LUXURIOUS HOUSE. 7 MILES/14 MINUTE DRIVE TO BOSTON, 1000 FT TO TRAIN

Melrose House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8-9.

***Calendar is always up to date.***

Beautiful house in quiet, residential neighborhood. Luxury appointments, designer kitchen and upscale furniture throughout, and tiled baths with granite vanities. Large walk-in closets. Fenced in yard and three-car driveway. Air conditioned.

*1st Floor: LARGE luxury kitchen with granite, Jenn Air stainless appliances, and complimentary food staples (sugar, oil, flour, coffee beans & Grind & Brew Cuisinart, etc.). Large Victorian foyer. 20 FT x 20 FT deck off kitchen with gas grill and herb garden. Living room with large sectional couch. Full bath off kitchen w/shower.

*2nd Floor: 3 bedrooms each with a queen bed, laundry (washer & dryer), and full bath w/tub.

*Attic: Finished, carpeted bedroom with a double futon and queen futon.

*Basement: Large finished room with large sectional couch and huge walk in closet.

Convenient/close to Boston: 15 minutes by car. 3 minute walk to commuter rail, 2 minute walk to bus, 15 minute walk (3 minute drive) to Oak Grove MBTA train station (15 minute train ride into Boston). See more information at www.MBTA.com.

Melrose is a safe, quiet, town with beautiful homes. The Victorian downtown/Main St area is 3 blocks away and has a supermarket, drug store, and great restaurants. Melrose is one of the most sought-after towns in MA, and its downtown receives INCREDIBLE praise from visitors to this house.

To keep the cleaning fee low, we ask that tenants assist with 3 loads of laundry in the high-capacity washing machine and dryer before leaving. This way the laundry will not delay the cleaning woman. This simply involves completing the 1st load and leaving it on the bed (no folding required), leaving the 2nd load in the dryer and the 3rd load in the washer. The washing machine has a 30-minute quick cycle setting, thus it will only take an hour.

Check in is after 3:00 pm. Check out is by 11:00 am. Exceptions can be made, but must be confirmed with the owner.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about this home. It was perfect. We had 4 adults and 5 children, with one floating adult. It was well kept, clean, quiet, easy to find, convienent and big! We loved the kitchen and the space. The owner did a fantastic job helping us get around, fix a lightbulb (immediately, I might add!) and more. He was responsive and very helpful. What a great location! It made our trip to Boston just amazing! Thank you!

Great Place to Stay to Visit Boston

  • 5 of 5
I cannot praise this place enough if you are looking for a place to stay close to Boston. Greg is a very responsive owner and goes out of his way to make your stay a good one. It is reasonably priced, within 15-20 minutes from Boston, and fully stocked with housewares, condiments and bedding. We had two families for a total of 12 people and we fit very comfortably. The trains and subways are close if you want public transportation or you can drive into town in about 15-30 minutes depending on traffic. You are close to historic Boston, Salem, Lexington Concord, within 35-45 minutes of nice beaches, and of course very close to historic Fenway park. We did all of this and the July 4th fireworks and Greg helped tremendously with suggestions. The town of Melrose where the house is located is quaint and you can walk to downtown for some nice breakfast and lunch places, if you are taking a day to relax. We highly recommend this place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great house to stay for Boston trip

  • 5 of 5
This house is a great place to stay if you want to visit Boston and surrounding areas. The train station is about 5 blocks away and within easy walking distance. The subway was farther but if you have a car then you can park there for $6 a day and run right into downtown Boston. We also went to Salem, which was about 20 minutes away and, also went to the NBA Hall of Fame which was about an hour and a half away. There is a park with a basketball court one block away. The house itself had plenty of space for the whole family. The back deck was great for sitting out in the morning or in the evening. Melrose was just a few blocks away and had everything you need, groceries, etc. There is also a mall 3 miles down the road that has plenty of stores, eateries, etc. We went to a night game at Fenway and the subway ran late enough to get us back home. The owner, Greg, was very accommodating and was ready to take care of any needs that arose, which were none. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to visit Boston in the future. Thanks Greg!

Great for Boston Marathoners who want to spend a few days enjoying Boston!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is so comfortable and convenient. There are great restaurants within walking distance in the town of Melrose. Getting to Boston on the T couldn't be easier and driving in takes less than 10 minutes. The owner, Greg, was very welcoming and helpful. The house is so well taken care of. The bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen has everything you could need. I was here with extended family to run the Boston marathon. Everyone was happy with the access to the city for sightseeing, shopping, etc. Getting into the city on marathon morning was easy and stress-free. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Charming Home Close to Downtown Boston

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with a group of friends for 5 nights. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood (just a few blocks) off main street in the town of Melrose. The town itself is very welcoming with great restaurants, coffee shops, and a convenient supermarket all within easy walking distance.
The house itself is clean and very well appointed with everything you might need. Having items such as spices, sugar, condiments on hand along with paper towels, detergent, etc. is an added nice touch. The place is nicely furnished and has comfortable beds in all of the four bedrooms. We especially enjoyed the large flat screen TV in the living room with surround sound and a blue ray player. We also spent time outside on the large deck enjoying the afternoon sun. Traveling into downtown Boston was easy on the Orange line which is just a mile down the road or you can take the commuter train (3 blocks away) and transfer onto the Orange line. Greg was available to answer any questions and checked to be sure everything was okay. If you are looking for a clean, well maintained, nicely furnished house convenient to Downtown Boston then I would highly recommend this property.
