The house is clean and cozy in a quiet neighborhood in a great location! downtown Portland is within walking distance or a cheap Uber ride away. Adam was very prompt with responses and check in was effortless. 10/10 would book again.

This was the perfect house for our family. It's simple and uncluttered, has clean and tasteful decor, with a very comfortable and cozy vibe that instantly felt like home away from home. The beds were comfortable, and even our 4 year old settled in with ease and slept through the night. There is a fire pit out back, a record player inside, and a guitar conveniently hanging on the wall begging to be played... which was the icing on the cake for our family! Adam was amazingly responsive and helpful both in the planning of our trip and also by answering any questions we had during our stay. Thank you again, we really enjoyed this place!

This is a stable base for a visit to Portland. Easy access to downtown but quiet and safe. Nice deck. Sparsely equipped kitchen--not for foodies or families. Adam was easy-going and accommodating. Quick responses to communications.

Very comfortable stay, just down the street from forest walking trails, and a short drive to downtown. Adam provided a wonderful directory of restaurant and activity suggestions, and maps.
