Private, cozy & quiet room to rest your head. Conveniently located just off the peninsula, within 2 miles of everything from the Jetport to the Old Port. Located directly between UNE & USM, with easy access to the rest of Maine via I-295 or 95 just a few minutes drive. Whatever your reason for visiting Portland Maine, you're welcome here! I'm always happy to give recommendations for places to get food & drink or any activities that Portland has to offer.

The space

My 1930's New Englander home is kept clean and tidy at all times. Some days the smell of traditional Thai cooking fills the air thanks to Pare, who I love dearly. I have a well groomed, trained and incredibly friendly six-year-old black lab named Phoebe who will relish any and all attention or respect your space depending on whether you are a dog lover or not.

Guest access

My house is your house except for the other two bedrooms and downstairs bathroom. The living & dining room, kitchen, laundry room and den are all accessible to guests.

Interaction with guests

Happy to act as your tour guide, offer you privacy or make new friends! I'm easily adaptable and love meeting new people. Let me know what you prefer and I'll take no offence.

Other things to note

I will try my best to accommodate special requests and I'd like my guests to feel safe & comfortable at all times!

We arrived just before Hollis but met the official hostess Phoebe who made us at home. (Phoebe is a wonderful black lab). Everything was super clean and in a week of travel, by far the most comfortable bed!! Hollis texted me restaurants within walking distance which we went to. We enjoyed our evening and would never hesitate to recommend this location.

Hollis is one of the nicest hosts I've ever met. He made our stay extremely pleasant and made us feel so welcomed. The place was so clean and had so many beautiful details. He really puts an effort to make it this way.

Such a wonderful airbnb! Hollis was SO communicative and awesome and Phoebe was a real treat to hang with and a total queen! The space was stunning and ridiculously clean, the house was inviting, parking was a breeze, and the area was sooo cute. If I ever come back to Portland for a weekend I'll certainly be looking forward to staying here again. Also Hollis gave me the best bagel suggestion (Rose foods) and a small part of me went to heaven, literally this was the best bagel I have ever had. I would rate this airbnb an 11/10!
