“funky space w/ hardwood floors & a killer kitchen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We were in Portland visiting our son and needed a place that would welcome dogs. Happily, Coralie and Gregory's lovely and spacious apartment was available. Gregory's beautiful mirrors handcrafted from salvaged wood were in almost every room and his quirky but extremely thoughtful touches were everywhere.

The kitchen was outfitted w/ everything we needed to make a Christmas meal (love the counters and the backsplash!) and the beds were very comfortable. So much nicer than a hotel. They also most kindly provided us w/ a 6 ft. Charlie Brown tree for us to decorate for Christmas(!)

We went to the Eastern Promenade nearby every morning for dog walks and stopped at the Hilltop Cafe for coffee on the way. A very friendly place w/ superb muffins. The weather was pretty bad almost the whole time we were there (we arrived in an ice storm) so we didn't walk as much as we normally would have but downtown was an easy 3/4 mile walk away.

Only wish there were treads on the stairs up to the apartment as they were slippery in wet weather.

We had a great time and will be back!

“The Perfect Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

When planning our trip to Portland ME we were looking for a place to stay that was close enough to the old port to walk and not have to drive. This apartment even added free on-street parking (we got a spot right in front).

The apartment was bright and cheerful, everything was clean. The quirky art touches made it feel homey. I'm even going to copy-cat the hooks they have scattered around to see if that gets my family to hang up their coats!

It was great to have a place to ease into our day, drink coffee, eat breakfast - all together without crowding into one person's hotel room.

BONUS = Otto Pizza a couple doors down with great food, fantastic beer on tap - the perfect end of night stop on our way back from downtown.

This very nice apartment was exactly as descriped and we really enjoyed staying here! There is absolutely everything your need and we liked the tiny arty details (such as the picture on the fridge and the blind in the bedroom).
As we did not know that there is a washing machine, we went to a self service laundry near by.....

“Great weekend stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were in town for a family wedding and wanted more space than a hotel could offer. Traveled with my husband and three young children. The apartment was great. Plenty of space. Clean and comfortable. It was very nice to have a home away from home after all the wedding festivities! We never had any trouble with parking. Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Loved the kitchen and all the sunlight! Do not hesitate to stay here. Way better than a hotel!

“Very nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

First, the pictures are exactly how they are on the site. The neighborhood isn't scary and if you have time, you really are within walking distance to everything close to the water.

I would also advise, just make sure you get detailed directions on what floor and level your on. If you coming in late, one word that you may not read correctly will really confuse you. So, take time, get it right the first time and all is smooth.

Bed was comfy, TV just slightly outdated and just needs some shades/blinds in the living room. Otherwise, very bright and very clean.

Short version, i do recommend staying here, just get all details before staying. (directions and where to go in building)

Oh, nice wi-fi and nice cable package.

We are very sorry that these guests left disappointed, especially when they impressed upon us how perfect their accommodations were (the location, the space, the quirkiness and being able to have their DOG !)

With regard to some of our creative alternatives (the shade), most people have commented favorably on the apartment’s ‘quirkiness’ and artsy flavor (see description in FlipKey write-up and other reviews).

It wasn’t until they were minimally charged for their disrespect of the property and contents that they changed their minds and decided to give us a mid-range review.

Considering all of the wonderful and more-than satisfied guests that have passed through this past year, we feel lucky that this is the first time we have come across guests like these - with a disregard for our rental. We wish them the best of luck!

“Great Apartment / Condo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My girlfriends and I stayed for a girls weeked. The apartment is so cute and comfortable. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The property was decorated nicely and we really enjoyed hanging out in the kitchen. It was so much better to have a great place for all of us girls to be together rather than stay in a hotel.We walked to the Old Port to go shopping and grab lunch. It was a short walk and at night we took a $4 cab into town. We were able to park our cars right in front of the apartment no problem.
The only thing I could possibly complain about is the the number of stairs up to the third floor. The weather for us was cold and snowy but we were still able to really enjoy Portland. I plan on returning to this great city and this great apartment. I would highly recommend this property to anybody. The renters were great. Thanks Coralie and Gregory!
