Some things that I'd like you to know:
1) please keep the fence gates locked so the dog, Jerry, doesn't escape. He's very friendly, and may try to visit you in the casita. Your choice if he comes in or stays out. He mostly stays indoors in the main house.
2) please be considerate of the neighbors, esp. after 9:30PM.
3) try to conserve water & energy, separate compost, trash, recycling
4) Please no overnight guests other than the registered ones appreciated (but you can always check with me).
5) No smoking indoors, please. 420 friendly
Beyond that, please call/text me so I can answer your questions, meet your needs, and do what I can to make sure your time at Casa Laurita is relaxing and memorable.
We had an absolutely wonderful experience at Laurie's casita! The house itself was adorable. It was neat, comfortable and well-appointed with everything we needed to feel comfortable and self-sufficient for a full week (including a full kitchen with coffee maker, a washer/dryer and a comfy bed). We appreciated the lushness of the yard, the natural light inside and the feeling of having enough space and privacy. The location was perfect — close to Mount Tabor and within walking distance of the restaurants, coffee shops and bars on Hawthorne and Division (definitely recommend Porque No and The Woodsman Tavern!). Laurie was very welcoming and made clear that she was available for anything we needed throughout our stay.
Lovely casita indeed...in every respect. A peaceful garden to enjoy quiet time outdoors; compact, comfortable, well appointed living spaces; close to many fascinating neighborhoods; gracious hostess. A (re)treat in a great town. This sweet stop has everything and then some. Thanks Laurie for your good taste and welcome attitude.
Laurie was a wonderful and welcoming host. She was easy to communicate with. The casita was just as pictured and described. The space was perfect for my husband and I on our week stay. The space is in a great neighborhood, close to small businesses, great restaurants and grocery stores. Jerry, the dog, was awesome and was a wonderful treat during out time here. We felt at home here and would definitely recommend the casita to others.
We couldn't have found a more perfect place to stay for our 2-month visit to Portland. Casita was as described: cozy, perfect for two guests, great location to awesome shops, restaurants, and bars on Division and Hawthorne with a nice walk to shops on Belmont. There was a variety of food trucks within walking distance. Parking our car was easy-some neighborhoods have more apartment complexes and thus more street parking but this street always had vacancy. We loved our stay here and would stay here again without a doubt! Laurie was helpful and available when needed yet gave us our privacy. We adore her dog, Jerry. :) This casita definitely was a home away from home!
My mother and sister stayed and they said they enjoyed it and that both beds were comfortable. Laurie was friendly, I only talked with her once during check in. The location is great being so close to Hawthorne and Division. The place was clean and cozy.
The location was perfect. Within walking distance to Hawthorne Fish House, The Whole Bowl, Por Que No? and more. Easy check-in and lots of privacy. It was extremely helpful having a washer & dryer plus kitchen in the casita. I enjoyed my stay.
This was my first stay a an Airbnb, and if I return to this area in need of lodging, I hope Laurie's casita is available. My one word to describe it? Perfect. Laurie has paid attention to every detail in visual charm and in ones stay being so comfortable. The purpose of this trip was to explore the possibility of relocation to the area. Laurie was so helpful with information of the different neighborhoods and what they had to offer. I think if she could, my daughter would have liked to have taken up long term residence here.
