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.
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.
We had a great time in the Casita. Tom let us in while Laurie was traveling. He was a very sweet gentleman and was able to answer any issues that arose within a few hours of notifying him. Laurie was a wonderful host and even helped us find household items for our new apartment. And Jerry is an adorable dog; he would come in and lay down while I read. It made the place feel very much like home to have him there.
The Casita was clean and well appointed with everything you could need from small appliances to cutlery to shampoo. A really wonderful place to stay if you are visiting or moving to Portland. Also, it is in one of the most interesting and fun neighborhoods in Portland. So you are a short walk from great restaurants and shops and grocery stores just a handful of blocks away.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Casita! It was quaint and charming and had everything we needed. We enjoyed meeting Laura (Tom wasn't there at the time). We had quiet privacy, nice breezes, and easy coming and going to explore the area. We felt it was a very good value for the price!
Great place and great location, very comfortable and convenient. Enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.
It was such a beautiful spot, private and had everything you need inside the small house. We loved it!
