Great owner and location
Owner was really great, helped us with our things and gave us tips and ideas. Unit is small, but nice and location was ideal for eating our way though Portland. Would definitely stay there again
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very clean rental. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and thoughtfully appointed, with the added bonus of views of Casco Bay. John provided helpful suggestions for things to do and places to eat, especially several good choices within walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet, and borders a wonderful park along the bay. Overall it was a great home base for our Portland explorations.
Relaxing getaway with the perfect location
We loved our stay here! The location was perfect for walking or biking into town. There were so many dining and shopping options nearby as well as the ferry to visit the many islands. We were comfortable and loved the quiet neighborhood. This was the perfect place to stay for our long weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary. We would love to stay here again if we are ever in the area.
Best stay in Portland
My wife and I have stayed in Portland several times over the years and have always been happy with our accommodations, usually hotels, but this place is hands down our favorite. John and his wife are very welcoming and a wealth of local information. The pictures online don't even do the rooms justice-the woodwork is beautiful, there are tasteful touches everywhere, it is bright and open-feeling with nice views of the bay from the dining area, bedroom and even the bathroom. The air conditioning worked well on the hot days. The bed is firm and comfortable. The Eastern Promenade neighborhood is great. There are interesting, high quality restaurants a few blocks down the street, a good coffee shop and good breakfast options. If you like to run or bike, the waterfront trails and quiet neighborhoods are perfect. Downtown is a short walk. Highly recommend, we'll be staying here again.
This apartment and Portland are amazing
John was very easy to work with, made wonderful suggestions for restaurants and things to do. This apartment is clean, clean, clean! It has a fantastic location for getting to Old Port, the beach, the piers, several neighborhood restaurants and getting into and out of town for day trips. We actually have a VRBO ourselves and this property is outstanding by all standards.
Very nice accommodations
John’s welcome to the area was fantastic. Thanks!
