                        Great condo on quiet street in the heart of Boston, as described, minutes walk from everything. We didn't know the South end well but really enjoyed the convenience to restaurants, T, public garden, theatre district etc...Very clean and well appointed unit. 2 Bedrooms on lower level worked great, nice kitchen, comfortable dining and sitting room. Everything we needed and more for longer stays, would defintely consider again. Only challenge is parking but there are 2 garages very close by. Very friendly and attentive owner, provided list of "to do's" and called the 1st day to check if all was OK! Freedom trail tour, Bee Hive, Atlantic Fish, Regina's and Shear Madness (teenagers loved it!) were all great!

                        The apartment is in a very convenient location. This was our first trip to Boston. We walked to Copley square to get on the Duck Tour. We walked to Boston Commons and walked the Freedom Trail through Little Italy.we walked to Tremont Street for food. We went to a Red Sox game by ca. Our car sat in the garage for 3 days The apartment was comfortable and cozy for 4 adults and a 10 month old infant. The high chair came in handy. The owner was very responsive and called to see if everything was ok soon after we arrived. The only inconvenience was the bathrooms. the half bath was small and dark. And the full bath was in the master bedroom. But that may be the price to pay for an apartment with a reasonable rate in the city . We would stay here again and would recommend this apt to friend.

                        Our family of 5 (two adults and three daughters ages 11, 14 & 17) enjoyed our stay in this condo. The condo was clean and the description of the condo was accurate. Christina was a pleasure to work with and made sure that our family understood the layout of the condo - which we really appreciated. Overall, the condo met our needs and we enjoyed our stay. This was a great alternative to staying in a hotel room. As described, the condo is in an excellent location to explore Boston. It is a short walk to many restaurants and to the Newbury Street shopping area (where we spent way too much time). It is also very convenient to access the various tourist sites that Boston has to offer. One of the things we enjoyed most was simply walking along the beautiful streets in the neighborhood and sampling the numerous restaurants in the area. The ability to experience living in an historic Boston neighborhood is something that you don't get to experience when staying at a hotel. Christina has assembled a very handy binder with some excellent visitor information which was very useful. We would recommend this condo to others and would gladly stay here again when visiting Boston.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                        Enjoyed our stay in Boston. The condo worked out very well and the owner was extremely easy to work with. All in condo was as advertised. Full of amenities and extras on Boston, including info and even charlie cards to use on subway. Good location for access to all transportation, and easily walkable to commons. Very nice, safe, quiet neighborhood.

                        What a wonderful stay we had in this South End apartment! We were just steps away from excellent restaurants and shops in this beautiful and safe neighborhood. The apartment itself was very spacious, clean and filled with all the amenities one could ask for. We especially appreciated having complimentary wi-fi, a washer and dryer, and a fully-equipped kitchen. It was an excellent "home base" for all of our activities in Boston, and the owners are very cordial, professional, and easy to work with(check-in and check-out were a breeze!). Many thanks to Christina and Josh; we hope to come back soon!

                        We are a family of 4 who enjoyed our stay in this well appointed 2 bedroom condo. Our teenagers/young adults were happy to have their own beds to sleep in. The location of the condo was perfect for us as we moved our daughter into Boston University. It is very close to the "T" and is within walking distance to shopping and parks and downtown. The condo was clean and we appreciated having many tv channels to choose from, the WiFi at our fingertips and the books to read. Our days were so busy that we didn't have time to enjoy coffee on the deck, but wish that we had!

                        We had a great Time in Boston. The Condo is well equipped and perfectly located so it is very convenient to discover the Town. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Boston. L'appartement est parfait pour une famille avec 3 enfants. Il est très bien situé et la ville peut se visiter à pied en suivant les itinéraires du Guide Vert. Tout est fourni ( shampooing, lessive, produits ménagers): on y trouve donc les avantages de l'hôtel et de la location!!

                        My wife and I shared this apartment with another couple, and everyone was very impressed. The place was clean and spacious. There was plenty of room to relax, and ample privacy. Supplies were well-stocked, and there were plenty of extra towels. The washing machine works well, but the dryer does take a long time to dry clothes. The neighborhood was safe and friendly. The South End has many wonderful diners and pubs. The place is literally walking distance to everything in Boston. The owner was gracious and helpful. We hope to rent here again in the future.

                        This condo is a perfect base for exploring Boston. It's spacious, with a large living room, kitchen, and dining room on the main floor, and two bedrooms on the lower floor, down some fairly steep stairs. It's well-equipped, clean, and elegant, with hardwood floors throughout, and all amenities, including a good selection of movies and even board games. The owner was very helpful both before and during our stay, and responded very quickly to our one request after arrival. There's a little visitor's kit, with not only brochures and neighborhood advice, but also parking passes and "Charlie Cards" for using the subway. Actually, the parking passes are unnecessary, as you don't need a car staying here. There's a great deal within walking distance, including the Boston Common, the Prudential Center, the Freedom Trail, and a large number of good restaurants. It's also handy to two subway lines. We very much enjoyed our stay, and will be back next time we're in Boston.
