We really enjoyed our stay at Anjali's place. She communicated promptly and clearly about everything, and the listing was exactly as described/pictured online. The location is great, on a quiet neighborhood street but around the corner from a lively business district with many good shops, restaurants and bars. Also a good central location for walking to other neighborhoods. The kitchen had everything we needed, there's a nice dining area, and comfortable living room. It's not big, but it was totally adequate, cozy and didn't feel cramped for our family of four. It was quite hot while we were there so it was great that there's an AC unit in the living room.
Anjali was very responsive to my requests, and was very accommodating of my schedule. The house was in a great location, with very close proximity to the active Mississippi district. The air conditioning was such a relief during an unusually hot Portland stretch of weather. Would definitely consider staying again.
Wir hatten eine super Zeit in Portland dank der hervorragenden Unterkunft von Anjali. Anjali war immer erreichbar, sehr hilfreich und entgegenkommend. Außerdem haben wir uns sehr nett mit ihr unterhalten und viel über Portland und das Viertel in dem sie lebt erfahren.
Wir hatten das Appartment im Souterrain des Hauses. Es liegt nur halb unter der Erde und hatte daher viel Tageslicht. Außerdem war es angenehm kühl (bei 30 Grad C draußen). Das Appartement ist sehr gut ausgestattet, alles war so wie auf airbnb beschrieben. Besonders gefallen hat uns, dass wir auch die Waschmaschine und den Trockner benutzen konnten. Wir haben zu viert in der Wohnung übernachtet und hatten genug Platz, Anjali hat sogar noch eine zusätzliche Matratze zur Verfügung gestellt.
Besonders schön war, dass wir den Garten mitnutzen konnten. Es gibt Stühle und einen Tisch mit Sonnenschirm, wir haben immer nur draußen gegessen. Außerdem konnten wir den Grill mit Zubehör für ein BBQ benutzen.
Die Wohnung liegt nur eine Querstraße von einer schönen (und hippen) Einkaufsstraße mit vielen kleinen Läden und Bars entfernt (siehe "Put a bird on it" bei Portlandia). Allein dort kann man einen ganzen Tag verbringen, shoppen, trinken, essen. Nach Downtown ist es nicht weit, 10 min mit dem Auto. Wir sind sogar ein mal zu Fuß gegangen = 30 Minuten.
Insgesamt eine super airbnb Erfahrung!
Here's Googles translation: We had a great time in Portland thanks to the excellent accommodation of Anjali. Anjali was always available, very helpful and accommodating. In addition, we were very nice to chat with her and a lot about Portland and the district in which she lives. We had apartment terran of house. it's only half below ground and therefore had plenty of natural light. In addition, it was pleasantly cool (30 degrees C outside). The apartment is very well equipped, everything was as described on Airbnb. We especially liked that we could use the washing machine and dryer. We have four stayed in the apartment and had plenty of room, Anjali has even provided an extra mattress available. It was particularly nice that we were able to allowed to use the garden. There are chairs and a table with umbrella, we have only ever eaten there. In addition, we were able to use the grill with accessories for a BBQ. The apartment is located less than one block from a beautiful (and hip) shopping street with many small shops and bars, Mississippi Av. (see "Put a bird on it" in Portlandia). Only there you can spend a whole day shopping, drinking, eating. Dowtown is not far away, 10 minutes by car. We even once walked = 30 minutes. Overall, a super Airbnb experience! ":
My 3 year old daughter and I had a lovely stay with Anjali. She was a gracious host, and her kindness made it feel more like staying with family. She was always helpful, and available when needed, but never overzealous. It's a very cozy, and comfortable space, that feels like a truly authentic Portland home, complete with everything you need. Of course the location and neighborhood is fantastic. The street has lots of beautiful trees, and you're only a block away from great restaurants, shops and night life, on Mississippi Street.
Anjali's place is in one of the best neighborhoods in Portland. My friends (who I booked the place for) had a great time there and Anjali was an excellent hostess. Highly recommended!
Anjali met us at the house at the exact time we agreed on. She was very friendly and welcoming. She made sure we knew where everything was.
Great access to Mississippi Street - 1 block away.
The listing was as posted and the house was comfortable.
What a rad little place to call home during your visit in Portland! The house was better than described, super clean and tidy, with everything we needed for our stay. There was a great backyard area with a garden and plenty of seating for a few friends to hang out.
The best part of this house, however, is its unbelievable location! Literally a 30 second walk to Mississippi Ave, where there are tons of great shops, bars, restaurants, and coffee shops. Could not have been in a better spot.
The owner Anjali was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and made sure we felt right at home.
Highly, highly recommended, I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

About the Host, Anjali
I have such a great time hosting people from all over the world. It's like traveling while staying at home!
What's important to me as a host is that people get the most out of their stay here. Having lived here quite awhile, I am a font of info in a wide array of interests.
I love it when people feel at-home, playful and relaxed. And to see it in action, what more could a host want? For example, a guest wrote in chalk on the sidewalk in front of the house a little road map to my house and pointed to house "Paradise" How fun is that?
As a nano-bio,I am an artist, performer, RN-PhD, investor, entrepreneur, published author, host. mother, and GRAND mother. I love life and love creative expression.
Currently, my focus is upon multi-month leases, though short term stays are also graciously invited!
My property, "Mississippi Fun District", is great place to be in Portland with eats, treats and beats right around the corner. Home is secluded, yet in the middle of it all. Easy to zip around town via walk, bike, bus, light-rail, car.
My rentals are in a duplex, therefore in same building. Same address. When I am not traveling, I spend much of my time in the sunroom attached to the back end of the house and in the art studio at the back end of the property.
My raised beds grow food year around. I am part of collective that share crops. 50% of produce is shared with volunteers and a local Soup Kitchen. You may meet volunteer gardeners and pick up some gardening tips for your own garden!
I look forward to your stay here for your future travel plans to Portland!
