About Tiff

I was born and raised in a smaller town about an hour north of Portland, fishing, picking blueberries, & mowing lawns. I attended the University of Maine as an undergraduate and have watched the city of Portland grow into the fantastic area it is now. My roots will always be in Maine as I'm also affiliated with the local radio station Hot 104.7. I stay connected to the Portland area often, frequent the up & coming restaurants and am intimately familiar with the area (and surrounding areas), so if you need help planning your trip or recommendations while you’re there, just let me know!

Tiff purchased this condo in 2015

Why Tiff chose Downtown

This condo is exactly what I wanted. The building and unit are very unique with the original structures. The unit is in immaculate condition, & the amazing water/harbor/city views combined w/ the outdoor space can't be beat. 340 Fore St is the perfect location, next to my favorite restaurants & activities, and it gives you the ability to walk to practically everywhere you would want. You can rent a car but it isn't necessary & Uber is available in Portland anyway.

What makes this condo unique

Literally steps from Fore St & Central Provisions, two nationally ranked & recognized restaurants.

Perfectly located in the charming "Old Port" area of Portland, my vacation rental is located at the top of a historical building, with views of the harbor, marina, water, & the city. The "Old Port" has everything: the best restaurants in the city, bars & nightlife, & easy walking distance to all activities. Eat at 5 star restaurants (Fore St, Central Provisions) or grab the quintessential lobster roll at Maine Lobster Company. Shop along the piers and among the cobblestone streets, walk along the waterfront and through the Eastern Promenade, taking in the best views in Portland, & pick up local veggies at the farmer's market. Try your skills paddleboarding or sailing, & then grab a homemade ice cream cone (I recommend black raspberry).

Perfect location - gorgeous area

  • 5 of 5

Everything as stated. Clean and cozy. Amazing views. All the housewares/linens we needed. Mornings and afternoons on the deck were fantastic. Central to wherever you wanted to be. As with other reviews, must pay attention to the stairs, basically 3 stories up and additional to the bedroom. We, however, didn't mind the exercise! Would definitely come back.

Beautiful condo in an incredible location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a relaxing week at this property. The patio outside of the bedroom was gorgeous for enjoying the breeze and having a drink. The location was close to everything. With the exception of the Portland Head Light, we walked everywhere. The entire property was well maintained and felt like home. I would definitely recommend this for another couple. Overall, fantastic experience and wonderful stay.

Ideal location, great condo, and fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse condo has everything you will need for a wonderful stay in Old Port. It is clean and spacious with a fully stocked kitchen. The deck provides a great view of street activity, a couple of marinas, and cruise ships that make port while you sleep. The owner is super responsive to any questions you might have and provides a great welcome packet for those looking for recommendations on what to see, where to park, dining, and entertainment. The only challenge some may have are the steps leading up to the unit. Those with physical limitations will likely have difficulty. Otherwise, the exercise is good and well worth the climb! I will definitely be looking into staying here again should my travels take me back to Portland.

Great spot in the center of Portland

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again, Tiffany, for letting us use your place. It is in a fantastic spot right down by the happening parts of Portland. Pretty much anything you'd want was a within a block or two.

The place itself felt larger than the pictures indicated. Was very clean on arrival & Tiffany was extremely responsive. No issues with the keys, windows, stuff not as advertised, there was plenty of towels, etc etc. I can't imagine it having gone better, or reasonably expected anything more.

Only thing worth mentioning, if you are not used to city noises it can get loud at nights on the weekend. That's what you get when you're in the middle of Portland.
