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 Portland

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.

Perfect Portland Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment! Tiff was great with contact info, welcome packet, and delivery of keys. The apartment is in a perfect location, and is exactly as portrayed. It's clean, well supplied, and just a relaxing place to enjoy at the end of a Portland day. Didn't always enjoy climbing the stairs, especially with luggage, but I guess the daily exercise was good for all of us! Tiff's recommendations are excellent, and we've added Solo Italiano and MJ Wine Bar( especially Sunday night jazz) for her consideration. Thank you Tiff for opening your wonderful home and sharing lovely Portland with us!

This is a super cute property but I think it would be helpful if the amount of stairs was made more clear. We took an 81 year old and although she doesn't need wheelchair access we would have chosen different had we known there were 45 steep stairs into hall, another flight into apt and yet another into bedroom. Exhausting with luggage.

Wonderful Portland experience in a totally cool place!

  • 5 of 5

We visited our son who is finishing a one year Federal Court Judge Clerkship in Portland and going back to Boston in Sept. Our 26 yr old daughter, a New Yorker, stayed with us inTiffany's perfectly situated and well- appointed apartment on Fore St. for our 4 day visit. The parking lot on Pearl St was easy and close as we walked everywhere.

The kitchen had everything we needed and the best was the 2nd floor balcony where all of the "kids" - 26-29 yr olds" joined us for a lovely cocktail hour. They did the 45 steps up to the apt better than we did! All in all a great spot.

Great pad!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our wedding weekend. We wanted a place close to all our wedding activities. Very spacious and well furnished. Nice view from the balcony off the bedroom. All the amenities we needed and quite clean.

It was the hottest weekend of the summer, and we would have appreciated A/C in the bedroom, but otherwise, I can't think of any improvements.

The owner was VERY nice and accommodating when we needed to adjust our reservation. Also, the check-in details and instructions were thorough and easy.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect for walking Portland. The space was space was great and had two good size pull out couches for sleep along with a bedroom. The balcony is relaxing overlooking commercial street. Several relatives stayed across the street at the Regency hotel, but ended up meeting at the house and it was never too crowded.

Fantastic spot, fantastic hosts

  • 4 of 5

The apt is beautifully situated in the Old Port. The bedroom has a wonderful deck to enjoy mooring coffee or evening glass of wine. At your front door are a great choice of restaurants and services...lots of lobster!! The hosts are fantastic and very attentive. Highly recommend the place.

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).
