Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
Max guests: 4
We stayed for three weeks prior to our son entering a Portland university. Location was great for parking. We could choose to walk three blocks to the Max train or buses, or drive (very close to freeways.) Away from the demonstrations that happen downtown. Laundry was great to have, if a bit loud. Bed was comfortable. Best place we have found in downtown Portland area.
A Great Place
It was exactly as the pictures shown, Everything was clean and neat, Convenient to everything. Did not have a car and was able to get around by the local transit or Uber. Enjoyed the views of the river. A great place to spend a extended stay.
Great unit in a great location
I stayed in this unit for an extended stay and loved the location. Directly out the door are great views of the river and beautiful bridges. Loved this place and would stay here again!
Well located condo on the Willamette River water front. Sadly the view was compromised by the patio’s block retaining wall. The interior was comfortable, but basic. Everything that you might need to enjoy your stay was there. Owners were very accommodating when we inquired about getting the cable fixed. However, a window screen for the master bedroom never materialized. Checking in could have been made easier with current gate codes and parking space numbers provided prior to arrival. The complex is located within walking distance to a number of downtown attractions. However, going south results in an introduction to Portland’s homeless problem in a big way. Overall, it was a pleasant way to avoid Arizona heat.
Dirty & Poor management
I've given this property a 2 Star rating only because it appears to be recently renovated as advertised and the location is exactly what we anticipated. The major problem was with cleanliness of this unit. My comments are as follows:
The entire kitchen was not clean. The counter tops, refrigerator, stove, microwave, cabinets & drawers (inside & out) were dirty. The floors were very sticky & we even had a slug in the kitchen!
The hide-a-bed was dirty under the cushions. I had informed the owner in advance of our stay that we would have a guest sleeping on the couch, but it was not ready.
Other items of concern:
There is not enough silverware. The vacuum is worthless, the clothes dryer is very noisy especially when both the washer & dryer are running at the same time. There is no storage in the bathroom for our personal items. There is not even a drawer in the sink cabinet & the small cabinet above the toilet is worthless. Another towel bar should be installed.
When we entered the condo we immediately called & left a message for the owner. A written reply was received saying that they would refund half of our cleaning deposit and that their cleaning person would come by the next afternoon to clean. She did arrive mid afternoon and did some cleaning....with her own vacuum! The oven was filthy with grease, but she was reluctant to turn on the self-cleaning setting. After she left, I cleaned the oven and the rest of the kitchen and my husband cleaned the windows in the living area. In my opinion this entire unit needs a thorough cleaning!
It has been 21 days since we left the condo and we have yet to see a refund of any of our cleaning deposit. Personally, I think the entire amount should be refunded. I'm not holding my breath!
In summary, it is obvious that there is a lack of management & communication with this condo. We have been renting from VRBO for many years & have never encountered an experience like this! Obviously, we won't be back to this unit!
Enjoy all that Portland has to offer. Walk to the Saturday Market, attend the River Front festivals, walk to China Town, the Pearl District, or the Rose Garden for concerts and games.
Several MAX stations are within walking distance (two blocks) and can take you right to the Rose Gardens, Pioneer Court House Square, the Portland Zoo, Museums, the Expo Center, airport, and cities surrounding Portland.
