"Just spent another week at this wonderful floating home on the Willamette River. Our family has been coming here for at least 6 years now and it gets better every time. Living just a half an hour away, we rent this home so we can spend time with our grown children and their mates. They can still work all day in Portland and join us for dinner in the afternoon and wake boarding and wake surfing in the evening. Joyce, the owner, is always so pleasant and works to make our vacation wonderful. Taylor, a jack of all trades on site, keeps the place working if there is ever a problem. The weather was beautiful all week. My husband and I hit the hot tub every morning and enjoyed the beautiful view of the water and birds from there. The kitchen is equipped with just about everything you could want and the home itself is decorated so beautifully. Getting set to book this again for next year already. Thanks Joyce and Bob for letting us enjoy your home once again."

"As a regular summer visitor to Portland, I decided that this year I would try a rental property. I could not have been more pleased. From my very first contact with owner Jim, his communication was prompt, detailed, positive, and always professional. I was looking for a longer term (2-3 week) rental apartment and he was able to arrange this quickly for me. He provided tons of helpful information and photos not only about the apartment, but also the neighborhood's stores, restaurants, and other amenities. Resident caretaker Clare met me on arrival and kindly showed me through the apartment. The space was perfect and the rooms were exactly as photographed. I found the immediate neighborhood very quiet.
As I was there during some very hot weather, Jim had had a bedroom window AC unit installed, which was a much appreciated addition for the nights I needed it. The bed was very comfortable and there was lots of closet, storage and dresser space for my clothes and luggage. Kitchen and bathroom were great and kitchen cupboards were well-stocked with utensils. I used the large microwave and coffeemaker frequently, along with the very spacious refrigerator. The desk with wi-fi connection in the front living room worked out fine. Not being a TV watcher, I did not use the television.
Probably one of the most appreciated attributes about this property is its proximity to public transit (Hawthorne and Belmont frequent service bus lines) and local grocery stores, bakeries, shops, and restaurants, all within easy walking distance (loved Grand Central Bakery's sandwiches and pastries the best!). Downtown Portland is a 10-15 minute bus ride away and the Buckman/Sunnyside neighborhoods are just great for walking. Although I did not make use of the secluded courtyard in the back of the property since I was out much of the time, it looked very inviting and well-maintained.
I cannot recommend this vacation rental spot and its owner enough...it was an all-around terrific and welcome spot to headquarter my Portland vacation this year. I would easily return again in the future and am confident that others will enjoy this property too."

"This little cottage was fantastic! My family and I have stayed in many rental homes in many different areas. It's our preferred way to stay vs. hotels. We've stayed in ones that are million dollar homes and yet this one might just be my favorite! You just can't beat staying out in the country!! It's not big, but my husband and I used the bedroom and our two kids slept in the living room and we were perfectly comfortable. It was clean, cute, and welcoming. When we got there the owners had left us a plate of cookies and a bottle of local wine! Best of all though was the setting. Cute little yard right out of the front door. Pretty potted flowers, grape vines, and nice wicker furniture. We definitely spent time just sitting outside and visiting. The owner came over while we were outside and introduced herself and she was so nice! The fence right there at the yard borders some of the farm's pastures and we were all very excited to be greeted by the cows and goat! They were very friendly. As were the two cats. It was just a really great, relaxing country weekend. By far better than squeezing into a plain old hotel room.
Thanks so much for providing your rental cottage! There weren't many in the area, so I hope you keep this one going for everyone to enjoy! I'd love to come back someday without the kids and explore the area vineyards!"
