Great time in Boston

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Boston and enjoyed our stay in the condo. The four of us like to walk, so it was easy to get to the subway, restaurants, downtown Boston, Harvard, MIT - within 2 miles you can be almost anywhere! The accommodations were very clean and well maintained. The convenience of a washer and dryer came in handy since we had just spent four days in Maine - thus tossing a few items in the washer was great. This unit worked well for two couples. While the second bathroom is off the kitchen and a bit of a way from the second bedroom, the size and great update they did was worth it. I would highly recommend this unit.

Great, convenient place to stay in Boston

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Chris' flat in Somerville. It's location was great. The flat was very comfortable and clean. There were plenty of towels and even laundry soap and fabric softner to wash our clothes.

Only one minor set back: When we arrived the cleaning person had not put back the keys into the lockbox, but the owner quickly found a solution for us.

When I return to Boston I plan on reaching out to stay here again. Thanks again Chris. Cheers!

Perfect for Harvard graduation

  • 5 of 5

We were in Boston for a Harvard graduation and Chris' place was was great. It was easy to get to Harvard by bus and we took the 'T' to get to other places in Boston - both options were much better than trying to drive a car! The apartment was great .. for 6 of us and a baby -- quiet and lots of space. Rooms/beds were comfortable; kitchen was large and well equipped. Pull out sofa is a pull out sofa! Washer and dryer also game in handy. And, the high chair and pack 'n play make it a very family friendly place. Apartment is in a residential neighborhood, but Union Square offers lots of eating and coffee shop options and is a relatively short walk away -- even with the baby. Chris was very responsive and restocked supplies, as requested, quite quickly. Happy to have found this place on a very busy weekend!

Nice, clean and conveniently located!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a very quant and quiet neighborhood in Somerville. However, it's very close to getting to the train to downtown Boston or anywhere you want to go. We wound up taking Uber to restaurants and bars. There are several bars and restaurants that are walkable too! The bathrooms are all updated and redone very beautifully. For two couples was plenty of space - putting the two twins together to make a King was fine - didn't even notice.

Would definitely recommend this condo!

Owner's Response: I'm Glad you enjoyed Your Stay. Yes I bought 2 high end memory foam mattresses that when placed together have barely no gap in them. Then I put an additional foam mattress top on it. Then I use 2 Clamps to keep these special bed frames I made from splitting Not just a sheet to grab hold of them together. But I'm glad someone brought it up after 4 years of doing it. I must be doing it right and it is so comfortable. Thanks Chris the owner

Passable-needs a woman's touch

  • 3 of 5

Cozy two bedroom condo with good location. Lots of stairs. Layout was unusual, probably a result of renovation. One of the baths was.very small. Owner was very responsive to requests. Could stand to replace draperies, but blinds were fine. Clean and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Ok where do I start. I had to cancel and rebook these 2 senior couples 4 times before they got the right dates and deposit right. They booked 4 1/2 months in advance to my condo. We talked about everything from bedrooms and baths to location and stairs. There are 6 front stairs and 13 going up to the second floor. Which I explained to them twice. I told them it was recently renovated in the fall of 2014. Where I added a full bath in place of a walk in closet. Which is not needed in a vacation rental. This is the cheapest 2 bedroom 2 full bath in Boston. And to get 3 stars because she doesn't like my choice of curtains is absurd. I'm sorry if i'm mad but I work hard to provide a newly renovated, cheaply priced 2 bedroom 2 bath condo. I guess you can't please everyone. Chris the Owner
