Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We enjoyed our stay at Carolyn's. She is sweet and accommodating.
    Our bedroom was simply perfect and our bathroom was clean and always available. There is plenty of parking on the street. We were mostly out on a spiritual retreat so we didn't use the kitchen, but Carolyn let us know that we could cook anytime. We met her roommate, her boyfriend and her daughter -- they were all very nice. Thank you for a lovely stay!

  • I feel like I say the same thing over and over again. Carolyn is the best. I receive the same impeccable experience every time. Super-accommodating to my erratic arrival times. She leaves a light on for me which is very welcoming. The house is immaculate. The bathroom is spotless with fresh towels are always ready. The room is perfect with a desk which is perfect for me. The bed has a very comfortable memory foam topping. The sheets and pillows are the best. She has a couple of hangers in the closet. Again, perfect to hang few clothes. She has an iron and ironing board in the closet which I don't use every time, but is nice to know it is there. Because of our schedules, we don't see each other much, but when we do it is very friendly. She communicates any idiosyncrasies about the house which are few. I feel spoiled and she has set a very high bar if I ever stay at another airbnb.

  • We found Carolyn's place very accommodating. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. She could give us a lot us tipps, what to do.
    You can reach her place within ~35-40 minutes from downtown Portland.
    Thanks again for hosting us :)

  • I flew into Portland late (and then my luggage was misrouted--more delay!) but Carolyn was very accommodating about my late arrival.

    Her house is charming and spacious, on a quiet street with easy street parking. The guest room and private guest bath were comfortable and spotlessly clean, and the bed has an amazing memory foam mattress that practically guarantees a good night's sleep. I enjoyed my stay, and would definitely return the next time I'm in Portland.

  • A longer stay than usual just because of my work schecule and though I did not see much of Carolyn (again because of my schedule) the communication and friendly atmosphere was just as great as ever!!

  • Hi all Carolyn is one of the reasons Airbnb works, she has a welcoming, warm, engaged or quite, clean place to stay and in Portland the location is great to hit Mt. Hood, Clackamas or 10 mins from the busy of downtown. it is always great to know that this neighborhood is safe! Carolyn is a great host and anyone staying will have a great experience!

  • This is my first Airbnb experience and I love it! What I was most apprehensive about was the whole idea of living in a stranger's place... wouldn't it be awkward? But it wasn't! Carolyn and Ray were friendly and open, but happy to leave us be. We were welcomed to come in and out anytime. Left with the feeling that we should have stayed longer. And the price couldn't be beat. Thanks Carolyn and Ray!

    Oh and to echo other reviews: Bed was amazing.

  • Great experience in Ray and Carolyn's house. We were well satisfied with the bedroom especially for the extremely comfortable futon. The bathroom was very clean and spacious. The sweet couple were welcoming and gave us enough privacy. Although we didn't have much time to communicate, Ray still gave us lots of recommendations regard to my 'crazy shopping' in Portland. The only downside was the neighborhood was a little bit noisy, but it didn't affect our sleeping. Highly recommend!

I am a funloving woman who enjoys meeting and getting to know new people. I work a split-shift for the local school district so am in and out of the house throughout the day. I don't have pets so that I can pick up and go whenever the mood strikes. I like simple, clean food and good music, especially good dance music. Non-smoking, I do enjoy a glass of wine from time to time. I like to read and watch a little TV, workout on my Nordic Trak skier and spend time with my boyfriend. I also enjoy origami, knitting and crocheting and stained glass art. I have a 15 year old daughter but only have guests when she is with her father, every other week. This makes for a more private and roomy experience for you!
