The only place to stay!
Val is one in a million! Just mention what you want to do or see and she'll have literature and/or suggestions available for you! The unit is a converted attic and has everything you'll need: comfy bed, tons of kitchen accessories, cozy living and dining areas and an electric "fireplace" (that's the thing that looks like a second TV in one of the pics). Val greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a tour plus had whoopie pies (Maine's version of moon pies, if you're from the South) and wine ready to enjoy. It's very quiet and the scenery is wonderful. You will definitely enjoy your stay.
So very happy to have such wonderful guests!!! So glad they enjoyed their stay in Maine!
Very clean with considerate friendly hosts, close to many fun activities
My husband and I planned this trip to celebrate our anniversary. The hosts took this into consideration and left us special gifts. The apartment was equipped with a comfortable bed, full kitchen stocked with several staples, 2 smart TVs, WiFi, washer/dryer, fireplace all in an apartment above home on beautiful wooded lot with private drive. Hosts are friendly and responsive but give you privacy. We spent 5 nights in this rental and enjoyed many sights in the greater Portland area. The food in Portland is fantastic; we dined at Marguaritas, DeMillos and Becky’s Diner. Highly recommended!!
Happy Anniversary and best wishes to both of you for many more!
We had a great time and enjoyed The Garden Apartment!
Val greeted us as if we were longtime friends. She spent a lot of time showing us the apartment and telling us about the area. The apartment is clean, cozy and comfortable. It is located in a very nice and quiet area but just a short way from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is completely furnished and stocked with everything you could possibly need. The bed was very comfortable, the towels were extra fluffy, and the kitchen was well stocked. She had many spices, butter, coffee, creamer, etc ready and waiting. The fridge was stocked with items such as bottled water, a frozen pizza and a tray of delicious goodies. She made many great recommendations on places we needed to see and places we should eat and gave directions on how to get there. We enjoyed her sweet doggies who were always glad to see us. The Garden Apartment was a great experience.
We are so very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! Thank you for the great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to New England!
We loved our stay in Falmouth!
We loved our stay at this beautiful home. This is our first time booking on line. Val couldn't have been any nicer. She greeted us and gave us a tour of our apartment. It was so clean, had every amenity you would want, she had great coffee for us, beer, soda's, even wine. She also gave us each our own whoopie pies and a huge choc. chip cookie. We were more into exploring Maine but if we wanted to buy groceries and cook our own meals, she had everything necessary to do so. Not to mention we had a washer and dryer to do a load of clothes on our fifth day of traveling. The bed was comfy and we had 2 nice TV's with lots of stations to choose from. Her garden yard was beautiful and very inviting, I especially loved watching her dogs explore the back yard. She gave us some great suggestions of where to eat and what to see. On our next trip to Maine we will def. go back to Val and Jims Garden Apartment. Cynthia and Joe
We would love to have you both stay again at The Garden Apartment! Thanks for the great review!
Roomy and private retreat
This is a huge, clean,beautifully furnished get away which overlooks Val and Jim’s lovely yard and wooded area. It was nice to be able to fix coffee and breakfast before we went out each morning, and if we didn’t feel like eating dinner out, we had every thing we needed to fix a gourmet meal. There is a grocery store right up the street where you can get lobster cooked at a reasonable price and bring it home. There are numerous brochures in the apartment to help plan your day trips, but the best places were the ones Val and Jim told us about. They truly went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, leaving snacks and drinks, and good conversation if you want it, but they aren’t in your face every time you walk out the door. They have two gentle dogs who greeted us occasionally, and sat with us out in the yard one day when we came back early. They are good people and we look forward to staying with them again when we are in the area.
We would be delighted to have you both as our guests again sometime in the future! Thank you for the superb review!
Beautiful, Clean, and Quiet
Jim and Val are wonderful and accommodating. The kitchen was well stocked with nice welcoming surprise gifts (beer, wine, whoopie pies, giant cookie, sodas). Shampoo and soaps were provided, as were plenty of soft towels. Sheets were crisp and comfortable. The living room recliner was comfortable, and the soft shag rug felt amazing on bare feet. There were plenty of books to read, and the backyard has seating around a fire pit. The flowers and trees were beautiful and the lawn well taken care of. Has a nice office chair with a desk and was very convenient for remote work. Their dogs are very sweet and curious and want to meet everyone :)
Would highly recommend staying here, and plan to stay again in the future.
We would love to have you back at The Garden Apartment ... loved sharing our home with you! Thanks for the wonderful review!
The Garden Apartment at The Cape is a wonderful, quiet retreat from the maddening crowds of Downtown Portland. Nestled in the woods with great trails for biking, bird and animal watching - the turkey family crosses our yard frequently! The deer family like to sit out on our back lawn near the brook. Plenty of birds enjoy feeding at our bird feeders! You might even catch a moose walking the Brook behind our home, The Cape!
