About Beverly Hunter

My husband Hal and I live in Virginia and visit our kids and grand kids in Maine. We have a condo in Portland to make it easy to come and visit and enjoy the wonderful vacation opportunities.

Beverly Hunter purchased this condo in 2007

Why Beverly Hunter chose Portland

We enjoy being right in the downtown Arts district, near so many art galleries, restaurants, music venues, lots of people and action. The view out our front window looking onto congress Street is fun, with the Maine Historical Society building across the street and the Time/Temperature Building just down the street across from Monument Square and the markets.

What makes this condo unique

It is fun to walk everywhere with so many scenic and enjoyable destinations. I love the sophistication of our building which was renovated by artists. The high ceilings make the place feel light and spacious.

Great Place!!!

  • out of 5
The place looks exactly how it looks like in the pics! Very neat and clean. We stayed for 2 nights and had a great time!!! Gina (Maybe the manager) was great showing us around. I would stay again if I visit Portland! And the best location you could possibly find. Everything walking distance.

Safe, Secure, Spacious, SPECTACULAR!

  • 5 out of 5
Upon arrival, the condo was immaculate! It's spacious with a GREAT fully equipped kitchen and living room, overlooking Congress Street. Festive, Fun, Mexican restaurant next door you can skip to, really hopping place with fantastic food and tasty Margaritas! The condo lends itself nicely to visitors who want to spend some leisure time where they hang their hats, in addition to just having a safe, roomey place to crash in the evenings. For cooking or entertaining lovers, this would be ideal! Get your game on with cutting boards, multiple utensils, plateware, modern appliances (except for cheap frying pans) and storage space for groceries, galore! The kitchen is small, lie a galley but plenty of space that opens up into a combined dining & living area, if you want to invite company in for dinner, there is ample room. The air conditioning works well, especially in steamy August but makes continuing loud noises, on and off 24/7. The beds leave a little to be desired, need new mattresses .Open ceiling plan from kitchen area into Master bedroom is a problem for light sleepers but otherwise, bedrooms are nice with ample closet space, adequately furnished and bathroom is roomy and includes tub with shower. Overall, the condo is SUPERB with ideal location! And walking distance to attractions and great restaurants/bars. Portlanders are very friendly people! I only know Bangor to compare it to and I would be very happy to return to Portland if this condo was available again.

Owner's Response: The pots and pans are high quality stainless steel. The new Queen bed and mattress cost well over $2,000. The new paint cost several thousand dollars.

Great location, attractive condo, well-equipped

  • out of 5
Enjoyed our visit very much. Great location, walked almost everywhere.
Took the trolley tour, then returned to the Portland Head Light (lighthouse) to take pictures & walk. Took the ferry to Peaks Island, walked all around, then enjoyed the end of season pig roast at the Inn. Also took the ferry to Diamond Cove for a great dinner.
Took a side trip to Bar Harbor (3 hour drive each way, but well worth it -stayed overnight at the Bar Harbor Regency Hotel, with an ocean view). Ate at Jordan Pond, then walked around it (3 miles). Also walked all over Cadillac Mountain.
Returned to Portland to walk the East Promenade, and visited numerous places along Commercial Dr., Congress St. and Exchange St. And enjoyed Whole Foods - the largest one we've ever been in.
Rented this condo for 8 nights. Great visit!

Lovely Condo

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time at this condo. Everything was exactly as described. There is an elevator, so that was a nice surprise since my husband recently injured his knee. Everything was very well organized and it was great to have lots of information at your fingertips about restaurants, things to do, maps, etc. The people in the building are very friendly as well. Thank you for having us!

As a family with two young children, convenience is key to a successful vacation and this place has it all. Walking distance to much of what Portland has to offer-restaurants, shops, the works! We will be looking to rent again next year.

wedding weekend perfection

  • out of 5
we just returned from our wedding weekend in portland, and could not have been happier to choose "the ball" for our home base. the apartment was immaculate, and had everything you would need for a weekend stay (or longer!). because we were busy getting our wedding day final details completed (and then the actual wedding day), we didn't spend much time in the apartment, but when we were there it was comfortable, well-appointed, beautifully decorated and everything we envisioned when we booked. the housekeeper/manager of apartment was very friendly and responsive when we arrived in town. the apartment is right on congress street, so we walked everywhere (no need to take the car out of the garage). delicious restaurants just steps away, and a 10 minute walk down to the old port. we couldn't have chosen a better place to be, and were so grateful for all the space had to offer. one thing to note: the "master bedroom" is more of an open concept bedroom - no door, and the walls don't meet the ceiling on the hallway and kitchen side. can get noisy if others are staying with you. wasn't a big problem for us, but is something to be aware of if booking with one or more couples/guests. the other bedroom is completely enclosed - with a door. overall we had the best stay in portland...and the best wedding to boot!
