This location was excellent! Extremely clean and conveniently located. Shane was a great host - he responded quickly to any questions we had, and made a strong effort to make sure all of our accommodations were met.
Listing was not quite what we expected. Pics exactly as shown but there are a couple of things you should know before committing to stay here. Location to downtown Portland was fabulous - about a 10-minute drive. Parking was easy, right out front except weekdays 4-6pm. No sink in bathroom (there is a mirror), have to use kitchen sink to wash up and brush teeth. There is only one 1x2-foot window, lets in little light, no curtains for privacy but you can hang one of your bath towels over it, which means no light gets in (also, too small to use as escape and no additional exit). "Private bathroom": sort of. Living space has a lockable door, but the bathroom is outside that door and only separated from stairwell by a curtain. Entering the suite is through a dark garage, whose auto-lights may not light up until you are well into the dark. The basement part just outside the suite is pretty well unfinished, using sheets to separate other areas. It still all worked; price was ok, but our experience is if you can spend a few $ more you will have a way nicer suite. Wifi is excellent, however to get the password you have to have data access (airbnb or email), so either ask for it before you arrive (if you don't have a US data plan), or there's a Starbucks just over a mile west on Glisan.
Although the unit was what had been listed, there were certain amenities which had been forgotten or were lacking such as a bath mat, coffee making facilities, indications as to TV channels and cleaning items such as a broom/dust pan. Likewise the exterior lights were not always on in the evening and it was difficult to actually unlock the door, fiddling with a key in the dark. We never met the host nor spoke with him on the phone which is a first for an airbnb experience. Communication was only via email or text messages.
It was my first time to rent for vacation. Absolutely Great experience !! Very clean, beautiful view, good location. Shane is awesome. I asked many questions and he answered every single questions. Very helpful!! Highly recommend!! Thank you Shane!!!
I love this place! Lovely entrance with beautiful timber bamboo and the house is beautiful! Shane is very good communicator and fast response. The location is the heart of SE. The famous, Hawthorn st and Division st is 5 min away! Also close to 205, so it was easy to get there after getting off the free way. Thanks Shane for being a great host. I'll definitely come back and stay again!
We had a really great experience staying at Shane's place. Beautiful views from the balcony of Diamond head. Close to the beach and other points of interest. Easy access to the bus! We highly recommend!
If you ever need a place to stay in Portland, stay here! It is the perfect place if you need a nice retreat but have a hectic schedule and don't know when you'll be in. The accommodations were affordable, clean, private and quiet. This location had 24-hour check in, which was convenient as I arrived very late at night. While I never had the chance to meet him in person, Shane was very quick to communicate and was extremely helpful in answering the questions that I had. I would highly recommend staying here during your next trip to Portland!
My first Airbnb experience is declared a winner!! This space is exactly as advertised, with enough space for one, total privacy, and a super helpful host... for a GREAT price :-) I didn't get a chance to meet Shane, but he made sure that I knew that he was totally available. Both the room and the bathroom were very clean (the latter was my biggest concern going into this new experience), and I feel really good about giving it a high recommendation if it fits your needs!!
This was my first AirBnB experience, it was relatively easy. The Villa exceeded my expectations, and I'd stay there again on my next trip to Portland. Thanks Shane.
Shane is a great host! Very welcoming and accommodating. I ended up extending my stay several times and he always did everything possible to ensure I had a room to stay in. This particular room was great- warm heat, full fridge, oven/stove to cook on and plenty of cabinet space to store groceries if at all possible. I would definitely stay here again!
