Perfect Location To Explore Boston
"We came with our family to take a cruise out of Boston and found this charming historical house had such great reviews we just had to try it. It was indeed everything that the owner and reviews say it is. The photos are accurate and the house has been beautifully renovated in this charming historical neighborhood. Everything you want is within walking distance, great restaurants, shopping is a short bus ride away and you can buy a 7 day "Charlie Ticket" for the transit system that allows you to ride the bus, ferry and subway for a low price of $19 Adults, kids ride free. Donna went out of her way to meet us on our arrival, the street in front of her house was being resurfaced, she told us exactly how to get to the closest side street where she met us and helped with all our stuff. It is an extremely private house even though the owners live on the lower floors, you never seen anyone because you have your own private entrance. Wonderful historical experience for our family and would highly recommend it. Mahalo Donna and Max from your new friends from Hawaii"

"This apartment was perfect for us an our 4 year old daughter. The location was close to many great eating spots and grocery stores and downtown was about a 1-2 mile walk. We passed a couple of nice playgrounds on the way into downtown that our daughter loved and the subway system was pretty easy to navigate. The shower was a little tight, but the water temperature and pressure were excellent. Would definitely stay there again next time we are in Boston!"

"Located in the heart of Boston (Beacon Hill), steps away from MGH, Mass Eye & Ear, downtown and everything else in Boston city centre. The host was nice, replied quickly, and the check-in/check-out was hastle-free. The apt was small, but included everything we needed."

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!"
