Taizz is a lovely host. Very flexible when my train was delayed. Very knowledgeable about the area, has lots of suggestions. The house is a very lovely, spacious older Craftsman-style two-story on a lot with a lot of trees and a hammock. Taizz had two other longer term guests while I was there who were also great. The place has an open, friendly communal vibe that made me really feel like I was experiencing Portland.
Public Transportation is a 5 minute walk away. Zipcars not much further and a bunch of great bars and restaurants within 10 minutes.
Having bikes available for rent is a real plus. I'm 6'3" and there was even one that fit me.
We are even getting Uber soon!
Taizz's house is a fantastic place. There's amazing cooking, homemade kombucha, and food for the garden up for grabs; great tunes to hear, if you're interested; a dog and cat I grew to love; and Taizz herself, who is the coolest and nicest.
The room I stayed in was beautiful and spacious with lovely furnishings and a cool view of the forest over Northwest Portland in the distance.
If you'll be looking to get downtown (either east or west/Pearl District) from here, the public transport commute is about 10 minutes shorter than (website hidden) Maps says it will be. There's an easy, well-maintained footpath that gets you from the house to TriMet bus stops 2201 and 2202 in three minutes.
In summary: a wonderful place.
Taizz is great.
Everything is nice, comfotable and very homey. It feels like home away from home. Highly recommended for people who will be cooking. The kitchen is great and very well equipped. The location is also very good and the neighborhood is nice and quiet. I will stay there next time I come to PDX for sure.
Thanks for staying here and being such a great guest- appreciate the feedback!
Taizz is one of the sweetest and welcoming people you can meet. I actually found it unfortunate that I couldn't spend more time hanging out with her. Her house is comfortable, and of the 3 nights I stayed there, I got quality sleep for 3 nights. She has such a youthful energy and soul, and her house exemplifies that in a cozy, unpretentious, and down-to-earth kind of way. As a single gal, I felt a bit cautious walking around the neighborhood since it's a 12-15 minute walk to the train or bus, but I always got back unscarred.
Next time you come I will give you a proper tour - N Portland rules!
Great monthly stay! Everything as advertised. (Excellent homemade Kombucha). Taizz was a wonderful host; a delight to talk with as well. She believes in respecting the privacy of her guest(s) and manages her home with integrity and fairness. Say "hi" to Leela for me.
You are always .welcome here!
Taizz took extra time to make sure I had the bus routes to OHSU and the grocery store. Full of very useful information!
Taizz was great. She was gracious, respectful of my space and time, and fair. Even though my trip became more business than pleasure, I felt at home throughout my stay, with a very comfortable room and bed to return to every evening, and a wonderful kitchen for making meals on the fly. Her hospitality made everything possible.
I had a terrific stay with Taizz. The room is spacious and comfortable, the garden is beautiful, and Taizz is super friendly and welcoming. She is full of interesting and useful tips to enjoy Portland. Highly recommended!
Taizz was very warm and helpful. She helped me with the bus system then later with biking. We went to some beer festivals, and we cooked for each other. She has a lovely home with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit growing. It was so nice to come back from a busy day at my residency and just sit in one of her hammocks.
I could know what real Portland is thanks to Taizz. She is charming, active, kind, and enjoying her life. I am sure spending time with her makes your life better. Staying in downtown is one of good options, but I recommend people who plan to visit Portland stay Taizz's house. Though I just stayed there only 1 month out of 7 months stay in Portland, I seriously think it was a good time and memorable.
