While I have been doing AirBnB for a couple years now, my parents had not. I will admit they were skeptical about the whole thing, but by the end of our week here, this place made my parents into believers! We loved how cozy and comfortable the house was. The kitchen was very well stocked with the essentials to make all of the meals we had and the grill outside was perfect for a Fourth of July barbecue. The bedrooms were perfect for our use and the bathroom was spotless and had big white towels ready for our use. The location was ideal for everything we wanted to do: close enough to downtown for the Saturday Market and a short drive to the country for the various u-pick farms and wineries we explored. Thanks Michael for helping my parents accept and embrace AirBnB. They're already looking forward to booking another stay here soon!

My family was in town for a wedding and Michael's place was spot on. Very clean and homey. We really appreciated the pastries and the nice touches. If available I highly recommend it. We hope to visit again!

My family and I live in SW Portland, and we love it here because of the city's appreciation for nature and knowledge. We frequently visit libraries, museums, and natural areas across the city and beyond.

I studied the history of science in school, and now I love being a stay-at-home dad. I do what I can to get my kids outside and connected to nature as much as possible, and love encouraging other parents to do so. I blog about this at Exploring Portland's Natural Areas.

My wife, Catherine is a librarian, a gardener and a gleaner. She speaks Spanish. Mi esposa habla español. Our book-loving son is in elementary school, and our daughter is a happy and active preschooler.

We'll be happy to share our favorite natural areas to explore and things to do in Portland and our nearby neighborhoods.
