Had a great experience in Portland staying here. We were able to find the place easily, always plenty of parking, and an easy bus ride into Portland on the 17 or up to Hawthorne on the 14. Would easily choose to stay here again.
The apartment was welcoming and the hosts were sweet in providing ice cream sandwiches to our young son. They did a nice job of informing us about the area surrounding us, the restaurants, and expectations of our stay. We loved the chickens and their hospitality.
My husband and I just had our first Air BnB experience and I'm so happy it was with Libby and Gabe! The space was comfy-cozy in a quiet neighborhood , well stocked with all the amenities and very conveniently located to Portland must sees. Be sure to read their eatery/brewery suggestion, because they are right on! If you're in doubt as to where to go or see, just ask. Lubby has the perfect suggestion:) Thanks for our Maiden Voyage, and we will return!
Cute place, as shown. Clean and a good size. Free parking right outside. Libby and Gabe are helpful hosts - left us some guidebooks for exploring the Gorge, and you'll find maps and suggestions and Portland magazines in the apartment. A quiet neighbourhood - not too much going on there, though their recommendation of a local Mexican restaurant was a good one. Easy access to downtown Portland by car (and bus, it seems). Their two lovely "senior" dogs and "the girls" (6 chickens) kept us amused! Thanks!
We were very happy with our stay at Libby and Gabe's upstairs apartment. Before our arrival, Libby responses to my questions were prompt and detailed. Her instructions for arrival were easy and clear. Once we arrived, we found Libby and Gabe to be friendly, helpful, and generous with their garden. The accommodations were comfortable, clean, quiet, and furnished with everything we needed.
We had a wonderful time staying at Libby and Gabe's. After marveling at the beautiful garden and the many chickens, we got cozy in a clean and homey apartment. It was the perfect place to enjoy some peace and get some rest during a busy weekend in Portland! We did not have the pleasure offer ting Libby and Gabe, but we would definitely stay with them again on our next trip to Portland.
Libby and Gabe were very nice and welcoming. We enjoyed talking with them and hanging out on the porch. The place was very clean and comfortable. I hope to see you all again. Thank you!
