If you feel like adventuring through Portland and want to base out of Southeast where you sit almost directly between Division and Hawthorne on 32nd, it is hard to find a better location than this one. You have a private entrance on the side of the house that leads down to a newly converted basement. It is clean, neat, and has some wonderful amenities. Every single thing in this retreat is brand new. It is a large spacious area divided between a sitting and living area and the bedroom area with a full bathroom and kitchenette. In the living area, the couch folds down into a bed. It is great for kids but depending on size may not be great for adults. The bed however is new and comfortable. There is a kitchenette with a microwave, sink, and refrigerator as well as a newly remodeled full bathroom.
A brand new high end self inflatable air mattress has been made available for guests. The allows up to four adults to sleep comfortably. It takes less than five minutes to inflate and deflate. There are linens available for the bed as well.
Some of the best restaurants in the region are a walk-able handful of blocks away. Wake up to one of the most incredible brunches around at Jam on Hawthorne. Get there and enjoy a mimosa while you wait.- There is always a line for good reason. Perhaps a lunch at Pok Pok, eating some of the best Thai food in Portland (make sure you try the chicken wings, not only are they famous but most will say they are the best they had)! Finish it off with dinner at Ava Gene's and enjoy and Italian dinner with farm fresh ingredients hand made pasta where everything is special. These are just a few of the dozens of incredible restaurants, bars, and stores up and down Division and Hawthorne. Whether you choose to walk, bike, or ride-share .. everything is accessible.
You are also minutes away from downtown, two hours to the Oregon Coast and ninety minutes to Mt. Hood. The amount of adventures to be had in the region is countless.
We do ask that you please remember this is a private basement apartment with the rest of the home above. The owners above live normal lives and you will likely hear footsteps from them, their dogs, and/or a distant muffled voice. Because of their dogs, if someone comes to the door or there is lots of noise outside you may hear a bark. Also for this reason that only a single small dog is permitted on the premises. No large dogs are allowed at all and only 1 max. In the event you do bring your small dog and decide to leave them in the basement apartment while you are out and about, we do require that they are put in a crate (we have had other dogs cause damage to the doors/furniture in the past and want to avoid this happening again).
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
Hello Peter, I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Portland and were happy with the cleanliness of the apartment. Yes, it can be quite cold here in December, but luckily with the heaters it can help heat the space up. Sorry, you did not like the coffee pot, it is a pretty standard one. I am not sure what you were expecting as you mentioned from the PNW, but we have never had anyone ever complain about the coffee pot before or that it wasn't fancy enough? Lastly, yes, just like hotels there are transient lodging taxes that get added to every booking, but that is the requirement of the city, state and county. We do have a cleaning fee to pay the cleaner, but other than that the fees are out of our control and are on every listing. Anyway, we hope you come back and visit again, Happy Holidays!
Anne, Thank you for staying with us! I am glad you found the unit clean, comfortable and in a great location. Sorry if the coffee pot was missed, we will make sure to double check that going forward! Yes, the owners do live upstairs and you can hear them walking around sometimes. We try and mention this in the description. It doesn't bother most people, but it can bother some. Thanks again for your positive feedback and recommending our place to others!
