Superbe endroit, nous vous recommandons ce AirBnb, aucun commentaire négatif et les hôtes sont très gentils, une note de 10 sur 10
The studio was even nicer in person than in the pictures. Darin and Erin were clear in their expectations. The location was very convenient and the hosts were easy-going.
Prompt and detailed communication from hosts, even on short notice, thank you! Very clean, comfortable, and quiet room - exactly as described and pictured. A very private room and bathroom, despite sharing a hallway - and an amazingly big and comfortable bed with nice bedding! We'll be back!
Our host met us and conducted a tour of the facilities explaining the details. He also researched the closing times for three local restaurants for us. The most pleasant surprise was the well stocked honor bar. In a time when it's hard to carry liquids on airplanes this filled a need, even if it was only for Sprite and V8. The only unpleasant surprise was that the gorgeous flat-screen tv didn't get local broadcast for news and weather. (this fact was listed in the write-up, but I had read too many write-ups and forgot it) The in-house wi-fi let us use our laptop for these functions. Watching DVD's before bedtime was wonderful.
A very comfortable stay in our daughter's neighborhood while we helped her move from one house to another by entertaining her two little girls - great fun for grandparents!
Our stay with Darin and Becca was perfect. They were at home to welcome us when we arrived in Portland, and the guest rooms were extremely neat and comfortable. Their recommendations for restaurants were great, and they gave us many helpful tips on how to use public transit. Several bus lines stop near their house, and it only takes 10-15 minutes to get downtown. To top it off, they were both wonderful people and it was a pleasure to meet them.
Darin and Becca were great hosts! They had excellent recommendations for good restaurants and brew pubs in the area. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and very private. We would love to make it back to Portland to stay again!
