Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is perfect! Reasonably priced, clean, close to everything! My husband and I spent 4 days in Portland in June. We had a lovely stay in Portland. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a nice , centrally located place to stay. Serrato restaurant is directly across the street, we ate dinner there twice, we enjoyed so much. When I return to Portland, I hope this apartment is available again to rent!

Wow! What a great deal!

  • 4 of 5
We finished a two month stay at this property just before Christmas and had a wonderful experience the whole time.
The condo’s top plus is its location on 21st St. in the heart of Portland’s tree-lined Alphabet District. Everything you need is within walking distance -- top marks for walkability. Portland’s A+ public transit system is also fully accessible with a streetcar stop a block and a half in one direction and a bus stop the same distance the other way. We drove to Portland but only moved our car about a dozen times during our stay.
The fifth-floor, 1 br. condo is gorgeous. It’s in a vintage 1911 building and most of the original character of this era is preserved in the building's 1996 modernization. The condo has original architectural details, a huge cast-iron tub (with shower) for long soaks, and a kitchen with all the mod. cons. including a working retro-look Pavoni espresso machine. The building has lots of character too, with a tree lined entrance walk leading to a beautifully preserved tiled main entrance. The building is serviced by an old-style cage-door elevator.
The condo is fully stocked with all your basic needs – many incidentals too. Included were wi-fi Internet access, cable TV and an Internet enabled blu-ray player.
The landlords were friendly, approachable, and available for advice, assistance, and to fix any issues that came up.
Our dog was happy too. Couch Park, with an unfenced off-leash area, was three blocks away. A long walk away, Wallace City Park offered a fenced off-leash opportunity.
Parking was not included and on street parking was not always available in front of the building, but the furthest we had to park was two blocks away. We were always able to get the car back in front with a little diligent observation. For a short stay, this will never be an issue: you will park it and leave it as the condo’s walkability is key.
Ours was a winter stay: the condo’s only negatives were original, noisy hot-water radiators that clanked a lot and slightly drafty old-fashioned sash windows. But the heat was plentiful and after all, Portland doesn’t really get that cold.
We do not overrate when we review. We reserve five stars for “heaven on earth” situations. But, if for you, vintage character is a plus and not a minus, if you consider this property’s extremely reasonable rental cost, and if you factor in location, location, location, it might easily be five stars.

Great condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
This was an ideal place to stay!! Close to SO MANY restaurants and shops; 5-6 blocks to the MAX light rail; and in an area that felt safe and well populated with a truly comfortable mix of people...I loved this neighborhood! The condo itself is super clean and charming, in a meticulous, well maintained 1920's building with high ceilings and a lift elevator. The owner has filled it with everything you need for your stay, and is available should you have any questions, without imposing on your personal space. This is a reasonably priced rental, and you get far more than you would at a hotel. Yes, I would definitely stay there again!

Weekend Getaway in Portland

  • 4 of 5
Pleasantly surprised with charming ambiance. Excellent proximity to great restaurants and shopping along both 23rd & 21st. Quiet location. Arrived via train. Not sure on availability of street parking as it seemed packed 24/7 & observed a notice on one parked car suggesting street parking would be further limited.

Perfect for hanging out with the locals

  • 4 of 5
We were very happy with this apartment and would stay there again. We didn't get to meet Amela - you can check in and out on your own - but she was helpful on email.

The apartment was very clean and very well equiped. Lots of space for two people. The wifi worked well. The building has a lot of character. The heating system was quite loud when it came on in the early morning and again in the late afternoon, but maybe this was because it hadn't been turned on since last winter. The laundry room in the basement is useful.

The location of the apartment is great. If you're a walker, you can easily walk to the Pearl, old town and downtown areas. But to be honest, for eating and drinking with the locals, you really are spoilt for choice up and down the nearby 21st and 23rd avenues. For further afield, the fantastic $1 streetcar/tram system is just a couple of blocks to the north.

This was our first time in Portland and we loved it. Picked up the first season of Portlandia on DVD and are looking forward to watching it! I do hope someone starts a direct service from London soon...
