About this listing
Our vintage, hip third floor condo features a spacious bedroom for your stay. Exposed brick and updated kitchen and bathroom gives this gem just the right amount of old and new. Located near Longfellow Square and a 13min walk to the Old Port.
Beautiful Victorian home recently renovated within walking distance to Congress St, Longfellow Sq, Monument Sq, Commercial St, Old Port and lots of great restaurants including Hot Suppa, Pai Men, Petite Jacqueline, as well as numerous antique and thrift/vintage shops.
The building is located on Cumberland Avenue, in the Parkside Neighborhood of Portland. The bedroom is on the third floor in our condo. There is no elevator.
The spacious room includes a Queen bed, down pillows, freshly laundered linens and towels. The room is cleaned after every guest. WIFI available!
The shared bathroom is fully renovated and includes a tub and shower.
We would love to try to accommodate last minute bookings and late arrivals. Contact us to see what we can do!
My husband and I own the Condo and we're usually available to let you in, if not we have a lock box for you to get the keys. Besides using the kitchen to cook and the bathroom in the morning you most likely won’t see much of us. We do have a very well behaved 50lbs Alaskan Klee Kai who is not permitted in the guest room.
PARKING: Street Parking (day and overnight is fine, no residential sticker or in-state plate needed). Parking is very attainable before 6PM, after 6PM in can be more challenging. A friendly reminder to read the signs for street cleaning.
We are Boston transplants to Portand and absolutely love the area, were big into the food scene here and would love to make recommendations. We are happy to help with your planning in any way.
Looking for a fun daytime activity? We suggest renting bikes at Gorham Bike & Ski (693 Congress St, 4 blocks away). Bike to local breweries, the beach, the Eastern Prom to have a picnic, Fort Williams Park to see the most famous light house and catch the food truck with the best Lobster Rolls in Maine.
We only accept reservations from people with completed profiles including an email address and phone number. Don't have an active U.S. phone number? Please let us know how we can best communicate with you.

Kit and Anna are excellent hosts. They responded immediately to any questions we had. Kit helped us find parking in the neighborhood when we arrived, and gave us a lot of great recommendations for dinner near to the apartment. The room was immaculate and quiet. Their apartment is within walking distance to literally everything you'd want to do in Portland. Plus, their dog is extremely friendly!
Kit and Anna were excellent hosts. The room we stayed in was immaculate, and sharing the bathroom was not a problem at all. We were within easy walking distance to the downtown arts District, and many restaurants and bars are within a short walk as well
Our end game was Acadia, but we decided to stay in Portland for a couple nights on the way up. So glad we did, Kit & Anna's beautiful apartment was perfect -- centrally located, spacious and clean. They even had great suggestions for restaurants and things to do around town that were walking distance. This is definitely a great place to stay and would highly recommend.
We had a great experience. They were very accommodating and communication was easy. Although we stayed only one night we got to experience Portland Maine with ease as they are only blocks away from all the foodie restaurants. Highly recommend staying here.
Kit and Anna are both great hosts. There was a sudden change of our arrival time and Kit waited for us even though he was already late for work! Thank you, Kit!
Kit and Anna were great hosts. The flat was beautiful, spacious, clean and well located
Staying with Kit and Anna was an especially great first air bnb experience. Kit and Anna were friendly, gave us great suggestions for the area, and provided a clean, quiet and comfortable space for us. Great location for anyone staying in Portland.

About the Host, Kit & Anna
We are newlyweds living in a funky, fun, bohemian mid-century mod condo. We are Boston transplants to Maine. Over the course of many visits up to Maine from Boston we fell in love with the food community, farmers markets, surfing, the beaches, the small community feel, the art scene, coffee culture and the slower pace. Of course there was also that Flee for All on Saturdays that really had me hooked on the city. We moved into a beautiful historic victorian that was tastefully renovated and sold as luxury condos.
We both work in the restaurant/hospitality industry and love traveling and meeting new people.
We first used airbnb during a trip to San Francisco (we've since stayed at Airbnb's in Morocco, Madrid, Istanbul, Vietnam, NYC) we had such an amazing first experience we vowed that when we left Boston we would be sure to look for a home where we would have the ability to host fellow travelers. Alas, four years later we have that second bedroom! we've enjoyed our guests tremendously and are looking forward to hosting more wonderful people.
