Being new to airbnb you may have overlooked the captions that are written under every photo describing the surrounding area. This includes time and distance to the waterfront on Commercial St, Baxter Boulevard walking , biking Back Cove Ocean Inlet paths around Boulevard just a stones throw from the house ( so close can be seen from the house once foliage drops) Eastern prom with incredible views of Casco Bay & great place to picnic a short 5 minute ride as captioned in the photo. Portland is unique in that it has anything you might want within a 10 minute radius, from art, culture , music, shopping, night life, more restaurants and brew pubs than you can count. Hope this helps explain how the pictures and descriptions shown do accurately describe a visit to our neighborhood and the wonderful experiences our guests have had over the last two years. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
