Ben and Becky were incredibly welcoming personally and with what they set up for us in the apartment. We arrived late at night and appreciated being able to arrive on our own timeline. The kitchen was stocked with snacks, drinks, and even a bottle of wine. It was incredibly welcoming. The apartment was incredibly clean and organized. We loved the fire place (for the heat and the atmosphere). The bed and couch were comfortable. We all would recommend this place to our friends in the future.
Ben and Becky's place was great! The location was very central: an easy walk over to the Alberta Arts district and a quick bus downtown. Becky was really easy to communicate with and it was a breeze to checkin and checkout. They left us food for breakfasts and a bottle of wine, so nice! I would definitely recommend their place.
Ben and Becky were super responsive to our last minute booking. They answered all our questions and were very helpful. The suite is modern and stylish, with all the comforts of home. The location provides easy access to Portland sites and attractions. The breakfast provisions (bagels, coffee, juice, etc.) were a bonus that was greatly appreciated. Highly recommended.
This was a lovely, stylish, thoughtfully outfitted place. Quiet, comfortable, with wonderful hosts.
My family and I (two adults, a preschooler, and a baby) stayed at Becky and Ben's beautiful place for about 10 weeks this winter. The experience was fabulous. Not only is the apartment perfectly equipped (toys, books, games, extra toiletries, matches for birthday candles - anything and everything you would want in your own home is there) and ideally located (walking distance to numerous food and shopping options, also easy access via car or public transport to anywhere in the city) but Becky and Ben are great hosts. Any small problems we had they responded to within seconds, and otherwise remained out of our way entirely. It was easy to feel like the place was ours for the time we were there. All in all a fabulous experience - highly recommend for short or longer stays.
Very nice place! Hosts were very responsive! Neighborhood was fun to explore! We would return :)
This was one of the best places I've ever stayed at through AirBnB. Ben and Becky were great hosts, and they have put a lot of thought into making their apartment extremely comfortable and accommodating for their guests. The apartment was far above average in terms of appointments, the furniture, bed, linen, towels, kitchen supplies - everything - was all of the quality you would have in your own home, or better. We stayed for a month and were very glad we chose this place over other options. The location is great, in a quite neighborhood close to both Alberta and Williams Streets with tons of bars and restaurants, and less than 10 minutes by car from the central Portland districts like the Pearl and 23rd avenue. The apartment is a downstairs unit, but noise was from upstairs was never an issue. This apartment is in a great location, has fantastic, thoughtful, hosts, and has everything you could need and more, I would love to stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone considering it.
My cat and I lived in this apartment for seven months while my own house was being renovated. The location is great. It is a small apartment, but more than sufficient for one person. For shorter stays, two or even three people would be fine. It gets a surprising amount of sunlight for a basement flat. I had only minor issues during my stay, and all of them were addressed quickly. Ben, Becky and the kids and dogs are very quiet.

We stayed in Ben and Becky's apartment for 4 nights and it really felt like home. They have everything you could want in a kitchen (appliances, cereal, milk, bagels, fruit, juice) bathroom (lots of towels, extra soap, extra everything else). The apartment felt brand-new and is just super comfortable. Our interaction with them was minimal, but Ben greeted us as we arrived, showed us the layout and left us to it. They even left us a nice bottle of beer which was perfect after a long drive. Highly recommended.
It was a pleasure to host Ben and Becky Straub.
nice folks welcome back anytime
They were very neat and left the house much as they found it. very pleasant folks.
Great guests! Everything went perfectly smooth and I would highly recommend! Welcome back any time at all! :)
Great guests! Left the house in great shape, would definitely rent to again.
Ben was a excellent guest. We never did get to meet him, but he was super polite and considerate in all communications and he left the studio in top condition.
ben and becky were great to work with. good communication and left the place in excellent shape. very happy to have them as guests and they are welcome back any time!
We were heading out of town when Becky and her son were arriving at our cabin, so we didn't get to meet in person, but I felt totally comfortable from out communication leaving the key for her. She left the cabin neat and tidy, and even took their garbage and recycling out with them, which was a plus for us since we weren't back up on the mountain to check on things for several days.
Everything was great!
Great people with beautiful kids. Left the house in great shape. They are welcome back anytime.
