The Space

Bedroom in nice old house. Share bathroom w/ one other. $200/ week, private bedroom. Share living room, kitchen, house. Free internet.. You can walk/bike/bus anywhere. Restaurants, movies, bars, library, Powells Books! just few blocks away. Very quiet neighborhood. The best of Portland! Get a sample of the good life. Good life with just a single bed (room is for solo travelers) Sometimes one other guest will share bathroom, but lots of room. Hang out on front porch, or take in sun on back deck. You can expect it to be pretty quiet, pretty chill. Good house for sleeping. The neighborhood has small families, a few good kids, occasional basketball in the street. A block away is a New Seasons market with a breakfast buffet- $2.-$7. Also near a pub with seasonal brews, and 2-3 blocks from many other restaurants, bars, movie theatre, supermarket, banks, etc. Public transit (bus) is just around the corner. We are 10-15 minutes from downtown.
This is the most awesome neighborhood in Portland. Not overrun with hipsters, not overly gentrified, pleasantly diverse.. Is a super safe area. I have lived here for 20 years. It has not always been this way, but it is so perfect now. Come enjoy!!

  • Kit was so great! Kind and welcoming!

    June 2014
  • Had a very pleasant stay, the room was lovely and Kit was a great host. The location is super convenient - I had to be downtown for a course on both mornings and it took me 20 minutes to get there via the #14 bus. Will stay there again next time I'm in Portland :)

  • Kit was very kind and her home was comfortable and in a great location. I would definitely recommend Heart on Hawthorne.

  • Kit doesn't work very far from her house so when I got to the area I contacted her and she left work to meet me. Kit`s place is centrally located which makes walking a breeze and catching the bus to downtown even easier. The room is moderately sized and unless you are a couple the bed is really only meant for one person. There is a shared bathroom but that wasn't an issue and you are allowed full access to the kitchen, which was unnecessary for me as I had no intention to buy groceries or do any sort of cooking.

    She was very welcoming and the other resident has a room downstairs so I saw him occasionally but he's easy to talk to and keeps to himself. There is a small dog that is primarily upstairs but will sometimes wander to your floor and into your room if you leave the door open. Because of this it is advised that you leave your door closed if you have food in your bag.

    I would definitely stay here again or, since I found a place to live while up there, recommend it to friends as a place to stay when visiting me.

  • This was a very pleasant experience, really enjoyed it. Kit is a great host, so is the house, room and the amenities in and around the house. The bus connection to downtown also works pretty well. Really recommend it...

  • Kit was absolutely wonderful. She was very helpful with directions and had many suggestions of where to go for reasonably priced food. The bed was one of the best things I've ever slept on and the entire house has so much charm. I'd recommend staying with Kit to anyone looking for a great spot in a fantastic Portland location!

  • I highly recommend staying at Kit's place! The location is perfect, shops, restaurants, park is nearby. the house is in a quiet, green neighborhood, but you find all you need just around the corner. Public transportation to other parts of the city is easily accessible.The house is welcoming, clean and comfortable. I had a wonderful time here, I hope to return one day.

  • I had a great experience staying with Kit. Her, her home and her dog, Rocky, are all delightful. It's a good neighborhood and a quiet home. I would recommend it to anyone.

    May 2014
  • Kit has a great location in the Hawthorne area. Very close to eclectic shops including Powell's books and lots of healthy choices to eat nearby. Loved my visit in Portland!

    May 2014
  • I enjoyed staying at Kit's place. Location, location, location. It was great for walking around and exploring the Hawthorne District. Her neighborhood is very safe and her neighbors were friendly. The room was comfortable, and Kit was an excellent host who made me feel very much at home right away. She offered great suggestions for places to eat, where to hike, and she even offered to mail to me my vest that I left in the room. I would stay there again.

The house is a 1912 Bungalow, clean and peaceful, and you will get the best of Portland here. Walking distance to restaurants, shops, movies, Powells (on Hawthorne.) The neighborhood is super safe, and quiet. The house is quiet, but comfortable, as well. I've had a variety of different roomates over the years, but currently I just want to enjoy guests like yourself. (No roomates). The room is on the main floor, near a bathroom. I live upstairs and have my own bathroom. I come down to use the kitchen, and take my little dog outside. I work 3-4 days or eves a week (RN). My job is just a mile away. I'm pretty easy going, and I don't set out a breakfast, as New Seasons and Fred Meyer are a block away, but I share my Olive oil. You can smoke on the front porch if you like. I'm glad to go have a beer with you , or a cup of Joe if you like!
