Spacious, modern and clean property close to Boston downtown

This property features two bedroom, one bath and a spacious living and dining room with an updated kitchen. The location is wonderful as it is only minutes from downtown and six miles from Logan Airport. Highly recommend staying here.

Reviewer Comments:
We booked the accomodation because we thought there were two bedrooms and an 'office' that could be used as a bedroom. We arrived to find two bedrooms and a pull-out couch with a sign telling us not to use it. After email contact with the owner, we were
told we could use it. Not very welcoming. The pull out was seriously uncomfortable and my son spent the final night on the floor. Moving the heavy glass topped table to make space for the pull-out is a disaster waiting to happen. There was no hair dryer we
could find. The glasses in the kitchen were unreachable even using the stool. There weren't enough glasses. With a little effort and attention to detail this could be a much much better property.

Reviewer Comments:
ON ARRIVAL AT THIS PROPERTY IT WAS ALL I COULD DO TO LEAVE THE CAR . IT WAS IN A VERY RUNDOWN AREA OF BOSTON AND WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AN AREA I WOULD HAVE CHOSEN TO STAY IN AT ALL . GAINING ACCESS TO THE BUILDING WAS EXTREMLEY DIFFICULT AS THE LOCK BOXES WERE NOT EASY TO USE AND FORTUNATLEY SOMEONE ELSE WAS ALSO ENTERING THE BUILDING SO HELPED US GAIN ACCESS .ENTERING THE APARTMENT I KNEW INSTANLY THAT I DID NOT WANT TO STAY THERE (IT IS DESCRIBED AS A PENTHOUSE APARTMENT ) AND THAT IMMEDIATLEY PAINTS A PICTURE IN YOUR MIND BUT NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH . WE WERE IN BOSTON FOR 4 DAYS 3 DAYS TO LONG BECAUSE OF OUR ACCOMODATION . THE BIGGEST LETDOWN APART FROM THE APARTMENT WAS THE AREA IT WAS IN IT FAIRLY SPOILED OUR EAST COAST TRIP WHEN ADVERTISING THIS ACCOMODATION PLEASE BE TRUTHFUL WITH PEOPLE WE SPENT ALOT OF MONEY ON THIS TRIP AND WOULD NEVER RETURN HERE AGAIN

Reviewer Comments:
The rental unit was in a great location. Easy access to the subway/bus. Felt safe walking to rental from the subway. The unit was clean and roomy. A store for groceries was close by. Large shopping center nearby. Accessing keys was so easy. Got informative emails for days before we arrived at the unit. Also, you got lots of info on the Shank Properties App on your phone. There are lots of steps to get up to the unit, but it is on the 4th floor, so that is expected. View was nice. Would definitely stay there again. The cost was a real plus compared to the hotels in Boston, and you have a full kitchen. Also, the restaurant right next door was very good. Am looking forward to renting that property again. Enjoy a great city at a great rental unit.
