TERRIFIC CITY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
As has been our custom for the last many years, we again used this pleasant cozy apartment as our Boston pied a terre for January and February. The location is fantastic, and accommodations are perfect. The best restaurants in Boston are within blocks, and there’s jazz and classical music close at hand. We also make sure we drop by SoWa First Fridays nearby on Harrison Ave where a multitude of galleries and artist studios hold a monthly open house. The apartment is well maintained; furnishings are updated regularly. We highly recommend it and the owners Karoline and Todd. Staying here has been a delightful tradition we look forward to each year.

GREAT, SIMPLE PLACE FOR ONE OR TWO PEOPLE

  • 4 of 5
This property was great for our needs. Simple downstairs apartment in an old brick rowhome on the South Side. A nice walk to the bustle of Tremont and not too far to grab the train or bus into anywhere else in the city.

PLEASE BE AWARE: PARKING IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND. It wouldn't stop us from going again, but it's very important that the owner can help you get a permanent spot for your trip. It's not the owner's fault, it's just the nature of parking on the South End.

In the end, a great spot to call home for a short trip to Boston. Thanks Karoline!

GREAT LOCATION, PERFECT FOR COUPLES

  • 5 of 5
We went to Boston for our anniversary weekend. Karoline was an excellent host. Talking to her was like visiting with that favorite aunt, she was able to give us great restaurant reviews. The unit was clean and extremely quiet. The bed is a queen memory foam that was great after walking 6 miles each day. The neighborhood is well situated between multiple bus routes and just around the corner from a Starbucks and the award winning Flour bakery. After walking through the whole city I am so glad we chose this home away in the south end.

CHARMING, COMFY, CLEAN AND QUIET.

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed this basement, walk-out studio apartment. It was the perfect South End location for our long weekend of visiting Boston universities. The apartment was extremely clean and comfortably decorated. Karoline was an excellent and welcoming hostess, recommending neighborhood restaurants and providing tips on getting around. Don't miss El Centro (yummy Mexican); Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe (classic breakfast joint); and Flour (cute coffee shop). Walking distance to the Prudential Tower and Shops. Something that would have helped us and the only thing I would change would be to have a way to drop off our bags before check-in. As it was, we had to choose between paying $70 to leave them at the apartment, or take them to Package Express on the 5th floor of the Greyhound bus terminal (next to South Station) where we paid $5/bag for the entire day, or dragging them around with us, which was not an option. I understand that it's difficult to keep bags in a private home, and the $70 fee is there to discourage people from wanting to do it, but it was definitely a drawback. Don't want to end on a low note, b/c we really enjoyed ourselves. It's a really comfortable, safe and ideally located place for a getaway.

GREAT LOCATION, CLEAN APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
This was my first time using homeaway and I wasn't disappointed. This apartment was in the perfect location, only a block away from the bus downtown, within walking distance to little stores and restaurants and the apartment was very clean. The owner was very nice and extremely helpful in giving ideas of things to do, she was available for questions and assisted when needed.

This was a great stay and I would definitely stay again next time I head to Boston
