Taizz is a warm, bright, joyful and adventurous person and host. I felt very comfortable in her home. Taizz was open and generous in sharing her considerable knowledge about the Portland area and about green living. I stayed four days with Taizz and her sweet dog and cat as a part of a trip that included visits to Houston, Portland, San Francisco and Yosemite National Park. I'm very thankful that my first Airbnb experience was a stay at Taizz's home! I enjoyed my stay and I would happily stay again! Thank you, Taizz!
Blues,brews,and bicycle guesthouse
Taizz was a great hostess! I really enjoyed staying with her and her incredibly sweet dog and cat. She really helped me understand how to get around Portland (she lives a 3-5 minute walk from the bus stop!), provided many ways of making coffee (including my favorite, pour over), and gave lots of breakfast options. She also recommended some great places to eat. Her house is very nice, her kitchen is open and accessible, and the room I stayed in was very nice, with lots of room for all of my stuff. I would highly recommend staying with Taizz!
Taizz is awesome. She knows a lot of fun stuff to do in Portland and all the good beer spots. Her house is great and even her pets are fun. I stayed in her house for a little over a month and had a great time and always felt welcome. You should probably come and stay with her.
My favorite place in Portland. Every time I feel very comfortable at Taizz's place.
She is so friendly, fun, kind, bright person - words are not enough to tell.
Just saying thank you is not enough. I'm very thankful, ありがとう(arigato)
I cannot speak highly enough about Taizz and my month stay with her. My mother and I drove over 3000 miles across country and immediately felt welcomed when stepping through the door. That vibe continued my entire stay :-). I felt at home , and Taizz is very knowledgable about her neighborhood and the city of portland as a whole. I would recommend a stay with her to anyone wanting to see what Portland is truly about !
After driving 3000 miles I was so grateful to have a warm, peaceful, and inviting home to stay. Taizz was a great host along with her dog and kitty. I would recommend Taizz's home without a doubt. Taizz gave me a warm feeling the minute I met her . Hope to go back and enjoy the gardens in the yard!!
Wonderful place to stay in Portland. Taizz was a gracious host filled with information on the city. Easily accessible to downtown Portland Would highly recommend this for any travelers passing through. The description was accurate and as were all reviews.
My stay with Taizz was everything I hoped for.She made my solo trip to Portland both comfortable and welcoming. She answered every question she could and went out of her way to guide me in the right direction for both walking and riding the bus. The Misssissipi District was an easy walk for food and shopping, as well as the Alberta District and Downtown for busing. I knew I could have easily ridden a bike as well, and plan to do so next time.I can't thank her enough nor recommend any higher her lovely home..
I was accepted to a 2 month internship in the North West area and was looking for a safe, warm, clean, friendly and convenient place to stay. Taizz's home met all these requirements and more. I knew being in Portland from October to December, it would be wet and cold. One of the nicest things about returning home from work, was having a cozy place and a hot shower to come back to. There is a personal heater in the room so you can control the temperature to your liking and the bed is super comfy. I had 3 huge drawers/rollable clothes rack to store my clothes, a tiny desk/chair to work on, a full length mirror and a book shelf full of interesting books to read/flip through. Even with 3 people sharing the bathroom upstairs, there was never an issue. We were open to use the bathroom downstairs as well but I never had to. Taizz also has an amazing kitchen to cook in. We were given pantry and fridge space to store our own food. We were free to use her pots, pans, plates, utensils, spices, tupperware, etc. Public transportation (my primary method to get to work) was super convenient. The MAX Yellow line is only a 10 minute walk and the 35/72 Bus is a few minutes walk away...great for getting to work and exploring Portland! Taizz's dog and cat are really friendly and leave you alone for the most part. As for Taizz herself, she is wonderful, caring, funny, smart, generous and easy to talk to. Being a foodie and outdoor person myself, Taizz recommended plenty of yummy places to eat and fun places to explore. My positive experience working in Portland is largely due to having a great host/housemates and a great place to stay in.
Response from Taizz:
Lisa, I am so glad you chose this place to stay- you are always welcome here!
My experience during my stay was nothing short of amazing! I needed a place to stay for a two month internship, and Taizz's home was in a great location and had everything for me to be comfortable and worry free. I stayed in one of the coziest rooms I'd ever been in, could cook with ease in her lovely kitchen, and the entire house was always kept clean and inviting. Taizz is a wonderful host who was also so kind and accommodating in making sure I had everything I needed and was a delight to chat with and get to know. Her pets are also the sweetest!
I spent weekends exploring Portland with a fellow intern also staying with Taizz, and we had so much fun getting to know the city and eating our way around town--often from Taizz's expert suggestions. If you are looking for a true Portland experience be it for a short or long term stay, I can't imagine a better place to stay than Taizz's house! I miss it already and can't wait to come back.
