Fantastic apartment in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I loved our stay at Sue & Barry's apartment in Portland. The apartment exceeded our expectations and we loved the area so much that we extended our stay here. It's located in a great position, close to bars, restaurants, shops and all the great things that Portland has to offer. Hosts, Sue & Barry were very accommodating and extremely helpful. They provided fantastic recommendations for places to eat around town and assisted in planning some really great day trips around the area. The apartment itself was really well equipped and in great condition - it was the perfect 'home' to come back to after a day's exploring. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, which was one of the highlights of our trip to the US. We hope we can make it back again.

Perfect in so many ways!

  • 5 out of 5
If you're looking for a welcoming home base for your Portland adventure, this is it! My husband and I came to Portland for the food scene and were not disappointed! This apartment is beautifully decorated, clean and the perfect size with all of the amenities one could want. We parked our car in the off-street parking, left it there all week and walked everywhere. Congress Street, the main thoroughfare and Longfellow Square are a five minute walk from the apartment. Shopping and restaurants of the The Old Port are a fifteen minute walk away. The neighborhood is quiet and great for sleeping in on lazy mornings. The property owners live upstairs and are excellent hosts eager to offer directions, suggestions on where to eat and things to do. Next time we're in Portland, we know just where we'll be staying!

The accomodations were great.....

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time visiting Portland. The location was downtown and in walking distance to everything that we wanted to do. There is a great bike rental shop 2 blocks away. We rented both the 1 br and the studio for 3 nights. The décor, finishes, appliances and everything were all very tastefully done. We used the backyard patio for breakfast each morning. Sue and her husband were very nice and accommodating. I can't think of anything that I would suggest to make this place any better.

We loved staying here!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved staying here! Barry & Sue greeted us like long lost friends - and then they gave us the keys (and our space) for the rest of the weekend...though Sue was just a text away if we needed anything. The apartment was nicely decorated, totally clean and smack in the middle of everything Portland has to offer. We would definitely stay here again!

Great spot!

  • 5 out of 5
We had so much fun staying here! We stayed for 10 days with our 4 year old daughter. The home is well furnished and in a great part of town, with tons of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The owners are fantastic, and Sue even gave our daughter a kids CD she recorded years back, which my daughter now plays every day. Overall the place was fantastic!
