Why Anne Kari chose Portland

Perfect for several couples plus a baby

  • 5 of 5

A group of us needed a place to stay for a family wedding. I wanted something quintessential Portland (big Victorian like, flowery yard, quirky). This was it! Big house. We had 3 couples, one single guy and a baby. There was still lots of room for everyone. We didn't even need the cool basement which would be perfect for kids, teens, another couple. The house had cool wood vintage touches with modern conveniences. Street parking was easy. Close to so many cool neighborhoods. You could walk or take cheap taxi to different areas (perfect for after the reception). The owner was available, responsive and made us feel very welcome.

Definitely would recommend this place for multiple couples, big families.

We really loved this place and are really glad we sought it out.

New Baby

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for a week in Portland, came up north to meet by Nephew's newborn. I love this house, location is great, short walk to coffee house, greek deli, fabric store etc. Found out it is one block over and one block down from the birthing/midwife center where the baby was born. House is well stocked, extra blankets, coffee pot, nice kitchen, quiet road.

What a fun time with kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house. There was plenty of room for two kids and three adults to stay. It was very convenient: super easy to take the bus in and out of downtown, on the east side of Portland so very easy to head out to Hood River, only a little over a mile to town if you want to walk and close to lots of great little cafes and restaurants. The kids had a marvelous time. They had their own playroom next to the kitchen, played hours of table tennis, and we were only a block from a marvelous school playground. The school even has a small indoor pool open for free swim an hour a day and lap swimming much of the day.

Home away from home!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Buckman House was perfect for us. We were in Portland to attend a conference and wanted to NOT stay at the hotel so we found this house. Very cute decor and it was easy to find everything we needed. Comfortable beds with nice linens. Great bathroom on the main floor with another new bathroom down in the basement.

GREAT restaurants within walking distance of the house. And we loved that others had left behind usable groceries - didn't even think of that!

Public transportation would have been fine, but we rented a car anyway. Driving around is easy enough if you use your Smartphone's GPS. Parking at the house was NEVER a problem.

The wi-fi was going to be a huge asset and although we all got on the wi-fi with the provided password, none of us could access the internet on our own devices. Very strange.

I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for staying with us, sorry about the wifi, it is usually very reliable, and I did trouble-shoot and got it working with my ipad after your text, but my neighbors said theirs from the same provider was also down intermittently during your stay. I leave the house stocked with a few staples and leftovers are often a bonus; so you'll often find a chilled six pack in the fridge.

Cozy SE Portland home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our three day weekend in Portland; the house was snug and warm despite the snow and sleet during that infamous weekend. Being within walking distance to See See Coffee & Motorcycles was a huge plus for me and the group. Easy street parking was a plus as well.
