Please help yourself to tea, coffee, eggs and toast. :)

I've lived in Portland for twenty years and would be happy to provide you with ideas for dining and entertainment from yoga, movie houses, art galleries, to tango studios. I love traveling and have journeyed throughout Asia, Europe and South America. I do have a sweet, older cat who is super friendly, but will stay out of your room (unless you want her in). I look forward to welcoming travelers from near and far into my home!

Ashley's place is ideally located in the heart of central SE Portland. Since I was there to find a place to live, it was a great location for getting to all parts of the city quickly. Very comfortable room and I appreciated the Roku set-up so I could watch Netflix at night. I was out and about all day everyday, so it was a nice place to crash out in. Her cat Lucy is really sweet and Ashley is a really nice person. Great if you just need the basics and a cozy place to sleep.
Ashley was a wonderful hostess and the apartment was super cute. We also got along great with her cat, very sweet. We loved the location, couldn't have asked for anything better. The walk to both Belmont and Hawthorne were very easy and quick, as well as a walk to the bus lines to get around. We look forward to our next visit to Portland!
Lorrie and I had a wonderful time staying with Ashley this past weekend. The apartment is perfectly situated to explore the nearby Hawthorne and Belmont neighborhoods.
Ashley is a wonderful hostess. Tea and toast were available every morning. The room was plenty big enough for the two of us, very clean and comfortable.
We look forward to catching up with Ashley the next time we're in Portland!
Ashley was helpful and courteous, and the room and apartment were fantastic–clean, quiet and comfortable. Recommended. Thanks Ashley!
Great, lovely flat, really clean and easy location. Thank you
Cozy little apartment with a sweet & curious kitty, Lucy, who greets you coming and going. Ashley thoughtfully left a basket of information and chocolates and was welcoming and accommodating. The close-in location and proximity to the Belmont and Hawthorne neighborhoods is another plus. I will happily stay here again.
We had a great stay at Ashley's place. The location is very convenient - a pleasant walk to either Belmont or Hawthorne commercial districts. The room was pretty, clean and comfortable and we felt very much at home there and in the shared areas. Ashley is a delightful person. We would gladly stay here again!
Overall, this was a really comfortable, easy stay. Centrally located, in a really pretty neighborhood, and near some colorful, hip streets that have all the amenities. Ashley wasn't there but everything was in good order, communication was great, and I was happy to feed her extremely friendly cat! The 2nd floor apartment is small and homey, especially the guest room that I stayed in. I wasn't around all that much but when there, I entertained myself by streaming Hulu on my laptop. A caveat or two: on the 2nd night, the cat kept me awake from 3AM on, by scratching and meowing at the closed door at regular intervals til sunrise. She probably wouldn't do this if Ashley were home so maybe this wouldn't be a problem most of the time. Also, the living room doesn't have a couch (see photo) so I found the guest room more conducive to hanging out, but maybe that's just me. Otherwise, my stay was pleasant and Ashley is responsible, friendly and quite nice.
Sorry that Lucy kept you up…you're right, she wouldn't do that if I was there. It would have been fine if you had thrown her in my room and closed the door. :) You are right, I don't have a typical couch, but a futon on the floor with tons of pillows, a two other oversized chairs to sit in-hasn't been a problem, but to each it's own. Thank you! :)
Ashley is very personable and a great host. It was a great experience,
Ashley was a wonderful host and a great company! I had no trouble getting by with public transportation which was only blocks away from her retreat. And Lucy was such a friendly cat, she cuddles with you whenever you need love :)) I had a great time, def recommend!
