Why Gary Beckler chose King
I purchased this property because the Piedmont neighborhood was up-and-coming in 2003. Now it is a vibrant neighborhood, close to downtown and many amenities. It is within walking distance of the Alberta Arts District, the Historic Mississippi Avenue district and the North Williams Corridor. This is a quiet residential neighborhood, great for walking and bicycling and close to the Peninsula Park Rose Garden.
What makes this House unique
The 1925 Craftsman bungalow has original charm including French doors, a unique wood-burning fireplace, a formal dining room, high coved ceilings and hardwood floors.

Comfy & Convenient
We had a family vacation which included 5 adults and 8 kids - and this home worked for us! Gary was a terrific host, and the home is stocked with so many unexpected things like games for the kids, free wine tasting certificates, books to read, and even extra toiletries in case we forgot some (and we did!) He went above and beyond for us when we asked him if he had a basketball for our boys to borrow. He said he didn't, but would go out and get one - and he did! Our boys were very happy to play with it at a nearby park. (I was hesitant to write this because I don't want to set up Gary to have to do this all the time...but I thought this was a good example of how helpful and accommodating he was.)
There are 4 queen-sized beds, and Gary had plenty of high-quality air mattresses for us to use, too. It was a bit cozy, and two of us slept in the living room, but our family is close and we didn't mind. There are only 2 bathrooms, which was a bit challenging when we all wanted to shower, but it really didn't pose much of an issue for us. Gary had plenty of towels and linens for us to use as well.
There's a Starbucks on the corner, and a Safeway grocery store just one block away. With so many people we made most of our meals at this home, and it was very convenient. Gary has more dishes than I've ever seen in a private home...we never ran out, even with all 13 of us eating multiple meals and snacks each day.
The location of the house was very convenient for us, because we planned to spend time in downtown Portland as well as hiking around Multnomah Falls. It only took us 15 minutes to drive here from the airport.
This was our first visit to Portland, and our stay at this home made for some great family memories!
Thank you Nia. You are welcome back anytime!
Great house, good location
My family was in town for a graduation at University of Portland. It's a beautiful home with lots of room, convenient location for us, and Gary was great to work with! Would definitely recommend and stay there again. There's also a closet full of toys which the kids loved.
Thank you Heather for your positive review. I am glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. I pride myself on offering a family and kid-friendly home with many toys, games and books for kids as well as security gates, high chairs, a pack-n-play, outlet covers, security locks for cabinets, etc.
Charming House in North Portland
We held a ladies retreat in this charming little Portland house and loved it! There was plenty of space, amenities, and the location was wonderful. We had a fabulous time and the house made family time cozy and fun. Thanks Gary for your hospitality.
Perfect, wonderful beautiful !!
Such a wonderful home, great stay for our large group
Warm and inviting home, and a GREAT host.
Gary was a great communicator, from the time we first booked, through the time we were in his home, through check out. He allowed our family to function independently, while just a text message away to fill any need.
Thank you Carol for your positive review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. It was truly a pleasure having you and your friends. I hope to have you again during your next visit to Portland.
Great group gathering
Home was incredibly well stocked, organized and clean. Beautiful house with a spacious layout. I was initially unsure about having the home owner/manager Gary down below... as we didn't want to disturb him. But he kept well to himself after the initial check-in. Gary was very easy to communicate with, always happy to help and was very flexible. If we have a large group gathering in Portland again, we would definitely rent out his home! Beautiful neighborhood with Starbucks, Safeway and Walgreens right out your front door (1-2 blocks away)!
