Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I am an expat living in Beijing and I return to Portland in the summer. I've stayed at this amazing place 2 summers now and I just love it. It's the most comfortable vrbo I've stayed in. It has everything you need and is in the best location. You can walk to everything! Thank you!

Wonderful charming older home

  • 5 of 5

Quaint and charming vintage home in a great neighborhood. Cozy and comfortable. Great location for walking to shops and restaurants. Quiet and peaceful enough to just read a book and sip wine. Well appointed in kitchen, bath, and has comfortable beds. Great sunroom and back patio with bbq for relaxing. Only drawbacks are challenging parking and slight highway noise from the bedroom but not a big deal. Overall well worth it.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We do a lot of vrbo rentals and have accumulated a short list of rentals that we love to return to. Feathered Nest is definitely on that list. We always comment how such a perfect Home is on the rental list rather than a permanent residence. Additionally, the owners are incredibly responsive. We will be back!

We loved A Feathered Nest!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in A Feathered Nest along with another couple. From the moment we walked in, it felt like home--it was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Most importantly, the beds were very comfortable and we all slept like babies!

We loved the location and the neighborhood and the proximity to many good restaurants and shopping areas. Debbie and Robbie had left coffee and wine for us, which was thoughtful and much appreciated. We hope to return sometime soon.

So wonderful. It was the perfect place for our Girl's Weekend. Comfortable & well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

What a find!! We didn't want to leave. A beautiful house in a perfect location. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The home was beautifully decorated. The bed were so comfortable and the bathrooms were like being at a spa. Our favorite part of the house was the sun porch where we gathered every morning and evening. The location is amazing and a short walk from shopping, restaurants, coffee, groceries, and more. The Northwest Alphabet District is charming. The only issues we had were with the highway noise at night (solved with ear plugs) and the upstairs bedroom is very bright in the morning so unless you are a early riser a sleep mask might be something you would want to invest in.
