Very nice, clean and safe environment.
My daughter's and I had a long weekend get away for spring break. We followed my GPS and was pleasantly surprised to arrive to the upper scale property in the hills. We received a friendly greeting and tour of the clean two bedroom, plus table pool room, finished basement of the home of the owner. The place was very clean, well furnished and felt comfortable. There was a large smart TV with several DVD options. I did not cook (on vacation) but the kitchen would meet quick cooking needs. It was fully stocked with clean dishes and everyday kitchen necessities.
Our first mission was to ride the Max to the zoo. The Max station was close and convenient to the apartment. After our afternoon in Portland, we were able to sit on the deck at the apartment and overlook the wooded common area. Very private, neighbors were near, but not in your space. The next day, we had a quick drive into Portland. I love the easy access to public transport or easy drive to the city. I was offered a late checkout if we wanted. I would come back again to this safe feeling home in a heartbeat. Enjoy your stay, you will not be disappointed.
Lovely location. Bright, spacious and comfortable and very clean
This was the perfect place for a friend from California and I to meet for a long weekend. Marina greeted us with some delicious homemade pastries and welcomed us to her home. It was a rainy weekend and we found it very relaxing to sit in the recliners with a glass of wine and watch the rain outside. We did get one nice day and were able to take a tour of some of the Willamette Valley wineries. We would most definitely stay here again.
The apartment is very nice, plenty of space.
The apartment was wonderful. Two bedrooms, pool table, many DVDs and board games. The home is located in a very nice neighborhood with numerous parks and trails. Marina is the perfect host. She is quick to respond and very friendly. She even baked some home made apple pastries which were delicious! I will definitely stay here again. The entrance is down a walkway with steps. The walkway is well lit, but may be difficult to maneuver if you are elderly or have a disability with balance or walking.
Thanks for this awesome review .It is much appreciated. It was pleasure to host you. Please, come back anytime. Best, Marina,
Great weekend getaway
Marina was a really nice host and very responsive. She made sure we had everything we needed and was really flexible with us on our arrival and departure. The kitchen was really clean and well stocked and there was a nice pool table that provided fun for us after spending the day in Portland. We'd love to stay here again and highly recommend the property!
