  • We loved staying at the Franklin St Flat. We were there with our family for the holidays. The flat was conveniently located and we loved the living area and kitchen for our Christmas celebration.
    Libby made life easy for us while not interfering.
    We would dev finitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
    Thanks to Libby... We did not meet Kerry

  • I had a delightful visit at Libby and Kerry's flat in SE Porttland. The place was very comfortable and homey! Special touches included the fresh eggs (from their Hen) in the fridge, along with english muffins, butter and orange juice. just like a B & B only better because of the greater amount of privacy in having a place all to yourself, to cook if you wish.

    Sadly, i was busy and never got a chance to meet with my hosts, Libby and Kerry but they were extremely helpful and accommodating in all email/text exchanges. I would definitely stay there again.

    Thank you!

  • We loved our time there! It was charming and extremely well appointed. Our hosts were friendly but discreet. We were close by where we wanted to be. Parking was no problem. It felt very homey, we spent one happy evening watching Netflix in the comfy living room. I would definitely stay there again.

  • My partner's and his parents stayed at the flat on a long weekend visit to Portland and they had a wonderful time. Libby and Kerry made the entire reservation and check-in process easy and smooth, and were great at communicating. The apartment itself was quite lovely and spacious, just as shown in the photographs. It was well located near Division and near much of SE Portland dining/shopping options, and they said they would gladly stay there again on future visits. Thanks Libby & Kerry!

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Libby and Kerry's flat. It's spacious, attractive and comfortable and has everything you need to feel at home. The neighborhood is beautiful and the house is within walking distance of some great restaurants. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

  • Really awesome place! When I came into the home I couldn't believe the whole place was ours. It has such a sweet kitchen and living room. The backyard is cool too with the chickens! What a lovely home! Love it!

  • We loved the flat. Nice quiet neighborhood, comfy bed and linens, Kerry and Libby were great hosts. The wifi was less than ideal (sporadic and weak), but was acceptable. Easy on street parking, and Libby and Kerry let us do laundry in the basement as needed. Nice place. We'd happily go back.

  • We had a fantastic stay at the flat. Lovely old home in a very quiet neighbourhood. The kitchen was very well stocked with equipment and goodies for breakfast. Loved the chickens and Ellington the cat. Libby was very responsive and helpful. Lots of great restaurants nearby and a good location with which to explore lots of the great neighbourhoods of Portland. Would certainly recommend to others. Very true to the pictures and posting. Thanks Libby and Kerry!

  • We had a great time while staying at the Franklin Street Flat! It was very homey and spacious, and we felt like we had a lot of privacy. We also enjoyed the neighborhood, it was an easy walk to Division Street and close to many bus lines.

Libby is an actor and massage therapist while Kerry is a visual artist and photographer.
Local Portland native meets Manhattan transplant, they fall in love, blend their family, buy a large ramshackle house, fix it up ( still working on that ), open an Aibnb and invite you to stay. We are both questioners of the dominant paradigm, love a good book, a great bottle of wine and exhilarating conversations. Gardening yes, traveling a priority, creative endeavors a must! We hope to cultivate chickens, community and comfortable accommodations for the weary, wayward and wandering travelers.
