Lovely house with a perfect layout for our reunion weekend with kids. Bruce was terrific to work with, responsive and a respectful caretaker during our visit. Highly recommend!
Bruce's house is a lovely restored arts and crafts large bungalow. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms large and light. We used the kitchen for one meal and it is well equipped. The neighborhood is a very typical portland family neighborhood. Thumbs up all the way around.
We had a pretty good 2 nights stay at Bruce's house. Rooms are neat and clean, plenty of facility as described, smoothly check in and check out processes. Overall a very nice experience.
Great house. Clean, quiet, spacious. Lots of character. Every facility you would expect in your own home. Close to shops and station. Bruce is a great host that easily balances friendly hosting with leaving privacy for his guests. Knowledgeable about local area and helpful; he drove us to the station when it was raining.
Bruce is a decent host. My kids and friends enjoyed the stay at this cosy house. everything is as Bruce described. A very convenient location for first time traveller in Portland. Highly recommended. 非常好的房东，房间舒适漂亮，社区安静安全。地理位置很方便出行。
The house was beautiful and situated in a nice neighborhood. The bedsore very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.
We arrived late and Bruce had our rooms waiting for us. He gave us clear instructions on how to enter his lovely home and we had no problems at all. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of room for everyone. The rooms were very comfortable and although the weather was in the 90's for the past few days, Bruce made sure the rooms were cool and comfortable enough for sleeping. The location made a perfect base for us as we visited downtown and the Gorge waterfalls. It also happened to be only a few blocks from our in-laws whom we were visiting. Although we were sharing the house with Bruce, it never felt like we were intruding. Thanks Bruce for a great first AirBnB experience.

About the Host, Bruce
Greetings! I call Portland home. Having worked in Television Broadcasting for 25 years as a Creative Director I have always had a passion for the arts, photography, design and take pride in remodeling my 1915 craftsman home. Wine, cooking and traveling are also high on the passions list! My daughter Talia when not traveling somewhere exotic loves home and is an expert in raw food, good health coach and a designer. She has also lived abroad and is following her passions in life.
Portland is a great creative town. An amazing amount of culture abound. Portlandia has definitely put us on the map. I love to travel and the best experience is feeling comfortable and welcome wherever you end up. Having lived abroad, traveling in New Zealand, Australia, Bali, and France I gained a fondness for guest houses, seeking out creative stays all along the adventure.
I am excited to share my beautiful home, some of my favorite restaurants and neighborhood highlights with new friends that I am looking forward to meeting ...and hearing where your travels have taken you!
