About Bella

Enjoying the best that Portland has to offer and sharing it with my children means we love Alberta Street and the restaurants around the house. We love sharing our neighborhood with other families.

Bella purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Bella chose Northeast Portland

This home is located in an amazing location. It has lots of great amenities with-in and also in the immediate neighborhood. Walking distance to everything. Private washer/dryer. Free Street Parking. WIFI. It's easily accessible to the airport, to the culinary center that is it to drink Oregon's great beers, wine, coffee and even home made fruit soda. The grocery store and pharmacy and many businesses are a few short walking blocks away. Super convenient neighborhood to access public transportation or highways to take you downtown or out to the coast or to the Gorge, Wine Country, Hood River, or Multnomah Falls for the day.

What makes this townhome unique

Private, well maintained home where you can walk around and take in Portland Eats and Drinks or you can sit around and eat leftovers with your friends or work mates. This home is happiest when it's shining it's best features: Cool, fun and modern furnishings, a washer/dryer, full kitchen, plenty of bathrooms, and the little things that you just wouldn't pack for a trip.

Or you can hang out in the King bed and watch a rented DVD, stream Netflix, satellite Direct TV, Wi-Fi Internet or hang out on the front and back porches or take a walk around the neighborhood.

Nice home in a great neighborhood.

Perfect home for our Portland getaway

  • 5 of 5

This Alberta Arts District townhouse was a perfect "homebase" for our recent trip to Portland. The location allowed for easy access to downtown Portland and other Districts. The furnishings/decor were beautiful and helped contribute to the feeling that it was home for the weekend. The owner was quickly accessible via email/text - and all of our needs were met. We love good restaurants - and found there were too many to count in the Portland area. This trip was Le Pigeon, Veritable Quandary, Gruner, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Podnah's Pit BBQ (actually for breakfast - which was amazing). All highly recommended! All in all, a wonderful trip -- and we would definitely want to return to this townhouse!

Clean, ample space, well-situated, fully-stocked kitchen, comfortable bedrooms

  • 5 of 5

Bella was very responsive to our questions and needs. There were many amenities for travelers in the living room: maps, games, etc. Lovely porch, beds were comfortable, bathrooms had ample space and towels. The kitchen was small but had every convenience for cooking and meals. The neighborhood was colorful and well- located with many stores in walking distance.

We would consider future visits, thank you, Bella.

Loved Every bit of our vacation with my family

  • 5 of 5

Bella was easy to work with. We felt like this was a personal endeavour for her not just a faceless booking experience with a manager.

The house was easy to find and we had a rental car and parking was easy. Although the weather was bit chilly, everything was so close we just walked to eat and drink (everything you can imagine they hand make locally in Portland, it' s nuts). The food was really good everywhere we went. And we we drove to the beach one day, and to Multnomah Falls athe next day.

The seasons grocery store and that Kennedy School are must places to get what you need and also take in a cool vibe in a refurbished elementary school. My Uncle forgot his meds and was able to get them replaced at the Walgreens around the corner a couple blocks over. (which turned out to be a good excuse to eat at Hot Lips- they make theor own fruit soda!)

We just loved Portland and I'm voting for our next family vacation to come back to explore and play even more. Thanks again, Bella. loved every bit

We were 3 couples sharing Bella's beautiful house in NE Portland. All 3 bedrooms were very comfortable and nicely appointed - each with a private bathroom - beds were excellent and everything we wanted or needed was provided. The kitchen also had everything we wanted and we relaxed in the dining room and living room. The house is perfectly located in a quiet residential area, and just 3 blocks from restaurants, shopping (groceries, etc) and two different bus lines. We took full advantage of the senior $2.50 fee for all day public transportation and rode the buses, metro and trolleys throughout the day - Portland has the friendliest bus drivers in the world! Also 3 blocks away is Alberta St - which has dozens of restaurants and food options. Bella was very attentive to any need we had, and often offered good suggestions for our interests. Temps were unusually high during our stay, but the house AC kept us comfortable - and the plums from Bella's gardens were delicious. We liked Jake's Crawfish, Mother's Bistro and Henry's Tavern in downtown Portland - which is a very friendly city and offers beautiful gardens and lovely buildings. We also highly recommend Erik's Free downtown walking tour, which starts at City Hall across from Pioneer Square. We definitely recommend Bella's house and will stay there on our next visit to Portland.

Owner's Response: I swear I didn't write this review.  Nor trade it for a free stay. We were pounded this year with a record - breaking snowy and cold winter, rain in between, and then a super record- breaking summer of heat. Not everyone could stand being outdoors in this unusual heat. I'm glad that despite this , you still enjoyed all that the house and the neighborhood and our city has to offer. I guess all the extra "weather" we've had this year was the magic key to my grafted 4-type plum tree. Lucky timing you got to enjoy them. They were falling by the dozens! We couldn't keep up with catching those, despite effort. And you even went on an outdoor walking tour. I'm putting that on the to -do list.   You booked this trip's location far in advance of your vacation, and I'm really glad it met your expectations and beyond.  It goes without saying, that Bud, you and your friends are welcome anytime!

Lovely, spacious condo in the heart of Portland

  • 5 of 5

There's always a bit of trepidation about traveling in a new area as a family of seven, especially with a special needs child. Everything was perfect from the modern decor to the just like home touches in the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The condo was very clean and eco-friendly. The kitchen was amply stocked with all of the basics and more. A short trip to the grocery store for food and you're set to go; a great convenience for those of us with food allergies. Bella really thought of everything that you could possibly ever need. She's very kind and gave us her thoughts on things to do about town.The condo is located in a lively locale in the Alberta Arts district where stores, restaurants, and entertainment are all within walking distance. We loved our stay there and hope to come back again to Portland!
