City break from UK

  • 5 of 5

I visited Boston with my two adult children and we found this apartment to be ideal for us. The apartment was clean, well maintained and roomy, although it had a cosy feel. Two separate bedrooms allowed us some personal space and the situation was ideal for getting round Boston. There was a lack of natural light due to it being lower ground floor, but this did not bother us and there was a small private courtyard which would be enjoyable in the summer months. We were out most of the day anyway exploring Boston and were able to walk to most places. The area was quiet but close enough to bars and restaurants. Back Bay station was very close also. We spent one night in a tiny hotel room in New York and coming back to Julia's apartment felt like coming home! Boston is a great city and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Short stay in apartment in early June 2016

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment (2 adults and 2 children aged 13 and 9). Its location was just great, in a very nice traditional tree-lined neighborhood, very quiet but safe, next to the T Back Bay station, restaurants, a very large grocery store, we actually walked from there all the way to Fenueil Hall ! Apartment is very spacious, kitchen well equipped, a bit dark from lack of natural light but can't be helped due to its design/position in the lower ground floor. Excellent wifi and large flat screen TV. Comfortable beds. Cute back patio area.

Julia was a lovely host, very friendly and helpful with anything we needed! Recommended!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

After a long day of tourist sight seeing, it was a nice place to come home to. With bedrooms on two separate levels, we were provided plenty of privacy. Safe, great location. Only cons, unusual shower design (house built in 1890) and kitchen could use some serving bowls.

We had excellent service from the owner!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your visit. The bathroom is being remodeled in December and we certainly will get more bowls. Sorry you did not mention it to us. Come back soon Julia

Great place to stay in Boston's South End!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and another couple stayed 5 nights in this apartment as we were in town for the Boston Marathon. This was the ideal location for our needs. Boylston St was a short 10-15 minute walk which was very convenient. A "T " subway station is a short distance from the apartment too which made traveling around the city a breeze. There are restaurants, supermarkets and most importantly a Starbucks close by as well. Julia was very attentive to our needs and maintained a good line of communication from the time of our arrival until we departed. Other than the shower being a bit small , the apartment was perfect. The location of the apartment and Julia's responsiveness/communication far outweighs the minor issue with the shower. I will definitely save this listing for any future travel needs in Boston.

Great stay in South Boston

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for us an our 4 year old daughter. The location was close to many great eating spots and grocery stores and downtown was about a 1-2 mile walk. We passed a couple of nice playgrounds on the way into downtown that our daughter loved and the subway system was pretty easy to navigate. The shower was a little tight, but the water temperature and pressure were excellent. Would definitely stay there again next time we are in Boston!

Owner's Response: The shower head is a little tight indeed but in a few months, we are rebuilding the shower area and it will no longer be an issue.
