great location

  • 2 of 5

We found this to be a great location for getting to the train, grocery and a few restaurants. It would have been helpful had the owners provided a booklet with this information. The home was comfortable but in need of repairs from rotted steps to torn screens. It has no dishwasher and the bathroom in the basement didn't even have a mirror. They tell me now they are going to do remodeling. It had off street parking which was a big plus and if they make improvements it will be a convenient place .

Great safe location, easy walk to the T, renovated, comfortable beds

  • 4 of 5

The longer we stayed in this rental the more we realized and appreciated the convenience and security we felt staying there. We didn't rent a car and it worked out perfectly! The grocery store was just a few blocks up the street. A delicious corner restaurant was a life saver that first late night coming in. Later in the week we walked around the corner to a laundromat. Walking to the T was fun and everytime we walked the neighborhood we felt more like home.

I really liked the security of a button pad lock on the outside of the building as well as another one on our unit door. The kitchen is beautifully modern style remodeled. I appreciated all the soaps and tolietpaper provided. The beds were comfortable too. I was traveling with my four children. Two of the kids stayed with us for only two nights and there was enough beds and couches for all to sleep comfortably. There was only one shower/bathroom which wasn't a problem for us. I think they are in the process of renovating the bathroom too so I am sure the shower would be changed. The shower could have been scrubbed a bit more clean if not changing it and sealed better in the corners. The water pressure was great though. The bedrooms didn't have curtains which again I think they are still renovating. It would be nice to not have the sun wake me up so early. Overall, I would definitely stay here again. Great location for Harvard, MIT, grocery stores and the T takes you everywhere else. I have already recommended it to my friends who are traveling here next year. The owners responded well and we loved having a home away from home.

Excellent location. Very clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

The house was only a few blocks form Whole Foods, TJs and a Pharmacy. The river was also in walking distance. The house was clean and comfortable. Ample space in the bedrooms and common areas.
