Margot was great - unfortunately we did not meet nor were we able to stay at her home because of a car malfunction, but Margot was absolutely super in helping us reschedule our stay. We'll be back !
Margot is a quality host, we were 4 person so the air bed came in handy. As others have mentioned the bed is very comfortable. Nice apartment with character.
The apartment was fine. There were problems on arrive that Margot quickly fixed. It is an old space and the paint and space show that.
It was extremely loud at night during our stay. There was no sleep to be had. There is an event space directly out side the windows. At night the apartment was lighter then the day. There we people and music until late in the night. I was unaware and very unhappy.
Wow! Audra I had no idea you were so unhappy. Indeed we have an event space downstairs and that is described in the description. The Saturday night wedding event including music, lights and guests ended by (website hidden) building was originally built in 1908 and we continue to renovate in order to preserve the vintage style. However the furnishings are all updated, I have only ever heard that people sleep very well so I am very sorry to hear you had such a mediocre stay and I hope you will have better success with Airbnb selections in the future.
The reservation was canceled 40 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Margot was a great host and the apartment was exactly as described. The location was ideal, and the bed was super comfy. I had a great stay here.
Margot was a great host and very accommodating to our needs. The location was PERFECT. We loved the neighborhood. The space out back was just great. She was immediately available by text/messaging through the Airbnb app. Great instructions. Great space. What more could you ask for! The only thing I would caution is just keeping noise down in the commons area after 10. There is a neighbor next door that doesn't take kindly to being in that area after 10 (and he will let you know about it). Likely mostly our fault but just a heads up for those with louder people in your group :)
Thanks for the notice about the neighbor. I have never heard of him before. Opal 28 is surrounded by residential apartments, as a courtesy to the neighbors quiet hours are not enforced but generally after 11pm we try to shut things down, including the event space on the main level. In any event, I am sorry that he was rude but glad you enjoyed your stay and yes I did get the keys. See you next time! Margot
Margot's place was great. Excellent location and the apartment is well furnished and equipped with everything you could need. The only minor issue we had was that there is only one heater for the entire apartment and it faces the living room. We worked around it though since Margot has a great supply of comfy blankets and it didn't cause us any real discomfort. Margot was great to communicate with, the apartment was very clean and it's right next to Pambiche which has GREAT Cuban food. Overall, I'd stay here again.

Margot returned to her Portland roots in the Fall of 2009, after spending time in both Chicago & San Francisco. With experience in marketing & events and a passion for travel and exploring, her entrepreneurial spirit opened Opal 28, an event space, accommodations and commercial kitchen. Margot has a keen sense of customer service, knowledge about Portland's must sees, and a cheerful demeanor. You are guaranteed a comfortable experience when you stay at Opal 28.
When Margot is not perfecting her business plans she enjoys playing around town with her niece & nephew, heading to the mountain to ski and cozying up at a coffee shop to read the latest magazines.
