Reviewer Comments:

Pretty comfortable apartment, nicely displayed. My family loved the terrace and its view over the city. Two points to regret : you definitely need a car to go downtown + a bit noisy (air-con in evenings from the nearby restaurant + early awakening because of the traffic). This is however quite acceptable.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed in Boston for a week and used this 4th-floor appartment which was great. The place is a little bit noisy with traffic but that's quite unavoidable in a large city like Boston. Otherwise, the appartment was extremely clean and the pictures and description on the website were perfectly accurate. It's nice to come home to a clean and well-furbished place after a long day visiting the city. We recommend this property without any hesitation.

It was the best, Lance and Jhon were always there for me by email or phone. It was perfect, and the buses and subways are really near. It was great.
