Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Parkside - Portland on Avon/1 bedroom

One Bedroom Apartment- Sleeps 4 In Amazing Downtown Location!

This beautifully furnished one bedroom apartment for 4 is on the first floor of a historic 1880's building. Completely renovated but the charm of original hardwood floors and spacious kitchen and living room.

The kitchen has been remodeled with stainless appliances and tile floor. Bathroom has tile floor and a brand new tiled shower. Wi-fi and cable television. There is a charming outdoor space with seating area to relax and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee.

We are located within minutes to Portland Art Museum, numerous restaurants of all types, museums, several wonderful music venues and downtown Congress Street. We are within walking distance to Hadlock Field, home of the Portland SeaDogs,

and the Old Port District, noted for its upscale shops and eateries. We are a 5 minute walk to Deering Oaks Park where a fabulous Farmer's Market takes place every Saturday. We are also close to Casco Bay Lines, where ferries are available to hop the islands! Close to area beaches, Portland International Jetport , Concord Trailways and Amtrak Downeaster.

The perfect spot for a fun vacation or romantic getaway

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sue and Barry's for four days. They are a super couple and so easy to deal with. Barry met us at the stairs as we came up them and Sue joined him later to show us the apartment and also to tell us about the area. We have been to Portland before, but they told us about some of the local things to see and do.

The apartment is super clean and well appointed. It is on a quiet side street with parking on a small lot across the street, but very handy. We went to some of the local restaurants they suggested which were not in the Commercial street area since we had been in that area previously. They were excellent suggestions.

We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have to add to all the fabulous reviews of this place. Sue was wonderful-meeting us to give us the lay of the land both in the apartment and of Portland, and answer any questions we had. The place itself is lovely- clean, vintage with modern touches, and a great size for us and our 11 month old, and she even had a pack n play and high chair, both of which were much appreciated. We really loved the location here- literally within walking distance (or a quick drive if you prefer, we walked everywhere though) of everything-the ferry, Old Port, Eastern Promenade (longer walk), etc. It is situated in the Arts District, which has wonderful restaurants and a great funky neighborhood feel. If (when) we return to Portland, we would certainly stay here again!

Comfortable, cozy apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days last week in Portland. Sue and Barry welcomed us warmly and made sure that we had a good overview of the surrounding neighborhood and layout of Portland to get us off on the right foot. And speaking of foot...we were able to traverse most of the city on foot as this apartment is located in a convenient location...a couple miles to the city center and the waterfront. Perfect for how we like to explore! Barry had several great restaurant recommendations for us as well and helped us narrow down the many dining options that Portland has to offer. The apartment was clean and well appointed and had all of the comforts of home. We definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area and will be sure to book again if our travels take us in this direction.
