Recent Boston reviews
Beacon Street Rental was Amazing
"My family of 4 visited Boston for the first time and we were delighted to find the accommodations beyond our expectations. This location on Beacon St. was beautifully situated within walking distance of Boston Commons, The Prudential Building, Fenway and a walk along the Charles River. This was a much better option than a hotel.
The condo was larger than I expected and had one private room, pull out bed and air mattress available. We did not cook much but the kitchen was well equipped. There is a corner market down the street that has many convenience items and stays open until midnight. I will rent this again.
Pros: Location, safe area, large bedroom and living space
Cons: Extremely small bathroom, air conditioner wall unit in bedroom blew in your face (The cons would never prevent me from recommending this location.)"

"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.

"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!"

"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."
