Are you from out of town? Allston is West Boston, a part of the city of Boston. Allston is connected to Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods by Commonwealth Ave., Storrow Drive and the Mass. Pike [90]. As you move from Back Bay to North Allston, or Lower Allston as it is sometimes called, the houses change from traditional brownstone row houses to a mix of 1880 - 1920 Victorian wood houses.

About Richard Rogers

We are your hosts - Richard and Victoria.

We have been traveling together for 18 years, and we have been Boston landlords since 2005. This studio is the top floor of our house - we live downstairs.

Our standards are 'FIRST CLASS and FIVE STAR' and we won't accept less. Since we started doing short term rentals it has become our passion to provide the cleanest, most tastefully furnished, and simply best accommodations available.

In every circumstance we personally guarantee that everything will exceed your expectations. Every detail has been carefully though out and implemented to ensure the best possible stay.

Richard Rogers purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Richard Rogers chose Boston

We do rent quite a few apartments, but this is our only short-term vacation rental in Allston.

We decided to rent our third floor studio short term to have the flexibility to allow our own family to stay there. The short term rentals have been a huge success and we just love doing it. The neighborhood is a hidden gem in Boston - it is just outside of Harvard Square, and a few minutes to Back Bay. Being so close to everything with no traffic noise and only the sounds of birds and crickets amazes most guests, and that's just one of the things we love about this location.

Now, this is not our only short term rental, and we do have other units around town if you want to be in Back Bay, Fenway or the South End - Just ask.

What makes this apartment unique

The studio is very comfortable. Somehow, everyone says it seems like home when they get there. Some guests check in, and don't even leave again until they check out. Others use the location as a central launching pad to explore the city. Being right next to Boston University and a few minutes from the Harvard Business School, as well as a short walk to Harvard Square, the studio is perfect for anyone with short-term plans at one of the universities. The studio is also right by the new Allston branch of the Boston Public Library and features a new Library Park just across North Harvard Street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The studio apartment is quite the hidden gem! It's a great area that is quiet and safe. Walking distance to Harvard stadium/square and we found it easy to get to the train station to catch the train station for the green line. Nearby shops and restaurants are in full effect of diversity.

We found that coming back into the lower Allston area from a busy downtown Boston, was just perfect to unwind.

Highly recommend this place to stay for anybody traveling alone or in two's; for my sister and I found this place very suitable for us and the queen bed comfortable.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed in the studio twice for a month each time and loved it. We're planning our third visit right now! The studio is compact, spotless and delightful. Richard and Victoria have everything perfect for their guests' arrival and respond instantly if you have questions or problems. The area is quiet, but close to everything you need. Highly recommended!

Best part of the trip was 'home'

The studio was exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Absolutely stunning. My friends were visiting from France and started calling the studio 'home' after the first night. They had a hard time locking up the door on their departure day. Their experience in this studio was truly a fantastic one. Thank you! Thank you! So glad I found you

Beyond fantastic accommodations in the Studio

  • 5 of 5
Got a gig at HBS and could not find anything reasonable in Boston or Cambridge. A friend said VRBO and I found the Royal Street Studio right away. Richard and Victoria are great - they live in the same house and keep everything in tip top shape. The garden is beautiful - just the place to have tea in the morning and a beer at night. The neighborhood is quiet and just a few minutes from the Business School so I walked to campus in about 10 minutes every day. Swiss Bakers, yum as well as the Allston Diner for breakfast and Brighton Avenue for dinner - there is a new place to try every night for months. I really enjoyed my stay and if I come back to Boston, I will stay here.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
The listing is exactly as posted in the advertisement. We loved the location and painstaking details that the hosts have included to ensure an enjoyable stay. Our trips to downtown Boston, and the surrounding suburbs were easy and convenient from this location, Even the 90 minute drive to beautiful Newport, Rhode Island was an easy jaunt from this great location. Nice to be able to have our car with easy on-street parking so close to the city. We will never stay in a hotel again while visiting the Boston area. This studio was relaxing, comfortable, spotless, well-appointed and an overall great experience!

PS- Loved the peach tree in the yard!
