We had a really nice stay. It is a beautiful house and a very comfortable bed.
We had just an amazing experience staying at Maria & Oliver's place. The house is lovely and the private room & bathroom were perfect for our stay. Arranging everything with Lina was a breeze - we will definitely come back and stay next time we visit Portland!
This darling place is a little room in a new house. Great colors and decor! The hostess was very pleasant and eager to provide us a great experience. We had a slight problem with other visitors using our private bathroom, but that was not her fault. The neighborhood is pretty and you are near lots of cool shops and restaurants.
We got into town sooner than expected and the hosts were very accommodating. We got there when they were leaving but they left us the key. Everything was well marked and clean. This was our first airbnb experience and a wonderful one! The bed was like sleeping on clouds, the fans kept us cool and the shower and bathroom were great. The location was close to everything we wanted to do. Very happy!
Maria was very welcoming and showed us around our area. The room was clean, comfortable, and as described. We had our own bathroom, which was nice and made our stay feel even more private. 100% would stay again. The area of Portland ended up being our favorite and it was easy to walk and ride bikes from the house. Maria made accommodations so we could lock up our rented bikes and was super cool about it. The person I went with was unsure about renting a room using this service and after the first night he mentioned several times was a great value it was to stay in a nice room so close to what we wanted to do!
This place was exactly like advertised. Really great for the price! The place is SO clean and Lina was super friendly. The bed was so so comfy. It was like staying at a nice hotel room inside of an awesome Portland house. Cool neighborhood. All in all, awesome stay. Thanks for the great night sleep! :)
The hostess was great at communicating via text and super helpful in getting me & my spouse settled. The room was nice, not big, but enough for 3 suitcases & 2 people and the bed was SUPER comfortable. I never ended up meeting the hostess in person, but she let us use what we needed & helped us being as newbies in Portland. Parking is available on the road, though it is sparse we always got a space. Alberta Road has a variety of shops & places to eat within walking distance. The bedroom & bathroom were right by the door, so we could get in and out very easily which was also a plus.
