About Christopher, Property Manager

I'm an enthusiastic restorer of beautiful old homes and fell in love with this charming turn of the century Dutch Colonial. After 6 years of restoration I find I'm away from the area more and more for extended business trips or visiting relatives. When I'm in the area I may be using the detached office studio.

Why Christopher, Property Manager chose Central Massachusetts

Location, location, location. Situated 2 blocks from Smith College campus, this home offers the best of vibrant Northampton within walking distance in any direction, while being nestled into a mature quiet neighborhood with tree lined streets and sidewalks.

What makes this house unique

If outdoor living space is your thing, you'll love the covered front porch with rocking chairs and bistro set, as well as the furnished backyard garden and patio with 45' waterfall, gas BBQ, gas fire-pit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks Christopher for a great stay - really nice house with all we needed. Love the waterfall and closeness to town. We have rented many VRBO houses and this is the best yet. We look forward to our return next summer.

We had a great five-night stay visiting our daughter for Thanksgiving. Charming older home in a beautiful neighborhood. An easy walk from Smith College and downtown Northampton. Clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Highly recommend. Looking forward to our next visit!

We felt right at home.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Chris' rental. The whole home was clean and comfortable, and Chris was easy to reach when needed. The kitchen is modern and well-furnished with everything needed for a comfortable stay, and the living room is so cozy and relaxing. The washer and dryer, wifi, and plenty of storage space all were convenient bonuses. Sitting out on the porch at the end of the day was one of my favorite parts of staying here. This home was the perfect size for the four of us and it really met and exceeded our needs and expectations.

Pleasant, comfortable, and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing stay on Crescent St. The house was thoroughly cleaned and prepared for our arrival. Clear, thoughtful instructions were provided and the owner was very responsive before and during our stay. We enjoyed the grill and the front porch especially. The house has nice charm yet is fully modernized. No issues whatsoever. About 15 min. walk into town, large Stop & Shop supermarket nearby and easy access to the many recreation trails in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We work hard to ensure guests feel at home and it's nice to hear that the effort shows. And we're glad you enjoyed the area - Crescent Street offers a short walk to everything in town. Check in with us again the next time you're in the area and we'll fire up the grill for you.

Very comfortable stay in a convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and I had a wonderful stay in Northampton over Memorial Day weekend. Christopher was an excellent host -- installed AC units in advance of the 90+ degree weather, and even left us flowers and a box of chocolates! Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable or convenient place to stay.

Thanks very much!!

A gem in the heart of Noho

  • 5 of 5

This charming house is so comfortable and clean. We loved the quiet neighborhood (with so many talented gardeners!) and the convenience to town and campus. I wish I could award bonus stars for all the thoughtful touches:

- Plenty of hooks on bedroom/bathroom doors for towels and robes

- Luggage racks in every bedroom

- Extra blankets and throws for chilly mornings

- A string of little white lights on the porch to welcome us "home" every night
