This listing is for a cozy bedroom and private bath located in a clean, comfortable home in Deering Center of Portland Maine. It is a five mile drive from both the airport and train/bus station and about the same to the Old Port, so very centrally located. The neighborhood is quiet and safe with with coffee shops, local food markets and good restaurants all within walking distance. The bedroom and bathroom are on the first floor of a two story house.

The space

I have a really detailed guest book with faq's that can be emailed once booking is complete. It also has reccomendations for places to go, things to see, places to eat.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the whole downstairs where the rented bedroom and bathroom is. There is a small room upstairs (the orange one) with a bookshelf for borrowing books if desired. There is also a second bathroom that I use upstairs, if needed. The kitchen is clean, with new appliances, and outfitted to cook any kind of meal. It is a chef's kitchen! There is a backyard with a firepit an a ton of green space all around the neighborhood for a nice morning walk or run.

Interaction with guests

I live in the house. But during the summer I am very busy. I will make myself available by cell phone to answer any questions or concerns. I do cook quite a bit in my kitchen. I am a professional chef and sometimes do work at home to prepare for events.

Other things to note

I have a dog that does not have access to the rented rooms. She is extremely friendly and docile. Picture is attached.

Josh is an absolutely lovely guy with whom we spent time and he was warm and full of information about Port;and. We picked his brain for recipes and how to cook different things and where to hike and and. The place is completely adequate and he is very clear and generous about letting guests use the common space. The bed is very comfortable.

I had a great stay at Joshs' place. The location was really convenient to all major hwy's/attractions. The house was kept very clean, and his dog Dora is truly wonderful. The room is a bit small but there's plenty of storage/shelf space. If there were 2 people in the bed, one would be by the wall, although the bed itself is very comfortable. The room is easy to warm up with the space heater on cold nights and it stayed cooler than the rest of the house on warmer days. Josh is very easy to get along with and has great travel advice- especially about the local restaurants! I would definitely stay again.
