Why Nicci Driscoll chose Portland

It's cozy, quiet, clean and super comfy. Stocked with lots of local treats and local art. Lots of Privacy and close to so many great things!

What makes this apartment unique

All though the space is small(er) it was designed by one of Portland's finest Contemporary designers, Kenneth B. Wright of Rocketworks Industry. It is functional and modern accented with a whole lot of Portland charm. A must see and must stay!

Clean and fun to look at!

The casita was a wonderful choice instead of a hotel. Was clean and comfortable. It had great interesting decor. Will def be back next year if its available. Was also in a nice quiet neighborhood that we felt safe in.

A comfortable and colorful home base for our Portland adventure.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed in this colorful backyard casita with lots of artistic touches. Our host checked in to make sure we found our way and provided guidance on things to see with kids in the neighborhood and choosing a cafe to visit. The Sellwood and Westmoreland commercial districts were an easy 10 minute drive. Our daughter enjoyed separate small kids bedroom with trundle bed, leaf canopy, and star/moon themed night lights - quote, "best room ever".

Highly recommend the casita.

  • 5 of 5

We were here from California for three nights with our two teenage daughters looking at colleges and the casita was great. It is really comfortable and homey. The cold IPA in the frig for our arrival was a well appreciated nice touch. Nicci is supper cool and helpful while providing all the privacy one would want.

Cozy and Cute!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from staying in The Casita for two days and had a wonderful experience. The location was great, the wood burning fireplace was amazing, and the furniture was comfortable. The full kitchen was well stocked as was the bathroom. We would recommend The Casita based on it's charm and coziness alone, but what really took The Casita to the next level was Nicci, who was an outstanding hostess. She provided everything we could have asked for (firewood, firestarters, chocolate, coffee, etc.) and was incredibly friendly and responsive. She gave us great restaurant and bar recommendations and was welcoming but also gave us our space.

We highly recommend The Casita and can't wait to visit Portland again!

Delightful Portland Pad

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in town for a four-day weekend to visit our son who attends Lewis and Clark College. The apartment was a perfect balance of funky artsy objects and mid-century design and a quiet cozy get away with its own private meditation patio/garden in the back. The hospitality touches were amazing, including a complimentary candybar, apples, coffee/tea and more. And the location was very convenient for getting around either side of the river. We agree with all of the positive comments in the other reviews and we look forward to being able to stay here again.

The casita is nestled in charming Eastmoreland and close to so many Portland attractions. The casita is stocked with lots of information on all the desirable tourist attractions and " the insiders guide " to Portland. If there is anything you need just let me know and I can arrange it for you!

It looks as if it's going to be a hot summer here in Portland. We do have air conditioning in the casita.
