Tami was an excellent host. She provided information about the loft and the neighborhood. Her description of the loft was completely accurate and we had a great time staying there. That horse was a fun sculpture to have in the living area and her kitchen was very well equipped and easy to use. She even had great cookbooks. We would recommend this loft and The Pearl was a fun area to be in.
The host canceled this reservation 145 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Tami was away out of the country but had sent us detailed notes on how to get into the apartment, what problems we might experience with obtaining the key and how to get around that, what all was in the apartment and how to use them. She also left detailed notes on what restaurants and bakeries/coffee shops were available in the neighborhood, which was quite useful. There were also several maps and information briefings on the lounge table which helped us get around. My husband's comment was, "this is a very organised young lady". The only things that were not covered in the notes was on what to do if we accidentally pressed the wrong buttons on the TV remote. And how to use the shower in the upstairs bathroom. But this was soon resolved as we were able to get hold of Tami and get her responses on the few (minor) problems we had. A concern for us was that the neighborhood had a lot of homeless people around, but this is clearly not something Tami has any control over and is a social comment on what's happening in Portland. One just needs to be aware of this phenomenon. What was fantastic however about the location was the easy access to the City center and to transport on the Max or the trams. We found its location to be very convenient for us for getting around.
Tami's place was a wonderful home base for us. The loft was even better than advertised, filled with light and art, and we particularly enjoyed that well-stocked kitchen! What a great entertaining space! We shopped at the farmers market on the university campus and cooked many of our meals, but the proximity to so many incredible restaurants made it all too easy to go out for happy hour and other meals/late night snacks/small bites/dessert as well. My husband and I each took home 5 extra Portland pounds despite the fact that the loft's location on the edge of Pearl made it easy to walk and bike to wherever we wanted to go.
Tami's suggestions and detailed instructions were helpful, and we will keep her suggested activity and restaurant list for use w/ our next visit to Portland.
We also appreciated the safety features (limited access to building, the coded outside entry, etc) and the watchful but friendly residents there.
This was a perfect Airbnb experience! Tami's loft is gorgeous and she was an extremely thoughtful host. The loft is in a great location and extremely convenient for all the cafes and restaurants of the Pearl district. It was also easy to get to other parts of Portland from there by foot, tram or light rail. The loft itself is fabulous - it's light, bright and airy, full of great art, and has an enormous deck running the length of the space. Up there at tree top level, we loved the views of the steel bridge, and just wished we had had more sunshine for sitting out enjoying it. The building itself felt safe and secure, and the neighbours we met were all lovely and friendly.
The best part of Airbnb is feeling like you are living in a place rather than just visiting, and Tami had made every effort to make us feel at home. She had left us detailed notes of her favourite cafes and restaurants, and we liked her recommendations! We took classes at a local yoga studio, Yoga Pearl, and by the end of the week felt extremely relaxed. Portland has a reputation for being a very liveable city, and spending a week in Tami's loft made us understand why. Many, many thanks, Tami!
Tami's loft is one of the greatest finds of my Airbnb travels!
Communication with Tami and her neighbor, Charlotte, was prompt and helpful and although we did not meet, I felt reassured that they were just a call away! Tami also gives a wonderful neighborhood guide and we loved her suggestions of cafes and restaurants in the area - don't miss out!
The loft is perfectly located within the Pearl - within walking/biking distance to everything. The loft is well-appointed and lavish with luxury design, a fully stocked kitchen, and absolutely the most comfortable bed and bedding my husband and I have ever slept on! There is space to spread out, to enjoy nature (the views! the terrace!), to exercise (there's a treadmill! and two bikes!), to work (desk overlooking the rooftops and Steel bridge!), or just to lay back and watch TV (but you're in Portland so why would you!?) If you're spending an extended stay or even a long weekend in Portland, do NOT pass up the chance to stay here if its available! My husband and I will most definitely be back and in effect, wish we could just live there!
The apartment was great! It had everything we needed for a week stay in Portland. It was in a great location and everything was within easy walking distance. Would definitely stay here again when we are back in Portland.
Spacious and quiet. Lovely spot. Nice neighborhood. Host Tami is helpful and responsive.
Tami was a phenomenal host! She was super communicative, flexible, and friendly. Her loft exceeded even my outsized expectations; she's got a perfect set up. This is one of the nicest Airbnb's I've ever stayed in and won't hesitate to book with her again next time I'm in Portland. Thanks Tami!!
Tami's loft was dreamy!! The loft will blow your mind. Book with confidence! I traveled solo on this trip & felt right at home. Super secure! Neighbors were so nice. Loved watching the weather twist & turn into sunny days from the abundance of windows in the mornings. An adventuress, this space was perfect for exploring the best of Portland! I was there for work and a short walk or bike ride to the office every day. Highly recommend!! Would stay again an a heartbeat!!
Definitely wonderful guests!!We had the pleasure to welcome Tami and 2 friends of hers in our flat during 4 days while visiting Paris. Communication was fluent and check-in was easy. They left my flat in exactly the same conditions as they found it , very respectful of personal belongings. Tami is a reliable and a trustworthy guest, highly recommended to other Airbnb guest.
Tami and her group was very thoughtful and respectful of our property. we would highly recommend Tami at anyone's property.
Excellent Tami. It was a pleasure to have her. We recommend her.
