LINDA DAHL purchased this studio in 1994
My home is not elaborate or the Ritz Carlton. But it is clean and comfortable. I keep your lodging cost down and affordable so you and yours can spend time and money doing what you love to do.
I will say it again, location, location, location.
What I enjoyed the most: Walking to restaurants and entertainment. Close to the beach.
Things that worked well: The bed was comfortable. The linens and towels were lovely. The apartment is well appointed and nicely decorated.
Within walking distance to Portsmouth that has lots of restaurants. Within driving distance of Boston, Bar Harbor, Salem.
Wonderful place to stay! Nothing fancy but very clean and very comfortable. Location is perfect. Less than a mile walk to Portsmouth for dining, shopping and entertainment. Spent an afternoon just sitting outside in the courtyard. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Linda is very responsive to any questions or needs.
Nice efficiency close to bridge (easy walk to Portsmouth, NH.) Kitchen is well equipped and very clean. Bed is OK, although would benefit from cotton sheeting and better pillows. Nice to have parking at rear of property.
Weather was rainy and humid during my stay, which made the ground-floor location muggy, despite window a/c unit in bedroom. A luggage rack would be useful to hold suitcases.
Only negative is the bathroom; shower so small that unadjustable shower head means a short person will not get totally wet, nor will towels dry out.
Linda lives upstairs and was easy to contact if needed. We totally enjoyed meeting Linda and her little dog. The property was in the perfect location for us to visit Portsmouth, NH. Very safe area and a short walk over the bridge gets you into downtown Portsmouth and Prescott Park. Also right down the street from downtown Kittery, which offers some great restaurants, cafes and gift shops.
The apartment was a comfortable space for the two of us. The kitchen does not have a full sized refrigerator, but was not an issue for us as we were eating out. It was big enough to hold small items for breakfast and that was all we needed. The Keurig machine in the kitchen was a real plus. Makes great coffee. There is an enclosed patio with grape vines and flowers. It was a lovely space to sit and read.
We would definitely stay again if back in the area.
My only reservation in touting this place is that others will find out about how great it is, and make it harder for me in the future. While this place may not be perfect for those used to luxury, it is the perfect vacation place for two. It's clean, comfortable, cozy, and best of all close to everything that Kittery and Portsmouth has to offer. Linda is an incredible kind hostess and the rental has everything necessary for a good stay in the area. It truly is our little home away from home. I loved the neighborhood feel of the area, but the accessibility to all things tourist.
Clean and smart apartment in walking distance to restaurants on the water. Located in a cute neighborhood just over the bridge from Portsmouth NH.
