About Brian Dessinger

I hate talking about myself, but I have bought and sold many properties over the years bought my first house at 21 in Portland. Since I grew up in Portland and can't imagine living anyplace else. Ok, Well I could see myself living in Germany, only because it's so much like Portland beer and all. I have watched Portland change all for the good. I can also offer some suggestions of places to go and things to do. I spend most of my time outdoors, jet skiing, biking, running, skiing and snowboarding in the winter. I keep very active in fun runs, IE Warrior Dash, Marathons, Triathlons and anything else that might sound interesting at the time. Call me anytime or e-mail with any suggestions you might have or might want.

Brian Dessinger purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Brian Dessinger chose Portland

I just decided to convert this townhouse from a month to month to a vacation rental. Why this Property? Close to downtown, affordable, easy access to downtown and other neighborhoods close by.

Convenient. Manageable size.

Comes with all necessary cooking equipment, ice machine, coffee maker, iron, etc.

Only thing I would recommend is a more comfortable bed/convertible in the living room.

Amazing Portland experience

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I've used HomeAway and I am very impressed with it. Brian's home was very clean, updated and in a great location. Brian accommodated us from way before our trip; he allowed us to check in early and check out late. He always kept me updated with the property and responded promptly to any inquiries. We will be staying here every time we visit Portland. Thank you so much Brian!!!!

Great condo but it was chilly inside!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Brian's condo December 20-27th while visiting our son for Christmas. The condo is very comfortable and is well equipped. I don't think there was one thing that we were lacking in the kitchen since we cooked more than a few large dinners there for eight of us, which was much appreciated. The beds were very comfortable! I appreciate Brian allowing us to have our kids over because of my son's apartment being too small for all of us. There were two issues that we encountered: The first was the lack of street parking most days, which is by no means Brian's fault. It just seemed that every time we needed a parking space, there were none available. Had to haul stuff quite a ways on some days from the parked car a block or two away. The second issue was the heating in the condo. I had contacted Brian I believe on Christmas Eve to discuss the heat "not holding" on the thermostat and apparently a "flipped switch on the circuit breaker" would take care of it. Unfortunately, the temperature of the condo got down to below 60 degrees overnight most nights and we could not keep the condo comfortable. I contacted Brian two more times about this issue and once was totally ignored and the second time (which was the day we were leaving), he said he would "look into it." I think it should've been taken care of immediately, even though it was close to the holidays. I was freezing the entire time I was in this condo in Portland, and I'm from Michigan! I hope that Brian has taken care of this issue so that no one else has to deal with it. All-in-all, I was pretty satisfied with our stay. I would've given this a 5-star review had the heating issues been addressed right away. I would stay again if I was assured that I would not be cold the whole time I was there!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you felt ignored this was during Christmas and I was attending my own family function and getting someone to come on christmas would be next to impossible. After you switched the breaker you had said the heat came on and I had a furnace guy come out and say nothing was wrong with it and was working fine. As far as the parking goes there is a garage space and anyone is more that welcome to use the garage. Not sure why you wouldn't use that instead.

Very comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect and exactly as described, very clean, quiet, yet walking distance to restaurants and city life. The home was very comfortable, I would not hesitate to stay here again. There were many extras that are not even mentioned, there was a chromecast hooked up to the tv, which allowed pandora, netflix etc. Bikes in the garage, although, we did not use them.

Perfect stay, thanks Brian
