My name is Tali and I'm part owner of a music venue and bar in Portland, Oregon (Mississippi Studios). We also rent an apartment through airbnb that sits above our bar (Bar Bar).
We LOVED staying here; and Tali was so amazing in helping us get settled. When we arrived everything was perfect - including having a warm fireplace lit for us upon arrival, which was amazing since it was snowing outside!
The bar right downstairs was a blast and we hung out there for a while. The bar staff is fun & friendly and the drinks are honest & fairly priced. They've got a late night happy hour on Sunday-Tuesday which I'd highly recommend.
Perfect location. Book this!
A large spacious apt. Above a bar/restaurant. Definitely loud and thumping until 3AM.If you can't sleep, join them downstairs fof a few beers. Hip location, convient mart 3 doors down. Ample free parking within one block.
POSITIVES: dishwasher, garbage disposal, washer/dryer, tons of towels/ linens, lots of glassware, pans etc., large gas fireplace in living room.j
NEGATIVES: terrible mattresses (morning back ache if over 30. Pink and blue mold covered shower curtain (and they charge a mandatory $60 cleaning fee!!!!!).
tali's apartment is the real deal. my friends and i walked in and were shocked by how amazing this place was. it's above a bar, so it's loud late, but if you're looking to party in Portland, look no further. this is the place to stay. just try not to book it on days that i want it again.
Such a wonderful stay in the Mississppi neighborhood in Portland! The location of Tali's apartment is so convenient. There are tons of cute shops and incredible restaurants on the block. We even had no problem finding parking for our oversized rental car. Her place is super spacious and really clean. The only draw back is the music from the bar downstairs, but Tali is up front about that in her details about the place. But we were so exhausted from exploring the city all day that we passed right out even though the music was still pumping until about 2am. Tali was super accommodating. She let us take our time when it came to check out and she even helped us get into the metal show at Mississippi Studios our first night in town. I would definitely stay here again!
- The location is perfect.
- The apartment is spacious with lots of seating space.
- We all really enjoyed the fireplace.
- Tali is friendly and helpful, but leaves you be.
- The beds were uncomfortable and thin.
- The bar downstairs plays loud music until it closes at 2 am. For light sleepers like me, this is a problem. My friends could sleep through it.

An incredibly cool yet comfortable apartment right in the heart of a hip neighbourhood. Be prepared for late-night noise; if you're doing Portland properly it shouldn't be a problem.
If you get the opportunity, you must stay here. Thanks Tali!
Tali met a bedraggled entourage consisting of myself and a couple of fellow travelers. She was always hospitable and accommodating. The space and the location were first class. I can't think of a better place to stay in Portland. Do yourself a favour: rent this space.
This is the third time I've stayed the above the bar, and each time its been great. Highly recommended for groups of travellers - the Neighbourhood is great also.
We were in town for a wedding and staying here saved all six of us a ton of money over a traditional hotel. Place is amazing! Perfect location - close to many good food spots, bars and public transportation. The bar and music venue below the apartment are great - and only having to walk ten feet to get to them was surreal. Tali was an excellent host and I look forward to staying here again.
Tali Ovadia's friends were perfect. No complaints at all!
Tali stayed at our apartment in New York while we were away in April/May. She was the perfect guest, communicated well and left the apartment in a great condition. Definitely someone you can trust to stay in your house.
