Reenie was super welcoming and easy going! The room was cozy, comfortable, stylish, and relaxing. There was a huge sliding glass door that opened out into a beautiful zen garden where you can hang. I just LOVED the decor in the entire house. The bathroom had lots of light and the shower was gorgeous and modern. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay! Reenie made the whole experience feel like I was staying at a boutique hotel! =)
I feel like home or much better!!! The house is clean, big and with a great decoration.
The bed is so comfortable and the bathroom is always clean.
The neighborhood is safe and you have a lot of space to park on the street.
Near to Reenie´s house you have a convenience store always open.
Reenie's home was beautiful, clean, and modern - exactly as listed. The location was perfect: very close to the 72 bus line and yellow train line. We almost exclusively used public transit on our stay, so it was super convenient! The neighbors were all very friendly too! The walls are a bit thin, though, so we would sometimes hear muffled noises from the people staying below us. Overall, our stay was easy and enjoyable!
Reenie's home was lovely, exactly as described on the posting. The room is a little small, but is enough for one or two people. We didn't see much of her or interact with her much, but Reenie was accommodating. We were hoping for more interaction to learn more about the city and the neighborhoods, but we enjoyed our stay.
Reenie's home is beautiful. The room and bathroom are clean and wonderfully decorated. She allowed full access to her home but I only used it to sleep as most of the time I was out exploring Portland. It is a shared bathroom and I was concerned about that in regards to timing but our schedules were so different it was never an issue. She is very close to the 72 bus (2 blocks) which takes you to the Alberta Arts District and the yellow line (4 blocks) the train which takes you to downtown Portland. She does have a separate apartment below that she rents and the bedroom is right above their bathroom. If you are okay with hearing some slight bathroom sounds and other ambient noise from the other guests (if it's rented during your stay), this is an Excellent place to stay....made my first time to Portland memorable.
