Family Vacation: Come visit Boston and enjoy all that it has to offer. Use this home as your 'home-base' and explore the surrounding areas. Take a boat to Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod, the train to New York City for a Broadway show, or rent a car and drive to Kittery for outlet shopping, a lobster dinner or a walk on the beach.

We fell in love with the home itself and its location - a short walk to Medford Square and it's close proximity to Boston. The 2nd floor rental apartment is spacious and bright and can accommodate 6 guests comfortably - all in beds (not sleep sofas or futons). You can walk to everything Medford has to offcer - restaurants, bakery, banks, liquor stores, bus stops, etc. We are proud to offer our guests a beautiful, clean, and well-maintained property in a safe area for you to enjoy while in Boston. Come experience our "home away from home" for yourselves - we look forward to meeting you!
We couldn't be happier with your lovely apartment. Thanks for all. I hate to leave.

What a treat it was to stay here! A perfect location between our relatives and the lovely city of Boston. And a wonderfully comfortable and spacious place to stay. Thank you!

Thank you! This space was so welcoming and homey. We were all so grateful for a comfortable place to relax and spend time together after fun-packed days exploring Boston and Cambridge. The extra special touches were wonderful. The location was great as well. We HIGHLY recommend this property!
Thanks for your hospitality.
This was a great apartment for our family of five to stay in during the Boston portion of our New England trip. The place was spotless and very nicely decorated, with ample space to relax after our busy days touring the city. The care and attention to detail that Rose and Guy put into the apartment is very evident: There were plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, shampoo, pots/pans, tissues, trash bags, and anything else you might need for a comfortable stay. It was nice to know if we forgot to pack something, it would most likely be there anyway! We also greatly appreciated all the extra touches, from the milk boxes for our kids, the nightlights in all the bedrooms, to the dish full of bite-sized candy in the living room. There was a bookcase full of DVDs and games, a cabinet stocked with spices and oils for cooking, and a lamp on a timer to welcome us back in the evenings. Rose even has a bulletin board set up with all kinds of information for public transportation, tourist sites, and take out food. It's a very easy and convenient drive into Boston from the apartment, but we also could have walked to a nearby T-stop. In every way, this is an awesome place to stay when visiting the Boston area.

Rose and Guy,
Thank you for the warm and inviting home that we returned to at the end of a long, hot day of sightseeing in Boston. The accommodations were wonderful. Anything we could use was available. We loved the extra touches you provided, from the coffee to the milk. It was a very thoughtful gesture. Thank you for a truly wonderful stay. If we head this way again, we will be sure to stay here.

We loved this apt. Our family of four spent four nights here from July 7-11. Rose was an excellent host. The apartment was spotless and the fridge had been stocked with juice and chocolate milk. Rose also had some biscotti for us, yum! We felt so welcomed at at home in this apartment. Every little detail has been thought of!
This is one of the places that you come to and discover that everything looks exactly like the pictures - no surprices. So clean, neat and well maintained.
Rose was very nice and helpful. In fact, after a short introduction you felt like home and did not need Rose around, because all was perfectly organised.
We loved the apartment, and will definitely return if we go to Boston once again.
Only one thing am I able to comment on. The television is fairly old and without HDMI connection. We wathced a movie instead, however in black and white, I guess there was a wiring problem.
Nevertheless, we rate this apartment a clear 5 star apartment, and a great thanks to Rose!

All previous comments apply! Home from home, etc., lovely apartment. 326 bus a godsend for us. Salvatore's best of the local restaurants for us. We did Boston on foot in two days. Freedom Trail fascinating, Esplanade/Commonwealth Avenue beautiful. All in all a lovely stay although we would have like to have taken greater advantage of all the apartment had to offer but there just wasn't the time. Rose and Guy were lovely hosts.
