Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights, and loved it. The outdoor space was beautiful, and there were so many choices to eat within walking distance! You have to go to Flour Bakery for breakfast - we had so much fun going in for coffee in the morning and sitting with the regulars at the big table :)

The area is amazing and the home was quiet and comfortable and very well equipped.

Thanks Karoline!

Excellent location, lovely property

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for six nights with my 16 yr old granddaughter while I attended a conference at the Hynes Convention Center. The Prudential Center which surrounds the Convention Center is a fast 15 minute walk away through a lovely neighborhood which felt safe even late at night. The property was as described with updates that make it an extremely pleasant place to stay. The owners are very kind and helpful, provided an easy access for the early check-in which we had paid for. One can come/go through the back garden which was very convenient. The neighborhood is simply delightful with lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Strongly recommend "Flour" and "L' Madeline", the latter with superb croissants! The private garden visible through the apartment's windows is very special. While the weather was hot and humid, the unit is well air conditioned and we were always comfortable despite the high external temperatures. The kitchen is well equipped and the unit would be perfect for long-term rental. I would certainly return to this property if ever in Boston again. Thanks, Karoline and Todd for lovely accommodations!
