Boston Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Furnished studio, full bath, full sized kitchen, fireplace, queen bed, sleeps 2

An excellent hotel alternative, the unit is situated in Boston's trendiest neighborhood. The South End offers many cafes, boutiques, playgrounds, restaurants/bars. Theater, symphony, museums/art galleries, and beaches are all nearby, most within an easy walk. Also just minutes to Copley/Prudential mall, hospitals, and colleges/ universities with easy access to public transportation and major highways.

Enjoy living in the largest urban Victorian neighborhood in a beautifully detailed apartment. Take advantage of all the amenities of the neighborhood or walk to many of Boston's historic and cultural attractions. Then retreat to your own private space with a romantic fireplace and stained glass windows opening to the private garden.

If you need help deciding where to start, your hosts, long-time Boston residents, will happily provide suggestions for restaurants and attractions.

NOTE: We do not offer parking. However, there is public parking on the street and in nearby garages. There are multiple types of public transportation just outside the apartment. Boston is a very walkable city.

Location Good

Overall, I was disappointed with this apt rental. However, the location was good for area activities. There was a mildew-like smell on arrival. The furniture was mostly shabby. The bed was confining for 2 adults. Perhaps ok for 2 small adults. Definitely would not consider it romantic. I paid for a week, but due to threat of Hurricane Irene, decided to leave the area after only a night's stay. We didn't want to be in a basement apt with threat of flooding. Informed that we wouldn't receive any refund. No views of the area from this rental. No, I would not recommend to anyone.
Owner's Response: The apartment is not in the basement. It has large stained glass windows with a view of the private garden that is right out side of the door. Also, there isn't any mildew in the unit. Therefore, no smell of that nature or other wise. As per news reports, Boston was not going to be affected by the hurricane which I mentioned to guest and it was not. There is a photo of the bed on the listing and the refund policy is clearly stated. In addition, the guest was offered complimentary night stay and discount if she wished to return in the future.

Great studio/garden apartment. Fantastic location in the South End neighborhood and close to the T and bus lines. Nice alternative to standard hotel option. However, listing of amenities should be updated so that patrons know to bring their own items such as bath soap and hair dryer. Other than that, nice, quiet space, access to your own patio/garden area and worked well for a weekend getaway. Owner was easy to work with as well.

Wonderful Time--Perfect Location

What an amazing time my family had in Boston and it had a lot to do with our stay at this property. It was the perfect size for myself, my husband and our 7 month old. The property is only blocks away from one of the main subway stations on Mass. Avenue however, the area this property is in is PERFECT. It is the South End Historic Area which has great restaurants, cutest coffee shops (Flour Bakery is fantastic) and fun bars. The landlords live above this unit and they are a wonderful family very helpful. In fact, we wanted a "grown-ups" night out and Karoline (owner) very kindly arranged her babysitter for us. What a treat.

This cute studio was clean and cozy, perfect for a nice getaway. The owner was friendly and recommended some great restaurants around town. Couldn't have asked for more.

We enjoyed our time in Boston, and the apartment was a good place to call "home" while we were there. It's in a great location - a few blocks from the public transportation system, Walgreens, and various restaurants. We would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Boston - especially if you don't want to rent a car while you're there!
