The best place I've stayed yet in Portland!

Our family had a WONDERFUL stay at this house. We are Portlanders who were living away for a couple of years, and were in search of a vacation rental over the holidays. We were greeted by the owners mother, who made us feel right at home - she even brought our children a little gift while she was out shopping one of the days! The house was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated in a classic Portland style. We have two children, and the downstairs area was just perfect for them with books and toys and a cute back bedroom. We were able to entertain friends in the main room comfortably, everything about our stay was great. I would HIGHLY recommend this vacation home!

I get it - the owners of this property are soundly anti-consumerist. That's why the house is filled with antiques - antique plumbing (had to use a plunger every morning,) antique appliances, etc.This is most definitely a budget rental, although you wouldn't know that from the prices charged, nor from the property description on the internet. Everything about it mitigates against the comfort of the visitor. From the toilet seat that was a second away from falling off to the very scary steep stairs down to the washing machines with no hand railing, and frayed carpet to boot, and on to the sofa that was falling apart, and the teensy low-end tv. Maybe there are people who like to relax and watch a DVD after a busy day. Why not put something back into the upkeep of the place? My husband and I had to buy two new pillows and a hand massager because we were so sore after spending a few nights in the house. I attempted to have my payment returned after having a coughing fit and finding tennis ball-sized dust bunnies under my bed, but the owner was deeply offended that I disparaged her childhood home and her "blessed" mother. Yes, her mum left muffins for us, and fresh flowers, even gave us a few coffee beans; I thank her for that. This may be someone's idea of a home away from home, but it's definitely not mine. I didn't find it "cute" or "quaint," just uncomfortable. (Nice collection of books, though.) If you're in a service industry, treat it like a business, and don't get personally insulted by criticism; it's not professional. Whatever happened to "the customer is always right"? The owner threatened to keep our security deposit because of the "strange and disgusting" way we left the place. It's their job to clean their property, and this is the first time in many, many years of travel that we've ever had something like this said to us. I would not recommend this place to anyone I liked.

We had a great stay. We live in Oregon, but we were staying in Portland for our daughters wedding that week-end. It was a nice quiet neighborhood. Close to the airport. Nice and clean. No TV, but we weren't there long enough to watch it. We would definitely stay here again.

There were five of us and plenty of room. We were not in Portland for sightseeing but rather to celebrate Christmas with our grandtreasure, Chloe and this house was perfect for that. Karin, the property manager was wonderful. The only drawbacks were somewhat difficult access to the basement and inability to maintain a steady level of heat in the home. Regardless, we had a wonderful stay and considered this rental well worth the price.

We had six adults and there was plenty of room without us stepping over each other. Karin left pastries, coffee, and orange juice for our arrival. And there were beautiful cut flowers around the house in addition to all the plants.

The beds and sofas were comfortable. The kitchen was fun to cook in. There was also plenty to read and so many lovely pieces of art to look at.
