  • Beacon Hill Studio apt

    "We stayed in the Beacon Hill apartment for 3 nights. It is in the perfect location - the streets are beautiful and everything you need is within walking distance. We found the apartment very clean, towels and sheets clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our only small issue was the heat inside the apartment - but we just turned the air con on and it was fine. The lighting in the bathroom was also quite dark"

  • Great little spot in East Boston

    "My husband and I stayed here in celebration of our anniversary. It was the first time we'd been away alone in a long time. And we weren't disappointed. This spot on Marginal Street is everything we expected; just as advertised. The owners are very pleasant and friendly and willing to lend a helping hand. John said he was available by text if we needed any advice while touring Boston! The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. And, it was so great to be so close to the T. When we first arrived we took a walk to the park down the road. This park was such a little gem with beautiful harbor views. Great for a picnic. The apartment itself was clean and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable. We only wished we had more time to sample all the great food in East Boston and beyond. As it was, our first night we went to Italian Express in East Boston right around the block. This place had a homey welcoming atmosphere. The second night we were in Quincy Market and sat outside to eat take out after a long walking tour of Boston. A walk to North Boston during the day was lovely. We also visited the North Church and a little printing press nearby where the proprietor re-enacts printing as it was done when the original Declaration of Independence was created . We went into Paul Revere’s house. So much history and we barely scratched the surface... Oh and don't forget the little bakery next store to Italian Express. We stopped her to stock up on pastry for the ride home. Thanks John and Melissa for being as advertised!"

  • Boston Weekend

    "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."
