About John Wuesthoff

John and Betty are former Peace Corps Volunteers. He is now a semi-retired attorney maintaining a professional home office in their home and she, a past director of Maine's Refugee Resettlement Program, is his part time secretary and bookkeeper when not caring for 2 grandchildren living across the bay in Falmouth, or attending their soccer games.

Periodically John travels to monitor elections being 'seconded' by the U. S. Dept. of State, to former Yugoslavia and the former Soviet Union. They are both active volunteers in an organization dedicated to the historic preservation and protection of the environmental integrity of the Eastern Promenade and long time welcomers of domestic and international visitors.

John Wuesthoff purchased this apartment in 1999

Why John Wuesthoff chose Portland

We have lived in Maine for several decades and are fortunate to have purchased this large, 3 unit post colonial home in the 1990's.

What makes this apartment unique

Within walking distance are good restaurants, both on and off 'the hill'. A 15 minute walk to the waterfront will take you past inviting coffee shops, a bakery, or two, wine and grocery shops, the ferry to the Casco Bay Islands, the Harbor Fish Market, Cabot Cheese shop and a barber shop. An evenings entertainment is often available at Good Theater with contemporary works, a 10 minute walk up Morning to Congress Street. Sea kayaking rentals are found near the East End Beach, a 10 minute walk.

Lovely place - great view

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment! Perfect size for us. So glad it has A/C units for the "heat wave" we got. Location is great. Amazing views. The walk to Commercial St. and the wharfs is downhill. John was such a nice gentleman. He had great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. We definitely want to come back!

Stop looking for a place in Portland. Book here.

  • 5 of 5

We spent memoial day weekend at John and Betty's and I can't put into words how much we loved it! John was MORE than accommodating as we arrived much later than we expected. He greeted us, helped us with our bags and gave us a quick overview of the area. The apartment was spacious, exactly as pictures and very clean. It was a little chilly weekend so we were able to use the adorable fireplace - so cozy! Location: excellent. Across the street is a walking path along the water that takes you to the heart of Portland. About a ten minute walk. We went to Peaks Island and were able to use the two bikes John has. They were very nice bikes! Portland is an incredibly walkable city with more food and drink options than you could imagine. In poor weather, our uber ride back was only $5. Overall, book this place. It was everything we had hoped for and was part of the many reasons we fell in love with Portland.

Perfectly located lovely apartment with charming New England character.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience with our stay in Portland. This property was lovely and in a perfect location for enjoying Portland. The owner greeted us upon arrival, assisted us with parking, bringing in our luggage, oriented us to the apartment, and shared information of local restaurants and activities. The apartment was charming, clean, and very well maintained. It had a beautiful view of Casco Bay and was within walking distance of many amenities and activities.

Warm Spring in Portland

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write a review because everyone else has said what I want to say. But I did want to commend John and Betty on their hospitality and attention to detail. First of all, the upstairs apartment was just as described. Although a small space, it is certainly one of the best equipped VRBO units I have stayed in (and there have been many). When we arrived, John gave us his thoughts about neighborhood restaurants that are within walking distance. We especially liked Blue Spoon and Lolitas. The ice lattes at Hilltop Coffee really hit the spot on the warm days. Speaking of warm days, we were in Portland for the warmest day on record for May. John contacted us early that morning and let us know that we would have air conditioning units installed before we returned from our daily outing. We really appreciated the extra effort to make our stay so enjoyable. On another note...one could stay in this area of town and not need a car. There are bus lines but we walked every where including to the Ferry Building, Museum, downtown restaurants and galleries, etc. Thanks again, John and Betty, for a wonderful getaway. Portland is a charming town.

Perfect all around

  • 5 of 5

This gem was clean, modern, warm, and in a great location in Portland's Munjoy Hill area. The host was helpful and friendly, but not intrusive. Lovely views from both bedroom and kitchen. Wood floors add to the warm feel of the apartment.

Wonderful getaway steps from the Old Port!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in the apartment. It is exactly as pictured - a delightful space steps from the Promenade and wonderful restaurants in Munjoy Hill. We were minutes from the Old Port on a very quiet street. John and Betty are welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. They gave us several great suggestions for food and activities and were always reachable with questions. It was a lovely romantic getaway and we'd definitely recommend it!
