Welcome to the Heart of Hawthorne! We are 1/2 block from Hawthorne Blvd & 8 blocks from Division St in SE Portland. You’ll love our historic bungalow because it is comfortable, well appointed, & in the heart of a vibrant neighborhood with lots to explore! Our place is good for couples, singles, business trips, families, & dogs. Note: This room has 1 double bed & a shared bathroom. If you need room for more (up to 6), message me. No smoking on premises. There is occasionally a dog on premises.
This room has a lovely, solid wood, Victorian-style double bed with a medium-firm memory foam mattress. There is access to a shared bathroom with large tub and shower; the bathroom is shared with another Airbnb guest in a different bedroom -- listed on Airbnb as Heart of Hawthorne I. You can also use the common areas downstairs: living room with TV, dining room, kitchen, backyard, front porch, and front yard. There are two permanent residents upstairs -- Alejandra and Grant -- who are available to answer any questions or help you; please contact me via Airbnb or text when they are unavailable. Alejandra and Grant share the kitchen with you, and occasionally the dining room and living room. Contact me if you have more guests; we can accommodate up to 6.
You are renting one private bedroom (the beige room). You will share the downstairs bathroom with potentially 1 other Airbnb guest in other downstairs bedroom (listed on Airbnb as Heart of Hawthorne I).

Interaction with guests

For other questions when Alejandra and Grant are not there, please contact me, Natalie, through Airbnb's messaging system or via text message.
Other things to note
NO SMOKING ON PREMISES.
TAKE OFF SHOES INSIDE. It reduces wear on the very old, soft, fir wood floors and the rugs, some of which are quite old.
Dogs are allowed for an extra $15/nt.
Try to respect quiet hours from 10 pm to 6 am.
If you are a light sleeper, in the morning you may hear Alejandra and Grant getting ready for work. They do try to step lightly, though.
If you are allergic to dogs, let me know so I can see if there is a dog staying in the other room while you're here. If you are allergic to cats, you should be fine; there are no cats on the premises and haven't been any in at least eight years.
