5 Real Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths and 7 Real Beds. Best location in city for visitor
I grew up in the area and Kara emigrated from California in the 90s. We live in SW Portland close by and our office is not too far off in Lake Oswego. Kara is a Family Medicine doctor in private practice and I help run her very busy clinic. She has been practicing in the community for over 20 years and I have been a mortgage banker for 20 years. We have 3 children with one in Med School and one in Preschool. We race bicycles, cross train in any way we can including kayaking, skiing, riking (a combo run/hike sport we created because hiking was just too slow much to the chagrin of our kids!). Kara is a photographer and also paints, makes jewelry and can't wait to get a pottery wheel someday. She supports local artists any way she can and is an avid collector of modern and vintage artwork. I am a woodworker, lather and burgeoning chef. We are avid herb and vegetable gardeners, love food, great wine, music and always look forward to helping guests with restaurant selections. We know the region well and have our favorite excursions and are available for guidance! We have used VRBO extensively for our travels in the US and all over Europe and hope our experiences help make yours a wonderful one! We are excited to share this lovely home with you! James

Why James chose Metzger
We are hoping to share our love of the Northwest and make some new friends by opening our Portland Oak Street home. We purchased the home for Kara's mother but cold feet have kept Mom in California for now. We love the house too much to sell! It has recently been remodeled from the studs out and is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family road trip with a big crew. If you have a wedding in the area, this is a great place for multiple generations to stay, feel part of a large family and celebrate together!
What makes this House unique
Easy access to the two main freeways makes this the perfect location for your visit and sight seeing. We often receive compliments how clean we keep the house for visitors and really enjoy meeting our guests.

This is a nice home for families with older relatives. Our three 70+ year old guests were quite comfortable with the two rooms and bathrooms available on the main floor.
The kitchen is well appointed with dishes and a nice gas range.
We (5 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed here while in Portland for a family wedding. It's a great house, and we particularly liked the layout. The teenagers could hang out in the downstairs den while the adults were upstairs in the living room. Also, this house had 3 bathrooms, which seemed hard to find in the area for a 4-bedroom house. The location is convenient with a grocery store nearby and quick interstate access, and the neighborhood is quiet. The owner communicates quickly. Overall, I highly recommend this property!
Easy to find and get around town. Super clean with comfy beds.
Our first VRBO. The platform and the host made everything super easy.
Very clean, well-stocked, spacious house
Great house for a large group. Open floor plan upstairs with large kitchen and living room seating and dining table to accommodate 8. Large family room and children’s play area downstairs. Owner was very pleasant. Only issues were downstairs bedrooms a bit cold (plenty of blankets provided) and one burner on grill is broken.
Best place in Metzger
We loved this house, not only because it was stocked with all of our needs, but it was clean, organized & SUCH a fun place for gathering with out of state family members.
Very comfortable house in convenient location
Beds are cozy, house is spotless and very convenient location for our trip visiting Portland.
Anything you could possibly want is less than 15 minute drive. The state's largest Mall, Washington Square, is only a mile away. The access to freeway is under a mile away. Great safe neighborhood that is 1 mile from Costco, 7 theater cinema and walking distance to a brand new Fred Meyers grocery. Metzger is the hidden gem of Portland. It is minutes from everything Portland has to offer and easy access to the freeways that will take you to the splendid destinations just outside the city.
