We have a peaceful house less than a 10 minute drive from downtown Portland, the waterfront, and Forest Park. We also have a fantastic Farmer's Market on Sundays, and some great food carts and restarants just a 5 minute walk down the hill.

It is very quiet and foresty with excellent hiking trails nearby. We are a few blocks from several bus lines so you can get all over the Portland area. 

Our cat (Tilly) and dog (Emmylou) are very quiet and calm, but enjoy having people around to give them a bit of love.  They are very low mantinance. And, we just got two bunnies who don't really want a ton of attention, mostly just their daily lettuce.

“ Friendly animals, beautiful gardens and responsive homeowners ”

Staying with Rebekah and Jeannie's crew was lovely!  Communication and expectations were clear from the get-go and the homeowners were always responsive to any texts. Everything was clearly labeled and easy to find/execute.  Emmylou, Tilly and the bunnies provided good company and were a pleasure to take care of.  Their house is a surrounded by beautiful green spaces which made me feel like it was a mini oasis while also super close to bus lines into downtown Portland.  Thanks for the opportunity, would love to sit again!

I had a wonderful time taking care of Tilly and EmmyLou in Portland! The home owners were kind, upbeat, and very clear about their hopes and expectations for care of their beloved pets as well as the house. Hillsdale is a dear spot in Portland; it's own community not very far from downtown. I highly recommend sitting at UrbanGardenHome!

Emmy and Tilly were absolutely a delight to watch and get to know (dog and cat) they warmed up to me quickly and we had a delightful week. The back porch felt like a tree house and Emmy and I explored more and more of the winding neighborhood streets on our many daily walks. 
The owners are such a delight, I can only hope they call upon me again in the future! 
A perfect house sit!
