When our family goes on our own adventures, we scrub down our house, store our most prized possessions and rent out our living space. A property manager takes care of the house and helps to make sure guests are comfortable. Her phone number will be left for guests in the house.
House set up The front door of the house has an electronic lock on it for easy entry. We ask that guests please keep the front door locked at all times.
Our house has two other rental units in it. Renters of our living space share a front door, entry hall and a powder room with the other guests in our house.
BEDROOMS There is one bedroom on the 2nd floor for your use with a queen size bed. The other two bedrooms are on the third floor: both with queen size beds. All bedrooms have air conditioners during summer months.
LINENS Clean sheets will be put on all of the beds and clean towels will be left for you. If you need extra linens, please let us know or ask our property manager.
INTERNET ACCESS There is also wireless access in the house if you brought your own laptop.
KITCHEN You are welcome to use anything you see in the kitchen and pantry. Please don’t feel shy! There is no reason for you to invest in things like olive oil and spices when the kitchen is filled with these items!
We have a few “rules” about the care of pots and knives, but you are welcome to use anything you find in the kitchen
BATHROOMS 2nd floor: Full bath at the end of the hall. An ADA approved hand rail is mounted on the wall along the long side of the tub. As the tub can be slippery and the tub is quite deep, we recommend holding on as you get out!
Washer & Dryer: A High Efficiency front loading washer and a dryer are available for renter use in the 2nd floor bathroom. Detergent is provided.
3rd floor: Another full bath off of master bedroom.
TV ROOM A flat screen tv, dvd player, Wii, Apple TV are all available for guest use in our TV room.
DINING ROOM A dining table big enough for 6 people is available in the dining room. A larger breakfast nook off the kitchen is also available and can seat 9 if you squeeze in.
DECK AND GAS GRILL Our deck has a space with patio furniture under a screened gazebo and a nice size outdoor dining table. A small play house and waterproof toys are ready for kids and their imaginations to enjoy. A new gas grill is also at your disposal.
Bikes: You are welcome to put your bikes in the back yard and on the deck. If you did not bring a bike, you can easily rent one around the corner at Gorham Bike and Ski.
Driveway: Guests renting this space has access to two parking spaces in our driveway. Other guests and cleaning crew might park for a few minutes in the driveway but will be informed that they will need to move their car upon request.
Street Parking: If that does not work for you, you can park on the street from 5pm until 10 am on weekdays if you can find a spot. There are no restrictions on weekends. You can also park any time on Mellen street. Please make sure you “park smart,” minding the gap between you and the next car or curb so that there will be plenty of parking for everyone!
Parking Garages: There are several city run parking structures as well as privately run garages. The closest garage is at the end of Deering Street, on High Street adjacent the Westin.
An e-commerce guru from upstate New York, a college instructor Colorado native, and a quintessential four year old Mainer, we love our life in Portland, but we love to travel, too!
Barbara Mascarenas purchased this house in 2008
We came to Portland on vacation from Washington, DC and never left. We immediately fell in love with the neighborhood and rented until we found the right house to buy to be in this location. We are close to everything downtown offers, but our street is tree-lined and neighborly.
This property has a well equipped kitchen, large dining room, living room with flat screen TV, and private back patio. It had plenty of space for our group of 3 couples. Downtown Portland, restaurants, and activities are within walking distance, yet the neighborhood is quaint and residential. This was a great base for our vacation and felt like home when we returned each evening.
Place is nice. There is 3 floors. 1st floor is lr, dr, kitchen. 2nd floor is a bedroom and a full bath. 3rd floor has 2 bedrooms 1 full bath.
No crib available; only mattress
Lots of stairs. Stairs are at an incline so it could be a challenge.
Grill - only 1/2 working
The place is not for someone that stays up past 8pm and wants to have a nice time during vacation- neighbors get annoyed at any type of noise- inside and outside.
Parking is a challenge unless you are the only guest.
One of the bathrooms is out in hallway
Bathtub a challenge for someone that has problems getting in/out of tubs with no handrails
Within walking distance to anything around town.
Comfortable and homey place
Kitchen is well equipped.
Nice little patio
Our house is walking distance to Portland's Arts District and Old Port. There are several parks nearby, including Deering Oaks, which hosts an amazing farmer's market, summer concert series, festivals, a wading pool and playground for small kids and sports facilities as well as winter ice skating. Portland boasts an amazing food and beer scene. Portland is a great base for a Maine vacation. Within 5 miles you will find beautiful, clean small beaches. A 20 mile drive (or train ride) will get you to the famous 'Old Orchard Beach' with a board walk and large sandy beach. Easy drives to large and small lakes and beautiful hikes. Twenty miles to Freeport outlet shopping and less than 1 hour to Kittery outlets.
