We are two artisans who created a unique duplex in the heart of the Boston (before the south end was cool) and lived there for 28 years before moving out of the city and onto the next project.

j.j. lomartire purchased this apartment in 1983

In 1983, the South End was not what it is now. It's the largest victorian neighborhood in the United States and it was filled with buildings suffering from benign neglect. The late 70', early 80's began the renaissance of the South End and now you can see the results of all of the work that has been done to this neighborhood.

This entire building was a gut rehab, even the first floor was removed and repositioned three feet higher than it had been to allow some natural light into the kitchen. Everything in the unit is custom, from the kitchen cabinets to the lovely quarter sawn white oak wall system.

Boston Brownstone Brimming with Brilliance

We would definitely book this charming apartment for another stay in Boston, it is located in a great position, not far from a great stroll down Boylston street to Boston Common and some great shopping venues and right down the road from a great little pub called the Five Horses great food and atmosphere and a couple of doors from the best pancakes I've had at Charlies Sandwich Shoppe (Banana walnut). Street was quiet and the four poster bed is super comfy - to the point that we didn't miss our own :) JJ and Neal were great, the transaction was super easy and the communication was awesome, if you had concerns (which we didn't) they were only a phone call away. Thanks again guys

We had a wonderful time while staying at this property. It added a memorable element to our stay that we will never forget. It was a great location with plenty of room for a family of 5 (3 of who are teenagers). My children really loved the house especially the camel. The property has way more than you would ever find in a hotel and made us feel right at home. I can not say enough good things about this property all the way down to the nice touches like the board games for the kids. Thanks for offering it for rent we truly enjoyed it.

Our family of four loved staying at JJ and Neal's place in the South End. It is within easy walking distance of Newbury/Boylston, Copley, Boston Common, Fenway Park, Museums, so many great Boston sights.

The apartment is beautiful, well-decorated, and extremely comfortable. We had a wonderful time, and this would be our first choice if/when we make a return trip.

I can't say enough good things about this rental. It is unique and one-of-a-kind, with fabulous and quirky furnishings and finishes. With instructions from the owner, the apartment was easy to access, even though we arrived late at night. The heat wave was in full swing, but the apartment was a clean, cool oasis, complete with a life-sized wooden camel! My kids could not get enough of the camel. Although it may technically be 1 bedroom, the place is huge with several living spaces and sleeping spots. The kitchen was fully loaded. The owners were so nice and responsive. There were so many thoughtful touches. The location was fantastic, just a few blocks from the Prudential Center and public transportation. (Don't rent a car in Boston, it's more of a hassle then it's worth with all the transportation options.) My kids were thrilled that there was a playground about a block away. Although the front room faces the street, we did not appreciate any street noise. This was such an enjoyable place to stay!

The Best Place in Boston

Staying at Neal and Janet's flat is the best reason to come to Boston. We stayed for a week, for a local wedding, and many of our friends came over to see the flat we were raving about. All left agreeing that this is the best kept secret in Boston. Location, location, location, Couldn't be better! After a late flight, we were sitting out back on the lovely patio, and smelled garlic. Mmmmmmmmmm. We only had to walk next door for great food at Anchovies, where we were literally treated like family. Giacomos is 2 doors over but the biggest treasure is Charlies Sandwich Shoppe, We were there every morning (except Sunday because they're closed) and it was the best food and family ever. EVERYONE knows who Neal and Janet are and we were treated like we had lived in the neighborhood for decades. Okay, about the flat. Oh my goodness! This is the coolest, funkiest place ever! You need a camel! Seriously! There is a beautiful carved camel in the living room, along with a sarcophagus. Every time we turned around, we found something else cool and funky!!!!! It was almost as much fun exploring the flat as it was exploring Boston. Perfectly appointed with everything we needed!!!! Blow drier, closet space with hangars, iron, outlets, well-equipped kitchen, plenty of linens. Did I mention clean? Clean, clean, clean!!!! Neal and Janet also had water in the fridge and coffee and tea for the morning. Little touches like glycerin soap in the shower, plenty of tp, paper towels, and Kleenex. A notebook with instructions and helpful tips. Maps and pamphlets. I could go on forever! The bed was so comfy we didn't want to get out of it in the morning. The bathroom is large and roomy and the shower is perfect. We walked around Boston for a week and this is the ideal place to make your home base. A five minute walk from the Back Bay station (take the train to South Station to get to/from the airport) and a 10-20 minute walk to anywhere else. It was our lucky day when we found this flat on Homeaway.com. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Neal and Janet, you made our trip to Boston the best vacation ever. To the rest of you, if you stay somewhere else, it is your loss. This is the best reason to come to Boston!!!!!

Thank you Neal and Janet!!!!
