I am a New Englander and have lived in the Portland area off and on for 25 years. I am now settled here and wouldn't live anywhere else but Munjoy Hill. It is truly special to hear fog horns, the train, and the tug boats hard at work in the harbor. The sounds and the smells leave a lastly impression. In addition to being a Realtor, I am also an artist and founded the Society for East End Arts with a few fellow-artists almost 10 years ago. I love walking on the Eastern Promenade with my dog, Coali, where there is an off-leash area for her to run and socialize with the other Hill dogs.

Colleen Bedard purchased this apartment in 1988

This property is unique with its huge round window, roof deck, and bank of windows. I bought this property for myself and added a 3rd floor dormer which greatly expanded the usable living space on the 3rd floor. I have lived in this unit several times over the past 25 years. It's a great place to hang out.

When I saw this property, I had to have it--and so did several other people. I was in a multiple offer situation and was fortunate enough to be the chosen buyer. It's a comfortable house with terrific views. The private roof top deck--with its ladder access and step-through window--is probably my favorite spot to sit on a sunny day. (The roof deck can be challenging for some people to access because of the set-up.)

BEAUTIFUL LOFT APT-AMAZING LIGHT, AWESOME TV

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here a full week. What a convenient location, clean rental & extremely helpful owner! We had a few questions once in the unit, contacted the owner and she was responsive immediately. We found it to be immaculate and the natural light-beautiful!! Great little restaurants, coffee shop, etc on Congress Ave that are walkable. Delightful location!! We enjoyed going up to the rooftop-a different view for sure. Nice sunsets....

Great location . Most things are located within easy walking distance.
The place had great charm and comfortable beds. Would recommend this location.
Only complaint is that getting ip and down to the rooftop was
Not safe.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us! Yes; accessing the rooftop deck does require a slow approach up the ladder and then stepping through the window/door. It is very unconventional. Once you're up on the deck, the view is wonderful. The roof deck is not for everyone, however. Thankfully, we have an expansive park at the foot of the street where you can sit and enjoy front row views of Casco Bay!

BRIGHT APARTMENT AT SUPER LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay in this apartment was great. It is a special place, located in a quiet street with lots of parking, just steps away from an amazing park and bay. The apartment itself has so many windows, we loved the light (note there are almost no curtains, which did not bother us, but if you want to sleep in the dark you may want to bring a sleeping mask). It is an easy 15 min walk to the Old Port area with the restaurants. The roof deck is a bit challenging to access. Communication with the owner was perfect, definitely would visit this place again.

Owner's Response: Yes; this is a bright, sunny apartment, and it is a great idea to bring an eye mask if you want to sleep in a bit. (Especially this time of year with our early sun rises.) Accessing the roof deck does require dexterity but is well worth the effort once you are on the roof! Thanks for staying with us!!!

Location

Car: recommended

Munjoy Hill has become one of the most desirable locations to live and vacation in Maine's largest city. This is a friendly and eclectic neighborhood with a mix of long-time residents and newcomers alike. The neighborhood is popular because of its proximity to the 2 acre Eastern Promenade Park, local restaurants, and shops. It is an easy walk to the coffee shop and Rosemont Market, where you will find fresh produce, meats, cheeses and wines.

Walk or bike to the Casco Bay Ferry and spend a few hours or the day on one of the 'calendar islands' in Casco Bay. SailMaine offers the use of their boats to experienced boaters for a small fee or take lessons from them and learn to sail.

Munjoy Hill has a vibrant artist community. The Society for East End Arts (SEA) holds 2 annual events--a holiday sale in December and open studio tour in June. Many artists also open their studios during Portland's First Friday Artwalk each month.

Portland is a foodie town. We have so much wonderful food to choose from. Visit the highly acclaimed Farmer's Market for locally raised fruits, vegetables and even meats. Wondering where to eat out tonight? The choices of great food are endless. Walk to the Front Room, the Blue Spoon or Bar Lola on Munjoy Hill. For a little more exercise before your meal, take the East End trail into downtown Portland's Old Port to dine at any one of many delicious restaurants. Food carts are new to Portland, and we are loving these new additions to our food scene.

Feel like heading to the beach? We are 20 minutes to the lovely beaches in Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough. Head down to the East End Beach to launch your kayak, paddleboard, or windsurfer.

In the summer, catch an outdoor concert or a movie. As a small city, Portland offers everything from museums to galleries to fine dining. We're casual. There are not too many where shorts or jeans are not the wardrobe of choice!
