The Yellow Suite kitchenette has a sink, microwave, mini-fridge, dishes, cutlery, and staples. The sitting area's wing back chairs face a wall TV.
The wing table is convenient for dining. French windows look out on the gardens. The suite can be locked from the interior or exterior. We're in the middle of a large garden/wooded lot (very quiet and private) but we're a short walk to restaurants and close to the turnpike-- so a short drive to a lot of places.

The space

The house is an 1830's restored farmhouse near Portland and the turnpike. We've just finished renovations to this special space. It's a mix of a modern kitchen, comfortable TV seating, and antique furniture. The one acre property is set on a hill at end of cul de sac. The patio and firepit face the private gardens and wooded area. Keyless entry for exterior doors.

Guest access

You have shared access to the Great Room, Dining Room, Library, Patio, and grounds. The Great Room contains a modern kitchen, cherry farm table with comfortable seating for 10, seating area around TV, a vintage card table, and a view of the gardens. The dining room cabinet has a service for 10 and the library has books, puzzles and games. The patio has a table, chairs, and loungers.

There are other suites in the house, specifically the Blue/Lavender and Orange.

Interaction with guests

I love calling Southern Maine home and work five minutes away, so am available to answer any questions or help out. I'm also happy to help you find the best beaches and parks, restaurants and other things that make Maine awesome.

Axel offers a secluded area but walking distance to restaurants. The loft is roomy and homey. We loved visiting the Portland area easy access to town and Cape Elizabeth for the Lobster Shack.

Axel was a great host! Room was as described and we had lots of privacy. Located in Westbrook which is only 15 mins from downtown Portland. Two blocks from Maine street with many eating options.

The house was just phenomenal. The kitchen was nice and big and we could use it freely. Same thing with the huge and comfy living room. It was an easy drive to Portland and Old Orchard (20 min). Axel had left us a sheet with his suggestions of what to see or where to eat (I think we left with it... Sorry!!!) and it was very useful. The yellow suite was very clean and we had a lot of space! We had our own bathroom, fridge, microwave, etc. Everything was clean and looks nice. We also had a crush on Axel's dog! The team welcomed us in a nice way :) Thanks again!

We were looking for a place in the Portland area to accommodate a fairly large bachelor party (9 guys) and were having trouble due to our housing needs and a general, somewhat understandable distaste for bachelor parties. Axel was kind enough to open his home to our merry band of misfits and it worked out great (hopefully mutually so). The house is an old farmhouse that Axel has completely updated on the inside with multiple self-contained suites and a huge kitchen and living room where everyone can hang out. It's also only 15 minutes from downtown Portland. I will definitely stay here again the next time I need a place to crash in the Portland area!
