About this listing
Buckman is a close in SE Portland neighborhood which is an increasingly popular place to live. The apartment is at the eastern end of the neighborhood. There are parks, a picturesque cemetery, good restaurants, wine bars, craft brewing pubs and the Laurelhurst movie theater, all within walking distance. The #15 bus line runs to downtown on the other side of the cemetery (6 blocks). A little further afield (just over a mile) is the Hawthorne district where there are some off beat shops and more places to eat and drink. Downtown is 2 miles away.
The apartment is part of a new build and is situated at the rear of the property next to the garden It is one story up (over the garage) and receives a lot of natural light. It is fully self-contained, all appliances are new which makes self-catering very easy. What it lacks in history it more than makes up for in convenience!
Buckman is pretty close to downtown while still having a residential flavor. It also contains a number of agreeable restaurants, wine bars and brewpubs.
Everyday shopping needs such as grocery stores are also well served. Additionally it is pretty easy to get to the major freeways for travel purposes.
Buses run to downtown and back a few blocks over.
I really liked Cara and Roger's studio. It was quiet, clean, and pleasantly set up and decorated with lots of amenities - hair dryer, iron, blender, toaster, new washer and dryer, coffee, wine, packets of peanut butter, a first aid kit, air conditioner, shampoo, soap....and every possible book about things to do in Portland. They were quick to answer messages and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay! The apartment was immaculate and had all the comforts of home. Cara and Roger were super accommodating, responsive and helped make for a great experience visiting a new city. We would definitely stay there again and totally understand how they've earned the Super Host badge!
The pictures posted were accurate when I arrived with my fiancé. Our experience was wonderful! The unit was very clean and cozy. We appreciated the extra accommodations-wine, maps and places to visit in the city. The neighborhood was a great location as well.
Absolutely wonderful. We wish we were staying a few more days just because the apartment was so great!
I had a great stay. The space was exactly as advertised. Very clean and comfortable. Hosts provided some nice extras and great info about the area. I would definitely stay there again.
This was the best airbnb experience me & my husband have ever had! Cara & Roger were great hosts & made us feel welcome right away with a bottle of wine/coffee/helpful guide books. The apartment was so cute & super clean! It has everything you need, including a washer/dryer. And its close to great restaurants/bars. I would highly recommend staying here if you visit Portland.
We never met in person, but Cara and her husband left a bottle of wine and a thorough guide to Portland for us in the tidy studio. The place was just as described, and a nice private getaway.
