Hip Neighborhood, Adorable Bungalow

House - Entire home/apt · SE 37th Ave, Portland, OR 97202, United States

The Space

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 1 queen, 1 full, 2 twin. Additional people can be accommodated by the futon in the upstairs reading room, a comfortable queen size air mattress and/or the couch in the main living room.)

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!

  • This home was perfect for our family of 4 during a week in Portland. We enjoyed several of the restaurants within a few blocks of the house. The neighborhood was fun to explore and was only a short walk to other neighborhoods, like the Hawthorne district. The house is beautiful and funky and had everything we would possibly need plus more. Beds were very comfortable and house was quiet and safe. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Amy's place was fantastic! Perfect location, perfect size and amazing hospitality! Would go through Amy again with no hesitation!

  • As others have said there are many charming features about this home but be aware that curb appeal and the upstairs bedroom and bathroom are not among them. We enjoyed the downstairs living-dining area with it's many artistic touches and comfy furniture but were shocked that when it rained the upstairs bathroom skylight had a major leak. There was also mold upstairs and evidence of old water damage. The front stairs were sagging at a dangerous angle and the screen door was ripped in 3 places. Before renting, you might want to check with host to see if repairs have been made both inside and out that can turn this home into a charming rental.

  • The house was great, and in an awesome location, just as Amy says in the description...there were even some beers waiting for us in the fridge. If you have a larger group that's visiting Portland, this is the place to stay.

  • Amy's home served as a gathering place for our family for eight days during a family wedding in Portland. Amy was a great host and was very prompt and helpful when we contacted her. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. This is not a fancy home, and it does show it's age a bit, but it is roomy and comfortable, and very reasonably priced. There is a nice yard, with decks and patio furniture but unfortunately the weather was not warm enough for us to enjoy these amenities.
    We would recommend this accommodation, especially for a family, and we would certainly stay here again.

  • Amy was fantastic to work with- very quick to answer every question I had. The house was in the most PERFECT location... steps away from the most delicious restaurants and bars. I stayed during a snowstorm and the house was cozy and comfortable, warm and welcoming. Amy left the house stocked with everything you may need! I will definitely be coming back to stay and I highly recommend staying in Amy's home to anyone.

  • The house is in a great location - within walking distance to many great places on Division Street. We only used the downstairs part of the house really and the upstairs bathroom. It was quite cold upstairs and I think it would really be too cold to sleep up there. There was some leaking noticed in the bathroom (it rained quite heavily one evening) and also in the bedroom we didn't use upstairs. Downstairs was warm and the bedrooms very comfortable. We did let Amy know about the leaking and even though it didn't' affect our stay, she was responsive. We would enjoy staying there again, maybe when it's warmer. A small heater would be helpful too… there was one upstairs that was not super powerful that we used for warming up the kitchen

  • Four of us stayed in this roomy, comfortable, two story home over a long holiday weekend. We were able to cook for and entertain family using the clean, homey kitchen and dining room. The dining and living spaces are one big room making hanging out together possible.
    We enjoyed the neighborhood full of small shops, especially the new pie bakery Lauretta Jean's at 34th & Division.
    We hope to return to this rental for another holiday.
    Thanks, Amy, for sharing your charming home.

  • Had everything we could have wanted and a great DVD selection and super comfy couch and Moroccan cushions to sit on. Easy to get to and a short cab ride from downtown.

  • Best house ever! A group of 10 of us rented Amy's house for a long weekend and couldn't have asked for a more comfortable spot. With three designated bedrooms, and plenty of other spaces to sleep we didn't feel the least bit crowded. The two full bathrooms were also a treat. Amy has a seriously impressive book collection if you feel like spending some time curled up on the porch reading. But, if DVDs or Wii is more your cup of tea, she's got that too. The kitchen included a 6 burner gas stove and dishwasher, and there was a nice sized backyard with a BBQ and firepit that we would have used in a second, had the rain let up.

    The house is in a fantastic location, right around the corner from SE Division which has loads of tasty food options (of which we sampled many) and neat vintage stores. About a 5-10 minute walk away is Hawthorne with even more food, vintage and great shopping. There's also a bus stop about 2 minutes away that will get you downtown in about 15 minutes so you can immerse yourself in food cart heaven.

    Our group had a lot of activities planned already, but Amy left a really thorough guide of the neighbourhood, and Portland in general, in case we were at a loss for things to do.

    I hope to be able to go back to Portland for a longer stay in the future, and would without a doubt book Amy's house again!
