Great location! Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here while we were visiting Portland. The apartment was an easy walk to quite a few restaurants and about a mile to Old Port shopping and restaurants as well. The apartment had A/C which helped cool things off during warm July evenings. Owners Sue and Barry were friendly, accommodating and gave lots of suggestions for dining and touring. We would definitely stay here again!

What a fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I could not have been happier that we found this apartment for our stay in Portland! Sue and Barry were wonderful hosts spending time to acquaint us with all the great places to experience in the Old Port neighborhood. It is a spacious one bedroom apartment with a fully stocked kitchen. Sue thought of all the amenities. Plus we were only a short walking distance away from the Old Port harbor where many of the fine restaurants are located. Why anyone would pay a comparable price or even higher to stay in a hotel room when you can have this gem of a place to stay does not understand real value! Thank you Sue and Barry for making our first visit to Portland truly comfortable.

Great apartment for small group stay

  • 5 of 5

Chic is the best way to describe this apartment. My husband and I along with our two teenage daughters stayed comfortably here while we visited the Portland area. The rooms were comfortable and clean and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back! The location is great and you can easily access the city and the harbor nearby.

Cute apartment in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week following Memorial Day, and had a great time. The apartment was cute and cozy, and in a great neighborhood, just a block from bars and restaurants on Congress St but quiet in the evenings. Portland, as always, was a ton of fun! Sue and Barry were fantastic hosts and gave us great recommendations for stuff to do and places to try out. We'll be back!
