Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, Boise: Btwn Mississippi, Alberta and Pearl District

After styling and art directing photo shoots for Rejuvenation Lighting and House Parts, finally being able to dial our own place was like playing in a sandbox. Joyfully styled bedrooms include queen, double and twin hide-a-bed in the study (that can be made into a queen). The kitchen is fully appointed with All-Clad, gas range, Cusinart, blender and microwave. And, should you decide you don't feel like walking next door for a cappuccino, we have at least three ways you can make your own coffee. Then sip on the back deck in a quiet backyard. We love the art we have collected over the years and left much of it in the house for you to enjoy during your stay.

There is a 52' HDTV, Wifi, Broadband, Apple TV, and Aperion home theater system.

Our house is registered with the City of Portland as an Accessory Short-Term Rental.

Our ASTR Permit number is 15-185134-000-00-HO.

About Don Rood and Nicole Misiti

We grew up in Oregon – Nicole in Roseburg, Don in Portland – and have been fortunate enough to watch Portland come into its own. A very European city. Family friendly, but urbane enough to keep us excited to live here and build a thriving design practice.

We love to travel. We love the people we meet when we do. Travel expands our minds and revives our souls.

Our goal is to provide an ideal home for you and yours to have a wonderful vacation experience. To that end, we have made a conscious decision to furnish our home with higher quality cookware, bedding and other lovely doodads that make a home a wonderful place to stay.

We hope this house becomes the home of many wonderful memories for years to come.

Don Rood and Nicole Misiti purchased this house in 2004

Why Don Rood and Nicole Misiti chose Portland

We bought this house several years ago after we had purchased and renovated a small building next door for our design studio. We intended it to be a long-term rental, but Don liked it enough to move himself with his daughter.

Since then, Williams Avenue has just blossomed with restaurants, shops, bakeries, coffee, food carts, parks and more.

Now his daughter grown. This sweet house is an empty nest. Don is looking for a home outside the city. It's time to share it with those who want to experience Portland.

We love the place and have kept it pretty much the way it was while living there – including much of the art. It is homey, family friendly and smack dab in middle of several wonderful neighborhoods, all worth exploring.

A brilliant place to stay in Portland

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here for 4 nights whilst on a trip to the West coast. The house is very comfortable with all the equipment you could ever need and plenty more besides. We loved all the stylish, arty features that made the house interesting. There are plenty of bars and places to eat within walking distance and the centre of Portland is easily accessible by car in about 15 minutes. If you're looking for an excellent place to stay in Portland, this is the one that should be on your list.

Really nice property and area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend recently and six of us were very comfortable. The bakery next door is great for getting some breakfast treats to have back at the house. The street has many bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Parking is on the street but we seldom had any trouble finding parking. Home is very convenient to major roads and airport. Don was great to deal with and checked in to make sure all was okay. Would recommend and would stay here again.

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

When we travel we stay in hotels and bed and breakfasts. This time we stayed in a house and it was a wonderful experience especially with family.

The house was perfect for our small group. We all had our private space and we usually gathered in the kitchen talking and cooking. It was very clean, organized and easy booking arrangements. I think we will rent a home again when we travel with family.

The Mississippi/Boise Neighborhood is one of the most energetic neighborhoods in Portland. Two doors from our house you can enjoy one of the city's best new bakeries where Phillippe makes all his breads with only wild yeasts, and pastry chef Alissa Frice creates superb pastries and desserts that make us sigh and giggle with each bite. The bakery baristas were trained by Sterling Roasters.

Next door to Phillippe's is Lardo's newest location, where Chef Rick Gencerelli serves up killer pork sandwiches and salads and dozens of the region's best beers.

Two blocks away you will find our favorite restaurant on earth – Lincoln Restaurant (Jenn Louis was one of Food and Wine Magazine's ten best new chefs in the US in 2012). There are many lovely shops including Lark Press (lovely letterpress and Woodblock Chocolate), Ristretto Roasters and their single origin espresso, expert but friendly baristas and rotating art shows, Ink and Peat (singular florist and home shop), Hopworks and Lompoq brewpubs, Tasty 'n Sons, Chop Butchers and New Seasons, the area's locally owned sustainable grocers. Walk six blocks and you are in the heart of the Mississippi neighborhood with dozens of shops, restaurants, bars, food carts and more.

Williams Avenue is the most active bike commuting route in the United States. This can be particularly entertaining from two comfy porch chairs each June during Portland's Naked Bike Ride.

Next door, peak in the fifteen foot high window at The Felt Hat, a local design office to see what the latest bespoke installation they are creating, testing or playing with.

Living on Williams has been living in the heart of Portland culture. We love it here and hope you do as well.
