Private, Clean, Comfortable and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to visit Portland because of a food network show featuring the city. Sue and Barry were the perfect hosts during our stay there this past weekend! They were eager to give us tips about the area and were available anytime we had a question (text). We're fairly independent, but it was nice to know we had backup! The one bedroom unit is immaculate and has everything that you would need during your stay. The bathroom was a good size and the shower/pressure was great! When we were chilling, there's HBO and two TVs (living room/bedroom). We love to walk and this place is in a perfect location. We walked everywhere....there wasn't enough time to check out all the restaurants , but we'll be back to visit Sue and Barry!!!

What an awesome rental - add another star!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, we were very warmly greeted by the owners, Sue & Barry, who spent a lot of time explaining the necessary information and also great suggestions as to where to go and where to eat! The apartment looks exactly like the photos - but even better! It was spacious and the warm and cozy feeling of the apartment was great! The parking space for our car was great which was just across the street in a very safe and well lit neighborhood! Can't say enough about the location of the apartment - just a block from the Westin Hotel and also near many shops and restaurants - well within a short walking distance! Another important factor concerning the apartment rental was how quiet the neighborhood is!! Great sleeps! Thank you so much - Sue & Barry!!! A. Dulce & A. Garr Bellevue, WA

The apartment is spacious and well appointed. The location is perfect for walking into town. The owners, Sue and Barry, were so nice and had lots of information about things to do and excellent recommendations on restaurants. We would love to come back in the future.

Perfect place to stay for a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Portland at the apt was perfect! The owners Sue and Barry were so warm and thoughtful- thinking of any and everything to make our stay easy and fun! The fresh bouquet of flowers being a nice extra touch. They greeted us and gave us a treasure trove of useful information -such as different walkable restaurants-along with suggested sights to see. The apt easily accommodates two people and we were there for a week. The bedroom is in the back of the house so it's nice and quiet, the kitchen is nice and well lit with natural light. The outdoor sitting area was perfect after a day of sightseeing/ eating- just chill with a book or glass of wine before dinner. (Or perhaps you are lucky enough to have a visitor-Sassy- the very friendly beautiful cat.) Also important was the feeling of the neighborhood being very safe for walking- especially at night after having dinner, etc. at the local restaurants. If we are fortunate and get back to the area- this is the first place we would check on to see their availability. A better place in Portland cannot be found!
