Overview

Portland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 stories, 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath, walk everywhere, expansive city and water views.

Between the Eastern Promenade and the Old Port stands Munjoy Hill, a friendly, colorful neighborhood with restaurants, a local foods grocer, cafes, art center. Munjoy Hill is a 10-15 minute walk to the Old Port's shopping, restaurants and nightlife ('downtown') - and a 5-10 minute walk to the grassy fields, playground, and beach at the Eastern Promenade (Portland's prettiest waterfront park.)

Our vacation rental is the top two stories of an apartment building on top of the hill, directly facing the Portland Observatory with views to the ocean, the harbor, and over the whole city. Sunny, spacious, and comfortable, the 2-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom apartment has everything you need for your Portland vacation.

Built in 1886 our building combines old world charm with completely renovated apartments. The vacation rental is a two-story apartment with two bedrooms (queen bed and double bed) and two bathrooms on the building's third floor. The master bathroom has a custom tile shower. The hallway bathroom has a bathtub shower. Both bathrooms have radiant floor heat. The fourth floor is an open floor plan with a modern kitchen, den area with Smart TV, plenty of chairs for lounging, and a small powder room. The maple wood floors and modern fixtures are all brand new. The triple-glazed windows (made in Maine!) keep it comfortable year-round.

We live part-time in another apartment in the building. We're happy to help you plan your Portland vacation. This vacation rental is new and we are still putting the finishing touches on the building (minor landscaping, painting.)

About Stephanie Dunn

My husband Mark and I live in rural Maine but have spent the past year in Portland renovating this building. Though our 'day jobs' consist of computer work we enjoyed building our home in the woods and wanted to keep on building. Portland drew us in with fantastic food from the restaurants to the farmers' markets, and kept us returning for live music, art walks, local brews, and beautiful nearby beaches.

Stephanie Dunn purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Stephanie Dunn chose Portland

Once we visited Munjoy Hill we didn't want to stay anywhere else in Portland. The neighborhood is friendly with interesting architecture. We can easily walk to nightlife in the Old Port (without having to hear it while trying to sleep.) I love jogging the trail around the Back Cove and over to the East End Beach. We enjoy making dinner with fresh seafood from the Harbor Fish Market and fresh produce from Rosemont - both within walking distance. We rarely get in a car when we're in Portland.

What makes this apartment unique

The views from our fourth floor are some of the best in Portland. Watch the moon rise behind the Portland Observatory or the sun set over the Back Cove with The Presidential Mountains in the distance. See the fireworks from Sea Dogs games. We often hear 'wow' as people crest the stairs to the fourth floor for the first time. It is a wow apartment.

You know it is a great place when you start planning a return visit before you leave. This is one of the best VRBO we have experienced for location to the restaurants, downtown and sightseeing. It was very easy contacting the owners. This experience wants us to continue using VRBO.

Great location, beautiful apartment and views

  • 5 of 5
Four of us (2 couples) stayed for three nights. It is really a fantastic apartment. The bedrooms are on one level, with the kitchen and dining area, living room space and patio on the level above. The apartment was clean, modern and beautiful! It is walking distance to restaurants and shops, the Old Port, and the Eastern Prom. The views from the top floor are beautiful. Our party of 4 was very happy with the stay. Highly recommended!

Exactly as Promised

  • 5 of 5
We use VRBO for all of our vacations and our stay here was one of the best experiences we’ve had. We are already recommending this place to others. The apartment is very close to Portland’s popular features and Munjoy Hill gives you the authentic feel of what it is like to be a local. The apartment was modern, fully equipped and immaculate. The view from the deck is spectacular and is where we spent our mornings drinking coffee and our evenings drinking wine. We cooked a Maine lobster dinner for 4 one night and had everything we needed to prepare and serve it including spices. The owners were very helpful and respected our privacy. The place is on the 3rd and 4th floor so you have to climb some stairs but it is well worth the trip!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful apartment, located in the Munjoy Hill area. It is an easy walk to the eastern promenade, which is beautiful and close to Old Port. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is new, it has all the amenities you would want and the view is spectacular from the top floor. It was clean and well maintained. The owners are very helpful. There are great restaurants within walking distance.

Munjoy Hill stands between the brick buildings of the Old Port full of shops and restaurants, and the Eastern Promenade - the best recreation zone in Portland with a playground, beach, grassy fields, ball courts, kayak tours, paddle board rentals and more. The hill is a friendly neighborhood with great restaurants - The Front Room, Silly's, local foods grocer Rosemont Market, coffee shops, bakeries, Miccuci's Italian Market, Otto's Pizza (mashed potato bacon scallion!), plus unique vintage and craft shops. At the foot of the hill is Bayside with new breweries where you can taste craft beers, and check out the latest food trucks. Easy access to Portland Trails means scenic routes around the back bay or along the water to the Old Port.
