Recent Portland reviews

  • Fantastic Headquarters for our multiple family trip!

    "This home accommodated our group so well! We had 2 families with toddlers and 3 adults. Half our crew ran the Hood to Coast relay and the other half got to sight-see while we were in Portland! The house had everything we needed and more! They provided 2 high chairs and 2 pack-n-plays! That was a huge help to not have to pack those items. The backyard was perfect for the little ones! The house is centrally located so it's easy to get around town. We rented a car (due to the kids) and never had trouble finding parking in front of the house. The only thing we wished for when our runners returned from the race was another shower (one shower and one bathtub). However our kids loved the big bath tub upstairs! We highly recommend this location!"

  • Better than described!

    "The Garden Apartment is a wonderful place to stay. My wife and I visited Portland to see our son and his family, and Diane and Charley's rental was perfect. It had everything we needed for our home base, as we explored the city. I really can not think of anything I would change. Parking was easy, the home was close to all our needs, and it has heated bathroom floors! We came home and my wife now wants heated bathroom floors- she got spoiled in just 4 days. Thanks for providing us a great place to stay. Your rental fits. And we will return."

  • Wonderful riverfront views and city access

    "Lovely condo in splendid location right on the river. We could sit at the bistro style dining table overlooking the river for hours, sharing meals, playing cards, watching the boats and wildlife. It was also a real treat to walk along the river and up to the PSU campus...esp. fabulous for the Saturday farmers' market. Walking distance to the aerial tram, and an easy hop on to the N/S streetcar to head downtown, to the Pearl, to NW 23rd, and of course connecting to all of PDX via other mass transit . The condo is pleasantly furnished and comfortable, with a nice kitchen. We look forward to our next stay."

  • Perfect location for us

    "This is our second time staying at these condos. The location is excellent for restaurants, shops, hiking around Mt. Tabor, and for us, being just 9 blocks from our kids. The condos are very comfortable, very clean, have everything and then some in the kitchen, and are a perfect size for a couple. The owners are great hosts; available, if need be, yet unobtrusive. Two doors down is the Tabor Bread Co. Going there for breakfast is heavenly and one can't help buying the bread of the day to take home. We would definitely stay here again."

Even though Portland is Oregon's most populous city, it has as its claim to fame being America's most environmentally friendly city.
