As first time travelers to Portland, Jim and Liz's apartment was awesome. The location was really great, we basically walked everywhere, and when we decided to venture across the river to NE, the bus that took us right there was a block away! Safeway right across the street for groceries, Pearl District,Powell's, Saturday Market, Chinese Gardens all within walking distance! Apartment was spotless, and again, location, location, location, and excellent communication with Jim and Liz. They were awesome! Highly recommend!
