On the Streetcar Line
Please respect my home and my neighbors:
I really enjoyed staying in her room. The room is not big but very convenient to me, with big kitchen, bathtub, king side bed, wi-fi,TV, and so on. Also neighborhood have very good places, I like to go to 21st and Pearl District by walk. Olivia is very kind to me. Thank you very much.
Great place, was perfect for what I needed. The surrounding area had lots going on and easy walking access to downtown.
I stayed at Olivia’s condo for approx. 1 month. The condo is clean, tidy and cosy.
The kitchen is big for size of the condo and it was stocked with some essential dry food. Olivia and partner were helpful in making sure my stay is comfortable and enjoyable.
Neighbours in the apartment block are polite and friendly.
The condo is located in Pearl district with lots of vintage shops to explore. The condo is within walking distance (If you like walking) to the Rose Garden, Powell Bookshop and Down-town Portland.
I would stay in this homely condo again.
Great location! Cool stuff in any direction. Streetcar right there.
Also apartment is clean and kitchen well equipped.
Allow me to explain why I gave this cute little pad four stars rather than five. First, this is a wonderful little apt, and Olivia had everything in place to make it a lovely stay... Everything was great, including the bed, the kitchen appliances, and the atmosphere. BUT, we had two problems that made us depart before our stay was completed:
-- not her fault at all was a heat wave that rarely hits this area! The apt had no air conditioning -- unbearably hot!!! To make it worse,
-- the apt is on the ground floor and due to no screens and insects coming in, we could not open windows, except in the kitchen for very short periods. It was HOT, HOT, HOT!!
If it were not for that, the apt was absolutely wonderful, clean, a great location! Just don't go near this place in the summer.
What a great location! Walk to restaurants, shops, bars. Olivia was a wonderful host.
Terrific apartment in great location! Olivia is very sweet and friendly; communicates quickly and thoroughly. Her place is super clean and full kitchen great for breakfasts or other meals. Olivia's place is close to several good restaurants we walked to: Bent Brick [gourmet, house made sausages], Cafe Nell's [awesome burger], Soratta's [delicious Italian. Try the wild boar pizza for lunch if on the menu]. Easy access to trolley and downtown. Only downside: you are right next to the front entrance the door bangs quite loudly every time someone goes in and out. Our 2.5 year-old daughter slept through it, naps and all night, but if you are a light sleeper be aware. Otherwise, we were very comfortable in this apartment and had a wonderful time in Portland! Would highly recommend staying here.
