Overview

Northeast Portland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautiful 1908 Craftsman home (Garden view unit) in the heart of one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Portland! You will never stay in a nicer garden view unit! This is urban living at it's finest. Beautiful high historic end homes, gorgeous tree lined boulevards, wonderful people, and extremely close to many wonderful restaurants and shopping. This is one of the best neighborhoods in Portland without a doubt. The wonderful and energetic neighborhoods of Alameda, Beaumont-Wilshire, Concordia, Laurelhurst and Grant Park all surround Historic Irvington, but she is the Grand Dame of them all!

A car is not absolutely necessary, walk to the MAX (transportation system - 10 minutes) and the bus line is around the corner. You are a 5-10 minute walk from literally 20 restaurants! 5 minutes walking to Lloyd Center and 8 minute walk to the Rose Quarter. Downtown is a 7 minute drive or 9 minutes on the MAX.

Your basement unit is almost 600 square feet and has been completely restored with the original hardware. The sofa folds down to sleep a total of 4. Why stay in a hotel when you can live like a local?

The vast majority of the vacation rentals in Portland operate illegally, but this house has the rare and therefore coveted 'Conditional Use' permit that the city requires in order to run a vacation rental for short term stays.

Our caretakers live onsite, tucked away in an apartment on the main level. Feel free to ask them for help at anytime.

This apartment is extremely well furnished, with everything you need to make your stay wonderful, giving you maximum comfort. Large windows ensure the unit is well lit, and a brand new hydroponic heating system ensures warmth on cold nights. Stainless steel appliances, travertine countertops, wireless internet, a 30' flat screen TV, DVD player and a Bose Stereo give you the luxuries that you have in your own home! Your own illuminated, private entrance on the side of the house guarantees you complete privacy.

A raised herb and vegetable garden on the south side of the house is available to you.

You will get our personal recommendations for shopping, dining and activities and complimentary coffee and tea.

This is our part time home, and we absolutely love it. We guarantee you will feel the same. Come and be part of our family as you sample all that Irvington Neighborhood and Portland have to offer!

Why The Owner chose Portland

I have always loved the Pacific Northwest, though my daughter, family and my business are in Phoenix. Most of my maternal family is from this area, and many relatives still live near here.

My mother was born in Vancouver, WA and used to come down to the Lloyd Center to shop with her mother when she was very young. She has fond memories of this place. When she first saw this house and this neighborhood, she literally cried.

I have always had a great time here. I love the neighborhood. I love my neighbors and the general vibe that Portland has. I love the people, and even the weather(most of the time) I love the fact that you can go hiking or biking in the AM, and be back in time for lunch at a fabulous restaurant. I love that nothing looks the same, that everything is unique.

What makes this apartment unique

I guess I could go on and on, but I really like the urban lifestyle. You can walk anywhere from the Irvington Neighborhood. The gardens and yards are just unbelievable. There are tons of great restaurants and coffee shops everywhere you turn. Portland is such a great destination in every way, and I think Irvington neighborhood is the crown jewel of it all.

I have put tons of money and my heart and soul into this property, and I think and hope it shows. I hope you enjoy this house as much as I do.

Historical House in a Charming Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home that is 20 minutes from the PDX airport and 30 minutes form downtown Portland. I very much enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen and unit as a whole. Even though it was a basement unit, there was always enough natural light coming through the windows. I was able to use the backyard patio to read as the weather was beautiful. The neighborhood is stunning, with shops and coffee a few blocks away. I met Andrea, the caretaker of the property on my stay, and she was so very nice. Mark, who helped me book, was already great to work with as well.

The Garden Apartment provided a wonderful stay for the 4 of us for a long weekend in Portland.

  • 5 of 5

The location is in a beautiful old historic part of Portland. We were within walking distance to many restaurants and shops and access to the TriMet is on the same block. The apartment is nicely arranged, clean and provides all that you need from cooking to doing laundry. There's even a pantry with some basic provisions. It was unusually hot in Portland during our stay, but we were very lucky that there is central air conditioning that was turned on. The back patio is a wonderful place to retreat to for reading or a meal. The caretaker is very available, friendly and informative, if you need her. We look forward to staying here again when we return.

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

It was fantastic for a family friendly stay with a toddler, close to bus lines, very clean, and friendly but unobtrusive host.

Garden View Apartment in Portland

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent little apartment in the historic Irvington neighborhood. Great location near transportation and plenty of street parking. Very nice interior, updated and comfortable. Within walking distance to Safeway, good restaurants and even an indoor shopping mall. The kitchen was nicely stocked for cooking and lots of informative brochures helped me as this was my first visit to Portland. I will definitely return! Only downside was you could hear the upstairs tenants occasionally and it is on a very busy street so you hear some street noise when the windows are open. Has a nice laundry room for your use. Even a neighborhood cat who said hello to me through my bedroom window. Portland is a great city, very fun and pedestrian and bike friendly! Thanks for the great visit!

Tastefully decorated with everything you need! Centrally located with great walkability. I didn't get to use the backyard space, but that was also beautiful. I would definitely stay here again!!
