• Easy walk to downtown or take a taxi or Uber - it's inexpensive and hassle-free!

• Walk (2 minutes) to Eastern Prom where you can sit on the lawn and watch the sailboats and enjoy food from local gourmet foodtrucks.

This is a vintage apartment - nicely restored, and updated. The entire building as well as the small yard area is nonsmoking, and of course guests should be as well.

NEiGHBOrHOOD: Pleasant residential neighborhood very close to the Eastern Prom and East End Beach, and also to two local markets, three fantastic Hill restaurants (Lolita’s, The Front Room, and The Blue Spoon), and the Hilltop Coffee House (all about a 4 minute walk). walking distance to the Old Port and downtown Portland as well.

FOOD/GROCERIES: Walk to the small local markets or hop in your car and grab groceries at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, or Hannaford--all just 5 minutes away. Portland is a foodie town, and it's difficult to find a bad meal here.

ACTIVITIES NEARBY: From your rental, you can hear fog horns, see the moon rise over the bay, and hear the osprey overhead. From the East End, Portland Trails provides a lovely walking trail along the water into downtown Portland. Ferry (or water taxi) over to one of the many islands in Casco Bay to spend the day paddling or walking around, or take the 'mail boat' which stops at a handful of islands and makes a fun day trip. Outlet shopping is 20 minutes away in Freeport – easy on to highway north from the Prom.

BEACHES: East End Beach (5 minutes walk) is located at the waterfront at Eastern Promenade Park. Other local beaches are an easy 15 minute drive to South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, or Scarborough.

REGIONAL ATTRACTIONS: By car, everything in the region is close - In five minutes you can be in the Old Port with its world class restaurants, 10 minutes to Portland Head Light, or easily get on the highway north to the to the Freeport attractions and shops like LL Bean. And if you're flying home at the end of your visit you can be at the airport and through security in about 35 minutes.

RATES: Rates for summer 2017 (July through Sept) are $1675/week, minimum of 4 nights (when less than a week is available), or as arranged with owner. Weekly rentals start on Fridays – If you need a different arrangement, please ask.

NOTE: JUNE SPECIAL: June weeks are $1550 for a 7 day week. Maine is delightful in early season - come enjoy it! Book early for best choice.

More about “the Hill” and Portland –

Munjoy Hill overlooks Portland’s most scenic waterfront, - you can lounge on the large lawn overlooking the water all day, and find food from the various food trucks that station themselves along the Promenade.

The Hill is directly connected to Portland's extensive walking/running/biking trail system, including a beautiful 5-mile oceanside loop. From here you can walk or bike to the beach, numerous parks, and almost everywhere in Portland! The nearby Old Port is known for its cobblestone streets, small boutiques in beautifully refinished brick buildings, the docks where fishing boats still come back home after a day of fishing, and more restaurants per capita than any other city. Portland is considered a foodie's paradise.

The Downtown Arts District is home to galleries, theatre, the symphony, the Maine College of Art, and the renowned Portland Museum of Art. Each month, the First Friday Art Walk draws hundreds of culture-loving Portlanders. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, Portland hosts one of the top-rated Farmers' markets in the country.

Downeast Magazine's recent article 'Cool on the Hill' characterizes this area as the hippest area in Portland. The apartment is steps from the Eastern Promenade park – overlooking Portland’s best section of waterfront, a beautiful lookout onto Casco Bay - and an easy 4 minute walk to several restaurants, Rosemont Market, and Hilltop Coffee. The Old Port and its attractions - including what seems like millions of incredible restaurants, shops, and the ferry to the islands, is at the bottom of the hill – about a 15 minute walk from the house. We’ll be happy to provide some guidance as to restaurants, sailing, ferries, etc., if you like. The number and variety of options can be overwhelming.

Notes:
Great place from which to explore the Portland area.

Not suitable for loud groups/parties, out of consideration for neighbors. Massage available (and facials) right next door at a very small neighborhood spa - Munjoyous.
