Interaction with Guests
We are happy to chat about Portland or your stay. Because it is a private apartment, you won't be seeing us much. We are often out and about and sometimes may do a trip to the beach just a short drive away, but we will make sure that someone is always available to answer questions and deal with any issues if they arise.
Mt. Tabor/Montavilla neighborhood is a great place to explore. You can walk to Mt. Tabor Park, The Academy Theater, coffee shops and restaurants.
We are near bus and bike routes to downtown Portland. We are just a minute walk from the #4 bus, a frequent service bus that goes downtown.
Other Things to Note
We often will arrange to leave a key for you to allow for flexible check-in times.
No smoking please.
I stayed in Sarah's lovely basement for 3 nights and the apartment ended up exceeding my expectations. It felt as though I actually rented a small apartment rather than just a private room inside of someone's home. The house was right next to the bus stop which we used conveniently every day. Sarah was extremely accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. She stocked the kitchen area with appropriate glassware, the bathroom with all the necessary toiletries - there was even heated flooring in the bathroom! The sheets on the bed were also extremely comfortable - I might even go and purchase some for myself. It was my first AirBnb experience and she definitely made it an enjoyable one. I am so excited to continue using AirBnb for future trips.
This private basement is very clean and comfortable! The bed sofa was just like a real bed! Sarah is very friendly and nice. We really enjoyed our stay here.
We felt very welcomed and well-informed with our arrival and welcome by Sarah and her husband and daughter Caitlin. Everything was great, and we loved the neighborhood.
The basement is a newly and very nicely set up and decorated place, in a quiet neighborhood. Easy access to anywhere in the city. Alex was pleasant at welcoming us. Great value for the money.
We loved staying at Sarah's private basement apartment! Sarah, was prompt in all our email interactions, warm and welcoming. The apartment was quiet, meticulously clean, modern and tastefully (email hidden)re lovely than the online pictures show! The king size bed was wonderfully comfortable and bath/beverage products were top notch. We have a special place in our hearts for the Mt. Tabor neighborhood as my husband grew up there and it's amazing. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer....Can't wait to return!
My husband, teenage son and I enjoyed 4 nights in Sarah's apartment. A very comfortable space in a great neighborhood (and very private). Sarah and her family were out of town during our stay, but she stayed in touch with us through text/email and was very attentive to our needs. Portland was having a massive heat wave during our visit, but the apartment was remarkably cool. Great stay overall and I would not hesitate to come back!
This place is great! Instead of a private room, it feels more like an apartment.
Very new, clean, high end materials, wonderful Matress and pillows.
Feels very, very clean,
Thanks for a great visit Sarah!
