Recent Greater Boston reviews

  • Brilliant location

    "This place is situated in the most quaint street just one block back from Boston Common. It's location for sightseeing is perfect as you can walk just about everywhere. It is in a safe neighbourhood and the Cheers bar is only 2 blocks away. The home is so quaint and very spacious with two teenage boys it was perfect. The restaurants are all close by and Charles street is just 2 blocks away and you will find something to eat there. We did find though 21st Amendment a really good pub and it has such a good selection of food (although the portion sizes are very large) and the staff are friendly. We also found ZEN Japanese Grill & Sushi Bar which is near the 21st Amendment a very good sushi place with reasonable prices. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Boston except elderly people as the stairs could be an issue."

  • 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."

    "Recently we were blessed with the opportunity to spend some time as guests in this unforgettable studio retreat. In every detail we felt the energy of the beautiful souls that both designed and built this amazing space. Exhausted from our travels we INSTANTLY felt REVIVED! From that first moment, we KNEW we were exactly where we were supposed to be! The soft music, the warm glowing candles, the smell of amber incense flood over us and we actually take the time to stop and appreciate it ALL! We could have spent our entire vacation within these walls. We came feeling exhausted, when we left, we were filled with peace and pure joy!"

  • Absolutely Wonderful!

    "This beautiful Beacon Hill apartment is exactly as described. The place is very clean and absolutely wonderful. I loved every detail of the apartment. With all of the wonderful books, comfy bed, plants, dishes, to all of the little details that Iwona included in making this such a lovely place to stay! Iwona was great to deal with, very responsive, and very nice to meet. I definitely will be taking some of her great design and decorating tips home with me. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to be in the heart of this beautiful city. It is in walking distance to everything! I am so happy that we stayed here for my first visit to Boston. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to see the historic sites of Boston with a bonus of staying in the best place ever! Kelly Sonoma, California"
