As an owner Claire was very available and responsive. Her place is quite lovely, surprisingly large, and in a great location! I would not hesitate renting it again!
Claire was a wonderful host. She met us at her place when we arrived, walked through everything in the apartment, provided maps for downtown, offered a number of suggestions for dinner while we were in town and even agreed to push check-out by an hour. On that last note, if you aren't leaving the city until late in the evening on your final day, there is a greyhound station just a few blocks away with very large electronic storage units that you can store your luggage in until you leave ($3 for 3 hours, additional $1 for each hour thereafter).
The apartment itself was fantastic. The bed was opulent with thick, soft covers and a heating pad underneath, which came in handy after spending the day outside in the rain and 40-50 degree weather. The location was within walking distance of the Yellow and Green lines, which in turn connected to the extensive bus/light rain system. There were also a number of VERY nice restaurants within walking distance (e.g., Andina) and major attractions (e.g., Powell's Books).
In short (too late), if I ever find myself coming back to Portland, Claire will be the first person I call about housing and I highly recommend you do as well.
Claire's place was great! I came to stay for the weekend with my girlfriend and we both loved it. It is in a perfect location in the Pearl District, easily walkable to all of the downtown sites. The building is nice and the apartment is very clean and very comfortable. Claire made the check-in and check-out process very flexible and convenient for us. We would definitely stay here again.
Rent this space! From the beginning, Claire was responsive and available with communication through email and phone. Finding the place was a breeze with the clear directions she gave. The key exchange was smooth and efficient, like olympic gold track stars. The place was clean and comfortable. We changed the arrangement of the candles, but it didn't matter. The bed was an oasis. The bathroom was clean, towels were set out. It was cozy and just what we needed after out transition to Portland.
Claire was a perfect guest. It was easy to sort out the details prior to her arrival, and she left our apt as we left it for her. I would highly recommend inviting her to stay in your apt. Thanks, Claire!
