The apartment was remodeled but retains original structural beams, concrete floors and several decorative elements have been reclaimed from the existing house. It's historically modern and modernly historic!

This was a great stay in Portland. Nice location close to Forest Park, few blocks west. A little further from 23rd than I had planned just due to weather. Walking to eat was chilly at night! They have construction going on next door and while noise wasn’t really an issue for us, the driveway parking was a little tight when backing out for a SUV. Smaller cars would be fine. That will resolve once construction is done, and all the workers were very considerate about the mess. Christophe and Sara were on top of getting back to me promptly and were very gracious at every interaction. The place was spotless and beautifully updated. Just what we wanted! Thanks Christophe and Sara!!

The hosts really go above and beyond in keeping the place feeling clean and comfortable. The location is quiet and beautiful, located near forest park (Also a perfect spot for a run). The location is furnished with nice furniture and a full kitchen should you wish to cook a few meals.

This place is amazing. It is perfectly situated within walking distance from many of our destinations. The host was quick to respond incredibly kind and thoughtful. After a brief communication with the host regarding some sightseeing they thoughtfully left blankets on the porch for us to take for a special viewing of an event. Thank You!

Christophe and Sara were great host! We were able to book and get confirmation very quickly on such short notice. We felt right at home. The space is beautiful. Modern, homey/cozy, and clean. We came with our two kids (4 and 2), and we were all able to sleep comfortably. The little touches in the place is what made me feel the host took the extra step to make accommodations great. There's a house booklet with recommendations of their favorite places to eat, drink, and see. They even had local coffee and chemex, along with local beer waiting in the fridge. The soap was one of my favorite touches. Truly felt like I was in Portland. Location was great to get to anywhere and everywhere. Most things were just a 5-10 min drive. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place in Portland. We definitely will be coming back!
