Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This place was in a great location, beautiful little garden in the back and had everything we needed. Spacious rooms, updated kitchen and pretty quiet. John was very sweet and my daughter loved the sidewalk chalk and art. A bit dated, as many of the older portland duplexes can be, however, for the price and locations, it was very reasonable! Thanks John!

  • John has a lovely place, with tasteful decor, in a terrific PDX location. Restaurants, biking, and public transport are all convenient. Parking was easy and John O was available as needed. It was all good.

    March 2014
  • This place was just what we were looking for: spacious, comfortable, and very walkable. It was a great pad, and a place we'd love to return to.

  • Fantastic flat - comfortable, easy check-in, and perfect location. Highly recommended!! Make sure to check out Crema just a few blocks away on 27th - Early morning walk, coffee and amazing pastries!!! Thanks John!!

  • John was a great host. I was able to accommodate a last minute change in locations. I communicated quickly & efficiently. His apartment was great and had a lot of charm...better in person than even the pictures.

    February 2014
  • John's home is as described and quite a find! My friends and I enjoyed staying at his place. The location is great--we realized we didn't stay in the car for longer than 15 minutes driving around Portland so it was a pretty good location. He was easy to communicate with and very accommodating. I would stay here again!

    February 2014
  • Had the best stay here! John was a great host and his home was clean, cozy and beautiful. Good location too. Close to everything. Would definitely stay here again!

    January 2014
  • Our stay at John's apartment was wonderful. The place was clean and well maintained, and John was a very responsive and accommodating host. There was a bottle of wine and some fresh coffee beans waiting for us when we arrived! The location is fantastic. It is within walking distance of so many great restaurants and breweries that we might not have explored if we stayed downtown. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Portland.

    January 2014
  • John is a really nice guy who is eager to assist you in all your needs, we felt very welcome and at home. The apartment was a perfect fit for me and my family, we will definitely try and book with him again next time we're in town. Thanks a lot, John!

    November 2012
  • John's apartment had everything we needed and more. He was quick with recommendations but also not at all intrusive and left us to ourselves. The location is fantastic and we would love to stay there again someday!

I teach psychology at Portland Community College. I am also a mental health therapist and a sometime public artist. My family has been in Oregon since the early 60's, originally from the east coast so that makes me pretty close to a native Oregonian. I love showing people around and making their stay a pleasurable one.
