LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to visit Boston but knew nothing about the area. We knew the places we wanted to visit (Fenway, Sam Adams Brewery, the harbor) so we decided to find something in the middle and close to the T line (since we were not renting a car). THIS WAS PERFECT! Not only was the location exceptional, but the view from the rooftop patio was amazing! We were able to visit everything we wanted but want to go back just to stay here again! We would definitely recommend it!!

Boston at its best!

  • 5 of 5

My son lives in Boston, and finding a nice place to stay for a few nights visiting him has proven a challenge. My preference is to live like a local when traveling, which cannot be experienced if staying in a hotel. Michael's well located place is in the heart of the South End, one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city. The area is walkable with many great local restaurants nearby. Michael is a superb host. His place is comfortable, clean, quiet,...and the rooftop terrace is a jewel. The weather was wonderful during my stay, and grilling on the rooftop was a treat. Morning coffee on the rooftop was the perfect way to start my day. Thank you Michael for sharing your special place. I will definitely be back!

Great location! Great Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO so we were a little hesitant. No worries needed.Great place to stay that is only a five minute walk to the Back Bay T Station. The Brownstone is exactly how it is pictured. We especially loved the roof top deck! We felt so much more comfortable than in a hotel and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends. Thank you Michael!

Can't be beaten for location. There for the marathon and wanted somewhere close to the finish. Yet close to great restaurants. Totally recommend Michael's apartment.

Beautiful Brownstone in the heart of the South End

  • 5 of 5

The location is amazing. Parking lot right across the street. Spanish restaurant Barcelona right as you exit the parking. Part of being on top floor of a Brownstone... stairs, I can name 10 different reasons why going upstairs is good for you, so I didn't complain. Michael keep his place clean and everything you would need, he has. I will stay there again. Thank you Michael!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the gift--I thoroughly enjoyed the wine. One of the main reasons I bought this place, was because of it being only two flights of stairs to be on the top flr unit-- which provided extra ceiling height and four skylights and access to a private roof deck.

There are many pros to this property. First of all, the location. It is in a great neighborhood and many fabulous restaurants are within walking distance. Check them out! Don't venture away from the neighborhood, like we did. The good stuff is in your backyard! CVS is right down the street as well as bicycles to rent. It's close enough to the "T" and UBER drivers seem to be in the area constantly. We never waited more than 5 minutes for one. The apartment is just adorable. Light and airy with plenty of space. The longer we stayed, the more we fell in love with it. It's for 2 people because of the bedding. One queen sized bed in one bedroom. The bed is just ok. Would have preferred better linens on the bed. Central heat, but only one window mounted AC unit in the bedroom. It is well stocked in the kitchen and bathroom. Plenty of windows and the rooftop patio is a bonus ( although it seemed like everyone had a rooftop patio) if the weather is nice enough for you to enjoy it.

The cons are: if you have any sort of disability or you have trouble managing stairs....this is not the place for you. Technically, there are four flights of stairs. One flight to reach the front door ( 7 or 8 steps that are very steep ), then theres a flight of steep and very narrow stairs that lead to the front door. ( was tough getting our large luggage up those ) ...after you enter the front door you have another flight of stairs to reach the apartment. The fourth flight is the one you'd use to reach the rooftop patio. Which is accessed by a clear hatch that you open at the top of the stairs. Cool!! And beautiful!! Michael was very accommodating and let us stretch our checkout time a little bit!
