GREAT APARTMENT in fun area!

  • 5 of 5

Two of us fit perfectly in this apartment in the Mississippi district. It was very clean, the mattress was extremely comfortable, bathroom very clean, plenty of space to lounge in the living room, nice air conditioner and the kitchen was great. Easy access to freeway and walking distance to fun Mississippi street with food trucks and unique shops. Joelle was always available via text and answered right away. I would definitely recommend this place and stay here again. We LOVE Oregon!!

Great Location and very responsive/helpful management.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this very cute rental. We found Manager, Stephanie, to be very responsive to our queries.

The unit itself is an older building with windows that need some work and quite a steep stairwell to enter but overall well maintained with higher end linen and comfortable furniture.

Pro's: Plenty of street parking. Central Location with easy access to highways. Clean and well equipped kitchen.

Cons: AC is not central but rather a stand alone unit. No Cable TV but we were happy to use our Netflix account. The unit is upstairs with heightened awareness needed for possible guests downstairs - wasn't a problem for us but something to consider if you're traveling with children and/or don't want to be concerned about making a noise.

Overall, we had a great weekend despite visiting during "record high" temperatures. Our highlights were a day trip to the coast; visiting Multnomah Falls; ice cream from "Salt and Straw"; pizza from "Apizza Scholls".

Does not Meet Expectations - Not Recommend to a Friend

  • 1 of 5

Let me begin by stating I was initially going to keep my negative comments to myself, as I had originally felt that I wouldn't recommend this place to a friend or plan a return visit, but that for the convenient location, others might find it reasonable for the price compared to a downtown Portland hotel.

However, my attitude changed when I received notification that the property manager had claimed for damage to a comforter. I find this absolutely preposterous considering that my husband and I take very great care of everything we own and do the same for others' property. We felt uncomfortable in the home due its lack of care and cleanliness. The kitchen had ants crawling across the counters, with ant poison in the cupboard being stored with dishes as well as out on the floor - something I could deal with for a weekend considering we weren't spending a great deal of time in the apartment and we washed dishes prior to use, but if I had brought children into the home I would not have found this acceptable. What if I hadn't noticed and found my 2 year old chewing on ant poison?? Unacceptable. Overall the kitchen and bathroom did not strike me as very clean, the home had a dingy smell that lingered in our clothing and suitcases when we arrived home. The linens provided were cheap and old (the shower towels were in about as good of condition as our car wash towels). There was no bathroom soap provided, and although the ad says there are toiletries, do not plan on this because there were only almost empty bottles of cheap shampoo and conditioner. also claims to have other items, such as a hairdryer and there was not one present. The furnishings were cheap / mis-matched and not very inviting or comfortable. There is barely any water pressure and this is even more minimized if the downstairs neighbors are there also using the water. At one point the sink was on full blast while my husband was attempting to shave and not a drop of water came out.

The location is great, very close to the Mississippi Ave shops, restaurants, and bars so that is about the only positive thing to say. The price is not unreasonable compared to other areas near downtown Portland but it is not great for what you get so recommend taking the time to look around.

Owner's Response: PLEASE PLEASE READ First of all thank you for taking the time to voice your disappointments while staying at my property.. I am confused by your review as you never contacted us to voice your issues while you were staying at the property. As the homeowner this is very upsetting. You stated many issues in your review that it seems that you probably should have checked out immediately. We would certainly have refunded your entire stay. Reviews are important - BUT your comfort and satisfaction are more important. Since we are not a big chain hotel, and we are on Homeaway. we treat our guests one at time and it is our intention to please. I take all our guests reviews seriously and if there is a valid point we certainly take it into consideration we do it . Also it confusing that your entire attitude changed because we filed a claim with the insurance company. Accidents happen and this is why we have our guests purchase insurance! I am so sorry about your experience and AGAIN .. for anyone reading this review if you have any problems contact us right away so that we can resolve your issues promptly, I wish all the best in your travels.

North Portland

  • 4 of 5

Great location for very quick access to I-5. Perfect size for my girlfriend and I. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Nice quite neighborhood. I normally try not complain in my reviews but parking space is at a premium especially if you have a full size vehicle. I would recommend the place for people using public transit or even small car parking might be ok.
