About Linda Olson

A TERRIFIC BASE FOR SEEING PORTLAND

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend and found the house to be everything we wanted: clean, comfortable and easy access to sites in and around Portland. Further, the owner was very accommodating when our plans changed at the last minute. We would definitely stay there on our next trip to Portland and highly recommend it to others.

Very cute house, just hot

  • 3 of 5

It is a very cute house with plenty of parking, comfy bedrooms and living room. Great back patio and kitchen is well equipped. Also in a good area.

The two upstairs bedrooms have window ac units but if it's really hot like it was the 2 days we were in Portland and you want to stay cool this is not your place to stay. The basement room wasn't even cool enough.

I have MS and can not get overheated. I had to stay in the bedroom with ice packs until it cooled off enough to go out back to the patio.

Linda was easy to get a hold of also.

If we go again and it is a cooler time of year I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Portland has traditionally not been very hot in summer, most homes do not have AC as the really hot days were rare. The global warming trend has given us more hot days in the last couple of years. We lived here for 26 years and only last summer put window ACs at our home and rental. It now seems this change may be permanent so we are looking into central air for our homes. This is the first review with a complaint about heat at the home.

Beautiful, quiet tree lined street welcomed us. Clean, charming home was exactly what we expected.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I could not have been more pleased with this property. It was surrounded by local pubs, eateries, coffee shops and proximity to city center was outstanding. Furnishings, bedding and the cleanliness were all top notch. Quaint backyard seating area will get more use the next time we return.....and we will! Thank you for such a fantastic experience.

Cute little cottage

  • 3 of 5

This cottage is in a quiet neighborhood with very narrow streets. The house is older but with some upgrades. The day we arrived Portland was 100 degrees and the cottage does not have air conditioning, only 2 fans. The 2 main bedrooms and bath were fine, good shower pressure. I would not recommend staying in the basement bedroom as there was a musty smell. Using the bathroom was fine. It is also kind of dingy and dark. We did not stay long enough to get the lay of the land as far as convenience. Overall it was ok. Linda was very nice and helped us get settled.

Owner's Response: We have air-conditioning in both of the bedrooms on the main floor, the lower level is naturally cool.When this guest arrived the weather had made a sudden change from.cool to warm and air-conditioners were immediately installed. We have a dehumidifier on at all times in the lower level to keep the air fresh. This is the first review in the entire 3,5 years of renting that mentioned a musty smell. The lower level does not have the same light as above but is clean and nicely decorated and offers a value for families and groups of 6 with the extra beds and bath.

Great location for my visit. Nicely appointed house with a sweet patio to enjoy mornings and evening

  • 4 of 5

Biggest downside was that we were there on a very hot weekend, no air conditioning, not unusual for Portland, but all the windows in the living room and dining room are unopenable due to installed storm windows making these common rooms uncomfortably warm.

lovely, cozy home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, cozy home in a wonderful neighborhood. Convenient location in family friendly and charming neighborhood. Two nice bedrooms with comfortable queen beds upstairs and an apartment style room downstairs bedroom with a queen bed and a twin ..with its own bathroom. Be sure to have a fan if it gets above 80 degrees, as all homes in Portland can get quite stuffy and warm even with the house fan that does help circulate the cool air from the basement. The stairs to the basement would not be great for small children as they are steep and do enjoy the small patio space off of the main bedroom. Kitchen has everything you need and the neighbors are young families that would likely appreciate quiet, respectful visitors. Thank you Linda for helping me with some communication challenges originating with VRBO. Linda is responsive and very helpful without intruding at all.
