Gina & Rene purchased this studio in 2007

Why Gina & Rene chose Portland

Because it is a small city surrounded by the ocean. Clean air, beaches nearby, culturally alive city.

Great location

  • 3 out of 5
Comfy bed and cozy setting. Would have liked to had coffee provided for at least the first night. Shower is very small. Docking station for i-pod was nice but a radio or TV would have been nice for checking local news, traffic & weather, or for watching a movie.

Owner's Response: Just a reminder Reggie, the apt is meant for retreats. We do not provide coffee or a TV for this reason. There is a coffee shop right across the street, which our guests who drink coffee appreciate. A coffee maker & caffeinated tea are provided. Most people have phones to check weather. We do have wifi. Glad you liked the location & bed. We enjoyed meeting you & your daughter.

Great location, beautiful apartment

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is everything you hope for when you book a stay online. The location was great and within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. The area is quiet and is full of beautiful historic homes. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone who needs a comfortable place to stay right in the heart of Portland.

Great stay

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely wonderful. Apt was quaint, cozy and classic. Walking distance to everything in Portland--no car needed! Cafe across the street served inexpensive! Yet outstanding (and creative) breakfast and dinners. Highly recommend for weekend getaways to Portland!

Nice Stay in Portland

  • 5 out of 5
Prana and Rene (the owners) were quite welcoming and helpful. The apartment was clean and comfortable and within short walking distance to downtown. The location was quiet which allowed for a good night's sleep. There is a small cafe across the street that serves excellent (and cheap!) breakfast. If staying in Portland again, I would definitely reserve this apartment.

boat show weekend

Had a great stay! It was a very nice quiet studio, fresh and clean. We enjoyed the close proximity to downtown and would definitely stay again! It was very nice to stay in a place that was almost like home...

Beautiful Studio Apt in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 out of 5
I can't say enough good things about the location of this apartment. It hits the mark for being close to the waterfront and downtown Portland. Our goal in Portland was to hit as many fantastic restaurants as possible in the short time we were there. All of the restaurants on our wish list were within walking distance of the Studio.
The Studio itself is adorable, we especially enjoyed the courtyard each morning. There is a Cafe right across the street to pick up your coffee.
The owners are very nice and are happy to give you their recommendations for food and activities.
My only regret is we didn't stay longer. We will definitely be back!
