Hello, I am a forty-four year old professional artist and designer. I also teach college level art. I enjoy the company of new people and look forward to meeting you.
We had a fantastic stay with Denise in her beautiful home. she made us feel welcome and offered the full use of the kitchen for meal preparation if we were so inclined to cook. The bed was comfortable and we had our own bathroom. If we ever go back to Portland, we will stay with her again if her place is available. Great location, easy for taxi from airport and since Portland is a very walkable city, the location was perfect. Close to University of New England in one direction and USouth Maine in the other. Wonderful place and host!
I loved staying at Denise's place and wish that I could have stayed longer! One reason I like using Airbnb is that just from chatting with my host, I can often learn a lot about the area where I'm staying. I definitely enjoyed such an opportunity while staying at Denise's house for two nights. Denise is a very friendly, warm hostess who made me feel quite welcome, starting with sharing pizza and wine as I arrived. The bed was comfortable too, and I liked that the house was in a quiet neighborhood. All in all, a great stay and I hope I can make it back to Portland and stay with Denise again sometime.
Denise and her daughter were fantastic hosts! Their house is clean, beautiful and welcoming and full of interesting artwork. the neighborhood is quiet and safe. Easy off-street parking, an adorable and friendly kitty, and a very comfy bed. We were in town to sell at a craft fair in downtown Portland and it was a quick easy drive from the house. Can't wait to stay with Denise again next year. Highly recommended!
Denise was a gracious host and helped make our stay in Portland enjoyable and memorable.
Great place! We stayed with Denise with our 20 month old son. The house is pleasant, Denise and Oliver the cat are great hosts, and the neighborhood was perfect for children. There is even a child-friendly coffee-shop next door (black-cat) with toys etc.
Would definitely stay again!
Denise was a vivacious and quite gracious host - she gave us a heap of delicious restaurant recommendations and things to do. Her home is lovely and the room was great - fabulous pillows!
It was my first experience with Airbnb, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was just fantastic. Denise is such a nice person, she makes you feel like your at home! We stayed for four nights with our 16 old months daughter and it was great. The house is in a nice neighbourhood and is well located.
If you want to visit Portland and Maine and you're not sure about Airbnb, don't wait any longer and go to Denise's place, you won't regret it. We will be back for sure
Had a great stay in Denise's home. She was incredibly friendly, helpful, and flexible. Home / room was clean and cozy and quite convenient to downtown Portland. Would certainly stay here again.
My sister and I stayed for a long weekend and had a fabulous experience. Denise is lovely and gave us lots of great tips on just about anything we asked her! The house is really clean, the beds super comfy and the fox on stilts installation in the living room, a great conversation piece! It's further from the center of town but easily accessible and the neighborhood is quiet, would definitely recommend the place to friends. Thanks!
We stay at Denise's place 3 nights and everything was just absolutely fantastic!!
Denise is a life lover and her positive energy made our staying just perfect.
The place is pretty much to die for; the moment we walked into the door the positive "aura" just pervaded us and made very moments spent in her beautiful home just unforgettable.
Can't wait to be back in portland and share stories with Denise again.
Thank you soooo much!
