House with Character in a Perfect Location. Highly Recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at Debbie's place in NW Portland! We loved the decor, the location, the cleanliness and the fun character of her craftsman home. The pictures don't do the units justice as they are even more beautiful and spacious in person. Thanks for providing the perfect house for our ladies' getaway!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were meeting our kids from Anchorage and were looking for a "nest" to share with them. Debbie's Nest was perfect. All the comforts of home. We were greeted with a welcoming bottle of wine. Everything you thought of - she thought of too. We didn't make use of the well equipped kitchen but did use the suggestions for restaurants. And we could walk to all of them.

We hope to stay again. Maybe for some Oregon winery touring.

Great comfort!

Great location!

Great Place - Will visit again

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and well setup for the visitor. Lacked nothing!

My only caveat is not about the house it's the drive from Vancouver Canada to Portland.

The traffic in on I5 through Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia area is the worst I've ever seen and I've been stuck in some very good traffic jams.

(New York, LA, Toronto) Took 5 hours to go 70 miles! (average 14 mph)

No accidents, no major construction, just volume of traffic. Bumper to bumper, stop and go...

Even the Sunday return trip was bad so it's not just a rush hour issue.

Too many cars, not enough road.

Fly don't drive!

PERFECT stay at both properties! A wedding celebration!

  • 5 of 5

The previous reviews are very accurate. Both properties are perfect. I had rented the dog friendly lower unit almost one year before my son's Portland wedding. I sent the information on the top unit to my Washington DC family and they jumped on it. I have rented properties in the past but these properties are perfectly maintained.

I particularly loved the Master in our unit with an amazing closet and bathroom with soaking tub and shower. It was extremely relaxing for my pre wedding prep!

The units are well stocked with everything you could think of....ziplock bags, laundry detergent. Gourmet kitchen which came in very useful for our post wedding BBQ. We enjoyed cooking a prime rib on the grill! We had such a wonderful trip. Really walkable to everything. Enjoyed Saturday market, restaurants and breweries in the Pearl.

We walked to the Rose Garden three times, enjoyed ice cream at Salt and Straw, visited the Mississippi neighborhood. Took the opportunity to explore areas in Portland we had not visited before. We will absolutely be renting this property again! LOVED IT! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! WIne and coffee!!!

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.
