Charming studio apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) thoroughly enjoyed this studio apartment. Quiet neighborhood with plenty of street parking just a few miles from all east side shopping / food areas like Sellwood, Hawthorne, Division, etc. Our kids loved their room and the swing in the backyard, and all beds were so comfortable! Nicci is a wonderful, welcoming host that provide us with great recommendations and even provided a variety of drinks for us in the fridge. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

Fantastic, top marks!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it, the kids had toys to play with and movies to watch, the location was perfect, located in a great neighborhood close to parks, groceries, bakery, laundromat and less than 15mins from everything else. The kids room with the raised floor gave it a fun tree-house vibe which made it easier to put the kids to bed here than in their room at home. One night my son came out to tell us that he didn't want to leave, "Mommy, I need this room" he said. That pretty much sums it up for all of us, we'll definitely be returning back soon.

Great place no response on security deposit refund

  • 3 of 5

Nicci's place was fun and comfy. She was helpful and friendly. Safe and secure neighborhood.

However, after 2 weeks I have not received my deposit back or any response to my 2 requests for info. For me, booking any vacation rental is just not worth signing up for the hassle of trying to get my deposit refunded. Will be going with a traditional hotel room in the future when possible.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you felt the need to expose this in a review after the multiple times I got in touch with you explaining how and what happened. I felt like I was extremely accommodating to you and your pup and thought about deducting the $25 dollars for the dog fee from the security deposit which you DID NOT pay when you booked the reservation but I decided against it because " why go there?". Thanks for the 3 star review Gay, I think traditiona hotels are definitely the way to go for you in the future.

Quiet, funky, airy, cozy, and fun weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice. It's all one room, but it's spacious and has high ceilings. It's SO QUIET. There are all kinds of awesome antiques and interesting pieces of art everywhere, but not in an overwhelming "check out how Bohemian we are!" way. My friend slept in the bed and I slept in the fold out bed, and we were both happy with our sleep. The kitchen area is small, but it got the job done for early breakfast and coffee. We will totally come back!

Clean and fun to look at!

  • 5 of 5

The casita was a wonderful choice instead of a hotel. Was clean and comfortable. It had great interesting decor. Will def be back next year if its available. Was also in a nice quiet neighborhood that we felt safe in.

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.
