Fantastic property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property, it's a lovely character apartment in a really nice location. Everything is very close around Back Bay, easy walking distance to all of the places you're likely to go as a tourist and handy to the trains if you want to venture further. There are some great restaurants and cafes close by as well. John as a host is very responsive and great on the communication throughout.

Perfect Boston Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect spot for a long stay in Boston. We traveled as a family (myself, my husband and our 9-month old). The 2 bedrooms and full bath are upstairs and were ideal for having the baby in a separate room to maximize sleep for everyone. Downstairs was a spacious (for Boston standards) living room, dining room area, and kitchen. We had everything needed (including laundry). John was helpful and responsive and the location cannot be beat. The South End is the best neighborhood and the apartment affords easy access to Back Bay, Downtown and Beacon Hill. Thanks so much!

Great location, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apartment last minute. It was my first VRBO experience and it was amazing. John was very easy to work with. He even checked on us mid stay to make sure all was going well.

The apartment itself is great. Great location. Walking distance to many sites and close to the train.

Overall an amazing place!

Beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults and one 5 year old) had a great time staying here. The apartment itself is spacious, nicely decorated and well-equipped (including plenty of cooking stuff). It's in a beautiful area of Boston full of leafy streets and attractive red brick buildings. For us a particular highlight was the nearby park, which had good play equipment and lots of friendly kids for our son to play ball with. Only a few minutes further afield there is a major shopping and dining area around the Prudential Center. Various nearby subway stations give easy access to the rest of the city; we also found that many tourist attractions such as the aquarium and Harvard were easily walkable from here. Our hosts were very accommodating about entry and exit arrangements. Highly recommended.

Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this apartment when we saw it on-line and it was even better when we arrived. Very clean & nicely decorated with lots of room to spread out. Walking to Copley Sq along the greenway is easy, safe and very enjoyable with parks and trees everywhere. Lots of restaurant options all around. We'll be staying again when we're back in Boston!
