Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Portland - 90 Vesper St , Eastern Prom

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 4 , Can book directly with owner , avoid fee

This lovely private 2 bedroom spacious apartment is in a perfect location. It is two blocks to East End beach, with walking and cycling trails all around Casco Bay and just up the street from Fort Allen Park. Around the corner you will find good restaurants, Hilltop Coffee,Lolita's wine and tapas bar, a bakery, Otto's yummy pizza and more. Rosemont Market has fresh local organic produce, local meats, amazing cheese and good wine. Two beach towels and chairs are provided for guests.

The apartment is on the third floor with a private deck off one of the bedrooms and a shared sunny back yard with barbecue and comfortable seating. The bedrooms have fresh linens on the queen size comfortable beds. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas range and custom cherry cabinets. The living area is tastefully furnished with wifi and a large apple TV. The bath has new vanity and freshly tiled tub shower combination.

The floors are hardwood throughout.

I love design and paid attention to the form and function of all the spaces .

There is ample parking on the street and also a space in the shared driveway.

You can easily get by with out a car but if you choose to explore, there are many beaches closeby. I particularly like Cape Elizabeth, Goose Rocks, and Kennebunk Beach. Also LLBeans is a 15 minute drive and if you want to spend a day in Boston, the train does return trips daily.

Both Trader Joes and Whole Foods as well as Hanniford are an easy drive.

Portland also has a vibrant art culture . The art school has fostered and attracted talented people in all the arts. Every Friday evening the Portland Museum of Art is free and there are free weekly concerts in Fort Allen Park.

About Nancy MacCausland

My husband and I purchased this 3 unit after selling our home in Kennebunk. We love Portland and can't believe how lucky we are to have found this property.

We were born in Prince Edward Island and return there for the summer months. Portland is our other home and our base for visiting our children and for traveling .

Nancy MacCausland purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Nancy MacCausland chose Portland

Once we decided on Portland, I discovered the East End or Munjoy Hill and didn't want to look anywhere else. We are less then 2 blocks to the Eastern Prom and Casco Bay, can walk to the ferry terminal and St Lawrence Theatre and The Front Room and Rosemont Market are just around the corner.

What makes this apartment unique

This unit is on the third floor with spacious sunny rooms, high ceilings and small peeks at Casco Bay. I love walking and bicycling around this area and being able to walk to the ferry terminal.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay at the Vesper Street apartment. The apartment is newly renovated. It is clean, comfortable and offered plenty of space for our family of three. The location is excellent. Great neighbourhood, close to the water, and some great restaurants. I would recommend this property. Its a great base to explore the lovely city of Portland, with it amazing restaurants, as well the many beautiful beaches just a short drive away.

Awesome location, Awesome apartment

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment. You couldn't ask for a better location. Nancy was great. There were so many great little restaurants to check out. They knew me by name at Otto's pizza. I stopped almost everyday for a slice. The best pizza ever! I walked to Hilltop Coffee every morning got an iced tea and then walked down to the Promenade to enjoy the most beautiful view you could ask for. I would definitely stay at this apartment again when we visit Portland. An awesome apartment in an awesome city!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, spacious, and very nicely situated two short blocks from the water on Portland's east end. Two roomy living areas, large kitchen and bath, and two good-sized bedrooms. It was perfect for our family vacation with a toddler with plenty of room for her travel bed. Kitchen has all the dishes and cookware needed. A short walk to groceries and restaurants. Easy access to the highway and a quick drive to several great beaches. Highly recommended!

Great location, perfect size for small family

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2yr old stayed here for a week. The apt was a perfect size for us, great for making meals, relaxing and using as a base for side trips. A short walk to a park with views of the bay and within walking distance of many attractions. Not entirely toddler friendly but we were able to move some stuff out of his reach. Would def stay here again!

Great location! Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I was on a solo trip and stayed at this gem of a place. First, Nancy was terrific. She was quick to respond to all my emails, called to make sure I got in okay, and emailed me the day I left to make sure everything was okay. The place itself was perfect. Super clean and modern with a lovely private patio outback. Location is amazing! You have coffee shops, restaurants, and markets pretty much outside your door. It is a residential neighborhood, about 15-20 minute walk to Old Portland.and downtown area with some great walking/biking trails along the waterfront that will take you right into the action. You're within driving distance of all the great foodie stomps, and some decent beaches if that's more your thing. I found Portland to be a really welcoming place made more so by Nancy and her place. I highly recommend adding this property to your list of places to stay.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in October and really loved the apartment, which had everything we needed and was comfortable and tastefully decorated. There are some really nice shops, bars and restaurants nearby but the best part is the stunning view across the bay only a couple of minutes' walk from the doorstep. Portland is a lovely city and the New England scenery in October is spectacular.
