Had a great time in Boston over the 4th of July. The apartment is clean with adequate furnishings. Kitchen cook ware could use an upgrade but we didn't make that many meals so it was not a big deal.
The owners, John & Melissa could not have been more gracious and helpful. Be sure to buy a multiple day pass for "the T". It is nearby and you can get anywhere in Boston quite easily. Leave the car at the apartment as parking is expensive and hard to find. Would definitely stay again. We use Home away for all of our travels.
The North End is packed with great Italian restaurants. Chinatown was a disappointment. Seafood and Pubs are plentiful.
