"My girlfriend and I stayed in this lovely home while attending a wedding in Portland. The location in the Alberta Arts District was great for us as first-time Portland visitors. We could easily park in front of the house, which allowed us to drive to destinations very quickly. The location is also very close walking distance to a ton of great spots (HIGHLY recommend Pok Pok), and we had a great time walking around and enjoying the neighborhood. Deb made our check-in and check-out easy and quick, and we loved every minute of our Portland adventure. Would definitely return here!"Guest: Crystalia55 Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 18, 2014View listing

"First of all, the owner, James, responded quickly to the booking request. Much appreciated. The condo is in probably the best part of Portland, with lots to see and do. Many grocery stores, restaurants, and museums within walking distance. The condo is clean, well kept, quiet, and comfortable. This is my go-to stop for visits to Portland. As to the trains nearby, we were out most of the day, but noise was not an issue. Train noise was no problem in the evening, never heard it. Thank you James."Guest: Nancee G.

"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
