Our family stayed in Front Break, Rear Break, and Low Gear for a wedding weekend and it was perfect. The Mississippi houses are well-outfitted with all amenities (including coffee grinder) and are close walking distance to restaurants, while the Alberta house's big advantage is its walking distance to Alberta Co-op grocery store. We loved being able to gather the folks from Front Break into Rear Break for a large gathering of both houses; the space was great for this. The power went out in Low Gear after heavy winds and they alerted us of this and brought over candles and flashlights right away. We also met Klaas and he was very sweet. You can tell the owners care about their guests' satisfaction.
We decided on a long weekend trip to Portland and Rear Break proved to be the ideal accommodation. This spacious, beautiful home provided more than enough room for the nine people in our party. The full kitchen and dining area served as our main gathering place. Comfortable beds, three bathrooms and laundry facilities -- this really is an ideal home away from home. Michelle and Klaas are excellent hosts who take great care to make sure their guests have a memorable stay at their immaculate, welcoming home.
We had a fabulous time in Portland! The rental house in the Mississippi District was perfect for 6 adults and one infant. The host was so accommodating with our arrival schedule, and the house is was perfect with 2 bedrooms upstairs and 2 downstairs. The weather allowed us to use the outdoor areas provided, and I rocked my grandson using the front porch rocker everyday. The location was perfect: groceries were close, easy access to the freeways, wonderful restaurants within walking district as well as a park and rose garden just blocks away. We would definitely stay here again!
Love this property and the back house, cute, tidy, and close to everything. We had such a good time and love the outdoor space too.
We rented the whole Alberta house for 11 college friends. 6 guests in the upstairs unit and 5 guests in the lower unit. The location and house is exceptional! Always had hot water for showers; we could never hear the upstairs guests when in the lower unit; comfy beds; and great amenities all around! You can't beat the location too - we spent so much time on Alberta Street just walking to all the retail stores, breweries and restaurants.
Flawless stay. We had a group of 6 in for a golf trip. Check-in was seamless, the beds were comfortable, the outdoor space was aspirational, and the furnishings inside were great. Highly recommend.
Me and my family really enjoyed our stay. The owners and property manager were kind and responsive. You can really tell that the strive to make sure you enjoy the home and your stay. We really appreciated the details of the house and the welcome gifts (coffee, wine, and cookies) they provided. The kitchen was well stocked and the house was very clean. It felt like home and I will look to stay at Shift again in the future. The home is in a wonder neighborhood close to several great restaurants and shops. Definitely worth checking out!!!
No complaints. Had everything we needed and was central to lots of restaurants and markets. Our little boys had good fun on the tulip seats and rocking bench. If we make it out to Portland again, we'll be looking up Shift.
Our family of 7 stayed on Alberta for our grand son’s Bar Mitzvah. We had all adults plus a two-year old. The house was very accommodating for everyone and we were able to walk to early morning coffee and evening dinner spots. The house was very well decorated and comfortable as well as clean. The washer and dryer were very much appreciated. We had a fabulous time! Thanks Michelle and Klaas!😘
Lovely home in a great location! Super clean and cozy with attention paid to lot’s of great little details.. Next door a bunch of cute restaurants, stores, and coffee shops. Great kitchen and soo nice to have a washer and dryer. Sweet courtyard and porch that the kids loved. 4 adults and 4 kids slept comfortably. Will definitely want to stay here again next time My family is in Portland.:)
