About This Listing
This is an extremely comfortable and well located one bedroom apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking meals at home. There is WIFI, TV and electric heat. Guests are welcome to use the front deck, a great place to hang out on sunny days!
Extremely large one bedroom apartment in historic house, very centrally located in the Buckman neighborhood of SE Portland. This unit has a private staircase and entrance in the rear of house with access to a shady backyard. There are hardwood floors throughout the apartment, built in cabinets and antique fixtures. The bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and a nice closet with extra blankets and pillows to accommodate more guests. The living room futon is also queen sized and comfortable to sleep on. There are french doors that separate this room from the rest of the house so it can be used as a second bedroom when needed. There is a claw foot bath tub and shower in the bathroom and everything provided in the kitchen for cooking.
The apartment is set back from the street and stays quiet throughout the day. The space gets plenty of light and stays cool on hot days. There is electric heat for guests staying in the winter. We have television and wifi in the apartment.
We are located on the bus and street car line and are walking distance from downtown, convention center and plenty of desirable restaurants and shops. There is a great coffee shop directly across the street and a bar/diner that serves a both a conventional and vegan menu late into the night.
We are happy to accommodate special requests when possible. Please message me with any questions. Enjoy Portland!
There is no smoking in the apartment. You can smoke on the porch or front deck. Please do not bring any pets into the apartment, please do not allow any guests to bring their dogs over. Noise must be kept to a minimum after 10pm there are neighbors and other tenants that stay in the building. Check-out time is 11am sharp, you will be charged a $50 fee for late check-out. This is very important because we often have guests checking in the same day as those checking out.
Faith went above and beyond to accommodate us. Our plane arrived early and she allowed us to store our luggage so that we could start seeing the city. The apartment was as advertised and very clean. The location was perfect for us, allowing easy access to the downtown and within walking distance of some good bars. Would stay here again!
Faith was incredibly responsive and responded to an issue I had with noise from the downstairs neighbors. She provided excellent customer service. However, the noise and the thin walls kept me awake most nights so I would advise future guests to be aware that since this is an older home, every conversation and every footstep from down below can be heard
The apartment was cute and clean, Faith was available for questions when I had them.
There was no parking near the apartment. Had to keep the windows open because of the hot weather, neighbors were noisy.
The apartment is pretty basic, but clean and in the PERFECT area of town- very safe and walking distance to many places. The apartment is much bigger than shown in the pictures which was a nice surprise. Picking up and returning the keys was very easy. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking to explore the cool part of town in Portland!
Great stay! Clean and roomy, with all the accommodations you could want. Even better than the great space is the location. Anything you could want within walking distance - great food, bars and attractions. We are so happy we found this gem! Would definitely stay again.
Super charming, tons of space, great location and easy check in! Highly recommend!
My friends and I were looking for a place big enough for 3 after some shopping, close enough to enjoy downtown Portland. This place was perfect. The apartment is cute and quite well maintained, and it was great to have a full fridge, even though we weren't really there long enough to need it. There were handy Portland maps in the drawer with coupons and tourist attractions. The location was exactly where we wanted, and we enjoyed a sunny walk to the Screen Door the next morning (I highly recommend their breakfast!). Would definitely stay here again! (Note to those with mobility concerns, the suite is on the 2nd floor, and there is a relatively large staircase to get to the front door, so it may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns...)

About the Host, Faith
I am a Portland native and student at Portland State University. I enjoy local food, drinks and entertainment. I love Portland and exploring the new things the city has to offer.
I have been hosting with airbnb for over a year and enjoy introducing visitors to Portland. If you have any specific questions for me I'm always happy to make recommendations and explain the easiest and best ways to see the city.
I welcome all guests to contact me, my apartments are very family friendly and can easily accommodate independent travelers as well as couples. I look forward to seeing you in Portland!
