SPACIOUS & COMFORTABLE!

Spacious & Comfortable!
  • 5 of 5
This house rental turned out to be the perfect place for a group of 12! Lots of space to hang out together and space for privacy! Comfortable furniture, fun extras (books, magazines, etc.) and lots of household/kitchen supplies for cooking. Easy access to the T and all that Boston has to offer. We didn't rent or need a car. The listing description was accurate and the place was very clean and well-maintained. Easy to contact house manager who was available for questions and assistance. The "Blarney Stone" bar & restaurant on the corner had great food; there's a supermarket around the corner & fun Asian markets as well. The only thing we couldn't find within walking distance was a coffee shop. Since the police station is next door, there would be occasional noise from the cars, but not very often. We would definitely stay here again.

NICE HOUSE BUT NOT VERY PRIVATE

  • 2 of 5
Overall, the house was fine. It has a ton of sleeping space, so the accommodations work for a large group. The house isn’t far from the t-line which was great for our group, too. However, we did have some interesting events happen at the house.
We arrived on Friday afternoon and were greeted by the Donna, the property manager. Everything with the house seemed fine. It did have an appearance as though someone lived there regularly but that did not bother us too much. In the kitchen, we noticed there was a door that lead to the basement area, which was originally unlocked but became locked during the evening. That Friday night, while we were standing in the kitchen, the door opens up and a stranger, in their pajamas, asks us to keep it down because they had a baby sleeping. We had no idea who this person was! And it also made us very concerned because although we couldn’t get into that person’s living quarters, they could easily enter ours. The whole time we were there we weren’t sure if the people downstairs was sharing the kitchen with us or not, especially because there were so many old foot items in the refrigerator.
Then, the next day, a couple of the people in our group came back to the house for a nap. While sleeping, they hear voices of people in the house. They discover that they property manager was showing the house to some other people. While that’s understandable, we were never notified of this and then we weren’t sure who else would be coming in via the front door code.
On our 3rd night there, a party was going on next door. The music was so loud that it was shaking the walls of the house. We eventually called the property manager, who wanted us to call the police instead of her. We finally convinced her to call them and take care of it. The party finally ended around midnight.
If you need a place to accommodate a large group, this place will do. Just know that the property manager tends to pop in a lot for various reasons. You should also beware of people who rent/live on the bottom floor of the property. Each bedroom has a key and these should be utilized when you leave for the day.

AMAZINGLY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I was just in Boston for my 30th birthday with a group of girlfriends. I'm SO happy that we found this rental. I was in constant contact with Hermina, and Donna was always available if we needed anything at all! The house is HUGE, and we had plenty of room to enjoy ourselves. Even though much of our time was spent out of the house, we were very comfortable...never feeling crowded/on top of each other at any point in the house. With one night of our largest group (6 girls) in the house at one time, we still didn't feel crowded with only one full bath (maybe our group just knew how to work with each other, haha). I just can't get over how perfect it was!! The convenience of the Red Line to get ANYWHERE was exceptional, and Enterprise (about a mile away) picked us up to rent our car for a day trip to the Cape. We're definitely discussing turning this trip into an annual thing, and we will MOST definitely be booking early to stay here again! Thank you so much, again, Hermina and Donna!! =)

This is a great place to stay for ANYONE. The Red Line is just a couple blocks away, making transit very easy, or cab rides were never more than $35 (AFTER tip, which with our group ended up split between 4 or 5 of us...very cheap). I would honestly recommend this property to anyone that wants all the conveniences of the city without the insanely high prices. To be completely honest, getting off the T, we were a little nervous about the area, but once we settled in, we realized there was absolutely NOTHING to fear...especially since the police station is directly behind the house. Looks were definitely deceiving as we walked from the T station.

Also, there are adorable shops along Dorchester. We found some pretty sweet deals on sunglasses and hats, etc at the Dorchester Dollar, and also a little shop called MadRag in the strip mall, next to the liquor store.

Also, the first night, after traveling, we didn't feel up to going downtown, so at Donna's recommendation, we ate at The Blarney Stone. It was DELICIOUS!!! Absolutely recommend eating at least one meal there. There wasn't a single bad entree on the table.

I honestly could have stayed here forever. =)

DIFFICULT, BUT NOT...

  • 4 of 5
The police station is right behind the house, the parking lot for the cop cars runs along the side of the house. SO your safety is there. You have cops for neighbors.

I rented the front part of the house (Apt A) in hopes of using all of it, I was the only one in the house due to a small incident some friends had. I personally just wanted to hang out in the house and not do much. THATS where the poor choice in cable TV that this house has... made my time more difficult. No TV, No TV, NO TV.... except for the local channels. I was channel surfing plenty of times through the night.

GET CABLE TV - even hotels have more selections.

Then the house didn't have a working heating unit to keep the house warm.

I was contact with the young lady that cleans the house several times about small issues, but nothing major, she was great! Very helpful young lady!

AMAZINGLY LARGE HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
The house was very large and easily fit our group of 13 people, with enough beds for everyone. The kitchen was perfect for use and the basement was large enough for group discussions. Everything was clearly labeled and we had easy instructions on how to get there and get into the house. We enjoyed our stay!

VERY GOOD PLACE FOR A FAMILY STAY

  • 4 of 5
Our group of 4 adults and 5 children stayed here for three nights, and had no real complaints with the property. The kitchen was big enough for our needs, and the bedrooms were well appointed. The only downside was not having a second full bathroom, but we were able to work around this.

If you're a family looking for space in a good location in Boston for a reasonable price, you should be very happy here.
