Studio Suite in quiet residential neighborhood
About Sam Surprise
I live in the main house on the property and run my Marketing & Communications business out of my home. I have a lovely Bernese Mountain dog, Luccia, who is friendly with everyone.
Sam Surprise purchased this Studio in 2004
Why Sam Surprise chose Nasons Corner
My Studio Suite is perfect for a couple who want more space and amenities than a hotel and want to experience coastal Maine in any season. The studio is newly built, has air-conditioning, hardwood floors and is great for active people who want to explore the coast of Maine north and south from the largest city in Maine,
What makes this Studio unique
I moved to Portland 27 years ago from NYC and discovered the perfect place for me to live and work. I ski, I sail, I snowmobile, I hike, I ride balloon tire bikes, I travel the rural mountain roads in a Alfa Romeo and I do it all within minutes of my home. You can too.

Perfect for us!
Everything was ideal for our visit. We had plenty of room, the kitchen was well equipped, we had plenty of room for clothes, etc. Sam was always available and loved his dog! Will stay there again when we return to Portland.
small apartment above a garage.
The space was on the smaller side but never once did it feel too small or cramped. It was just the right amount of space for two travelers. Clean, bright, and it has a coffee maker. I could live in this space, alone. I also appreciated the heat/cooling system and gas range. Sam is helpful and friendly, willing to help with ideas of what to do next in Portland or lend you his camp chairs or anything else you may need I am sure. His dog is beautiful, very friendly and will greet you by walking between your legs and asking for pets.:) Overall my friend and I have no real complaints about this VRBO. The one thing that isn't even really a complaint is that the garage door closing/opening startled me multiple times, but it truly was no big deal and did not happen more than you would expect. There is even horse shoes/stakes set up on site to use, and that was fun too! I would definitely use this vrbo again if I was traveling to this area.
If you are looking for a “home away from home” getaway this is the perfect place. Nicely decorated studio with kitchen, w/d, comfortable bed, tv, private parking and use of grills. 10 minutes to downtown Portland or Thompson Point. Sam is a gracious host who is extremely helpful with tips about the area and local restaurants. It was nice to be able cook some meals at home to save some money on our trip.We enjoyed meeting his beautiful and friendly Burmese Luccia. The price was right too! Thank you for sharing your apartment Sam!
Clean, cozy, convenient. Perfect in all ways.
We could not have asked for a better place to stay or a better host for our first trip to Maine. Sam is gracious and generous, helpful and kind. I never write reviews on anything but Sam deserves the good press. We could go on and on but to say it was a perfect way to spend a week in Maine is not an exaggeration. When, not if, we go back, we'll be staying there again.
Very nice apartment and very well stocked with everything you need.
We had an excellent time exploring Portland and the surrounding area while staying at this property. It's located in a neghnorhood that's quiet and laid back but just a quick drive or an Uber to downtown and it's a 5 minute drive to the airport which is a huge plus. Sam was an excellent host and provided us with a ton of useful info. I would certainly recommend this property and would stay here again.
A very cozy and clean place in a quiet neighborhood. Very easy to get to Portland.
A very attentive owner and the location made for a relaxing and fun vacation. Most of the places we visited were within a 15 minute drive. Lots of shopping and nice restaurants in downtown Portland and Kennebunkport was easy to get and worth a visit.
My Studio Suite resides in a quiet, private residential neighborhood. Literally, 5 minutes from Airport, Turnpike, AMTRAK, Bus, downtown Portland, Island Ferries, Shopping, across the street from Stroudwater Salt Marsh with miles of hiking trails. Multiple ski areas are within 2 hours, surfing is 20 minutes, deep sea everything is 5 minutes away. My Studio comes with a private parking space & a BBQ area with gas and charcoal grills is available too. I also provide two balloon tire single speed bikes.
