Recent Portland reviews
"I visit my son in Portland twice yearly and I was eager to break out of my comfortable but bland hotel routine. I wanted to stay near the Alberta Arts District since it is near his home and is an area I find myself gravitating to for frequent dining and shopping. The Kuza Cabin offered the experience I was hoping for. It was modern and cozy at the same time; compact in its design but roomy in its feel. It is right behind the patio of Yakuza Lounge and the family's home which included evening restaurant sounds, limited morning restaurant prep activity and a vague awareness of the owner's family comings and goings. None of this was a problem for me and it felt like a fair trade off for the neighborhood experience as opposed to the physical isolation of a hotel room that is invaded by random street noise. As an occasional single traveller I felt comforted and secure in this setting and I am equally confident my husband will appreciate the space and experience when he joins me on my next trip."Guest: Tulsa Traveller Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 13, 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
"This location cannot be beat, with restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, a movie theater, a park, a library and so much more. We highly recommend Fat Albert's and Renee's Cafe for breakfast. We also enjoyed dinner at the Oaks Bottom Pub and Cha Cha Cha. It was a wonderful area to walk around and check out the architectural aspects of the homes. Our son and family live in Portland so we were able to spend some quality time with them and be there for our granddaughter's first birthday. The bungalow is older, but beautifully restored in the original style. The rooms are painted with beautiful, soothing colors and the details such as pictures and decorations are perfectly suited for the house. The beds are wonderful, which is not always the case in a rental home. I have back problems and was nervous about a month in another bed but the mattress was perfect and I didn't have any problems with my back at all. Our daughter and two grandchildren came for a visit and our grandson had a ball in his "man cave" downstairs, complete with bunk beds, futon and a TV. The basement is large and friendly, with the one bedroom and another large area where the washer and dryer are and also a grouping of furniture. I could see spending time down there in the summer, where it would be nice and cool. There is a cute little backyard, with lawn and a patio. Unfortunately, it rained so much while we were there that we weren't able to take advantage of it. It would be perfect for the warmer months though. As with any older home, there are some quirks like sticking doors and creaking floors but it just all added to the charm of the place. Thank you Ilyse for being so responsive to any questions we had. We would rent your home again in a heartbeat!"Guest: Gail M. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 3, 2014View listing
"I was very fortunate to find this amazing condo available to rent while I was in Portland for work. I was there for a little over two months and I can honestly say that it was hard to leave as I was traveling back home. The condo is very comfortable and has absolutely anything that a business/vacation traveler needs… and much more! The building is very quaint, and has a lot of character and is conveniently located right across the street from public transportation. The location could not have been better, as it is a few blocks away and walking distance from all the great bars and restaurants on 21st and 23rd, and also very close to grocery stores, coffee shops, gyms, the post office, multiple banks, and anything that one could ever need. I had the pleasure to meet some of the people living in the building and everyone is super friendly. I travel around the country for work quite a bit, and I can honestly say that this was one of my most enjoyable stays. Ellen was great to deal with. She is very responsive and answered my questions immediately. She was very flexible with me, as I had to postpone my departure time and just made my life a lot easier while I was there. This is THE place to stay when you are in Portland, and I will definitely be staying here again if I'm back in Portland."Guest: Jesus T.

Portland Travel Tips
