Overview

About the property

Full kitchen, private deck, soaking tub, custom shower, lots of space.

2018 City of Portland Registration #2242

Leave your car in the complimentary lot across the street and walk everywhere.

Fall in love with Portland in your very own private, top-floor penthouse suite on Commercial Street with stunning views of the cityscape and harbor.

Watch the cruise ships your private deck while taking in the sunrise or sunset with a fresh cup of coffee or glass of bubbly from the 6th floor. You will not be disappointed.

This renovated 1850's former warehouse right next to the Custom House offers a mix of luxury + comfort, contemporary + old-world charm.

Walk 100 steps across the street and drape your legs over the marina dock while having your morning coffee and looking at the boats. It’s the perfect waterfront location for enjoying historic Portland, a tourist destination. It doesn’t get better than this.

Buy the freshest seafood in town right across the street. Cook for your family in the well-stocked contemporary kitchen with everything you might need for light breakfasts, take-in meals, and a relaxing night of home-cooked dinner and cable TV.

Favorite amenities and features include heated bathroom floors, exposed bricks throughout, Bosch stainless appliances, oversized leather sectional, TV’s in both bedrooms, plus an awesome sound system that includes a Harmon Kardon 3770 tuner/receiver in the living area to stream your devices, a pair of Paradigm free-standing speakers in the living area, and matching speakers in each bedroom ceiling.

Right out your door is the best of Portland: Casco Bay Lines to the islands - 2 minute walk, Starbucks - 60 second walk, the award-winning Standard Baking bakery + Fore Street Restaurant – 2 minutes away. The Famous Dimillos floating restaurant -across the street. The renowned donut shop The Holy Donut - a 2 minute walk. This might be the best-located vacation rental in all of Portland.

Looking for relaxation? We’ve got you covered, from the very comfortable beds with high quality white linens, to the deep soaking tub with floor-to-ceiling windows, to the luxury custom-tiled walk-in showers. It’s all in the details.

This is a very special place.

Whole Foods + Trader Joes are just a 5 minute car ride. Better yet, leave your car in the complimentary parking lot across the street and walk everywhere.

Great for a family vacation, tourists without car, age 55+, or a romantic getaway. An excellent alternative to a hotel stay.

For an unrivaled view better than any hotel, with privacy and security that is unmatched, choose the Margaret Suites from The Watch, your go-to destination when in Portland. If the Margaret Suite is booked, please check out our other listing, the Percival Suite @The Watch.

Thank you and I hope to hear from you.

Amazing views and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed this apartment. It was spotless when we arrived and everything seemed brand new. Scott obviously cares about the place and keeps it very well maintained and clean. It has a lot of character, is modern without being stark. The owners were very easy to deal with and the whole experience from initial booking to checking out was very low maintenance. We loved the place so much we skipped going out for meals and opted to stay in and cook instead. Which is saying a lot for a town with so many fabulous restaurants! Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Originally built in the early 1850's, this newly renovated property is located in the heart of the historic Old Port section of the Portland. This completely unique property is a prime location for a true Portland urban experience. Guests are literally steps away from Fishmongers and Butchers, coffee shops, fine dining, street carts, fresh fruit and produce, ferry rides to the islands in the bay, biking and walking trails, beaches, swimming, concerts, street festivals, truly unique retail shops, Bars to Brewery tours, Duck boat to trolley tours. The to do list is endless. Or you can choose to do nothing and retreat into the elevator to the sixth floor and observe all of this from one of the taller renovated warehouses on the street.
