We had a lovely time. John's apartment is charming and clean. Great, walkable neighborhood, gorgeous old building with original features. Well appointed and thoughtfully outfitted. If you are a picky sleeper like me, I might recommend bringing sheets as the ones provided -while new and clean- are synthetic. All in all a great experience, the host was prompt and helpful with all communication.
We had the most wonderful time at John's apartment - it was clean, beautifully decorated and appointed with everything we could need (including a fully equipped kitchen and onsite laundry). The apartment is located in a very pretty and happening area of Portland (confirmed by our sighting of Portlandia/SNL comedian, Fred Armisen) with numerous restaurants, shops, and music venues within walking distance. It's also very close to Washington and Forest Parks should you be inspired to go for a hike.
John was an excellent host - quickly responding to our questions and even allowing us to check out a bit later so we didn't have to lug our bags around the city while we waited for our rental car.
If you are visiting Portland this is the definitely the place you want to stay. We can't wait to come back.
John was an absolutely wonderful host. He gave us some GREAT suggestions for food in the area and was more than helpful with anything that we needed. He always responded promptly to my texts, which is awesome.
The apartment itself was clean and very homey. The wall is actually a pull down bed, which was just about the coolest thing my husband and I had ever seen. Towels, sheets, and pillows were provided and clean.
The apartment complex is charming with a cute courtyard in the center that's ideal for reading. There's also a neighbor who plays the piano beautifully which is amazingly relaxing.
Located within walking distance of the MAX (the local lighrail) it was a cinch to get anywhere in town we wanted to go. It's also just blocks away from THE BEST ice cream I've ever had at the Salt & Straw.
All in all, I had a wonderful experience at John's place and will be renting from him again if I ever find myself in Portland again!
John's apartment could not have been more perfect. It is better than advertised and the surrounding Alphabet district was a perfect place to come home to each night. We didn't have a car but one was not needed. The place was a short walk from the rail station. Really it was a short walk from everywhere including to the Timbers game we went to one night and the car rental place that we used to go hiking in the Columbia river gorge. We were able to do laundry for free as well. This was our first time to Portland and if we ever came back we would definitely stay at John's.
Great stay in Johns place, which is perfectly located for Portland and all it has to offer. Right near NW21st and 23rd streets which are great for food, bars and shopping. The place was as described and as per the pictures - just right for 2 people.
Just one thing to note, that isn't Johns fault - parking is a bit of an issue, and in theory isn't free all day on premises as described.
Overall, a really good stay. Would recommend.
John was very helpful for food and entertainment tips for the Portland area. Very responsive to questions. Location is great, unit is clean and perfect for anyone wanting to experience Portland. I would highly recommend booking with John for anyone.
The reservation was canceled 51 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This place was awesome! Great location in the Alphabet District, short walk to some great restaurants, shops, and public transportation is nearby if you want to head out to other areas of Portland.
Check-in process was a breeze, and John answered any questions I had via email or text within minutes.
This was our first trip to Portland; we're already talking about coming back for a longer stay. When we do, I really hope that this place is available.
John was a great host and the apartment was perfect for our short stay in Portland. I even thought I had left my shirt at his apartment and he went to great lengths to look for it. It ended up being stuck in the bottom of my luggage, but John was so great about getting back to me. If you're looking for a courteous host in a lovely neighborhood and don't need a ton of room, definitely look up this place!
It is a fantastic location, very close to 23rd, the International Rose Garden and downtown (30 minute walk or less than 10 with Max). The apartment is spacious, warm and comfortable. I felt like I was home is a typical Portland residential neighborhood. Although I didn't meet John in person, he was very nice and helpful by email and over the phone. Thank you!
Great guest. Friendly, polite and tidy.
I can highly recommend John as a guest.
John is not only a great friend, but a fun, respectful travel buddy. Always the good host, John has great taste, is clean, and an upstanding person. Everyone should have a John. No , seriously :)
