LUXURY COASTAL RETREAT IN HISTORIC DISTRICT

Portland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

Immaculate 1-BD 1 BA condo with a private rooftop deck and a gourmet kitchen (granite / stainless finishes and a dishwasher) perfect for a romantic getaway or seaside vacation in a city consistently lauded for its premium quality of life and excellent 'foodie' scene. The apartment has hardwood / cork floors, a claw-foot tub for soaking (and a shower too), and luxury-quality linens, furnishings, and amenities. This is the top (third) floor of a 1860s French empire building, on a quiet, tree-lined street in a West End registered historic district, just off Longfellow Square. The area is walking or biking distance to several farmer markets, top-ranked restaurants, the art museum, theaters, and cultural venues. It is close to Maine Medical Center (and often rented to visiting doctors on rotations as well). This is the private retreat of a travel writer, who is often away on assignment. Several beaches are within a 10-20 minute drive. The airport / train station is about 10 minutes by taxi. There is off street parking for one car; camper vans/trailers not permitted. For stays of less than one month, please inquire about rates; short term stays are generally only available occasionally, but I am happy to consider from time to time.

Please note that short term rates are higher than the monthly rates.

Comfortable, clean and quiet + good location

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for 4 nights and had a great, relaxing experience. Good location, close to everything. The apartment is roomy, with lots of light, and very quiet. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to friends.

Portland is consistently lauded as one of the US cities with the highest quality of life and as a mecca for enthusiasts of fine dining. It is a premier tourist destination, and this apartment is in one of the most prestigious parts of the city--just off Longfellow Square and the West End. The street is a registered historic district. Beaches, theater, live music, shopping, farmer markets, and fine dining are all minutes away. The apartment is in a 1860 French Empire style building, converted to a boutique condo association.
