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.

Excellent place to stay for our first trip to Boston!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to Boston and the house was perfect for my wife and our two young girls (aged 2 and 3). We brought some books and activities for them but they mostly used the books and games provided by Tony. We had another 2 guests arrive for the last 2 days of our vacation and Tony made sure there was adequate parking for everyone at the rear of the house. Tony was great to deal with before, during and after our stay.

This area of Newton was very easy to navigate and stores with all the necessities were very short drive away (Same road, easy for newcomers to the area).

I was most pleased with the kitchen and the bathroom. The kitchen was recently updated., and even came stocked with items such as salt, pepper, k-cups, paper towels, etc. The bathroom was also updated recently and the shower had great water pressure and lots of hot water!

I would certainly recommend this rental to anyone, especially with small kids. We will most definitly be booking this house for our family trip to Boston.

Thanks Tony.

Comfortable relaxing stay in a gorgeous neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent, well appointed home. We were quite comfortable with our two young sons. Owners left us snacks upon our arrival which were welcome after a day of travelling with young ones. The neighborhood is lovely. I only wish I had brought my running shoes to take a brisk run on it's sidewalks. The houses were amazing. Thank you for such a comfortable space.

A great find in the Boston/Newton area

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our child studying at Boston College, about 2 miles away. We could not have been happier with our stay here. It was a perfect location. We had parking. The house was very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The kitchen was excellent. In addition to all of the books and games that were available, Anthony provided a book containing information about the Boston area. He responded right away to any queries we had prior to the start of our trip. We were traveling with a baby and Anthony was able to provide a high chair and portable crib for our use. We would definitely stay here again. A great find! Thank you.

Awesome Place & Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home for our family vacation to Boston! Tony's place is just 10-15 minutes from downtown Boston and in the beautiful neighborhood of Newton. Our 3 boys loved the bunk beds and their private room. The family room was a great place to relax after each day of sightseeing. The kitchen and dining room are beautiful and perfect for meals. We ate breakfast every morning and then went on our way to see the city. We weren't too far away from Fenway which was good, because after travelling the day we arrived we had about 45 minutes to unload our things and get to the Red Sox game. We drove into the city and parked one day to walk the Freedom Trail. Parking is pretty expensive, so you could grab the Green T at the Boston College stops. We also traveled up to Maine and New Hampshire to spend a day at the beach, about an hour drive. This place was so convenient and made our trip a great experience. If ever in Boston again we would absolutely stay here at Tony's. Thanks again Tony for a great place to stay and all the great communication that we had during our time in Boston!
