“Peaceful, quiet, and a perfect stay!”

My girlfriend and I planned this vacation from August 30th-September 3rd. We had not taken a vacation in two years and desperately needed one. I chose this studio apartment because of all the great reviews and the price. It was the perfect place to stay during our trip. I would have loved to stay there the whole week we were there (we left Portland September 6th) but the weekend at the end of our trip was already booked so we stayed until Thursday.
Ken is wonderful! Such a sweet man and his home is so lovely. The studio apartment is completely separate from the main house on the property. He gives you your own spot in the garage and the entrance to the studio is attached through the garage and located above. So peaceful and private. There were nights when we got hungry at 10 PM and left to find food and we didn't have to worry about waking anyone up when we returned. Ken provides keys and your own garage door clicker for convenience.
We ate out a lot during this trip because we had so many recommendations that we wanted to try out. Ken provides a small kitchen which works great for small meals or heating up leftovers. We had no problem whatsoever and didn't need anything he didn't already provide for us. The bed was comfortable and we had so much space! The bathroom was better than the one we have in our own house!
We didn't use the hot tub but Ken did show us where it was located, and gave us towels to use as well. We just never had time to use it, sadly.

Liked least: If I had to pick something, the shades on the skylights don't block out too much sun. But they are skylights, duh.

“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Traveled to Portland for a weekend of exploring the city. Did not have a car, but the bus stop was conveniently located down the hill. Be aware that the walk from the bus stop is quite steep and our under 30 year old legs needed a break once we got to the top. The walk down is a breeze!

When we arrived, Ken made gaining access to the studio very easy. The studio was clean and welcoming. The size and layout was perfect for two adults. We used the refrigerator but did not use any of the other kitchen accessory but it was nice to have them there just in case.

The only thing holding us back from giving 5 stars was the outdoor space. We enjoy sitting outside and there were some chairs on the back patio and front porch of the house (the studio is not connected to the house). I am sure we could have sat in them, but we felt weird about invading another guest's privacy or space. We would have felt more comfortable if there were a few outside chairs not on the porch of the house or if there were written direction stating that the chairs were for all. Picky, I know! We just really enjoy sitting outside comfortably.

Thank you, Ken for a wonderful stay!

Thank you for the review. I am glad you enjoyed the Studio and your visit to Portland.The chairs on the decks are for all to use, as there are 3 units on the property. I wish you had asked as I would have clarified the situation and put more chairs near the Studio. Welcome back next time.

We loved our stay here.
The owner was extremely nice and was very accommodating for our late arrival.
The room was cozy, and with it being offset from the house, we felt like we had our own little space.
We look forward to our next return.

This property is located in an upscale neighborhood (no sidewalks, lots of trees) and the area is quiet, restful and safe.
Ken is a very friendly host and makes his guests feel at home and truly welcomed.
The Artist Studio is very nicely renovated and is decorated and furnished with quality furnishings.
As a traveler, himself, Ken has stocked the studio with everything a guest needs.
I will stay a month and if I return to the Portland area, I will want to stay here!!!

Having never been to Portland before I found the artist studio to be a great location. Very close to interstates, a 10 minute drive into downtown, and plenty of places near by the get gas, food, anything you really need. Also a perfect space for someone traveling solo. Didn't have any issues whatsoever. I would definitely stay here again.

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.
