Are you from out of town? Allston is West Boston, a part of the city of Boston. Allston is connected to Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods by Commonwealth Ave., Storrow Drive and the Mass. Pike [90]. As you move from Back Bay to North Allston, or Lower Allston as it is sometimes called, the houses change from traditional brownstone row houses to a mix of 1880 - 1920 Victorian wood houses.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are your hosts - Richard and Victoria. We have been traveling together for 18 years, and we have been Boston landlords since 2005. This studio is the top floor of our house - we live downstairs. Our standards are 'FIRST CLASS and FIVE STAR' and we won't accept less. Since we started doing short term rentals it has become our passion to provide the cleanest, most tastefully furnished, and simply best accommodations available. In every circumstance we personally guarantee that everything will exceed your expectations. Every detail has been carefully though out and implemented to ensure the best possible stay.

Why the Owner Chose Boston:
We do rent quite a few apartments, but this is our only short-term vacation rental in Allston. We decided to rent our third floor studio short term to have the flexibility to allow our own family to stay there. The short term rentals have been a huge success and we just love doing it. The neighborhood is a hidden gem in Boston - it is just outside of Harvard Square, and a few minutes to Back Bay. Being so close to everything with no traffic noise and only the sounds of birds and crickets amazes most guests, and that's just one of the things we love about this location. Now, this is not our only short term rental, and we do have other units around town if you want to be in Back Bay, Fenway or the South End - Just ask.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The studio is very comfortable. Somehow, everyone says it seems like home when they get there. Some guests check in, and don't even leave again until they check out. Others use the location as a central launching pad to explore the city. Being right next to Boston University and a few minutes from the Harvard Business School, as well as a short walk to Harvard Square, the studio is perfect for anyone with short-term plans at one of the universities. The studio is also right by the new Allston branch of the Boston Public Library and features a new Library Park just across North Harvard Street.
