Not bad if you have a quiet group

  • 1 of 5
During our 3 night stay, 6 of us stayed in this unit. The unit itself was tidy and clean. The decor and finishings were old and in need of remodeling, and with only one bathroom for 6 guests, it was uncomfortable at times. The biggest issue for us was that the owner's son lives in the upstairs unit and has a 6 month old baby who is sensitive to noise. We were kindly informed about this upon our arrival, and were asked to keep quiet. This created a very awkward situation for us, since we were not informed about this ahead of time. To make matters worse, the front door would slam loudly if not closed carefully and we were expected to prevent slamming, which was very difficult for our children to remember. The whole situation is just a recipe for conflict that is certain to be an ongoing problem for guests staying in this unit. For starters, the owners should install a door closer on the front door, and should specify in the unit description that this unit is for QUIET GUESTS ONLY. Not informing people about this need ahead of time is unfair and frustrating for guests who expect the freedom to use the unit for gatherings where people might be socializing (talking and laughing loudly, etc). Fortunately, the other half of our group was in another vacation rental 2 doors down which did not have any such noise restrictions, so we were able to spend most of our time over there.

This unit is well priced and could be suitable for the right type of guest, but I would not stay here again and overall I don't recommend it.

Wonderful victorian house that was perfect for our family stay in Boston area.

  • 5 of 5
We loved this home! It was close to grocery stores, bus and 1/2 hour away from downtown Boston. It was so easy to get around on the bus and the trains from this location. The house was modern and clean with access to washer/dryer. It had all the amenities that we needed for a wonderful visit to Boston. I highly recommend this home for rental when visiting Boston, just remember it's at least 1/2 hour from downtown or Harvard area. Very safe neighborhood and friendly renters.

The authentic Boston experience

  • 5 of 5
As former Bostonians, we were looking for a way to experience city living again - and this apartment was perfect. It reminded us of the various multi-family apartments we lived in over the years. The location is ideal, close enough for easy access to the T and buses, easy walk to restaurants and Whole Foods, yet off the beaten path enough for a quiet night's sleep. Parking was simple and we had little problem driving around to see friends in different neighborhoods around the city. My only minor complaint would be that the mattress in the large bedroom was a little soft and sagging. It might be time for a replacement. We loved it and would use it again.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5
We had our family of five staying at this property for the Marathon. It was as expected. The area is relatively quiet but still within easy reach of downtown and Back Bay. We had a Suburban and parking was no problem. The unit is fairly spacious and comfortable. My only complaint is that when more than two of us took showers about the same time, there wasn't enough hot water. Otherwise, the place worked great for us.

Owner's Response: We are glad Scott and his party enjoyed their visit and accommodations. We appreciate letting us know about the hot water heater. It is a 40 gallon tank, 3years old and is quiet sufficient for up to 6 guests. We adjusted the heating element.

Spring break trip to Boston

  • 5 of 5
Great property, location and value! The owners (Scott and his mother) were very nice people, were very welcoming, and knowledgeable about the area. Would highly recommend this rental for folks looking to experience Boston in a relaxing environment. Excellent proximity to many local attractions. My family (wife and 3 school age kids) all had a great time!
