Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • John was nice as well as flexible even for my late arrival. The basement room was spacious and comfortable.

    November 2012
  • We had some trouble getting to Portland, but once we did, John had left a note for us to call him. He left keys for us and gave me a phone tour of the house. Our basement room was clean and spacious, but I would have preferred a room with windows and fresh air for the cost. John seems like a gracious host. His backyard is lovely and is located in the great SE neighborhood of PDX.

    August 2012
  • John's house is in a lovely neighborhood. His space is comfortable and private. He is a warm and efficient host.

    July 2012
  • Stayed in the basement room, wow, super conductive to sleeping, dark and very quiet. Close to Mount Tabor park which is great for hill running. While a bit "off the path" still easy to reach lots of the SE neighborhoods especially along Division and Powell. Bathroom is clean and very private.

    September 2011
  • John was a very nice host and was very welcoming to his home. The room we stayed in was in the basement and it was very quiet.

    September 2011
  • Lovely neighborhood, a bit off the beaten path but certainly walking distance to a number of great bars and shops. We enjoyed having outdoor dinners on the patio in gorgeous weather. John was very accommodating and helpful.

    August 2011
  • Great accommodation in a nice neighborhood of Portland. John was friendly and easy to communicate with upon our arrival and I felt like I had everything I needed for a great stay. I would recommend this host.

    June 2011
  • John is an amazing person. It was a very pleasant surprise I could stay at his house. The bed is very comfortable and the atmosphere made ​​me feel in my own home. Clean and organized. Access to the wifi network quality and district where it is very quiet. I recommend it with praise.

    May 2011
  • The host is a really fine person, but the experience differed greatly from what we were led to expect by both the description and photos. It's a very dark bedroom and studio room in a cluttered basement. The comfort, privacy and noise levels are more akin to a hostel situation.

I'm a health professional, interested in living a healthy, happy, long life. At this point, i'm vegan, simple eating, but i love a place with a kitchen i can use. And the ideal place has a bathtub! I also host my home in Portland, and have met some incredible people. I currently am the CEO of the All About Health Network, an e-commerce business dedicated to promoting the benefits of massage and body rolling. i was an avid rock climber until i realized it was beginning to jeopardize my dancing career (post modern). I teach yoga, yamuna body rolling, soul motion, all easy forms of moving your body and staying healthy. I've taught everything from 6th grade Earth Science to College Health Science to Couples Massage.
