My husband and I do a lot of vrbo-ing (we enjoy a kitchen for breakfast) and Rachel is amazing to deal with! A lot of the VRBO owners can be unresponsive or difficult to deal with. Not Rachel- I probably asked her a dozen questions before and during our stay. She was always pleasent and responsive. We brought our dog with us and Rachel was very accommodating. She just asked that we were considerate of others in the area when it came to our dog- which is understandable! The apartment is exactly as described. Very close to lots of restaurants. My husband and I walked everywhere (except to the train station, it was cold!). The apartment is on a street that has a bit of a hill which is nice because it gives you a chance to walk back and digest your food. The kitchen was exactly what we needed and all of the furnishings looked pretty new. The bed was even comfortable- not that 50 year old bed that I've seen in a lot of other places with the springs sticking you in the back. If we make it back up to Boston, I would be happy to stay in this place again!

There was something going on in Boston that caused the already high priced hotels to be even higher so we starting looking for an alternative for me and two colleagues. So we ended up booking the boat. Was a fun way to travel and extremely cost effective. The boat is exactly the way you see it in the pictures. Great communication and easy to get on and off of the property and boat. I plan to stay again next time with my family I enjoyed it so much. Although it was cold when we stayed, it was very pleasant on the boat.

                                                                                                      Paul and Lynne have an amazingly historic yet modern home in East Cambrige with all the essentials. We started off our great stay with Paul showing us around the house and letting us know where everything was. He then presented us with a bottle of Chanpagne and gave us his contact information in case we had any further questions. Prior to our stay, both Paul and Lynne were extremely responsive to all of our inquiries and responded within an hour. The house had parking for at least two cars and was literally a five minute walk to the Green T line. The kitchen was extremely modern and well stocked, and there were ample towels and blankets for the entire family to use. We were also able to spread out amongst the various large room and not disturb one another... some of us played a board game while others quietly read by the fireplace. While there are all the modern essentials in the home, it appears that there were pleasantly drastic steps to keep some of the original 1840 touches in the home including the beautiful planked hardwood floors. There are two cute cats that hang out on the porch, but dont come in the house (unless your mother-in-law accidentally leaves the door open). If the weather were warmer during our stay, we would have loved to use more of the outdoor space. A couple small things to take note of: 1) We think one of the outdoor cats may have snuck into the TV room because the couch had fur on it and I had a slight allergic reaction in that room, 2) as our stay was in the beginning of winter and it was very windy, some of the bedrooms were a little drafty at night (but there are lots of blankets in all the closets), and 3) We all had a bit of a fight for hot water during our showers (as we were all getting ready for a wedding at the same time). Overall, a five-star experience and we were very grateful that we stayed in this home. Highly recommended! Thanks again to Paul and Lynne!
