Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our large, light, separate 2nd floor studio is airy and modern with a deck overlooking the garden, ocean and sunrise! The best of both worlds - the peace and beauty of Casco Bay, yet 5 minutes to the center of town.

The space
We want to welcome you to what we think is the best view in Portland!

Please, if you’d like to come and stay, introduce yourselves. We are relational people and like to get to know our guests just a little before they come. I'm afraid we are disinclined to rent to those who have no reviews, bio or give any information about themselves - even more so during these difficult pandemic times. Thanks in advance for considering this!

Your room is a large, bright studio, private but next to our house, with a fantastic view of the ocean. There is a fridge, microwave, coffee machine, tea kettle and toaster, for your breakfast making and snacks.

The bed is a comfy queen.

The bathroom is completely newly renovated with a walk in shower and bench fully tiled.

There is cable TV, DVD player and iPod charger/ speaker.

You have your own private deck complete with chairs and table from which you can watch the sunrise each morning. (We are always impressed at the moonrise and the phenomenal light of the moon on the water)

The room is warm and comfortable in Winter and during the summer we usually get a sea breeze. There are also ceiling and floor fans but no air conditioning.

It is a quiet and peaceful space.

Where you’ll be

Portland, Maine, United States

We live in a great tucked-away waterfront neighbourhood with a fantastic view of the water but with easy close access to downtown. We are but a few minutes by car from the center of town. It is a very easy bike ride also. We are also very near Back Cove which has a 4 mile running and biking path around it. The neighbourhood is about 600 yards off I 295 on the east side of town.

We are an Anglo-American family who have lived in Portland for more than 30 years. We also have a home in London, England, so we can travel back and forth and consider ourselves very lucky to have two very different places to call home. Sharing our homes with our guests has transpired to be a great way to do some armchair traveling and meet people from all over. We started using Airbnb for traveling, always preferring to stay somewhere where we could get a more local feel and get the inside scoop on places we were visiting. It is now nice to return the favour in welcoming others. We love Portland - it is a small, hip city with a thriving local arts scene and all in a beautiful setting on the Atlantic ocean with islands, lakes and mountains to explore at any time. We are spoiled for numerous great eateries which we can tell you all about .....when you come! We love to laugh and get to know people a little, whilst at the same time mastering the art of letting people just be. Come check out our little corner of the world!
