Nicci's decor was very charming, clever and attractive. This is a quiet night rest also.

  • 5 of 5

Nicci's Casita was equipped with everything I needed. I'm a tea drinker and her cabinet offered a selection of local teas! Not just good coffee. I will be staying again soon because the space is so welcoming after a day out and about. I was happy to return and unwind each day. The location is PERFECT! Family friendly, pet friendly, active neighborhood. It's a great find!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Nicci is very nice, flexible and helpful. The place is adorable. If you have a toddler/preschooler/small child they will absolutely love this place. My daughter loved this little room with the nook and didn't want to leave.

Easy and private

  • 5 of 5

This little house off to the side of the main house perfectly suited our stay. We were there for a wedding south of Portland, so decided to stay kinda far south. We even had our own little hang out spot in the back yard.

Very welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Nicci's place is great. She was very accommodating and I really liked refund policy. We were travelling from Canada so weren't exactly sure of our plans and it was nice to have an out. We didn't need it but it was nice to have full refund if we cancelled within 7 days. We actually stayed in the main house (at no extra cost) so that was a bonus. I can't really review the studio but this review is more about Nicci and the area. There was chocolate, fruit and beer waiting for us when we checked. Nice touch. The area is what we liked the most. It's a short commute to most areas. Lots of parks near by and public transit is very close. We were staying here after camping for 7 days and there was lots of room to park our tent trailer and the area felt safe enough to leave our bikes attached. Very nice experience and we were refunded our damage deposit very promptly.

We were a family of 4 with 2 dogs. The back yard was completely fenced so we felt safe letting the dogs out. A great place to explore as head quarters to explore Portland

quiet, peaceful and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

I was in Portland visiting my daughter, a recent college grad who lives with 3 other people in Sellwood with other friends coming and going -- it was great to come back to the Casita after dinner and other activities with her and her boyfriend and other area family and friends. Absolutely quiet and private, unique art and decor, lovely neighborhood. Owner, Nicci, was friendly and helpful. I'll be back!

A serene hide away in a crazy world.

  • 5 of 5

In the midst of a crazy time we were blessed to find Nicci's little retreat of a home. A unique and welcoming place full of warmth and whimsy. We relaxed in the yard at night we watched the full moon cross the sky undisturbed by noise or lights. Truly a one of a kind treat and Nicci herself could not have been more gracious and welcoming.

The casita is nestled in charming Eastmoreland and close to so many Portland attractions. The casita is stocked with lots of information on all the desirable tourist attractions and " the insiders guide " to Portland. If there is anything you need just let me know and I can arrange it for you!

It looks as if it's going to be a hot summer here in Portland. We do have air conditioning in the casita.
