About John Wuesthoff

John and Betty are former Peace Corps Volunteers. He is now a 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.

Great location !

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our trip. John and Betty were very accommodating. Beautiful location with access to everything Portland ! The 3rd floor location requires some climbing, but if you don't mind a little extra exercise you won't be disappointed.

Charming week near the bay....

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at this charming rental and really enjoyed our time there. I echo what everyone has said about the owners - nice people that are just a phone call away if you need anything. This rental has so many fun things within walking distance - great local restaurants, the park/Bay Area and downtown is just a walk away. Very quiet area of town and an apartment that was perfect for the two of us. John has bikes you can use and it was nice biking around as well. This was my first experience ever doing the HomeAway and I honestly couldnt have asked for a better experience. Definitely a must stay place!

Convenient to downtown Portland

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, quiet neighborhood. Safe for walking, even after dark. Less than a mile walk to downtown Portland. View of the waterfront from the dining area. Across the street from very nice waterfront park. John was very helpful with restaurant suggestions, etc.

A beautiful apartment on a quiet street on Munjoy Hill. Close to everything and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

John and Betty were very accommodating! Very gracious hosts. There was a fluke power outage on Munjoy Hill that lasted for a few hours and they were VERY responsive and communicative. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Great hosts, nice location, very nice place

  • 5 of 5

Nice old house located just off the point on a hill overlooking the bay. Walking path will take you to the Old Port district and downtown in about 20 minutes or a 5-minute drive. Convenient to ferry lines and restaurants as well. Hosts are very nice and helpful. Place is spotless, roomy and well-maintained. Only caveat would be it is up three flights of stairs so if you have difficulty climbing steps this might not be for you.
