Falmouth Garden Apartment
Our hosts were very kind and provided a lot of information on activities in the area, and also gave us plenty of privacy.
The stairs to the apartment were quite steep (for a lung transplant patient) so that was a surprise but our fault for not asking ahead of time.
The mattress was extra firm in the bedroom yet the pull out couch mattress was not that supportive.
The apartment was welcoming and very clean.
This place will be our first choice to rent when we are back in the Portland area.
Great place to stay
We enjoyed our stay very much. The bed was very comfortable and our hosts were wonderful.
Being first timers to VRBO we didn’t know what to expect, but after meetIng Val & Jim and their place our minds were at ease. Great place, price and a super nice couple. Couldn’t have asked for a better place. They know how to treat their guests.
Great place close to Portland
Val keeps a great place, and is always willing to help her guests about where to stay/visit in the greater Portland area.
Great value and location to Portland

Val and Jim were wonderful hosts! This home is located approximately 15 minutes outside of Portland… Easy access into the city… Roomy and well-maintained accommodations… Val gave us a brief introduction to the apartment when we arrived and showed us where everything that we needed was located… The apartment came with just about everything necessary for your stay… Best to check in first then go to the food store if anything additional is needed… Food store is approximately five minutes from the house.
We had three in the apartment but could easily have slept four. Beautifully maintained property as well… Lots of flowers… Very quiet… To well behaved and sweet dogs who love to give a quick hello. We were up very early each morning and came back late in the evening…so much to see and do! Easy to get to Portland, Freeport, Brunswick, and Boothbay… Boothbay was a suggestion of Val’s … We absolutely loved it!!! Adorable little harbor town…then we went up to seascape road nearby for another harbor and ocean view... Incredible area!
Also, try to get out to Peak Island!! The ferry is less than $10 per person… Approximately seven dollars… That is round-trip and Well worth it! They have a wonderful tour that is even better than renting a golf cart… It’s called peak island tours… You learn so much about the history of this unique island… Ask for John… He’s lived there since the 70s… Wonderful guy… Couldn’t say enough about him… It was supposed to be an hour tour… Ours probably was well over an hour… Lovely man with so much history and information about the island! Now a retired schoolteacher ...
Check out Groupon for any whale watching and boat rides and also for the Portland museum!
Don’t leave without trying Vena’s!!! … in Portland on Fore Street...Step inside this unique venue for a very different selection of cocktails! Delish!! And they have non-alcoholic drinks as well… Try the almond joy… Amazing! My husband loved the babushka… And I had a mai tai… Or try the millionaires wife… As I said very own unique and not to be overlooked during your time in Portland!
This rental was like a home away from home… Highly recommend it!
We loved our guests from away who took advantage of all of the sites and things to do in Southern Maine every day of their stay! Thank you so much for the wonderful review with more things to do and see!
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!
