Private apartment in a 1900 New England Colonial with some modern flair. Located between The West end and Thompson's Point in The Valley neighborhood, home of Salvage BBQ (& live music), Bunker Brewery & The Sea Dogs. Ideal location for those who want to be central to all that Portland has to offer from a local, non touristy perspective.

The space

Cozy, inviting and spacious private apartment:

There is 1 bedroom with a comfy double platform bed, a living/dining area with a sofa bed that opens to a queen with memory foam mattress and 1 bonus room with a new twin bed. So in all there is sleeping space for 5.

The apartment also has new appliances in a fully equipped kitchen if you prefer to forego the AMAZING cuisine of Portland and cook a cozy meal in your apartment. The bathroom has a small claw foot tub/shower combo (so very Maine).

Ample, free on-street parking.

* This is a non-smoking building, strictly enforced.
*Well behaved non-shedding, hypoallergenic dog welcome for an additional $10 per night collected at time of check in. All pets must be pre-approved.

Perfect, quiet location, and short walk to Thompson's Point. This was our second stay in one of this host's spaces and we plan to book here again in the future. Wonderful host. Highly recommend!

Great location!! We were looking for a place close to Thompson Point and this was the perfect walking distance. Easy to get downtown and to the waterfront as well. Comfortable and perfect for our quick night in Portland. Highly recommend!

We spent one night in this small apartment. It is well equipped except for kitchen items, but we managed to cook a simple meal. A bit noisy from road traffic. Nice host who checked us in in person.

Chaning was a great host! No fuss, very welcoming! The place was exactly as advertised and our stay was brief, but very comfortable! We hope to be back sometime soon!

Not bad! A bit small, and where our room was confused us. But Chaning was helpful and friendly.

Chaning's place was exactly as promised and offered great value for a weekend stay in Portland. We'd happily stay there again!

I'm originally from San Francisco, lived many years in and around Boulder Colorado and now live in Portland enjoying "the way life should be" (Maine's motto...and I really can't argue). I have a 24 year old son and a 5 year old daughter whom I adore. Some of my favorite pastimes are learning French & piano, outdoor yoga, breezy bike rides & taking long walks both in nature and cities. I love what I do for work and strive to make each day an adventure. :)
