We stayed on the first floor of the house. It was clean and nicely furnished. Chris, the owner, lives downstairs and was great about checking in with us to make sure everything was ok. The house is on a quiet residential street but is only 4-5 blocks from the Sullivan Square T station, so for the most part we just parked the car onstreet with the permit provided by Chris and took the T everywhere. There is a convenience store and a couple restaurants within walking distance of the house, but if you want to go to the grocery store, like we did, you have to drive on some fairly confusing streets with lots of construction going on. Overall, this was a great location for our week in Boston, with plenty of room for our family of 5 and a location that was convenient to everything we needed.
