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!
I recently visited my family in Portland and stayed with Melea and Miram. The house was charming and they greeted me when I arrived. Melea was very helpful and pointed out restaurants and of course places to get my coffee. I enjoyed being around Fig and Quince since I left my crew at home. I would recommend staying here and hope to do so when I return in the future. Miram makes the best cherry-strawberry preserves!
Melea's Mt. Tabor House was an ideal place for our large party to base ourselves for a weekend of graduation festivities. Comfy beds, a great kitchen set up (can't imagine you'd need any equipment that's not there), and there was lots of space for us to gather - in the living room, dining room, and the back deck. Wifi and TV were also easy to get onto and use. We loved taking walks up Mt. Tabor, just across the street, and the location was very convenient to get around Portland.
Miriam and Melea were wonderful hosts,taking the time to give me a lovely welcome to Portland and share some of their extensive local knowledge.Their beautiful home is simple to reach from the airport and is perfectly placed to explore this wonderful city.Set within a quiet leafy neighbourhood just by the bus stop to downtown it provides a wonderful base.Within minutes you can be on a beautiful forest trail on Mount Tabor or within a funky, lively neighbourhood with exceptional (website hidden) room was very private with a beautiful bathroom and a private deck to relax and enjoy the sunny Portland evenings amongst the trees.I had access to all the facilities within the house and especially liked Fig and Quince,the 2 resident friendly dogs.I would highly recommend this accommodation,thank you so much for a wonderful stay....oh yes...Great coffee too!
Melea's place provided a roomy, ultra-pleasant base of operations for a long weekend of exploring Portland. The house itself is airy, spotless, and well-equipped, and Melea was very prompt and helpful, both pre-booking and during the stay. The house is a 15 minute bus ride from downtown, but we found plenty of food/bar options within walking distance. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful stay - Melea and Miriam have thought of everything so guests can be comfortable and feel at home. Their recommendations for places to visit and eat were spot on (including a wonderful hairdresser in Southeast Portland where I got a much-needed haircut!) The house is just beautiful - stately and still comfy, and we had coffee waiting for us at the dining table in the morning. Fig and Quince are wonderful pups, too! A+ experience, and so affordable, perfect neighborhood for a hike up Mt. Tabor with views to Mt. Hood one direction and out over Portland the other. We hope to stay again on our next trip to PDX. Sweet hosts, great space.
This house is very conveniently located in the Mt Tabor neighborhood. It is a very short distant to the park. Hawthorne Blvd is a short walk and offers numerous trendy places to eat and shop. For the more active, downtown Portland is a 1 hour walk( or a 15 minute bike or bus ride).
The house is very comfortable with a very cozy fireplace. It easily sleeps 8-9 people and an equipped kitchen for family meals. I enjoyed the stay and would recommend it.
I can't recommend Melea and Miriam's place enough. The room is just as described. Very private and comfortable. Everything is very organized, simple and thought out - something many Air BnB's lack. Plus, Melea and Miriam are wonderful - great communication. Thank you again!
Response from Melea:
Thanks so much! It was delightful having you.
Great house! And great hosts! The house is large,clean and tastefully decorated. It is located in close proximity to great bars, restaurants and even the grocery store. Our large group thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Portland. Thanks Melea!
Melea and Miriam are very accommodating and respectful of privacy. Their house is beautiful; travellers are lucky to be able to experience it and their neighbourhood. Fig and Quince are also very friendly and well behaved. Our stay here was a pleasure!
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!
Melea & Miriam were wonderful guests who left the apartment in excellent condition. Thank you for staying with us and please come back any time!
Great guest, no issues, easy to communicate with. They left our place as they found it. I would not hesitate to rent to this guest again,
Melea and Miriam were great guests. They were very considerate. They didn't have to, but they stripped the sheets and left the place immaculate. They were easy to communicate with online and in person. Their pups were so cute and well behaved. We would be happy to host Melea in the future.
Melea is a fantastic guest. She has stayed with us a few times now and is always respectful of the shared apartment space. She is a great storyteller and we really enjoy having her here. I highly recommend her to any host.
Melea was a great guest. We were out of town both when she arrived and when she checked out, so we didn't get to meet her, but all our communications with her were easy and pleasant. And the house was left clean and orderly. She stripped the bed and washed the dishes, which is always appreciated! We'd love to host Melea anytime.
Melea was really friendly and made the whole process really easy.
Austin's SXSW brings smart people to town, but Melea is equally charming and a considerate guest. I enjoyed our conversations, and appreciated her quiet kindness. Great to make new friends!
Melea & her partner were wonderful guests. Although we weren't quite ready for them, due to a late check out, they were completely cool with me finishing while they settled in. I enjoyed having them around and would definitely welcome them back. I'd highly recommend them as guests to you.
