I’ve lived in (and loved) Portland for 24 years. My children and I love exploring greater Portland and especially our own front yard: the creativity and vibrance of Alberta Street – the restaurants and food trucks, museums and shops that our neighborhood has to offer. Of course, we love sharing Alberta Streets with other families, too. And, we hope, with you!
Bella purchased this Townhome in 2007
Why Bella chose Concordia
Northeast Portland and, specifically, the Alberta Arts District offers the best of the The City of Roses: so many incredible eateries (restaurants, food trucks, street carts, cafés, breweries, and more!), shops, museums and other creative outlets, just minutes from our front door. You can walk to the grocery store and pharmacy. We have access to several public transportation routes and highways to downtown, the coast, and to the Gorge, Wine Country, Hood River, and Multnomah Falls. And Alberta Street is also close to downtown (just ~15 minutes by car) and very convenient to the airport, too.
What makes this Townhome unique
This is one of the very few large permitted homes in Portland – and one of the largest in the Alberta Arts District. It’s about more than our number of bedrooms, though: the Gingko GuestHouse is a newer building in a lovely residential neighborhood. And it has everything you need. Over the years, we’ve learned from our guests and gone beyond the basics (fast WiFi, satellite TV, etc.) to slowly add all the bells and whistles – everything from hip furnishings and two washer/dryers, right down to complimentary toiletries and a fully equipped kitchen. Last year we updated the home. This year we will be enriching the decor more and more over time.

Clean well appointed house in a great part of toe
The property is clean, well maintained, and well appointed with everything you could need. Everything seemed new or in excellent condition. It is a multiplex and we heard VERY little noise from the other tenants. The hostess Belladonna was helpful and attentive if needed—we had zero problems with the house or the stay in general. Lots to do within walking distance Alberta and Killingsworth. Overall I highly recommend this property!
Great house in amazing location.
Bella was an amazing host and was very accommodating. The house was clean, cute, and perfect for a large group. The location is close to Alberta and parking wasn’t a problem for us. I would recommend Bella and this wonderful property.
Clean, ample space, well-situated, fully-stocked kitchen, comfortable bedrooms
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
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
Wonderful home with plenty of space for all 6 of us.
The property is perfectly located in a great neighborhood where you can walk to the market and cafes and great shops.
The owner saved us at the last minute and was extremely helpful. Loved everything about this place! Highly recommend staying here.
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.
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!
