Centrally located, this well-equipped condominium located on the top floor of a classic brick building was designed with comfort and luxury in mind. With brand new stainless steel appliances, slate counter tops and wood floors, your temporary home away from home has been completely and tastefully remodeled from the ground up.
This fantastic Northwest Portland location provides endless conveniences. The Portland Streetcar, just outside your door, will take you to downtown Portland or South Waterfront in minutes and connects you to the MAX light rail system. Forest Park, the largest natural urban forest reserve in the U.S is located nearby and invites you to come and explore 5000 acres of hiking trails.
Spend the day here or in the Columbia Gorge, hiking, biking, or kayaking, then return home for a quick shower and you are out the door to Portland's nightlife. Take in the symphony or get tickets to one of Portland's numerous live theater performances. Cinema 21, featuring independent films is just two short blocks away. You are blocks from numerous art galleries in the Pearl District and across the street from one of Portland's artist 'active spaces'. At the end of the day, you are a short walk or ride back to your urban oasis in the middle of it all.
For your convenience we provide free cable, high speed internet, flat screen TV, DVD player and CD player/stereo system. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking and baking needs. If additional, specialty items are needed just ask in advance. Pre-stocking the refrigerator before your arrival is also available.

During their stay:
"The apartment is fantastic! The photos do not do it justice! We are really happy here."
What a well thought out little apartment. It really isn't little at all since it was so well-thought out. The kitchen has EVERYTHING you need -but you are so well-situated in town you'll want to go out to eat too! It's a short hop to downtown or the Pearl District area. Also a very short drive to zoo and OMSI. We stayed with our 5 year old and the space worked well. I am not usually a fan of A/C but it is really the only reason I didn't give it a 5-which isn't quite fair since rarely does Portland have a heat wave but we happened to arrive during the beginning of one and being coastal residents, it was nearly twice the temperature we are used to. Because of the safety feature of the windows, the fan just didn't help much.
Great experience spending a month in Slabtown at Ellen's condo. Everything was within walking distance - shops, supermarkets, cafes with outdoor seating, cinema, yoga studio - and the streetcar right outside in case of longer trips. The condo was small but extremely well equipped and Ellen was very responsive for any questions we had. As a cook, I was pleased that cooking tools and utensils were all provided. With the proximity of the farmers markets cooking was a pleasure. With the windows open there was a lovely cooling breeze even on hot summer days. All good.......
We had fantastic stay in Portland and were so happy with our choice with NW Lovejoy.
Fantastic Traits -
Efficient space - everything you need laid out efficiently
Well appointed - all aspects in wonderful working order
Convenience - We were able to walk everywhere. Rose Garden, Washington Park, Pittoc Mansion, downtown, zoo. Quality restaurants, coffee spots and pubs right out the front door. Laundry available. Public transportation literally right out the front door.
Things to work on -
SO HOT - There is a large fan but with windows on one side only there is nowhere for the air to go. Hard to sleep at times. A ceiling fan would be helpful.
Cleanliness - Tub, stove top, floors, and comforter not totally clean. I would recommend that the owner check in with the cleaning service.
Normal supplies - no toilet paper in the unit
We had a fantastic time and would rent again
I needed to stay in Portland for 6 weeks and could not drive. The location (across the street from light rail) and easy walking distance to stores and restaurants made the condo perfect for me. Friends used the included parking slot when they visited. The condo is well stocked with basics and even came with plastic wrap. Comfy bed, nice towels, roomy closet, fun dishes! Having a laundry in the basement was convenient. The owner was easy to communicate with and very responsive when a light bulb burned out. A good place for a longer stay.
We rented this condo for the purpose of experiencing downtown Portland to see if we really want to move there from suburbia. The condo is well equipped, so the only thing we needed to bring was clothes and personal items. It worked well for the 2 of us, as we spent a great deal of time out exploring and taking in all the sounds, people and sights. We ate several meals in the condo as there are 5 grocery stores within a 20 minute walk or less. There's a coffee pot, but with 3 really good coffee shops within a block or less you might just want to stow the pot and go out for coffee. Restaurants for whatever food you fancy within 10 minutes or less. At least 8 brewpubs within 15 minutes. Virtually no noise from within the building, but the noise is noticeable from the I-405 with the windows open - which they were all the time due to a warm month. The white noise machine came in handy at night. The unit is in good condition and Ellen was very responsive to any of our requests. If you want to explore further than on foot the streetcar is right out front. You can buy a daily pass that covers the streetcar, light rail and bus. Don't forget to take some hikes in Forest Park, almost 80 miles of trails.
I have stayed over for almost 7 weeks while I was doing a training in a PCC college. Not easy to find an apartment from over sea but I can tell that I was very happy of my choice From the first day I arrived until the last day of my stay everything went well. Easy to find and the communication with the landlord was very clear
The apartment is well located, well furnished I had everything I needed even more !
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need
The appartement is also well located you can go everywhere very quickly and you have all you need around your door : close to downtown, close to the NW23rd street (very vibrant neighborhood) , not far from the willamette river and close to the zoo and OMSI.
Very easy to go to the rose garden too
Will definitely return to this place !
