Fresh, bright room with 2 beds on the 2nd floor of my 3 bedroom
cape. We've an additional room on the 1st floor, perfect for a small family/group.
Our home is filled with art, music and color, gardens and a patio. Light breakfast included.

The space

Full kitchen available. Our home is yours while staying with us. Cozy wood stove, board games, upright piano, reliable wifi, hair dryer, iron. In the warm months you can enjoy your breakfast on the patio. On occasion I may also be able to pick you up at the airport/ train or bus depot when you arrive in Portland.
We live 4 miles from Portland's downtown district in a quiet neighborhood. If you want to be within walking distance of the city center then our place is not a good fit. Having a car is recommended but certainly not necessary if you are comfortable using public transportation.

Interaction with guests

We are working and or in school for much of the day but will be available to help you navigate our lovely city.

Other things to note

We have a vibrant colorful home filled with art, music and life. Ours is not always neat and orderly but has that lived in charm that says
" Life is for Living". It is our intent to provide a local, friendly, affordable alternative to the traditional options.

Quite simply Caroline was lovely. We felt incredibly welcome in her home despite only being there two short nights. She made sure we had everything we needed and spent time visiting with us. Her home is a charming spot in Portland. We had a car with us so were able to explore all over Portland (including downtown) and Ogunquit beach which was less than an hour away. Great place to stay!

Out of all the Airbnb locations I have stayed, Caroline was by far the most gracious hostess. She went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. It was truly a pleasure to stay with her. The room was very comfortable and quiet, lots of area in her home to have some alone time as well. I am planning another trip in the near future and will be staying with her again. Caroline is a sweet precious lady.

We chose Caroline's home because the reviews were great. Now let me add my voice to the crowd! Not only does Caroline have a darling home cheerfully decorated, but her hospitality makes the stay amazing! We felt like we were staying with a friend. Caroline is warm and relaxed. She clearly loves people and you will always feel welcome and at home. It was truly a delightful experience and my friend and I came home with souls refreshed!

Caroline is a super hostess, who really makes you feel welcome. Loved her cosy wee home, and particularly appreciated the home baking, comfy twin bedroom and use of the kitchen. This is what AirBnB is all about!
