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.
This was probably one of the best AirBnb experiences my boyfriend and I have ever had.
The hosts were great at communicating information - how to get into the studio, which restaurants we should go to, etc.
This place was perfect for us because it was fairly close to downtown, has cool little establishments within walking distance, and was clean and organized.
Cara and Roger's cozy studio was absolutely perfect! It is close to a lot of restaurant and cute boutiques. The studio is very clean and well kept. It was everything we had hoped for and we would definitely stay there again.
This place was PERFECT! One of the best AirBnB experiences we've had. The place is exactly as pictured, in an excellent neighbourhood close to downtown, but in a calmer, more relaxed area. It was clean and very welcoming, with lots of information as well as a nice gift provided by the hosts. The hosts were awesome- respectful but very helpful. Would definitely recommend and stay again!
This place was fantastic! It has everything you could possibly need. Cara and Roger were very helpful with our early arrival and recommendations for places to eat. It's in a nice neighbourhood with shops and restaurants. We walked everywhere, but it's close to public transport. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely stay here again.
Cara's studio apartment was comfortable, spotless and very well appointed. We especially appreciated the crisp white sheets on the bed and the thick white towels in the bathroom. The location was great--we were happy to be close to downtown but not in the city center. All communications were prompt and thorough. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely airbnb!
I had a great time staying here. The hosts were excellent and the space was lovely.
Highly recommended! Well equipped and well maintained suite in a great neighbourhood. Clean and comfortable. Cara and Roger are friendly and accommodating. Short walk to good restaurants, Coalition brewery and the Yoga Space made this an ideal location.
Professional couple who enjoy urban life with 2 simple cats. New York is too fast, Seattle too crowded, Portland is just right. Hosting out-of-town friends (and now strangers) is pure pleasure in this great town!
