Lina was fantastic. She was flexible with allowing us to drop our luggage off early. She lent us her bikes to explore the city. And she was always very quick to respond to our messages. The room is clean and comfortable. Thanks for the hospitality!
Great location, walked to both dinner and breakfast. Room was private, comfortable, and welcoming - just inside the front door. Very good experience.
Great, breezy stay! Very easy to check-in and very clean, comfortable accommodation. Thanks!
We only stayed for 1 night and didn't have the chance to meet Maria and Oliver but they had put sticky notes everywhere that made it very easy for us to find things. The room was clean and cozy.
Great house close to the Alberta Arts District and near Mississippi Ave shops. Lina was great with the check-in and offered us use of their bikes. Would definitely stay here again!
This was only my second AirBnB expire experience, but it was definitely the best. Plenty of street parking, beautiful house, clean private bathroom and bedroom. The hosts are wonderful and kind. Will definitely try to stay here next time I am in Portland.
It'a really comfortable and quiet place that I highly recommend in Portland. The host put label every where so each information are clear! You can get so many information such as bike route and taxi phone number in their house. It's so nice!!! Also, I like I can have my private bathroom. It made me feel private and safe for a girl travel by herself. The check in time is very flexible. The host is very friendly. I wish I can stay longer next time!!
