I stayed in John's guest house with my father and we had an awesome time! Great location and beautiful setting. I was looking for a clean place with two beds and a bathroom at an affordable price. This rental was so much more!
The beds are plushy like sleeping on clouds. The whole place was very clean and kept nice. My dad enjoyed the keurig coffee maker and I enjoyed the delightful shower.
Backyard is welcoming with Japanese maple and other greenery, on the nice patio we sat and watched the stars. John joined us for a while and he couldn't have made us feel more at home. Great guy, only wish we would have more time to chat during our busy road trip.
This night MADE our time in Portland. I cant wait to stay again!
John's guesthouse was comfortable, private, and homey; everything we wanted in our first visit to Oregon. John recommended several delicious restaurants that we would definitely be going back to if we ever visit again. He made sure the guesthouse was spotless and well-stocked with multiple towels. There are two twin-sized beds but my boyfriend and I cozied up together on one bed without a problem. We had a little problem with the booking dates but John was so accommodating that the issue was resolved within a minute. John is an enthusiastic and friendly host. If we ever go to Portland again we will definitely be staying with John.
John was an absolutely amazing host! We booked our stay on short notice and he was so quick to respond and had the place ready for us that very afternoon. The guesthouse is so homey and the beds are super soft and comfortable. My wife and I had a hard time getting out of them in the morning to go explore PDX! We will definitely hope to book with John again on our next visit.
John was such an amazing host! He was funny, kind & very accommodating. He responded quickly to all messages. His adorable guest cottage was private, full of charm & unique furnishings. The corner twins were extra long & had luxurious linens (the softest I've ever slept in). The down comforters & pillows were perfect. The cottage was carefully thought out-quite roomy & very comfortable!! Bigger than it looks! John had many excellent recommendations for things to do in & around town. Couldn't have imagined a nicer stay. We definitely will be back!
John was a very welcoming and communicative host, and he had great food recommendations as well as very helpful directions for getting around! A very comfortable stay.
Great stay with John at his guest house! He was incredibly gracious in making sure I felt at home, shared his awesome restaurant list and even brought me a nightcap. The place was exactly as described-- clean and comfortable. One of my favorite Airbnb stays for sure.
This host and guesthouse and host are worthy of the previous reviews. This host makes sure you are well taken care of. I came to town with a girlfriend. We found the house to be very comfortable. It has a great shower and bathroom. My friend and both noted how comfortable the twin beds are. We used this as our home base as we explored around Portland. I feel that this place is an excellent price for the quality you get.
John was AWESOME!!!!! I just relocated to the area and needed a place to stay for a little over a week while I apartment and job searched. My little brother came to help me (notice the twin beds! Perfect for family travelling together) and we stayed at John's guest house in NE Portland. It was very clean, had a private (very nice!) bathroom with a privacy door and access to laundry- not to mention it was extremely affordable. There was also a full closet, which worked out well because I had all my clothes with me. John was available right next door for anything we needed. There was also a little garden patio area which was perfect for the morning coffee he provides in the guesthouse. And not just any coffee: delicious, K-cup style coffee, in the true Northwesterner tradition of good coffee. John understood I was not here to vacation, and was very helpful with making suggestions as to where I should be looking to work and live. He made my brother and I feel very comfortable, has a wicked sense of humor, and even took me out for burgers! Also, there's also a very nice fitness trail across the street to burn off those burgers. I will definately recommend his place when my family and friends from home come to visit.
My cousin and I loved staying with John! John was always friendly and quickly to reply to my messages and questions. He is an extremely gracious and accommodating host and the room was very clean and comfortable. We really appreciated the tips on getting around Portland as well as and restaurant recommendations that he gave us. We would definitely want to stay with John again next time we come to Portland!
John's place is beautiful, clean, and well located - the perfect place to stay while in Portland whether you're looking to indulge in the city's food scene or have fun exploring the Gorge. It's located just a short drive to the Gorge or downtown Portland, there is easy parking off the Main Street and it's pretty quiet so you can get a good night's sleep. The studio is warm and cozy, the beds are comfy, the bathroom is spotless, and even though there is no full kitchen, there is a small fridge and coffee maker.
John is friendly, helpful, and knowledgable about all things Portland. We had a great time chatting with John and trying out restaurants he recommended. My partner and I had a great time and will certainly be staying at John's the next time we are in town!
John and his friend were lovely guests - pleasant to talk with and left the room in great condition. They are welcome back any time!
Have known John for many years. Just visited Portland to meet my new grandson, and John let me stay in his guest house. It is lovely, not to mention very clean and such comfy beds! John has many wonderful attributes, not to mention what a great host he is. He is very knowledgable about restaurants and areas to visit. The location is perfect in terms of accessing the various areas of Portland. Highly recommend you stay with John when visiting Portland.
I have known John for more than 20 years.
In his recent location, I have had the opportunity to stay on three occasions over the past year (having recently relocated to the WA area).
John has a lovely separate guest suite that is very clean and comfortable. Bed linens and towels are of excellent quality. There is also access to WiFi.
This accommodation location makes it a great attraction to anyone visiting or relocating to the area.
John is very knowledgeable on restaurants, local attractions and the general Portland area.
I highly recommend anyone considering a unique place to stay.
A lovely room, a wonderful host with great knowledge of Portland shopping, eating, browsing.
I've had the pleasure of staying in this guest house twice now, and each time it was perfect. Comfortable beds, beautiful bath, and so, so quiet. The "Ricky and Lucy" set up is great for the space, as there is room enough for a nice comfy chair to chill with a book or tablet, and a big armoire that hides the TV. A small 'fridge and Keurig coffee maker rounds out the room.
The back patio is lovely, and a great place to sit with your morning coffee, your Kindle or the like.
Being minutes from the airport, you don't have to get up 3 hours beforehand, and everything in Portland is within 20 minutes anyway. Getting around is easy...so don't let the location throw you off.
John is the consummate host, and is very knowledgable about the Portland area and the best places to grab a great bite from a neighborhood hole-in-the-wall, or one of the trendy food carts, or a fun, "best of" restaurant.
HIGHLY recommended. Go chill at John's.
John's guest house is beautifully furnished. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Lovely modern bath with shower and Restoration Hardware towels! Off-street parking and private entrance to the guest house.John's guest house is beautifully furnished. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Lovely modern bath with shower and Restoration Hardware towels! Off-street parking and private entrance to the guest house. John knows Portland very well and can offer good suggestions for things to do, see and places to eat off beaten path. John has a lovely garden patio to relax and enjoy a book, use your laptop or just enjoy a glass of wine.
John is the preeminent host - gracious, thoughtful and well acquainted with his city. His guest house is a haven away from home; tastefully decorated, fully equipped and quiet. I have known this man for 30 years and would (and have) stayed with him on many occasions. Just an FYI - he makes terrific coffee (strong), always has half&half in his refrigerator, and gets up early! He's one of the best guys ever!
