A lovely stay
Clean, easy to access and comfortable. Thoughtful little extras - cell phone chargers, bottle of wine, little chocolates, fresh flowers. Very communicative and accommodating host. Really enjoyed our stay!
Family Get-away to Portland
We had 5 in our party. The apartment was spacious enough for everyone and clean. Treats were a nice touch and made us feel welcome. The kitchen was good for breakfast and reheating left-overs, but I don't think we would have cooked an entire dinner there. The air mattress was big and great for our single, very tall, son. The beds in the bedrooms were very comfortable. The NEST thermostats are only for heat; there are window AC units and of course we were there during an exceptionally hot period. But the AC units handled the heat and we were happy. Parking on the street is around the corner, but never really too far. We were able to pull across the street for quick loading and unloading of suitcases, etc.
We did actually walk to the harbor area for shopping and dinner. It was a bit far and I don't think I'd do it alone as a female, because of some of the areas one passes, but in a group we were very comfortable. I suggest either walking into town, driving half-way, parking in a free area and walking the rest, or ubering there, because parking by the wharf was expensive.
Overall, we had a great experience. The lighthouses were beautiful. We enjoyed a family reunion at Sebago Lake State Park, and shopping in Freeport is always fun!
Great location to downtown and park
Better than expected. Was a little nervous about the area, but ended up being a great location overall. Loved the roof deck, access to park, and many great restaurants. Also, pet friendly so we could bring our family dog on mini vacation!
Nice alleyway apt but parking was a block away
Very nice apartment with easy check in (smart lock with code) the only downside is you have to park at least one block away as there is no legal parking closer... other then that I have no complaints, the Home was clean ,well kept, had plenty of coffee, water, well decorated and spacious
Good location but the building needs some TLC
Good things first: Location is awesome. It is less than 10 minutes to downtown Portland/Old Port as well as South Portland.The neighborhood is awesome and all of the neighboring buildings have been updated. There is a cute breakfast place around the corner, and street parking was never an issue. The mattresses were super comfortable and the security system was great. Amenities (snacks, shampoo, hairdryer, waters, good towels, and high quality tissues and TP) were a nice touch. Eddie is also very responsive and professional.
Room for improvement: The building itself could use some updating, both inside and out. The unit itself was updated but not with an eye for quality. The dropped ceiling panels were stained. The couches were peeling. There was a missing floorboard under turn carpet in the back bedroom. And a fresh paint job throughout the whole building might brighten it up. The other unusual experience we had (only on Friday) was that they were building a deck directly outside the living room window. We left earlier than we'd planned that morning to get away from the noise of the drills, hammers, and saw. It might have made more sense to wait until a time the unit was vacant to do that kind of work. Luckily, we'd woken up early that day. My friend also found an opened water in her closet/office and the garbage can in her room had not been emptied. We did not ask for the unit to be re-serviced because otherwise, the unit was very clean and this appeared to be an oversight.
I get that this unit is in a good location and walkable to downtown Portland but this place shows it’s age, even with some improvements that were made. The bedroom door won’t shut. You cannot raise your arms above your head for hitting the drop ceiling (a few inches above my head). The bathroom leans to one side and there are areas of the floor in various rooms that you can feel gaps underneath it. It does have beautiful wood floors in one of the bedrooms. You cannot get local tv stations or the major networks. It has more of a college apartment feel to it. None of these are deal busters individually but collectively it detracts from the experience. I’ve stayed in nicer places for much less. I feel there are improvements that should be made to make this a more comfortable place to stay and I don’t believe the price aligns with the condition of the unit. We appreciated the snacks and wine that were left for us and the owner/MGR was responsive if we had questions.
