About Marsha

My husband's profession has afforded us the opportunity to travel as well as live in different parts of the country. We chose to settle in the Lower Mills community of Boston because of its quiet and quaint feeling yet still be a part of the life of Boston. The fact that we have 3, wonderful, grandchildren close by had nothing to do with our decision. Being from the South, originally, we have enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and the history behind our area. We have lived in Boston for 25 years and love Boston and New England. I have enjoyed decorating and making our suite a delightful haven for traveling guests and my husband is the consummate friendly tour guide, who will gladly tell you what to be sure and see and how best to get there.

Marsha purchased this condo in 1999

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed having Kristi and her family. They were able to enjoy the peak of our annual "turning of the leaves" in New England. The weather was wonderful as I recollect. A beautiful time to be in Boston. There is more history per square mile in Boston than any other place in the country and the trolley tour is a wonderful way to see it all. You are able to get off at any of the places of interest and when you are through seeing the sights, you are able catch a ride with the next frequently, scheduled trolley. A car is not needed because we have such a wonderful transit system with in a short walk from our condo. But if you do have a car, we offer free, off-street parking. We are glad to offer all the comforts of home.

Beautiful, Clean and Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary - with my sister and her husband who were celebrating their 25th – with a first time visit to Boston. The apartment was very clean and extremely comfortable and was a perfect location for us to relax after busy days of sightseeing. The proximity to the T station was excellent, and we enjoyed walking through the historic neighborhood. If we every have the opportunity to visit Boston again, we will be going back to this lovely Boston condo!

Boston in September

  • 5 of 5

So glad we were able to book this condo, with its oh-so-comfy beds and linens. What a way to end each day full of sightseeing in the walkable city of Boston! Also, we were glad to use the T to get around since Boston's traffic can be a driving nightmare. Ashmont station is about a 15 minute walk from the condo, so we used a week Charlie Card to get almost everywhere. Using the Lyft app to summon a friendly driver was an easy, quick, and cheap way to get to Logan when we left for home. Thanks, Marsha & Dave.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two teenage boys had a wonderful visit to Boston, due in large part to Marsha and Dave. Their incredible guidance and outstanding kindness not only helped us to enjoy all the historic sights but also how to get around to see them all! We cooked several meals in the condo and lacked for nothing. After long days of walking and sightseeing it was a comfort to settle back in our home away from home. I will always recommend Marsha and Dave to my friends & family visiting Boston!!

Great place, great location, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

I've had to upgrade my bed linens at home after my stay here - the towels and linens are hotel-quality. This was the perfect place for my extended stay in Boston. I was here for an outpatient surgery and two weeks of recovery and the condo was very comfortable, quiet, and homey. The walk to the T station and grocery store are reasonable (about 15-20 minutes?), and the location can be a good base for lots of sightseeing, although I walk A LOT, and it might be a bit much for some. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is well-stocked with all you need to prepare a meal, however, the knives are rather dull for chopping vegetables or cutting meat. Dave and Marsha are delightful people, even without my Texas bias. I needed wifi for telecommuting, and had some initial problems getting connected, but they found a workaround until they could get it fixed. Bred gourmet burgers is a few blocks away and serves excellent burgers, sweet potato fries, and fried plantains. I loved Boston, loved my stay here, and would stay again without a doubt!

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay at Dave and Marsha's condo as our son was running in the Boston Marathon this year. The condo provided everything you would need and made us feel right at home. It was impeccably clean, comfortable and a relaxing oasis to return to after a long day of sightseeing around Boston. It is conveniently located right around the corner from the "T" (Ashmont Station) and a grocery store is minutes down the street. Great value as well - highly recommend!
