A beautiful property with wonderful owners. It's location is just amazing with a gorgeous view!
We had a wonderful time exploring Portland and the surrounding area. We will definitely consider this property again in the future!
Outstanding property and hosts
We enjoyed out stay very much and look forward to returning. John and Betty are outstanding hosts and very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and places to visit. The apartment is perfectly located on the East End, across from Fort Allen Park and the Eastern Promenade. If you go, do take advantage of the excellent bikes and the Eastern Promenade paved bike and walking trail. There is a bike rack down at the CAT Ferry terminal which proved a very convenient alternative to walking for visits to Portland's Old Port district.
Absolutely Charming Apt (and hosts)
The apartment is even more charming than described. I read most all of the reviews prior to booking, and because they are so positive, I had high expectations. I'm happy to confirm that our stay at "Morning on the Atlantic" exceeded my expectations. This place will make you fall in love with Portland.
Great location, charming house
My husband and I recently stayed here for 3 nights. First of all, John is so nice to deal with. He met us outside at arrival. I immediately felt like we were friends. He helped with luggage and gave us a great summary of things nearby, then walked us upstairs and showed us around. The place is large and you will be comfortable here. It's very clean and obvious that John cares about his home and the people who rent from him. We parked our car and never moved it for 3 1/2 days. Ask him about his complimentary bikes and helmets. You will be able to ride everywhere you want to go. Save yourself the expense of renting bikes and stay here. He also provides free laundry room and had detergent for our use (again, another money savings to you) Portland was great, this was our first visit to the City. We also took John's bikes on the Casco Ferry to Peaks Island and spent 3 or 4 hours touring the island and relaxing. Don't miss this trip! The large bathroom here appeared to be newly remodeled. There is a huge glass walk in shower and he provides great toiletries. There were no negatives about staying here, but, to give an honest review, I have a few minor suggestions, Maybe, a window shade on the living room window (the one you see from the bedroom (we had to keep the bedroom door open at night to get the cold air from the living room A/C, and because of this, the morning sun woke us up earlier than we would have like on vacation. And the only other suggestion would be to have new bed pillows. Thanks John, if you'll have Aron and I, we'd love to return to your wonderful rental.
Thank you ,Texas Travelers, for your kind 5 star review.
We hope you enjoyed your stay in Camden & Bar Harbor as much as you did that in Portland.
On receiving your review we traveled to Freeport's Cuddledown and replaced the pillows, something which had been on our "to do" list. We were well aware of the bright early morning sun rising out of the Atlantic and into the bedroom but had overlooked the indirect light coming in from Morning Street on the south side. We have remedied that.
Thank you so much for your constructive comments. And do please come again.
Our best regards,
Betty & John
Morning on the Atlantic
You’ll fall in love with it immediately
I truly can’t say enough good things about this place and how amazing John and Betty are. John greeted us, helped us carry our bags and gave us a walk through of the apartment explaining everything. It’s a 3rd floor apartment with great views. The apartment itself is beautiful, clean, and the best place I could have found to stay in Portland. The location is perfect as well. Walking distance to everything. I can’t wait to come back for another visit some day.
The property was absolutely beautiful. It really was my home away from home.
I loved staying here and I’m kinda sad to go lol. I was here for 6 weeks during school and John and Betty did everything they could to make sure I was comfortable and happy. This was honestly the best place I’ve stayed at in all the times I’ve moved around the country for school.
