Fantastic Home in the Heart of Portland
"This home was a perfect for us. Initially we chose this property because of the beautiful roof top deck and the grille. We had wonderful breakfasts on the deck as well as some nice evening dinners and cocktails, enjoying the night sky. We stayed the week of Labor Day, which turned out to be extremely warm, and it was perfect in the mornings and evenings. The beautiful plants and flowers make it a great place to relax.
The lay-out is nice, as it has 2 totally separate areas for sleeping; one bedroom, the larger of the two, is on the lower level, and the second bedroom is on the 3rd floor; both have their own bathrooms and a washer and dryer located on the lower level bedroom area. One of the most pleasant surprises to us is the incredible kitchen. Not only was it well stocked with almost anything you could need, it was a spacious area for a number of us to prepare a meal, or casually graze.
Within a 10 minute walk of most of the restaurants and tourist areas in Portland, we seldom drove, and we enjoyed walking to our destinations, and felt very safe in the neighborhood. Some of the things we like doing are: taking the ferry to Peaks Island and renting bikes; going to restaurants like Fore Street and Back Bay Grille; hanging out at the Portland Lobster Company; and for sightseeing the Portland Discovery Land & See Lighthouse Tour is great. The home is very clean and comfortable, and the homeowners were extremely helpful. The listing description and pictures are very accurate. We would definitely recommend renting this property, and will hopefully return again."

"The very best part of this apartment is it's location. It affords easy access to several great restaurants, funky cafes, delicatessens and coffee shops. Downtown Congress Street with it's museums, more restaurants, shops and weekly farmer's market is but a block away. Merrill and Cumberland County auditoriums as well as the Old Port are also reasonably walkable (although the walk home in very cold or very hot weather would take some effort as it is uphill all the way!). We also found the neighborhood easy to walk - many of these past fabulous old homes and gardens. The owner and neighbors were friendly and helpful. The sitting area of the apartment is quite small but the photos are accurate and complete, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and everything was in good working order and very clean. We spent two weeks in the summer, so found the washer and dryer in the apartment to be especially welcome. We would eagerly recommend this second floor apartment to anyone who is comfortable with stairs."

"I rented Tim's amazing home for my boyfriend's birthday to give us a little R&R after a very busy summer. I couldn't have chosen better!
The house is about 1.5 miles from "town" so was very quite and peaceful, but still convenient for going out to dinner, grabbing groceries, and getting to and from the ferry. We enjoyed the porch, dock, and living area for many hours of lounging and reading. The sunsets were particularly beautiful from the dock. The cottage was equipped with anything we needed to cook meals (which we did most of the time!) and a comfy bed very good nights rest.
Best of all, it only took us about 2.5 hours to get to the house from Boston, but you felt very far away from everyday life. I would recommend leaving your car in Portland (there are a couple $10 per day lots) and taking advantage for the taxi and bike that Tim so gratefully provides. Can't wait till out next visit!"

"Our family met here for a family get-together. There were 6 adults and 2 children. The house was spacious and very clean! We were able to have large family dinners with relatives from the area. The kitchen was well equipped! We had perfect weather the entire week we stayed at Liberty Builder Home. We had plenty of space to play in the front yard. It is a very short walk to the beach; which by the way is perfect for talking a stroll on or wading looking for shells and sea glass. Easy to get to many of the local attractions and you can visit 5 light houses in less than 20 minutes. Willard Square is a short walk from the house and a must visit is the bakery; loads of yummy treats, a great little ice cream shop as well. Our family would highly recommend this property, it was perfect!! The owner was so easy to deal with. Thanks for opening up your home!
exceptionally easy to deal with. We will definitely come back."
