David and Ali were both very sweet. They offered a great balance of being helpful while also leaving us to our own vacation plans. My mom and I enjoyed our visit to the nearby (website hidden) which is only blocks way from Ali and David's house! Great location! Also, the suite is VERY spacious and SUPER clean :)
My friend and I had an awesome stay with David and Ali! The suite upstairs was very clean and organized, and it definitely made me feel at home. They provided tons of resources for traveling around Portland/Oregon, and they even wrote up their own sort of pamphlet to help out people staying at their place! Some other small details that I really appreciated were: blankets, pillows, & extra blankets for sleeping; towels & hairdryer provided in the bathroom; water heater, oatmeal and tea in the little 'kitchen' area. If I come back to Portland, I definitely feel like I will be staying with them again !
Ali and David were fantastic hosts! My mother and I felt so welcomed in their home and they were extremely helpful giving us tips on where we should visit and inexpensive places to park. David was so kind enough to carry our suitcases up the stairs for us. As we were leaving he helped us loading the suitcases back in the car. It was very kind. The rooms were very nice and it was plenty of light coming in. I felt safe walking around in the neighborhood which was very important to us. So close to airport and not far from downtown or waterfalls AT ALL. We definitely recommend anyone who wants to visit Portland for the first time to go stay with Ali and David. They are super nice, friendly and warm people. I felt right at home. Thank you Ali and David!!!
What a beautiful home and wonderful hosts. Everything is within walking distance. I would definitely rent from them again.
How to start? Our stay at Ali and David's house was absolutely perfect. To begin with, Ali and David were there to greet us as we walked up their street with our bags, fresh off the nearby bus stop and barely able to tear our eyes away from the incredibly beautiful gardens and historic homes that make up their neighborhood. Our room upstairs consisted of an entire floor to ourselves, complete with a kitchen/dining area (with tea and coffee!), a bathroom with shower, a smaller bedroom with a twin bed and rocker, and a huge bedroom with a queen comfy bed, table and chairs, couch, and big window overlooking the lovely tree lined street. They were such friendly, sweet folks, giving us advice about restaurants, vintage stores, public transportation, and the terrific arts district that is a few easy blocks walk from their house. My daughter and I so enjoyed trading stories with them, talking about books and art, and just marveling at the lush, gorgeous gardens all around them. They and their beautifully appointed old house helped make our first trip to Portland magical indeed. We can't wait to come back!
I was traveling with a friend for a girls' weekend. We had a fantastic time staying in this suite, and we both agreed we would love to stay here again. It's quiet, clean, and private -- we each had our own bedroom versus having to share not just a room but a bed at the pricier hotels. The location is ideal for those looking to experience Portland life without a lot of late nights and partying. Ali and David were helpful before, during, and after our stay and were especially flexible when it came to checking in and out. Highly recommended.
n.b. The ceilings slant, which may be an issue if you are super tall or overly clumsy, but this moderately clumsy 5'7" woman did just fine.
This was my first AirBnB experience and I can only hope that all subsequent experiences are equally good. Alison and David were very gracious hosts. They stayed up quite late into the evening to receive me when I arrived, and were extremely helpful setting me up as well as giving advice about how to spend the day and a half I had to spend in Portland.
The space itself is extremely comfortable with two bedrooms (though tall people need to watch for the sloping walls). All amenities one could need are provided, including soap/shampoo in the bathroom and tea/coffee/cereal in the kitchenette. And, everything is sparkling clean, which all travellers can appreciate.
This would be a great choice for both families and groups of 3-4 people looking to explore Portland. There's a bus stop close by that takes one to downtown PDX in 20 minutes or so; or, use the bikes Ali and David are happy to lend. The neighbourhood itself is quiet but friendly and that's exactly what I was looking for. If I'm in Portland again, I'm definitely staying here once more!
We had a wonderful stay with David and Ali. We had a very busy schedule and it was great to be able to come and go as we pleased. David generously offered the use of his bikes so we could tour Portland, and the set up for 3 people was ideal for our needs. We really appreciated being able to go out in the middle of the week and return again without losing our reservation.
David and Ali are long time Portlandites and were quite knowledgeable about sights and destinations. We found some great spots to eat on Alberta street and recommend the Cup and Saucer on Killingsworth for Breakfast.
Ali and David are only twenty minutes from the airport which was really handy when we had an early flight on the day of our departure.
We were sad to go and hope to visit Portland again.

David and Ali were very gracious hosts. David helped us locate a sushi place on Alberta Street. He was also very quick to look up and call the coffee shops to find out their hours. Extracto was fabulous for coffee. The location is very walkable to the Alberta Arts area and we rarely used our car. The 2 bedroom suite was set up just as advertised and very comfortable and clean.
Thanks David and Ali. We enjoyed our stay.
Nice stay in a very convenient neighborhood. Lots of room...
Ali and David are were excellent at communicating their arrival time which is always a great start. They were just as friendly in person as they were via our email conversation. As guest they were respectful, tidy and clean. Left the room and bathroom in good shape. It was fun meeting them and sharing "host" stories. Would recommend Ali and David as pleasent guests to have in your home.
Easy to see why these two are super-hosts for airbnb! They are super guests! It was like two dear friends I had not seen in way too long came by. I could say I will long remember them and hope they come by again, but instead I am going to make sure that is soon..and before that, I'll be up to visit their place in Portland! All the things we as hosts hope for in a guest is what they know so well and practice. Hope others are lucky enough to get a request from them..and if you do, say Hi! for me please.
Ali and her fella were ideal guests. Totally respectful, easy, appreciative and nice people. 5 out of 5!
Wonderful Guests, considerate quiet and always on the go. Portland must have some of the nicest people. come back anytime ;-)
I had the pleasure of renting Ali and David's apartment prior to them joining Airbnb. I think that perhaps the best way to describe what consummate hosts, and how welcoming they are, is to say that we bought the house opposite so that we could spend many more happy hours with them on their front porch.
I'm not sure how many stars are allowed so ... 100 % top recommendation from me! Ali and David work magic in building a space that gives just the right balance of community connection and personal retreat. They are artists, chefs and craftspeople, and you can feel the care and attention in all the details of the home and food they provide. Absolutely wonderful people who have opened their doors to guests, go if you can!
Ali and David are kind, thoughtful folks. They were some of the first people we met when we moved to Portland over 6 years ago and are dear friends. Their home and garden is lovingly cared for and their porch is the ideal place to hang out. As long time Portland residents they have valuable insight about best places to visit and eat.
We have stayed in David and Ali's rental space many times. It is bright and clean and very recently renovated. They are kind hosts, who will provide you with a safe and quiet environment. Their pets are well behaved and extremely cute. Located near everything hip and happening, this is an affordable and welcoming choice to consider when traveling to Portland.
Ali and David are really fantastic hosts. They are warm and open, and can provide great tips about both their own neighborhood and Portland, generally. They are quick to step in with the loan of a bike or an umbrella or what ever you might need, and walking through their wonderful plantings in the front yard as you go in and out is always such a pleasure. I have stayed in their wonderful upstairs rooms time and time again --their house is truly a home away from home. Thanks, Ali and David!
