About Gina & Rene

We are holistic health practitioners that specialize in yoga, qi gong, bodywork and emotional healing. We love Portland, nature and community. We also love to travel the world sharing the yoga and experiencing the local lifestyle. The energy is very light here from the healing that takes place. It is also a very clean and comfortable apt. It is cleaned by holistic health practitioners, so the energy in the apt. is very clear. Come relax and enjoy it!

Gina & Rene purchased this studio in 2007

Why Gina & Rene chose South Portland

Because it is a small city surrounded by the ocean. Clean air, beaches nearby, culturally alive city.

What makes this studio unique

Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Easy drive or bike ride to beaches. Friendly people live here & they are friendly and welcoming to everyone. The pace is slower and there is creativity happening here.

Wonderful apartment in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February staying in this studio apartment. It was immaculate and met all our needs perfectly. It is located on a quiet street but a short walk from lots of restaurants and music venues plus the art museum and Maine Historical Society. Thank you Gina and Rene for being the perfect hosts!

Perfect little place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment is part of the owner's larger house with a convenient separate entrance and it truly feels like your own space. The location is great--a quiet area with everything in town in walking distance.

Great stay & convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Portland with two girlfriends and we had a lovely stay in this quaint apartment. Portland is a very walkable city and there were many great restaurants and sites within walking distance. The apartment is on the small side, but it was perfect for the three us. The apartment was very clean and came fully stocked with towels, extra blankets, a city map, and even a list of suggested restaurants and activities. Thanks to our hosts!

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Comfy bed and cozy setting. Would have liked to had coffee provided for at least the first night. Shower is very small. Docking station for i-pod was nice but a radio or TV would have been nice for checking local news, traffic & weather, or for watching a movie.

Owner's Response: Just a reminder Reggie, the apt is meant for retreats. We do not provide coffee or a TV for this reason. There is a coffee shop right across the street, which our guests who drink coffee appreciate. A coffee maker & caffeinated tea are provided. Most people have phones to check weather. We do have wifi. Glad you liked the location & bed. We enjoyed meeting you & your daughter.
