Why Cynthia and John Monteiro chose Boston

Boston is a city filled with history and culture and features some of the most world renowed hospitals and institutions of higher learning. Our waterfront is busy and beautiful! Boston is often refered to as a 'walkable city' getting you to sites by either foot, train, trolley or subway. The cape and islands are either a short drive, ferry ride or bus ride away. One of our favorites is Martha's vineyard. Maine is an hour away and the outlets in either NH or MA are 45-60 minutes by car. A lot of our visitors like to tour Salem and check out the witch museum and harbor. For the children and adults the Children's Museum, Aquarium and Science Museums are a must!

What makes this apartment unique

You have the opportunity to purchase discount tickets to local area attractions. Just ask Cyndi! We also provide Charlie Cards for your first trip on the bus or train. Just replenish what you use for the next guest to get started.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thoroughly enjoyable stay in your lovely apartment- felt like home. Fabulous bed! Loved the outside private area. The Carlie Cards you gave us were superb and so simple to use. The no. 50 bus at the top of the street made our journey to the station very relaxed. After a day in Boston lovely to come back to this haven of peace and quiet.

Thank You both so very much.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The art work by John was impressive to view! We didn't arrive until after 2am due to flight delays, but we were still welcomed by Cindy who showed us everything. Highly recommend for those visiting Boston.

Perfect place for us to stay

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed here for 4 nights as we toured Boston and the surrounding areas. It was perfect for us. The price was very fair, the room was very clean and we had everything we needed for a relaxing home base. We drove to the closest T line the first morning. Once we parked, within 15 minutes we were standing in Boston Commons. I enjoyed sitting out on the patio as the weather was gorgeous! John and Cindy were great hosts and I am very glad we decided to rent this apartment.

Very beautiful home, pretty and peaceful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The apartment we stayed in was perfect, and very clean. We had everything we needed and privacy. The bed was extremely comfortable and having cable and free WiFi was an awesome bonus. We enjoyed the hottub and having towels provided. It was also nice to know we could wash our clothes before we left. I was happy to have our own private entrance. The humidifier really helped also. It was a very cozy and peaceful stay and we recommend this place to everyone.

Stay Here! Best choice in Boston!

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you need! Parking is right in front of the house. The washer and dryer were a major plus. Huge hot tub steps away from your door tucked nicely below the deck for ultimate privacy. Yard with beautiful mature trees to provide plenty of shade and enjoyable garden with patio furniture to enjoy breakfast outside before heading out for a day of fun. Quiet safe neighborhood. Easy access to grocery store. Refrigerator, dishes, griddle, microwave to easily make simple meals. We rented a car and drove to the local metro station to get to the heart of the city. There is also a bus that takes you to the metro station if you don't have a car. Owners very welcoming and easy to work with. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean and comfortable appartment

  • 4 of 5

Cynthia and John were very friendly and helpful and answered all our questions we had. John is great painter...- you must see his paintings in his house.

The Apartment was clean and cosy and equipped with everything you need.

We didn't realize from the Homepage that the apartment is in the cellar with almost no daylight but we spent all day outside. The oven is quite noisy .

All in all we had a great week in the apartment with very friendly hosts.

Car: not necessary

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Miniature golf

Golf: We are about a 10 minute walk to the George Wright Golf Course. It was designed by Donald Ross in 1938 and is well maintained by the City. It was named Best Municipal Course in MA and 14th best in the US according to Golf Digest. In 2009 it was the MGA ameturer qualifying site.

Ski: The Blue Hill Mountains, the highest point in Boston not only offers great hiking trails but also skiing and snow boarding. It is a 15 minute drive to this wonderful area. When we don't have snow in the winter they make it. You can see some of the slopes from our home and see them making the snow.
