                                                            On site assistance was very helpful with little things like the televisions. Stairs would be an issue for mobility challenged but this is a great place to base and Uber from

                                                            Great apartment. Dead end quiet street, despite River St. being a main road.

                                                            I know the ares well. Worked at the Thomas Menino YMCA. Great to be back in the area, even if its just for a week. I would come back in heart beat!

                                                            Hidden Gem was a beautiful apartment, a remodeled Victorian home, in a diverse neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the neighbors were extremely helpful and kind. The house was right next to a park, we enjoyed watching amateur league baseball in the evenings. We rented a car, but next time we will definitely use Uber to get around. I would recommend this apartment to others, Lawrence was a joy to work with.

                                                            Wonderful guests! They exemplified what great guests should be: communicative, polite, easy going and most of all clean, tidy and respectful.

                                                            Please feel free to come back again. We would love to have host you!

                                                            Great apartment with easy access to Boston

                                                            kaitlyn R.

                                                            Apartment is clean and well-kept; the beds are comfortable and the linens fresh. The kitchen is big and the appliances are all up - to - date. We had a great time over our weekend stay. Forest Hills T stop is about a 15 minute drive from the house and takes you directly into downtown Boston, making for a very easy commute in for sightseeing. The only drawback to the place is that parking was a bit tough - there are spots in the back for you, but there seemed to be quite a bit of traffic on the street while we were there, and with it being a narrow street, it made it hard to get in and out. We were blocked in quite a few times by people parking directly in front of the driveway.

                                                            However, overall the place was great and I would highly recommend it for an affordable spot for a family.

                                                            Fantastic place to stay!

                                                            Jenn H.

                                                            My friends and I recently rented this lovely apartment while in Boston. The location is easy to get to and from. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to be close to the city, but not right in the thick of it. We had so much space and felt very comfortable here. The apartment had everything we needed and was super cozy. The neighbors were super helpful in dealing with some parking issues caused by other houses, as well as understanding when the parking was difficult.

                                                            Location

                                                            There is well managed public park - Ross Playground - next to the house that hosts different soccer and baseball league matches. In addition, there is an extremely modern YMCA within 3 minute drive of the apartment. Harvard Arnold Arboretum, Franklin Park Zoo, George Wright Golf Course and Jamaica Plain neighborhood are all within 5 minutes drive. Welcome and Enjoy the neighborhood!
