Guestbook comments from the owner

No complaints... Anjali met me outside, showed me where to park, showed me around the apartment and let me be. She was always available if I needed her and fixed a running toilet issue as soon as I let her know about it. Location was great as well.

Berlin Germany

Lovely apartment. Great location for 2-months!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a fun location, look no further. Whilst planning at home in Berlin, we read about this happening area in a travel guide book. Mississippi District is it and this lovely basement apartment is THE perfect location! When you enter, you know this is your private domain! It's less than a block from cool restaurants, bars and shops and in a nice residential neighborhood. Street parking only, which got pretty crowded on the weekends, although we quickly could find a spot and just walked everywhere. Anjali has provided all the amenities - fully stocked kitchen, coffee maker, toaster. towels. Kitchen was easy to cook in, nice layout. We made a lot of nice meals here, very comfy cozy. In addition to central heating, the space heaters worked great to make it toasty warm. This is a duplex with another unit upstairs which, depending on the current tenant, you can hear walking around if wearing boots. We were woken up by the people quarreling. We asked Anjali to speak with them and she took care of it immediately. Anjali is an attentive and very interactive host. She responded and resolved any issues that we had right away. Anjali is a great resource for what's happening!

Will stay longer next time with so much to do & see!

  • 5 of 5

Anjali was incredibly helpful before we even got there, checking in to make sure we understood where to go, how to check in, asking if we needed anything - wonderfully friendly. Two girlfriends and I stayed in the upstairs unit, feels like a small cottage. Adorably decorated and very homey and comfortable. Couldn't ask for a better location!! 1 block from amazing shopping, eating, and drinking. Interurban bar was excellent. Lots of other places to check out! Next time we're coming back for a longer stay!

Moving to Portland, best place to land!

  • 5 of 5

We moved from Boston into this sweet cozy downstairs apartment While the place is secluded there was just about anything we wanted...great restaurants, shops & short distance to a couple healthy grocery stores. The decor is clean & modern. Has a full-size washer & dryer, appointed with everything that we needed. Anjali is very accommodating. We needed a particular cookware for my favorite dish, we asked and it just so happened she had it. We felt very welcomed by her & very comfortable in asking for what we wanted. With the real estate market very competitive for buyers, it took us longer than we thought to nail our dream home.

Portland summer visit

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the N Mississippi apartment. The neighborhood is full of charm. While visiting our Portland daughter, we were able to easily travel to the sights of the city from this central location. The apartment was small but the four of us felt at home. The kitchen was adequate to cook complete meals. The barbeque grill outside was also used since the weather was nice while there. We ate at several places on Mississippi. Recommend walking there to check out the variety of places.

The DVD player could be more updated, maybe add cable for the TV. More towel racks needed for the bathroom especially for 4 people. Street parking not always available in front of the house due to the many people enjoying the Mississippi District at night.

Owner's Response: With its endless array of entertainment, people come from all over the world to enjoy this destination location! Currently street parking is free without fees. Getting around is easy. We're on a greenway-bike path. #4 bus around the corner to anywhere Portland. Max Light rail is a skip over the pedestrian bridge. New Seasons chocked full of healthy groceries is an easy 8 blocks. Our Walkscore 88. If you can't find special cookware, we might have it for you! The bathroom has 4 towel hooks,a 2 pronged hook to right of shower door, a 2 pronged hook left side of vanity stand and a towel rod above the toilet. And if you want to swap towels out for fresh ones, just let us know! With so many things to do in the area and guests traveling with their computers, we've elected not to put updates into transitory technologies such as DVD's. Our other place doesn't even have a TV. :) Thank you for your interest in our duplex, Mississippi Fun District Garden!

In a quiet neighborhood with good parking. Close to everything, including public transportation (bus and light rail). An accommodating and friendly owner, who lives on the premise. A good place to achieve a true feel of Portland.

Very nice lower basement apartment. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in the Mississippi neighborhood and Anjeli's apartment was everything we needed. The location was perfect. Two blocks from Mississippi, where there was so much to do. It was clean, the kitchen was well suited for cooking our own meals, and the bed was very comfortable. There were good windows in the basement and living room, so that it felt airy and light, even though it was below ground.

We would stay here again!

Owner's Response: This sun-kissed apartment is sub-terra, mostly below ground level .Visit for a tour that very clearly depicts look and feel. Fun colors, textures and art with 4x5' window in the living room and a 4x4' window in the bedroom. Yes! Secluded, yet we're literally only 420 feet from ever popular Mississippi Av and its endless array of eats treats and beats! Sub-terra basement apartment is private, bright and sun kissed with South facing windows: 4x5' in Living room and 4x4' in bedroom; naturally quiet, refreshingly cool in the Summer and cozy warm in the Winter! Thank you for your interest. See you soon!
