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

Warm and comfortable apartment in Portland, Maine

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in the apartment in Portland Maine. Sue and Barry are wonderful hosts, and always have great suggestions of what to see and do in the area. Portland has so many interesting places to visit, and with the location of this residence, all are within walking distance.

The apartment itself is warm and cozy, with everything you could want for a weekend or vacation. The new bathroom is gorgeous!! We feel completely at "home" when we stay here, and having restaurants, etc. nearby makes it convenient to plan your itinerary ...no long drives anywhere or parking issues. They provide a parking space for each visitor's car. I have recommended this to friends and co workers .

Lovely spacious comfortable - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Sue and Barry for an absolutely wonderful stay. The apartment was even nicer than the pictures, and so well set up for our stay with our 16 month old son - the crib and high chair were especially nice to have already there. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking at "home". The location is perfect. Sue was always easily accessible for any questions but we had complete privacy . We can't imagine a betrer place for our vacation in Portland.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This terrific apartment exceeded our expectations. Sue and Barry are incredibly thoughtful hosts. To say that they made us feel welcome is an understatement. They are clearly invested in making sure that their guests are not only provided all the comforts of home, but are also informed about all that Portland has to offer. They clearly delight in sharing the things they love about their city. The apartment was immaculately clean, spacious, tastefully decorated, and incredibly comfortable. From the fresh flowers to the snacks left in the kitchen to the extra towels to the basket of information/magazines/flyers in the living room, there were a hundred small touches that made the apartment feel like a wonderful home away from home during our 6 night stay. And the location is absolutely perfect. There are phenomenal restaurants, shops, and the Art Museum just a few blocks away, and it is an easy walk to Old Port for lots of other shopping and eating. We could not have been happier with our decision to stay here, and we certainly intend to come back soon!

Superb place to stay in Portland

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and it was a perfect place to stay to explore this great city and nearby beauty spots. The apartment itself is wonderful - fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's also a great location. Downtown and the port are within walking distance, as are some great places to eat.

Sue & Barry were excellent owners and greeted us on our arrival with goodies and loads of information about the area. I can't recommend this property and its owners enough, and if you are staying in Portland you should stay here! We will when we return to this great city and state.
