About Ann and Steve Kremer

Portland Furnished Apartments has been owned and operated by Steve and Ann Kremer since 2000, when fate intervened and the pair met. At that time, Ann was a travelling Occupational Therapist with many extended assignments. She lived in quite a few furnished apartments, some of which were nice and comfortable like a home should be, and some of which weren’t. They decided there was a need for quality, safe housing for professionals and tourists visiting Maine under similar circumstances.

Steve is a CPA with a busy tax and accounting practice in the Old Port section of Portland. They are fortunate to split their time between their island beach house on Long Island, Maine (a few miles from Portland in Casco Bay) and wintering in the Naples, Florida area.

Thanks to Steve and Ann’s hard work and customer service, Portland Furnished Apartments has flourished. PFA now serves clients throughout the corporate world as well as those who come to Portland simply to enjoy Maine’s climate and lifestyle.

Ann and Steve Kremer purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Ann and Steve Kremer chose Portland


What makes this apartment unique

Staying at 32 Congress gives you an urban fix without giving up the ocean breeze. Walk or bicycle to the Old Port allow the Eastern Promenade waterfront trail. (There is room for bicycle storage in the basement.)

Lovely and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, nicely furnished and comfortable. It had a lovely view of the bay from the porch and easy access to restaurants and the historical downtown area by car. There is a walking/biking path on the bay about a block from the apartment.

This was the perfect place to set off on day trips to many incredible places on the Southern/Mid coast of Maine. A wonderful restaurant, Lolita's, is about 3 blocks from the apartment. We ate there twice.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Portland. We were lucky enough to be able to rent this apartment. It's in a very nice location right across from the water and a great park area. The apartment was immaculate. It's very comfortable and has the charm of an old home. The kitchen is well stocked with anything you need - glasses, plates, cups, etc. Ann provides the little things that make your stay a little easier - bar soap, extra toilet paper, laundry detergent. It really shows her attention to detail. There is a good restaurant within walking distance from the apartment (2 blocks) - The Front Room. Recommend it. But if you are looking to venture out of the neighborhood, Ann has a great binder with all kinds of restaurant recommendations. Very helpful. The city is very walkable and has a young vibe. Thanks Ann for a great visit!!

We loved the location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed sitting on the porch and looking at the bay and the islands. Very convenient to go for walks and biking or heading down town for dinner. We would stay again.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property in Portland. It was our 1st time renting through VRBO and it was a very pleasant experience. The unit is large and in a great location. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch each morning with our coffee and then again in the evening with our wine, taking in the water view. A word of caution....don't forget your key when sitting out...we did and got locked out, but luckily for us our nice upstairs neighbors came along so we were able to get back in relatively soon! Ann, sorry we didn't get a chance to meet you, but maybe next time! We plan on returning and would recommend this rental to friends.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us and our 4 year old. A great playground was right across the street and the walk along the water into downtown was fabulous! The apartment was large and could easily fit 5 people comfortably. We would definitely stay her again the next time we are in Portland!

Very comfortable, spacious accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the proximity to the Eastern Promenade and 3 fabulous neighborhood restaurants. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and the owners attentive to our needs. We had a situation when we arrived with a car in the driveway that was a private driveway for our vehicle only. The owners were very accessible, and even though they were also on vacation, took care of it right away. We loved the short 1/2 block walk to the Promenade, enjoying the beautiful sunrises, walking the trails or just sitting with our coffee while dogs walked nearby. We walked to most of our destinations(some were a mile or two), whether it was early morning or at 10pm, and always felt safe. Had a wonderful time and recommend for anyone traveling to Portland.

Portland--Maine's largest city is considered small by national standards—its population is just 64,000—but its character, spirit, and appeal make it feel much larger. In fact, it is a cultural and economic center for a metropolitan area of 230,000 residents—almost one-quarter of Maine's entire population.
