We stayed with five colleagues on a week-long business trip. There were three bedrooms upstairs that shared the Master bathroom (it opens to the bedroom and hallway) and two bedrooms downstairs with a private seating area and bathroom allowing a good private separation for the three men and two women. The third bathroom was off the kitchen. The open kitchen layout was perfect for when we wanted to work, dine, or just hang out.
The house was very clean and well maintained and quite comfortable…it felt like home. The owner was quickly responsive to several one-off questions we had. The neighborhood street was well-maintained and quiet. It was also an easy drive to and from the city.
The City of Portland, not the owner, has rules about using the deck and quiet time in the early hours, (and providing names and addresses of occupants) but this was not an issue for us, given the purpose of our trip.
It was the perfect financial alternative to five hotel rooms over the course of a week. If a similar opportunity arises, we would not hesitate to rent this house again without even trying to search for a different house.
