License#STHR0011152019 Spacious 1 bedroom w/living room, eat-in kitchen and bath in ideal Portland peninsula location, walk to all. situated on the edge of the west end and downtown. 2 blocks from the ocean. Walk everywhere in this central, historic, perfect location. Easy street parking. Simple furnishings, older retro flair. 2nd floor of 3 unit Victorian on dead end, quiet street. Queen bed and futon sleeps up to four. There is no parking but often spaces are available on this dead end street
Please read carefully: This is a well-loved apartment in an 1875 building full of sunlight, with Hardwood floors and tall ceilings, you'll be in a classic Portland "triple decker" Victorian building surrounded by the stunning architecture of portland's historic west end. You can walk anywhere in town within minutes. Basic kitchen and bathroom essentials provided. One queen memory foam bed and one fouton can sleep up to four. Large living space-this is an older apartment with older kitchen and bath-it is simple-not luxurious or modern-but it is clean and in the best location. Please appreciate the value of my space-that it is affordable, clean and large, with a retro flare and in a very desirable neighborhood, walking distance to everything on the peninsula. however, be advised, there is no tv and towels do not match and I have never been to ikea. This is the 2nd floor of a 3 unit and the second floor walk-up has steep steps, consider this if you have mobility issues. One Window a/c unit in bedroom, radiator heat (steam heat=white noise which apparently bothers some) I live below and tenants live on the third floor-you will hear occasional sounds throughout the building from residents and even though it is a quiet street you may still hear people on the street (it is an apartment in a city-after all). There is no parking for air bnb-even though there is a driveway-the spaces belong to tenants...guests parking in the driveway for a few minutes to unload luggage is fine..guests have usually been able to park easily right on my street at no cost. Street parking is free on most streets in the neighborhood-Just read the signs as there are usually 2 nights a month overnight parking is not allowed on certain streets for cleaning. Guests arriving late in the evening may have trouble finding street parking. There is also a $5 daily parking lot on commercial street next to Irving gas station about a 3 minute walk. This is a quiet building and no partying is allowed. The apartment is located on a dead end street off park street on the right called Stetson ct-it is a block away from the landmark historic Victorian mansion on park street and danforth. Additionally, early check-in or late check-out can most likely be accommodated with a $20 fee. That said anyone staying beyond the 11 am check out for whatever circumstances will receive a $20 payment request.. Thanks
Portland's west end is such an amazing neighborhood, wandering through these tree lined streets filled with incredible architecture is one of my favorite pastimes. Smile at everyone out for a stroll and enjoy the beauty and character surrounding you. Rosemont market, oh no cafe, and speckled axe coffee are all staples of the west end. Commercial street is two blocks away and uptown or downtown are both 10 minute walks.
  • My sister and I stayed with Sharon last minute and it was the perfect place for us! Her space is simple and has a lot of historical charm. It’s in a great location- easy to get around and close to everything. Sharon was quick to respond and check in was super easy even when we got into Portland late at night. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Great stay in downtown Portland!!

    Axel2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sharon's place is in the best location in Portland! The house itself is incredibly charming and clean with thoughtful touches such as toiletries and dishware that plenty of other properties omit. If I ever find myself back in Portland I will be sure to plan it around when this property is available. An absolute fantastic value and superior experience! Thank you so much, Sharon!

    This is a newly renovated apartment on the 2nd floor of my building and is above an existing Airbnb unit that has been a great hit for the past 2 years and holds a 4.5 star rating w/ over 300+ reviews! It's in walking distance to everything Portland has to offer! It's an older building and has a lot character!
    As old as the building is, the 2nd floor sags to the left when you first walk in and levels out to the center of the room and the 3rd floor bedrooms are level. We recycle in the entryway hallway, so you will see the bins when you walk in. Parking is as follows, there is parking for 1 vehicle, but we always tell our guests to check the street first, as it’s free parking and typically not an issue finding a spot in the neighborhood.
    It's a safe neighborhood, with the Maine's largest hospital 200 yards up the street and the city's largest park 200 yards down the street.
  • My three friends and I stayed at Nick’s Place for a weekend girls trip to explore Portland! We had a great experience during our stay. This apartment was located in a great spot. It was within walking distance from many great restaurants and coffee shops on Congress Street, it is even right around the corner from the Holy Donut (the highlight of our experience). It is within walking from Commercial Street as well, but a little further. We walked some days but also took a quick cheap uber some days/nights! Overall a great location to stay if you are looking to be right in the heart of Portland! Nick was a great host! The apartment was clean and nicely furnished. The check in/check out process was super easy! We would definitely consider staying with Nick again for a future trip!

    Jillian2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Easy check in and great location. Well worth it.

    Paolo2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hosts and an excellent place to stay! The apartment was clean and easily slept all four of us. The location was an easy walk to almost anywhere in Portland and easy for an Uber to find if you needed one. I highly recommend!

    Andrew2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • Angela was a wonderful host especially when it came to navigating a tricky situation. She responded quickly and was helpful and communicative.

    Aethena2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay! It's close to downtown, close to Tandem bakery/coffee shop and within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants that Portland has to offer. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen is lovely, everything is so clean and self check in is easy with a combo lockset. It also has the cutest little travel iron we've ever seen. The listing is accurate, the spiral staircase is very fun but would not be easy to navigate if one was obese or had had too much to drink, especially at night. It requires a little focus and intention but we loved it! The availability of Netflix was a plus! Great little place!

    Vanessa2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable place, great location, fun space, fantastic shower. Bed was very comfortable.

    C Lee2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Angela's place was very clean & cozy. It's a great location & she has so many nice touches that really make you feel comfortable & at home.

    Sara2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Angela’s place was cute and perfect for what we needed! The parking map was super helpful, as was the binder with all the local suggestions. The shower is great and I loved the spiral staircase - super cute! It was easy to call Lyft whenever we needed a ride and left the car parked in the street with free parking all weekend. Definitely a good spot to stay in Portland!

    Meghan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Angela’s description is exactly right! Port City is within walking distance to a lot of great things to do, see & eat. We love Portland and would definitely stay here again in the future!

    Julie2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Angela's place was great. It was exactly as described so there were no surprises! The apartment was small, but it was a perfect space for our time there. The bathroom was amazing and the bed was super comfortable. The binder that was made was such a thoughtful and helpful touch. I plan to stay here again during the summer months, but even in the winter it was still in such a walkable location. I definitely recommend this place!

    A mix of cozy with modern touches, this just-renovated space is what you've been searching for! Come couples and small families, it's much more spacious than a hotel room and has far more character. We are located near quaint Deering Center, right outside the hustle and bustle of the city; a short walk to UNE graduate campus. We are on the bus line with close walking and biking paths. We've set this space up for you! So, whatever reason brings you to Portland, be our guests!
    The entire apartment is set up for guest to be travel-friendly and convenient. Washer and dryer outside the unit, on the same floor.
  • Clean with plenty of amenities. Easy 10 minute drive to Old Port. Would certainly stay again.

    Hannah2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place. Great location. Amazing price.

    Justin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful trip to Portland and made even better by this wonderful Air BnB! It’s in a great location, about 10 minutes to downtown Portland, very clean, and many amenities including lots of blankets and toiletries. The apartment is great for a couple, friends, or family. It’s very nice to have a full kitchen as well! There was coffee for the Kureig machine, water bottles in the fridge and even candies around the apartment! Thank you for a great trip-would definitely stay here again :)

    Julia2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place was so much more than we expected! They had every little detail covered! We had privacy the whole time and were able to do a load of laundry before we headed back home. A 10$ Uber ride away from Old Port and the downtown area of Portland, and they were quick to answer any questions we had. Thanks guys for an amazing stay!

    Chelsea2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Incredibly clean. Hosts have added many thoughtful touches to make you feel at home. A great place to spend time with those you love

    Ryan2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot for a place to wind down after a busy day. The four of us enjoyed our stay here. We recommend!

    Cuong2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Really incredible spot. The hosts truly thought of every amenity and went above and beyond. Only thing of note is that if you’re a light sleeper, bring earplugs because it’s a thin ceiling. Absolutely no complaints though. Perfect experience.

    Ryan2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean, cosy, extensive amenities, and a wonderful location!

  • Wonderful spot! Very clean and close to lots of shops and dining options.

    Laura2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place in arts district. Walking distance to most destinations in downtown. Tom was a great communicator and the space was great.

    Amanda2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our night in Portland. Tom's studio is in downtown, close to everything. It's a stylish studio with everything we needed.

    Laura2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Tom was a fantastic host with an extremely clean and cozy place to stay! The loft is right in downtown Portland and so close to so many things.

    Matthew2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Toms place is amazing! The bed and sheets were the coziest of any AirBnB I’ve ever stayed in. I’m big on cleanliness and this place was legitimately spotless. There’s a roku tv so you can sign into Netflix which is great. There’s also all of the kitchen tools you could need. The towels were soft and the bathroom was very nice. Location is out of the world!! So close to many amazing restaurants, bars, things to do. We will be back, our stay was amazing!

    Amy2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great find and a great value. My girlfriend and I were in town for a show at the State Theater--this was the perfect place to stay. An easy walk to the theater even in February, it was also close to quick bites/drinks and coffee like Otto Pizza, Empire, the Speckled Ax, and Bow Street Beverage. The loft was modern, spacious, and clean. It had a great vacation feel, even for someone who is in Portland regularly. And don't under estimate the value of parking being included! The lot was close and well lit at night.

    Katie2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully clean place. Up to date with technology. In walking distance to most of the stuff we visited Portland for. Tom was very accommodating. Couldn’t of asked for a nicer stay

    Dave2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect studio for a couple with everything you need. It was clean and we were able to walk pretty much everywhere we wanted to. Everything was spotless. Bed and sheets were so soft and comfy. We will definitely be staying here when we visit again.

    This studio features fun tiny home built-ins like a full-sized Murphy Bed! It's a perfect crash pad for a quick trip into Portland. The apartment comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, linens, A/C, and off-street parking. *** COVID-19 UPDATE *** In accordance with Governor Mills' Executive Order 34 FY 19/20—effective on 4/5/20 at 12:00 PM—no lodging arrangements may be made online. I look forward to hosting you but will be unable to book any guests until at least 4/30/20. Stay safe & be well!
    This tiny space packs a full-size, fold-away Murphy bed! The apartment is on a quiet street close to the train station, bus station, exits to 295, and Congress Street in downtown Portland. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen, towels and bedding, A/C, and off-street parking. Just 1 mile to Congress Square (at High Street) and 2 miles to the Old Port. Dont want to drive? Take a Lyft, Über or cab for less than $10!
    This quiet dead end street on the peninsula is a great place to quickly get away from the crowds and regroup for a night on the town. Our Libbytown neighborhood is right off of 295, which makes for easy access. Drive downtown in minutes or walk to the Old Port in 20 minutes.
  • Super clean and cute place! Great for a couple, or for you and a buddy. It's about a 10 min drive to downtown. There's a really helpful binder of things to do and places to eat, if you want a local's suggestions. Also, the murphy bed is really cozy and comfortable. Highly recommend staying here!

    Dee2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Maddie2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

  • Michelle's place is clean, comfy and located in the heart of Portland. We were able to walk around downtown Portland. And Michelle responded quickly when I had a question. Thank you, Michelle.

    Lisa2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is ADORABLE. I stayed for one night with my sister and would definitely stay here again. Michelle is super helpful and easy to communicate with, the location has a dedicated parking spot, and it’s within walking (or cheap ubering) distance to pretty much anywhere you could want to go. So glad I found this place!

    Jessica2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect for my one-night stay in Portland. It’s a short ride from the airport and within walking distance to both downtown and the Greyhound station. It’s a small, cozy spot for one or two people. The WiFi is strong, too.

    Jerad2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location, super convenient. Easy walk to bustling city center, great restaurants, but quiet and safe - ‘urban retreat’ is excellent description.

    Jennifer2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome space and location! It's tiny but cute, and it's a great starting point to see the city! There's a single room and a small bathroom, but there's a cute sitting area in the room and tons of space to put your luggage.

    Alyxandra2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb’s I’ve stayed at! I work from home and the Internet was very fast, neighborhood and building very quiet, and tons of natural light in the studio that made it a wonderful place to work. The bed was also super comfortable and the pour over coffee was delicious! Would definitely return!

    Caitlyn2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and super clean place! Can't wait to go back!

    William2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • You will appreciate having an all-day parking space, a big help because street parking is limited in central Portland. And, Michelle’s location is a quick stroll to both Congress Street and Old Port!

    Go Boutique on a Budget! The Black Elephant Hostel is a very vibrant and comfortable space with unique decor. We pride ourselves on being super clean, affordable and friendly. Our LOCATION CANNOT BE BEAT! We are one block outside of Old Port and nestled among some of the finest eateries, shopping, and entertainment in Portland. The Buddies Double - This room consists of 1 twin bunk bed, sleeping up to 2 people. This is a small private room and is ideal for a couple or traveling friends.
    Our hostel is a home away from home where you can kick your shoes off and relax on the couch after a long day. Our funky decor and fun vibes will leave you feeling energized and inspired. Don't forget to peruse our guestbook and add your drawing to our chalk wall before you leave!
    The Old Port area is packed with plentiful dining opportunities! We were named the '2018 Restaurant City of the year' by Bon Apetite! Just steps from the hostel's doorway, you'll find everything from early-morning cafés to popular weekend brunch spots and highly rated restaurants where you may find a varying global cuisine for lunch and dinner. There is simply not enough time to explore all that the Portland dining scene has to offer... but it's worth a shot, right?! From lively local Bars and Pubs to craft breweries and distilleries, Portland's nightlife is vibrant, artistic, and varied. Whether it be good drink and conversation at a pub, a night out dancing, a look into some of Portland's own breweries and distilleries, or a more refined cocktail in town to end the day, you are sure to find plenty of options within a short walking distance! Excellent dining and nightlife aside, Portland offers a variety of activities for both lone travelers and families. Year round or seasonal this can be anything from a ride on the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad to a Historical tour via horse and carriage. With Maine College of Art (MECA) nestled at its heart, Portland is overflowing with artistic individuals, culture, and entertainment. From galleries and museums to theatre and concerts, the city has plenty to offer in the way of artistic ventures!
  • The exact hostel Portland needs! Inexpensive and lovely. I will give preference to staying here over anywhere in Portland in the future :)

    Sean2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little hostel, close to tourist attractions and downtown area. It was easy to find overnight parking around the block. Stylish and quaint interior got us really excited and complementary morning coffee left good impressions of this place. Host was really friendly and helpful. I give this place 5 stars!

It was a quiet and relaxing trip away from home. Katrina is very quick to respond to our requests and questions. We loved our stay!

    Lee2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is stylish, spacious, and just a few steps from congress street, one of the main downtown streets. It was a bit cold, but the space heater made a huge difference. 100% recommend staying here if you’re in Portland!

    Riley2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best time in Portland because of this place. It really is a rare find. The tour guide binder made by katrina really helped us find near by attractions. Thank you for hosting us.

    Venkata Sukumar2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

  • super clean and well decorated, with convenient amenities and a personal guidebook to the city available for perusal. the location is in walking distance of some choice restaurants and bars - would 100% come back on our next trip to portland!

    Julia2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • I am so impressed with this place; it was a beautiful space, very close to downtown but also easy to get to any of the main roads out of Portland, and such a great value. I loved having off-street parking and Katrina was very clear and quick with her directions and responses. I would love to stay here again!

    Emily2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Katrina has a lovely space very well located close to the main Portland thoroughfare. The space was clean and cozy; my wife and I enjoyed relaxing there each evening on a cozy couch and very comfortable bed. Katrina was also very responsive and her instructions on accessing the room were very clear. We’ve stayed in several Airbnb’s in Portland and this is definitely our favorite!

    This is a third-floor apartment. Spacious living room and kitchen. Great for relaxing after a long day of touring the city. Full-bath/shower. The bedroom has slanted ceilings, but it is perfect for crashing after a long day of exploring Portland. This is not a hotel. This is a converted apartment in a really cool location at a reasonable price.
    Located in the heart of the west end, our apartment is a hop, skip, and a jump away from hundreds of local restaurants and bars. But at the same time we’re only a five minute walk away from the western promenade.
  • This is my third time staying in Portland, the first time was a hotel and this is my second Airbnb and I've got to give this one the best review for location. If you want a very walkable vacation, stay here. It's very clean, cute and cozy and so conveniently located to entertainment, food and bars whatever time of day you're looking for them.

    Ashley2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy, clean place. Great location, easy check in. All around great experience for a short stay.

    Paul2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The location of this apartment really can’t be beat. Convenient to all that downtown Portland has to offer. As others have noted, the space has some quirks but for a pair of folks under 5’3 it was just fine! We worried some about the one hour parking signs but left our car on the street all day on Saturday without an issue.

    Reann2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for a week trip to Portland. The low ceilings in the bed room did not bother me or my 5'11" boyfriend. Would go back anytime!!

    Emily2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place is centrally located which makes walking or getting on the bus a breeze! Asher was very responsive and the self check in was really easy.

    Katherine2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy, stylish but unpretentious and in great location!

    Argyro2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • There was a bit of miscommunication with the host but he apologized and made up for it by leaving us a bottle of Prosecco which was very nice! Overall a great stay in Portland. Just a quick 20 min walk to the Old Port/Downtown area. Would definitely recommend!!

    Meghan2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, near good food, perfect for a one night stay. We didn’t spend too much time in the apartment but when we did we had everything we needed

  • A great place for a couple or small family/group to spend some time in Portland. Walking distance to a lot of awesome shops and restaurants. The free parking was perfect and very convenient. Extremely clean with an open concept. Will definitely be back!

    Julia2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time staying here. The free parking was hugely helpful, and the apartment is within walking distance to so much. I'd certainly stay here again.

    Brian2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • All i gotta say: What an amazing area! The bed was comfy, the atmosphere was great, and the water was hot! Would definitely stay again. This place is the bee’s knees!! Right down the street, no, like literally right down the street from Congress and the main strip.

    Maggie2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Tom’s place made for a perfect two nights in Portland. The location is amazing and having a parking spot is really helpful. The apartment was clean and the loft bed was a great use of space. Tom was very responsive and accommodating. I would recommend this place! Can’t wait to return to Portland again soon.

    Sherri2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great central location! Very clean and Tom was incredibly responsive.

    Eric2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Light-filled and wonderfully located, Tom's loft was a great home base for Portland adventures. Tom was a great communicator, and facilitated an easy start/end to our stay. And that parking is included is such a bonus! Would definitely stay here again in the future.

    Jim2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very convenient location. Clean space.

    Mark2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed the urban chic of this stylish studio. The location- a 5 minute walk from the art museum and Yes books- was just what we were looking for on our short visit to the city. Everything was spotless, and the bed was really comfortable. Tom was very welcoming and responded immediately to our questions. Thank you, Tom!

  • Stay was great. Daniel was a great host. Would definitely reccomend this spot!

    Korey2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay, very close to downtown. Would definitely rent out again.

    Chad2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and beautiful apartment.

    Brandon2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time for a quick weekend getaway. Daniel was very communicative the whole time and responded back right away when I had a question. Thanks again!

    Remy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing spot.

    Max2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Daniel and Ben don’t live in the area but they are super great at communicating throughout the process. They gave us a bunch of info before and during the whole booking process as well as before and during our stay. The place is a decent distance from everything, although if it’s really cold out in the winter you might want to drive to some of the farther places. The neighborhood is nice and very close to Holy Donut. There is a bunch of information in the form of brochures and pamphlets and Ben and Daniel are very responsive by message if you ever need anything or have any questions. The whole appt is very clean and cozy, the only thing I would change is to maybe have different pillows. The pillows on the bed are pretty hard/dense so if you’re not the type to prefer that type of pillow it could be difficult to get comfortable. (Disclaimer there may be some different extra pillows in the closet , I didn’t check but if there is then disregard this part). Overall Portland is a great city and we hope to be back soon! We plan on trying to stay at Daniel and Bens place next time we are around.

    Anil2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

    The Walker House was built in the mid-1800s as a private home by Henry B. Walker who was wise enough to capitalize on all the clay in the soil in Maine and owned 3 brickyards. Now on The National Register of Historic Places, the house is located just over Portland townline so you’ll enjoy the space, quiet and safety of a family-oriented area with just minutes to the center of town.
  • The place is very warm! We really liked the decoration, everything was well indicated and we had everything we needed! The place was super clean and it offers on-site parking, which we very much appreciated. We would definitely recommend!

    Lou-Anne2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This space was uniquely beautiful, spacious and had everything we needed, Maine books, tv and extra kitchen and bathroom essentials as needed. And was incredibly great for our dog (fenced in yard, extra sheets, toys etc). All the touches really showed Pete wants your stay to be both comfortable and memorable. We would book again in a heartbeat.

    Rucha2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Pete was a wonderful host with excellent communication. The loft was clean and cozy! My friend and I had a great stay and would definitely recommend it.

    Laura2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a thoughtfully curated space full of curiosities and delightful visual touches. Pete is an excellent host!

    Michael2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location and space. Pete was super accommodating and responsive. It terms of amenities he thought of everything.

    Ashley2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolutely charming apartment. The studio is huge and has absolutely everything that a visitor could want or need. We had a very short spur of the moment trip to Portland and felt very lucky to have found an apartment that was pet friendly with a fenced in yard. I will definitely go back to Portland (great little city) and when I do I hope to be able to stay again at this darling apartment.

    Joanne2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Pete's place is the perfect space for a quick stay in Westbrook and AWESOME if you have a dog. The fenced in back yard was fantastic and the loaner chew toys were much appreciated (we loved the artwork, by the way...).

    Brandon2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! Great space, gorgeous decor, smooth communication and check in, and a great big yard completely fenced off that our dogs just loved! Thanks for the stay.

    Beautiful, spacious, 1 bedroom heart of the city urban apartment featuring 12 foot ceilings, high end kitchen and bath, refinished hardwood floors in a location that is absolutely terrific. Amazing City Scape Views! Sleeps 3 : 1 Bedroom with queen bed and there is a Futon in small auxiliary room.
    Although a lot of places are called "great locations" it's truly hard to beat this one. We are next door to two coffee shops two restaurants, around the corner (literally) from one of the best coffee spots in town. 50 feet from a bakery, a well known donut shop, a one minute walk to a movie theatre and less than a minute to the Public Market House. Even a men’s and woman’s hair Salon are less than a half minute walk! Portland's Old Port is two blocks away.
  • Chris’s place is a great spot to enjoy all that downtown Portland has to offer. Just a short walk to many of the restaurants and bars. Apartment was very clean and and nice appointed.

    Cameron2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Chris’s place was a perfect location for our first time to Portland. It is less than a half a mile walk to everywhere we wanted to go and it was a great, centralized home base. Will definitely be back!

    Flannery2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Chris’s place is modern with classic touches. It is in a central location allowing for easy access to many tourist attractions as well as local gems. We used Uber to get around and fares were cheap because of the great location. It’s 2nd floor walk up right downtown, a large bedroom, updated kitchen, and beautiful large widows. Although the windows could use curtains for at night, it did not change my opinion of the place overall. Definitely would recommend!

    Shaunaci2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, would stay again.

    Brandon2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Jordan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, great place to stay! The huge windows were what made us choose this place, and we weren’t disappointed! The view is great and you can walk to so many different shops and restaurants. Loved it!

    Mikala2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    A comfortable, bright room with a spectacular view of the Fore River, in easy walking distance of the Old Port and the Arts District, on a quiet cul-de-sac in the Portland's lovely West End. (Portland City License # STHR-002050-2019)
    As our only guest, you have a comfortable, light, second floor room in our "more than a hundred years old" house. Old Maine charm, wide board floors, great views of the Fore River Estuary and a quiet dead-end street all make this location a great place to stay while you explore Portland and the surrounding areas. We are in walking distance from Portland's Arts District and its charming Old Port. We are also very close to both its major hospitals. Three generations live here. The house is generally quiet and peaceful but on the days when my granddaughter is with us it becomes more boisterous and lively. On those days one can expect to hear the usual sounds one associates with young children. If your plans include sleeping late on quiet mornings please be sure to check with us about the dates to see if they coincide with her visits or not. (We want your stay to be enjoyable!) The room has a queen size bed. There is a natural gas heater in the room so you can keep it comfortable. You would share the upstairs bathroom. There is a rather steep staircase to reach the second floor. (Have a look at the pictures to see it). This can be a challenge with large luggage or those who have difficulty with stairs. We are not a good options for folks with mobility issues.
    The West End is one of the best places to live in Portland. It has tons of historic old houses, with lovely gardens and interesting architecture. It's the perfect place to walk around and take in the city. As you do, you'll find the West End Promenade, with views west as far as the White Mountains on clear days. There are schools, shops, and gourmet and everyday restaurants. You can get a pizza to bring home or sit at an outdoor table as you enjoy a variety of cuisines. It can be noisy at times. During the day you can hear trains and trucks below on Commercial street, jets overhead, and tugboats honking out in the harbor which you can see from my back porch.
  • Wonderful historic home in an amazing location. Check in and communication with host was perfect. The view was amazing, loved it!!

    Maura2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and value. Close to local West end shops and downtown. I received prompt communication checking in and out.

    Ryan2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great view, comfy bed, good communication and a perfect location at an affordable price! Will be staying here again in the future for sure.

    Jean-Daniel2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Marsha’s home is wonderful and a short walk from downtown Portland. Highly recommend!

    Laura2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Loved Marsha’s space. It was exactly as advertised. A lovely, bright, and cheerful room. Just what we needed for our weekend getaway. Highly recommend.

    Laura2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Marsha's directions were very clear on how to locate the key, which door to use and the general rules of the place. The room was very tide, and the unexpected view of the bay was a welcome surprise, would definitely stay here again.

    Alex2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is the coziest and warmest space. Waking up to the sunrise over the water was just the cherry on top of a great room. The area is about a 20 minute walk to downtown restaurants and venues. Marsha and Krista were wonderful hosts that thought of everything :)

    Jenny2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with Marsha - we appreciated the nice touches (e.g., coffee, tea). It was a ~15-20 minute walk to downtown Portland. Check in was easy and Marsha was communicative. The only downside is having to walk through the backyard in the snow and up a tiny staircase (as noted in the listing).

    Well lit, large room with an extra futon (second bed) in a cozy old-fashioned Maine duplex with your own private entry. The queen size bed, plush with 800 (or more) thread count sheets, a down comforter and cozy pillows will prove to be comfortable. The room has a private bath with a tile shower, refrigerator, microwave and coffee/tea. We provide towels, hi-speed wifi and small speakers for music. We are an easy walk to everything, and we offer our driveway for parking.
    (Please read my entire listing as it will answer most, if not, all questions you may have. It will also help you decide if what I have to offer will meet your expectations and needs so you can have an amazing stay here in Portland) Hi, I'm Christine. I'm here to help you have an enjoyable stay at my home. But, also, I have made my Airbnb as self-sufficient as possible in case I'm off doing unpredictable life & mom things. I don't want my busy schedule to hinder any of your plans. As much as I would love to meet all of my guests, I may not be able to. (Do know, I will always be reachable by phone or text and would love to help in any way I can) My place is right in Portland and you can literally walk to most, (if not all) desired locations. It is a two story duplex that I have converted into a home for my family with a designated Airbnb area. To ensure privacy, my family stays in an area that is totally separate and secure from the Airbnb space. I have a dog (Harriet) and she will bark. Even though she is friendly, you will not have direct contact with her. My house is not modern. In fact, it is well over 100 years old. Calling it a "fixer-upper" is a bit harsh, but it does need some special love and attention. As much as I am very serious about making these upgrades happen, it has been a slow process. Take comfort in knowing that I have prioritized the Airbnb space and its the best room in the house! I am proud to have made it into a unique/comfortable/clean and cozy little Spot for my guests. (I intend to use my Airbnb revenue as a means to make such improvements to the rest of my home) I love my neighborhood. Back Bay Grill, Bayside Bowl, Bubba's, (voted best dance club) Isa and American Bayside Grill are primo hot spots within a block of my house. We are a short walk to The Museum of Art, Nickelodeon, the Old Port, (waterfront) Trader Joe's, Whole Foods Market, Deering Oaks Park and some of the nations most highly regarded microbrew pubs. On the downside, there is a resource center a few blocks from my house. You may encounter homeless people who may/may not be under the influence of drugs/alcohol. The area can easily be avoided by foot and/or by car. I provide a map that clearly shows where the resource center is and how to best avoid it. (if you choose) Please take comfort in knowing, I have lived in my neighborhood for 15 years and I feel safe in my home, and I would never have an Airbnb if this were not the case. Also, we are less than 2 minutes off the 295 highway, so traveling north or south of the city will be as easy as it gets with minimal city driving. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MY PLACE: Q: When can I check in or check out? A: I will try to accommodate your desired check-in or check-out, no matter what time it is. Note that early check ins are not always possible if I have a guest leaving that morning, as I need time to have the room cleaned for you. Q: Will I have a key? Can I come and go as I please? And, where do I leave the key when I leave. A: Yes, yes and leave the key in the room.
    Parris street is a little two-way street right in the heart of downtown Portland, in the most diverse area of the state. Online maps measure distances in feet to the most celebrated and award winning restaurants and night spots. We are located just blocks from Portlands highly touted art district with the Portland Museum of Art within ten minutes on foot. My family has lived in the neighborhood for over a decade. We feel safe in our home and have never had an incident where someone even tried to break in.
  • Christine's place was so clean and comfortable! Perfect location to explore, close to so many great restaurants and shops. I'd definitely recommend and stay again in the future!

    Come stay at our perfect home away from home while you explore Portland! The location is to die for - walking distance to all of downtown. Central to beaches & outdoor activities. Recently renovated head to toe. Gorgeous finishes, all new furniture. The only thing that isn't new are the windows because we're in the historic district and they won't let us change them! Think charming old mansions and historical architecture.
    This space is tranquil and convenient. Everything you could need, nothing you don't. It is a small apartment, but well laid out and comfortable. Everything is new as we recently renovated head to toe. The only thing we didn't update are the windows because we're in the historic district and the preserve board won't allow us to change them!
    GREAT neighborhood! We are in the historic district and surrounded by beautiful old homes and brick mansions. We're also right around the corner from Longfellow Square, filled with great restaurants, bars, shops, small live music venues. Longfellow Sq is in the Arts district, home to Portland's best galleries and the Portland Art Museum. We neighbor the Old Port, which is about a 10-15 minute walk from our home. Here are some other landmarks that are helpful... *** About 5 blocks from the Portland Museum of Art and handfuls of galleries. *** Just a couple minutes any direction to great coffee shops, breakfast spots, and my personal favorites, Tandem and Holy Donut. ***Just a couple of blocks South of Deering Oaks Park and a couple of blocks North of the Western Promenade. Both are great parks for walking or watching the sunset. *** Just a couple of blocks from Maine Medical Center and Mercy Hospital. A short 10-15 minute walk to USM and to the 3 grocery stores in Portland (Whole Foods, Hannaford, Trader Joes). ***A short 5 minute walk to the Seadogs Baseball Stadium and 10 minutes to the Civic Center. ***3.7 miles to the closest beach; 7-10 miles to 3 more beaches and Two Lights State Park on the ocean. 4 Miles to Fort Williams Park and Portland Head Light on the ocean. *** 15-20 minute drive to the airport (about $15-20 for a taxi or Uber)

We would definitely stay at Nova's place again, thanks Nova!!!

    Welcome to The Skolfield Inn! ROOM 2: In this room you can relax on the couch with a book or snuggle up in bed to watch Netflix.

With a double vanity, large marble glassed in shower, and original hardwood floors, you will look forward to your own little spa-like oasis. This room also comes with one, off street parking spot (cannot support larger SUVs/trucks).

Skolfield, the single family home was converted to an inn and opened for business in 2019. We are located in the West End, just over a mile southwest of the Old Port in the historic neighborhood known for its elaborate Victorian-era architecture. Our neighborhood offers you the tranquility of the Western Promenade, an 18-acre park offering scenic views and walking paths, in tandem with a host of popular restaurants and cafes, all within easy walking distance. The neighboring Arts District and Old Port offer plenty to explore on foot, including museums, art galleries, theaters, restaurants, shops, and bars. With just four guest rooms, our inn offers a peaceful stay, satisfying social guests or those seeking solace. Your private room is furnished with a queen sized bed, television (no cable, just smart TV with Netflix account), white noise machine, and a reading chair (or couch depending on the room). Off street parking is available, cannot support larger SUVs/trucks, and being competent in reverse is a plus! For those with large vehicles, street parking is readily available in front of the inn from 4pm-10am for overnight guests (outside these hours are hourly restrictions).

    MacKenzie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Katrina made our stay extremely comfortable! She was very easy to communicate with, and provided all of the information in detail for self check-in and check out. The inn is beautiful and clean, with very tasteful touches! We were visiting for a concert at the Cross Center, and were able to have easy transportation to and from in under ten minutes. I would definitely recommend this inn for your stay in Portland!

    Go Boutique on a Budget! The Black Elephant Hostel is a very vibrant and comfortable space with unique decor. We pride ourselves on being super clean, affordable and friendly. Our LOCATION CANNOT BE BEAT! We are one block outside of Old Port and nestled among some of the finest eateries, shopping, and entertainment in Portland. This is a Shared 8 Bed Dorm Room. Each Bed has an outlet and locker to store your valuables. You must be 18 years or older to stay in the dorm.
    Our hostel is a home away from home where you can kick your shoes off and relax on the couch after a long day. Our funky decor and fun vibes will leave you feeling energized and inspired. Don't forget to peruse our guestbook and add your drawing to our chalk wall before you leave!
    The Old Port area is packed with plentiful dining opportunities! We were named the '2018 Restaurant City of the year' by Bon Apetite! Just steps from the hostel's doorway, you'll find everything from early-morning cafés to popular weekend brunch spots and highly rated restaurants where you may find a varying global cuisine for lunch and dinner. There is simply not enough time to explore all that the Portland dining scene has to offer... but it's worth a shot, right?! From lively local Bars and Pubs to craft breweries and distilleries, Portland's nightlife is vibrant, artistic, and varied. Whether it be good drink and conversation at a pub, a night out dancing, a look into some of Portland's own breweries and distilleries, or a more refined cocktail in town to end the day, you are sure to find plenty of options within a short walking distance! Excellent dining and nightlife aside, Portland offers a variety of activities for both lone travelers and families. Year round or seasonal this can be anything from a ride on the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad to a Historical tour via horse and carriage. With Maine College of Art (MECA) nestled at its heart, Portland is overflowing with artistic individuals, culture, and entertainment. From galleries and museums to theatre and concerts, the city has plenty to offer in the way of artistic ventures!
  • Amazing place, friendly people there. Free overnight street parking. It's a few minutes walking to the piers, love the coffee with their own name.

    Andrea2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is the nicest hostel that I've ever stayed in and will probably ever stay in! Heather just rehabbed this space, there is a picture book in the lobby showing the full process, and she did a wonderful job. The decorations are unique, warm and inviting. The common area is clean and well organized. Plenty of full bathrooms to each dormitory. Staff working there are very friendly and helpful. I was worried about the bedrooms being warm in the cold New England winter, but there are individual heating and cooling units in each room that kept the room sufficiently toasty! Not to mention the LOCATION! easy walking to the entire peninsula, but all the best stuff is within several blocks. Would recommend anyone stay here.

    Elizabeth2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • This has to be the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at! Highly recommend you check it out

    Perfect nesting spot for this period of social distancing - walking distance to nature, downtown, grocery (curb pick-up) You will love the location - just park at your reserved spot and forget about it! Great restaurants, bars, coffee shops, museums, Old Port, and Art Districts are all within 20 min walk. Fresh linens, towels, shampoo, french press, an insanely comfortable bed, and warm hospitality are provided, only bring your curious self!
    Private entrance, right next to 1 available parking spot in the West End makes this a gem in this busy and centrally located neighborhood. The bedroom offers a L.L.Bean Lakehouse queen bed with brand new memory foam, a study desk by the windows for you to catch up on emails or plan your Acadia trip, and a comfortable dish chair to get lost in a good book or your kindle. The clothes rack by the bedroom also has a built-on shoe rack to satisfy your fashion needs. The bathroom comes with a shower and readily available bath products. We love tintin (the comic) and decorate the space with our much treasured lacquer tintin artworks.
    The West End is considered downtown Portland and is on the western side of Portland's peninsula. It's worth spending 2 hours walking around to admire beautiful historical houses in this neighborhood, no wonder it was called "one of the best preserved Victorian neighborhoods in the country." Check out 68 High Street, The Gothic House, Brown House, Butler House, Ingraham House, Morrill Mansion and the Minott House.
  • Very friendly and quick responses. Place was ready early and check-in was hassle free. Amazing location with so much to do within walking distance along with many great recommendations posted in the place.

  • Perfect location & a very cute spot!

    Lisa2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great value and great location. Awesome hosts!

    David2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay at this cozy spot in the heart of the West End. Jerome & his on-site manager Richard were extremely responsive in helping me get new batteries to keep the heater in the kitchen going during a below-zero night. Please see my January review for more details about the space.

    Laura2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was amazing and centrally located so we could get out and walk almost everywhere, even with what to a southern seemed like 2 feet of snow!!

    Zac2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Portland! Very good location, close to everything. Would recommend.

    Anthony2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Any place in downtown Portland is max a 20 minute walk away. Nice private entrance and great floor plan. All the appliances are modern and the place was spotless when I came in.

    Stephen2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jerome’s place was as described in a great location, walking distance to lots of restaurants, bars and local attractions. He had a guidebook in the apartment which was helpful and many thoughtful touches like k-cups for the keurig and mini candies. The shower is small but functional and there is quite a bit of noise generated at all hours of the night from the convenience store located right next door. But overall our stay was pleasant and the bed is very comfortable.

    Comfy night's sleep in a charming old Colonial home one block from the Eastern Promenade & sweeping views of Casco Bay on Munjoy Hill in Portland's East End. You’re just a few minutes’ walk from the ocean; the Old Port; Bayside & downtown! The feel of a suburb in the midst of a small city. *You also have the option to book private sessions in an adjacent 2-Person Far Infrared (IR) Sauna, with extra towels & terry robes provided ($15 per 2-hour session). Further details below.
    Comfy & charming accommodations within easy walking distance to the Old Port yet offering more quietude than any other central location. Under 3 minutes' walk to spectacular views of the ocean & Casco Bay along the Eastern Promenade - in addition to panoramic views to the west overlooking the entire peninsula and Back Cove, including the upcoming and interesting Bayside area. The bedroom includes a comfortable, queen-size bed; 42” 1080p HDTV w/WiFi; Netflix & Amazon Prime via the ROKU Player, local over-air TV via antenna, a few of my movies available on the Vudu app on Roku, and Classic VHS & DVD collections in-room; a large room-size fridge, microwave & Keurig coffee maker, along with a selection of tea. *You also have the option to book private sessions in an adjacent 2-Person Far Infrared (IR) Sauna during your stay, with extra towels and terry robes provided ($15 per 2-hour session payable via the Airbnb reservation details page under Additional Services; message me to book a time or if trouble locating the payment link). IR saunas if you aren’t familiar as I was not, differ from conventional saunas and the heating units are designed to heat the body using infrared light and not the entire space like a conventional steam or dry rock sauna. Munjoy Hill is the most desirable neighborhood in the city offering ample open green space and recreational opportunities (tennis, basketball, baseball fields) & nature areas – all along the ocean – in addition to easy walking access to the heart of the city. For the spectacular views, convenience and the quiet of a residential neighborhood with 1800's character and charm, nothing tops the Hill! You're a block from a bus stop in three directions; a two-minute walk to the Prom; three minutes' walk to hill-top restaurants, stores & cafes; seven minutes' walk to touch the ocean water; 10-12 minutes walk to Washington Avenue Restaurant Alley; 15-20 minute walk to Bayside Brewery Row; 25-30 minutes' walk to the heart of the Old Port. While the view from the bottom of the street overlooks the ocean with perfect viewing of sunrise, another spectacular view at the top of the street offers a westward sunset panorama over the bay and peninsula – with views of the Bayside area, Back Cove, Baxter Boulevard - and a surprisingly excellent view to the northwest of snow-capped Mt. Washington in New Hampshire on a clear day!
    You'll be staying in one of the most incredibly situated urban coastal neighborhoods on the Eastern Seaboard, about 200 meters from the Eastern Promenade that runs elevated along the Atlantic Ocean providi spectacular views of Casco Bay and its many islands; and about the same distance to the top of the street for a westerly view of the city from the Top of the World, aka Fort Sumner Park, where on a clear day you can easily see Mount Washington in New Hampshire. There are also three restaurants just a few blocks away; a small market/bakery; two coffee shops; a laundromat; corner store; and some jewelry & art galleries. The neighborhood has lots of surrounding greenery including an adjacent award-winning urban garden and the largest tulip poplar tree in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont literally around the corner from the house. Off-street parking is available, and on-street is generally plentiful in this part of the neighborhood as opposed to most intown locations!
  • Right by the Portland trail by the water, nice walk to nightlife

    Victor2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

    Victor2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Russell2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend, and John is a lovely host as well!

    Marianna2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • John and his place were fantastic. The location is perfect for walking around downtown, while still being in a quiet secluded spot itself. We walked everywhere for 2 days straight, didn't have to get in our car until we left (we see this as a huge plus). The room itself was cozy, clean, packed with amenities. John was ultra-responsive and gave great advice on what to do in town. 10/10 would recommend and return. Thanks, John!

    Jack2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • John’s place was lovely and in a great neighborhood! The room was cozy and quiet for our stay. He was a great host and quick to communicate. I highly recommend his place for your Portland stay!

    Brian2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second time staying! Will definitely be coming back, as the room/upstairs is cozy and comfortable! I especially love the electric blankets, Keurig with full supply of teas and coffee with half/half in the fridge, the bathrobes, and the giant 75-inch tv! The house itself is quiet, as is the street! Location is excellent as well, highly recommend!

    Marianna2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • John’s place was very comfortable and even cuter than the pictures, an amazing deal for the price! The host was communicative and had a great collection of movies and tea. Place was sparkling clean, in a great location, and felt very private despite being in a shared home. Highly recommend staying here for a weekend in Portland!

  • Ken & Moya are great hosts, always available to help guests with a smile on their faces. We had a great time at their place. Amazing view from the living room window to the water, too!

    Helio2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • I would just reiterate what a lot of the other positive reviews said - good location for the price, great food within walking distance (even in December), and great communication. I would add that the bed was really comfortable and the apartment was bigger than what we were expecting based on some of the other reviews.

    Tyler2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • My fiance and I had a lovely stay at this airbnb. It was easy to check in with the lockbox, and we found the apartment to be very cute and clean. The view across the road is so pretty (it looks out onto the water and nearby park). We didn't use the kitchen, as we had family in the area, but it looked nicer than our home kitchen. Ken and Moya left lots of recommendations for places to eat/drink and things to do in the area. They were very communicative hosts from pre-check-in to check-out. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

    Molly2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was so easy and hassle free. Clear instructions from where to park and how to get into apartment. Spotlessly clean, tons of needed items all ready for our use. Made our visit to South Portland so so relaxing! Definitely would stay here again.

    Jennifer2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The binder with local activities and restaurants was super helpful! The place was easy to find and the ubers into town were very inexpensive. The place was stocked with many amenities for our stay.

    Alexa2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the location and the view! The communication with Ken & Moya was super easy and quick. Would absolutely recommend to stay there!

    Maria2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Super great place for a trip into Portland without being too deep in the city that it’s hard to get around. Even though it’s next to a busy road it’s not loud at all. Very nice!

    Daniel2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Monica's place. The location is excellent - easy walk to the Old Port, not far from the East End and all it has to offer, and right next door to a lovely coffee shop. The apartment was spotless, and had a well appointed, functional kitchen which allowed us to bake homemade cookies. Shower was hot and had good water pressure. Bedroom was a bit on the small side, but very cute, and we typically spend most of our time in the living area anyways. Easy check in, with a convenient parking spot right in front of the building. We would not hesitate to return!

    Jill2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Monica, is a fabulous host. The space was exactly as described and like other reviews super clean. Monica also made some great recommendations for food. All in all, a great weekend getaway.

  • That was a great experience, the cleanest apartment on Airbnb. Fully equipped, warm and cozy! Thank you, Monica! Next time in Portland we only stay here.

    Kirill2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Go Boutique on a Budget! The Black Elephant Hostel is a very vibrant and comfortable space with unique decor. We pride ourselves on being super clean, affordable and friendly. Our LOCATION CANNOT BE BEAT! We are one block outside of Old Port and nestled among some of the finest eateries, shopping, and entertainment in Portland. Kristofferson is a small but cozy room with a full size bed. Perfect for a couple or lone traveler.
    Our hostel is a home away from home where you can kick your shoes off and relax on the couch after a long day. Our funky decor and fun vibes will leave you feeling energized and inspired. Don't forget to peruse our guestbook and add your drawing to our chalk wall before you leave!
    The Old Port area is packed with plentiful dining opportunities! We were named the '2018 Restaurant City of the year' by Bon Apetite! Just steps from the hostel's doorway, you'll find everything from early-morning cafés to popular weekend brunch spots and highly rated restaurants where you may find a varying global cuisine for lunch and dinner. There is simply not enough time to explore all that the Portland dining scene has to offer... but it's worth a shot, right?! From lively local Bars and Pubs to craft breweries and distilleries, Portland's nightlife is vibrant, artistic, and varied. Whether it be good drink and conversation at a pub, a night out dancing, a look into some of Portland's own breweries and distilleries, or a more refined cocktail in town to end the day, you are sure to find plenty of options within a short walking distance! Excellent dining and nightlife aside, Portland offers a variety of activities for both lone travelers and families. Year round or seasonal this can be anything from a ride on the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad to a Historical tour via horse and carriage. With Maine College of Art (MECA) nestled at its heart, Portland is overflowing with artistic individuals, culture, and entertainment. From galleries and museums to theatre and concerts, the city has plenty to offer in the way of artistic ventures!
  • One of a kind, very hospitable. Kind and clean. You won’t regret staying here.

    Mason2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The hostel maintains its unique style in every room. The employees are very friendly, helpful and they give great tips for interesting restaurants! The location is a great starting point for a walk through the city.

    Alex2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a great location. I've stayed in the group room before, but this is my first time in a private room. This is a much better option if you don't want to wake up too early. Also, nobody else had to listen to me snoring.

    Jon2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for great price. My default option in Portland now.

    Mark2020-01-23T00:00:00Z

    Ryan2020-01-13T00:00:00Z

    Caroline2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot recommend this place enough. The whole place is colorful and filled with fun designs, the staff is kind and communicative, everything is very clean, the check-in and check-out process was easy, and they serve REALLY good coffee in the morning. Not to mention, the location is perfect for walking to wherever you want to go. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Josette2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect location for anyone wanting to explore the Old Port in Portland. Just foot steps away are as many bars, restaurants, and shops a person could want. We also loved how stylish and clean the space was. We will definitely come back next time we are in Portland!

  • Pamela was very welcoming and everything was just like we expected 10/10 would definitely recommend.

    Jeffrey2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nicely styled, clean and very private! Perfect!

    Darrell2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Jing2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The entire process and stay couldn't have been easier. Pamela did a fantastic job making check in easy and giving you plenty of options to do during your stay. Would stay here again!

    Nate2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! Awesome for a weekend up north.

    Ian2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I visited the area with our fatbikes to check out the trails in the Portland/Freeport area and visit some of our favorite breweries. We didn't want to stay in downtown Portland or worry about overnight parking and this place is in a great location. There's a grocery store nearby and it didn't take long to get into the downtown area for breakfast. We only stayed one night and didn't cook there so I can't comment on the kitchen amenities except that I appreciated the option. The space was very comfortable and warmed up quickly (except the slate floor but there are plenty of rugs). I hope to visit again in the summer and take advantage of the pool and hot tub. Thanks, Pam!

    Stephanie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I stayed two nights here in February and loved every second spent in the loft! Instructions upon arriving are simple and clear. The loft is beautifully decorated and had a true feeling of home. We were visiting the Portland & Freeport areas, and this was in the perfect location between the two. I appreciated the coffee options and the non-dairy creamers that we’re provided. We utilized the fridge and some of the kitchenware, but mainly explored nearby restaurants, although we did appreciate the option to cook. One of the nights we stayed it had snowed about 6 inches over night, and Pamela and her family were nice enough to even brush off my car while they were shoveling!! We utilized the hot tub, which was a great addition to the trip! We HIGHLY recommend the loft to anyone considering!

  • No better place to stay than here. I’ve had many problems with Air Bnb’s and Daniel made Sher that I wouldn’t have another one. Amazing place with great amenities and a better host.

    Andrew2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Daniel’s place offered myself and my friend a beautiful get away in Portland’s west end. The neighborhood is very cute and we were even able to enjoy a couple of the places nearby before the coronavirus shut everything down. The rooms were charming yet stylish and the nice shower was an unexpected bonus. Definitely recommend coming here if you need a great place to stay in Portland or a great homebase to explore the beautiful Maine coast.

    Cameron2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great place! We had a great time and loved how convenient this apartment was. The weather was amazing and we were able to walk to breakfast and things. Daniel was extremely communicative and helpful. Highly recommend staying here and would book again!

    Angela2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • No complaints.

    Sam2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Apartment is sunny, clean, well-furnished, and quiet. Dan is very quick with responses. Area is not the best but Uber/Lyft to downtown is cheap and value is very good given the location

    Isabel2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Daniel’s place was perfect for our winter get away! Thank you!

    Janet2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Daniel and Ben’s place is spacious, beautifully bright and sunny, and conveniently located. I loved that the apartment had all of the amenities you could ever need! It was just a quick ride (or walk) away from tons of great places to eat and explore. Portland has so much to offer even during the off season. Daniel’s communication was extremely quick and his messages were thorough and clear. We were given the opportunity to check out later than stated and we highly appreciated that. My partner and I would love to stay here again! Thank you Daniel and Ben!

    Victoria2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place centrally located and no more than a 5 minute drive from everywhere we visited in Portland. Surplus of breweries, restaurants, and bars nearby, many of them within walking distance. We have a large vehicle so street parking was a bit of a struggle, but as long as you’re okay with walking a block or 2, it’s not really a problem.

    Go Boutique on a Budget! The Black Elephant Hostel is a very vibrant and comfortable space with unique decor. We pride ourselves on being super clean, affordable and friendly. Our LOCATION CANNOT BE BEAT! We are one block outside of Old Port and nestled among some of the finest eateries, shopping, and entertainment in Portland. Hey Ladies is a FEMALE ONLY dorm and consists of a 4 twin bunk beds. It has an en suite bath and sleeps up to 8.
    Our hostel is a home away from home where you can kick your shoes off and relax on the couch after a long day. Our funky decor and fun vibes will leave you feeling energized and inspired. Don't forget to peruse our guestbook and add your drawing to our chalk wall before you leave!
    The Old Port area is packed with plentiful dining opportunities! We were named the '2018 Restaurant City of the year' by Bon Apetite! Just steps from the hostel's doorway, you'll find everything from early-morning cafés to popular weekend brunch spots and highly rated restaurants where you may find a varying global cuisine for lunch and dinner. There is simply not enough time to explore all that the Portland dining scene has to offer... but it's worth a shot, right?! From lively local Bars and Pubs to craft breweries and distilleries, Portland's nightlife is vibrant, artistic, and varied. Whether it be good drink and conversation at a pub, a night out dancing, a look into some of Portland's own breweries and distilleries, or a more refined cocktail in town to end the day, you are sure to find plenty of options within a short walking distance! Excellent dining and nightlife aside, Portland offers a variety of activities for both lone travelers and families. Year round or seasonal this can be anything from a ride on the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad to a Historical tour via horse and carriage. With Maine College of Art (MECA) nestled at its heart, Portland is overflowing with artistic individuals, culture, and entertainment. From galleries and museums to theatre and concerts, the city has plenty to offer in the way of artistic ventures!
  • This is my second time staying here. I was thrilled because I had the whole room to myself. It was a peaceful and wonderful time. My only gripe is the 10:30 check out. On the AirBnB app it’s listed as 11:00. I’m not a morning person so I think they need to correct that!! But overall, the place is located in a good area. It is beautifully maintained.

  • The hostel is absolutely amazing. It's so stylish, comfortable, and well-organized. I didn't cook, but it would have been easy to do so with plenty of fridge space, dishware, and an awesome gas stove. It's also close to some of the best spots in Portland. The food co-op around the corner is awesome for breakfast or a snack.

  • Heather is rad, and so is her place. Do yourself a favor and just stay there. Also, THE 27 DIFFERENT WALLPAPERS, ALSO ALSO, make sure to check out the book she made that tells the origin story of The Black Elephant.

  • Heather's hostel is everything as described and so much more. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and I got great tips on where to go and what to see. Had some really nice housemates as well. I would absolutely stay here again. Thanks again for everything : )

  • This hostel nails convenience, cleanliness and creative charm right smack in Downtown. Perfect for anyone who just needs the basics of shower, sleep, and wifi, but also above and beyond for anyone who could appreciate a kitchen for cooking, the comradery of other guests and their recommendations, and a central locale at a budget price.

  • The Black Elephant was exactly what I was hoping it would be -- a friendly, fun, safe place to stay and keep my things while I was at a conference in Portland. It's even better in real life than it is in the photos...super cool, funky vibe that makes you smile! Great place to stay in Portland, and close to everything!
