We rented the house with four colleagues because we were attending a conference in Boston. The house was perfect. Conveniently located towards public transportation. Much better than staying in a hotel.

Family Reunion in Brookline Rental an A+++ Experience!

  • 5 of 5
This gorgeous Victorian on a quiet tree-lined street in Brookline was the perfect location for our family reunion. (Family members age 25 - 87 were all equally impressed and pleased.) Plenty of space with room to spread out (the front reading room/library a favorite cozy retreat), a well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar open to the family/TV room, and a formal dining room that sat all. With two architects part of our group, we were pleasantly surprised with the sensitive renovation of this 100+ year old stately home including the family room addition/kitchen remodel. The furnishings, fixtures, artwork, etc all worked together to present a top-notch home-away-from-home experience. The photo's on the advert were true to life and did a good job of showing off the house. (Rest assured the rest of the spaces were on a par with the photo's provided.) The beds were comfy, the bathrooms well appointed, and the thoughtful extras provided by the owners made our stay better than most hotels. The house was spotless and ready for our arrival - the owner met us at the arranged time, gave a quick tour, and checked back later to make sure all was well. A propane grill on the outdoor deck even afforded grilled salmon one evening for a change of pace! Even though the driveway allowed parking for 3-cars, the 4-block walk to the "T" made getting in/out of Boston very convenient.
Be advised the house is 3 stories with lots of stairs - good for spreading out and privacy, not so good for anyone finding stairs problematic. There is a powder room however, on the first level, and full bathrooms on the top two...
Convenient nearby merchants (within 6 blocks): Trader Joe's, CVS + wine/liquor mart, bakeries, library, post office, mom/pop eateries, etc.
We also had several runners in our group of 8, so the nearby running paths/routes along the Emerald Necklace were a big favorite. Thanks to owner Jeff for his running info in the "welcome to our home" basket of maps, tour guides, menus, etc. Like I said, these folks aim to please!
We would definitely recommend this home rental to anyone needing a comfortable setting for family time in an exciting urban location. All the comforts of home with the sites of Boston just a quick "T" ride or drive away. We even walked out the front door to the Gardner Museum (don't miss a lunch at Cafe G) and the Museum of Fine Arts, before taking a leisurely stroll back. We may have to repeat this visit again in the future. Thanks, Nancy and Jeff!

Beautiful home in convenient area

  • 5 of 5
We had three older couples stay in this beautiful home and we all were very comfortable with everything about the home and area. It is very clean, has everything you need regarding kitchen and even is stocked with necessary supplies and even coffee, etc. We had breakfast at home then took the T Metro to Boston or other areas every day. It is just a short walk and you can get anywhere without having a car. Restaurants are nearby but usually we had BBQ at home, more relaxing. I would recommend this home for everyone but those who cannot handle upstairs bedrooms.

A wonderful stay in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, and our guests, all loved the time in this home.

The home was built before 1893, but has been beautifully restored and furnished. It is spacious, with room for three couples to live comfortably. The driveway will easily accommodate two reasonably-sized vehicles. But, a vehicle is not essential, because the house is located within walking distance of restaurants and shopping, as well as the T station which makes all of Boston accessible.

Given the cost of equivalent accommodations in Boston, this house is a very good value.

In a word: perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of eight (two 60-plus adults), one 40-plus mom with three kids (19, 17 and 8), and two 30-plus cousins enjoyed every minute we spent in this house and were truly sorry to leave what felt like our own home after a week's vacation.
There is no way anyone in their right mind could be disappointed with Nancy and Jeff's house. The beautifully renovated and decorated rooms, comfortable and attractive furnishings and generously stocked closets and cabinets, especially in the kitchen, are beyond compare and have completely spoiled us for renting any other house in the future.
In terms of practicalities, the location is great, on a relatively quiet street and near to the Brookline Station T stop on the Green Line. You can walk to shops in Coolidge Corner and Brookline Village; visitors with little kids will find two playgrounds nearby; and there's plenty of off-street parking, if needed.
We would come here again in an instant!
Nancy and Jeff, thank you so much for your hospitality.

Brookline is a small town with a very urban feel, surrounded on 3 sides by the city of Boston. Our neighborhood is made up of single and multi-family homes located close to one-another. There are sidewalks and several parks/playgrounds nearby. Our home offers easy access to all Boston attractions as we are conveniently located within walking distance (0.3 miles) to the Brookline Village 'T' stop (Boston's Mass Transit system). We are also walking distance to many local shops and restaurants.
