Our home is yours during our vacations abroad - we vacate leaving it professionally cleaned and fully equipped for your ease and comfort. It is a hundred year old home with airy rooms and modern design. We are located in a leafy neighborhood a block from Back Bay's walking and cycling trails, 2 miles to the heart of downtown Portland, ~20 minutes drive to many renowned Maine beaches.
Wifi, fireplace, washer/dryer and all amenities are included.
Kitchen is fully equipped with many condiments, wine glasses, and all that is required for the serious cook. Kitchen appliances include JennAir gas oven/stove, Bosch dishwasher, and on the deck a Weber propane bbq. All linens are provided, hotel ready.
This is a great environment for a family and friends' gathering.
The yard is fenced, private, and shady. There is parking in the driveway for two vehicles.
We've rented another of our homes for more than 15 years and are accustomed to catering to the discerning traveler. We are committed to your comfortable, hassle free experience in our home.
The neighborhood is lovely, near to the city center but within walking distance of several parks. Cycling is especially desirable in Portland, as everything is within a couple of miles, trails are often oceanside, and cycling lanes are safe.
Portland itself has become renowned for its foodie culture, but equally as appealing is the arts scene with great galeries, live music, and street festivals. Many of Maine's most famous beaches are a short drive away, and the Casco Bay islands an easy ferry ride.
We're educators in southern Maine who love to travel. We too have benefited from homeaway rentals and have always had positive experiences.
We love the integrity and personality of old buildings, but this one came with lots of modern finishes and updates we are really enjoying.
The yard is particularly lovely and private for an in-town location. The location is convenient to so much of what Portland and Maine is all about, but once here, you might just want to hang out in the yard and barbeque some of our rightly famous local foods!
Portland Maine has become renowned for its food scene, featuring local organic gardens, bakeries, craft beer and cheese, and of course fresh seafood. It is also an arts haven for theatre, live music, galleries and antiques. But its best feature is its location on Casco Bay and access to the many islands and seaside ambiance. It's a walkable, cyclable, fun place to be.
