Great Location - but beware it is a smoking (narcotics) building

  • 4 of 5

We visited Boston from Ontario from Dec 16 - Dec 19. Beacon Hill is a great location and you can walk most places. The apartment was exactly as described. It's a bit small, but served it's purpose. We had one big issue... Jeff the landlord was quick to reply... but really couldn't do anything. After a long day enjoying Boston, we returned to the "non smoking" building to find it smelling full of cannabis. Since it's an old building the smell was everywhere and just lingered...... it was sooo bad we had to leave. Very disappointing to pay sooo much money and have this. We travel a lot and never have had a VBRO experience like this. Jeff said he had smelled it before in the building .. really - no compensation or discount was offered for this "experience".

Anyway .. if you go to Boston, make sure you go Newbury St .... very pretty at Xmas even if you don't want to shop. Charles St is nice as well. Walk through the parks. Freedom Trail is good. Quincy Market, Boston Public Market (all local food .. yummmm). Mike's Pastry is a MUST on Hanover St .. another really nice area. Amendment 21 is a great restaurant and so is Red Hat(?) -- just a block from Temple St ....reasonable price and good food..... 10 cents wings on Sunday nights! We used Spot Hero to find a parking spot .... was a 6 min walk and cost $40.00 for the entire stay....highly recommend trying it.

Owner's Response: Yes, I went up there as soon as I could, which was about an hour after the complaint, and the smell had already completely dissipated. The only thing I could smell was the scent of cooking oil. No marijuana smell. I am sorry that you were offended by this. Marijuana is now legal in Massachusetts. And, in general Boston is a very liberal city.

Great option on Beacon Hill

  • 5 of 5

We are back home and we wanted to thank you for a great time at your flat in Boston. We tried to leave everything as tidy and neat as we found it (parking permit on the desk and keys at the lockbox included). The location is superb, walking distance to all the main attractions in town, the parking is super convenient and close by, Wholefoods on Cambridge Ave is fantastic for every need. Just bear in mind the sofa bed is rather small for 2 so we had to use the inflattable mattress for one of our kids (11 and 13 years old). Other than that (and 4 floors staircase) the flat is perfect.Thanks a lot for your help Bjarni and we hope to be able to be back to Boston and your lovely flat again!

True Boston Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Boston for just over 2 months for work and were really lucky to have found this place to stay! The location was perfect for us. It was a neat experience to stay in the quaint and charming Beacon Hill neighbourhood. We could walk everywhere we needed and wanted to go. Whole Foods is a 3 minute walk away for groceries and pre-prepared meals, there are numerous pharmacies nearby for essentials, and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby as well. Over our stay we walked to nearly all of the Boston "must see" places and landmarks from here. It is also close to several "T" stations (subway) for transportation. We were pleasantly surprised by how well equipped the place was, even for our long term stay, and even through the snowiest winter in Boston's history! It has everything you need for bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen as well as books, games, TV, and Netflix to keep you entertained in case you get snowed in (otherwise go out and explore the beautiful historic surroundings!) It is a clean, well kept, beautiful unit on the fourth floor. We knew before we arrived that there would be no elevator but managed the stairs just fine, even hauling our 3 month old son and all of his gear up and down. I would definitely not let this deter you from staying in this little Beacon Hill gem. It's location truly can't be beat. I feel we got a true Boston experience staying here and I would highly recommend it to others!
