Michael (the owner) was incredibly helpful. The place was comfortable, clean and so well located to everything. I highly recommend!! If I return to Boston I will definitely check to see if it is available.

Perfect property for a couple to get away!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four days at the Boston Penthouse and we loved our stay. The area (South End) that the townhouse is in has an amazing energy without the touristy feel we found in other portions of the city. There are a plethora of delicious restaurants within a five minute walk. My wife loved the wood-fired pizza from Picco (across the street) and their beer menu is superb. There are a handful of small grocery stores in the area and we enjoyed coffee and lunch on the charming rooftop deck.

Michael is a terrific owner to work with; his communication was top-notch and he went out of his way to make our arrival time work. This was our first experience using HomeAway. It was a welcome change from hotel stays, but future owners/properties will have a lot to live up to after our wonderful stay here!

Great location for food and atmosphere!! The property was better than we were imagining.

  • 5 of 5

Property was better than the pictures. Very well maintained and we really loved the area. We would have loved to enjoy the rooftop but didn't have enough time. Will definitely return again. Michael was great to deal with.

Great place to stay when in Boston!

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean, comfortable and convenient. Everything was provided that we needed. We felt very at home.

The place earned four stars because of the stairs. They are doable as long as you know about them to begin with as we did.

Owner's Response: Thx you for your review. One reason I purchased this property and paid a premium was that it only had two staircases ( which is very rare) to be on the top flr of a brownstone.
