We enjoyed our stay here. We only crossed paths with the host Darin briefly but he provided some great local recommendations and tips. The studio itself is clean, and accommodating for a couple. We didn't the shared space but the house is well laid out and has a beautiful backyard area.
Our hosts were very welcoming. The suite was quite cozy and well-appointed. The bed was dreamy. The location makes it easy to get to downtown Portland. Altogether, it was a good experience.
This was a immaculate, spacious room–almost 2 rooms with an archway separation—in a lovely house with a beautiful fenced in yard/garden. It was cool and airy, even in nearly 100 degree weather!! The bathroom was the next door in the hall, but it felt very private and almost like an en suite. Erin and Darin were generous, helpful, welcoming hosts. The location was almost perfect for me; within walking distance to my daughter's house and within blocks of a coffee house and restaurants. A lovely little neighborhood!
We enjoyed our stay at the Brooklyn B&B. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable, and the keyless entry is wonderful! Darin was very helpful with information regarding the various Portland neighborhoods.
A friend and I stayed in Portland for 5 nights with Darin and Erin and had a great time!
The house is in a very nice residential area which is close to restaurants and other amenities.
We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious the room was! The bed was also very large and comfortable. The space was clean and comfortable.
The hosts were super friendly and accommodating. The keyless entry was extremely convenient as well. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a reasonably priced and comfortable place to stay in Portland!
We had a fabulous time in Portland! Darin and Erin's place is better than the pictures provided. It's spacious, clean, and beautiful. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to meet as they were away on vacation. They were super accommodating and provided us with a couple things we requested prior to our arrival. We loved the keyless entry, mini fridge, the private dining table, the backyard lights are amazing! Their place is minutes away from downtown and the trendy SE Division neighborhood. If we visit, we'll be coming back here again. Thank you both so much for this wonderful experience!
Darin and Erin were a pleasure to stay with. Very clean and perfect space for my travels in Portland. Would stay with them again !!
