Listing Info for Auntie's Hideaway--Daylight Studio Secret Garden

Vic and Nan, Bay Area, 2012: We recommend the Johnson House hands down, and we are seasoned travelers. Great value. Hip host. They have something special here. Jessica and Doug Warren, August 2016: We rank the Johnson House among the best properties we've seen. All five-stars! The gardens are wonderful. Jean is welcoming and warm. The cottage is very clean and has everything you need. The location proved to be a great home base and we easily got to all of our Portland destinations within 20 minutes. *Rustic elegance, Portland-style*Daylight basement studio with double egress window for extra lighting*Queen bed...

ABOUT THE HOST: A native Portlander and member of the family who lives on site, host Jean Johnson likes to share her take on Portland's best. She helps orient guests when they arrive and is available throughout guests' stays. Jean is a retired American historian and realtor. THE NEIGHBORHOOD: We are 10 minutes from the airport and 20 to downtown. Also 3 of Portland's hip neighborhoods-The Beaumont, Alberta Arts, and Mississippi Avenue-are 15 minutes away. We're also on the east side of the city, where it's easy to hop on the freeway to the Columbia River Gorge, listed on the National Scenic Registry. We are in walking distance of Noodle Flat, home of Portland's Asian restaurants line Sandy Boulevard. A major grocery is 3 blocks away, as is the historic Fairley's Pharmacy and Portland's best doughnuts at AnniesSOLO TRAVELERS: Jean is also willing to include guests in her doings whether it be going for a Chinese foot massage, bicycling to New Seasons (Portland's small chain of natural food markets that has put local farm families back on their feet), going for meditation and garden work parties at the 14-acre neighborhood Zen center, and hill walking Portland's neighborhoods. REVIEWS:Erin and Todd, BC, 2011: The air is totally crisp and clean in this first rate daylight basement studio. Paint entirely up-to-date and terra cotta Mexican pavers on the galley that are to die for. They go the extra mile here. Gabon and Charles, Chicago, 2013: Auntie's is just minutes away from everything. Two blocks off Sandy Boulevard that takes you to downtown in 20 minutes and around the corner from Fremont St. that leads to 3 of Portland's newest hip neighborhoods. So great coffee, food, sights, and wine are all to be had easily from this lovely, unique homestay. Bob and Beth, Arizona, 2014: A 5-star shower that is the best by far we've ever seen. Plus, there is a big window for light in the lovely sitting area and a fab queen bed. Jean goes for quality from the mattress to the linens. The family has obviously put a lot of love into her property, and it shows! Ryan and Lydia, May 2015: Everything at Jean's is fantastic! We stayed in Auntie's Hideaway for about two weeks while we waited for our new apartment to be ready. Truly a cut above. .
