"My husband and I were able to get away for two nights and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. It was so serene and peaceful. Upon arrival we noticed all the personal touches from Karen. It was close to the village where there was a wonderful assortment of shops and restaurants. Such a nice getaway from our daily lives. We definitely will return!"Guest: Lili Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 20, 2014View listing
"Just spent 4 nights in NW Portland and loved this neighborhood. The house is just steps from trendy NW restaurants, pubs, and shops. The Portland Trolly stops close to the house. We flew to Portland and were able to take the TriMet and trolley to the house, a car is not necessary. The house is well built and is great for one family or for couples, each bedroom has it's own full bathroom. There's a great deck out back too. I can't wait to go back."Guest: Thomas D.

"My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-June...and our expectations were more than exceeded. First, Margie and David are great people...very warm and inviting. Not for one minute did we feel uncomfortable in their home. You can engage them as much as you like, or they will totally respect your privacy if that's more your thing. The property is truly magical...you are in the middle of the forest...and literally 5 minutes from great eats, shops, etc. The apartment has everything you need, and then some...everything is clean and working. In my opinion...if you're visiting Portland, you'd be crazy to stay in a hotel if this place is available."Guest: cozcoz Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 20, 2014View listing
"This is a great set up, nicely finished while keeping old feel. Management was friendly and helpful Good location with bus and street car close. We are from very small town in quiet neighbourhood, this is located right beside busy (for us) city artery. Traffic noise all night was enough to look else where when we return to amazing and friendly city. Most guests might find it very quiet compared to home. Owner could change 1 window in bedroom to triple glaze to cut a lot of noise."Guest: Tim F. Date of Stay: November 2013 Review Submitted: December 6, 2013View listing
