We wanted to stay near the center of Boston, but this was just as good ;) The neighborhood was fine for us & being just a few blocks to the T station was convenient. You can also take a ferry taxi which would be nice (we did not do). The apartment was exactly as described. Very clean, super cozy beds, nice linens, owner easy to contact, transaction very smooth & timely. It was my husband, myself & our 2 girls visiting (ages 3 & 7), and it was more than spacious. We did a lot of walking, there is so much to see! There are a few nice playgrounds near that the girls loved & there are also some great views a few block away as well.
