The Perfect Place in Portland Vacation Rental

Portland's Finest Vacation Rental and Unfurnished Places to Stay

Welcome to Perfect Places in Portland! We began in 2012 with our Portland vacation rental in the Portland’s Hawthorne District neighborhood and now offer:
  • Our newest Portland vacation rental in the Portland’s Sellwood neighborhood.
  • Our 3 bedroom 2 and a half bath in Portland’s Hawthorne District as an unfurnished rental home for longer term rentals
With our addition of the condo we are continuing our tradition of providing the very best Portland rental and vacation rental housing experience available. Both locations offer amazing walkability, with excellent proximity to Food Carts, Restaurants, Local Shopping and Mass Transit, allowing you to enjoy Portland at its finest.

Why We Love Sellwood

Coffee is literally 30 seconds away by foot! So stroll over to Either/Or on 13th and grab yourself one of the best espresso flights ever or just a solid cup a joe. Make sure to get a nosh to go with whatever you chose, because they are yummy!

The Springwater Corridor which 21 miles of the 40 mile loop around Portland is an amazing walk along the river and wetlands. After coffee, just take to the few steps back to SE Umatilla and head west which dead ends at the trail. If you like to bike, but did not bring your wheels, no problem! Just head over Sellwood Cycle (they rent by the day) a few blocks north or the The Bike Commuter (this shop rents by the hour) 5 blocks east and pick up your wheels!

Finally, what Sellwood is perhaps best know for the Antique/Indie Store Scene! We love to shop a bit then stop for a bite, shop a bit more, you know the drill. Also do not forget to check out the Homestead Store, this is an absolute kick!

Why We Love Hawthorne

Because we are less than a five minute walk to a Portland Icon, the Division Street Stumptown Coffee, the store that started the coffee revolution in Portland way back in 1999.

Food, Food, and more Food! We absolutely love Petite Provence, one of our favorite bakery and breakfast places. Lets not forgot the Food Cart scene with the a la cart pod at 50th (blocks away), the Good Food Here pod about a mile away, and the newest pod in the Southeast, Tidbit. Of course we cannot leave out Brick and Mortar icons like the amazing award winning Pok Pok, taco mecca ¿por que no? and an rockin Italian place called 3 doors down.

The pursuit of all things Mid Century Vintage! While we have no more space in our places, we love browsing and perhaps finding that perfect piece to "upgrade" something we already have. We never leave Portland, without spending time at Hawthorne Vintage, Red Snapper right next store and Asylum a little farther down the block.
