                            This apartment is everything you hope for when you book a stay online. The location was great and within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. The area is quiet and is full of beautiful historic homes. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone who needs a comfortable place to stay right in the heart of Portland.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                            Absolutely wonderful. Apt was quaint, cozy and classic. Walking distance to everything in Portland--no car needed! Cafe across the street served inexpensive! Yet outstanding (and creative) breakfast and dinners. Highly recommend for weekend getaways to Portland!

                            Prana and Rene (the owners) were quite welcoming and helpful. The apartment was clean and comfortable and within short walking distance to downtown. The location was quiet which allowed for a good night's sleep. There is a small cafe across the street that serves excellent (and cheap!) breakfast. If staying in Portland again, I would definitely reserve this apartment.

                            Had a great stay! It was a very nice quiet studio, fresh and clean. We enjoyed the close proximity to downtown and would definitely stay again! It was very nice to stay in a place that was almost like home...

                            Owner response: Thank you for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed the apt. & plan to stay again. July is a very fun time to stay in Portland. May we see you again soon!

                            I can't say enough good things about the location of this apartment. It hits the mark for being close to the waterfront and downtown Portland. Our goal in Portland was to hit as many fantastic restaurants as possible in the short time we were there. All of the restaurants on our wish list were within walking distance of the Studio. The Studio itself is adorable, we especially enjoyed the courtyard each morning. There is a Cafe right across the street to pick up your coffee. The owners are very nice and are happy to give you their recommendations for food and activities. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. We will definitely be back!

                            Owner response: Thank you Christie! We welcome you back with open arms anytime. So good to hear the apt. met your vacation needs. :-)

                            We wanted to experience this old port town without all the hotel clutter. Prana had everything ready for our arrival including local attraction information for our stay. The neighborhood grocery stores, pubs,and wonderful eateries were close by. The pleasure of not having any big Corporate enviroment around was a special treat.We will recommend Prana's place to our family and friends who like adventures. All three of us were pleased with our choice. Thank you for everything.
