Comfortable and Well Situated Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable and well situated apartment with short walks to great restaurants, shops, theaters and museums. Sue and Barry warmly welcomed us and gave us an informative overview of the area’s offerings highlighting experiences not to miss.

We highly recommend staying at this location for anyone looking for the privacy and convenience of your own apartment located in the middle of it all.

Great place to stay in Portland!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this property for 3 nights in Portland. Sue and Barry were extremely welcoming and provided great suggestions for things to do and restaurants in the area. They even provided a map of the top attractions.

The apartment is in a perfect location, in walking distance of everything from restaurants to shops. The apartment is much larger than we expected with a full living room, huge closets, a full kitchen with a table, bathroom and bedroom. It has wifi and came with a parking spot.

We really enjoyed our time in Portland and would definitely suggest this property to anyone else visiting!

Charming and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this VRBO for a long weekend trip to Portland and LOVED it! Sue and Barry were incredibly welcoming, spent time helping us learn about different places to see and eat at while we visited, and left us freshly ground coffee, chocolates, crackers, a little jar of Portland jam, and a handwritten note thanking us for choosing their apartment. Sue and Barry live right upstairs and are very accessible by text, but allowed us our privacy the entire weekend after meeting them. This apartment was a good size, especially for just the two of us (could fit a few more and still be comfortable) and everything was very clean! In addition, it was in a good location- very easy to walk to any bar, restaurant, etc. as long as you are okay with walking about up to 1 mile. If not walking- it was a very cheap Uber ride anywhere. I will definitely recommend this wonderful home to my friends if/when they visit Portland and would hope anyone reading this review would be interested in staying here as well! Thank you to the Goldsmiths for this lovely home!

Great location! Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here while we were visiting Portland. The apartment was an easy walk to quite a few restaurants and about a mile to Old Port shopping and restaurants as well. The apartment had A/C which helped cool things off during warm July evenings. Owners Sue and Barry were friendly, accommodating and gave lots of suggestions for dining and touring. We would definitely stay here again!
