  • Bruce was amenable and relaxed. We had found the room a little cold to begin, and he responded promptly by offering a heater and turning up the heat.

    We arrived during New Years and spent 4 nights in Portland. It was like being home in away from home, and at times we wondered if we were being invasive (you made us feel at ease)! Thanks for opening your castle to us :)

    Bruce's home is in the quaint Hollywood district which was both quiet and also convenient to access and get out of town.

    There is a great food cart park close by which offers many choices.

    Parking is easy and safe on the road.

    Hope you can visit us someday!

  • Bruce is the best. The answer to any question is always yes! This is my second time staying there. I love that bedroom, and the big king bed.

  • Bruce is the quintessential Airbnb host. His home is immaculate and filled with his personal art and good stuff to read. Bruce's kitchen is ideally set up for guests - and even boasts a Wolf stove. Very top of the line. Loved the fact that everyone must take off one's shoes when in the house. The house is in an exceptionally central location - easy to get around to all of Portland.

    But, in my view, even better is that Bruce took time to spend an hour with guests, myself and another couple whom I did not know. We had a delightful time over wine and tea (provided by Bruce) sharing our experiences around Portland. Ever helpful, the minute we asked about something - sometimes a bit esoteric - like where one might buy local olive oil - he was on his iPhone - finding the exact location. Art galleries, places to eat, parks to walk, you name it, he had suggestions.

  • I enjoyed my first stay at Bruce's so much that I decided to stay again at the end of my stay. See my first review for more info but suffice it to say that his place is great.

  • I had a great stay at Bruce's place. His home is beautiful and is one of the nicest AirBnB locations I've ever experienced. It's easy to get to the airport from there (12 bus/Max or walk/Max) and is just 1.5 blocks from a food truck location where you can peddle to blend your smoothie, buy great bagels or get Middle Eastern, Indian, Mexican, grilled cheese and other foods. It's a short walk to the 42nd street Max to get around Portland as well. Bruce was also really helpful in giving me advice on where to run (definitely check out Mt. Tabor at sunset) and has a great collection of visitor's guides. The only bummer was that I had to go elsewhere for laundry but found a great laundry, the EcoLaundry, on Belmont where you pay by credit card, can by single servings o Eco detergent, and get texted when your washer is done. It's also by a good food truck location as well (recommend the Norwegian food.). All in all, I had an awesome time at Bruce's and would gladly stay there again the next time I'm in Portland.

  • Bruce was extremely accommodating for our last minute plans, flexible for our needs, and offered a warm, welcoming, and comfortable environment for us to spend the weekend in.
    The King bedroom was warm and lovely, lots of seating and a very comfortable king sized bed in which I slept like a baby both nights. The shared bathroom (though we didn't share with anyone while we were visiting!) was right across the hall and offered a very beautiful modern clawfoot tub as well as a separate nice and tall stand up shower.
    We enjoyed the natural light pouring into both the bathroom and the bedroom, though when the shades were drawn, it allowed us sufficient darkness to sleep in a bit on Sunday.
    The rest of the home was beautiful and located in a convenient and fun location: we walked to both Gustavs, Laurelwood Pub and Restaurant, and the food carts for our meals.
    Overall, it was a lovely experience and we would definitely stay with Bruce again!

  • Bruce was a gracious and helpful host and his house was absolutely stunning. The beds were probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in and everything was clean and inviting. My mom and I had a great stay and enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, which had lots of restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay here again!

  • I had a great time of 11 days in Bruce's house. He loves his house and cares for it. And he is a really skilled man improving the traditional craft's man house even it is already in so exciting good shape. The master bed room is big and comfortable. The bath is just a dream. And you'll find all you need in the kitchen. I loved to sit in the nook beside the kitchen using Wi-Fi to find a own apartment and used car to make my start living in Portland. Bruce supported me also with help and advices. Thank you!
    I can highly recommend this location and host for all people open minded to get in touch with the local american way of live (email hidden)! Alex H.

  • If there were another Dos Equis man, Bruce would be it. He doesn't always host people in his house, but when he does, he makes sure he has a state-of-the-art recently renovated kitchen and bathroom. He's also just an all around cool guy. Bruce's partner in crime, Dana, is tons of fun too. They had great suggestions for things to see and do.

    My friend and I comfortably shared a King-size bed in one of the beautiful bedrooms Bruce has upstairs. Sleeping in a bed with another guy never felt so comfortable. It actually looks even better in person than in the pictures. And lest you have trouble drying off, there are several soft, high thread-count towels on hand for your showering pleasure.

    The Rose City/Hollywood neighborhood is beautiful. You forget you're in a city until you meet all of the beautiful, smart people, reminding you it must be Portland. We rented bikes and were able to trek in and out of downtown easily. For exploring other fun eastside spots, it's also perfect. Bruce's place is very close to Hawthorne to the South, and the Mississippi Ave./Overlook Park area in the North.

About
Greetings! I call Portland home. Having worked in Television Broadcasting for over 24 years as a Design Director I have always had a passion for the arts, photography, design and remodeling. Wine, cooking and traveling are also high on the list! 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 and Australia 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!
