"This house was awesome! We had a girls trip getaway with women flying in from San Diego and women driving in from Grants Pass. Rhea was very accommodating to our check in/out time based on our travel schedule. This was super helpful, as I'm sure you can imagine the amount of luggage we all had. Rhea was quick to respond to any questions I had and there was clear instructions printed/emailed, which helped with many of the answers.
THE HOUSE ITSELF:
3 full beds and an extra room where a blow up mattress can easily fit. The beds were comfortable and we easily had enough room. The huge wrap around porch is awesome, kitchen was great, etc. My only complaints about the house where 1) there's only one bathroom-- not an easy fix, but with so many girls we were aware of it 2) there are only two mirrors in the house-- it made getting ready a bit challenging, but wasn't a huge deal 3) there were some fruit flies. I THINK the previous renters hadn't taken out the big trash bins in the basement, as directed. Other than that the house was amazing. Some areas were a bit creaky, but that just adds character. We were very happy with it.
The location is pretty ideal. Alberta street was really fun and full of character. It's about a 5 minute, or less, walk from the Main Street. There are lots of cute boutiques, good coffee shops (my favorite were Barista and Case Study), bars, and restaurants (Tin Shed Garden Cafe, Hot Lips Pizza, Salt & Straw, Pok Pok and Ville Velo Bake Shop). It's about a $15 uber ride from the airport and from downtown during non peak hours. It was nice to have a car, but definitely not necessary.
Overall, our stay was wonderful, we can't wait to come back to Portland again! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone :)"
