About Tony

We love to travel the world -- see new places, and try new things. We work extremely challenging jobs, but always will find time for family / friends, and the occasional trip outside the US.

While we've spent most of our time traveling close to home, or half of the states in the US, we've also been interested in traveling abroad... to the Caribbean (Aruba, Turks), Mexico, Hawaii, France, French Polynesia (Tahiti, Bora Bora), Cambodia, Japan. We are looking to expand that experience to multiple areas in Europe and other parts of Asia, over the next few years.

We believe that from our traveling experience, we understand your travel needs, and what will make or break your vacation stay, and we look forward to providing what we can to ensure your experience in our home is a great one!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great experience. Tony and Sok made us feel comfortable and at home right away. Their apartment is meticulously clean, newly renovated, and beautifully furnished. My husband and I and our two children, ages 6 and 8, spent six weeks here while waiting for construction on our home to be completed. The apartment was perfect for us and we loved getting to know the neighborhood. Not only is it a great location for access to Boston and Cambridge, but within a mile radius you have three great parks/playgrounds, a public library, pubs and restaurants in Brighton Center, and the Oak Square YMCA that has two pools and offers non-member daily passes. One of the great things about this apartment is that it is solely set up as a guest apartment. There is plenty of space and storage, which made it ideal for a long-term stay like ours. We were even able to set up a temporary home office in the small room off the living room. Our kids loved that the shelves were filled with new puzzles and games for them to play with. The kitchen is amazing, brand new and fully-stocked with everything you would need. Tony and Sok thought of everything, right down to providing basic staples for us when we arrived, like sugar, oil and spices. We really enjoyed our stay at Tony and Sok's and highly recommend it. Our experience there was perfect for us, exactly what we needed.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The home was very very clean and very large. Nicely decorated. Everything we needed and more was available. Owners were accessible and there if needed. (which we didn't) Nice to know they were a text away. Great safe neighborhood with beautiful homes all around. Easy access to mass transit (however boston transit is not nyc somewhat limited) however urber was the way to go. Boston is very expensive. We were a party of 4 and needed 3 bedrooms. This would have been 2 or 3 hotel rooms costing 250.00 a night. This home was SO very affordable if you need 2 bedrooms or 3 bedrooms. Nice to have access to washer and dryer. Overall we were extremely pleased with our choice!!

Great space for a family

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in this charming apartment when our family visited Boston. My teen boys took on bedroom, my daughter took the room off the living area and we were comfortable in the master. The space is clean and a short drive to Boston's center. We utilized Uber and it was about $30 each way. Our only issues was that one bath was tight with 5 people. Otherwise fantastic stay!

Short stay sweetie

  • 4 of 5

Was unsure from the outside. Modern, clean, and spacious inside.

One bath left some family members waiting. Tolerable for a short trip.

Nice property, set in a lovely area, close to city

  • 4 of 5

For 4 of us the property was more than big enough, good bedrooms and large living area Located in a nice area and with easy bus ride to Boston centre. We also had a car and property is pretty much bang on the I-90 so you can get out anywhere without much hassle. Home from home.
