Overview

About the property

Gorgeous Contemporary Suite with Full Kitchen across from Waterfront. Parking.

Leave your car in the complimentary lot across the street and walk everywhere.

Fall in love with Portland in your very own private, top-floor penthouse suite on Commercial Street with stunning views of the cityscape and harbor.

Watch the cruise ships from your very own cupola while taking in the sunrise or sunset with a fresh cup of coffee or glass of bubbly from the 7th floor. You will not be disappointed.

This renovated 1850's former warehouse located right next to the Custom House offers a mix of luxury + comfort, contemporary + old-world charm.

Walk 100 steps across the street and drape your legs over the marina dock while having your morning coffee and looking at the boats. The popular Casco Bay Ferry to the islands is also within view and a brief walk away. It’s the perfect location to walk around Portland. It doesn’t get better than this.

Buy the freshest seafood in town right across the street, fresh off the boats. Cook for your family in your well-stocked contemporary kitchen, with everything you might need for light breakfasts, take-in meals, and a relaxing night of home-cooked dinner and cable TV.

Favorite amenities and features include heated bathroom floors, exposed bricks throughout, stainless appliances, oversized leather sectional, TV’s in both bedrooms, plus an awesome sound system that includes a Harmon Kardon 3770 tuner/receiver in the living area to stream your devices, a pair of Paradigm free-standing speakers in the living area, and matching speakers in each bedroom ceiling.

Right out your door is the best of Portland: Starbucks - 60 second walk, the award-winning Standard Baking bakery + Fore Street Restaurant – 2 mins. away. The Famous Dimillos floating restaurant -across the street. The renowned donut shop The Holy Donut - a 2 minute walk. This might be the best-located vacation rental in all of Portland.

Looking for relaxation? We’ve got you covered, from the very comfortable beds with high quality white linens to the deep soaking tub with floor-to-ceiling windows to the luxury custom-tiled walk-in showers. It’s all in the details.

This is a very special place.

Whole Foods + Trader Joes are just a 5 minute car ride. Better yet, leave your car in the complementary parking lot across the street and walk everywhere.

Great for a family vacation, tourists without car, age 55+, or a romantic getaway. An excellent alternative to a hotel stay.

For an unrivaled view better than any hotel, with privacy and security that is unmatched, choose the Percival Suites from The Watch, your go-to destination when in Portland. If the Percival is booked, please check out our other listing, the Margaret Suite @The Watch.

Thank you and we hope to hear from you.

This completely unique property is a prime location for a true Portland urban experience. Guests are literally steps away from fishmongers and butchers, coffee shops, fine dining, street carts, fresh fruit and produce, ferry rides to the islands in the bay, biking and walking trails, beaches, swimming, concerts, street festivals, truly unique retail shops, Bars to Brewery tours, Duck boat to trolley tours. The to do list is endless. Or you can choose to do nothing but retreat via the elevator to your sixth floor penthouse and observe all of this from one of the taller renovated warehouses on the street.

Exquisite, Comfortable and Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is just perfect. The furnishings are hip and loaded with style. Lounging, watching the harbor and enjoying the space rivals fun Portland. No detail is missed-- from toiletries and linens to free parking--which is worth $50.00 a

night. The manager, Chris is accessible and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Accommodations and Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at this property with another couple and thoroughly loved it. The location is surrounded by entertainment and food options that can be easily walked to. The property has in and out parking that allows you to take a car sightseeing to local sites.

The accommodations itself was a modern first class property with views that you will never get tired of. I will definitely stay there the next time we are in Portland,
