a comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here over Christmas. I was delighted at how quickly we all felt at home. The space is comfortable and easy and very quiet. The kitchen is well equipped. The unit was clean and ready to welcome us. We are Bostonians (who had recently sold a condo in the South End) and were so glad we could spend the holiday in the neighborhood we call home. Thanks to Eric for being so helpful throughout our stay.

Great location! Everything you need is in walking distance, ie. T, shops, restaurants, sites.

  • 5 of 5

Property is well-stocked, ie. Towels, blankets, kitchen. No need to bring any items!! Great location. Property is super comfortable. Stairs going up to front door (it is a brownstone!) and flight of stairs when enter from door and another flight of stairs to go up to two bedrooms (one full bed downstairs) —only an issue if you have any mobility constraints. Really nice set up with dining table/living area to enjoy a dinner/evening “at home”. There are several parking garages within walking distance that allow overnight parking—although a car is not necessary if touring just Boston (we drove to the Cape for the day). Wonderful property!

I love the location and feel of this place

  • 4 of 5

My family of five stayed here and the location was perfect. The train station was 2 blocks away with many restaurants and supermarkets close by. It was quiet too! I was disappointed that it didn't have a laundry but we found a laundromat 10 mins down the road which was cheap and good. The accommodation was spacious and clean with good cooking facilities. The air conditioner in the living room (third bedroom) was a bit loud for sleeping and it was hot while we were in Boston. Communication with the owner Ingrid was easy and positive from the time of booking. Would I stay here again? Definitely!
