About this listing

Welcome to our ranch style home in SE Portland just South of Mt. Tabor. This is a 1400 sq ft basement space. It's ideal for summer time, since it always stays cool. There's lots of space but it's a unique mix of form and function, not traditional.

Response from John:

Wow, thanks for being so forthright. You certainly had me fooled. I thought everything was going fine. I'm amazed at how pleasant and friendly you can be and not let me know how things are going for you. Especially since i went out of my way to check in with you regularly.

I just had 2 of my office staff go in to those rooms and they don't smell anything. And they were both shocked at your review. You seemed so pleasant and content the whole time you were here.

I've had dozens of folks stay in that space and be very happy. Since you've only stayed in about 3 airbnb places, i have a feeling you may be spoiled. I've been on airbnb since they opened, staying at dozens of places around the world. I know what bad and worse looks like. And it's nothing like here.

i'm really concerned about the cat pee smell. I wish you would have said something. I will have a professional cleaner come in, even though none of us notice any cat pee odors. I have to think you have an acute awareness of odors that we don't possess.

i bought cushions for all the patio furniture while you were here. The seats have very firm supports so there shouldn't be any issues.

It clearly states in the description that there is no hot tub. I'm sorry you didn't see that.

Your arrival after midnight was something i gladly arranged my night around, thank you. You broke the rules by having someone stay here; I was very easygoing about that, even though your friend left dishes in the sink and was here for 2 days. I'm glad that your friend appreciated his stay and you were so happy to have him around.

I appreciate your feedback on the clutter.You were here for an extended stay, i wish you would have said something when i asked how things were going. The clutter could have easily been moved. The room you were in is huge, very clean and plenty of space. The description clearly states it's a zen room. i will make sure i make that more clear. That table and the zafus (pillows) are all very expensive and of the highest quality available. We do have regular office chairs available and i will think about putting a regular desk in there. I will make sure to ask each guest. So far, most folks like having extra space.

I'm glad you got to take advantage of the plush yoga mat and the foam roller that i made available to you at no charge. i'm glad you had space in your room to be able to do those practices.

As for footsteps upstairs, the upstairs is a no shoes space. But yes, it is sometimes a drag hearing footsteps. That comes with being downstairs.

I replaced the shower head with an expensive new one as soon as you mentioned the problem. I stopped everything and attended to that before you returned that evening. And as i told you, i made an appointment with the plumber to come out and see if anything else can be done. Thank you for appreciating how i take my hosting responsibilities very seriously.

I just had that kitchen put in downstairs. Congratulations on figuring a way to use so many items that the circuit blew. No one else has managed to accomplish that feat.

Thank you so much for your feedback. It would have been better put in a message directly to me. As anyone can see from my reviews, i have a fantastic reputation and have been commended by other hosts who have visited her; see my reviews. I take all feedback seriously, and anyone reading this can be assured that all these issues were addressed immediately.

If anyone has the same issues and lets me know and i don't fix them within 24 hours, your stay is free.
