The space

This space is a second floor apartment in our home. Please review the picture of the stairs and make sure that you can access this apartment unassisted. It is a complete apartment, meaning with private entrance and has no common spaces with the rest of the home. We own the home, live there and occupy it most of the day.
Off-street parking for 1 automobile is located between the stairway and the garage on the blacktop (PLEASE SEE COVER PHOTO) and on-street parking available. From November 15th to April 15th there is no overnight on-street parking.

Guest access

As guests you have the complete second floor with a private secure access. Bedrooms and other sleeping areas have doors but do not lock. The deck is a great space for morning coffee and relaxing after dinner.

Other things to note

There are individual room heating t-stats for your comfort and in the summer months there is one window air conditioner that serves all rooms. A column standing fan circulates the air from the area with the conditioner. Air conditioning is only a concern when outside temperatures remain HOT for a number of days. Most times the cross ventilation is quite refreshing and is a perfect alternative to the AC, which is really only needed in Maine a few days a year.

We stayed here to explore Portland for a couple of nights and would stay here again. The apartment was very clean and tidy, bigger than expected, and Susan an John have a combination safebox for the key next to the front door for checking in at any time. They provide a parking space, and town is nearby, as well as many shops and food outlets. Good place from which to explore. John welcomed us when we arrived and was really helpful and friendly.

Susan & John's place was a perfect start to our Northeast coast honeymoon. The upstairs apartment was a clean, private, and homey getaway that we enjoyed spending time in. The kitchen amenities were much appreciated with coffee, sugar, private fridge and sink area with dishes provided. A couple nights we also enjoyed a night at home watching cable television and our favorite scheduled shows on FX. I would recommend this spot to anyone heading to Portland, ME!

The place was exactly what I expected and was perfect for us. The kitchen had everything I needed, including coffee! We were very comfortable, the neighborhood was quiet and safe and the location was centrally convenient. I didn't think we would need the window A/C unit, but when the temps hit the high 80s (yes, in late September) I was very glad it was there. The porch was a lovely place to sit outside while my daughter was sleeping inside and we were even able to hear some of the Head and the Heart show which was happening across the water.

Response from Susan & John:
Amy and little one were perfect guests. They were quiet, clean and respectful. The space is above our living quarters and the infrequent patter of little feet was a welcome sound to us. They are always welcome at our place.

Great location with a straight shot to Portland. Clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Good restaurant recommendations which is always helpful...there's Docks, a super seafood place practically around the corner. An excellent value! We would come back.

Susan and John are welcoming hosts who were very easy to get in touch with before check-in and arrival time. The place is in a fine location if you are looking for a crash pad for South Portland and Portland - not great for walking anywhere, but a beautiful neighborhood - safe and quiet. Great deck for an afternoon cocktail or morning paper read. Quick Uber/Lyft ride downtown (about $8). For the price, it was a little dated and light in amenities, but did the trick this time - bring your own shampoo and soap, etc!

Spacious, clean, quiet. Very convenient location to get to downtown Portland, but lots to explore in South Portland as well. We had a great stay!
