About The Owner

My husband's profession has afforded us the opportunity to travel as well as live in different parts of the country. We chose to settle in the Lower Mills community of Boston for the quiet and quaint feeling yet still be a part of the life of Boston. The fact that we have 3 wonderful grandchildren close by had nothing to do with our decision. Being from the South, originally, we have enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and the history behind our area. We have lived in Boston for 25 years and love Boston and New England. I have enjoyed decorating and making our suite a delightful haven for traveling guests and my husband is the consummate friendly tour guide, who will gladly tell you what to be sure and see and how best to get there.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed having Kristi and her family. They were able to enjoy the peak of our annual "turning of the leaves" in New England. The weather was wonderful as I recollect. A beautiful time to be in Boston. There is more history per square mile in Boston than any other place in the country and the trolley tour is a wonderful way to see it all. You are able to get off at any of the places of interest and when you are through seeing the sights, you are able catch a ride with the next frequently, scheduled trolley. A car is not needed because we have such a wonderful transit system with in a short walk from our condo. But if you do have a car, we offer free, off-street parking. We are glad to offer all the comforts of home.

Great Place to Stay with Conveniences of Home!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I enjoyed our stay at the Condo in Dorchester, MA. The unit was clean, well maintained, and had all the amenities of home. Additionally, the location was convenient to the train station and highway exits as we enjoyed and journeyed to various sites in Boston, Cape Cod, and other nearby locations. There are also lots of restaurants to choose from in the Dorchester area. Marsha and Dave are very friendly and we felt very comfortable there. We would definitely stay here again should our journeys take us to Boston, MA again.

Sister's Weekend

Sister's Weekend
  • 5 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Boston in part because it was so nice to come back to such a welcoming, comfortable condo to relax in. Especially after a day of walking miles and miles!

The personal touch of receiving a text message when we landed in Boston was extremely helpful, especially since we got lost.

I will definitely rent again when coming back to Boston!

This is our second time to stay at Dave and Marsha's place. It is the perfect location for a trip to New England. Very comfortable. The beds are fantastic. Apartment is very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days here! Dave and Marsha are wonderful hosts and are available anytime you need them.

Very Confortable Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 very much enjoyed the comfort of this Apartment. My wife even commented that she LOVED the couch in the living room because it was so comfortable. When coming home from a long day of touring Boston, it was a great place to relax. The Condo was clean and well kept and it had everything we needed for our stay. The location was good. We were not completely comfortable just roaming around the neighborhood. But that has more to do with us being from a small Midwest town Vs a big city environment. The Shaw's grocery store nearby was nice and we ate at a restaurant (Gerard's) nearby the first night that we really liked. The walk to the subway is easy and spent most of each day in the city. although we did not call on the owners for much help/advice, when we did they were quick to respond... They recommended Gerard's. The only negative comment I have was about the TV... It was small. Usually this would not have bothered me since I do not watch a lot of TV. But the Packer game was on and watching it on the small TV was kind of a bummer. The nice thing is the condo is equipped with a lot of channels so there is plenty of TV to chose from. If I ever go back to Boston, I will definitely consider and will probably seek out staying in the condo again. It was a great value.
