Portland, Maine Vacation Rental!

April 19, 2018

The last few months have been busy ones, but more stateside than France-side…. I’ve been getting my new condo in Portland, Maine ready for rentals!


Please message me at bbcportside@gmail.com to inquire about prices and availability!

See all my photos of the condo here.

I purchased this 2-bedroom/1-bathroom (sleeps 4) condo in the very heart of Portland’s Old Port in December 2017. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Old Port from the window seat/day bed overlooking Exchange Street.

My condo is on the 3rd floor (with elevator) of an 1867 building full of character, but the interior was completely redone in 2017. With very high ceilings, brand new appliances and predominantly new furnishings, it’s a mix of modern industrial and cozy. It’s my home most of the year; while not cluttered, it’s equipped with everything you might need for a comfortable stay, whether you’re visiting for business or for pleasure.

Portland is an exciting small city that is quickly becoming a foodie mecca. Check out this link to Maine culinary news and upcoming events! We’re just steps away from many of Portland and New England’s best restaurants:  Eventide (rated in Condé Nast’s Top 100 Restaurants in the World), Honeypaw, Street & Co, Fore Street, Hugo’s, The Holy Donut….
