  • Wonderful place to Stay

    "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!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "Some relatives and I met at this home for 10 days in Portland. It worked out perfectly! Some of the most appreciated features: Off Street Parking. I parked the car and forgot it until time to go home. Separate Spaces. With 2 master suites, 3 bathrooms, and a living/dining room separate from the kitchen/sitting, our group could always get a shower and plenty of privacy when needed. We ALL loved the location. Just a block from the street car which took us downtown. A bus stop was also convenient. We got week long passes for public transport and went everywhere with no problem. The neighborhood was exceptionally quiet but we could walk to many amazing restaurants, shops, and coffee. The place was clean and pleasant for our arrival and arrival/departure times were very flexible. Arrival and departure instructions were clear and easy to follow. Overall, an excellent place! We will try to use it again if we're all back in Portland. The only downside was that it took a few weeks to get the deposit back. When I asked about delays the owner was very prompt in replying and there was no issue getting the entire deposit back. The home could also benefit from a few more instructions. We loved having the washing machine, but a paragraph on how to operate it would have been helpful too. As wood something about the gas fireplace. Perhaps there had been instructions but they had been misplaced."

  • Perfect for the Pearl

    "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!"

  • Perfect Portland Stay!

    "This quintessential Portland house is located in a fantastic neighborhood. (I know because I lived in close-in Portland for six years.) The owners have clearly taken great care with the renovations. They have also gone above and beyond in making the house a wonderful stay for their guests. The place is absolutely spotless, and the bed and linens were great. Booking and check-in were super easy. We will definitely stay here again, and look forward to seeing the backyard garden in full bloom. Oh, and thanks for the bottle of wine!"
