This is a nice private space. There is room to spread out and have some downtime when you aren't exploring Portland and the surrounding areas.
If you are traveling by bicycle, we have a covered outside area to lock them up and it is accessible using the same key as the rental.
Besides the private apartment, guests have access to an outdoor eating area in the front yard. It is available from 8 am to 7:30 pm during the school year and 8:30 pm in the summer.
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 all the time. We are usually around the entire stay, but will let you know if we plan to do a short trip to the beach.
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.
No smoking please.
What a charming apartment! Close enough to drive to lots of great restaurants/cafes and downtown Portland. We didn't want to leave. It's a steal for the amount of space and privacy.
My host was great. Here and her husband made us feel very comfortable. It was very easy to get everywhere we wanted to go.
Sarah answered all of our questions with quick and descriptive replies when we were looking at her basement apartment before renting. She made us feel welcome when we arrived, and gave us some very good tips for things to do around the neighborhood. She was careful to give us all the privacy we could want. Her house is in a charming, older neighborhood of Mount Tabor. So nice to come home to after being in downtown Portland for the day. The apartment was sparkling clean and had every amenity for convenience you could think of. Tea, coffee and chocolates were a nice touch. There is a coffee grinder, coffee maker and refrigerator in the kitchen. Both the bed and sleeper sofa were comfortable. My wife and I both commented on how well we slept during our stay. Mount Tabor park is close by. It is within easy walking distance and has many beautiful hiking trails. There are also many wonderful markets, bakeries and restaurants within a short bus ride. Sarah's home is a short walk to the number 4 bus line. We initially wanted to stay in downtown Portland. After a few days in Portland, we were glad that we could go home to a quiet neighborhood after a busy day in town. Our stay with Sarah exceeded our expectations and I would recommend it without hesitation.
Sarah has an awesome little basement suite. Not to far from downtown or other portland attractions. New clean and looks great. It is located in a really nice quite neighbourhood.
Complimentary wifi was nice. As well as tasty tea to relax at night and coffee to wake yourself up in the morning.
It was a great stay
This place was awesome, so much better than staying at a hotel. The apartment was furnished with everything you could need, and it also had heated floors in the bathroom(fancy). Sarah was an excellent host, warm and friendly like most people in Portland. I would definitely stay there again.
Sarah and Alex's apartment is fantastic! The space is very clean, warm and inviting! We would stay here again in a (email hidden)anks so much Sarah!
Sarah was a very gracious host, allowing us to arrive an hour earlier than expected due to arriving early in our long drive to Portland. She left us with some yummy chocolates and moved her car so that we could get our things out easily to the apartment. Room was very
comfortable, with specious area for relaxing, comfortable bed, great shower.
