Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed. Outstanding light and views. Location is perfect for exploring Portland. Don't expect much closet space if you are planning a longer stay.

Stunning view and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We are a newlywed couple visiting Portland for the first time and couldn't have picked a better place to stay! This penthouse suite overlooks the water and the city and is in the perfect location. We had no trouble finding great places to eat or things to do while we were there. The apartment is right in the middle of everything, plenty of shops, restaurants, even a dinosaur exhibit! We were genuinely spoiled and will certainly be staying here when visiting Portland again!

We were absolutely wowed as soon as we walked in the door. Everything was pristine and the views were breathtaking. Scott was super easy to communicate with and made our travel super easy. It was perfectly located and close to so many great restaurants and shopping. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an amazing stay in Portland.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for our first visit to Portland. Beautiful views and easy walks to restaurants, bars and shopping. The apartment is beautifully done with modern finishes and furnishings but old character as well with the exposed brick walls. Hope to stay again!

Wonderful stay at this amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

This is THE place to stay in while visiting Portland. The apartment itself is lovely, very well appointed, comfortable and fun to hang out in after full days of exploring Portland. It's within walking distance to everything - fabulous food, shopping, art galleries, museums and ferries that will enable you to explore the numerous islands offshore. We parked our car on a Friday and never touched it until Monday the day we left. The owner, Scott, is readily available

for any questions you may have. He made the rental transaction seamless with clear instructions and suggestions for parking, restaurants, things to do etc.. We will definitely rent this beautiful property again.

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.
