one of the Reasons I Chose Brighton/brookline Was It's Easy Access to the Primary Roadways. This Location is Super Close to Memorial Drive Via Bu Bridge, Rt 9 to Go West Towards Natick. Rt 90, for Longer Hauls West Or East to Rt 95 Or Rt 495. Storrow Drive for Cambridge, the Airport Or Downtown. It's Easy to Both Get On and Off These Roadways to This Apartment Which is Unusual in Boston.

Great for experiencing Boston

  • 3 of 5

Though the place itself wasn't the. Pat glamorous, we really enjoyed our stay. The unit had everything we needed (never underestimate guaranteed parking!), from awesome smelling shampoo to coffee and a kettle, and visiting both downtown and the Charles esplanade was easily done (walking distance to the Charles and a speedy Uber downtown). There were tonnes of excellent restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance as well. (Pro tip: The owner's recommendations for restaurants were incredible.) Check-in and check-out were seamless, as well. I would likely rent this unit again. It isn't pretty, but if you aren't picky and you're looking to spend your time exploring the city, this may be the place for you.

This works well for stay in Boston

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was a good size and met our needs.

The bed and bedding are comfortable.

The bathroom is fresh

Everything is clean.

Parking spot is a plus

The pool is delightful, refreshing, and enjoyed.

Good location

Some issues that could be improved:

- Directions to find the apartment once you arrive at the complex.

- The key pad entrance and door need repair so as to support a secure and accessible entry

- More comfortable living room chairs.

- The TV did not connect and a reply from the owner did not occur.

I would rent this property again now that I know it. Thank you
