Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband and I have heard so many great things about Portland and decided to spend a couple of days there to celebrate a milestone birthday. Without any previous airbnb experience, we really didn't know what to expect. Getting off the I-5 and navigating our way to Alleyn's cottage was easily done. Driving into the surrounding neighborhood created a lot of excitement as we couldn't stop remarking on all the beautiful homes and lovely streets. Nob Hill is a beautiful area. Alleyn's cottage is situated right behind her quaint duplex that affords privacy and serenity. The cottage is charming, cozy and clean. Very good size, with lots of windows and everything you need plus more! The bed was very comfortable and the wireless worked perfectly. It's extremely easy to get downtown, we rode our bikes everywhere and had no problems navigating our way around. Be sure to check out Smokehouse 21 on 21st, the pork cheeks were amazing. For breakfast Beesaws is the place to go, our waiter Josh was fab and the food devine. We felt really safe here and had no problems with parking, Alleyn even had a bike rack installed by her gardener while we were there to accommodate our bikes. I highly recommend Alleyn as a host and look forward to returning to Portland in the future.

  • We loved Alleyn's garden cottage! It's spacious, quiet, and charming - and in a walkable, wonderful location with many shops, restaurants, and cafes nearby. We hope to stay there on our next visit to Portland.

  • Alleyn was super friendly and helpful upon arrival! The cottage was as advertised, very comfortable and Alleyn provided tea and coffee in the kitchen should we wish it! Very convenient location, within walking distance of Forest Park and NW 23rd St. Thanks for a lovely stay!

  • We truly enjoyed our visit at Alleyn's cottage in NW Portland! The bed was very comfortable, and the cottage provided a tranquil, relaxing setting for us to unwind in after our busy days seeing the city. The cottage is very convenient to public transit, and is within walking distance of many eateries, shopping options, and nightlife. My husband and I hope to return to Portland one day, and, when we do, we hope we are able to return to Alleyn's cottage!

  • Prompt response from Alleyn. Easy check-in. Cute cottage at the back of house. Great to have a little garden space. It had all necessary amenities, although TV is quite small. Good walking distance to 23rd and 21st Ave. Overall, great stay. Thanks!

  • Alleyn made us feel very welcomed and at home in her wonderful cottage. She gave us some great suggestions as to what to see; such as the amazing rose gardens. Her cottage was very private and quiet. Had a great night's sleep! We would highly recommend staying there and hope to do so again.
    Thanks so much Alleyn!:)

  • This is a nice little cottage and its a short walk to the bus into downtown.
    Allyn is easy to communicate with and quick to answer questions and help.

  • We had a lovely stay at Alleyn's place in Portland. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed including a (very) comfy bed and coffee maker/kettle for our morning dose if caffeine. Alleyn herself was amazingly helpful, giving us tips on what to see/do and then rearranging her schedule so that we could leave our bags at her house between checking out and our train. Oh - and then of course there's the location which is perfect!

  • We had such a nice stay at Alleyn's place. It was very clean and comfortable, and it had absolutely everything we needed. And the location was so pleasant and convenient! Having never been to Portland before, we weren't sure if we'd made the right choice of neighborhood, but it turned out to be perfect. We mostly kept to ourselves during our stay, but when we did need some tips, Alleyn was very helpful.

  • This was the perfect Portland getaway. My husband and I spent 4 wonderful days in Portland and could not have asked for a better place. The cottage was very tidy and spacious, and had a very comfortable bed. Alleyn was kind and accommodating and gave us some good suggestions. Most of all, the location was THE BEST. We walked around all of Portland and could not have picked a better location to come back home to. If we go back to Portland, we will definitely stay with Alleyn again!

I live in the NW district close to the center of town because it is easily accessible from almost anywhere in Portland. Ten minutes from the airport. My great grandparents built homes in this neighborhood when it was first being developed and I have always loved this section of town. I moved to my present home in the Nob Hill district about 10 years ago. I have been an interior designer for many years. I also teach watercolor at the local community center. I can't live without the ocean (an hour and a half drive from here), the mountains (an hour's drive), the beautiful Columbia gorge (1/2 hour) and Forest Park (minutes away). I love my new Ipad mini and am learning to use it from the smart kids at the apple store. I want to adopt them. I enjoy people from all walks of life and love to travel when given the chance.
