The space

We've gone through every review and upgraded EVERYTHING. Moved Beca's massage room offsite & created 2nd full BR & much larger living room. This awesome 2 BR apartment in an excellent location; "DT Vancouver is the new PDX "(but PDX is just 6 mile drive.. Literally a short stroll away from many groovy, brewpubs, stores, etc (Uptown Vancouver). Both bedrooms now have doors. Gym moved to where the massage room was now space is 300 square feet bigger! New garbage disposal. Space has private door upstairs & at rear exit/entrance point for optimal privacy.

Interaction with guests

We are very friendly but interaction is often situational (some guests like to do their own thing). We are VERY OPEN TO SUGGESTING EXCELLENT restaurants, bars, hangouts, swimming holes, etc. sometimes we busy working, other times just chilling out. But we are both honest, good people. We do have a ridiculously friendly black lab and cat. (If yer allergic to cats we can "quarantine

Great place to stay. Smoke alarm was a little inconvenient but they're working on it. Very hospitable hosts and reasonable price. Had a great stay overall.

This was an amazing experience with my family! Eric and Beca were so warm and welcoming when we arrived. They really made us feel really at home. Although it is the beginning of spring and still rainy on occasion, they had tons of tips for outdoor adventures, whether it was raining or sunny out. We were even invited to participate in a family style BBQ. They were just finishing a remodel in the B&B (that's why we got such a steal) so the next occupants will be in for a real treat. Thank you Eric and Beca! Cheers!

Hosts were nice people but the rental was not what we were expecting and we had to check out early. It is their basement (separated from the first floor with a curtain), so it was very damp and the ceilings were (6 ft in some places, difficult for a tall person). There is also not enough soundproofing so any noise from upstairs will travel through, and their baby seemed to be having a bad week, which led to trouble sleeping. The location is convenient to the interstate and downtown Vancouver, which has some fun spots, and the hosts will give recommendations. One of the basement rooms is used for massage clients on occasion, but you can purchase for a discount from the hosts.

The hosts were extremely nice and communicated well. The home is centrally located with easy access to the highway and close to Portland. The two issues we had were with the noise and the overly sensitive fire detector. The apartment is a basement apartment that leads to unavoidable sound from the goings on above you. I am not a sensitive sleeper or fussy person and I was jolted from sleep on a few occasions. The whole house, hard wired fire detector is so sensitive it completely prevents the use of the stove. No exaggeration, could not turn it on without sirens going off. Neighborhood is so-so and the neighbors do not seem very thrilled about the Airbnb next door.

Response from Eric:
Larry's response to neighbors is inaccurate, they had 3 plus cars, which for a short stay would be fine but as 3 week guests they routinely parked them in front of other people's houses, blocking mailboxes, etc., which was unnecessary as we provide a 40' dedicated parking area with security light next to the house. Our neighbors have been quoted as being 'awesome, helpful, and accommodating," but no one desires 2 cars in front of Thier house for days on end when provided adjacent spaces are readily available.

Eric and Becca were wonderful hosts. Very kind people. We stayed for a month with our baby and fur kids while getting settled into the area. One thing I maybe just didn't understand from the listing, but I would call the space "mostly" private. While the kitchen space isn't used by anyone else, people do pass through the area when Becca has a massage appointment. They are very communicative however about when and how long they will be there, which is very considerate of them. And the space is more of a one bedroom plus den (den being the other room with the tv, fold out futon, but no door). Parking is on the street, laundromats not too far away. At times there was a bit of noise from above, but that is to be expected while staying in a basement apartment. Overall, the place was comfortable and cozy. Again, Eric and Becca were absolutely lovely hosts. Thank you for welcoming us to the area!
