"My daughter and I were looking for a spot which would put us walking distance to the attractions and afford us a bit of the local history as well. This condo was the perfect fit. Brick walls, well appointed for our needs, and truly within walking distance to wonderful restaurants and ALL NIGHT bakeries! It does have 4 flights of stairs to climb so we didn't feel bad at all in our food indulgences!"Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: December 2, 2014View listing
"My husband and I just arrived back home from our week in Boston. We fell in love with Boston and are planning our trip back next summer! :) This apartment was perfect and exactly what we were looking for! It is clean, safe, beautiful, and the perfect home away from home. It is in walking distance of the city, two T stations (Cambridge Street and Park Street), is right by the state house, a five minute walk to the Boston Common and so much more! I highly recommend staying here for your Boston vacation!"Guest: Allie T. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 14, 2014View listing
"I recently had to stay in the North End for a week to take licensing exams. I was looking for a rental with a great location in the North End and a quiet place to study. The 'Skinny House' easily provided both. The house was absolutely gorgeous and spacious inside. Do not be fooled about space due to the skinny exterior. The interior offers space inside for everyone to rexlax comfortably. The master bed is a delight to sleep in. The owners were also a pleasure to correspond with, and very easy to get in touch with. My family and I will most definitely make this a yearly trip. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to enjoy the beautiful North End of Boston. Its location and price simply cannot be beat."Guest: Chris Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: November 12, 2014View listing
"A charming apartment, I originally thought it a long way from amenities, but soon realised it was not. So much character in the building, the floorboards scars tell a story. Terry was approachable and helped with everything. If we ever come back, would love to stay here again."Guest: Andrew W. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 21, 2014View listing
