About this listing
Cozy little bungalow in Portland's hottest neighborhood. Walk to dozens of great restaurants and shops or just hang out on the hammock in the backyard!
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.
Amy was great at communicating with me prior to my visit. The location is amazing and so close to many great local restaurants - just one block off of Division!
Amy is a wonderful host! We never met, but she was always easy to get in contact with if I had any questions. The house was amazing and absolutely perfect! There were 7 of us and never once did we feel cramped for space. The house was clean and well organized to find everything you need. The neighborhood couldn't have been more perfect. Safe and walking distance to wonderful restaurants and shops! Honestly, Amy's house made me fall in love with Portland even more. When I go back I will be staying here again!!
My friends and I had a great time in Portland, and a big of that was staying in this lovely home. Everything was as advertised -- it was comfortable, with plenty of room, and in walking distance of amazing food. We were able to enjoy the great weather by relaxing on the front porch and in the hammock in the backyard. I would definitely stay here again.
Amy, we had a great time. The neighborhood is fantastic and your house was perfect, a welcoming home away from home! Thank you!
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!
