"This was our first trip to Portland, and the condo location worked perfectly for us. We enjoyed using public transportation and had ready access for all the sights we had planned...and a few we hadn't. The water with tugs, barges and pleasure boats made for great viewing. Lisa and Bill were very helpful when we had a few questions. Between perfect weather, location and lots to do it was a memorable trip!"Guest: Stuart G.

"We were in Portland to visit out daughter and Loved it ! My husband and I could not have been happier with the D Street Studio Apartment. It is a great area with plenty of things to do and see within walking distance of the Studio, all you have to do is go outside the front door. Kim was a very gracious hostess and we appreciated all the extra little touches she has that make you feel right at home. Portland is a beautiful city with so many things to do and see. We will be back again and can't wait to rent again from Kim !"Guest: Tina Bina Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 13, 2014View listing
"Very nice little apartment, perfect as a home base while you check out the big city. Diane and Charley are very sweet - they're friendly but they mostly keep to their house. Diane was kind enough to make sightseeing and restaurant recommendations. The apartment is behind (and attached to) their home but it feels a world away. If you're out late don't worry - the entire path to the apartment is well-lit by motion-sensor lights. No fumbling in the dark here! The apartment itself is airy and light, thanks to the many windows. The kitchen is stocked with spices and plenty of bowls, plates, etc. When we arrived there was peanut butter and other condiments in the fridge, I think left by previous renters. It's the same in the bathroom - there is a cabinet with "donations" from other renters (things like bug spray, sunscreen, hair gel, etc) and shampoo/conditioner in the shower. There's also a washing machine and dryer - but they've also supplied detergent! It's just a 15 minute walk to the MAX station and is served by 3 of the 4 lines, so it goes almost anywhere! It's also on the corner of 2 major bus lines (19 and 20) so there's really no reason for a car. We did quite well for a week using just public transit and our feet. Diane and Charley have also left a nice, fat stack of maps and guidebooks in the apartment - be sure to check out the restaurant guide before hitting the city! (And don't miss Saint Cupcake! You won't regret a visit!) In short, it's a quiet, well-equipped, peaceful home base. Don't hesitate - just book your stay!"Guest: Melissa S.

"First, thank you Tim for providing a wonderful place to get away from the traditional motel/hotel experience. To begin with, Tim presented as hospitable, flexible, and expedient in arranging my 3 night stay. I contacted him with only one day notice, and he sent an email within an hour after contacting him. He was very good at providing information and staying in contact through email, and when I called he picked up to answer my questions. Tim is a great host, and I enjoyed his affable personality. PROs of the cottage: After a long day of driving, it was such a pleasure to enter the cottage that felt comfortable and homey compared to standard hotel rooms. This is a versatile place, which could fulfill the needs of a romantic get-away, or a small family needing a break from the city. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioner was sufficient to keep the bedroom cool. The sunken jet Jacuzzi was roomy and comfortable for two! The kitchen had sufficient dishware and pots to cook a meal. There is a large area around the place that is well kept, which is ideal for kids to play and provides a country feel. CONs of the cottage: If a person is looking for a polished and perfect cottage, then this place might not be a fit. There is some wear with over use, such as the fridge door making a popping sound when opened, but it closes fine. At night there is some road noise from passing cars, albeit the obnoxious sounding types, which can be heard and could affect light sleepers. I ranked this place five stars because the overall package is a great experience. When I inquired about the barbecue, he made sure I had everything I needed to use it. When I asked Tim if he had bikes to borrow, which he said he did not have, he indicated that he might purchase some in the future. I appreciated his attentiveness. Although I did not meet his wife, I imagine that they are great team in making every effort to make a stay at their cottage a memorable one."Guest: kwebb Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 27, 2014View listing
