About this listing

Perfectly situated one mile from downtown and on the edge of the SE Arts District- location doesn't get much better than this! Live like a local and experience Portland in this cozy three bedroom private lower level flat.

The space

Almost all the main attractions in Portland are located within a two mile radius of the Hawthorne Hideaway. It's easily accessible by foot or nearby public transportation.

Guest access

You will have your own 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, kitchen (dining table, full fridge, sink, 1 burner, microwave, toaster oven) living room, laundry and a private entrance. There is an additional pull out sofa in the living area if it is needed. The hide-away is the lower level apartment in a large historic house on the edge of Ladds Addition. It's about 1000 sq. ft of space.

Interaction with guests

*Your flat is self contained, so if you want, you can spend your stay in complete privacy.

*Having said that we all enjoy meeting new friends. My husband Vic's personal love language is coffee, and His hobby is custom roasting, so you probably will get a chance to sample his special wares before you leave.

*The front porch, as well as the fire pit area are public spaces that you are welcome to use and share with the other unit.

Other things to note

*We have a fire pit area in our back yard and also a porch and charcoal grill you're welcome to use (this area is shared with our other unit).

*You'll find ample parking for your bikes. There are numerous security options to help put your mind at rest when it comes to your wheels.

*Flat has lower than normal ceilings- approximately 7+ feet.

*No off street parking available. If you have large RV's or trailers be prepared for parking challenges.

*Our wireless internet is truly "high speed" with enough bandwidth for all of you to stream Netflix if you want.

*The apartment includes a 32" Samsung HD Smart TV with Netflix and HuluPlus included as well as local digital broadcast channels. A wireless keyboard allows easy on screen web browsing.

*If you have any other special requests, please let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

Kathy was an exceptional host, and her home warm and friendly! We were a group of 7 visiting Portland from around the states. With a cooperative group of people, sharing a single bathroom was no issue, and the shower is exceptional. The space worked very well for sleeping and recouping after long days out and about. As described, it is able to be a very private and quiet space, with a separate side entrance and all. Being such a large group, we were rather busy, and Kathy gave us space, but was immediately available if needed for some accommodation, suggestions, or just to have a friendly chat. Her home is located right near a main strip with several restaurants and shops nearby and the neighborhood is beautiful. It is perfect for a stroll or a run. A short walk will get you to transport and the bigger streets (hawthorne + division). The riverfront park is not that far off (just over a 20 min+ walk) and ubers/lyfts are abundant for other transport needs. We rented a van and never had problems finding parking nearby. The only shortcoming was that the kitchen is lacking a full stove/oven if you are wanting to cook up something elaborate, but with so many options to eat/get premade food around (as well as a full sized fridge + skillet + microwave + toaster oven + single burner), we found this to be a non-issue. Would greatly recommend staying here! :)

Kathy was a great host. She was available for questions about anything at all times. The property was cute & comfortable for all 6 of us. It was a little noisy but we expected it & it wasn't a bother. The location is amazing. We spent most of our vacation on foot at locations near the rental.
