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.

The Space

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 in our third floor condo.
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 Fiance 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 40LBS 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). 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.

Please Note:
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.

Children are always welcome.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Anna and Kit were very accommodating! We had wanted to drop our things off early (ended up not doing that because of timing) but they were willing to help us out!

    Their home was lovely, they were friendly and welcoming, and their dog (Poplar) was delightful.

  • Kit and Anna were great hosts, and the apartment was just as advertised: clean, comfortable, and impossibly tasteful. They were not in when my wife and I arrived, but they provided simple instructions for check-in. It was never difficult to find street parking. Kit and Anna's apartment is an easy walk to many great Portland attractions, restaurants, and shops. Anna gave us directions to a great nearby running trail (Back Cove). And their dog Poplar is handsome and well-behaved. We are glad we chose to stay at Kit and Anna's home and would love to do so again.

  • The room was light and clean. Walking through the living room and kitchen to the bathroom could have been a trial, but, except for our initial talk with Kit, we never saw our hosts. There was a very friendly dog.

    We missed the breakfast part of AirBandB. Neither my wife nor I heard information about it from Kit, but, happily, there was a wonderful coffee shop just up the street.

    July 2014
  • Our stay was great. The room was comfortable, had plenty of space, and great natural light. It was within walking distance of tons of delicious food. The hosts dog was very well behaved (and adorable). We had a great time staying there.

  • Kit and Anna are nice hosts and offer clean and nice space in the location that suited me 100%. The bed (mattress, pillows, duvet) was better than in 5 star hotels! I had a very good sleep in such quiet place and I enjoyed room lit with lot of light on sunny mornings.

  • Kit & Anna's place couldn't have been better. The apartment is beautiful and in a great location, and their dog, Poplar, is just awesome. Portland is a lovely little town with a lot to do and Kit and Anna couldn't have been better hosts, but also with lots of recommendations and directions too. The apartment was great and incredibly comfortable (and we're both a but jealous) and a lovely place to come home to at the end of the day. 10/10 would definitely come back!

  • Anna was a wonderful host, so flexible, open and gracious. She puts people at ease and it truly felt as though we were family friends visiting. Anna and Kit's third floor apartment is top notch... simple, elegant, and modern. Our room was spacious and bright and very clean. Their husky dog is incredibly calm and quiet...just a sweetie! I would highly recommend this accommodation. Oh, and it's in a great location with lots of coffee and food options.

  • Anna was a great host! The location was perfect for us. We walked to the Holiday Inn for our class and were only a few blocks away from Longfellow Square. Anna had great food recommendations. We did barely get to see Anna but we enjoyed talking to her and their dog Poplar is extremely well behaved. Great place!

  • This was my first stay with airbnb, and I was so impressed! The room was beautiful, and Kit and Anna were excellent hosts. They provided towels, a list of recommended spots, and coffee and tea in the morning. We had a great time exploring Portland and were happy to have such a lovely place to come "home" to at the end of the day.

  • Kit & Anna were awesome hosts! Very accommodating and welcoming - would definitely stay with them again.

Hi There! 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. Thank you! Anna & Kit
