This was a fabulous location for us. From here it was easy to explore Portland in just the way we had hoped to--Tabor Park , the shops and east side neighborhoods around Hawthorne, Alberta, Belmont, Division--we visited them all, and also made it downtown. The house is beautiful and we were welcomed warmly by Melea and Miriam and their two charming little dogs. Melea was filled with helpful information for us, giving pointers to many nearby vegetarian friendly restaurants and bakeries (which in Portland are many!). The room and bed were comfortable, coffee in the morning, a good start to any day! This was our first airbnb experience and we mark it as a good one!
What a lovely experience! Melea & Miriam have a delightful place and they were such pleasant hosts. The location really is enviable for visiting Portland — it's very easy to get wherever you need to go via transit (which we opted to take most places even though we had a car), and there's all sorts of neat stuff within walking distance. The space itself was just right for our visit — enough room to settle in for a couple days without being too much. The super fancy bathroom and breezy back deck were especially nice. From discussing food options with Melea & Miriam to being greeted by their friendly dogs, we always felt welcome. Full marks for accuracy of the description and pleasantness of the overall experience!
Melea was welcoming, the home, room and bath were very nice and as described, and the location was perfect for attending a workshop at the Tabor (website hidden). Tabor, nearby restaurants and shops, and the two fun dogs were extras that made the stay special. My first AirBnB, experience, I'm pleased!
Melea and Miriam and their two dogs made us feel very welcome in their home. They took the time to sit down and give us suggestions for food, drinks, and shopping whenever we had questions, which we greatly appreciated since we didn't do a lot of research before the trip.
The room was comfortable, clean and nicely decorated; the Apple TV entertained us with Portlandia. The heat regulator ensured that the cold didn't get to us, and we woke up to fresh coffee every morning. Everything we needed and beyond was supplied.
The location was right in the middle of everything; nothing was further than a 10 minute drive and great eats/drinks were always close.
Miriam and Melea have a beautiful home in the Mt. Tabor area of Portland…the location was perfect! Close to bus lines and good restaurants too! The room was very comfortable and private…I did not get to use the deck due to weather and time constraints! Both owners were very welcoming and friendly. Freshly brewed coffee in the morning…and I loved their two dogs as well!! I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends visiting Portland.
Thanks, Diane! You're welcome back anytime.
This was a great spot for me. Melea and Miriam's house is charming. The house is very close to Mt Tabor which is a good place for short hikes and has a lovely view of Portland.
The location affords easy access to Portland's great public transit . One bus will take you past quirky stores and eateries on Belmont, through downtown and then on to the fashionable 23rd street. Checkout the Cheese Bar which has fabulous homemade soup, great cheese and wine and Chocolate Pot de Creme to die for.
The hosts are very welcoming. Melea went out of her way to help pick me up when I got lost in transit.
Had an amazing stay at Melea's house! Was in the perfect location for us in Portland. It was also the weekend of the Soap Box Derby which was like 5 minute drive to Mt. Tabor = Awesome. The house has a great personality and tons of room. I'd definitely want to stay here again with friends the next time we are in town.
We had a great stay at this home. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was great to work in (and great coffee-making equipment). There's coffee and cheese (!) nearby, and hundreds of books to peruse.
We loved the adorable dogs that greeted us every time we came back from a Portland adventure!
Melea and Miriam were delightful and helpful hosts!
The location was perfect for our stay. We were close to everyone and everything we wanted to be close to.
We made use of the private deck because the weather was so lovely.
The kitchen was fabulous and extremely well equipped!
The only things that weren't perfect were the street parking (crowded if we returned "home" after 9:00 PM) and the lack of light in the bathroom (not so good for applying make-up...).
We would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for your terrific review and helpful feedback. We will change the light in the bathroom for sure and add a make-up mirror. It is on our to-do list.
Melea's house was wonderful and exactly what was expected. We used it for our wedding weekend, had a family BBQ, and had our friends stay with us all weekend. It is a beautiful house with tons of amenities. We walked up to Mt Tabor for 4th of July and enjoyed the back patio and BBQ. It was wonderful! Couldn't recommend this house enough!
Short stay, nice guests, welcome back anytime.
As usual, hosting Melea was a wonderful experience. She was respectful, friendly, and very interesting. We always enjoy having her stay with us and would recommend her as a guest to any host!
Great guest, left the place clean!
Melea is obviously an experienced AirBnB'r (guest and host!). She was a lovely guest and left the house in fantastic shape.
Melea was a phenomenal guest!
We really enjoyed having her and her extremely well behaved dogs. She was kind, neat and super easy to communicate with.
I highly recommend her and her little dogs too! They left our house in fantastic condition.
Thank you very much Melea!
Great tenant I would be more than happy to host Melea again in the future. She took great care of my apartment in Vancouver.
Melea and Mirium were experienced guests who are considerate and always kept us informed. Unfortunately the darn smoke from distances away prevented a good bike ride however they made the best of it. As a host myself I hope I am as considerate and tidy as they were. Look forward to catching up when we travel your way:)
We look forward to hosting you in Portland!
I very much enjoyed Melea! A short and sweet interaction, but enough to see I'd definitely have her back! Easy going, cheerful, enthusiastic! Thanks for leaving my place tidy!
Thanks! If you ever find yourself in Portland and need a place to stay, look us up!
Melea was a great guest - left the cabin spotless, very respectful of the property and very easy to communicate with. We would be happy to host Melea again soon!
Melea & Miriam were wonderful guests and great communicators. The cabin was super clean and they went the extra mile to give us great tips for our trip to NYC. Melea and Miriam are Airbnb hosts themselves and their consideration and care showed from beginning to end. We hope to have you stay again!
