Perfect again!

  • 5 of 5

I hate to write such a good review as I want to keep this place waiting for us! But actually it really is 5 stars. The house is charming and immaculate. Debbie's attention to detail and travel advice is diligent. Location is fabulous. We have family in the area and would not visit without securing this lodging 1st!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this for two couples. Both rooms and bathrooms were excellent without too much difference in size. The entire house is well appointed with plenty of common areas for gathering. The location was superb - walking distance to the Pearl district, downtown, and all the restaurants on Nob Hill's 23rd St.

Charming, Confortable, Clean, and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Like any great diamond this home has all the 4 C's! The decor is quite charming with that old style character. Little bird figurines are found throughout the home, and are darling. The old wood floors, antiques, and architecture of this home bring you back to a simpler time. The beds and furnishings are very comfortable so you can easily rest after a long day of sightseeing. And this property is spotlessly clean.......from top to bottom. How refreshing to have such a fresh, clean home upon arrival. The location is convenient to so many shops, restaurants, and parks, and is in a quiet, quaint neighborhood.

Debbie is wonderful to work with, and a gracious hostess. Any question we had was promptly answered. You cannot beat the price of this property for what you get. Debbie has thought of everything from Ziploc bags, umbrellas, soaps and shampoos to every kitchen utensil under the sun! We highly recommend this beautiful home.

Great rental, Great location

  • 4 of 5

We wanted somewhere comfortable that was walkable into central Portland and this fit the bill perfectly. There is a small off-leash dog park within a few minutes walk, and also Trader Joe's and numerous other restaurants, bars and cafes within an easy stroll. The sun room is a wonderful place to hang out, eat breakfast and chat or read. The only negative was the Portland heatwave we stumbled into (100+ degrees two of the days), rendering the upstairs bedroom (no a/c upstairs) uncomfortably warm. The Parking right outside the house was also very convenient - we could easily have not driven the entire time we were there, as everything was so close by. You won't regret a walk to Ken's Artisan Bakery nearby, but for a truly wonderful experience, take a short drive to the St. Honoré Boulangerie (Bakery). Lastly, the "Frying Scotsman" fish and chips from a food truck near Powell's bookshop was excellent! All-in-all we had a great time.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Our group rented the Feathered Nest along with The Perch for a 5-night stay in May 2016. We had 11 members of our team staying between the two properties while we were in town for a competition. Both units were spacious and well equipped. We had everything we could possibly need for cooking and stayed very comfortably. The central location was easy to get to/from our events and we never had issues with parking. All the rooms were beautifully furnished and comfortable. Bathrooms and laundry were great. We highly recommend and hope to stay in this property again next year for our competition. Debbie was easy to work with! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
