About Colleen Bedard

I am a New Englander and have lived in the Portland area off and on for 25 years. I am now settled here and wouldn't live anywhere else but Munjoy Hill. It is truly special to hear fog horns, the train, and the tug boats hard at work in the harbor. The sounds and the smells leave a lastly impression. In addition to being a Realtor, I am also an artist and founded the Society for East End Arts with a few fellow-artists almost 10 years ago. I love walking on the Eastern Promenade with my dog, Coali, where there is an off-leash area for her to run and socialize with the other Hill dogs.

Colleen Bedard purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Colleen Bedard chose Portland

Downeast Magazine recently called this the hippest area of Portland for good reason. The neighborhood is friendly and Casco Bay--just 2 blocks away--is an every changing beauty. This is a quiet street yet you are close to restaurants, Rosemont Market, and Hilltop Coffee Shop. Downtown Portland is an easy walk from here.

What makes this apartment unique

I love 3rd floor units, and this one is no exception. The air and light is wonderful. The space is very comfortable.--You have everything you need here. The back deck is great for relaxing with a cool drink!

Charming, cozy home in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located near Eastern Promenade, which is a gem of Portland. Ample parking, great restaurants and markets just steps away.

The condo itself was cozy, very spacious, and had character to spare. Lovely hardwood floors, large kitchen, and comfy beds. Extra thanks to Colleen for providing a high chair and pack n play for our toddler- what a lifesaver!

A Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Colleen provided a very comfortable and stylish place for us to meet our daughters in Portland. Communication with Colleen prior to and during our stay was easy and efficient. The location was convenient for walking to both stores and restaurants as well as strolling along the shoreline path only a few blocks away. The kitchen had all we needed for preparing meals in and the beds were comfy and warm. I would highly recommend this space to anyone looking to visit Portland. Thanks Colleen!

We absolutely loved our stay! It was the perfect location - very easy to get in and out of downtown - parking was easy too! The apartment itself is very nice and comfortable - there were four of us and we felt very at home :)

Beautiful apt and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great area to vacation. Colleen was wonderful to talk with and really cared about making sure our stay was great. The apt is perfect, comfortable and situated in a convenient spot. Its close to the downtown area but not 'right' there. Great park, nice beach area all within walking distance. Places to eat and shops to shop :) Thanks for having us and we hope to be back!

Setting a high bar for a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

I had never used VRBO before, but now I'm sold. This Portland, Maine two-bedroom apartment was perfect for our family of three, and sets the bar very high. Working with Colleen was easy and a pleasure. The apartment was lovely and spotless, with contemporary furnishings and a calming feel. The natural light and breezes from three sides was a treat, the washer/dryer can make a full week easy, the hardwood floors add to the overall beauty of the space, and three window-unit air conditioners were welcome during the hottest part of the day. The location on Munjoy Hill can't be beat - just a five minute walk from the Eastern Promenade's glorious sunsets over the Atlantic, and walking distance from so many of Portland's cool spots. Stay away from the hotels that give no real sense of Portland's personality, and enjoy the history, restaurants, art and coastal highlight that makes Portland such a favorite small city. This neighborhood is perfect to explore on foot. I hope to return!

Lovely, comfortable, well thought-out

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Colleen, this was perfect! As soon as we pulled up we were greeted by a neighbor's cat, who appeared to be resting on the porch as if waiting for us to arrive. This apartment is a hidden gem, somehow quiet despite the many multi-family homes on the street, and was both cool and homey at the same time. Our kids liked the sofa and chairs in the living room and we enjoyed the set-up in the kitchen, with a table large enough to eat on and also play board games. The air conditioning made it very comfortable and was quite welcome after a hot day of walking round downtown or at the beach.

The location is great - it really was a short walk to a wonderful bakery (Rosemont Market) with fresh produce and organic and tasty foods, equally so to a small coffee shop (Hilltop) and corner store with fantastic sandwiches (Hilltop Superette). We frequently walked to downtown - it was about 20 minutes, alternating with walking on the promenade with views of the water, beautiful during the daytime and serene in the evening.

I truly can't say enough, the apartment and the area itself were wonderful and just what we needed. We hope to be back!
