The Space

This funky, remodeled Victorian house in the heart of the Hawthorne neighborhood is a perfect spot for exploring Portland. Two blocks from the bustling Hawthorne district and three blocks from the locals hangout on Belmont Street, enjoy all the city has to offer from this lovely neighborhood.

This is a 1907 Victorian house in Sunnyside neighborhood in the Hawthorne district. It is also near the bustling Belmont neighborhood.

Guests should expect to live in a spacious house with a claw foot tub, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful porch and yard, and cozy stove for the winter months. There are two rooms in this house - one upstairs with a queen bed and one in the basement with a futon, heat and cable TV. There is also a closet for hanging clothes in the basement and the washer and dryer is there as well. Host provides coffee and cream for guests and sometimes a baked good!

Sunnyside is in Inner Southeast Portland in the Hawthorne district. It is walking distance to restaurants on Hawthorne, Belmont district, shops, grocery stores, bus lines, etc. Getting to the MAX is not easy to do in this neighborhood but everything else is very accessible.

This place is lovely -- an oasis in the city. The house is in a vibrant neighborhood but is on a dead end street so doesn't get disruptive foot traffic. There is a porch to have coffee or cocktails on and people watch and is an easy place to hang your hat for your city adventures.

Guests have access to all bathrooms (1.5), one bedroom upstairs, the entire main floor and the basement. Off limits are 2 of the upstairs bedrooms. Guests will always be on their own here.

I will be there most often to meet guests when they check in and will be available to them but won't be staying there. I am available to guests by phone, or messaging through Airbnb and will respond very quickly to their needs.

The Hawthorne/Belmont (Sunnyside) neighborhood in SE Portland provides everything you have heard about Portland and more. Neighborhood book boxes, poetry posts, coffee shops, restaurants, chickens - it is a lovely spot to call a home base while exploring Portland.

Yes, there is street parking and guests can catch the 14 on Hawthorne, 2 blocks away and the 15 on Belmont, 3 blocks away.

  • Amy was an amazing host and my mother and I had a great trip to Portland in large part because of our wonderful lodgings.

    The house was wonderful -- full of charm at every turn, and we loved drinking wine on the front porch most nights -- although the back patio is a big draw too!

    Location was amazing, just blocks to great shops and places to eat on Hawthorne and Division. We even arrived to a homemade pie! We went out a few nights, but also loved cooking in this great kitchen and listening to the great music selection. Who knew we would love Brandi Carlile so much?

    The few times we needed to communicate with Amy, she was quick to text and super helpful.

    Even writing all of this makes me nostalgic already. I would absolutely recommend staying here and will go back the first chance I get.

  • Amy is a very accommodating host and her house was perfect for us. The location is also great just a few blocks from Hawthorne's food scene. We could walk basically anywhere.

    When I come back to Portland again I'll definitely want to stay here.

  • Communication with Amy was very easy and the house is cute and in a great location. The floors were being done when we were there, so the upstairs felt a little dingy. And there is nowhere upstairs to hang clothes or much room to put a suitcase, so we ended up with our stuff all over the hallway. We had two young children and he second bedroom is very far away in the basement, so it didn't work out leaving them sleeping alone down there. I would recommend this home for a couple, but not more than two people.

  • My mom and I had a great time in this amazingly cute house! I wish we could have stayed more than one night so we could have used it more! Such a cute space! The back porch was great for relaxing and the tub was as well :)
    There were also lots of places to walk to and grab coffee, food, amazing shoes...etc. Thanks so much for letting us stay here!

  • Staying at Amy's was effortless and convenient. She left good specific instructions. The house is located close to great restaurants, breweries, and shops on Belmont, Hawthorne and Division. It has a great living room with fireplace to get cozy by on rainy days. Lots of local food mags. Full kitchen, nice backyard. Overall a wonderful stay.
