"OK, I don't know if I should write a review about this place or the two wonderful owners, Deb and Angus. I've rented many accommodations from VRBO and other sites, but my wife and I have never had as pleasant of an experience as we did with Deb, Angus, and there home. We were greeted by Deb and Angus out on the street for a helpful orientation of parking and the beautiful, safe neighborhood. From there we got the tour of the building, and the rental. They went out of their way to make us feel like this was our home. After we parted ways, they showed back up with some goodies from the local deli to get us started. Who does that!? They did. My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary, and after an exhaustive search on VRBO this seemed like the right place for us. I couldn't have imagined how pleased I was going to be at the time I booked. I hope to keep in touch with Deb and Angus as friends. That's the kind of people they are. So, if you're looking for a place in Boston, no worries about what you're getting here. You won't be disappointed. Thanks my friends!"

"This home is exactly what you need to have a fantastic getaway vacation. So relaxing to sit and watch the lobster fishermen check their traps early in the morning & in the evening watch the sun set from every window, in this wonderfully laid out house. It has 3 levels & very private with all the amenities. It is located on an island setting but close to so much activity and nearby beaches. We loved taking the train into Boston, visiting all the historical sites along the "Freedom Trail." The seaside communities of Salem, Swampscott & Marblehead are all close by and offer an array of great restaurants in the area. Of course my favorite highlight was to cook our own lobsters in the big kitchen in the house (there are actually 2)! The separate living arrangements make it ideal for couples or larger families as well. Ocean views and sounds are amazing, and comfortable bedrooms make for a restful night. Plenty of room for any event and socializing. We would definitely come back to this beautiful and unique venue."

"My wife and I were looking for a place to stay in Boston for a weekend getaway. We wanted an alternative to the expensive hotels, so we could spend our money on great food and seeing the city. This was a FANTASTIC option - very reasonably priced, and location was perfect - the house was a 3 minute walk to the T stop, and downtown Boston was a 10 minute metro ride away. We also used Uber and were able to hop around the city, never paying more than $15 for a ride. Exactly what we were looking for in terms of location and price. We did have a local tell us that the Roxbury Crossing neighborhood doesn't have the best reputation, but we had absolutely no problems walking to and from the metro at all hours.
Terry really did everything possible to make this a great place to stay. The bed was really comfortable, the linens and amenities (like coffee, shampoos and soaps, etc) were hotel-quality (or better), and the room was cosy and perfect for us. The owner has taken painstaking steps to make you feel at home - from handwritten maps, to personal suggestions for restaurants and things to see. Check in/check out was a breeze.
I absolutely recommend this place to stay for those who want to experience Boston but don't want all of their dollars paying for expensive hotels. We would stay here again in a heartbeat."

"This was a well appointed apartment with great air conditioning! The apartment is in a very central location and we were able to get everywhere we needed to quickly and could walk almost anywhere. The neighborhood was lovely and we were able to pick great restaurants within walking distance. The three flights of stairs were a little bit daunting at first but it helped to keep it even more quiet and relaxing once you were up there. Highly recommend!"
