Happy with the stay

  • 4 of 5
My family and I were looking for something with a bit more character than the normal hotels in the downtown district and this worked out extremely well. The area is dominated by students as it's near several universities or the transportation to them. The two streets that these brownstones are on are gentrifying, but it still funky. My wife is not a fan of cities in general, but was very comfortable here.

Pros:
Truly historic -- the building is 300? 200? years old. My family got a real kick out of staying here.

Landlord is very responsive and really cares about you having a good time.

Green line is really close (Brigham Circle Station, End station is Heath Street). It's the "Green line" because it stops underneath Boston Commons (Park Street Station) which is very close to the start of the Freedom Trail. At Brigham Circle, you can pay cash, and then buy a "Charlie Card" at the larger stations.

The Squealing Pig Pub is around the corner with Chimay on tap. Very awesome! The pizza place nearby looked good, but we didn't try it. I got my coffee at a nearby Dunkin' Donuts for convenience. There is also a nice ice cream shop nearby.

There is a grocery store nearby. The vegetable selection was sub-par in our opinion so we shopped at a Whole Foods that was a few stops up the green line (Symphony Station).

Museum of Fine Arts was nearby and I highly recommend that. There are cabs outside so getting back was a snap.

Cabs are about 15-20 bucks to get to the Faneuil Hall area which we did a couple of times because of weather. Given how expensive parking is, and how convenient the cabs mostly are, I was pretty happy with this option.

Cons:
It's far enough out that we had a bit of a wait to get a cab to go meet some family in the 4-5 time frame (rush hour). Likewise, it's good to have the condo bookmarked on your iPhone to show the non-English speaking cab drivers how to get to the place.

It's a 4 story brownstone with the bottom two floors rented out, and the top two floors for this rental. There is a small set of stairs, enter a the front door to a foyer, then enter this units door and climb a narrow flight of stairs. Not bad at all -- my 3 year old nephew was fine as well as my 75+ mother -- but it could be a problem for some.

The kitchen layout is very awkward. Fine, but it is somewhat annoying.


Overall my family was happy with my choice and we happy we stayed here

Great Location, Great Property, Really Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5
I rented this home for a family trip with my wife and 4 small kids. While the entrance to the house was a bit difficult to handle for the small ones, once in the house is large, with 3 very spacious bedrooms, a nice kitchen/living room with TV to entertain the kids when you are tired after a long day of travelling. You should be aware that the house doesn't have a dining room so the only place to dine is the kitchen top with high chairs, which is not that bad but not the best in the world. The house is located just 2 blocks from a metro station so you are in the city center in no time, and around the house you have many places to walk with the kids, and a supermarket close by. The hostess is very responsive and took care of some problems in a very fast way.

Wonderful Boston Experience

  • 4 of 5
We met our grown kids for a vacation in Boston and stayed in this very unique Brown Stone, there were 5 of us and the accomdations were very comfortable with the two full baths. The owner was very helpful and friendly when we checked in. This is a perfect location since the green line T-train is just around the corner; we got a 7 day pass and rode the train everywhere we went, even to and from the airport. Lots of bars and restaurants close by and a grocery store just two blocks away. We had a wonderful time and would recommend this location for a great Boston experience.
