Best VRBO ever

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBOs in the US and Europe, and this was the most fun. Our hosts, Barry & Sue, made it a special trip. We arrived at 1 am, and the key was in the mailbox; there were chocolates and coffee waiting for the next day - and fresh flowers. The place is small, but offers everything you could want. The towels were soft, the sheets smelled wonderful, the water was hot! This was a great place to visit Portland - even though it was 30 degrees and windy. I would recommend this studio apartment to any couple wanting a great place to stay; congenial hosts; and comfort .

Wonderful place and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this place for three nights in August and absolutely loved it! The place was on a smaller side but had everything you need. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. The owners, Sue and Barry, were so welcoming and accommodating! I would highly recommend this place!

Three days in Portland.

Sue and Barry were great hosts. The studio room was perfect. Nice treats ready for us when we arrived along with ground coffee per our taste. Any time I would be in Portland this would be my first choice.

The unit was all that was needed for a wonderful stay in Portland ME. Easy walk to business areas. Lots of dining options, with something for everyone. The hosts were wonderful and easy to talk with. We most definitely would love to come back.
