"This was an outstanding property! After staying in mediocre places in DC and NYC this place was a huge improvement. It was elegant, large, very well kept and in a great location in the Back Bay near the Hynes T station. We arrived quite early but were able to stow our luggage on site. I would stay here again if we get back to Boston! Rarely give 5 stars to anything but this property deserves it."Guest: Neil Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 29, 2014View listing
"This apartment was lovely, and the owner was extremely accommodating. The pictures do not do it justice, as the ceilings are very high which makes the space seem even larger than it is. I comfortably stayed here with six friends. We made good use of the kitchen and the beds, including the sofa bed, were very cozy. The location of the apartment was fantastic- we were within walking distance of great sites, shops, and restaurants. Additionally, the parking garage was less than a ten minute walk away which we found convenient. Would absolutely recommend this apartment, and would stay again when traveling with a group in the future!"Guest: Joanna W. Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 15, 2014View listing
"We stayed in this apartment for 3 nights and found it very welcoming and comfortable for 3 adults. We didn't quite work out the shower, but all managed to get wet! We really appreciated the extensive notes on the apartment, nearby restaurants and where to park. The apartment was clean, the couch was fantastic, and overall it was an enjoyable experience."Guest: Joanne B. Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 14, 2014View listing
"This was the perfect place to stay - homey, close to public transportation, and quiet. It was a quick T ride or a nice walk to the Copley Square convention center where I had a conference. The family was able to have a base to explore some of the off the beaten path beauties of Boston - Olmsted's emerald necklace gardens and the fine arts museum. It was very convenient for our rental car with lots of free street parking. The owners are wonderful."Guest: Elissa Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 1, 2014View listing
