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 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 first floor with easy access to the private, newly landscaped 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 granite countertops and ss appliances. 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 with chiliwich tile in the kitchen and bath.
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.
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.
Nancy MacCausland purchased this apartment in 2011
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.
Our unit is on the first floor with easy access to the newly landscaped back yard and with it's private front door. I love walking and bicycling around this area and being able to walk to the ferry terminal.
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.
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.
We couldn't say enough good things about this property. Close to the Portland city center and harbor. Within walking distance to good restaurants and scenic vistas of the harbor. The apartment was well furnished, clean and quiet. The owner, Nancy, took care of all our needs and called us several times to make sure everything was OK. We will recomment this location to our friends and relatives when they plan to visit Maine.
I apologize for the delay in this review. The property was well maintained and very convenient to the interstate and all of downtown Portland. Althought residential, the neighborhood was very quite in the evening and we heard virtually no street noise. Nancy was great in preparing everything for our arrival and giving helpful information on the area. Thanks again for the recommendation of Grace for our anniversary. It was an amazing meal. Cars have to be shuffled as noted in and out of the drive but we had no problem, and much of the time we just parked on the street. We had a minor problem with cable when there was a power surge, but the cable company (contact number left by Nancy) was very helpful in walking me through the reset of everything. I also had to reboot the wireless, but again no problem. Also, the kitchen was already stocked with many essentials, beds very comfortable and plenty of spacious room. Be sure to walk just a short block down to the Eastern Promenade for great views and picnics. Also be sure to get up to the outlets in Freeport. Much cheaper than the ones down state. A great and relaxing week.
We were very pleased with the apartment. It was clean, well equipped, and met all of our needs. The location on the Eastern "Prom" is convenient to downtown (walking distance) and is close to one of the best views of the bay and islands in Portland.
The owner was very helpful and even called to check in and make sure everything was OK shortly after our arrival. Our stay could not have been nicer!
The apartment was great. Everything we needed and more. Nancy was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend this sweet spot for a visit to Portland, Maine! The apartment was very neat and clean. We loved it! Thank you for such a nice welcome book with great ideas and suggestions1
Our second stay at the Vesper street apartment. This is a lovely apartment in a beautiful area of Portland. Highly recommend this rental property - spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. Hope to return for a third time next summer.
You are steps away from the East End beach and are in walking distance to the Old Port, with its many fabulous restaurants and fine shopping establishments. The St Lawrence Theatre, trendy restaurants and local pubs are less then 3 blocks. There are many boat/fishing tours, a downtown trolley tour or the fun amphibious Duck Tour to learn about great city. Portlands Art's District is alive with many exciting galleries and live performance venues that dazzle the senses. It's a short drive to famous Freeport with its many outlets stores for a great shopping experience.
