Spacious, homely apartment.

We were more than happy with our rental as the apartment was well equipped and comfortable. If you are looking for somewhere slick and modern it may not be for you but, as visitors from the UK, having a traditional New England style property added to the whole experience. We felt as if we were staying in a family home, with numerous little extras that made the stay very comfortable. The bedroom comfort cooling was very efficient and the house was well shaded from the heat. The kitchen had everything we needed (well apart from maybe an electric kettle - sorry a British obsession for tea!) and the living room and dining room had plenty of space for our group of 5 adults. I do feel that the photos do not do the property justice. The area is well served with shops and restaurants and we found the 10-minute walk to the T and the trip to central Boston perfectly managable and straightforward. Having Jamaica Pond at the end of the street was also a bonus. We rented a car for part of the stay and parking was easy. Our location meant it was ideal for getting to see places further afield without having to contend with central Boston traffic. A thoroughly enjoyable stay - thank you.

Boston Trip - August 2013

  • Submitted: Aug 16, 2013

Travelling with my wife and three teenaged children. We found the apartment on first floor of a large older home to be perfect for our purposes. Great acces to public transit. The bus at next corner goes straight to Copley Square area, The T rail transit is about 10 minutes walk in either direction.

Very nice and well kept place fully equipped for whatever you need. Only gripe is the tub/shower does not really drain well. I assume the owner will have this fixed as we left a note when we departed.

Enjoy Boston - a great city!

Wedding Weekend

We came to Boston for our son's wedding, we needed room for six and this worked out perfectly. The house was very clean. It's close to a grocery store and restaurants and the subway is a easy walk for travel to downtown Boston. The neighborhood is very pleasant and safe. All appliances worked and it was a plus to have the use of a washer and dryer. I have already recommended this to our new daughter-in-law's family for when they come to Boston.

Perfect for a family

My husband and I, 2 teenagers and my parents recently stayed here. The photos do not do this home justice. we had 3 bedrooms, a full kitchen, dining room and living room washer/dryer in the basement and every convenience for a relaxing stay. Plenty of towels, bed linens etc. This home is spotless, very nicely decorated with some antique pieces and most important, comfortable and a good space so we were not living on top of each other. There is a nice porch out front, and a smaller deck out back, location is perfect for visiting boston, public transport very good and the bus stop is at the bottom of the block, at the other end of the block. Jamaica Pond, a lovely park. The owner's son lives upstairs and was very quick to answer our questions and any problems we had, a very nice guy. overall a great stay, highly recommend.
