This adorable little southeast Portland bungalow turned 100 this year! Come visit and celebrate in this hip, walkable neighborhood!
A stone's throw from some of Portland's favorite hot spots. Enjoy your time in this neighborhood sipping bourbon & ginger at the Victory Bar, nibbling on chicken wings at Pok Pok, or taking a yoga class at one of the yoga studios within a short walk.
The travel section of the New York Times just this summer (July 23, 2013) featured two restaurants (Ava Gene’s & Roe) that are both within about a 5-10 minute walk from the house!
Or, you could just stay in and watch a movie or TV (including a wide selection of my own DVD collection, HBO and/or Netflix) or BBQ in the backyard or sit around the fire pit with the guitar.
The house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. (The total beds among the three bedrooms are 2 queens, 1 full, 2 twins.)
The house has wi-fi, plenty of DVDs to watch on a flat screen TV, hundreds of books for you to peruse & enjoy while you're there, a back deck & patio, a covered front porch and a fully fenced yard (if your puppies are well behaved and leave no trace, they're welcome to join you during your stay).
The neighborhood is very hip, safe & walkable. You can get to the bus stop in less than 30 seconds should you want a convenient & quick ride downtown!
The entire house is yours during your stay!
Interaction with Guests
There's a lockbox for the keys, so your interaction with me will most likely be limited to phone & email contact if you have any questions or issues during your stay.
Do all the good you can,
in all the ways you can,
to all the people you can,
in every place you can, at all times you can,
as long as you ever can.
Pick up after yourself and your pets and your messy friends.
Wash up your dishes.
If your staying when it's cold outside...be mindful of the heat inside - turn it down (about 60° when you leave for the day, 50° at the end of your stay and a comfortably cool temperature at night).
Be respectful of the neighbors.
Enjoy the books, and keep them in good condition.
Enjoy the DVDs, and make sure they get back into their own cases.
The recycling & trash seems to be a sticking point for a lot of guests, the simplified version is as follows: Trash in the small trashcan (there should be very little actual trash). Compost & yard debris in the green can. Glass (only) in the yellow bin. All other recyclables in the blue can. There is a more in depth description of this on the bulletin board in the kitchen along with a pickup schedule.
No tobacco or cigar smoking in the house.
Love the house.
Love the neighborhood. a lot.
We had an excellent time at Amy's! This was our second stay here. The house is so comfortable and charming and in a great location. Six of us were very happy, with lots of sleeping options for a group. We loved sitting on the front porch for coffee, even in February.
We spent our long weekend walking around Hawthorne and Division Streets, eating and checking out the shops. SO many good restaurants close by! The bus to downtown is just a block away too.
Amy was great and we had everything we could possibly need.
Loved the house, and it was perfect for our needs, as everybody had their own spaces. My husband and I had the best bed ever! Since we were cooking, the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The house was quite clean, which is important to me. Our sons loved the eclectic collection of books, with one of them finishing one during our week stay. The dogs were very happy, as was I, because of the fenced yard, but we loved our daily walks through the neighborhood ... and romping at the wonderful dog park at Mt. Tabor Park! There's a great antique/consignment shop just around the corner where I found a couple fun items, and Stumptown was just the right walking distance away. We did make it down to the food trucks for a great meal on foot one cold day. When we arrived at the house, I saw that there was only street parking and was concerned, as it was just off busy Division, but it really turned out to never be a major problem to park close to the house. The house was bright and cheery, and we all enjoyed our stay there. Thank you, Amy!
Amy has a beautiful house in a great neighborhood. The space was perfect for my family over the holidays. The fireplace and living room was very cozy and great for family meals. Thank you!
Our large family of nine stayed in Amy's house over Thanksgiving weekend and had a great stay. We had some chilly days during our stay but the heating was adequate in the whole house (there were space heaters in the upstairs bedrooms, but we didn't even turn them on). As can be expected with a house that is over 100 years of age, there is some small wear and tear, but we were extremely comfortable and found all that we needed. Amy was communicative, friendly and patient about the fact that I was in the midst of a road trip and not always exactly prompt about responding. The neighborhood couldn't be better with vintage shops, wine stores, great bakeries and restaurants and a fantastic grocery store just a quick drive away. Our kids especially enjoyed having the small backyard
Amy is an amazing host! She was very accomodating and responded quickly. Her home was in a great location in PDX. I hope I will get another opportunity to stay here.
Amy followed up every step of the way, great host and was available to answer any questions or concerned we had.
This was a wonderful home, comfortable and full of character and amenities. It's in a wonderful neighborhood, within walking distance to fabulous restaurants. Ample parking on the street. A great neighborhood to go running in . The house itself was charming, clean and full of local character. We all had comfortable beds and great bathrooms. The kitchen was charming and easy to use . The back yard was great with a large gas grill , a patch of mowed green, a fire pit and a hammock.
Amy was super attentive, answered my few questions promptly and was completely friendly and available. I highly recommend this to other folks looking to live the Portland life for a while and to other parents going to Reed for graduation week.
