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 is a classic cozy Portland bungalow. 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 (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 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.
This is one of the hottest neighborhoods in town. If you love food, you will love this area! Strolling up and down Division you will encounter countless restaurants, bars, shops, yoga studios, etc.
You're just a 15 minute stroll to Hawthorne where you can browse Powell's Books and catch a movie and the beautiful (recently upgraded digital sound and projection) Bagdad Theater and have dinner and a beer while watching a movie on the big screen.
There are a lot of really interesting places to see right around the house, so you will likely do a lot of walking in the neighborhood. Also, just across the street you can catch a bus that will take you right downtown in about 20 minutes!
Be respectful of the neighbors.
Keep the house tidy.
If you are bringing a dog, let me know and make sure you clean up after the pooch in the yard before you leave.
Enjoy the books, and keep them in good condition.
Enjoy the DVDs, and make sure they get back into their own cases.
No wet towels on the wooden bedposts or chairs.
Make sure the house is locked up when you leave and when you go to bed at night.
No additional overnight guests.
Small, casual social gatherings are fine; but, no loud & late parties. Our neighbors are amazing and flexible, so please be respectful of them.
No smoking inside. Clean up any evidence of smoking outside.
Love the house.
Love the neighborhood.
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.
From Oct 23 - 28, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Amy was absolutely great and very responsive. The house is completely lovely and very comfortable. The neighborhood is absolutely great with lots of options for food and drink and accessible to all kinds of great walks. This was my first visit to Portland that wasn't business meetings in hotel conference rooms and we would definitely stay here again.
We had a great experience at Amy's.
* She went the extra mile - she drove a half hour at 11pm to help us when we locked ourselves out
* Good communications and responsive before and during stay
* Provided welcome goodies including wine
* Centrally located - less than a building away from the good eats and drink of Division street
* Accomodated 4 adults, 2 children and a dog with room to spare
Thanks again, Amy, for hosting our crew!
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.
