The cottage was a great place to stay! We loved the location to restaurants! The private patios were so peaceful and beautifully decorated. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Adorable and fun!
Awesome Cottage - Great Location
This cottage was amazing! Centrally located to some wonderful coffee shops and restaurants. It was nice to walk and grab coffee in the morning, walk to dinner at night, have a drink at a local bar, and literally walk back all within minutes. The place was clean, decor was perfect, and overall very peaceful. I will definitely be coming back here each time I visit the area!
The transaction was easy and as promised.

House was clean, well located for exploring in all...
House was clean, well located for exploring in all directions, and had great nearby restaurants and coffee. Small backyard patio is well staged for pictures, and has simple toys and games for the kids. Any responses needed from the host were quick. Not taking any stars off for the below comments, just listing them to help the next family:1. Parents with kids younger than 5 should be aware that the stairs going up to the upper floor with the two kids beds might be a bit tricky for the little ones to come down at night for the bathroom.2. Be aware of which of the two houses on the same property you are renting. Our welcome email had the wrong house number on it, so there was some first day confusion, but no problem.
Great place to stay!!
Corey’s place was beautiful we loved it! He was very helpful and responded quickly to our inquiries. Thank you Corey!
Charming cottage with LOTS of issues
This is an older cottage that is well furnished and has charming décor. It is located in a good downtown Beaverton area, close to shops and restaurants so we enjoyed this a lot. However we had several items that were concerning. First, we had ants in the kitchen, and they were everywhere! The rental company states they were not aware, but when we arrived there were ant bait traps in the kitchen and it was well occupied. Second, we had multiple instances where the electrical circuit was tripped when using basic items in the home (lights, fireplace, etc). The electrical panel was NOT able to be accessed by us, it was a locked door in the cottage, so the rental company had to arrange to have it reset. After the second or third tripping of the breaker incident we came to realize it was being reset by other tenants on the property as they had access to this locked door off of the dinning room in our cottage. We learned this door leads to a second bathroom for the cottage that is only utilized by the surrounding "tiny houses" that are also on the property. Which brings us to third concern of property - there are multiple rentals on this site and they are all within close proximity of this cottage, within 5-10 feet. I felt this should be made clear on the description of this property and it was not. The fourth issue was with the furnace, it is centrally located in the living room and it is noisy and inefficient. The only room it heats is the small living room, so the rest of the house was miserably cold since our visit was in the middle of winter. I understand this is an older home and I appreciate the charm of maintaining the historical features, however updated windows and heating are important to maintaining a comfortable home, and this cottage had neither.
I am so sorry you couldn't find pleasure in this home when so many others have. I didn't know about the bait traps as the cleaner proactively put some down. For whatever reason, the combination in the recent weeks of wet and excessively cold weather has made many homes in the region a haven for sugar ants. I know my own personal home has had some recently when I never had before.
The breaker panel is older and on cold days when there are large draws on electricity combine with other uses it can trip. There has already been an electrician out to assess the upgrade and we are just waiting on the quote.
We try and let people know there are multiple rental properties on the site. In fact we work to disseminate that information so different group sizes can rent all or just a portion of the buildings depending on what they need.
We absolutely want every guest to feel warm and comfortable. On the coldest of days in older homes it can be a challenge. I will look into further ways in which we can accommodate this even during these extremes.
