Perfect Choice for First-time Vacation Rental
"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."

"Fabulous property! The home was in immaculate condition and in a great location close to Eugene! The gurgling river was soothing and serene. We enjoyed the beautiful views of the river and covered bridge, as well as the first class amenities. We especially the pool table! The homeowner was a pleasure to deal with and helpful with our questions."

"This apartment was perfect for us. It slept our family very comfortably (it is not often you will hear me refer to a futon as comfortable, but it was!), the kitchen was perfect and it was clean and convenient to public transportation. Rupert and Scott were great. They were full of suggestions but also gave us our space. Wonderful! It was hot in Portland when we visited, but with the windows open this apartment stayed very cool!"

"What a lovely home from home, this home is everything that any family could need! We had a lovely trip to Portland, with space to spare in the house. Close to the attractions we wanted, and within walking distance of shops and restaurants, Brett and Marny have provided loads of information on things to see and do, and are right next door in case of questions.
The house is clean and well equipped, from crockery and kitchen equipment to toys and books, and washing and drying facilities, and the linens were so soft and luxurious.
Sitting in the garden for breakfast on the few dry days was the icing on the cake.
Travelling with teens, I would recommend OMSI for a drizzly afternoon, glow-in-the-dark mini golf, and Segway nation tours of downtown (wrap up warm!). Killer burger is an easy option and Gino's on 13th for a lovely dinner. also the cart pods are a must for quality, different dining!
thankyou for a great stay!"
