Overview

About the property

Gorgeous Contemporary Suite with Full Kitchen across from Waterfront. Parking.

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 from your very own cupola while taking in the sunrise or sunset with a fresh cup of coffee or glass of bubbly from the 7th floor. You will not be disappointed.

This renovated 1850's former warehouse located 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. The popular Casco Bay Ferry to the islands is also within view and a brief walk away. It’s the perfect location to walk around Portland. It doesn’t get better than this.

Buy the freshest seafood in town right across the street, fresh off the boats. Cook for your family in your 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, 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: Starbucks - 60 second walk, the award-winning Standard Baking bakery + Fore Street Restaurant – 2 mins. 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 complementary 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 Percival Suites from The Watch, your go-to destination when in Portland. If the Percival is booked, please check out our other listing, the Margaret Suite @The Watch.

Thank you and we hope to hear from you.

Beautiful property, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The views out the glass window/ceiling are spectacular. The place is very well built and furnished. The location is terrific for walking around and enjoying Portland. The owner is very friendly and attentive, checking in by email (though we didn't have any problems). This is a great setup for a weekend in Portland. Excellent place!

Beautiful property, great location, sleek design

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in Portland Maine. The property is right in the heart of old Portland with beautiful views of downtown and the harbor. The apartment is a beautiful blend of old and new, with brick walls and high end finishes, chic bathrooms, and a great lookout tower for cocktails. Check in and out were a breeze.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just beautiful! Very clean and well equipped. My daughter and I just loved soaking in the deep tub, so relaxing! The location was perfect, centrally located to shops and restaurants. Communications with Scott were very pleasant and easy. This penthouse will be our "go to place" whenever we visit Portland. Thank you Scott.

Perfectly situated with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time returning to this lovely apt. The views are spectacular and everything is bright and well maintained. The location is perfect for exploration of Portland. Once we arrived, we never got back in our car. Everything we wanted to do-dining, shopping, yoga was within walking distance.

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!

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 but retreat via the elevator to your sixth floor penthouse and observe all of this from one of the taller renovated warehouses on the street.
