Absolutely clean, pleasant, well thought out providing for a lovely stay. Hosts the best. Location great for walking, or public transportation. If traveling by automobile, off street parking for the delightful visit. Private and peaceful accommodations. The record player by the fireplace, easy listening. Elvis. Nancy Wilson. Jazz and classical. Country and rock. Enjoyable.

Absolutely splendid. It was a lovely experience being at Jen and Greg's place. So clean and comfortable. Playing the record player, the nice assortment of LP records, time stands still in this modern retreat. Division Street eating spots and great coffee places, a short walk away. All good!

Nice apartment with everything needed for a few days stay. Well equipped kitchen, good size living space, comfortable bed and full bath. Nice outdoor patio with good viewing for a variety of birds eating the berries off the trees. Easy walk to multiple restaurants, beer/wine bars, groceries. Short drive to downtown and many other attractions. 20 minutes to the airport. We would easily recommend to others, and would be happy to visit again.

Greg & Jen's place is located in a darling area of Portland. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and exploring the restaurants & businesses. We discovered some delicious restaurants just a few blocks away. We had a yummy breakfast at Boder, and amazing dinners at La Moule and at American Local. We appreciated all the guides, books, and notes our hosts provided about the area. Greg & Jen were very responsive and gracious. And their place is comfortable, quiet, and private. We will come back!
