“Very Cozy Studio”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2013

This is a clean, light filled, cozy studio in the rear of the main house. It is very quiet and is reached by stairs in the garage. It is ideal for one person with a very comfortable queen bed and a well appointed tile bath. There is a toaster oven, microwave, a two burner stove and small refrigerator, perfect to reheat purchased meals. My husband and I stayed in the studio for a week and were quite comfortable. The hot tub, grill and porches are also for your use. The studio is close to two nice neighborhoods with shops, coffee bars and restaurants. Public transportation is close by with rapid access to downtown. The owner, Ken is very friendly and helpful. We are planning to go back next year.

“Loved the space, disappointed in the business transaction”

Reviewed 9 May 2013

The studio is quite lovely and comfortable. I appreciated the attention to detail like thick, plush rugs and towels. The location is quiet and peaceful yet near shopping and restaurants. If you are a coffee snob like me, bring a french press, the coffee pot could use some updating. I did share the room with some sugar ants who occupied the window. Beware that the "refundable" cleaning deposit is not entirely refundable. When I e-mailed the owner and asked about the total charge for two nights the response was: "The daily rate for the Studio is $85 a night or $170 for your stay. These prices include all local bed taxes. A refundable $50 cleaning deposit is required for those dates." I assumed that if I didn't break or steal anything or leave a huge mess that my $50 would be refunded. Not so. After 48 hours of having vacated the studio I e-mailed the owner to ask about how they refunded the cleaning deposit and received no reply. After another 48 hours I called and found out that the deposit is only refundable if you wash the sheets and towels, clean the toilet and shower, wash all your dishes, make the bed, and vacuum. This was not made clear on the web site or in our communications before hand. I arrived after midnight the first night and left at 8 am two days later and did not see my host all weekend. I spent a total of 6 waking hours in the studio and used one glass, one spoon, and the coffee pot. After more than 4 days I have yet to receive any refund. When I called to reserve the space my card was charged within minutes. I probably won't stay here again.

Response from the owner Please read the other reviews for the Artist Studio for a more accurate view of the space. This guest is just very hard to please. I made special arrangements to allow the guest to check in at 1 AM in the morning. I left the garage door open to access the Studio at the risk of robbery. The cleaning instructions were left on the table in the Studio and the guest chose not to clean at all. I did not receive an e-mail about the cleaning just the phone call. I explained that the room rate is kept low but the renter can choose to clean or not. She chose not to clean at all and assumed that she should get her deposit back. Besides the Studio, the renter had spa or hot tub access and a garage for her car. She did get a 50% refund on her $50 deposit but that did not make her happy. She did not see the host as she came in late at night and left early in the mornings. I did text here to see if she was happy. She said the Studio was great.

“Portland retreat”

Reviewed 26 Jan 2011

Ken was a wonderful host for our 3-day stay in Portland. He provided us with some wonderful restaurant recommendations. His studio provided us with just the right amenities, privacy and comfort for our visit. It was a nice change to stay in a neighborhood, instead fo a downtown location, since it was conveniently located to our family

Response from the owner Hi, Cheryl; Thank you and I look forward to your next visit.

“Winter Sanctuary”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2011

I met Ken the host at a Yoga retreat and shortly after was working in Portland and in need of a place to stay. Ken rented me the apt over his two car garage. It has a nice private bath and is a comfortable space. The floor was a tad chilly in Jan. but one can always take a hot tub or just enjoy Ken's warm and friendly company.

Response from the owner Thank you, George. It was a pleasure to have you on the property.
