David's home is very roomy and comfortable. We had 4 couples staying 3 nights and we never felt cramped. David met us shortly after we arrived and was very welcoming and charming. We spent every evening on the very nice deck behind the house, from where we had beautiful views of the valley and hills beyond. Good parking for several cars on the dead end street at the house, a short bus ride (route #20) to Forest Park, the NW Portland neighborhood, the Pearl District, and downtown. The house is in a great neighborhood, quiet and beautiful.
As all have said, great location, huge house, very clean & attentive host. the one thing we weren't aware of is that access to the owner's downstairs apt is through the garage, inside the home. Wasn't a big deal but we kept having to check it wasn't our kid exiting the house every time the door opened. Also beds are a little stiff but nothing a simple mattress topper couldn't help. Other than that, it was great. Would stay here again.
Great location - great home - great stay. House is spacious, clean, well-stocked with linens and kitchenware. Situated mere minutes from downtown in a safe neighborhood. Host was responsive and helpful. If you have a large group or family please consider this locale for your stay - probably no better value locally. We'll absolutely stay there again if in town!
David was a great host! Lucky for us, David arranged for the cleaning crew to finish early so we were able to check in prior to 3. The house was very nice - the views were amazing - and there was a lot of room for us to spread out. I especially loved the deck. I will stay here again next time I'm in town!
David's home was just as it is described. The views are stunning and the home was very clean. We travelled with three kids and 6 adults and the home fit us very well. David was welcoming and very easy to talk to. He has the house stocked with coffee and spices and vinegars for salads, which was very helpful. He also has all you need to do a load of laundry :)
We will recommend this home and stay there again next time in Portland. Thanks David.
David's home was perfect for our group, and the location cannot be beat! The nearby stores are very convenient and getting to anywhere in the Portland surrounds is so easy. David is a thoughtful host who respects his guests privacy. My favorite spot in the house was the deck overlooking the valley below where many hours were spent chatting and laughing with friends. Hopefully we'll have the occasion to stay again.
David's house was perfect for us. It was clean, comfortable and convenient. He was very kind to allow us to have guest over after my daughters graduation. I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Portland
About the Host, David
I have lived in Portland for the past 18 years, I am originally from Idaho. I am a Naval Academy graduate and have spent many years working and living in Asia, in particular Japan, Malaysia and Hong Kong. I am now retired and enjoying all the wonderful adventures the Pacific Northwest has to offer. My latest challenge was walking 500 miles on the Camino De Santiago Pilgrimage across Northern Spain. It was a grueling and amazing journey. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to my home.
