Private Studio Apartment in Buckman

Apartment - Entire home/apt · SE Belmont St, Portland, OR 97214, United States

Make the heart of Southeast your home during your visit to Portland in this charming 1920's studio apartment. It's quiet, private, and cozy; a perfect home-base while exploring all that the neighborhood and city has to offer!

The Space

Stay here and experience the best of Portland in a vintage 1920's apartment. You will have the entire apartment to yourself. It's a large fully furnished studio apartment. The space is suitable one person or a couple and would be ideal for short-term or long-term stays.

Help yourself to the locally roasted Stumptown coffee and breakfast goodies: oatmeal, frozen waffles, and yogurt.

The space has fast, reliable WIFI so you can kick back and watch Netflix, work, whatever.

There is an indoor bike storage and locking area but I also don't mind if you keep a bike in the unit itself.

The bed is a queen size mattress. Fresh bedding is always provided for each new guest. There are four pillows (feather and synthetic), cotton sheets, and a down comforter.

There is a full kitchen with range, oven, and fridge along with everything you might need to cook - pot's, pans, dishes, etc...

Clean bath towels and hand towels are provided. There is ample toilet paper, and help yourself to the shampoo, conditioner, and soaps.

There is Scrabble, Yahtzee, and more... help yourself!

There is coin-operated laundry on site.

When you arrive, I will meet with you and give you your own set of keys and the space is yours for the time scheduled.

Guest Access

Everything. When you arrive I will give you keys and you will have the entire unit to yourself.

Interaction with Guests

I only see guests when meeting them for keys.

The Neighborhood

Centrally located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Portland. Downtown is just a short walk away. Or stay close-by and enjoy the chill neighborhood vibe and restaurants that Portland has become so famous for. Distillery Row and many brew-pubs are all within walking distance! There are only a few other places to stay in this zip-code which makes this unit a real gem!

Downtown is so close you can walk there in 20-25 minutes. Take a walk along the river-front, check out the lovely rose gardens in Ladd's Addition, or head just two blocks up to Colonel Summers Park and you might be treated to the sounds of Modest Mouse rehearsing nearby. Like most of Portland, the neighborhood has a reputation for being very safe... you never need to worry about walking places alone or at night or anything like that.

Getting around

You can take the #15 bus that stops just across the street. If you bring a car, there is also plenty of on-street non-metered parking. Car2Go member?.. we have Car2Go's here! Cabs can be called and on average arrive within ten minutes. If you bring a bike, there is a bike storage room in the building.

Other Things to Note

If there is anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable, please don't hesitate to ask. While I am out of your hair after you check in, I am only a phone call or text away should anything arise.. happy to help!

  • We had a great time at Trystan's place. The location is super convenient, check-in was smooth, and best of all, he was able to accept our last-minute booking. Thanks so much for a great stay! Highly recommended!

  • Trystan's space was perfect for our needs, so conveniently located to the event we were attending and within walking distance to great food and bars.
    Street parking as ample, even over a weekend stay, which also made coming and going to further distances no stress.
    We made several meals in as well as going out locally and having the kitchen really saved us time and money.
    Trystan was incredibly quick to respond throughout our stay, very professional as well as personable.
    Thanks so much!

    Tips for travelers:
    -If you plan on cooking, be sure to check kitchen inventory prior to your grocery run (we didn't do this and had to go back for a few things!)
    -Hair dryer was provided (I never expect this, so was pleasantly surprised)
    -Lightbar (1.5 blocks away) happy hour was awesome!

  • Really enjoyed my stay at Trystan's place. It was clean, well-kept, functional, and in a great area that's very accessible to what Portland has to offer. Trystan was very friendly and accommodating, and his place was everything he said it would be. I totally felt right at home. Thanks again!

  • Trystans place in Portland was great, on Beaumont street which we discovered was one of the best places to find bars & shops & food. The whole apartment is warm and well equipped and clean. He was a great host.

    March 2014
  • My stay in Portland was enjoyable and Trystan's accommodation was a factor in this. Everything was as described and clean upon arrival. Trystan maintained great communication with both my friend and myself as we coordinated our stay. The location itself was ideal for us. We did not have a car, but cab service was able to efficiently get us where we needed to be for low cost. Strongly recommend this location.

  • The apartment is nothing special but definitely serviceable. The location was great (super quick bus to downtown) with plenty of places within walking distance: Zell's Cafe, The Commons Brewery, Meat Cheese Bread, Beer, Voodoo Too, etc. For $86/night, you can't really find a better bang for your buck.

    February 2014
  • Trystan was readily available to answer any questions I had, great communication through text/email. The apartment was perfect for our needs, right on one of the main roads with plenty of free parking around the building. The space is big enough for two people and in a quiet building/area. I would stay here again.

    February 2014
  • Trystan was very accommodating and the place was perfect. I couldn't recommend his place enough.

    February 2014
  • Trystan was great. Very responsive yet unobtrusive.

    The apartment is simple but clean, comfortable and in a convenient neighborhood. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone!

  • Trystan's place is much smaller and darker than it looks in the photographs.

    The bed is next to the front door, with the sofa at the foot of the bed. Trystan's stuff is everywhere, leaving no space for us to put any of our own things. Trystan lives in this apartment and temporarily moves out when guests arrive.

    On a bright and sunny morning there was almost no natural light in the apartment. The power failed on our first morning and we lost time trying to get it fixed and had to get ready in the dark and with no power to use amenities.

    The apartment is not clean. The bathroom in particular was very dirty. We like to rent apartments when we travel so that we can cook, but we did not feel comfortable cooking in this kitchen because it was not clean, especially inside the fridge.

    We booked this place for four nights, but for all the above reasons we only stayed for two, shelling out extra money to move to a hotel. We emailed Trystan to tell him we were leaving, stating our concerns, and politely requested a refund for the two nights we didn't stay. He totally ignored the message and we never heard back from him. This suggests he is completely unconcerned about his guests and their comfort.

    This listing is inaccurate, misleading, and extremely poor value for what we got - at $147 a night this is way overpriced. We feel robbed.

    Response from Trystan:

    Hi Shane, I'm sorry you weren't happy with the unit. The title of my listing is "Studio Apartment."
    I will let future guests know about the power issue and tell them not to run the lights, heater, and the iron at the same time as that seemed to be the cause of the breaker tripping. There is a dedicated hanging clothing rack and hangers for guests in the closet which is usually suitable for two but perhaps I should purchase an additional dresser. My refund policy is prominently posted in my listing.
