Wonderful stay at this amazing property!

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.

Awesome does not go far enough to describe this property

  • 5 of 5

Located in the heart of Portland, the condo has an amazing few of downtown and the waterfront. Step out on the street and you are in the heart of the action, but at the same time it is quiet and very secure. The condo is beautiful and very well equipped. Never have had a rental that supplied a full array of spices for cooking, plus many more unexpected amenities. Scott Lindsay is also pretty amazing! He went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. I was most impressed with his communication, if not immediate, he was in contact within 30 minutes. Thanks, Scott! We look forward to our next trip to Portland and will be happy to recommend you and your properties to others.

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely two bedroom two bath condo in a fantastic location. It was clean and well appointed and Scott was very responsive to any questions. An excellent alternative to a hotel for a stay in Portland and we will definitely be back.

Loved our visit to Portland and Scott's place. The location is perfect...walking distance to everything. Not knowing Portland I wasn't sure the location would be ideal, however it really could not be better. The condo was so comfortable for my husband and I. The bed and pillows made for a great night's sleep. We had breakfast at home everyday, but Starbucks and several other options are within a 60 second walk. Don't miss the bakery a block or so away. The best part was the view though. It was way better than the pictures shown. Scott was available if needed, although we did not have one issue our entire visit. You will not be disappointed.

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.
