A stunning house in a beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

With a family of four, I always try to find great homes to stay in while on vacation. This was a perfect choice. The home is beautiful with plenty of room, the neighborhood is wonderful with restaurants, the location is central, and the owners were extremely helpful. You won't go wrong with this home.

Always top notch!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here probably ten or more times. We love it, love it, love it! It is consistently clean, well-stocked, and comforting. The walkability is great; we never get in the car (well, maybe for groceries, but even then City Market is so close and so awesome we love to go every day!). Lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance. If you are a big group, you can also rent the upstairs unit; we have done that and it is really great because everyone can have lots of space but still be together. Debbie, the owner, is great and very attentive to any needs (but doesn't bother you if you are doing fine!). We have stayed in lots of VRBOs around Portland, and this one is hands down, the best of the best.

A wonderful apartment for a great visit to NW Portland

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was charming, clean and comfortable. Our family enjoyed cooking in the well supplied kitchen and eating together in the dining room. The bed linens were wonderful and beds very comfortable. Lots of hot water and fluffy towels in the bathrooms. The apartment is situated on a quiet street in NW Portland, within an easy walk of the resturants and shops of town. We loved this place and all enjoyed our time there.

A wonderful home to stay in during visit to Portland

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in A Feathered Nest during our vacation in Portland during Thanksgiving week. We had a wonderful vacation made special by the lovely home we booked. We were so impressed by the cleanliness and eye for detail provided for our comfort. The home is beautiful and inviting. Deb checked in with us to be sure we were comfortable and see if we had any questions. I have never had such a welcoming experience. We walked all over Portland and didn't even rent a car. I am looking forward to staying at the nest in the future.

Perfect In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We started out as a group of three, and we were able to add another person for a family reunion. This flexibility was worth a lot, as we didn't know for sure if the fourth was coming until a few weeks before departure. Communication with Debbie was fantastic. The house looked great in the photos, but it was even better in person. It really was the perfect fit for us. Everything that you could possibly think of was included (and easy to locate). It is obvious that a lot of thought and effort has gone into making this place comfortable for travelers. Everything was spotlessly clean and in working order. We loved the location -- easy walking distance to NW 21st & 23rd streets, the Pearl District, and public transportation (& bike share). Our security deposit was promptly refunded. Highly, highly recommend this beautiful and comfortable property.
