We reserved this house to attend a conference at the Convention Center. We were only 4 people, and the place would be comfortable for many more, kids included- but for us it was perfect. Very comfortable bedrooms, sitting areas, and kitchen/dining. It is appointed for large groups, and we hosted a small gathering and everyone loved the house. Gary was helpful and very accommodating when our plans changed and we arrived a day ahead of schedule. We were able to take the bus to convention center when needed, or it's a 10 minute drive. Great local restaurants and easy shopping. I'd recommend this for any family or friends gathering in Portland.
We had a large family gathering in Portland and needed a place for some of us to stay and have dinner and gathering for a large group. The house was fully equipped to meet our needs. Gary was very helpful and hospitable. Evrybody enjoyed the house and the location. I highly recommend this house and will go back to it next time we need a large house in Portland.
We booked this property to host a college graduation dinner / party for our large extended family and friends; keeping our fingers crossed it would accommodate our guest's from seven months old to eighty. Our expectations were exceeded and the evening was a huge success. Everyone felt they were home and relaxed. If you want to stay in a home while on vacation - this is the one! Gary was always readily available to answer questions before, during and at the end of stay. Forever grateful.
We had a fabulous stay at the Piedmont guest house. We were in town for our son's art show and needed a place that could accomodate 12 people, including an infant, toddler and an elderly great-grandmother not steady on her feet. This house perfectly met all our requirements. It was absolutely spotless to start with; if only we had your housekeeper! The house came fully equipped with high chair, booster seat, pack-n-play, wi-fi, a huge HD TV (a must for the men in our group), a fully functional kitchen, and a Starbucks less than 1/8 mile away! We even had reason to use the washer and dryer, since babies can be really messy. Throughout our stay, Gary was completely available and immediately answered my questions. I know the key to our successful family reunion was having this great house as our headquarters. Thank you again, Gary, for your hospitality!
it was a really nice and convenient stay. This house is a charming place, nice and in a well-kept condition. Living- and bathrooms. kitchen, bed rooms - all in a really good shape. For - Business purposes: Internet and communication services are offered and you have a good broadband connection. - Familys: Everything you need is in Walking distance - Wallgreens, Grocery store (Safeway), Starbucks - max. 2-3 min walk The public Transport, Bus line no. 6, starts right in front of the Starbucks and needs 20-30 minutes to the City or interchange to the City tram (at the convention Center) - cost: US$2,50 for 2 hours or US$5 whole day ticket (cheap and convenient) What else: no matter what you want to do, start with Walking around, right a bicycle or with the public Transport - you can do everything and the owner is always availabe to give an advice or recommendations what to do. It was a pleasure and again the first choice when I am back in Portland, Thank you
Great host! The house was perfect for our needs- it is extremely well stocked and has everything that you need. The wine tasting vouchers were also an awesome perk- they were beautiful vineyards with great wine. I would definately recommend this place.
This house was perfect. My daughter was getting married and we had people coming in from out of town. Great location close to airport, Safeway, Starbucks short drive to other places. Owner was very helpful. Lovely home lots of room and very well equipped. We had 10 people staying. I would highly recommend this house.
The house was the perfect place for our group of 9, who were in town for the Portland Marathon. Gary was very helpful, suggesting a place for dinner (Amalfi's), which had delicious food. He also notified us as soon as the house was ready, so we could do an early check-in. The house had everything we needed for our weekend and was just a few minutes away from downtown.
We had a great time staying at this property. It was spacious and clean and very well equipped in every way. Gary made us feel welcome and comfortable. The location is awesome too, close to the airport and a short drive to everything. Also a quick walk to grocery stores, Starbucks and one of Portland's amazing rose gardens. We were traveling with our two-year old and the place was perfect for the family...came complete with toys, bath toys, highchair and an organ in the living room that she was crazy about. We will definitely try to stay here again next time we are in Portland.
We had a great time in Portland! Gary was an excellent host and welcomed us into his house graciously. This was a perfect spot for our group of 7 as it was very close to a grocery store and only a 10 min. drive to the heart of down town. There were many other places near by that we wish we had a chance to visit. I would stay here again if I were visiting Portland with a large group. Thanks Gary.
Our family stayed here in the summer for a wedding. We were 8 adults and two kids and we had a great time. The house was very clean, and the owner went out of his way to make sure our kids had a safe visit, and was very helpful when it came to suggestions in the area.
My family (5 adults and one child) stayed for a week in Portland and this house was perfect for us. It was very spacious and very comfortable. The weather was great, but we were very happy to have the A/C. Gary was wonderful to us and made sure we had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the appliances, spices, etc., there were more than enough towels and linens, and the house was spotless. The house is also very convenient and was a short car ride to all of our activities, restaurants, etc. We highly recommend this property and Portland. It's a wonderful city to visit.
Great house, clean, well maintained and stocked w/ everything you would need. Beds very comfy. get location for quick access to Portland metro yet in a very quiet neighborhood. Gary was our host and was very accommodating to our needs!
We are still glowing from our wonderful 5 day stay at this beautiful NE Portland rental. It was the perfect location for family to gather to celebrate our son's wedding and family brunch the following day. Each room was beautifully decorated, their was ample space, and the home, particularly the kitchen, was well appointed with everything we could possibly need. Everyone in our large party commented how much they appreciated that. (Ample luxury towels, dinner setting for 50, plenty of sheets, super stocked kitchen with food and spices.) Local stores were only a block away, and a beautiful park with rose garden just an 8 block walk, all situated in a quiet neighborhood. We sat out on the porch well past dark playing games provided by our host. We have stayed at many B&B's and rented VRBO properties before, but without a doubt this was our best experience. Out host, Gary, could not have been more pleasant, thoughtful, or accommodating. I would recommend this lovely home to anyone looking for a rental in North Portland.
Gary was so helpful in planning our stay. The house was perfect for our family. We could all be together. We hosted a rehearsal dinner and the house was stocked with all the servingware we needed and the morning of the wedding all the girls could be together for hair and makeup. The rose garden was within walking distance, as was the grocery store. All the downtown attractions were a quick drive away. I highly recommend this vacation rental.
Owner Response: Thank you for your stay. I am glad the home met your expectations. With place settings for 50 guests the home has hosted events for up to 45 guests. Glad to hear you visited Peninsula Park Rose Garden, the first rose garden in Portland which is within eight blocks.
A group of us drove in and stayed here for a few days in May. The house itself is lovely, and Gary was very helpful and courteous. Definitely would stay here again if we were in the area.
We can't express how much we enjoyed our stay in the Portland area. The Piedmont Guesthouse was all we could have hoped for in convenience and charm. We were impressed by all the thoughtful details provided for our stay: luscious towels, comfortable sitting area and a fully equipped kitchen. The location of the Guesthouse was convenient for our needs and our host, Gary, was able to recommend numerous local establishments for dining /attractions. We can't wait to return to Portland and stay at the Piedmont Guesthouse.
We had a family gathering and bridal shower at this wonderful home.It was so well stocked from towels to place setting dishes etc.Gary brought out extra chairs, folding tables, linens.We were able to entertain 25+ for our shower with plenty of room.Gary walked us through the house and explained how everything works. He goes out of his way to accommodate anything we needed. This house was perfect for our stay! Thank you!
Owner Response: Thank you Margaret for your excellent review. i am glad you had a good time at hy home. The home has place settings for 50, three extra tables with tablecloths and a total of 12 comfortable padded chairs.
We recently stayed two nights to celebrate my moms 50th birthday. The house was perfect and Gary was so willing to help and be accommodating, although we didn't need much because everything was perfect! The house was just what we were looking for and was so much better for our large group (9 ppl) than a hotel would have been. Thank you Gary for sharing, we will definitely stay again if a trip to portland comes up again.
10 of us stayed in this charming house to attend my son's Portland wedding. the house was just as shown in the photos. This is the best equipped house I have ever rented, in 40 years. Also it worked great for our European guests. They found starbucks in no time, and walked the neighborhood every day. We had a small 'brides brunch' on Friday and had more than enough dishes/wine glasses etc. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to friends and family. the owner, gary, is very accommodating as well.
We rented the house to attend a family wedding in the area. First off - Gary the owner is a gentleman and is easy going but very attentive. He would text me everyday to make sure our stay was comfortable. We enjoyed meeting Gary. While there were 10 of us who stayed in the house, Gary was gracious to allow us to host dinners there with a larger group of family and friends (~25). He also had enough plates and wine glasses for the entire party. The place is an older bungalow with modern accessories with a really homey feel. The location was perfect for us - being minutes from I-5 and a block to the Safeway and less than a block to the Starbucks. Would highly recommend this house. Thank you Gary!
We stayed here with multiple family members at the time of my daughter's wedding. Very clean, very comfortable home. Very accommodating owner. Would stay here again.
Our daughter was getting married and our family (9 - 4 year old to Grandmother and Grandfather) needed a place with lots of space so we could prepare for it. We could not have asked for anywhere more appropriate and fun. It was close to everything we needed - flowers, decorations- food- restaurants - transportation. We even made all the bouquets there with plenty of space to do it. The owner made us feel like we were at home. All the necessities were more then taken care of for us. Thank you for letting us stay there
We had a wonderful time at this property. There are 4 bedrooms which accomodated us nicely, and the house never felt crowded. Gary was a wonderful host and waiting for us on our late arrival of 10:30pm. I would recommend this property to a group who wants to stay together rather than getting hotel rooms.
I came to Portland for a family wedding, so this house had three generations under one roof, from age 68 to age 4. The house was big enough for all of us, it was comfortable, and Gary's description of the property was accurate. Peninsula Rose Park is close by, where my granddaughter spent hours having fun, and the wedding happened there as well. There is shopping within a block, and our cousins live between Gary’s house and the park, so it was a great location for us. Gary was helpful and easy going. He did the walk-through the night before we left, since we had a very early morning flight, and returned my damage deposit on the spot. A great house, very clean, great location for us, and Gray was helpful. If we have as many people staying with us on our next visit to Portland, we will rent this house again.
Owner Response: Thank you Peter for your positive review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you and your family and I am looking forward to your next stay.
This home is well located for exploring Portland. With a Safeway and a Starbucks right around the corner, this character home is an easy stay. Kitchen is well equipped. Owner, Gary, is extremely helpful, showing us how to get to our biking event with a map, and printing directions to Costco for us! Beautiful, treed street full of other character homes. We would recommend this home.
Owner Response: Thank you Carolyn for the positive review. I am glad you and your family had a good time and am looking forward to your next stay at my home.
A party of six (two couples, two singles), we chose the Rose City, Portland (in full June bloom), oto gather from around the world for a celebratory occasion and eight days exploring beautiful northern Oregon. The Portland Piedmont Guest House proved the perfect base. Four good size bedrooms, spacious living areas, well-equipped kitchen, WiFi and laundry facilities, made for comfort, convenience and homeliness. The nearby grocery store, a selection of restaurants in walking distance, and easy access downtown (we had a car) made eating out or in equally easy options. Portland Piedmont Guest House owner Gary is a fount of information about what's on in Portland, always on hand to assist and keen to ensure visitors' comfort. We loved Oregon, hope to revisit, and would very happily return to and recommend the delightful Portland Piedmont Guest House.
Gary was a super star. Unfortunately his property was booked for night we wanted to stay but was so great and calling to guide us in the area for alternate options to stay at. Wow, not everyone took the time to assist so I can only imagine his property is as kind as he was.
My family and I all settled into Piedmont House from Central Oregon, Tacoma, and Minnesota. I chose Piedmont House on a whim, and was so pleased to find it was exactly what my family and I needed for a great gathering. Gary, the owner, had excellent communication in the preceding weeks and days. He checked in with us throughout the four-day visit to ensure our comfort. We filled the four bedrooms—myself and my cousin (each in our thirties) took two bedrooms, and my parents and aunt (in their 60s) took the other bedrooms. It was an accessible house for all of our abilities. We were most pleased with the access to all things desirable! A kitchen fully stocked with utensils and lots of dishes. TVs in nearly all rooms, full laundry including iron, comfy furniture, and lots of character. I like a house that feels comfortable enough to live in—I liked the rustic wood floors, huge windows, and cozy beds. I baked cookies, cooked meals, and entertained my guests with ease at the house. My graduation happened to be a weekend when Portland was in full bloom—that was a lucky coincidence for us. The plants on the property were colorful, fragrant, and a great backdrop for my “cap and gown” photos. While visiting we had to travel to the airport (10 minutes away), Concordia University (5 minutes away), downtown (easy access), and to the coast (again, easy to get to). I loved the central location of the house. I was a bit concerned as I drove up MLK Jr. Blvd (graffiti, lots of loiterers), but was pleased to see the house was in an established neighborhood that felt safe, day and night. The grocery store one block away was great for my dad who loved to walk and get the odds and ends (groceries) we needed incidentally. My parents would argue that there’s nothing the house needed to be more perfect for our stay. My only complaint is that I filled our schedules so full that we didn’t get to spend enough time relaxing there. I was also bummed that my family loves TV so much, because the huge one in the living room had so many channels and captivated them all weekend. Highly recommended vacation rental! You’ll not be disappointed.
We had a large group to book at the last minute, and the homeowner scrambled to make sure we had everything we needed and answered all our questions and concerns about our stay. We felt very welcome, and he even set the dining room table for all 9 of us. The house was very clean and orderly inside and out. There were fresh towels and linens for all the guests including two Aerobeds which came in handy. Our time was mostly spent downtown and in Hawthorne, which was about a ten dollar can ride away, but there were some great restaurants and bars in the immediate area. The only thing I would add to the listing is that the owner lives on the premises. This turned out to be a non-issue because it's a completely different level of the house, but it was different than some of us had expected. Five out of five. Hands down the nicest VRBO property I've rented. Thanks again!
Owner Response: Thank you Joe for your wonderful review. It was truly a pleasure having your and your friends. I look forward to your next stay at my home. I have now moved off the premises.
I booked a weekend with about 12 friends at this Bungalow in Portland. When I booked the reservation, the owner Gary, immediately reached out to make sure everything was okay. He took care to ensure we had everything we needed. He offered advice on sights and events in Portland. I mentioned that I would like to grill and Gary even made sure his grill was ready to use. When we arrived Gary met our party and showed us all around the house. The house is in tremendous condition with tremendous amenities. It had four comfortable bedrooms and even a few aerobeds. The backyard was perfect for grilling and Gary provided lots of cookware and grill tools. The inside came with a wi-fi connection and Hi-Def TV's in every room. The porch provided a nice area to gather and enjoy the outside. The house is located in a nice neighborhood in NE Portland. It had easy access to downtown and the wealth of cultural activities available. I would highly recommend this to anyone, particularly large groups of people looking for a relaxing and exciting stay in Portland, Oregon.
Owner Response: Thank you very much Craig for your positive feedback. I really appreciate you taking the time to submit your comments. It was a pleasure having you and your friends at my place. I am looking forward to your next stay at my home.
The owner was very nice and it was a pleasant stay. He was attentive to our needs and helpful with ideas of the things to do in the area. The place was very clean with a few minor cleaning misses. There were a few code issues with the home, such as railings and disposal switch placement, mostly a concern if you go there with small children. (we pointed these out to the owner and he said he would take care of them) Also, the owner does live downstairs and there is no door to the stairs, which felt odd. So if you come with kids bring a baby gate. Again the owner is a great guy. and it is a nice home. Internet worked well, and he had an awesome supply of games for those who will.
Owner Response: I am working with a contractor to bring the upper stairs railings to code and move the placement of the garbage disposal switch. A door has also been installed off the kitchen in the stairway leading to the basement. I have now moved off the premises.
We stayed here for my birthday weekend and found the house to be the perfect combination of comfort and location. It has a nice front yard to relax in during the day and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Gary is a welcoming host.
