Reviewer Comments:

I stayed at this lovely duplex at the last minute since I had a family member in the hospital (Brigham and Women's) and live too far away to visit regularly. It is a very sweet, attractive, well-cared-for and well-furnished upper duplex, larger than it looks in photos. It was in an ideal place for access to the Longwood area, and had good restaurants (we liked Misono) and a supermarket in walking distance. Free laundry (out of the unit) was a plus. The neighborhood feels safe and people were friendly. I stayed there with two dogs. If I have a criticism, and it is a tiny one, it would be that the lock on the front door is pretty flimsy; I would have been nervous staying there as a single female. It also would have been nice to have a door at the top of the stairs, it would not be difficult to fall down a long steep flight. But I would recommend the place to the fussiest of my friends and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.Thanks for making an otherwise difficult time a whole lot easier.

Owner's Response: So glad we could help! Please come again any time if there is a need! Regarding the front door lock, it is original to the house of 1920's vintage, so we provide a lock bar in case anyone gets nervous. But as West Roxbury is the safest neighborhood in Boston, there has never been an incident at this home since we have managed it beginning in 2002!

Nice apartment, not perfect, fond of “extra” fees

Reviewer Comments:

Nice flat, good location, clean, mostly well-furnished. The couches were not comfortable or in good repair. The internet was poor, almost impossible to retrieve from the foyer (to get lockbox code). Once in the apartment, the service dropped regularly especially in the living room. Given the answer to our query, it’s clearly not a new problem. Given the cost of the flat, that it’s advertised with WiFi and that they clearly knew it was an issue already, the internet should have been fixed before we got there. What is annoying, and it is not limited to this company, is the fees for “extras”. We were charged $125 for cleaning. There are 3 problems with that: (a) cleaning should be part of the up front price, it’s not as if it’s optional, (b) if I’m paying $125 for cleaning, why is there a long list of things I have to do before leaving that look an awful lot like cleaning if I want my $250 damage deposit returned? (c) I’d have cleaned a place of this size and nature two or three times for $125 (and I’m very well paid in my day job). Of course, the company wants the price to look attractive on the listing so the “extras” get left out, but that just means everyone’s being a bit shady. The second problem was the $50 “damage protection” fee. Again, not optional, so why was it not in the daily rate? There’s no good answer to that. What is the $50 fee, which is not optional, if not just another money grab? And if I’m paying a $50 damage protection fee, why am I paying $250 for the deposit? Oh, right, they need the deposit in case I don’t do all the pre-cleaning clean-up that I’m paying $125 for the privilege of doing myself. All things considered, a fine apartment, but practices that while, not unique to this company, are still pretty deplorable. Star ratings based on apt. not extra fees.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. The internet has been adjusted and is much improved. Regarding to the cleaning and fees, they are all shown up front and are quite reasonable. Unlike many of our competitors, there are no surprise fees, as they are all itemized prior to a booking being made. I'm sorry that you feel that they are not justified, however, the hundreds of other guests that we have had this year and prior have felt that we provide tremendous value for our customers as the reviews clearly show. I'm sorry that you did not.

Reviewer Comments:

We've just returned from a great week in Boston visiting friends. The apartment was in a good location for us and for a family of 5 was quite spacious. It had all the necessary amenities and well maintained. On the downside the WiFi connection was poor and very intermittent. Also the blinds were difficult to manage as some of the springs were gone so it meant the apartment was dark at times. However having said that we had plenty of towels, kitchen ware well stocked and all the small items like soap, detergent etc were there which isn't always the case in rentals. Lance my contact was very professional, helpful and easy to work with at all times. Overall I would recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Apologies for the spotty wifi. That has been corrected by a new, powerful router and is much improved! Additionally, the blinds that were soft have all been tightened and we will keep an eye out for that more closely in the future. Thanks for staying and we are thrilled you loved the location and size of the apartment for a family of 5.

We picked this W. Roxbury location for its easy highway and public transportation access plus street parking. The upper floor unit was clean, spacious and the kitchen fairly well equipped. There's a Roche Bros. within walking distance. We travelled with our dog and there's a great dog friendly park nearby. We would stay here again.
