Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed for six nights, which would have been sufficient to discover any shortcomings in the property, but we found none of significance. Internally the property is modern, well-equipped, and clean. Bedrooms and living room are air-conditioned, the beds and bedding are entirely satisfactory, the kitchen area is particularly good, and the Wi-Fi and (cable) TV work well, not that there was much time for TV. The neighborhood is good, but has plenty of basic shopping and restaurant facilities. It is an easy seven minute walk to Sullivan Square for the 'T' (Boston's subway) and many bus routes, and there is off-street parking on the property for those who need a car to travel further afield.



It is hard to say much about Ken himself, because we had little contact. However, all of it was good: Pre-visit e-mails were clear and friendly, a query which arose when we first arrived was resolved in just a few minutes, and we felt that Ken would have been there to help if needed.

House was spacious but a bit old

  • 3 of 5

Could have been cleaner - the floor was not swept well (the owner re-swept it after we asked him to) and there was I emptied water in the hot water pot when we arrived. However, the location was convenient and the comfortable.

We had a great time!

Very affordable, simple, and clean house to stay in if you're traveling with a larger group to Boston. Only about a 10-15min uber to downtown. Owner was very accommodating and communicated with us clearly throughout the process. Thank you!

Very Nice and Clean Apatment

  • 5 of 5

This luxurious first floor accomodation is not evident from street level. However as soon as you open the apartment door the excellent taste of the owner is revealed in the decoration and furnishings.The lounge/diner is spacious and very comfortable, the kitchen is state of the art, and very well equipped. The three bedrooms are very comfortable with ample facilities.

The apartment is very well situated in the Italian Quarter of the City, with an abundance of very popular Italian restaurants. Across from the premises, there is a very well stocked and varied general food store which we found very helpful for the occasions we self catered. The proximity of the apartment to the Assembly Row and surrounding area was a real bonus and spent many hours there eating, shopping and just enjoying the atmosphere. The nearby open topped bus and trolley rides (which included a complimentary boat ride around the harbour) were excellent value for money, and were a must to see everything. We would have no reservations about recommending the accomodation to anyone. In fact if we ever visit Boston again the apartment would be our first choice for accommodation.

We loved having so much space, a full kitchen to cook and hang out in, and being in close Downtown

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience staying in Somerville at Geng's rental. Geng was easy to communicate with by phone and e-mail prior to our arrival. The key-pad made for easy access to the rental when we checked in. Geng had 2 parking permits, which allowed us to park on the street right next to the house. The house is beautiful. Three tastefully decorated,comfortable bedrooms gave the 6 of us plenty of space to spread out! We enjoyed using the kitchen and hanging out in the comfortable living room. The rental was a short cab ride from downtown. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We had a wonderful Ladies weekend and are glad we chose to stay at Geng's house. Geng is very thoughtful and responsive. I forgot my toiletry kit in the bathroom when we left, and Geng is very kindly mailing it back to me.
