Recent Portland reviews

  • Really Is Perfect!

    "We recently stayed at The Cecilia while in Portland visiting family and the condo and location were great! Joan has thought of everything that a visitor could possibly want and we really appreciated how clean, fresh, and quiet the unit was. We come to Portland frequently and will definitely stay here again!"

  • Excellent, memorable and comfortable home!

    "This house is fantastic! We came to Portland for the first time to see my niece graduate from PSU with her Phd. We had to rely on pictures and communique with Will, the owner, to determine if this place was our best option to accommodate our large family (ranging from age 4 to age 74), every room was full! The pictures posted enabled us to plan accordingly and the correspondence with Will (I sent many emails with many questions) enabled us to determine we were right where we needed to be. Will was accommodating, helpful and kind. The house was beautiful, charming, had everything we needed and then some! The house was very clean, the beds were comfortable, linens were plentiful, kitchen was stocked, coffee houses, restaurants, transportation all nearby and within walking distance! Something we are not used to in Phoenix! We enjoyed sitting on the patio for hours as well as gathering in the lush backyard and watching the kids play. In short, it was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, in fact we took family portraits on the front steps with the beautiful historic house as our background. Our stay was perfect from start to finish. We are hoping for another opportunity or reason to come back and stay here in the near future!"

  • Great location!

    "Some friends and my husband and I stayed here for Labor Day weekend and had such a great time! There was plenty of room in the house for 5 people and it had everything we needed (there is only one small tv in the living room but we weren't in the condo enough for that to really matter). It was about a $20 cab ride to the Saturday market, but we also were able to walk to a bunch of great bars, resturaunts and stores from the house! Would highly recommend this spot!"

  • great Portland experience

    "This house was perfect for our stay in Portland with 3 teenagers. We even had a driveway and a garage something we can only dream of at home in Baltimore. But even if we did not have a car there is so much to see just in the Hawthorne neighborhood. WE walked to dinner and breakfast several times. Downtown was a short 3 mile drive. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable and well equipped in every way. I never met the property manager but she was extremely helpful and went out of her way for us on several occasions including rescuing my kids when they were locked out. The only thing renters should know about the house is that there are a fair number of steps. I probably would not have even noticed this but my husband broke his ankle hiking the last day and the steps were a big challenge for him."

Portland Travel Tips

Even though Portland is Oregon's most populous city, it has as its claim to fame being America's most environmentally friendly city. Green space planning was implemented as far back as 1903 and since 1995, the city has been actively acquiring key natural areas to be used for the preservation of fish and wildlife and for recreational use by its residents. Portland has both the largest and smallest park in the U.S. Forest park is the largest wilderness area, covering more than 5,000 acres within city limits. The smallest is Mills End Park; it is a mere two feet in diameter.

The climate is perfectly suited to growing roses and Portland is also often referred to as the "City of Roses." There are several beautifully sculpted gardens in the city and one of the most famous is the International Rose Test Garden.
