ABOUT US: We are a family of 5 (kids 5, 8, 10) who recently returned from 1.5 years traveling abroad. We started our journey sailing from Nova Scotia to Grenada and then spent 6 months in Costa Rica. The kids wanted to settle down, so we decided to move to the coolest city in the USA – Portland, OR. We still have a deep desire to explore the World. We are looking to spend 1 month each year in a new international location. To limit our time away from the kids activities, we would like to schedule our time away during the holidays (December/early January). We are open to location for swap!

ABOUT OUR HOUSE:

Our home is in an ideal location for visiting Portland. We live in a typical turn of the (20th) century renovated old Portland home (built 1921) in a quiet residential neighborhood that is extremely accessible to all that Portland offers. You can choose to walk, bike, or bus to just about anywhere you want to go. It is 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Master bedroom has a king bed, guest bedroom has a queen, and upstairs is one large room (the whole finished attic space) with 3 double beds – this is where our kids sleep and play.

What I love about where I live
:
Our house is nestled between some lively, hip neighborhoods. We are 4 short blocks away from the upper Hawthorne neighborhood coffee shops, bread shop, breweries, and some of Portland’s favorite local restaurants. Within a 5 minute walk, you can reach the Hawthorne neighborhood, and Belmont food carts, yoga, pilates, coffee shops, etc. are 1 block away. Hawthorne has lots of fun vintage shops, gift shops, restaurants and food carts. You will be a short drive or bike ride to the Division Street area, home to well known restaurants such as Pok Pok and Salt and Straw ice cream, and more cool, local shops.
* 15 minute walk (or 5 minute bike ride) to two favorite inner city parks. Hike to the crater of the dormant volcano Mt Tabor, visit the children’s playground, or walk to the top of the mountain for stupendous views of the city. Or visit Laurelhurst and picnic near the duck pond.
* You don’t need a car to get around. Take the bus to get to downtown to explore the Pearl, downtown tax-free shopping, Powell’s (the worlds largest bookstore), or Forrest Park (the largest city park in the country!) Hop on a bike (use our bikes, use a the BIKETOWN bike share, or rent them from a nearby rental shop) and explore the city neighborhoods and bridges via a robust web of bike routes (we live on one of the bike routes)

ABOUT PORTLAND

If you’ve never thought of visiting Portland, Oregon, now is the time to start! We are nestled in the pacific northwest United States – about a 2 hour flight/10 hour drive north of San Francisco, and a 3 hour drive to Seattle. Portland is the place to go if you love nature, food, wine, handcrafted beers and spirits, arts and crafts, or just appreciate an approachable city that is easy to get around in and explore.
If you care to explore beyond this city, within 1.5 hours, you can drive to Mt Hood (winter/spring skiing, summer river/lake adventures, boundless nature opportunities), the northwestern coast, and many award winning Willamette Valley wineries. Portland really does have it all…and the secret is out. Portland consistently makes the list of most livable cities in the United States.

What I love about Portland
*
The downtown Farmer’s market at PSU is amazing! It opens Saturday from late spring through fall. Buy local produce, flowers, or get a bite to eat at the food carts. It can get crowded, so go early when it opens.
* Mt Tabor is my favorite spot for a run or a hike. Being surrounded by the tall tress while hiking the trails (or strolling paved roads if you prefer) clears the mind and brings peace. The views from the top are gorgeous.
* The local food is great! This is a food lovers paradise. You’ll find some of the best restaurants in the country in Portland. Close to my home, Albina Press serves fantastic espresso/lattes. Tabor Bread is known for it’s unique, earthy stone oven baked bread using home milled grains. Porque No is a great place for margaritas and tacos, and Pizza Asholls serves a solid thin crust pizza. Both are well known and so good, so there’s almost always a line out the door.
* Saturday Market is a place I always take visitors. Open on the weekends (not just Saturday), it’s filled with vendors selling local crafts and wares.
* The waterfront path – which runs on the east and west of the Willamette River, and is connected by a few bridges – allows you to bike, walk or run while taking in the unique waterfront sites.
