There was room for everyone. We enjoyed the local restaurants, bars, bakeries, & coffee shops. The large kitchen Island and large dining room table were great gathering spots for eating, talking and champagne. Paul was available and helpful. It is a wonderful secluded home right near everything!

It was impeccably clean and organized, with a great amount of attention to detail in decor and function.. Amy was very thoughtful, helpful and anticipated the needs of her guests. The apartment was very spacious for our family of four. Our daughter enjoyed playing with the wonderful toys in the closet. The location was ideal to move about the city, suburbs and even neighboring states (RI, NH & ME). The area was quiet, with beautiful Victorian style homes. The food and service at Ashmont Grill were fabulous, we ate there several times. We enjoyed ice-skating in Rhode Island, skiing in Maine, the Museum of Science, Faneuil Hall, & bowling in Boston, and the Salem Witch Museum in Salem, MA. This was our first trip to Boston and we had a fantastic time! We definitely look forward to another visit and this rental is at the top of our list. Thanks Amy & family for a splendid vacation!

The nicely laid out 2 storey maisonette high up in an old townhouse steps from the Boston Public Garden and Charles Street with its 3 bedrooms up (4th) and communal spaces down (3rd) was fine for 6. We felt relaxed at home amidst its books and art, old wood pieces and leather chairs. The small kitchen was well stocked for food preparation and serving, and the discreet laundry tucked in the single bathroom was a boon. We watched New Years fireworks from the roof garden. All beds were excellent and the shower first rate. No quibbles!
