We stayed in the "garden level" apartment, which is essentially the basement of an old church parsonage. It is spacious, beautifully decorated, and certainly a unique property and basement. That said, the apartment is dark, and we felt like we were staying in a basement. The kitchen and bathroom are quite dated, and there is no dishwasher (contrary to the VRBO description). The bathroom has a european tub with curtains on two sides. If you stand to "shower" and hold the sprayer, the bathroom is inevitably soaked. The thermostat is in the upstairs living area, so we basement dwellers were at the mercy of the upstairs guests for temperature control. The owners were friendly and seemed genuinely interested in addressing our concerns. After the upstairs guests checked out, we were given access to the shower in that unit, which is modern and lovely. We'd consider the upstairs unit for a future stay, though it's considerably more expensive. We won't return to the basement.

We stayed in Apt#1, a basement setting. The apartment was carefully and beautifully decorated with real Moroccan artifacts and was both fun and mysterious and generally (see below) very comfortable. Our grandchildren loved seeing the bits. The garden stands alone. In the City of Roses, Julie's garden is a crown jewel. The basement apartment was a bit cold until we brought out a compact space heater that was available right in the apartment. (The chill factor is because we are of a certain age.) We are eager to rent again from Julie. *This review was originally posted on VRBO for a stay in Jul-16
The property is gorgeous, and Julie went out of her way to accommodate our need for an early check-in. The water features in the yard added to the ambience and pleased the little one! The apartment is enough room for 4+. Even though the unit is a basement unit, there is adequate natural light from the small windows. SO different than a traditional hotel experience, and ultimately so much better. The bed in the master was pretty soft, so some people might prefer the bed in the main room instead. TV package was very good. Access to main roads was good. Neighborhood was a nice respite from Portland proper. We came into the Portland area to tour local colleges, and this property was an excellent place to debrief after a touring day. Would definitely rent this property again!
