This is a lovely flat. Clean and chock full of entertainment, including toys for the children. But nothing was more exciting than the backyard chickens! Dana was very friendly and helpful when we arrived and the house is exactly as listed. Our only complaint was the neighbo…

Response from Dana:
We are absolutely "close to everything" but we may have different definitions of what that means. What I mean by it is that we are within walking distance (1-10 blocks) of: more than a dozen great restaurants and bars, 8-10 cute cafes/coffee shops, 4 grocery stores (including one that is upscale and health conscious, several ice cream/gelato shops, more than a dozen trendy vintage type shops, a library, a community center, 2 parks, the river, 2 movie theaters, a chocolate factory that you can tour, a microbrewery that you can tour, a farmer's market, music venues, I could go on. It is true that we are 15 minutes from most major tourist attractions such as museums, the zoo, Powell's, but so is every other neighborhood in Portland. They are scattered all around the city and 15 minutes from one another. Another location might be close to one, but not the others. There is no place that is close to everything. A location might be downtown but most tourist attractions are not downtown. As far as our neighborhood being "outer Portland", it simply is not true. It is a neighborhood within Portland and you can see downtown from it. Her friends live equally as far from downtown and some of the attractions they were looking to visit but they feel we are "outer Portland" because we are 30 minutes from THEM. This family is from London and has expectations that just don't apply to the way that Portland is laid out.

Fantastic place to stay with an attentive and friendly host Dana. I can’t give a review any better than my 12 yr old daughter: “Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful house! We had a fantastic time. The chickens are lots of fun and the hot tub was amazing too!”

Dana's place was great for our family of four and the St. Johns neighborhood exceeded our expectations. It's only a short pleasant drive across the iconic St. Johns bridge into downtown Portland, but St. Johns has everything you need right there. Dana was very quick to respo…

Space was perfect for a family and close to university of Portland. Clean and is family friendly for all ages with activities for kids such as karaoke!

One of the best things we liked about this place was its location -- smack dab in the middle of grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, and absolutely great just to walk everywhere. Such a quaint neighborhood to experience. Except for a small undercounter refrigerator, the spa…
