Our stay at Rick's place was perfection! He was excellent to communicate with and was flexible with adding extra guests last minute! His house is lovely and everything that we hoped for. There was a nice amount of separation from his space so it felt nicely secluded even though y…

This place is great - very quiet, tastefully decorated, with comfortable beds, furniture, and a great living room, sitting room and patio. Rick is very friendly and helpful if you need directions or ideas about where to eat, drink, etc.

The mood and the decor of this place is fabulous, just as advertised. The suite is comfortable for three people, but be warned there is not door separating your suite from the main house, or designated off-street parking. If you know this going in, then enjoy the oasis that the o…

Thank you for the kind words regarding the mood and decor of my home. I am glad you enjoyed the space, and I'm glad you found it comfortable. I really did enjoy having you and your family stay! After reading your comments I went and re-read my description to make sure I had not implied that I had dedicated parking, and I had not. I have since added more detailed information about the parking. I was especially perplexed by your claim that there was No door separating the bedroom suite from the common area. My place is listed as a 'Private room' vs. an 'Entire home', implying that there is some shared space. I feel the folding mahogany door separating the spaces is exactly as I describe in my listing, and I have since added pictures to assure everyone it exists. I have always found the extra layer of privacy that door provides comforting, especially at night. When the request to book the rooms was sent I initially hesitated to accept, as you had no reviews, suggesting this might be your first airbnb guest experience. I am a fairly new at hosting, but open and trusting enough to throw caution the wind and hope for the best. I'm sorry if the experience wasn't quite what you were expecting. I suppose we both could have asked more questions.

The views are outstanding both inside and out. Rick is very talented with both his interior design and beautiful gardens. An added bonus is easy accessibility to town. Rick was a welcoming host and helpful with touring and dining suggestions.

Rick's home is an awesome place to stay at while visiting Portland. It's close to downtown Portland and is walking distance to St. Johns. So you can either walk or jump in the car for a short drive to get something to eat. The accommodations are clean and private and comes with…

We're very happy that we chose Rick's place for our first Portland visit. The view was awesome, but the direct environment of Rick's house was completely peaceful and relaxing. Great interior design and privacy.

The St Johns/Cathedral Park neighborhood is like no other in Portland. Indeed, St Johns started out as it's own small town and still very much has that feel. It's location near the tip of the peninsu…
