Perfect accomodations for two people!

My wife and I have used VRBO quite a lot the previous eight years and this efficiency unit was superb in every detail. Check in was easy as the keys had been mailed to us several weeks before the trip along with detailed instructions on how to get there. We took a cab to the apartment that came to $22 from Logan Airport, dropped our things off, and then walked to Whole Foods (two blocks away) to load up on groceries. The location was ideal for us as we ventured out to see the sights of Boston. The Freedom Trail, North End, multiple subway stations, and downtown were all very convenient and walkable! The bed was very comfy and the apartment was outfitted with everything you could possibly need for your stay. This apartment is a bottom floor apartment and, as such, you will hear people walking above you but it was limited to just the daytime hours and wasn't bothersome in any way. Although not particularly hot, we did need to use the air conditioner which is provided by a window unit that is somewhat noisy because the fan motor in the AC squeaks/rattles. However, the noise can be masked because the apartment comes equipped with a white noise machine and another small fan that helps to circulate the air. We thoroughly loved staying in the Beacon Hill area and this apartment allowed us to blend in with the locals. You won't be disappointed should you decide to stay here.

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5
First let me say that we had never used a vacation rental and always stayed in hotels. So we were a little unsure of what to expect and how it would work.
We wanted something more homey than a hotel and in an area that felt more authentic Boston.
This place was exactly what we had hoped! The neighborhood was unbeatable and the place itself was so cute, comfortable and clean and felt homey. It had everything we would have needed to stay for a month even. I loved it. Felt completely comfortable and "at home". I was excited to enjoy the patio....but we hit a few rainy days.

As for the location it was perfect for us. We wanted to be central to walk all over. And we could here. We did the freedom trial and walked all the way to little Italy. Also walked to Fenway for a game, and walked back. (Would suggest cabbing it one way though!)
Like is stated- beacon hill is on a hill. It wasn't too much or anything that was an issue for us. And actually most of downtown is on a slope anyway. But if you're expecting flat smooth sidewalks you're in the wrong place!
Overall it was a wonderful few days for us. Walking the neighborhood at night-with the gas lights shining and people out walking dogs- was so peaceful. We ate close by and went to the market a few blocks away. Staying here made it an extra special memorable trip. We didn't want the feeling and intrusion of a hotel, and this fit every thing we wanted. We got keys early, and walked in on our first night as if we were just coming home. And leaving was just as easy. Not one issue or problem. But we were also provide with names/phone numbers/emails in case of any issues.
Couldn't recommend highly enough!!! It was our first trip alone with out kids and staying here added to how special it was.
