Very upscale, modern, comfortable townhouse
Our stay at Terry & Michelle's townhouse was great. It was very tastefully decorated with modern, comfortable furniture, and beds. We felt very "at home". The kitchen was well stocked, and we enjoyed preparing lots of our meals here. We had dinner guests and were pleased with the table settings too.
When the weather was nice, we took walks on the trails that surround the area. It was early spring and it was beautiful to see the forest come alive.
Fantastic townhouse and location!
This is a clean and very, very comfortable townhouse. The linens and beds were very nice and the bathrooms, kitchen and entire townhouse were very clean. It's a pet-friendly rental but you'd never know it as there was absolutely no pet smell in the building. Everything you'd want for your stay is in the place. It's close by to walking trails, a park, and a small towncenter with a market, a restaurant with delicious food, and a Starbucks. A 5 minute drive will take you to another shopping center with a great grocery store and other small stores as well as close to Washington Park and a beautiful local mansion. All of the AAA designated spots to see are within fifteen to thirty minutes. The owners were great to work with and were very helpful when I had questions about the rental procedure. Forest Heights is the ideal location in which to rent.
Fantastic property & experience
We were looking for a nice condo for a few weeks in a location convenient to our children in Lake Oswego as a summer getaway from our dessert home. We found Michelle's wonderful place in the beautiful Forest Heights area of NW Portland. It was a picturesque representation of the Northwest that we will gladly return to when the situation presents itself. The property is homey, well cared for and immaculately maintained. It is well located for most things in the Willamette Valley, although GPS is a must to efficiently negotiate your way around the metro area. Michelle is the ultimate host/landlord who was extremely accommodating to our needs in every way. She responds quickly to inquiries, requests or issues that may arise before and during the stay. Although we didn't have the opportunity to meet her since she lives outside the area, we feel like we came to know her well during our many communications. We would unequivocally recommend her home to anyone.
Perfect Portland townhouse
Lovely well-appointed townhome in convenient location. Home contained everything we needed to be conformable and happy during our stay. Close to everything, including a nice community coffee shop, store and restaurant; plus, nice trails and parks within walking distance!
Perfect Place in Every Way!
My husband and I spent the month of July at this property. It far exceeded our expectations for comfort and prime location. The owner, Michelle, was a pleasure to work with. We needed her help only once, and she responded immediately. The townhouse reflects the owners’ care for their renters and their excellent taste in design and furnishings. The home was well-stocked with kitchen, bathroom, and entertainment items. The beds were very comfortable, and there was more than enough storage in the closets and dressers. July was one of the warmest on record, so we were especially grateful for the central air conditioning. Just like the listing says, the property is in a quiet, immaculate neighborhood with walking trails, a shopping area, and a bus stop just 3 minutes away. The bustling Pearl District and the city center are 10 minutes away. Our goal was to experience Portland, the ocean, Mt. Hood, and the countryside. This townhouse was the ideal launching pad for our adventures. We highly recommend it.
Townhouse was great!
Renting a home for our family vacation to Portland was all new for us and we had a wonderful time. The townhouse was everything the pictures show and we all enjoyed immensely having it as our home base. We were delighted with the beautiful neighborhood and the townhouse itself was bright, clean, cheery and nicely furnished. We were total newbies at this but Michelle was great to work with and we all agreed we that we couldn't have picked a better place for our fist experience renting a vacation home.
There was a moment of panic when we arrived in our full sized pickup and saw the size of the garage... but it fit! We had to fold the mirrors in and I stationed a spotter at on each side but by the end of the week we were old pros at docking our big boat. Any car or mid-sized SUV would fit just fine, but -just an FYI- any truck bigger than a Nissan Titan would probably not fit... and there's no parking outside.
We would definitely recommend this as an outstanding place to stay in Portland.
Portland has great shopping, entertainment and eating. We are on the hill above downtown Portland, less than 10 minutes from the Nob Hill/Northwest 23rd area, the Pearl District and the downtown shopping and restaurant district. We are a short two blocks from Forest Height's 'Town Center,' with a Starbucks, the gourmet pizza mecca, Pizzacato, and a very nice cafe. The town center also features a dry cleaners and a nail salon. There is a free bus from the town center that goes to a nearby transit center, from where you can take the MAX light rail or buses in any direction. The townhouse is ideally located on the edge of the urban part of Portland's west side and additional recreational activities including hiking, running and biking both within Forest Heights and Portland's justly-famous Forest Park, which is less than five minutes away. Portland Audubon is less than four minutes away. If you wish to explore further, Oregon's wine country starts within a 20-minute drive; Oregon's spectacular coast is just over an hour away; the Columbia River Gorge starts within a 25-minute drive; Mt. Hood is just 45 minutes.
