Here is a recent review for your viewing:

'My husband and I rented this lovely Victorian for the week of Thanksgiving so we could spend the holiday with our two sons. The kitchen was more than adequately supplied with pots/pans, dishes and all the necessary cook ware for eating in! We felt like we were staying in a 'home away from our home.' Much better than staying in a hotel or condo! Ken was easily accessible to answer any of our questions and made us feel welcome and comfortable in the house. We are planning on returning in May of 2015. Would definitely recommend this vacation rental.'

*Weekly pricing gives renters 7 nights for the price of 6.

Please notify the owner if you plan to have more than 2 cars at the house as parking is limited. Also, if you plan to have more than 8 people at the house for an event, please let the owner know. Hot tub closes at 10 PM.

About Ken Murray

I am the property owner, live on the premises and am a world traveler (photo from Brazil) and love to host fellow travelers. My apartment is above the house providing security and service to my renters. I can also provide information on sightseeing, restaurants, wine tours, yoga and dance studios and hiking and biking in Portland.

Ken Murray purchased this house in 2004

Why Ken Murray chose Portland

I bought this large property so I could live in this fine neighborhood and also rent to guests. The area is great for recreation, sightseeing and family visits.

What makes this house unique

The Victorian has great access to downtown Portland while enjoying the quiet of a pretty neighborhood. The gardens, decks, hot tub and barbecue are enjoyable much of the year. Access to 3 freeways and other major avenues make sightseeing easy. Hillsdale also has its own Farmers Market.

This lovely property was everything we hoped for.

This is the first time renting a vacation house and we were not disappointed. We would definitely recommend this lovely property to anyone looking for a rental in Portland. It was comfortable, convenient and everything we thought it would be. Ken, the owner, was very gracious.

Great Portland location

  • 4 of 5

We had a perfect spot to explore and stay close to family. If we were there longer we would have enjoyed the possibility of a family gathering. It is nice to know you can rent the separate apartment above for individuals or a larger group.

Comfortable Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Victorian House. It was very comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked (with supplies, not food of course). The living room is very nice with plenty of seating. The bedrooms were also quite nice with comfortable mattresses. There is a washing machine available. There is also outside seating and a beautiful garden in front of the house. The location of this house is great, close to many things but not in a high traffic area. We hope to return.

Elegant, clean, very accomodating

  • 4 of 5

Being 15 minutes from Portland, 25 minutes from Oregon City/West Linn, 40 minutes from the heauty of the Columbia River Gorge/Multnomah Falls made it an ideal location near many sites. Five minutes upon our initial arrival, Ken greeted us like we were friends having a reunion. He took us around the house explaining the accomodations available to us. The beauty, roominess, and cleanliness of the residence made us feel very comfortable. We would definately come back here in a heartbeat, and recommend this place to anyone. Ken and his residence made our family vacation one we will never forget
