This was a bit like visiting distant cousins! Ted and Maria were generous in sharing their experiences and helpful to us for our Portland adventures. Their home is 8 blocks from the MAX. We had an upstairs tbedroom --decorated with Ted's photos--- and half-bath to ourselves, with encouragement to enjoy the back yard and rest of the house. A comfortable and enjoyable stay!
Ted's place was great. He and his wife are very friendly and warm. We had a good time sharing travel stories over delicious Portland beers. The room is clean and very comfortable. The house is located in one of my favorite PDX neighborhoods with quick access to the MAX and cozy coffee shops nearby.
This was my first AirBnB experience, and I stumbled across a true gem. Ted and Maria were warm and generous hosts. The room offered a comfortable bed, privacy, and a thorough selection of maps. I truly enjoyed breakfast time-great stories from Ted, homemade potato frittatas, music, and tea--an energizing start to exploring the city.
I very much enjoyed my stay, Ted and Maria were friedly, helpful and very hospitable hosts. I would certainly recommend staying there to anyone traveling through Portland.
Ted and Maria have a beautiful and relaxing home in Portland, and they are such great hosts. I was busy during my stay there, but looked forward to seeing them when I got home. I highly recommend this place to anyone stopping in Portland. I hope to stay there again when I visit family.
We enjoyed our stay with ted and maria. They are very generous host with lots of stories to share and even some garlic bulbs for next summers planting. Enjoyed the wine and conversation on the patio very much. Very good recommendations on local hot spots. enjoyed very much!
We loved our stay with Maria and found the area of Portland that she lived in charming. Maria also offered great recommendations on restaurants, parks, and other attractions in the downtown Portland area and Mississippi neighborhood.
Ted and Maria were wonderful hosts! As my first airbnb experience, I couldn't have asked for anything more. We shared wine and life stories and they even gave me dinner recommendations and breakfast. Highly recommend staying with these two extremely interesting people!
We enjoyed our stay with Ted & Maria, and very much appreciated their hospitality and helpfulness. The house is in a nice neighborhood and close to public transportation. We enjoyed Ted's travel photography and almost felt we were going along with him to the places he traveled.
Tim and Maria's home was awesome. Quiet, comfy, and just the right amount of warm :) Gave great recommendations for local restaurants -- we were not disappointed!
Ted and his wife were fun to talk with and I hope they can make it back sometime.
We truly enjoyed having this family in The Extra Room. Personable, friendly, and careful of their surroundings, Ted, Maria and children took good care of our place. We appreciated them separating recycles, tidying up, and even keeping the children quieter during late evenings and early mornings. We would love to see them again and hear about their latest adventures. Lovely guests.
Ted and his godson, Alex stayed for 3 nights. It was a pleasure to get to know them and hear some of their stories! We'd welcome them back anytime.
