"Wife and I stayed here and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Kim was great to work with from beginning to end - and even met us for an early check in. The place was great - loved the décor and definitely appreciated the AC since it was a bit warm outside during the first few days of our trip. Internet and Cable was a plus for the evenings. The location was great - close to tons of food and highways. Definitely recommend it!"

"We have definitely found the best place to stay when we travel to Portland. The Beervana apartment was great this July. We have stayed at B&Bs and homes in other cities and in hotels on past trips to Portland. We found the Beervana apartment to be the best for comfort, convenience, and friendliness and helpfulness of the owners. We were very fortunate to meet Brian and Kimberley and their smart, adorable son and their sweet, gentle dog Dunkel.
The apartment was immaculately clean and uncluttered, nicely furnished, and spacious. The beds were very comfortable, and we slept well every night. We especially enjoyed the courtyard patio for breakfast or beverages or reading a book or petting sweet Dunkel. The location was perfect, and off-street parking was a plus. The apartment was in a nice, safe neighborhood, and everything was in walking distance or a short drive. It was super convenient to restaurants, locally-owned shops, and grocery stores on Hawthorne and Belmont and a Fred Meyer grocery across the street for the inevitable 10pm run for some craving. It was great to be able to walk to Powell’s Books annexes on Hawthorne. Several nice parks were nearby. Also the apartment was only 15 minutes from the airport and about the same distance to downtown Portland.
Check this apartment for outstanding in every category! We look forward to staying again on our next visit to Portland."

"As a regular summer visitor to Portland, I decided that this year I would try a rental property. I could not have been more pleased. From my very first contact with owner Jim, his communication was prompt, detailed, positive, and always professional. I was looking for a longer term (2-3 week) rental apartment and he was able to arrange this quickly for me. He provided tons of helpful information and photos not only about the apartment, but also the neighborhood's stores, restaurants, and other amenities. Resident caretaker Clare met me on arrival and kindly showed me through the apartment. The space was perfect and the rooms were exactly as photographed. I found the immediate neighborhood very quiet.
As I was there during some very hot weather, Jim had had a bedroom window AC unit installed, which was a much appreciated addition for the nights I needed it. The bed was very comfortable and there was lots of closet, storage and dresser space for my clothes and luggage. Kitchen and bathroom were great and kitchen cupboards were well-stocked with utensils. I used the large microwave and coffeemaker frequently, along with the very spacious refrigerator. The desk with wi-fi connection in the front living room worked out fine. Not being a TV watcher, I did not use the television.
Probably one of the most appreciated attributes about this property is its proximity to public transit (Hawthorne and Belmont frequent service bus lines) and local grocery stores, bakeries, shops, and restaurants, all within easy walking distance (loved Grand Central Bakery's sandwiches and pastries the best!). Downtown Portland is a 10-15 minute bus ride away and the Buckman/Sunnyside neighborhoods are just great for walking. Although I did not make use of the secluded courtyard in the back of the property since I was out much of the time, it looked very inviting and well-maintained.
I cannot recommend this vacation rental spot and its owner enough...it was an all-around terrific and welcome spot to headquarter my Portland vacation this year. I would easily return again in the future and am confident that others will enjoy this property too."
