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.
