  • Fabulous!

    "Perfect location. We felt like one of the locals. We walked everywhere. Darling condo, suited my husband and I perfectly. Tons of nearby restaurants. The owners are wonderful, they laid everything out in detail making it so very easy. We gave them the highest rating for a reason. It couldn't have gone any smoother. We are looking forward to staying there again. It truly was a wonderful experience."

  • spacious, full of light apartment with a great host, on an amazing road

    "we stayed at the apartment on maple avenue for a week whilst visiting boston and getting married at the nearby cambridge city hall. we loved the space, the period fittings, the kitchen full of light, the immaculate bathroom. this place is very clean and feels much bigger than a studio, rather a one bed apartment. the host is extremely pleasant, very generous and helpful on so many levels. thoroughly recommended to enjoy downtown boston at around 15 mins on the t train and harvard campus at 10 mins walk. maple avenue is one of the best street we have seen in boston, leafy, quiet and posh."

  • Stayed Almost 1 Month for Nearby Surgery - PERFECT CHOICE!

    "My husband & I stayed for nearly 1 month (Dec '13) while I recovered from surgery @ nearby Brigham & Women's Hospital. We originally chose the rental for proximity to B&W, it's 1st-floor location, minimum stairs. Some notes I hope you find helpful... *Incredibly clean, and I'm a total nut about cleanliness *HUGE bed *Reliable & fast Wi-Fi *Listing is true to description; in fact, we were surprised & impressed by the apartment size when we arrived *Richard (owner we primarily spoke to) is professional, efficient, incredibly fast w/ response time *Our one minor issue was fixed immediately, conveniently *Owners were happy to talk to us whenever, or leave us totally alone *Great place for "medical tourists," as it's a 5-min-max cab ride to Longwood hospital area, good area for post-surgery walking *Location is awesome for everyone! You're right "in the mix;" walking, cab & "T" access to ANY ATTRACTION *Handy shops w/in 4 blocks: Whole Foods, Economy Hardware, Wine shop, Dry Cleaners, Art Supplies, different banks, CVS, USPS + TONS more *Yummy Food w/in 4 blocks: Pavement Coffeehouse, Ginger Exchange, Ichiban Yakitori, Boston Shawarma + TONS more *Easy walk to Symphony Hall, Prudential, Newbury St, Fenway, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Museum of Fine Arts, many schools/colleges *There's a 24-hr security guard who walks the street, which was very safe in our experience *Parking a car here is costly, complicated *The 'hood is thriving & diverse; populated by students, artists, older folks, musicians, professionals, bums, professors, hospital staff -- everyone! *The street & apts are charming, pretty, very "Boston" -- you'll certainly hear your neighbors, especially students, but we didn't find it to be a problem... If you're looking for a 100% perfectly sound-proof environment, Boston is not for you *We never waited more than 5 min when we called a cab *While the tub/shower unit are older, the rest of the bath is modern & clean, great water pressure *Linens = plentiful, clean, nice *Sink/oven&stove/fridge/dishwasher/washer&dryer unit all seem new, worked well *TV's are new, have big cable packages, but no DVD *Doors/locks are new & sturdy *Lots of windows & light *Hallway & exterior of building are maintained daily, super clean. We stayed almost a month, so we had a ton of time to find problems... but we really didn't! We would rent this unit again & we would highly recommend it to family/friends! Thanks again to Richard for making the whole stay SO EASY! 5 STARS!"

  • Amazing house, amazing location, amazing vacation!

    "Do not hesitate to rent the Skinny House for your Boston vacation! Besides the thrill of staying in the midst of history, the food in the North End is delicious. The nearby T stops made getting to the house from the airport simple, as well as to Fenway Park, MIT and Harvard. The USS Constitution, Bunker Hill, Faneuil Hall, ,Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, Old North Church, Paul Revere's Home, and many other sites are within walking distance. The house itself had everything we needed ... It didn't feel too small for 2 adults and 2 college age boys. It was very clean on check-in and the washer, dryer, stove, microwave , dishwasher and tv all worked perfectly. The owners were very helpful and quick in their communications. Our flight needed to be changed a few days before we were to arrive (my mistake) and they helped us with suggestions and an early check in. Also, one of my sons left something behind, and the cleaning person found it , gave it to the property manager, Olivia, who mailed it to us at home. What a great team and what great customer service!"
