I spent three nights at John's place. I was very busy during the days and evenings so just came back to the house late to sleep. Though the bedding and towels were clean, the room itself needed attention. The furniture surfaces were not clean and the room wasn't presentable - seemed to be a work in progress. I did appreciate the quiet location though and there weren't many guests at the time so the house was peaceful. And John seemed very friendly and personable. I would consider returning but only if the room was clean and presentable.

About the Host, John
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.
