Return Visit for Family Wedding
"This house is a gem! When our daughter set her wedding date, I knew I wanted to bring the rest of our family to 8 Symphony where I’d stayed previously with a group of female friends. This time it was another group of 7, but with three generations.
The house is as described with accompanying photos. The spacious kitchen was the favorite gathering spot for several reasons—growing teenagers who were often hungry for one. Having Whole Foods right around the block was very welcome. Early November was mild so we were able to take advantage of the outside space for a couple of days.
We all bought “T” passes and used the very convenient Symphony T stop, but we also walked to Back Bay attractions. Some favorites: The Boston Public Library, Trinity Church’s Friday organ recital, Burdick’s chocolate shop, the Green Dragon around the corner from the Old Union Oyster House and the Ryles Jazz Club, Cambridge.
I’ve already stayed here twice and would certainly do it yet again. Tim is very responsive."

"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."

"The apartment is convenient to many shops, restaurants, nightlife and the T - all are within walking distance. Yet it's in a residential area and it's quiet.
We had six adults visiting Boston and the apartment was very comfortable for all of us.
The owner is responsive, easy to work with and accommodating."

"We enjoyed staying in a brownstone. Up one flight of stairs, plus the entrance steps, the apartment has good, functioning facilities and quite adequate storage space. Good shower and bed. Temperature was an issue for us since the building’s heating was not yet on. There are some shops and restaurants close by, but the supermarkets are about 15 minutes walk away. Bus 43 runs past the front door, but don’t trust it – the subway is 10 minutes away and is more reliable. We were met punctually and introduced to the apartment by the owner’s agent."
