Exactly as pictured, super friendly and really a great location, loved staying there. Thank you Van!
Van's place was the perfect place for my fiancé and my 4 day get away trip to Portland. The bus stop for downtown was a block away; super convenient. There's plenty of pubs, cafes, restaurants and even Whole Foods within 30 minutes of walking distance. The room itself was incredible. Simple but well furnished and way bigger than I had imagined. Van is very friendly and so is Eric and their 2 cats. Highly recommended!!!
This space is centrally located in a very hip area of Portland. The room is spacious, comfortable, and stocked with as sorts of amenities. I wish we could have spent more time there and probably will when we come back. This is the quintessential airbnb experience, a caring yet unobtrusive host, affordable, and a gateway to an interesting neighborhood. Double-paned windows would help reduce street noise and drafts, but the fireplace kept us warm and cozy. So glad we stayed here.
This place was great! This is a great part of Portland; it is within walking distance to several hip streets as well as very close to downtown (and easy to get there by bus). Van and Eric were very nice hosts - I barely saw them, but I enjoyed talking with them after I checked in. The room is exactly as pictured, with lots of amenities, including the fireplace, Keurig machine, and desk. I also loved their two Siamese kitties. Great experience - I whole-heartedly recommend this place and these hosts!
The stay at Van's place was great. We were attending a wedding at the nearby Left Bank Annex. While we did take the buses during our trip, we loved the taxi cab services in the area. We were able to zip around back and forth from Downtown as well as to other parts of Northeast Portland. When we couldn't hail a cab, we'd call and get service within a few minutes, wherever we were (helps when its raining). But back to Van's place - like everyone has already said - cozy electric fireplace, all the amenities, great bed, closet, desk / work space, and bathroom. There was even a Keurig machine! We were in heaven. The only downside was that it was very windy the last night, and it woke us up a couple of times. But considering we paid less than half what our friends paid to stay in hotels, it was still a very pleasant trip.
I just had my first air and b experience and I am a fan! My room was warm and welcoming!
From the corner fireplace that was keeping the room toasty for my arrival to the comfy bed appointed with soft sheets and blankets . The room had everything I could want and more!! I can't wait to go back I will defiantly stay again .
The host can was great about staying in touch about the weather and transportation and even came and picked me up when I got turned around looking for happy hour..
I booked this room, and was initially excited about my upcoming trip to Portland. However, the snow storm kept me in Seattle, but Van was wonderful about corresponding with me, and giving me a refund. She seems great, and so accommodating. I will most definitely re-book.
This room is an oasis for the weary traveler. It is spacious, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. Van is a thoughtful and considerate host - she contacted me to inform me of the incoming Nor'Easter, er, Nor'Wester, which helped me better plan my trip. The location is perfect, a single bus ride away from downtown in a lovely neighborhood with a good variety of eats within walking distance. You get far and away more than your money's worth here, I can't recommend it highly enough!
I stayed only for a night at Van's place, but it was such a great place: Clean, beautiful, perfectly located and Van has been so accommodating and hospitable! I enjoyed my brief stay highly recommend Van as a host!
Van and Eric were great hosts. The place was very convenient . The neighborhood was nice for walk to eats and drinks. Close to public transportation. I liked the use of an entry code a lot.
Although we just met briefly, Van was very nice and courteous. Payed attention to all the recommendations and instructions about our place and left the place like they found it, they even put the bed sheets on the washer for me!
It was a pleasure to have Van and Heidi stay at my place. They are both very nice and friendly, and we had interesting conversations. I wish we had more time to chat though. But hopefully we'll see each other in Portland later this year :)
I have just started with Airbnb and I really wanted to do this to meet interesting people and I have all this space that I feel I should share. But it has been more wonderful than expected. Van and Heidi were amazing, interesting people. They helped me understand Airbnb more fully and they helped me understand how my tv system works. I should have paid them. They are welcome back. Check them out in Oregon.
Van and Emily were an awesome couple to host and I loved getting to know them! Van is an airbnb host, so he knows exactly how to be the perfect guest. They were clean, courteous, friendly, and very easy to communicate with prior to their stay. I would love to host them again.
Van and Heidi were outstanding, interesting and fun guests. Their stay was far too short, but we had enough time to enjoy each others' company and share meaningful time together. I highly recommend Van and Heidi to other Airbnb hosts without hesitation.
Van and Heidi were wonderful guests. They were very a very kind and considerate couple. As a fellow airbnb host, Van stripped the bedding/linens off the bed for me. The guest suite was left clean and tidy. I was thrilled to host another a host and welcome Van and Heidi back anytime.
Van is an amazing person! We were so happy to have him in our home. He is one of the nicest, easy going guest you could hope for! He is welcome back in our home anytime. He was here for a photo shoot and his pictures are absolutey amazing. If you want an extreemly good experience, do not hesitate to welcome Van in your home. You won't regret it, rather you will be left with warmth in your heart! Thank you Van for choosing our home to stay in. Teresa & Taylor
