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!

Amazing apartment in a great neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Colleen was the perfect host. The apartment was great. Everything we needed was there and everything worked perfectly throughout our stay. Any question got answered instantly by Colleen and she did the utmost to make our stay perfect.

The apartment is located in a great neighbourhood and close to the park and the water. Perfect for travelling as a couple and with kids. Highly recommended.

Comfortable home base

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely, nicely decorated, very clean and well maintained. We only cooked breakfasts during our stay, but the kitchen seemed to be well stocked with equipment. There is a Whole Foods that is a 5 minute drive away, and we were able to stock up on drinks, snacks, fruit and other items during our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the overall space very spacious and warm. There is street parking, but we typically did not find it right in front of the property, and usually had to park a block or two away. This wasn't a big deal, just slightly inconvenient the day we arrived when we had the most to unload. The neighborhood is very quiet and on the older side. We didn't see anyone walking around the neighborhood, so difficult to tell what the community is like. The promenade area is super close, with a sweeping view of Casco Bay, a park and a walking/running path. There were a lot of people out and about, and my husband was able to go jogging one morning. Colleen was easily accessible and responded quickly. It was a great home base for our stay in Portland.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, and you make a good point about unloading. My suggestion to future guests is to double park in front of the unit to unload and then move to a parking space. It's not a busy street, and double parking for a short time will make this easier for you on arrival and departure.

Much joy on Munjoy

  • 5 of 5

Great place, location and gracious host. Hip & funky neighborhood with plenty of views from the park of the bay. So much to do within a few miles. Especially enjoyed walking the waterside greenway in the morning to the Old Port to one of the many bakeries. Portland is a foodie and photographers dream!

Cool - Clean - Communication

  • 5 of 5

Cool place to stay both with location and character of the unit. Quite part of town within a block or two of a great park on the water.

Unit was clean, spacious, and worked well with our family of four.

Communication with Colleen was excellent from start to finish.

Perfect Portland Location

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and air conditioned , on Munjoy Hill. Nice back patio, comfy sofas and well- appointed kitchen is a perfect home base in Portland. The apartment is on the 3rd floor so there are lots of steps up. As someone very recently recuperating from a broken foot I would have had a really hard time if I was still on crutches . However, because it is on the 3rd floor it's very peaceful. An easy walk or Uber ride to all of Portland's amazing restaurants. Coffee shop, Rosemont Market, Lolita's , Front Room and Blue Spoon are just a few blocks away. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

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!
