Kathy's home is in a great location and was incredibly cute and cozy. My friends and I had a wonderful time staying there and had plenty of space for the four of us. Kathy met us on our second day stay and was very kind and welcoming. We would love to stay here again in the future and highly recommend it as a Portland abode.
Kathy left us a note welcoming us to the space. When we arrived, we met with her in person. She was very welcoming and responsive!
The living area was well equipped with maps and guides. The kitchen had essentials (hot plate, fridge, tea). We had five adults staying at the suite - it comfortably fit all of us. The rooms do all connect, which was fun for us!
We really enjoyed the neighbourhood. It was within walking distance of great restaurants and breweries. Thanks Kathy!
The apartment was very cute, clean, private and comfortable (especially the bed!!). It is a basement unit, and all rooms have private separate entries. I had a great stay with 2 of my friends. It's located in a very convenient and safe location, easy parking as well. Kathy was a wonderful host. My first night was a bit noisy from the neighbor upstairs but Kathy was able to fix it right away. Thank you for the great experience! I would come back again if I come back to Portland.
Place was nice and neighborhood was great!! Lots of good places in walking distance.
Kathy was awesome! She left us a welcome note, tea and a few essential amenities (water boiler, fridge, hot plate).
The living area was stocked with maps and info about the surrounding Portland area. We didn't dig too much into those, but for people without access to smartphones/laptops I figure those would be super useful.
The neighborhood is alright, and it's walking distance from a few choice eateries (pine state biscuits, juniors, lardo), a few dive bars & coffee shops, and just a few blocks further is access to public transit.
We had 7 adults stay at the apartment, but if everyone in your group is an adult, it's more more like a 6-person space (two big beds, a twin and a futon). Like a few of the other reviews said, it works for 7 people if 2 are children.
All in all, I would stay here again if I visited Portland, but maybe if my group was smaller.
My 4 friends and I stayed at Kathy's place for our first trip to Portland. The only encounter we had with our host Kathy was when we first got there and the morning that we left. They were brief but she was very nice! The house is so cute and we loved the look of it. Our entrance was to the side of the house and that led us downstairs to our floor. All three of our bedrooms were connected, which we all actually enjoyed a lot! The beds were super comfy and the shower and bathroom were nicely kept as well. You definitely hear a lot of noise coming from upstairs but that didn't really bother us because we knew we would be on the bottom floor upon booking this place. The place was well kept and we loved the location. We decided to rent a car once we got there because being the tourists we were, it was hard figuring out public transportation. Having a car helped us get around much easier and everything was fairly close by! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Portland! Thanks Kathy!
The Hawthorne hideaway was the perfect spot for my families trip to Portland! Kathy came down to greet us and kept the place very clean and cozy. We had a wonderful stay and my family enjoyed all of the fun things to do in the neighborhood! Thank you Kathy!
We had a great stay at Kathy's hideaway for New Years. Quite charming place with well thought out decor. The location is perfect. Near lots of shops, great food and beer, and also not too far to some of the more downtown locations.
There weren't any noise issues with us until the last night in which we heard some footsteps and TV from above. Nothing crazy, just thin ceilings and it stopped at midnight.
Would definitely recommend this place to a friend and would stay again.
Had a great time in Portland! It was great to stay at an actual house and not a hotel. It was my first time using AirBnB and I'd say it was a success. It was nice to come into a heated house and nice warm beds, perfect for my group of 6. Kathy is really accommodating! We were doing some work before we head out one morning and the internet went down. Kathy got it working in just a few minutes. She's great! Thanks for the awesome coffee and teas too!
The hosts were extremely welcoming, leaving everything from a welcome note, coffee beans, quick text responses to my questions, toys and books for my toddler to borrow, even a special treat on chrismas! The basement apartment was cute, cozy and warm, and has inspired me to redecorate. I loved the historic neighborhood, the shops and restaurants and a great school playground all within blocks. I highly reccommend the lovely Hawthrone Hideaway to anyone:)
What's more to want! It's in a convenient spot, the hosts are gracious and lovely, and space is big enough for a family, but still artful and inspiring.
We have ourselves a winner here ladies and gentlemen!
This is one of my favorite places in Portland to visit! It sits in a beautiful neighborhood, is surrounded by so many fun places to eat and explore, and downtown is easily accessible from the house.
Kathy and Vic are warm, generous, and fun--you will feel at home right away!
This is one of my favorite places to stay in Portland! The location is super convenient to walk downtown, or take the bus if time is a factor. It's easy to explore the Hawthorne District as well, and it is located on the edge of Ladds Addition, with some of the oldest and prettiest rose gardens in the city.
The hosts, Vic & Kathy, are gracious, kind and wise, offered great advice as I was trying to get to know the city and experiencing some of the great food Portland has to offer.
Three blocks to the nearest colony of food trucks!
This place is a nicely furnished full three bedroom apartment -- perfect place for a family with kids or a few friends to stay together. Great location, nice, comfortable place to stay.
Close to everything. There's even an awesome breakfast place right next door. Kathy and Vic are very sweet!
This is the best place that you could stay! Trustworthy and amazing people.
