Excellent property; highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful weekend spent on Lee Street. The apartment is adorably offbeat, clean, quiet, and easily accessible. The layout of the apartment is fantastic--plenty of space for storing suitcases and belongings, large kitchen, large bedrooms with comfortable beds, and a nice bathroom with a great shower. We spent most our days and evenings in Boston, but actually wished we had had some extra time we could have just hung out in the apartment!

We took the Orange T line to Boston each day (about a 7-8 minute walk from the apartment, very easy to get to, short ride into Boston proper). We drove in from New Jersey, and easily found a spot to park on the street about a block away from the apartment, and didn't have a need to move the car again during our stay with the ease of public transportation.

We had no problems while staying at the property, so it wasn't necessary to contact Olive during our stay, but she was responsive, helpful, and pleasant in all of our e-mail exchanges.

Great Location! Lovely apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The location and apartment were beautiful. Unfortunately we were visiting during the worst winter ever so parking was a tad difficult, but the area was still lovely. There were extra pillows and blankets available and everything was set up beautifully. My only small complaints were there was no wine bottle opener available in the house, and the wi-fi was very spotty in the master bedroom. Other than that it was a lovely stay. We would definitely stay again if returning to the area!

Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

First time using HomeAway in the US and all went well. Apartment sleeps 6 easily, 5 if not sleeping together. Situated roughly 2.5 blocks from the T makes access to Downtown Boston very easy.

Lock box for keys caused a bit of a problem (it's the lower one) - not easily opened or closed. Beyond that we enjoyed the space and everything as described. Owners were especially helpful in getting our car dug out (we arrived in time for a 2 foot snow fall). Indeed even the neighbors pitched in.

My guests were from Australia where snow is rare so in spite of the amount was a real treat.

Would definitely use again when visiting Boston. Beats a hotel any day.

Exactly as pictured!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, perfect for our needs. Two couples travelling and spending 4 days in Boston. Close to transit, approx 20 minute train ride to downtown. Great little shops within walking distance. Quiet home and neighbourhood, parking on street was great, always found a place to park. Definitely on our list of "will return to" when planning another trip to Boston.

Perfect apartment for a family trip to Boston

  • 5 of 5

Great location, very central, close to downtown or any other area by car.

The apartment is very well equipped with everything you may need, extremely practical and very comfortable. We basically felt at home with all the amenities and proximity to the awesome Franklin Park where we went on foot for our morning runs and also to the main street with all the cafes and stores. A perfect place to start your day and a perfect place to relax after a busy day in town.

Overall, a good value.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We liked the close proximity to the T. The beds are super comfy. We couldn't wait to fall into them at night after exploring Boston. The internet and cable box were really spotty. We had to keep unplugging the box to reset it to watch tv.we did have to ask for extra towels during our stay.
