About Laurie and Matt
Matt grew up in Portland, and after traveling and exploring, we are very happy to be home again in Portland.
Laurie and Matt purchased this House in 1999
Why Laurie and Matt chose Buckman Neighborhood
This is a great spot to live, and to appreciate the best of what Portland has to offer. Once we are home at the end of the work day we can ditch our cars and walk to everything we need, great grocery shopping, seasonal farmers markets, parks, restaurants, bakeries and dessert spots, bars, and nightlife. There is more to do in our neighborhood than we have time to enjoy.
What makes this House unique
What makes inner Portland so walkable to amenities is the density. Most homes are tightly grouped with small yards. We have the luxury of large yard, anchored by a giant Deadora Cedar, allowing a place to enjoy the outside just out the back door.

House on S.E. 28th ave.
The house worked well enough for our purposes and owners were responsive and helpful. Main drawback was only one convenient bathroom for three bedrooms. Also one room needs a more comfortable mattress.
Quiet, nice, great location!
We enjoyed our stay at the Buckman Neighborhood. It was quiet, spacious, well decorated and in a great location. The beds were very comfortable and the private parking spot was nice to use. Laurie was such a friendly and welcoming host. We had a great time!
Great home, great location
Laurie’s property is as described in the pictures plus a modern bathroom w shower downstairs. Everything is well thought out: blow dryer, laundry detergent, shampoo, etc. kitchen is fully equipped relative to pots and pans, dishes, culinary gadgets. You do need to bring coffee, spices, etc. which is to be expected. We had a great time using public transportation to go to the Rose Garden and other downtown attractions. The bus was very simple and close. The food trucks are about 3 blocks away and became a routine for dinner. Lots of yummy choices. You are able to park in the driveway so no hunting for a parking space despite the downtown location. Used the rental car to go to the coast and hike Multnomah Falls (both are must-do’s) for those who like outdoor activities. Laurie’s home is spotless. Highly recommend!
Comfortable base for extended stay
We found this property for our two-week stay in Portland. We have three young children and wanted room for them to play inside and outside. This house met all of our needs. Everything is comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the location is quiet but accessible. It is an older house--reminded me of my grandma's house in happy ways--so it wasn't luxurious. Matt and Laurie answered our questions and checked on us through the app but otherwise left us to our own devices. We appreciated that there are two grocery stores less than a mile away, and lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The biggest attractions in Portland are 10-15 minute drive, so this house was very convenient for all of our sightseeing. I also appreciated having a driveway instead of trying to find street parking. One thing potential visitors should know is that there is a very nice bathroom in the otherwise unfinished basement. If you have mobility issues, that bathroom isn't accessible. Our family mostly just shared the bathroom on the main floor because our kids didn't like going into the basement alone. Overall, happy with our stay here and we would stay here again if traveling with our children.
Awesome location. Home Away From Home
This home was very comfortable, laid out well, with thoughtful attention to details that mede the stay enjoyable. Central location easy to walk to good local restaurants at all price levels. Shopping, parks, and downtown all close by.
