Overview

About the property

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 Sabin, Alameda, Eliot, King, Grant Park, Sullivan's Gulch and Lloyd Center all surround Historic Irvington, but she is the Grand Dame of them all!

Irvington Neighborhood is on the national register of historic places, and it is very central. You can get anywhere in Portland within 10 minutes. 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 500 square feet and has been completely restored. The sofa folds down to sleep a total of 4.

The vast majority of the vacation rentals in Portland operate illegally, but this house has the coveted 'Conditional Use' permit ( # 08-175885-000-00-LU)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.

The backyard is available for the guests of this unit. It comes complete with an herb garden(for your cooking pleasure) pergola and built in stainless steel BBQ and sink. Enjoy Portland's weather in 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!

About The Owner

My name is Mark Reinoso, and my wife's name is Abigail Stewart. I have a daughter, Lauren, from my first marriage, who is 18. Abby and I have a8 year old son, Rocco and a 4 year old daughter Zara

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

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.

Awesome, quiet and practical!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay in the Garden Level and we will keep coming! Has everything you need including the space, laundry, kitchen, etc.

Only recommendations: add a mirror in the bedroom so I can get ready while my husband is showering, new pillows or at least an option for a more firm pillow.

Not ideal vacation stay

  • 2 of 5

I have stayed at half a dozen bnb's and so far loved them. This was different. To begin with description clearly stated 2 beds was only one. When I called and text Mark the owner he never responded. The house rules whete long and strict..I got charged cleaning fee but asked to wash all dishes, take out trash and put all linens in piles or I would lose my deposit? Neighborhood pretty but would never stay here again. Dark basement unit. Unit manager never responded after initial convo about sofa bed vs. description 2 beds.

Owner's Response: Patricia never read the listing correctly, she didn't look at the pictures, she didn't read the bed breakdown. She booked this apartment thinking it was a 2 bedroom. There is one queen bed, and one sofa bed, like the listing has read for almost 10 years. It has never changed. She was very rude to me, my caretaker and then asked for a refund, despite staying all 5 days. She appealed to arbitration, and was denied. Despite all of this, she did leave the apartment in nice condition, and aside from the endless complaining, she was a quiet guest.

Beautiful space, great perks

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked in the door we knew we were going to enjoy the Garden View apartment. It is decorated very tastefully, clean, and came with some extra amenities (a welcome note, bottle of wine, bathroom supplies).

The caretaker was very quick to respond to my emails and made us feel very welcome. We were even provided breakfast pastries on our first morning!

Only downside (and this was specific to our visit) was that there was a wedding party staying in the apartment above us and they were fairly noisy. But that kind of thing is out of anyone's control.

Great location - you can easily walk to lots of shops and restaurants. Definitely check out the frozen yogurt down the street!

Bonus: adorable neighborhood kitty greeted us with little chirps and nuzzles when we left each morning. Too sweet!
