This is a great condo in the heart of Southeast Portland and just blocks from the trendy Hawthorne Neighborhood featuring many great restaurants, shops, pubs, and activities. All furnishings and linens new in November 2011! There is a deck with bbq, and plenty of space to hang out when weather permits. In the family room is a 40’’ flat screen TV and Blu-Ray DVD Player. Also included is free Wifi! Just blocks to downtown, right near the bus line, and a great overall walking score of 86! The Hawthorne area is a great neighborhood to have as “home base” while in Portland because it has all the food, shops, and excitement necessary but is in close proximity to all of the other neat areas in town. As the owner I take great pride in having happy guests and am glad to do anything I can to make your stay more enjoyable. Please do not hesitate to ask.
NOT HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE
This was my first VRBO and I know I had to have made things difficult for the owner (I asked a lot of questions). He was relatively quick to respond and made things easy.
This was for a reunion among friends and unfortunately, I wasn't able to go due to a work conflict (even though I'm the one he had been talking to/booked the property).
My friends, however, absolutely loved it. It was walking distance to many of the bars/pubs and ubers/lyfts were very easy to get a hold of. We are all from the the Portland area so it wasn't too hard to find.
I would definitely recommend this property (or any by the owners).
This was my first trip into the VRBO realm. As the apartment we had originally inquired about was booked, Thomas suggested that we would might be interested in this one. I'm so glad we were able to get this one. We arrived earlier than expected and Thomas was very accommodating in letting us get into the apartment early. The entry code we were given was incorrect, but Thomas got everything figured out very quickly. Once inside, we were very pleasantly surprised to find it nicer than expected. It was very clean, tastefully appointed and the kitchen was very well stocked with everything but the food. There was also a washer and dryer, which was very nice to have on hand. We did not rent a car and relied on mostly walking and a little bit of public transportation which turned out to be just fine. The apartment is located in the Hawthorne area on a quiet street close to food trucks which our teens and twenty-somethings took advantage of late at night. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone going to Portland. Thank you, Thomas!
I'm so glad I booked Thomas's place for my group of friends! The Hawthorne area was very nice with quirky shops to explore and a permanent food truck area a couple minutes walk from the apartment. The two beds slept 4, and the air mattress fit the additional two comfortably. Thomas was a great host with providing all the details needed for our stay and let us know well in advance that a handyman was to drop by to fix the washing machine during our stay. I was initially a little hesitant that Thomas does not do his booking through VRBO, but it ended up saving us money on fees, and everything was legitimate and professional. Would definitely recommend!
This was the perfect place to land - right in the middle of so many great restaurants and close to downtown. On top of that it was clean, quiet and comfortable. Very well set up, I wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you, Thomas.
My wife and I stayed in this home in late July for five days. We had been traveling through British Colombia with our kids and then just the both of us stayed in Portland to scout areas for a possible relocation. The clean, comfortable home is in the Hawthorne area of Portland. It is quite close to Downtown and the public transportation in this city is excellent. There are bus stops on Hawthorne just one block from the home. We had a car and had no problems with parking. The home had all we needed to prepare solid meals and enjoy them on the deck. It is a safe, clean home and there is plenty of room. We were able to do laundry, which was great on account of the amount of traveling we had been doing. The owner was able to accommodate us and allow us to be in the home prior to the 4 p.m. check in. Thanks! We had to get up at 3:30 that morning to catch and early flight out of Canada. Surrounding this home there are many interesting shoppes, restaurants, pubs, and distilleries. Portland is a walkers and bikers dream. We hope to stay at this home again in the near future. Thanks to Thomas for everything.
