Recent Portland reviews

  • Ideal Accommodations

    "My wife and I stayed 18 days in the Garden Apartment while awaiting the birth of our grandson in Portland. Simply put, our experience matched the glowing reviews posted by previous travelers - which was a major factor in our decision to book our stay. Proximity to our son's home, immediate neighborhood, access to exhilarating walks up and down Mt. Tabor trails, fresh food and dining nearby, amenities, up-to-date furnishings, and cleanliness of the apartment, plus the friendly and efficient demeanor of hosts Charley and Diane all added up to a five-star stay. We have already booked a return stay later in the year."

  • Amazing Stay in Trendy Portland Neighborhood.

    "My teenage daughter and I rented a condo in the Butternut complex for a 5 day stay over spring break. We loved this place! It was so much better than staying in a hotel. I felt very safe, secure and comfortable, which was very important to me since it was just the two of us. There was so many fun things to do close by and lots of great places to eat: Blue Star Donuts is a must, Albina Coffee Press is directly across the street and serves amazing coffee and one house down is Tabor Bakery. Mt. Tabor Park is close and there are a lot of little shops to explore. We loved the proximity to downtown Portland. The owner was very kind and helpful. My daughter ended up having surgery the week before and when I contacted the owner to let her know we might be late, she was very accommodating. When we met the owner to pick up the keys she had upgraded us to a king size bed unit so we'd be more comfortable. Within 24 hours of checking out, my security deposit was returned. We will be back for sure!"

    "Perfect for families with children. our son loved the toys, child size bed, step stool and park 2 blocks away. Yet the house was nice and stylish for adults too."

  • BR - Florida

    "This was a wonderful place to stay! The apt was clean, well-furnished, and wonderfully located. It is within walking distance of 21 Street, 23 Street, and the Pearl District. The streetcar goes right in front of the building - very convenient. Christiane and Anton could not have been more helpful and hospitable. I will definitely stay here again."
