Perfect for our family, and in a great location too!
We stayed at the casita for one week and loved it! It was perfect for our family of four (including one toddler and one infant). The casita has everything we needed, like a separate room for the kiddos to sleep in while we did other things, a working kitchen, and even private outdoor space. Even though it is not a full-sized house, the way the furniture was laid out was very clever and efficient, making the casita feel quite roomy. The beds are comfortable, and there are a variety of lounging spaces to choose from (patio, couch, rocking chair, kitchen) after a long day out. The location is also great, in a lush green neighborhood, with convenient access to shops, parks, and restaurants nearby. What takes this place to the next level is the amount of thought and attention to detail that Nicci has clearly put into it. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and nothing extra to get in the way. She has stocked the bathroom with the nicest toiletries (even baby body wash!), the cupboards came pre-loaded with fantastic coffee and teas, and even some cereal to get us going. There was chocolate, beer, wine, and apples for us to snack on when we arrived at midnight - so wonderful! The kid amenities like an extra pack n play (for the infant), high chair, toys, books, and dining set meant that we didn't have to haul a lot of extra crap with us in our luggage like we normally would have. Nicci even let our toddler borrow a balance bike for the whole week, and he rode it all around the neighborhood, which is really quite lovely. Most essential to the whole experience was our wonderful hostess Nicci, a very personable, down-to-earth woman who responded to our every request but also gave us plenty of space to feel like the place was really ours. She gave us great tips on activities in the area, and also gave us suggestions on different neighborhoods since we were in Portland house-hunting. We do not hesitate in recommending this casita to anyone visiting Portland!
