I love art, plants, dogs, biking, hot weather, magazines and swimming ^_^

Marijke was a wonderful host! The house was comfortable, clean, and spacious. Our family enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and central location in Portland. We would definitely stay at the charming Turret House again!
Marijke was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable. She communicates well about the schedule beforehand. Her place is uniquely decorated, very spacious, and meticulously clean. Definitely a treat to stay in such a nice environment. We would definitely stay there again.
Marijke is a polymath, an amazing host, and a wonderful friend. She has great taste in art, design, people, and space. She throws an unparalleled dinner party. She knows the best spots for dinner, drinks, and dogs. I'm proud to call her my friend.
Marijke is such a fantastic host to friends, family, and strangers alike. Knowledgeable, classy, and tasteful queen of her empyrean space, I've always enjoyed spending time with her at her home. Excellent at recommending local restaurants, bars, and art happenings, I couldn't recommend her more as a host!
I have known Marijke for more than a decade. She's hosted me all over Portland and is a consummate host. She has amazing taste, is deeply thoughtful and understands what it takes to make her friends feel comfortable and at home. Marijke understand how the smallest object or experience makes the biggest impact. Last year when I hosted a birthday party for my partner, she drove up from Portland to Seattle with a car load of beautiful vintage dishware and champagne flutes to make sure the party was perfect. I would recommend Marijke to other Airbnb users wholeheartedly, they will absolutely have an amazing experience in Portland.
Marijke is the best person to share a space with wether she is your houseguest or you are hers. She will take care of you and the space around you in the most elegant way possible. Staying in her home is a treat indeed.
Marijke is a great girl with impeccable taste. She is a wonderful hostess and makes everything look beautiful effortlessly. I cannot wait to rent this apartment for my next girls weekend in Portland!!
Marijke will take great care of you as your host. She is a considerate, smart, funny, responsible and patient individual who pays great attention to detail and she is always on top of her game. We have planned many events together and she always bears the brunt of the event planning with aplomb. Also you would be hard-pressed to find a better ambassador of Portland, because she has impeccable taste and can tell you where to find the best food, the nicest parks, and anything else that you might be looking for.
Marijke is that very special houseguest that will leave your home better than she finds it. I've often been pleasantly surprised to find my dishes done after she visits. She is sneaky about it too... waiting until you are busy with something else so that you only notice a day or two later she organized your junk drawer or folded some laundry you had left out.
You might be thinking, well of course her sister would write her a glowing review, they are family after all. But let me assure you, not only is everything I am about to say right now true, it is coming from someone that has known Marijke her WHOLE life and therefore knows her better than most everyone out there that could right a review. So technically speaking, I am the ultimate source.
Marijke is not only a genuinely good human being, she is kind, interesting, intelligent, funny, courteous, the kind of person and can talk to anyone and is someone you are glad to have met in this life. If I had a friend visiting I would want them to stay with Marijke, and for all you hosts out there, Marijke is the kind of guests you are hoping to get. Being apart of airbnb for over 6 months now and having over 18 different guests stay in my apartment it is great to see the community build with more people like Marijke. Host her! Or stay in her house, she lives in an ideal neighborhood and has one of the most amazing homes in Portland!
