Great stay in Boston
"My wife and I stayed in this condo August 15 - 20, 2015. The condo is in a perfect location, right next to the State House on the Freedon Trail and right cross the street from Boston Commons. The T (subway) is right down the street. Walking and using the transit system in Boston is the way to go. Renting a car is unnecessary and would be a burden due to parking difficulties. The condo was clean, the bed was very comfortable, new kitchen, and a great rooftop deck on the 10th floor which overlooks the city. It was hot when we were there, there were 2 fans in the living room and a brand new air conditioner in the bedroom, so staying comfortable was not a problem. Fenway Park is 2 miles away, Cheers bar, the North End (Italian District) all very close. The owner of the condo, Jonathan, was incredible. He was quick to respond to every email, very on top of everything. You could feel he cared about treating his guests well. I would highly recommend Jonathan and his condo to anybody who wishes to visit Boston."

"Had a nice one night stay on the Golden Slipper. Gretchen is friendly, had good communication with us and was super flexible about our uncertain arrival time. The location was super, so near to the north end with all those tasty restaurants. It was even handy to Logan, we called the Water Taxi and they picked us up from the dock (but allow 20-30 min. of 'slush time' since you have to take the free shuttle bus to actually get to the terminals.).
Staying on the boat was comfy, beds good and nice little deck on the aft for an evening cocktail and breakfast. The fridge even had a few breakfast goodies. There's a Starbucks and well stocked (but expensive) grocer within a 5 min. walk. Would definitely consider staying there again."

"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."

"After a six hour flight, this little condo was a welcome place to rest! It took no time at all to get there from the airport. We arrived in the wee hours of the morning to find the beds very easy to set up and very comfortable. The shower heated up pretty quickly and had plenty of water pressure. Matter of fact, I liked it better than mine at home! We found several guide books and maps on the book shelf to help us decide where to go and what to do. Everything was so close by, we didn't spend much time in route. The Gaskins had already sent wonderful notes on things to do and places to eat. Ernesto's Pizza and Mike's Pastry were some of our favorites on their list. Basically this condo was a great place to come back to after a long day of walking around the city. Sometimes we cooked in, sometimes we ate out. Both were a great experience. The Gaskins were very responsive to all communication and provided us with a very nice stay. Next time we're in Boston, we'll stay here again!"
