We are originally from the UK & Canada, have traveled extensively in the US and Europe using vacation rentals. We have been coming to Portland for many years and love the city. It is a paradise for walking, cycling, eating and drinking, and you do not need a car! We have 2 places in prime locations, the Feathered Nest is one of them.

Debbie Mills purchased this apartment in 2012

The architects who converted this 100 year old house into 2 units did a great job of maintaining the old charm while adding modern amenities, we have recently upgraded the property again. It is a home from home in the absolute best area in Portland.

Walking distance to restaurants, bars, breweries, theaters, light rail, parks, the river, downtown & the Pearl district, the Timers soccer stadium, Lots of separate spaces, a peaceful porch and sun room for reading and rain watching. Large dining room, living room and kitchen.

We spent 3 great nights at The Nest. It was our first time to visit Portland and this location is great for exploring the NW neighborhoods and the Pearl District on foot. You can really see, shop and eat to your hearts content. The Pittock Mansion is a short drive from the house and was worth seeing. If you have a car, finding parking can be a bit tricky but it's doable. Hint...come in a compact car, not a giant SUV or a truck.

We visited in July and the weather was uncharacteristically hot! Ninety plus degrees. We had the ground floor with the second bedroom being on the second floor. The first floor was nice and cool, as it is air conditioned. The second floor bedroom was very, very hot as it is not air conditioned and sleeping was uncomfortable.

HOWEVER, everything else in The Nest was terrific. It could not have been any better!! Everything was fresh, spotless and comfy. The kitchen was so much fun..well stocked with dinnerware, glasses and had great cooking equipment. Cooking some of our meals on vacation was actually fun. The sun porch was delightful and a great place to read and relax! The backyard area was comfortable and we were able to grill. The master bath was very nice and had a great tub that can accommodate someone over six foot tall. Do not hesitate to stay at the Nest. We plan to return.

3rd time at the Nest...Still the best!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed here 3 times now. It is far and above the best VRBO in Portland I have stayed in (and we have stayed in PLENTY). The location is great for walking - pubs, restaurants, Powell's, downtown, 23rd are all within minutes. The house itself is always perfectly clean and has everything we need.

I have stayed here with different groups of people: friends and family. Everyone from my 80-year-old father-in-law to my down-right-picky British friend loved the Nest! We consider the Nest our Portland home and we can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting the city. Thank you again, Debbie and Robbie for creating this amazing oasis in the city.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been happier with our first VRBO experience! The Feathered Nest was truly a home away from home. It was incredibly clean, furnished comfortably and stylishly, had every item we could possibly need, want or dream of, and was in the ideal location. We had trouble operating the washer and Debbie was there within 15 minutes to help us. We loved having Netflix and tons of Portland area maps, books, menus, and magazines all over the house. We loved the 23rd Ave area - great shops and restaurants! If we return to Portland, I would not hesitate staying here again and I highly recommend it to anyone who plans to visit Portland.

Couples week

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the nest for six nights. It is a well kept two bedroom home in a great location for enjoying Portland nightlife. Close to many great restaurants and bars. Owneres were great to work with. Second bedroom upstairs affords privacy for two couples. We will be back.

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5
Ideal place for the adventurous person, couple, family. Close enough to the city to walk, far enough to have quiet. Beautiful home! We rented bikes and toured the entire city.

Lovely home in a great location

  • 5 of 5
My three business partners and I used this home for a week of strategic planning and team building. It's a great layout for work with a large table in the dining room, and there are enough places for people to break away on their own for a phone call or break. All of the rooms are warm and inviting. The kitchen is large and up to the task of preparing a meal for a group.

The location is wonderful. The street is quiet and tree lined, making time on the sunporch with windows open a treat.
