About Mark Hewitt

I am a proud native Portlander. I grew up here in the N/NE Portland I went to Grant High School and graduated from Portland State. I have watched this neighborhood blossom around me. I bought this home 16 years ago and have lived in it off and on for the last 12 years.

Mark Hewitt purchased this house in 1999

Why Mark Hewitt chose Portland

I bought this property because I was worried that if I didn't get a peice of the neighborhood I grew up in, that it was going be gone.

What makes this house unique

I grew up in the Historical Irvington neighborhood here in NE Portland and have always loved older turn of the century homes. Pretty bay windows, built ins and hardwood floors. There is something cozy and comforting in these older homes for me.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Mark.  Our family very much enjoyed our stay at your house--it was perfect!  This was our first time renting a house, but thanks to how well things went it won't be our last time!

Great house in a great neighbourhood.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Mark was painless and easy. The house was as advertised and the it cannot be over stated how great this neighbourhood is. You have many great amenities right on your doorstep (pub, coffee, food, etc.) and easy access into the downtown as well. The house is large and roomy and worked well for our guys reunion weekend.

Charming home with a great location

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for the stay in Portland last weekend! Your place was a great launching pad for us to see lots of the city and the surrounding areas. Everything wa very comfortable, clean, and accommodating in the home. Having a dinner spot across the street helped make the decision for food simple and easy after a really long day. And it was easy to wander along Mississippi in search of grub and breweries on other days. Would certainly recommend.

Very nice house in great location

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 stayed in the Mississippi bungalow for 2 nights at the end of our recent Oregon vacation. It was a very nice place and a great set-up for us - lots of room, wonderful to have a kitchen and laundry facilities, a fun, walkable neighborhood to explore and shop in right outside the front door (and I particularly loved having the Albina Press coffee shop just one block away for my morning joe!), and easy to get to other parts of the city and the airport. We didn't use the upstairs room because Portland was having a heat wave (100 degrees!) and even with fans it was a little too warm, but we still had plenty of room for all. Mark was great to work with - very responsive and flexible. Hope we get a chance to come back again soon.

Great location, great house!

  • 5 of 5

Mark & Bethany were very hospitable! It was a hot weekend, so we appreciated the fans throughout and air conditioning in the master bedroom to help us sleep. Spacious living and a nice kitchen/dining room for family meals.

This home is in the Mississippi neighborhood, close to numerous restaurants, bars, and music venues.There is a Coffee shop (Albina Press) just a half a block away. Prost is also a popular bar specializing in German beer with amazing food carts surrounding it. One of my favorite spots is Mississippi Pizza also on Mississippi Ave. Williams Ave and Alberta St. - Good food, shopping, art and character unique to Portland. Google these streets to get a flavor. Mississippi Ave begins 3 blocks from the house. This home is also just 1 mile from Downtown and the Pearl District.
