Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a great location. We never rented a car. There were 6 in our group-with three children ages 11-14. We were able to catch a bus in front of the condo and easily get to the subway station or downtown. The deck was very nice and we were able to sit outside most evenings after a busy day of sightseeing. There were 3 adults and 3 children and the accommodations worked very well. The internet worked well for us. The owner answered any questions I had and checked with us in the middle of our week long stay to see if we needed any thing. There were convenience stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. We purchased a 7 day link card and took full advantage of it. There was a walking path around Jamaica lake within 3 blocks which made for a nice evening stroll. Grocery stores were on the one bus line which made food shopping easy. I would recommend this property to someone going to Boston on vacation.

Charming house in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The house.was charming in a great location near the subway. We made many trips into Boston. The house was spacious and had an updated kitchen with a large dining area. My family loved it.

Spacious older home in nice area with good access to public transit. Pictures nicer than home.

  • 3 of 5

Home met our needs but was very noisy due to creaking floors and another rental unit upstairs. No bathroom on top level with 2 bedrooms. Pictures are much nicer making us expect a property of a higher caliber, thus price was higher than it was worth. Unit had AC and laundry which was excellent. Property owner quite responsive.

Owner's Response: I am really sorry you did not find the home to your liking. All homes in Boston are older but this one was completely renovated with new windows, walls, floors refinished and the kitchen is actually newer than the pictures show so I am having a hard time understanding how it was not up to expectations. Sincerely sorry it was not what you are looking for but we keep the house up to a very high standard and are always improving it.

Acceptable but dated

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for 7 days towards the end of June. The photos are out of date and do not represent the condition of the property. The yard is overgrown and the deck is well worn with orange tape cautioning areas of stress. As for the inside it was OK but could use touch up work and a good scrubbing or repainting, There was a gnat infestation in basement shower and floor drain, and in the main floor bathroom. The kitchen and appliances are very nice, linens were stained, but clean.

The location itself was very convenient with the subway about 8 minutes away. With the "Charlie card" for the "T" it was very easy to get around Boston. There are a large number of restraunts and an excellent bakery, neighborhood grocery, and an ice cream store a couple of blocks away. The owner was very responsive to inquiries and request to arrive early.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you did enjoy aspects of the home but surprised that the inside needed a deeper cleaning. I have used the same cleaning crew for 17 years and rarely get complaints on their work. I wish the guest would have said something and I could have tried to get them back into the house to touch up.

Great Home for a Weekend in Boston

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do it justice. Great place to stay. Stayed with a few family and friends for a weekend in Boston, and it was perfect. Huge kitchen, plenty of beds, couches, and places to sleep. There is a lot of places nearby and it's was cheap and quick cab ride into the popular downtown spots, and even closer to Fenway and the surrounding area. Jeremy was very helpful in answering questions and making sure we had everything we needed to be prepared and have an enjoyable stay.
