About Maya

I am a local restaurant owner and love all that Portland has to offer from the downtown foodie scene to the incredible outdoor adventures. Brian is a local real estate broker and enjoys getting to know the local community as well as those that are moving here. We love touring houses and learning more about each of the unique communities surrounding the Portland area. Brian and I have both grown up here and know what makes Portland truly special. We are lifers!

Maya purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Maya chose Brooklyn

I am in love with older homes! I purchased this duplex in order to restore its original glory and live in it myself. We have remodeled and lived in the upstairs apartment (the VRBO) and love the look, feel and craftsmanship of this house. We chose this house because we love being close to downtown and all that Portland has to offer. This duplex offered the ease of living/working downtown whilst also avoiding the common problems that come with. The neighborhood is friendly, quiet and kids play in the streets yet it is only a quick trip to enjoy the more lively nightlife on Division st.

What makes this bungalow unique

From the moment you walk up this house will embrace and surprise you. Made by a craftsman in 1908 for his beloved daughter, it has a classic Dutch Colonial style. Enjoy the little touches like a small patio off of your kitchen or the clawfoot tub.

Charming Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed staying in this charming duplex apartment for four nights. The apartment was well equipped for cooking and relaxing and was an easy one-bus ride to downtown. Quiet neighborhood with a nearby restaurant, coffee shops, and small grocery stores. It would be an excellent location if you were planning to see a show at the Apollo Theater. What we most loved about the apartment was the small balcony with a bistro table and chairs located just outside the kitchen. It was great to see another side of Portland since we usually stay downtown when we visit. The owners were very responsive to questions and clearly wanted to make our visit enjoyable. We would definitely stay there again.

Great and simple stay historic duplex in great location!

  • 5 of 5

I scheduled our 4 day, 3 night trip to Portland with Maya months in advance and she was great to work with. The small space worked just fine with our family of 5 - my wife and I, our 5 yr old, 2.5 yr old, and 4.5 month old. The duplex unit is definitely an older feel than what we are used to, but we went in expecting some old quirks. It really did the trick for our family and provided everything we needed...a place to sleep, a full kitchen, a bathroom, etc. The location is great and a quick drive to everything around town. We had a great time and had no issues. There was a washer/dryer available that we did not use. We didn't use any of the available kitchenware....just the fridge, bathroom, linens, beds...pretty simple! Would definitely recommend staying here....simple and no frills!

Quaint stay

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a good stay here. The foyer was tiny and a bit hard to maneuver while carrying baggage up the wooden stairs. The area was nice, quaint and enough space for two adults and a baby. The queen size bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. One thing we noticed in the bedroom was that the comforter looked like it had black dog hair on it. We ended up removing that and using the extra blankets in the living room.

We also requested the crib and access to the laundry facilities. I was happy to see that a crib was an option and available to use. However, being 5'2" with a 3 month old, this crib didn't work out well for us. It was fairly deep for myself and was difficult to care for my baby in and out of the crib. I eventually set up a space on the floor for baby to sleep.

We really enjoyed the array of spices available in the kitchen. There was enough counter space to make meals and enough dishes too. It did take a while for the stovetop to heat up the pots and pans. The pots and pans seemed dated which could have hindered the cooking time.

The check out procedures were clear and concise. When we took the trash and recycling out to the shed, like the note stated, we couldn't find the containers. They were actually against the back of the house.

Compared to other VRBO rentals, we feel that we had better quality and for a better price. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Maya was easily accessible, even on Christmas. She was prompt in answering phone calls and texts.
