Clean, comfortable, convenient ... perfect!
We stayed in this apartment for 10 days just before Halloween with our 3 children. Immediately after moving in, we knew we would be very comfortable - the apartment was extremely clean, including linen, towels, and dinnerware. The beds are comfortable, with quality mattresses. The apartment is well maintained and in great shape - all the appliances work perfectly, the walls and hardwood floor are in mint condition, and the bathroom is very nice as well. There is a sense of attention to detail everywhere in this apartment.
We took the bedroom at the back of the apartment, and let our kids have the other two. The bedrooms are roomy yet cosy. There is ample closet space to put away suitcases and coats, and enough drawers for our 10 days' worth of clothes.
As far as amenities, there is a fantastic playground just down the street, and some convenience stores within walking distance. The orange line is less than 10 mins away (4 stops to downtown Boston) and there is a bus line into Cambridge on the same block as the apartment. If you plan to do some major grocery shopping, there is a Stop n' Shop and a Shaws but they are a bit further off - 15 to 20 mins on foot. We were so well settled in the apartment that we actually took most of our meals there, and ended up going to Shaws quite often.
We chose to rent a car, fortunately parking is not a problem on the street.
Last but not least, the owner lives in the same building and is *GREAT*. He dropped by on the evening of our arrival and gave us some help and advice, and when we needed to extend the parking permit he actually did it for us! He was always reachable, either by phone or email, and checked on us from time to time to see whether we needed anything. This played a big role in making us feel at home.
We do travel quite a bit and have rented houses in the Boston area before. This was clearly one of our best experiences. I warmly recommend this rental - clean, comfortable, convenient, and with a fantastic owner.
