Southeast Portland Retreat

Southeast Portland Retreat - Private Entrance - Walkable to Restaurants & Bars - Park 2 Blocks Away

1 BR
1 Bath
Sleeps 4


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).

PET FRIENDLY: **There is a $50 pet fee per pet with a maximum of 2 dogs. Please be aware failure to adhere to the house rules as it pertains to pets may result in cancellation of the booking with no refund. **

Convenience and amenities
3/5 stars
Location was perfect for us. We made use of shops and restaurants on Hawthorne. It was close to our son's home. Our unit was equipped with excellent bathroom facilities, tv, fireplace, kitchen, lighting. A few complaints: sleeper couch was uncomfortable and bedding insufficient. As it was a basement unit, it seemed a bit dank.

Great place to stay in central location
5/5 stars
Location is a cozy basement apartment in a quiet yet centrally located neighborhood. Was easy to walk / bike / ride-share to wherever I wanted to go in Portland. Was easy to use access to code to come / go as I please without disturbing anyone. Bed was comfy, towels were fluffy, and the location was quiet. Could not have asked for a better spot.

We needed a place to stay while our daughter was getting married. It was a perfect location between where the rehearsal dinner and wedding were to take place. It is a very cute place and perfect for what we needed.

Great stay in Southeast Portland!
4/5 stars
The facility was very nice and clean. It's a remodeled basement in an older Portland home. The upstairs tenants seemed nice. The only issue we had was that the TV would not work. I could get it to go on, but it would not stay on. That was not a big deal for us, as we were there to visit my daughter, her husband, and their new baby. I was told that this would be fixed soon.
- Mark D

Thank you for leaving a review. I know we spoke many times about the power being intermittent on the plug at the TV. Those are always the hardest to diagnose and understand but we are working on it. I hope you can stay with us again the in the future and I promise the TV will be perfect!

5/5 stars
This rental was perfect for our needs. Easy and safe street parking, well appointed space with a desk for working, small kitchenette which was fine for us as we mostly ate directly across the street at our friend's back yard where for our socially distance visit. Having a fold out couch and extra air bed were also great for our teens. Being basement level was a plus to keep cool during warm Portland weather. Highly recommend!

My time at the apartment was great. It was very clean and The bed was very comfortable and the shower was fantastic. I had asked for a place that was within walking distance to my daughter and that is what i got. The first nite there, there was a problem with the tv. I called Corey who then contacted the owner and within Two hours the owner came and tried to fix the problem . I also had to change my plans and Corey was very helpful. He was able to change my nights that I needed to stay without any problems All in all the apt was great and i appreciate all the help that Corey was able to give me . I will definitely use this company again.

Apartment was clean, a bit cold (December rental) but fine. Hated the coffee pot. Being the PNW, that was surprising. Between the cleaning fee and taxes, the daily rate is really not accurate. But that is a problem with the whole VR system.
- Peter

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!

2nd time we have stayed here, love it. We have a small dog and he loves it too:). Only had a microwave, so no serious cooking. However, for us, that is not an issue. The suite is well situated between 2 funky areas of Portland, Hawthorne & Division. It is super clean and comfortable. True. sometimes we heard the dogs upstairs, but again, no big deal as out dog could be heard sometimes too.

This cozy and modern stay in Portland will be my go to from now on. I met the owners, whom were wonderfully kind and willing to lend suggestions, help and care. The home is in a great area perfectly positioned in the Hawthorn, right between Hawthorn and Division. Division is booming with hip new restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques. While Hawthorn keeps the character of the neighborhood with unique and eclectic shops, thrift stores, and great restaurants. Walkability is A+ and the neighborhood is safe and quiet. Been to Portland a few times, if you want to feel like a local, and enjoy the neighborhoods, stay here!

SE Portland Rental
5/5 stars
We just spent 7 nights at this SE Portland Rental and were very pleased with the accommodations as well as its proximity to our son's home. It is always exciting when visiting Portland to see the changes and new eating place along Hawthorn Ave. We would definitely seek this out again for another stay.

Amazing stay, beautiful suite
5/5 stars
Absolutely loved our stay in this lovely updated suite. Located in the super cute Richmond area of Portland, walking distance to some nice cafe's and bar/lounges, and a short drive to Downtown and neighboring activities. The character homes were adorable! If I could move here, I would!

Great Location
4/5 stars
This basement unit was in a great location for us - close to our daughter and SIL and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants on Hawthorne. The unit was clean (although we did have to clean the coffee pot). We found the late check-in time of 4 PM to be a real hassle since we arrived early in the morning. Also, we could hear every footstep and conversation from above, and have decided to not stay in basement apartments going forward. The place was well layed-out with plenty of drawer and handing space. The bathroom was clean and roomy and the towels were of excellent quality. If you don't mind the noise from upstairs, and you want to be in this neighborhood, this would be a good choice.
- Anne

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!

5/5 stars
I really liked my stay in Portland. The accomodation exceeded my expectations! If there is one small reccomendation I can make, it would be to change the white light bulbs with yellow ones. The white light makes the room feel a little cold, while yellow light would make it feel much warmer. Apart from that small thing everything was perfect!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this basement apartment. For the most point it was well equipped and the location was great. Very walkable to good restaurants, bars and an amazing ice cream place (Salt and Straw). The property manager and owner were also very accommodating when we had to extend our stay at the last minute.
