I am Portland and love to travel.
Paul was a great host. He was very responsive to my emails., texts and calls. The space was just as expected in a great location of Portland! Dog friendly too!
This loft is beautiful - what you see is what you get! Here's what's awesome about this rental:
- location - it's right in the middle of all the action in the Pearl District
- comfortable apartment, full kitchen - great sound system, TV, playstation, all the tools you need for entertainment
- owner Paul is very responsive and friendly - even suggested places to see and where to go snowboarding
I would come back any day!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
This contemporary studio condo is in an EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION in the middle of everything, in a newer and very nice building. The condo itself was very spacious and bright for a studio, with wood floors, good lighting, spacious bathroom, a nice kitchen, and floor-to-ceiling windows and juliet balcony. The layout itself was very nice, and the "bedroom" area has its own nook. Condo comes with a parking stall.
We spent two full days without a car, walking around Pearl District, 23rd shopping, etc., and had a great time. The restaurants in this area are exceptional, and the shopping is boutique.
Paul was a great communicator, and if we had a question he replied immediately, even when he was attending events. This is his primary residence, so it is kept up nicely and not ragtag like some condos where I've stayed.
One caveat, if you have allergies and/or athsma (as we do): As soon as we opened the door we were assaulted by three(!) plug-in air fresheners and the vague (not at all heavy) scent of a smoker. Our problem was solved by unplugging the air fresheners (which I forgot to plug back in -- sorry Paul!) and topping them with plastic wrap, and airing the space out a bit . This did not at all hinder our visit, and we would definitely stay there again.
Great great stay in a very nice place. The location is also wonderful, many shops, restaurants in a trendy area of Portland. Although I didn't use public transportation it is really close and seems convenient. There was street parking which I found pretty easy to use and not too expensive because I was not around during the day. The Loft has high ceilings, a nice sized living room and is very spacious overall. Paul has TIVO setup and I never got bored with the many movies and shows available. I never got to meet Paul but his friend checked us in and everything went very smooth
Really clean and modern apartment in a totally central location. Very quiet and safe, with a great bathroom and kitchen, a comfortable bed and nice pillows (not those crappy foam-rubber kind).
It was a *tad* dusty, but this is a nitpick. Really big space and plenty of room for a week-long visit. Highly recommend.
Would definitely stay here again! Paul was very helpful answering our questions prior to arriving. The condo is beautiful and the location couldn't be better.
I had a great time during my stay. The place was really nice, and I'm really happy I stayed there. The location was great close to the center of everything with tons of restaurants and places to go out. Also, it was in the free fare zone for the street car so it was easy to get downtown. Overall I would recommend staying here to anyone visiting Portland.
Paul was a fantastic guest, outgoing and very personable. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting him and hope he returns as a guest!
Paul was an excellent guest. They are welcome anytime.
