Gary’s Home was perfect for an annual friends trip to Portland. The house was in a quiet neighborhood and there was plenty of parking. the home was incredibly clean and comfortable! Gary gave us with plenty of privacy and the amenities were great! Would definitely recommend this spot!

This is a great house in good neighborhood. We were a large group with multiple families and a total of 8 kids. Gary provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay so we could get out and explore what the local neighborhood and Portland had to offer. This was a great stay and I would recommend Gary's house to anyone on their way to Portland!

You will love this spot in Portland. This house is perfect for larger groups. The living room is large and can accommodate lots of people. It divides well for those who want to watch football and those who don't. The dining room is a great size as is the kitchen. If Gary doesn't already have it there, you don't need it. And Gary is easy to work with from beginning to the end. The house is also in a great part of Portland. Close enough to the city, yet not too close. And the Piedmont area is very fun to explore.

The big picture windows, some with beveled glass, excellent beds and bedding and well-stocked kitchen basics almost made us not want to leave this comfy haven. But Portland was great fun, too! Great place to stay, I would for sure want to stay there when I get to Portland in the future. Perfect for families or small groups of friends. Thanks, Gary!

Gary's Piedmont home was a perfect place for us. We needed a place located near our son's wedding venue in the St Johns area for our daughters and their families (5 grandsons!) to stay. The fact that Gary is not only supportive of having gatherings in the house, but has it well supplied for a crowd, made it the perfect place for us to have a casual rehearsal dinner there as well. We had around 30 people for the dinner, and it was relaxing and fun. The house is lovely. Gary takes obvious pride in this 1925 gem and has it furnished well. The 4 bedrooms are roomy enough for extra people, and Gary had even set up one of the many available air beds in one of the roomier upstairs bedrooms for us. There are games and some children's books and toys, two high chairs, and a Pack n Play at the house. Although there isn't a backyard, there is a patio in the back with outdoor furniture. Peninsula Park is a few blocks down Ainsworth, and has a beautiful rose garden as well as lots of room for play. Safeway, Walgreens, and Starbucks are just a block away. Our weekend was a big success!

Response from Gary:
Tish I am glad you had a wonderful time at my home. Peninsula Park, just down the street, covers multiple blocks and is an excellent gathering place for families. It includes the first Rose Garden in Portland, a playground for kids, large water fountain and gazebo, softball diamond, basketball and tennis courts and a community center with ping pong and swimming. Thank you for the glowing review.

Interaction with guests

I can have as much interaction with guests as you are comfortable with. I can be available to check in and then leave you to do as you wish. I am also more than willing to socialize, if time allows. Whatever your comfort level may be I am willing to accommodate.
