Recent Reviews:

"This is the best equipped house I have ever rented, in 40 years."


** This home has a Type B Accessory Short Term permit which is now required for 3-to-5-bedroom vacation rentals per a recent change in the Short Term Housing Law in Portland. If you are checking other vacation rentals, be sure to ask the owner if they have this permit which is required to operate legally under the new law in the city (and this is an indicator for guaranteeing your reservation).**

You have access to the main and upper levels of the home as well as the laundry room on the lower level.

I can have as much interaction with guests as you are comfortable with since I live in this home. I can be available to check in and then leave you to do as you wish. I am also more than willing to socialize, if time allows. Whatever your comfort level may be I am willing to accommodate.

It is a wonderful walking neighborhood with many older historic homes and friendly residents. Peninsula Park (just six blocks west of the home) is just a hint of what’s blooming in the Piedmont neighborhood, bordered by Interstate 5, Northeast Columbia Boulevard, Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and North Ainsworth Street. It’s a neighborhood in transition, with new affordable home developments being built, older houses being remodeled, and the Interstate MAX light-rail line just a few blocks west. It’s a convenient commute to downtown Portland and just take minutes by car or public transportation.

The Piedmont subdivision was one of the early streetcar suburbs so when the Interstate MAX light-rail arrived in 2004, the neighborhood revisited its past.

Peninsula Park was originally the site of Liverpool Liz’s Place, a roadhouse and horse-racing track. The 16-acre plot of land was purchased by the city in 1909 and reconfigured as a grand city park by noted architects Ellis Lawrence and Ormond Bean. The park, its Italian-style community center, and rose gardens, opened to the public in 1913. The rose gardens were a big hit, drawing 300,000 visitors in their first year. The octagonal bandstand overlooking the rose garden was constructed in 1913. It was used for World War I patriotic demonstrations and is now the site for many summer weddings and concerts. This wonderful gazebo-like structure is a National Heritage historical structure and was designated a Portland Historic Landmark in 1973. It is the last of its kind in Portland.

It is 1/2 block from public transit providing easy access to downtown or the Max light rail system. It is 10 minutes from the airport. Free on-street parking is provided as well as two off-street spots.

No smoking or vaping in the home. No drinking under age 21 (Oregon law).
Late checkout fee is half the nightly rate or $50 per hour, whichever is greater.
