I am an artist and owner of a Gallery in Portland (website hidden) and gardening are two other hobbies.
We really enjoyed staying in "Two artists' modern and serene home". Both the home and garden were absolutely beautiful. The home is filled with light and with its huge windows, offers views of the garden. The gourmet kitchen was a joy to work in. We especially enjoyed the garden where we spent most of our time. It felt like an oasis in the city.
I had my entire family fly in for Christmas and instead of putting them up in a hotel I booked Karen's apartment. The apartment is unsuspectingly large with a full kitchen, bedroom, and sitting room. I love the way it is decorated with eclectic collection of pictures and books. There is always something new to look at. The location is great! Alberta street always seems to be jumping with activity. It's also close to a bus line that goes directly downtown. I would definitely recommend a stay.
Great couple! Very easy to deal with and nice personalities.
Hopefully we'll see you again soon!
It was tricky coordinating the key exchange since I was leaving DC right as they were arriving. But they didn't cause any problems and left the apartment in good repair.
They were wonderful people to have in Casa Cinco Patios. They were more like family.
Karen and her husband, Scott, were wonderful guests. They were respectful of the Guest House premises and also the staff. Everyone enjoyed having them here. Karen shared some of her art work which is wonderful and I'm sure Scott's sculptures are equally great. Very pleasant couple and great guests! Hurry back! Beverly
Karen was a fantastic guest! Very easy to communicate with and a really nice person. After meeting her briefly to drop off the keys, I knew that the apartment would be in safe hands with her. She also gave me a pass to the art exhibition at which she was exhibiting, which was incredibly kind. At the end of the rental, the apartment was left in immaculate condition. She would be more than welcome to stay at the apartment again.
