"Love this great apartment! It was very clean and comfortable, and would definitely stay here again. I was visiting Boston with my daughter to look at several different colleges. The location was perfect! It is in the center of all of the action - close to a grocery store, Fenway, restaurants and a brand new Target. We easily walked to a few schools, and then used Uber to get to locations that we were tight on time. The apartment has ample space and a lot of natural light. Although we didn't cook, the kitchen seemed well equipped. This is the place to stay if you want to feel like a real Bostonian!"

"The home and owner are very nice. There was plenty of room for us in this unit.
We had 6 adults and everyone had privacy and large enough common areas to hang out.
The upstairs had some cooling difficulty but Aihua made sure that we had fans and ideas on how to direct the AC.
The neighborhood you drive through to get to the house is questionable. We wanted to use the T but didn't trust walking in this area to get to it. Aihua assured us that the area is safe but I can admit that outside of the gates on the property; it didn't feel that way."

"This was my first time in Boston, and I had no idea what part of town or where to stay. Once I decided on the north part of Boston, I carefully researched places to stay. I ended up finding the Skinny House. And, oh what a find! It's an excellent place to stay. Perfect part of town, perfect location. The house itself is comfortable, inviting, and quite charming. If you're challenged by stairs, this might not be the best location. I had no trouble with them. It's on the Freedom Trail, across the street from Copp's Burial Ground. When people are on tours, they frequently stop in front of the house to look and take pictures. Don't be freaked out if this happens! It's really quite fun. The house is just up the street from the old North Church, and the "little Italy" part of Boston, all within walking distance. A great Italian restaurant is Antico Forno. Best pizza! The "Going Bananas" grocery story, down Hull Street, then a right at Salem, carries many things. A tad bit pricey though.
Overall, I would stay at the Skinny House again. It's a very fun place to stay, and Spencer is very easy to communicate with. Oh, and the house manager, Olivia, is delightful. She stopped in after we'd been there a couple of days to check in with us to see if everything was okay.

"So glad we were able to book this condo, with its oh-so-comfy beds and linens. What a way to end each day full of sightseeing in the walkable city of Boston! Also, we were glad to use the T to get around since Boston's traffic can be a driving nightmare. Ashmont station is about a 15 minute walk from the condo, so we used a week Charlie Card to get almost everywhere. Using the Lyft app to summon a friendly driver was an easy, quick, and cheap way to get to Logan when we left for home. Thanks, Marsha & Dave."
