  • Longwood Studio 15

    "Stayed for 3 nights from Oct. 9 - Oct 11th. Great location for me as my son lives in Allston and it was an easy train ride. T-line very easy 5-8 minute walk. One think I'd advise. The apartment complex is a bit isolated if you don't know where you are going (sorry even with directions I may have gotten lost). However, if your home computer has Google Earth (and if not a library will have it), just look up the address. It gives a fantastic bird's eye or street level view of the entire area. I arrived late at night and had no problem finding the place as I had already "seen" the area on Google Earth and knew exactly where to go. It does help to Google Fenway T-Station first (if you come on the train) to see where you will stop. The apartment was clean but nothing fancy - no probs there. It was good enough weather that I needed neither the heater or air conditioning, so can't say how they work. I would consider the same place again if that helps."

  • Skinny House

    "Fabulous property, fabulous location. Very clean and well maintained. We will never stay in downtown Boston again. The Skinny House is surprisingly spacious and quiet inside. It's very well thought out because, I think, the owners once lived and raised children there themselves. There is lots of storage, a modern kitchen, and so many places to sleep. It's fun to watch Copp's Hill Burying Ground across the street day and night and to have strangers taking pictures of "your" house. The neighborhood is incredible--wonderful little stores and lots of opportunities to hear and speak Italian. We had a perfect stay. This is not a house for babies or for people who can't climb stairs. We are in our 70's and had no problem with the stairs, so age in and of itself should not affect one's decision about whether or not to rent. And, as veterans of the Freedom Trail, we did not want to walk it again as one does when educating children. It was much more fun to live the trail--to be able to go to the Copps Hill Burying Ground and look at graves a few at a time or to Faneuil Hall or to the Old North Church. It's also very easy to walk downtown or along the waterfront from the Skinny House. We came to Boston with a car, and while we did not drive it in town, parking in a nearby garage was easy and relatively affordable. It was less than 10 minutes to return the car to the airport. And the North Station "T" is close--very close, so you can easily go all over town from the house. If you can rent this house, don't miss out. Living there is a unique (in the best sense of the word) experience."

  • Quiet retreat

    "My husband and I stayed at the studio over marathon weekend and found it to be just what we'd hoped for. Though small, it was perfect for us- the bed was very comfortable and the condo was clean and stocked with everything we needed. We did not take advantage of the kitchen (and probably should have to go easy on the wallet) but it appeared to have everything one could need to cook. Correction: we used the oven to reheat our fantastic Regina pizza (order take out at the original Regina nearby and avoid the line). Since the mass of people on this weekend seems to be concentrated around hotels and the Commons, this north end condo feels like stepping away from the chaos to a peaceful and private retreat. Excellent restaurants are PLENTIFUL and history is all around you. The stairs are a killer after running a marathon, but I was prepared for that. We did a LOT over 4-5 days- most is within walking distance and others are easily accessed by subway. Carlos was a pleasure to deal with and the transactions were easy. WHEN we return to Boson, we will gladly stay here again if it is available."

  • True Boston Experience!

    "We visited Boston for just over 2 months for work and were really lucky to have found this place to stay! The location was perfect for us. It was a neat experience to stay in the quaint and charming Beacon Hill neighbourhood. We could walk everywhere we needed and wanted to go. Whole Foods is a 3 minute walk away for groceries and pre-prepared meals, there are numerous pharmacies nearby for essentials, and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby as well. Over our stay we walked to nearly all of the Boston "must see" places and landmarks from here. It is also close to several "T" stations (subway) for transportation. We were pleasantly surprised by how well equipped the place was, even for our long term stay, and even through the snowiest winter in Boston's history! It has everything you need for bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen as well as books, games, TV, and Netflix to keep you entertained in case you get snowed in (otherwise go out and explore the beautiful historic surroundings!) It is a clean, well kept, beautiful unit on the fourth floor. We knew before we arrived that there would be no elevator but managed the stairs just fine, even hauling our 3 month old son and all of his gear up and down. I would definitely not let this deter you from staying in this little Beacon Hill gem. It's location truly can't be beat. I feel we got a true Boston experience staying here and I would highly recommend it to others!"
