Perfect Portland Paradise!~

Stayed: July 2012
My boyfriend, chiweenie, and I visited Portland for the first time to check out the Portland International Beerfest. Our stay at this apartment was wonderful! From the moment we walked in, we knew we booked the right place! From the hardwood floors and french doors, this older building was full of charm but also had modern updates and decor (the best of both worlds!). It was so clean and spacious and comfortable. Although the kitchen was fully equipped for cooking full meals, we didn't take advantage of this because we wanted to try all the different food carts and great restaurants Portland had to offer. We ate some of the most delicious meals we've ever had in Portland! The bed was very comfortable, almost too comfortable as we always tended to sleep in longer than we planned. We knew of laundry facilities in the basement, but didn't check it out because we didn't need to do any laundry (who wants to do laundry on their vacation?). But, it was nice to know it was there just in case! The weather was quite warm while we were there, however the apartment stayed cool and comfortable. There was a nice flatscreen tv with all the channels too! We stayed for 7 nights and we didn't want to leave! We were really getting used to living there. The neighbourhood, called Irvington, felt safe and was perfect for a quiet run in the morning and a nice walk in the evening. Like everywhere in Portland, this neighbourhood felt so welcoming and warm as we bumped into many friendly neighbours taking our chiweenie out for walks.
We will definitely be back! We call this apartment our Portland home and we hope to make this an annual getaway to attend the beerfest, which was such a blast! Carolyn and Ralph were so friendly and warm, not to mention they do such a great job of keeping this apartment in perfect condition. See you next year!
