About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in Colorful & Historic Urban Oasis

Welcome to Shift Vacation Rental’s Mississippi District location! We have a stunning urban oasis; a few minutes walk from the fun and trendy N Mississippi District. This newly revived area has become one of the hippest places to shop, dine and drink. The street is lined with chic foodie restaurants, live music venues, and a bevy of bars, boutiques and brewpubs. Colorful buildings line the main thoroughfare of Mississippi, while historic and charming residential neighborhoods surround the area.

This fully remodeled home will be beyond your expectations. Flooded with light and handmade touches this house is an amazing transformation of a 1920's bungalow. The house was remodeled for use as a vacation rental and set up perfectly for people to gather and relax in. As you enter natural light from windows and white clapboard wood surround, makes you feel like you've entered a sweet farmhouse. The open floor plan captures the kitchen, living room and dining room perfect for family and friends to gather in. The house is filled with artistic designer touches, reclaimed wood, and incredible reuse ideas. Everything you need from a coffee grinder and maker to get your morning going, to cookie sheets, to blenders are all provided for you.

You enter the property looking at the sweetest front porch where rocking chairs create an ideal spot for a cup of coffee and people watching. The outside also boasts a dining table for 8, a four square court that entertains adults and kids, and multiple sitting areas.

Next you enter the house, with an open floor plan for the living, dining, and kitchen. The skylights let light flood in, the white horizontal wood on the walls nods to farmhouse nostalgia, and the custom furniture is beautifully executed.

The kitchen is stocked with plates, glasses, etc to serve a big family dinner at the gorgeous wood dining table. It is stocked with everything from toaster, microwave, ice maker, blender, good knives, you name it. But, you may not even want to cook as you are within a few minutes walk from some of Portland's finest eateries.

The first floor has 2 bedrooms, and one full bathroom. One bedroom has a queen bed, while the other has a double down/twin up bunk bed. The bathroom has a beautifully tiled shower, with large rain shower head.

Walk downstairs and you enter into another entertaining area, with TV, games, and cozy seating area. A perfect spot to send the kids to play while the adults hang upstairs. Downstairs also has 2 bedrooms each with a queen bed. There is also a full bathroom with beautiful tile and a double shower head!

There is a parking spot in the lot next door, and plenty of free street parking should you need more.

The house sits on a lot with another vacation rental, (5 bed-3 bath, Stunning Modern Home in Trendy & Hip Mississippi District rent both for larger groups, workshops, reunions!) If you need more rentals we also have a duplex, a 5 minute drive away please look at:

About Michelle Ruber

We are a husband and wife team who love to travel, mostly on bicycles, and love designing houses. We put both of those passions together with the two businesses we own. Encircle Design and Build is our home remodeling side, where we mainly focus on kitchens, bathrooms, and whole house remodels. We started Shift Vacation Rentals with our duplex on Alberta Street. When we were getting married we looked for a house that could accommodate all of our family members and couldn't find anything. This experience sprouted our idea to create well-designed, modern, artistic lodging for people coming to Portland in our favorite neighborhoods. We adore Portland and think its, if not the, then one of the best cities in the USA. We are excited to share our home and neighborhood with you as it offers so much. In the house there is a list of recommendations of what to do and see in PDX!

Michelle Ruber purchased this house in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was perfect; clean, warm, well-appointed. We were so happy to enter and feel right at home. Everything we could have wanted was thought of - even an iphone charger with an adapter for the most recent model! So great. Beds were comfortable, sheets were high quality, towels were plush, decor was beautiful. The house is in an excellent location with lots of bars and restaurants and shops within blocks. We had a terrific time and will definitely want to come back again. Thank you!

This place was perfect

  • 5 of 5

This location had everything we needed and more.

For starters, there was a hand written note welcoming us to the house....such a nice touch. The house also had so much character with great decor giving the place a warm feel. Even the towels that they provided we soft a fluffy (my wife’s favorite thing). We had plenty of sleeping and lounging space for the eight of us that stayed as well.

The area was perfect! There is a coffee shop 1 block away, a taco truck 50 yards away, a market a few blocks away, and several bars and restaurants all within walking distance. This street has something for everyone!

When we come back to Portland, this is the only house I will consider...not to mention it was only a 20 Uber to and from the Airport.

Cool Space

  • 5 of 5

Nice and well presented old refurbed house with plenty of modern touches and a light and surprisingly airy, good-sized, 1st floor living area. We were 4 adults and found the space just fine. Location is great and right by some great entertainment spots.

Great house! Amazing location!

This house was perfect for our girls weekend! The location was perfect, Mississippi Ave is a super fun spot to hang out, and it was around a 10-15 dollar uber ride to get anywhere else!

Owner's Response: Valerie thank you! Group trips was our goal when designing and building this space. We worked to have an open concept living, dining, and kitchen so everyone could hang out. And we also wanted additional spaces where people could escape for a quiet moment- like the den or front porch. Please do stay with us again! Thank you, Michelle

Owner's Response: Thanks Mary for the kind review. We do love the location. It is super easy to walk anywhere if you want to stay in Mississippi District, a local hip neighborhood- or we are only 10 minutes from downtown, the Pearl District, and the Zoo. Please do stay with us again! Best, Michelle

Hosted a bachelorette party here and it was a blast! Great neighborhood with so much to do, close to downtown, driving distance to Willamette Valley for vineyard tour. There was a very small issue, but it got taken care of right away with no questions asked! Highly recommend staying here! Can't wait to go back 😍

Owner's Response: Hello Michelle! Thanks for the lovely review. We are so thrilled that all the ladies had a wonderful time. It is our goal to provide an exceptionally clean, cool, and well presented house so that our guests can focus on having a great time with one another. I am so happy you went out the the vineyards. We have great relationships with so many of those talented folks, so let me know next time you stay and I will get some free tasting passes your way! Cheers, Michelle

Five-night stay notice: Generally, when a reservation request includes a weekend, we will require a five-night stay. A possible exception to this is when the dates fall between existing bookings or the requested dates are coming up soon. This five-night requirement will vary depending upon our calendar and booking load. Generally, when booking during low season well in advance or during high season (holidays and summer), we will most likely ask for five-nights minimum. If uncertain if this will apply to your request, please ask! We do not always have the five-night minimum requirement automatically set up in our calendars, which is why some reservation requests will not be accepted. We apologize for any inconvenience!

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
