Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for son's graduation in Cambridge. Perfect location. Very convenient. Very quiet neighborhood. Facilities were great. Only drawback was the 3 stories of stairs we had to lug our suitcases up and down but the upside was the view from the great deck was outstanding. Nice hardwood floors and furniture. AC in master bedroom rattled some when cycling but other than that, everything was great. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: As I tell people this is a penthouse condo. And there is 2 flights of stairs to get there. People see the roof top deck, the cathedral ceilings and want the view. But you have to get up there This house was built in 1875. There was no elevators back then. Chris the owner

Great rental property

  • 5 of 5

In town to vist Fenway ballpark. Upon looking at the rates for hotel in Boston vs this rental, it was a no brainer to go with this 2 bedroom unit. The two bedroom apt unit was perfect for our weekend getaway. Clean, spacious, great location, the parking pass that was included helped us out tremendously and the rooftop balcony was a bonus. Since parking is limited in Boston, we decided to leave the car parked in the street and take Lyft/Uber anytime we went to the city. Lyft/Uber approx. $12-$15 to Boston from rental. Chris was also very responsive with all my questions prior to our arrival. I would highly recommend this rental.

Note: this rental is on the top floor so there are 3 flights of stairs. It wasn't an issue for us but might be for those that have limited capacity.

Fun facts: if you want to get a taste of Mike's Pastry (Boston's popular cannoli spot..avoid the long lines at the North End location and opt for the location in Somerville, its only a 7 min drive from the rental).

Clean, Quaint, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The communication with the owner was perfect. He was helpful and so very friendly. The location was close enough to get where we needed with no problem yet far enough to be out of the crazy hub-bub. Clean, cool, and very spacious. If I come to Boston again, I have my lodging.

Chris's property is located close to subway which made travel into the city very easy and convenient. Uber drivers were accessible as well. We had a wonderful stay. Recommend this property to families and a party of 5.
