  • Wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend

    "We came to Portland over the Thanksgiving weekend to visit with my son in college. The house was warm, welcoming and fully stocked. The owners were accommodating and pleasant to work with. We were able to cook a nice Thanksgiving meal for our family and friends. There weren't a lot of large pots, but we made do with the pots and pans they had. We enjoyed the warmth of the fireplace and spent a little bit of time on the deck when it warmed up to 50's. We would certainly return to this lovely home on a future Portland trip."

  • So great we went back for more!

    "One year later we returned to Portland. We loved Tom's place the first time around so I reached out to him and the place was just as good as we remembered. The location can't be beat. Great coffee, great food, and great places to explore nearby. It's such a convenient location to access all that Portland has to offer. If we're back next year, you can be sure we'll be staying here again!"

  • Thoughtful Host % Excellent Location

    "We are an older couple thinking of moving to Portland. This location in the Mt. Tabor area is an idea home base for exploring the city. The apartment was comfortable and features a wonderful terrace with great downtown views. We had a rental car so there was easy access to everything the East Side of Portland had to offer, and the car also made our excursions further afield very easy. If we had needed to depend on Portland's excellent [public transit system there were bus stops nearby and they offer a short trip to the access point for the Max - Portland's wonderful light rail system. Our host was very helpful as was her handyman, who gave us some excellent suggestions for a number of our day trips. The kitchen was nicely equipped - we do almost all of our own cooking for health reasons, although Portland's restaurant and bar scenes are varied and attractive for those who can enjoy them. The apartment was clean and roomy, and the WiFi connection was fast - which is important to us because we both work online even during vacations. We would definitely return - thank you Lee Anne!"

  • Great location

    "We enjoyed our week-long stay in mid-December! Everything was super-clean and in excellent condition! Clare was so helpful and we took advantage of the nearby restaurants for breakfast nearly every day...JAM was our favorite! The kitchen is extremely well-supplied with things like seasonings and coffee filters. The weather was cold and rainy while we were there so did not get to use the courtyard although I could see it would be very nice! Thanks to Jim and Clare for their hospitality."
