Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and I stayed a week and were very happy with the apartment. It had every amenity you could need. We loved the quiet street and was close to restaurants and easy to get to all of the sights. Dan was very responsive and accommodating to a change in our itinerary. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice Property

  • 5 of 5

This property is clean and well decorated. It's in a good South End location. The street is generally quiet; the neighborhood is packed with great restaurants. The reservation process was easy. The owner lives in the building. Check in was quick. This 150 year old property has a window air conditioning unit, but we chose to keep the windows open due to the moderate temperatures. Lyft was a $23 fare from Boston Logan. The silver bus line is a block away. The Orange Line Massachusetts T stop is a 14 minute walk. North Boston is one transfer away on the T. The rental cost was reasonable with $375 damage deposit was charged . Administrative and cleaning fees were added. The owner is helpful and friendly. The guide book is packed with outstanding recommendations. All the places we tried were excellent. This nineteenth century building does not offer an outdoor area for relaxing. The furniture is stylish, clean, and fresh. It is for sitting and talking not lounging and relaxing. Public transportation is available, but involves walking. Ride sharing cars (Uber & Lyft) are abundant. We used a combination of Lyft and public transportation with good results. Unfortunately this area is under a south departure corridor from Logan airport. Under certain conditions departures start about 6 AM. Jets pass close enough to disturb early morning sleep. Overall this rental is relatively convenient, very clean, stylish, well kept, and surrounded by great places to eat. We recommend this rental for couples enjoying the South End or visiting the Medical Center.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind works Julia and Joe. I do apologize for the airplane noise, its not at all typical and such flights are not actually allowed over the South End, there is however a closed runway that is used a few times each month, its only supposed to be opened during unusual wind direction...

Great choice for our stay in Boston!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Seattle to Boston and were delighted with our stay here. Very convenient to bus routes and then on to connect with the subway. After a busy day in the city we loved coming back to this quiet neighborhood.. Very good restaurants within a few blocks. Thanks, Dan, for taking good care of us.

Great location, charming property

  • 4 of 5

Dan is thoughtful and informative. Property is located in the south end. It is about a 30 minute walk from anything you would want to see. It's a on a sleepily little street in a safe neighborhood. If you are interested experiencing the real Boston the South End and more specifically this property is the way to go.

It's located on the Silver line, which isn't the most convenient line of public transportation. In addition, there is no public free parking, so I would recommend not using or getting a rental car during your visit. Parking in Boston is crazy expense. You could easily spend the same amount on parking as you do renting the car. We used Uber or walked for our entire 5 day stay it was less expense than a rental car. Stay with Dan you won't be disappointed.
