We'll Be Back!!
We'll Be Back!!
We couldn't have asked for more. The two of us had a wonderful 7 day stay at this immaculately clean and quiet condo; located perfectly between Hanover and Salem Streets. Within walking distance to everything. We felt very safe walking to and from the condo at any hour of the day or night. Neither of our taxi drivers - delivering from the airport and picking us up, had any trouble finding the condo. When I dropped an earring and it went under the bed, I feared not being able to find it. At even the best hotels the earring would have been hard to find among the dust bunnies. No dust bunnies under this bed!! Although there is a washer and dryer in the hall just outside the condo, we found the laundromat on Salem, across from the North Church just as convenient and we could do more loads at once. Although the temperatures were in the mid-90's, the 3 window air conditioners kept the condo comfortable day and night. We took the "T" to the Back Bay twice, and ended up walking 'home' each time. We aren't big city people; Boston didn't seem like a big city to us. We've already told everyone we've talked to about this wonderful condo, it's perfect location and a rental price well within our budget. Our only fear is that the next time we want to rent it, some of those friends will already have it reserved! Thanks Carlos and Cheryl for sharing your condo and making our vacation one that we will always remember.

We loved it!
We loved it!
We just got back from a week in this lovely condo. We were traveling with 3 children--a 14 year old, a 10 year old, and a 1 year old. The location absolutely can't be beat--the day we did the Freedom Trail, we stopped back by the apartment to refill our drink bottles, change the baby's diaper, etc--it's just that convenient. The Old North Church is literally 100 steps away. We took the kids to play at all the area playgrounds and felt like locals. We loved the Italian restaurants and bakeries. Cheryl and Carlos, the owners, were wonderful--we emailed them tons of questions and they always responded with quick and helpful information. They even arranged to have the housekeeper bring us a pack and play for the baby. The girls shared the bedroom with the twin beds--it was a bit cramped but they were happy to have their own room, which they don't get when we stay in a hotel! Cheryl sent info about parking, but we found parking on the street for free just a few blocks away for the days we used our rental car to make day trips to Salem, Lexington & Concord, etc, then we turned in our car and used the metro--the girls' first experience with this; they were pros by the time we left. It was a 10 minute walk to the metro stop. It is on the smaller side, but honestly, it was worth that trade off for the location, and it was TONS more room than we would have gotten in a hotel--and we wouldn't have had the kitchen, living room, or a separate bedroom for the girls. It was very well maintained, clean, and had everything we needed for dinners at home, making coffee, etc. It's on a courtyard so you don't have any street noise as well.

This apartment is in a quiet courtyard steps away from all the fun that the North End of Boston has to offer! The apartment is very clean and comfortable. Carlos is very quick to respond to inquiries. Much more comfortable than staying in a hotel and much less expensive than hotels located in the heart of the city. You can walk to just about anything you will want to see and do.

The owners of this property ensure that you feel right at home. They provide you with all the little things that ensure your comfort (unlike some renters who leave the place "bare bones", which requires you to search the neighborhood for basic daily consumables and home accessories). The place was very clean and located in a PERFECT location for anyone who likes good restaurants and is interested in the history of America. The metro station was only a 5-10 minute walk to the subway station and allowed for easy access to other parts of the Boston area (also very easy to get to/from the airport by public transit or a very short taxi ride). I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

This condo is in the most perfect North End location. You can walk to everything! My Mom and I felt very safe walking around at night and also during the day. I would recommend the Old Town Trolley Tours as one of their stops is just down the street approx. 3 blocks from the Condo so it was an easy walk for us to catch the tour. We loved the fact that there are lots of restaurants and bakeries just around the corner from the Condo. We tried out several bakeries, loved them all! Goody Grover's Market on Salem was a great place to pick up a salad to go with all the leftovers we had. Several of the Freedom Trail stops are within a couple of blocks, very nice! Carlos was great at responding to questions. If we ever get back to Boston, we will definitely stay here again. We absolutely had a terrific time! Thanks for sharing your Condo with us.

Amazing Find in Boston's North End!
Amazing Find in Boston's North End!
My mom & I enjoyed staying in this cute apartment. It was perfect for us to walk the Freedom Trail, walk to the water and enjoy our time together without being stuck in a hotel room. Everything was perfect, owner's have thought of everything you might need - we found great places to eat (loved the diner around the corner) and felt extremely comfortable walking through the Boston streets. Owners were quick to return our deposit and made it so great to use their home. Thank you again!

The location for our recent stay in Boston was fantastic! The condo was in a quiet area of the North End, just around the corner from the Old North Church. Everything was within walking distance....the restaurants, the metro, the train station, and of course, the Freedom Trail. The owners were very helpful in answering ALL of our questions. The condo was clean, but small. It is located on the second floor, so carrying luggage was challenging, but I would definitely recommend this condo as a great value. If we return to Boston, we'll definitely plan on staying there.

Great affordable alternative in North End

This was a great place for our annual mother/daughter trip. Nice and quiet after a busy day in the city and close to the T so it's easy to get anywhere cheaply. The condo was spotless, everything worked and was comfortable. Highly recommend and will likely rent again for weekends in Boston.

If you are considering visiting Boston, we say GO and stay HERE. Boston is a wonderful city to visit and this was a great place for us to stay. First about Boston, there us so much to do and see all within walking distance or a T ride. My husband and I and our two sons,23 and 20 ,all love history,and Boston is like Disney World for history lovers. We especially enjoyed touring the USS Constitution and the extended tour of The Old North Church. Taking the ferry to the Boston Harbor Islands was a great way to spend the day too. We could have stayed another week and not run out of things to do. We mostly walked everywhere, to Boston Common and Public Gardens, the entire Freedom Trail (which basically the condo is on), the Prudential Center, the site of the Boston Tea Party and over to the Bunker Hill Monument, but we made up for it by eating. There is SO MUCH good food in Boston and especially the North End. Our favorites were Regina's Pizza and Mikes Pastry. Theo's for breakfast was very good too. Which is one reason you should stay at this condo, you can walk (in about 1-3 minutes) to tons of amazing places to eat. The condo was spotlessly clean when we arrived and everything was in working order and as described. It was very comfortable for the four of us and I would not hesitate to stay here again. We needed to contact the owner while we were there and he answered on the first phone call and was very helpful.

Great location! Couldn't have been in a better location, although parking was a bear. Great homebase within walking distance of so many attractions. Enjoyed the bakeries! The condo was clean and well equipped. Will definately make this our "home away from home" when visiting family in Boston.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are retired high-school teachers who live in Tallahassee, Florida. This year, we celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary. Our son and daughter-in-law and daughter and son-in-law along with grandchildren also live in Tallahassee. We love to travel and enjoy family and friend time.
Why the Owner Chose Boston:
We visited Boston to celebrate Wedding Anniversary #39 and fell in love with the city. We stayed in the North End, where we bought our condo, and could swear that we were in Italy when we walked the neighborhood. Boston offers so much history and so many sights to see. The food was delicious and the ability to walk almost the entire city appealed to us. There are so many different activities to keep us busy.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy the ability to get out and walk the city, seeing so many historic places in the process. We have visited during all seasons of the year and find it to be beautiful in each. There are so many restaurants and bakeries within minutes of the condo. Somehow, I never cook, which suits me fine! The T is an excellent subway system; we don't need a car. I suppose the excitement of the city is our favorite part.
