About the property

1 bedroom queen pillowtop, 1 hideabed full, 1 bathroom w/shower (no tub).Sleep 3

Stay a month or more In our centrally located cozy & freshly updated condo. Located on the second floor looking toward Portland's West Hills in a newer building, this sunny corner unit is near grocery, streetcar, museums, dining, PSU and the South Park Blocks with a Farmer’s Market 2 x week. Just down the street is the Performing Arts Center. The streetcar will take you in a minute to the trendy Pearl District, to Riverplace Marina, or up to Nob Hill on NW 23rd for boutique shopping.

Fine & casual dining is all over downtown Portland! One of the newer areas is the West End, between SW 10th & 13th Avenues with new dining, shopping & boutiques--only 4-5 blocks away. Remember that when it’s time to relax from a day of touring, your comfy condo will be waiting.

We rent only a month or more. Homeaway recently changed its method for owners to list their rates, and it makes it difficult for us to communicate our rates & flexibility. Please email us with any questions.

Fully Equipped Kitchen: Our kitchen has all the features for full time cooking. You'll find a blender, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, coffee grinder, pans, dishes, and glassware including wine glasses. A convenient kitchen island is topped with mosaic tile, and has 2 bar stools. We'll even provide basic items such as salt, pepper, sugar, ketchup, mustard, & spices to get you started.

Living Area: Separated from the kitchen by the island, the comfy living room has a red leather couch (full hideabed) & hassocks, a classic modern style leather recliner. There's a sleek new media unit for storage, and for the new 32' flat screen TV with instant Netflix, and a dvd player.

The French Doors open to the comfy queen size pillow top bed. Adjacent is a large closet system with drawers & shelves. There's also a washer/dryer in the condo, plus a tile-floor bath with a shower with glass door.

Other Portland Info: Our condo is located on the edge of Portland's designated Cultural & University District. This is an urban setting with a diverse mix of older and newer buildings and condo's. The South Portland Park Blocks run through the area and are 3 blocks from the condo. Along the Park Blocks is Portland State University, several turn of the century European style churches, the Portland Art Museum, The Oregon Historical Museum, the Performing Arts Center, and the back of the home of the Portland Symphony, the Schnitzer Concert Hall. The colorful Portland streetcars are 1 and 2 blocks away from the condo, and will take you down to the Willamette River promenades, through the hip Pearl District, and up to Portland's Nob Hill area on NW 23rd Avenue.

One of the owners is a licensed Oregon real estate agent--she must let you know that. A side benefit is that Sharon is exceptionally knowledgeable about the Portland area, and more than willing to answer any questions and help to orient you to our city.

About Tracy Francis

We purchased this condo in about 2004. We love meeting people from all over the world, so it has been fun hosting it. We've lived in Portland for many years, and are amazed at the lively city it has become. We're delighted to offer tips on the city, from dining to sight seeing.

Why Tracy Francis chose Portland

Very convenient location with the streetcar on the corner and the university and museums only blocks away. Our condo is light filled and on the back of the building. And we were eager to own a tiny piece of downtown property, since we love downtown Portland.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything has worked out very well. You and your husband did a very good job putting this condo together.

Cozy condo centrally located

  • 4 of 5

You couldn't ask for a better host than Sharon. She was very accommodating, easy to reach, and overall a warm and wonderful woman. She made me feel very at home during my moth stay in Portland.

The condo was the perfect home base for exploring all that Portland has to offer — seven minutes to Heart Coffee in the Pearl, 10 minutes to a hike with views of the city and Mt. Hood in Forest Park, 35 minutes to Multnomah Falls in the gorge. Tons of great restaurants only minutes from the unit. Really a great location.

The space itself shows a few signs of being well used, but is cozy, clean, and bright, with conveniences like a washer/ dryer, a full kitchen, and a nice-size bathroom. A great corner unit with lots of windows. As with anyplace downtown, the homeless population of Portland is evident. That said, the apartment felt very safe, and I didn't have any problem using street parking in front of the building during the evenings. If you don't plan to bring a vehicle, Portland transportation is excellent, and there are several stations within a block or two of the unit. Several groceries within easy walking/ driving distance.

If you're looking for a centrally located home-base, or are spending a significant amount of time downtown, this is the perfect spot.

Grateful to Sharon for her hospitality.

Cozy Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was in a great location-easy access to the Max, streetcar, restaurants, etc. The condo was also clean and a comfortable size for my husband and I during our one week stay. The owner was very nice and very accommodating to us during our stay. She also also answered our emails inquiries very quickly. We would stay here again if we went back to Portland.

convenient, cozy and clean

  • 4 of 5

The condo was just as described, and perfect for our needs. Very convenient grocery shopping and sights. We spent days exploring the downtown on foot, took in the rose garden, found a movie theater nearby when it was raining too hard to play outside, and enjoyed lots of good food. Sharon accommodated our arrival and departure times, for which we were very grateful. We will definitely recommend this to friends and family, and hope to return.

Owner's Response: Hi Jean, We're so glad you enjoyed your Portland stay. Hopefully for your next visit it will be more sunny! So glad you made it to the Rose Garden, which to me symbolizes much of what has made Portland a unique city. Hope you can return soon! Thank you, Tony and Sharon

Great Value for Money!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo is well located, comfortable, clean, and perfect for a city getaway. For the 4 nights we spent there, we really felt like we lived in Portland. There is a nice open kitchen/living area with everything we needed to cook a few meals (a very silly thing to do since there is so much good food to be had in Portland!). The bathroom is clean and good-sized, The bedroom is cozy, but really, what more do you need than a comfy bed, a closet, and a few shelves for your belongings? This place has all that - plus a nice window too. Now, this condo is in a city, and with that comes some amount of street noise, so bring earplugs if you are really sensitive to that (we didn't need them and slept quite well). This place even has a washer/dryer, which was very convenient to have and really made us feel like we were at home. There is a Safeway just down the street, the art museum just past that, and between walking and the fantastic public transportation system you can easily get anywhere in Portland from this home-away-from-home. We like to walk, and were able to easily walk to the Pearl District, and the waterfront, shops, and restaurants (or should I say, food carts?!). Sharon was kind and helpful every step of the way, and even met us and showed us around when we arrived. Oh, did I mention they offer convenient parking too, at a very reasonable rate? Really, there is nothing not to like about this place, it is fantastic and we would stay here again if we get a chance, and will definitely recommend it to friends. We had a wonderful time here exploring Portland for the first time.

Owner's Response: Hi Pam, We are so happy that you enjoyed your Portland visit! Maybe you'll put Portland on your annual vacation list! More and more guests report enjoying Portland's nearly countless food carts. Maybe your favorite cart will grow into a restaurant by your next visit--that seems to be the pattern! Thanks for taking good care of our little condo! Tony and Sharon

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great! Convenient location, cute decor and wonderful owner. We had a very early arrival time and late departure and Sharon was able to accomodate both, which we greatly appreciated as we did not want to lug around our bags. We would definitely stay here again for our next trip.

Sharon, thank you so much for your hospitality!

Car: not necessary

You’ll love Portland with its lively downtown, rivers, hills, and proximity to the beach and the mountain--only 90 minutes to each! Known for its breweries, fine & innovative dining, nearby wineries, & live theatre, Portland offers something for all. Rent bikes, go hiking, wander along the river walkway--you won’t want to leave! You don’t even need to rent a car. Grab MAX at the airport (light rail) into city center, where you’ll ride free on streetcars and lightrail. Visit trendy Pearl District restaurants, watch boats at Riverplace, or scoot up to Knob Hill for boutique shopping--all on the streetcar!

Other Activities: hiking,
