Overview

Boston Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Recently renovated, private one bedroom apartment which sits on the border of the great Boston neighborhoods of Roslindale and West Roxbury. Has everything you need to make your short or medium term stay comfortable, convenient, and affordable! Rents by the day, week, and month. Approximately 700 sqft of fully furnished top floor living space including a spacious bedroom, large living room, new bathroom, efficiency kitchen (no oven) and eating area. Private entrance. Access to shared back porch, grilling area and backyard/patio. WiFi and internet cable included.

7 minute walk to the Needham Line commuter rail (note: does not run on weekends) and a short bus ride to the Forest Hills T station (orange line). Takes about 15-20 minutes to get to the heart of Boston via train. 10-15 minutes by car depending on where you are going and, of course, traffic. Bus stop right outside the apartment.

Shops, market and restaurants all within a mile. Harvard Arboretum right up the road! Plenty of on-street parking which does not require a permit (only town in Boston where this is the case). Close to Newton and Brookline.

Owner usually on site to help with anything you may need. This is a great way to spend some time in Boston for a fraction of the cost. You're still in the city but in a more comfortable and quiet 'suburban' environment. Very affordable week and month long rates for people who are here for temporary work, school, or just visiting.

Also can be combined with 3 bedroom apartment rental (Homeaway #3655641) as available for larger groups.

About Damon Darienzo

Hi, I am a thirty something, happy-go-lucky kind of guy with an entrepreneurial spirit and adventurous soul. I've spent a good portion of my life traveling with the military, for jobs and school, and of course for fun! I'm a little more settled these days considering my best buddy is my 4 year old daughter so I figured I'd have to get my 'traveler' fix by giving others a comfortable place to stay in the great area of Boston! Look forward to hosting you!

Damon Darienzo purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Damon Darienzo chose Boston

Great piece of property in the city limits of Boston. City center accessible but the comfort and feel of more suburban living. You won't find a better value deal in Boston!

What makes this apartment unique

My property is one of only a few in the neighborhood/city (Boston areas of West Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, and Roslindale) which is completely private. It is the only area of Boston where on street parking is free, AND available. There are limited hotels in the vicinity so space like this is very hard to find.

I actually should not not write about this apartment, because it was not the one we had paid for. That one was not available, so the owner offered us a larger one (we think it is his own, but unconfirmed) at the same price. It was wonderful!

The neighborhood is very nice, with nice restaurants near by, public transportation not too far away, good parking, a beautiful park a few minutes away, we felt really good.

I would recommend this owner at any time. He was responsive, prompt, gracious, with good recommendations where to go. We'd come back.

Boston on Centre Street, wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5
This review can only be about the area, because our hosts were kind enough to give us their own hime, as the place we had rented was under construction. I don't expect them to give up their lovely place again, what a beauty.
Boston Centre Street just between Robinsdale and West Roxbury is a great area, with public transportation to inner city and parking, yes parking! And WiFi.
We had a fabulous time discovering the park, New England via car, Boston via Transit, eat at Robinsdale Village, the West on Centre, beautiful Holy Name church, walk the neighborhoods, a week full of adventures and relaxation. Thank You.

Comfortable, Clean, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 3 nights. And we'd do it again.

It had the most comfortable bed I've ever had in a vacation rental. The couch was also super comfy and an easy place to relax after a day on the go.

Location was great - At least 3 places to eat within walking distance (less than 1 mile). Several more places to eat within a 2-3 minute drive. Parking was a breeze every time; we parked in front of or next door to the property every time.

Easy to catch the bus across the street or drive 5 minutes to the train station to go into downtown. City Transit was super easy to use.

This place was exactly what we needed for a trip to see Boston.

A great place to end your day of sightseeing!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for 4 nights and it by far exceeded our expectations. From our first contact with the owner to this final review I have nothing but good things to say about this property.

It is located on the top floor and has a functioning kitchen which we used every morning to get our breakfast and make our 1.5 year olds snacks up for the day. The owner went above and beyond making sure we had everything we needed (including a play pen!).

We flew to Boston so we relied on public transit to take us to and from the property. It was a bit of trek each way in and out of the city but my husband and I both agree that it's worth not only the savings compared to downtown but also the value of amenities of the property.

My husband loved the coach and we sat back and relaxed after a full day of touring.

There are restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance (about a 15 min walk) the bus route is right on this street as well.

A wonderful stay in a wonderful city. Thank you for having us and being so accommodating with our little one :)

**Clean, tastefully decorated apartment **

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the property in mid April. It is a top floor apartment in a classic Boston triple decker.
High points: Great location on outskirts of Boston proper. Large living room with comfy leather couch and sky lights. Comfortable bed. Elliptical machine in the bedroom. Owner was on site when we arrived and was incredibly welcoming. There were even extra trial size toiletries in the bathroom - nice touch! Everything was very clean.
Neutral: Efficiency kitchen (microwave, fridge, hot plate). If you plan on cooking huge meals, not ideal. But great for heating up take out, small meals.
Low points: Stairs up to apartment are a bit steep. Shower ceiling is slanted. If you are super tall, this may not work for you.
Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive feedback! I agree that my unit is not necessarily ideal for people much over 6 feet tall (due to shower clearance) and looking to do a lot of cooking. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Clean, Trendy, Comfortable Boston Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were visiting Boston for a conference and decided to extend our stay just outside of the city in this well kept apartment. It had everything we needed! The owner, Damon, was very attentive and the check in and out process was easy and smooth. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't think twice of staying there again if ever in the area. There were plenty of things to do within walking distance and the heart of the city was just a short taxi/train/bus ride away.
