"We had the most wonderful experience and renting this home for our family vacation was perfect! The house itself is beautiful and was nice and clean. The rooms were perfect for our large group. The kitchen was well stocked and had all the utensils we needed. Perfect location.. I ran at the park every morning and along the shore. We plan to do it again soon!"

"The location of this comfortable condo just couldn't get any better. The Boston Common and picturesque public garden are just across the street as are the hop on hop off trolleys, tourist info, and the start of the Freedom Trail. Much of historic Boston is a short walk in one direction: Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library are a short walk in the opposite direction. There is also no shortage of fine restaurants, bakeries and drinking holes in the area and we had some very good food at restaurants just minutes away (Grotto was particularly memorable).
The condo itself is well appointed and comfortable and Peter was easy to contact and showed us around the condo personally. We were delighted with our stay and would recommend it to others."

"Had a nice one night stay on the Golden Slipper. Gretchen is friendly, had good communication with us and was super flexible about our uncertain arrival time. The location was super, so near to the north end with all those tasty restaurants. It was even handy to Logan, we called the Water Taxi and they picked us up from the dock (but allow 20-30 min. of 'slush time' since you have to take the free shuttle bus to actually get to the terminals.).
Staying on the boat was comfy, beds good and nice little deck on the aft for an evening cocktail and breakfast. The fridge even had a few breakfast goodies. There's a Starbucks and well stocked (but expensive) grocer within a 5 min. walk. Would definitely consider staying there again."

Brownstone apartment within walking of the Commons.
"My family of 5 (me, my mother & 3 young boys) stayed here for 4 nights in Aug 2015. We really enjoyed our stay! Check in was easy and everything was ready for us! There is an A/C unit in the living room and one in each bedroom. (I never noticed the noise from AC other than normal) In the largest bedroom is a stacked washer/dryer combo that was very nice to have! We were very comfy temperature wise and actually turned the A/C off a bit at night. My three young boys didnt have to be careful (although we still tried to be courteous) with stomping being upstairs as these apartments are solid.
Yes the apartment is old. Most brownstone apartments are in Boston. I agree that the bathroom and kitchen could use a little more of a deep clean (vent a hood & bathroom shelves for example) but the floors were spotless (even under the beds) and bedding was fresh (extra bedding is also available)! The bathroom sink had some issues draining but everything else was good. The tub was nice and deep with lots of hot water. Had plenty of outlets available and even had games etc for kids tucked neatly inside of drawers! There is a park at the south end of the street and at the north side was a very nice underground parking garage. (Pilgrims Parking i think)
If you understand parking in Boston then they told us that there are a few "visitor" parking spaces available on Dwight street but we didnt use them.
There isnt any views so to speak from the windows but we were only there at night and stayed busy all day! The neighborhood felt safe and had a pizza/sub a block away going west and a CVS east a few blocks. There is also a 7-eleven two blocks North. Wifi worked good and boys enjoyed the TV although they were so tired by the time we got back that they didnt watch much.
Thank you James for being part of one of the best vacations we have had! Sorry we didnt get to meet you but we appreciate your professionalism!"
