. Many people believe that if they rent this great, large home that they can throw an event but we do not allow events and we do live in the neighborhood!) If you choose to cook you have a well utensiled gourmet kitchen including oil, spices, coffee pot. A bottle of Oregon wine awaits you to get you started! There's a bread maker if you are so inclined! There is a phenomenal grocery store walking distance 4 blocks away for any food items you might need. There are lots of local pubs and eateries within a mile of the house and a guide to Portland's central restaurants is provided.

Kara and I are avid cyclists and can provide referrals to bike rental shops and great cycling destinations. We are not on site but close by if you need us. We love this house and our city and are excited to share both with you. Kara has decorated the house with treasures for all to enjoy. There are many original pieces of art, vintage touches and charming antiques but no lack of a modern feel!

Come and enjoy!

I grew up in the area and Kara emigrated from California in the 90s. We live in SW Portland close by and our office is not too far off in Lake Oswego. Kara is a Family Medicine doctor in private practice and I help run her very busy clinic. She has been practicing in the community for over 14 years and I have been a mortgage broker for 18 years. I continue to do mortgages for longtime clients, family and friends. We have 2 teenage boys, cats, chickens and fish. We race bicycles, cross train in any way we can including kayaking, skiing, riking (a combo run/hike sport we created because hiking was just too slow much to the chagrin of our kids!). Kara is a photographer and also paints, makes jewelry and can't wait to get a pottery wheel someday. She supports local artists any way she can and is an avid collector of modern and vintage artwork. I am a woodworker, lather and burgeoning chef. Kara recently sent me to a week of cooking boot camp at one of our local cooking schools and now there's no looking back. She really just wants me barefoot in the kitchen. We are avid herb and vegetable gardeners, love food, great wine, music and always look forward to helping guests with restaurant selections. We know the region well and have our favorite excursions and are available for guidance! We have used VRBO extensively for our travels in the US and all over Europe and hope our experiences help make yours a wonderful one! We are excited to share this lovely home with you! James

James purchased this house in 2012

We are hoping to share our love of the Northwest and make some new friends by opening our Oak Street home. We purchased the home for Kara's mother last year but cold feet have kept Mom in California for now. We love the house too much to sell! It has recently been remodeled from the studs out and is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family road trip with a big crew.

Easy access to the two main freeways makes this the perfect location for your visit and sight seeing.

The accommodations and location were perfect

At the end of our stay, I asked the six adults and two kids what they would have liked to have that was missing. The unanimous answer - nothing! The accommodations and location were perfect, neighborhood, great, and as gracious hosts as anyone could,possibly,be. We were in town for our son's wedding which everyone agreed was fabulous. Using the house as home base was integral in making it so. Thanks for everything! Can't wait to come back!

The House was Perfect

We were a group of 6 for most of our 3 nights. 2 adult children were only able to stay for one night due to work commitments back home. We were in town to visit family and visit our home town. We all enjoyed our stay and the house was perfect - so nice to stay in a home rather than a hotel. We would thoroughly recommend staying there. You will love it!

Perfect stay in Portland

My family and I spent a week in Portland and this house was absolutely perfect for us! The neighborhood is beautiful and is just a quick trip from downtown. It is very spacious, with eight of us we never had any issues with privacy and I can hardly say the same about a hotel. One of my favorite things about the house is that there is no TV! At first we weren't so sure how the kids would handle it, but to our surprise, they didn't miss it at all! What's better is that when it came time to wind down at night, they played games together and read books! Things I have a hard time getting them to do at home. James and Kara, thank you for an amazing week! I hope we can do it again soon!

Great updated house, we enjoyed our stay. Nicely decorated, very clean, wonderful deck, worked out very well for our family. Nice location, close to the interstate, 15 minutes from downtown, many parks, zoo, and restaurants, etc. Walking distance to a new Fred Meyers. James and Kara were very accommodating, easy to work with. Would definitely recommend this to friends and relatives.

Anything you could possibly want is less than 15 minute drive. The access to freeway is 1 mile away. Great quiet neighborhood that is 1 mile from the largest mall in Oregon, Costco, 7 theater cinema and walking distance to a brand new Fred Meyers grocery. Metzger is the hidden gem of Portland. It is minutes from everything Portland has to offer and easy access to the freeways that will take you to the splendid destinations just outside the city. *There is no washer and dryer provided. Most families are here for a short stay and bring enough clothes and has not been an issue. A nearby laundromat is convenient. Monthly renters we can make available.
