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.
Cara has been an excellent host. Super communicative with us and the place was spotless clean. We were nicely greeted with complimentary wine at our arrival and several books/magazines about Portland, which we found very useful. Every little detail was taken care of and we will undoubtedly consider this place again next time we return to portland!
The studio couldn't have been more charming and a perfect place to stay. You can tell Cara and Roger put a lot of thought into making our stay as nice as possible.
The Cozy Portland Suite is the cutest garage apartment in the perfect place in town. Bed is comfortable, apartment is spacious with lots of windows to let fresh air in, having the kitchen & washer and dryer is great and the hosts made it so easy to navigate the apartment, city & help with the details to make our stay more than comfortable. I especially appreciated the organic & sustainable choices they made with the toiletries and condiments they provided us. Such an unexpected surprise. Thank you for providing such the perfect place for us to stay in Portland!
Fantastic stay in Southeast Portland! Cara and Roger provided everything we needed and more, including local goodies and recommendations for places near the studio apartment! A truly wonderful experience with great hosts.
This place was great! They made us feel welcome, and it's very comfortable and spacious. The neighborhood was perfect. We could walk a few blocks to a strip with tons of restaurants, coffee and boutiques. Whole foods real close too. I definitely recommend this place. You can walk downtown, but it is about a 2 mile walk. The Saturday art market under the Burnside bridge is a must! Highly recommend!
Everything was perfect! Mark greeted is when we arrived early and helped us with our bags. The studio was in a great location and the place was immaculate. We appreciated the proseco upon our arrival and coffee with cream for the morning made my day! It's perfect for a Portland getaway.
Lovely apartment in a great neighborhood. The apartment itself was very comfortable. We appreciated the laundry facilities. The furniture and supplies were all new. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had all of the amenities we needed. Overall, a great place to stay in Portland and a very friendly host.
