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.

- Great place from which to explore the Portland area. Very homey - far more comfortable and cost-effective than a hotel for a family or group in town for a wedding, graduation, etc. This is a quiet building. Not suitable for loud groups/parties, out of consideration for neighbors. Massage available (and facials) right next door at a very small neighborhood spa - Munjoyous....moreless

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...
