"OK, I don't know if I should write a review about this place or the two wonderful owners, Deb and Angus. I've rented many accommodations from VRBO and other sites, but my wife and I have never had as pleasant of an experience as we did with Deb, Angus, and there home. We were greeted by Deb and Angus out on the street for a helpful orientation of parking and the beautiful, safe neighborhood. From there we got the tour of the building, and the rental. They went out of their way to make us feel like this was our home. After we parted ways, they showed back up with some goodies from the local deli to get us started. Who does that!? They did. My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary, and after an exhaustive search on VRBO this seemed like the right place for us. I couldn't have imagined how pleased I was going to be at the time I booked. I hope to keep in touch with Deb and Angus as friends. That's the kind of people they are. So, if you're looking for a place in Boston, no worries about what you're getting here. You won't be disappointed. Thanks my friends!"

"Our family gathered again for the Harvard home opener in football! (We have a senior there this year). We love everything about Symphony Rd. Lovely brownstone in the most convenient location! It is beautifully appointed and roomy and comfortable. Some easy to walk to great restaurants and shopping and the Fenway experience make it the best choice in Boston! You will want to return again and again!! Thanks Tim and Natalie for sharing your great home."

Brownstone apartment within walking of the Commons.
"My family of 5 (me, my mother & 3 young boys) stayed here for 4 nights in Aug 2015. We really enjoyed our stay! Check in was easy and everything was ready for us! There is an A/C unit in the living room and one in each bedroom. (I never noticed the noise from AC other than normal) In the largest bedroom is a stacked washer/dryer combo that was very nice to have! We were very comfy temperature wise and actually turned the A/C off a bit at night. My three young boys didnt have to be careful (although we still tried to be courteous) with stomping being upstairs as these apartments are solid.
Yes the apartment is old. Most brownstone apartments are in Boston. I agree that the bathroom and kitchen could use a little more of a deep clean (vent a hood & bathroom shelves for example) but the floors were spotless (even under the beds) and bedding was fresh (extra bedding is also available)! The bathroom sink had some issues draining but everything else was good. The tub was nice and deep with lots of hot water. Had plenty of outlets available and even had games etc for kids tucked neatly inside of drawers! There is a park at the south end of the street and at the north side was a very nice underground parking garage. (Pilgrims Parking i think)
If you understand parking in Boston then they told us that there are a few "visitor" parking spaces available on Dwight street but we didnt use them.
There isnt any views so to speak from the windows but we were only there at night and stayed busy all day! The neighborhood felt safe and had a pizza/sub a block away going west and a CVS east a few blocks. There is also a 7-eleven two blocks North. Wifi worked good and boys enjoyed the TV although they were so tired by the time we got back that they didnt watch much.
Thank you James for being part of one of the best vacations we have had! Sorry we didnt get to meet you but we appreciate your professionalism!"
