Response from Jean:

Thanks for your comments, Veronica--sort of...

Our studio is designed for guests who are out and about seeing Portland, not for those trying to turn it into a daily living space. As I recall, I mentioned that when you booked, and you assured me you folks would be out looking for an apt, so the our daylight basement suite would work great for you. (I even mentioned our stand alone backyard cabin, Grandpa's Bunkhouse, might be a better fit if you were planning to spend a lot of time here. But you assured me that would not be the case, and that our more affordable daylight basement studio, worked best for your budget.)

In any event, we don't get complaints about hearing our upstairs activity by guests who are out seeing Portland. Rather they say Auntie's Hideaway was a cozy retreat to return home to each evening, and have nothing but praise for our artfully appointed space.

Also as far as outlets, you are the first in 7 years of business to complain about that. We're not really sure why since the number of outlets in our downstairs suite meet City of Portland codes. More, if you were inconvenienced at all, we wish you had asked for extension cords to ease any problems, or perhaps enlisted my help in locating all the outlets. Indeed, I indicated when you checked in to just let us know if you needed anything--and whenever our paths crossed, you indicated all was well...
