Boston is a city filled with history and culture and features some of the most world renowed hospitals and institutions of higher learning. Our waterfront is busy and beautiful! Boston is often refered to as a 'walkable city' getting you to sites by either foot, train, trolley or subway. The cape and islands are either a short drive, ferry ride or bus ride away. One of our favorites is Martha's vineyard. Maine is an hour away and the outlets in either NH or MA are 45-60 minutes by car. A lot of our visitors like to tour Salem and check out the witch museum and harbor. For the children and adults the Children's Museum, Aquarium and Science Museums are a must!

You have the opportunity to purchase discount tickets to local area attractions. Just ask Cyndi! We also provide Charlie Cards for your first trip on the bus or train. Just replenish what you use for the next guest to get started.

Hi there! I am very sorry that we had to leave so early and miss saying goodbye too. We were up at 3 and out by 4....got home by 10:30 though, and that was priceless. Yes, I did finish. My time was 3:59.23. I was hoping for something faster, but I was new to the coarse and I had some physical issues (cramping, bathroom break, forgot my inhaler so couldn't breath well...etc) I learned a lot of lessons yesterday, and will hopefully have an opportunity to come back and try again. Boy, it was fun though! I wanted to write something in your journal, but just didn't have time to sit down and comse anyting. I want you to know that we really enjoyed our stay at your home though. I hope we left things alright when we left...didn't know exactly what to do about locking the door. We were very comforatalbe. Thanks again Cyndi! Give our best to John and Christopher.

Thank you so much for your hospitality! We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Boston and making your "home" our own for a few days! It was very cozy and so much more than I expected! Also, thank you for accomodating our late arrival into the city! You have been wonderful to us and I will surely recommend you to all of my family and friends.

John and Cyndi were wonderful and friendly. John picked me up at the airport late in the evening and even provided a mini-tour of Boston on our way to the house! The apartment was more than I had expected! The refrigerator and pantry had some food and coffee/tea stocked for our use at no additional charge! The pellet stove kept the room very comfortable, but did require some work to keep it cleaned and filled. However, John was more than willing to assist with this task! We drove into downtown Boston each day during our stay, but passed public transportation opportunities within a reasonable distance from the apartment. Overall this was a wonderful place for 3 adults to stay, but I do not think I would recommend a 4th adult, as the couch is really a loveseat and there are only 2 beds (1 single and 1 queen). I have already started to recommend this apartment to family and friends and will definitely consider staying here again when I find myself in the Boston area again!

an excellent apartment!

I stayed here with my husband and two young children (2 year old and 11 month old) for two weeks while looking for an apartment. Cyndi warned us that the apartment would be a bit small for the four of us but we found it quite roomy with the open layout (we were also used to British sized apartments!).

John and Cyndi were very welcoming and extremely helpful. We had arrived in Boston from overseas just a couple weeks after the student influx and had a very hard time finding an apartment. John and Cyndi kept an eye out for apartments for us and never tired of our constant nagging them for information and advice (is this a good area? where would the nearest grocery store be if we lived in this apartment? etc etc etc). We didn't have a car when we arrived but this was made less burdensome by John and Cyndi providing rides occasionally (we were able to get by walking and using the bus most of the time). We also made use of their airport pickup service.

The apartment itself was clean and well kept. The mini-kitchen was stocked with a few food items and we used the facilities to cook our own meals most evenings. John and Cyndi had even gone to the trouble of stocking the apartment with a few baby items - a pack and play for my son to sleep in, a baby bath tub, a guard rail for the bed for my toddler, a few toddler dishes. The backyard came in very handy with the kids too. My only minor criticism of the apartment is that it has some low hanging pipes (visible in the photos) - not a problem for me but my husband did bang his head a couple times (though he is freakishly tall at 6'4").

Overall we had a wonderful stay during what was potentially one of the most stressful times in our lives. Thank you John and Cyndi.

We slept two adults and a teen in this beautiful rental. The design and layout is small, yet very functional. The owners were attentive, but non intrusive. There are many Boston activities nearby, and also the smaller communities. We felt warm, safe and well cared for! We would be back and would suggest it to others.

I decided to stay here instead of at a hotel while in Boston and was sure glad that I did. This apartment is very well equipped for 2-3 people. The accommodations are beautiful and very comfortable. We used the pellet wood stove one night which was nice. Having free internet, a laundry room and the kitchen were all advantages over staying in a hotel. Cyndi and her husband went above and beyond to make sure that you had all that you needed while at the same time the apartment felt very private. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to others.
