VEGAN PARADISE!

I am vegan, as are many of my guests. So I ask that guests not bring meat, fish, eggs or dairy products into the house. If you have any questions or problems with any of this, please let me know, and we can talk about it.

If you are vegan or just interested in enjoying more healthy plant-based meals, this is your PARADISE!

With over 70 VEGAN RESTAURANTS and FOOD CARTS and over 70 more that are either almost all vegan or super-vegan friendly, Portland is known as the vegan capital of the world, and this room is close to many of them.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

Keeping in touch with me around your arrival times and departures will allow me to greet you upon arrival, hand you the key, and otherwise plan for you.

If you’re coming from another country, getting international texting or calling on your phone will make it easier for you to reach me if/when needed.

I've lived in Portland for a long time and know the city and region well. I'm an easy-going guy with some world travel under my belt. I'm into natural and sustainable living, culture, and Oregon's countryside and wilderness. In my shared home, while giving you plenty of space, I am friendly and conversant, and am able and happy to guide you to whatever entertainment, outdoor adventure, and cuisine you may be in the mood for. If you are vegetarian, vegan or just curious about or enjoy plant-based cuisine, I have been vegan since 1990 and am tuned into the vegan community and the plethora of vegan/plant based shops, restaurants, bars and activities in town and am happy to give you some ideas of where to grab that kind of grub to your heart's delight.

Guests are welcome to enjoy use of the kitchen, living room, dining room, front porch and patio.
