I live in Portland, Oregon but have lived all over the U.S. I previously rented my condo on AirBNB and really enjoyed the experience.
Staying in Steve’s apartment was a great experience. The place was very comfortable and clean. We also found the location to be very convenient with so many places to walk to. Steve was very accommodating to our needs and made sure we had everything we needed (even a secure place to keep our bikes). I will only mention that if you are not used to older buildings (this also adds to the charm of the place), walking on the floor and closing/opening doors is creaky. Again, not a big deal, but if you’re not used to it, you will notice it. My husband and I definitely recommend Steve and his hospitality.
Great apartment in a great location! Super clean with a comfy bed. Short walk to downtown with many restaurants and bars close by. Check out Elephant’s only 2 blocks away – great for a quick and delicious takeaway breakfast / lunch / dinner (thanks for the recommendation Steve!). Parking can be a bit tough, but we always found a spot. We really enjoyed our stay – I definitely recommend.
Steven is a very nice guy, who was okay meeting us immediatly although we were couple hours early. The appartment is very pleasant close to dowtown,....we could walk everywhere. Parking is a bit challenging but we managed every night to find a good spot. nice open , clean appartment. i would recomment staying there,.....
My fiance and I were pleasantly surprised by how great Steve's apartment is. Steve greeted us when we first arrived (in the afternoon on a weekday, which was nice) and had stocked the kitchen with some fresh and mostly organic breakfast foods, which was a nice touch. The apartment itself was spotless, spacious and really comfortable. From the memory foam bed to the old school Wii Nintendo games, we had a great place to go home to each night we stayed in Portland. The neighborhood is also great -- a block from shops and restaurants, close to the MAX line to the airport and a short walk to the Rose Test Gardens and Japanese Gardens. Thanks for a great stay, Steve!
Spacious for a one bedroom apt. Clean and quiet for a busy neighborhood. Close the bedroom doors to reduce the any night -time noise. Great location, easily accessible to the NW shopping area, the Pearl district and downtown by walking, bus/trolley or a short drive. Parking is tight but not a problem once you get familar with the neighborhood. I would stay there again.
We had a really pleasant stay at Steven's place. The apartment was really clean and well located. We highly recommend it.
Super charming apartment conveniently located by many attractions such as the Portland Zoo, Japanese Gardens and food carts. Steven is an awesome host, super polite and communicates with you throughout your stay. The apartment was clean and fully furnished with everything you can possibly need, including extra pillows and blankets. The couch also sleeps an additional person as well. Steven was super accommodating when I wanted to stay an extra week, which was unplanned. I would definitely pick this apartment again if I am ever able to visit Portland in the future. Thanks, Steven!
I had a great stay at Steve's apartment. As soon as I walked in, I noticed it was very tidy with modern, clean furniture, and is a really great layout. The apartment feels very roomy and has lots of windows. The building itself is from the turn of the century and must have been a luxury building in it's day.
Although Steve's home is on the ground floor and doesn't get a ton of natural light, it was still bright and cheery to be in. There's only a moderate amount of street noise, which is a treat in this bustling part of town. I slept like a baby on the memory foam matress.
The complex seems to be mostly filled with young professionals and responsible college students, and it was quiet the entire week I was there. Steve himself is very thoughtful and pleasant. He went out of his way to deliver me the apartment keys in the Pearl district and met me with a smile. Everything was taken care of for my entire stay.
Thanks for a great find and pleasant stay, Steve.
