About the Property

3 bedroom 1 bath on the East End of Portland, close to water & downtown

Sunny, homey, well-appointed, and comfortable second floor home in an east end neighborhood. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck in the morning sun or a glass of wine before going out in the evening. Very close to the Eastern Prom and East End Beach, and also to two local markets, three fantastic restaurants (Lolita’s, The Front Room, and The Blue Spoon), and the Hilltop Coffee House (all about a 4 minute walk). The Old Port and its many attractions - including what seems like millions of incredible restaurants, shops, and the ferry to the islands, is at the bottom of the hill – about a 15 minute walk from the house. We’ll provide some guidance as to restaurants if you like. The number and variety is overwhelming for some visitors. 10 beaches within thirty minute drive!

By car, everything is close - In five minutes you can be in the Old Port with it's world class restaurants and shops or on I-295 headed to Freeport. And if you're flying home at the end of your visit you can be at the airport and through security in about 35 minutes.


You will have this apartment all to yourself: 3 large, comfortable bedrooms (air conditioning in two of them) Sofabeds in living room and in one of the bedrooms; one bathroom with an original clawfoot tub (and shower); a bright living room; and a very large eat in kitchen very well equipped for those times you will dine in. This is a vintage apartment - restored, and updated. The entire building as well as the small yard area is nonsmoking, and of course guests should be as well.

You’ll have access to the driveway and plenty of on street parking, access to a washer and dryer located in the basement, WiFi, Cable TV, and Netflix. Easy walk to downtown and easy parking or take a taxi it's very inexpensive! Well stocked kitchen and apartment... 3 bedrooms, one full bath, fantastic and functional cooks eat-in kitchen.

Rates for summer 2016 (June through Sept) are $1600/week, or minimum of 6 nights (when less than a week is available) or as arranged with owner. Some rentals start on Fridays, some on Saturdays, and some on Sundays - so Inquire!

More about “the Hill” –

Munjoy Hill is directly connected to Portland's extensive walking/running/biking trail system, including a beautiful 5-mile oceanside loop. From Munjoy Hill you can walk or bike to the beach, numerous parks, and almost everywhere in Portland! The nearby Old Port is known for its cobblestone streets, small boutiques in beautifully refinished brick buildings, the docks where fishing boats still come back home after a day of fishing, and more restaurants per capita than any other city. Portland is considered a foodie's paradise.

The Downtown Arts District is home to galleries, theatre, the symphony, the Maine College of Art, and the renowned Portland Museum of Art. Each month, the First Friday Art Walk draws hundreds of culture-loving Portlanders. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, Portland hosts one of the top-rated Farmers' markets in the country.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: I have lived in this neighborhood for a long time, as you can see. It has changed greatly - and several times. When I moved here, Munjoy Hill was seen as a dangerous place (it wasn't) - Now it appears to be the most popular place to locate in Portland - no doubt due to the incredible waterfront we have up here, and easy access to points north by car, and Portland by foot (or car).

Why the Owner Chose East End, Portland, ME, USA:
This place is located in wonderful quiet neighborhood quite near the Eastern Prom waterfront. Take your coffee there in the morning, check out the food trucks that sometimes are out on the Prom, enjoy hanging out on the Prom with locals and visitors, and swim and kayak from East End Beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I have always loved the location of this house - just over the top of Munjoy Hill, headed for the water...
