It was amazing! Perfect! I fell in love with Portland and thanks to this cute bungalow and felt right at home!! So cozy and quiet! Thanks you!
The stay was enjoyable, and Colin made us feel welcome. The guest house is small and cozy but comfortable. The garden outside is a work of art, very beautiful. The neighborhood is great - walking distance to many restaurants, stores, and sights.
We LOVED the garden suite - or "mini house" as we liked to call it! It was such a fun getaway and a cute and unique place to stay. We'd stay here again for sure. The house was exactly as it was described online and better than we expected. It is very small - the bed and couch are one in the same - but that added to its charm. The shower was very nice and the kitchen was well-equipped with pots, pans, spices, cooking spray, coffee, etc. Colin was an excellent host as well! He was responsive to all of our questions and very accommodating. He let us use the washer and dryer even, which was super helpful. My only suggestion would be to add an overhead/ceiling fan. I think that might help with the air-flow during the hot, summer months.
The hosts were great. Gave us great information on the area and the home. We loved the neighborhood and accessibility to the highways, restaurants (walking distance to many), etc. The tiny home was beautiful and the bed quite comfortable. So much better than a hotel stay!
Our Host was friendly & accommodating- house was welcoming. Garden Oasis is a cute small guest house, perfect for our short stay in Portland. Great location & we were able to walk to a couple of Mom & Pop places. The guest house design look was great & very private.
Colin' and Medina's guest house was absolutely lovely. It was in a cute neighborhood, a five minute walk to the nearest coffee shops and restaurants, and a ten minute walk to the bustling Alberta St. However, inside the gated backyard, in the guest house, it felt like a completely private retreat. I would definitely recommend this spot to stay in Portland, but be aware that it is very small! It is as comfortable as it could be for such a small space, but it really is best if you plan to spend most of your time out and about in the city (not a problem for us).
We stayed for ten days and had a great experience. The little cottage house was quiant and comfortable even during some hot summer days. It is in easy walking distance to several great neighborhoods. It felt private and safe. Colin was quick to answer our questions and was great host. We will definitely consider staying again during future trips to Portland.

About the Host, Colin And Medina
The Guest House was inspired by many years of traveling and living in different parts of the world with a backpack or in a camper van. I wanted to create something that reminded me of a bungalow in Bali or a bamboo hut in Thailand and also design a small space that functions well. We still travel often and are currently restoring a cottage in France
