About Alyce LaGasse

As a writer, I am rarely in one place for long. Portland is my choice for 'home base' and for good reasons.

An east coast transplant - I chose Oregon and Portland in specific, for its calming, nurturing energy.

This city has it all - from outdoor recreation, and a cosmopolitan outlook on art and music, to jazz, blues, and notably, some of the best restaurants in the country.

It certainly has the best farmers market!! The organic foods and selections at the farmers markets rival those in Paris! REALLY!

I am not there very much as I am traveling for work. This is my personal unit - the furnishings and amenities reflect that - this is not a standard 'rental'.

The city is alive, bustling and filled with energy. So many beautiful places to explore - the Oregon coast, the Columbia River Gorge, and Portland itself will keep you occupied for months.

Alyce LaGasse purchased this condo in 2007

What makes this condo unique

LOCATION is fantastic. Ideally situated on the river - walkable to almost every site of interest in downtown and the Pearl.

Off the balcony, the river flows by with views of the sunrise and all of the excitement that living on the river brings.

Yet, the condo is right next to downtown. In a short walk or street car ride, you are in the midst of a wonderful, clean, safe and cosmopolitan city.

It is the best of all worlds. Nature, quiet, and no vying for parking - leave your car in a private, underground car and explore the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

May 2013

We stayed at Alyce's apartment for a month in the spring.

It's within a beautiful full-service apartment complex on the riverfront downtown. My husband has knee problems, can't walk distances and hills, and the location suited us perfectly - on the beautiful riverfront walk for me, 2 blocks from the streetcar for him,  just a block or so to a lovely coffee cafe facing the river walk for both of us... One night we stood on the terrace and enjoyed the fireworks display which was the start of the Rose festival weeks.

We found the apartment just as described, and were delighted to find all the staples we needed to make our stay easier - no shopping for the basics necessary. Alyce provides spices, aluminum foil and plastic wrap, garbage bags, everything and more than what's in the listing. It made our lives so much easier. Shopping is a short streetcar ride to the Farmer's Market, Safeway, Whole Foods. With the wonderful Saturday Farmers Market, and it's fantastic produce, fish, smoked meats, cheeses, etc., we found ourselves cooking dinner in the apartment more than we had planned. And having lunch at the market. Our only issue was with the dining table, which while fine for breakfast, is wobbly and difficult for comfortable dinners.

We explored the neighborhoods, went to the opera, theater, museums, galleries, discovered clothing boutiques... all within a block or two of the streetcar. The Rose Test Garden and the Japanese Gardens turned out to be easier to get to than we thought, and well worth the short trip. Since this was a return trip for us, we only rented a car for a day and spent all our time in Portland. However, it was nice knowing that the garage was there for us.

Cannot do better than this!!

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom, one large bath condo is in the ideal location in Portland...right on the Willamette river! It's so close to the best restaurants, tap rooms, wineries, music venues and street car! The place is meticulously clean and the bed is AMAZING! U will not believe the views from this 8th story truly will take your breath away! I hate for others to discover this hidden gem,...u may want the unit when I want it! Been staying here for about 6 years (annual summer visits) and hope to continue to! And by the way, u won't find a sweeter owner to deal with.

Wonderful August Stay on Portland Riverfront

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as advertised. Modern, impeccably clean, very well equipped, and on the 8th floor directly overlooking the Willamette River--convenient to everything in downtown Portland whether walking (directly on a riverfront promenade) or taking the streetcar which was very close. Alyce was wonderful with followup emails as time got closer with suggested things to see and do. Inside the condo, she had clear written directions on how to use everything along with maps, a happy hour guidebook, etc., to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Very impressive!!

Great space and great location in Portland

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in 2010 and returned in 2014.

Well, the owner is spot on - this location is superb. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Riverfront - while still being in the midst of Portland activity. The condo faces the river - with no street in front of it - therefore no noise, cars, or traffic. I walked everywhere . . .downtown - the Pearl, Saturday market and farmers markets. If I had groceries from Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Safeway, (or a load of books from Powells) :):) I could simply get on the street car and cart it all to within a block of "home".

The condo is fully equipped - there were linens, nice glasses, a great mattress and all the staples I needed so I didn't have to spend extra for the basics.

Restaurants are all around - and the best of the best downtown as within walking distance - as are all the Portland concert venues.

A very nice place to spend time.

Owner's Response: I LOVE Portland . . . after visiting from Connecticut decades ago, it was a great choice to move here to enjoy all of the excitement and beauty that the city and Oregon has to offer. I want my guests to appreciate this city as well. I am committed to making their visits perfect. From fully stocked shelves with staples and paper goods, to maps, brochures, and travel suggestions . . . guests feel comfortable and immediately at home. And, they get settled quickly so they can begin exploring the area. As a travel writer I have been on the road for months at a time. I know what I like when I stay places and I strive to provide that for my guests.

Such a great place we go back annually!

  • 5 of 5

I love Portland, and this is the only place we stay we we travel to Portland! This condo is in a perfect location! Right on the willamette river, near the best water front restaurants, by an awesome health club, walking distance to all the fun events the city has to offer. We lengthen our stay with each passing year! The condo itself is spotless and has an incredibley comfortable king bed. The views from the unit are amazing. If you are lucky enough to stay here over the Fourth of July you'll see a fireworks show that will blow your mind on the river IN FRONT of you! The owner is a doll to work with, and she has an underground parking space for your stay. You will not do better than this is Portland....just don't rent in when I want it!!!

Perfect Vacation Getaway Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I chose Portland to escape the Austin heat and to see a portion of the Pacific Northwest for our first time. We could not have chosen a better location and could not have hand-picked a better owner. We actually booked the property in April. Between then and the rental start date, Alyce, the owner, sent us numerous emails containing useful suggestions regarding things to do. We tried to do them all. The condo overlooks the Willamette River, and it's very relaxing to sit on the balcony for morning coffee or evening wine while watching the kayakers, joggers, and bicyclists. Very peaceful. The condo is ideal for a couple. It has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay, yet it's not so fancy to cause discomfort. Think homey. The concierge staff is very helpful and friendly. Entry to the building is very secure. Same can be said for the elevators to the various floors. I could go on and on but I would be repeating what other reviewers have already said. In summary, we would definitely stay here again should the opportunity present itself.

Portland Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous home has everything you need. It is in a perfect location to enjoy every minute of the day whether you go out to enjoy the city or stay in to enjoy the view.

Public transportation is a step out the door. Downtown Portland is a couple blocks away. The building is in the middle of a river walk with restaurants, parks... Oh, and did I mention the view?!

The owner is simply wonderful to work with. The building concierge staff is awesome.
