Back Bay West Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath in great center city location

This Newbury Street brownstone was gut-rehabbed in 2013, offering both modern luxuries and unparalleled access to Boston’s high end retail, night life and tourist attractions in the classic Back Bay setting. A great hotel alternative for couples or small families.

This 3rd floor one bedroom suite features a full sized, open kitchen and living room. The brand new unit has polished hardwood floors throughout the unit, central air, granite countertops and new stainless steel appliances. The bedroom features a queen mattress set, nightstand, reading lamp and alarm clock. The bathroom has a beautiful tile surround tub and shower combo. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans and cooking utensils, along with oven, range and refrigerator and there is a breakfast bar that seats two. The living room has a flat screen TV with local channels, a desk and chair, and the sectional sofa pulls out to a full bed which makes this the perfect unit for two or four people.

All units are equipped with wireless internet, irons, ironing boards, hair dryers, coffee makers, tea kettles, toasters, microwaves, linens and towels, as well as a guest book with instructions and recommendations. There is also in-unit laundry free for guests use.

All building and unit doors are on secure, code-activated locks so coordinating key pick-up and drop-off is not necessary. There are several parking garages near the property available for both short and long term stays.

Bait and switch

  • 1 of 5

So I tried to rent this property for 2 days, 10/17/16-10/19/16 which was the minimum rental and the property was listed as available. I got a note back from the property manager saying it was not available and I should look at one of their other properties. I did another search on VRBO only to find that this property was available but the price magically went up. Nice bait and switch. Don't worry I will never rent from you.

Owner's Response: Hi John, It's unfortunate to hear about your negative experience. although we do carry two night minimums, we don't always accept two night stays if they don't fit within the surrounding. As far as rates are concerned, we have been doing portfolio wide rate updates recently so it makes sense that the rates may have changed so we're accurately representing our units. I am sure there was no attempt at a bait and switch and it is likely that we would've rejected the stay regardless of rate based on a poor fit. Thank you for your understanding. Best, Will

Position good, close to shops, restaurant, airport bus to logan one street away. Apartment needs attention, light. Globe over kitchen bench out,, light globe in bathroom out, fan in bedroom could not be switched on could need batteries replaced on remote control. Otherwise. O.k.

The perfect location! The apartment was clean with all the necessities.

  • 5 of 5

The only complaint would be the pillows left a little to be desired. I bought a few at TJMaxx down the street.

I would rent it again :)

Great location and generally good facilities

  • 3 of 5

This apartment - up two flights of steep stairs (which wasn't a problem for us, but could be for others) - was in a great location close to shops and restaurants. The bed was comfy and the facilities were generally good but there were some maintenance issues, including a missing remote battery, broken and dirty iron, unclean oven and oven trays, lack of plates and knives (3 of each only for a 4 person apartment!). Some attention to detail would make this a great apartment. Unfortunately arriving on a Friday afternoon, only emergency support was available over the weekend so none of the maintenance issues were addressed. Also, our booking wasn't confirmed in HomeAway so we had no payment or communication history via the HomeAway App.
