Reviewer Comments:

We had a great stay at the Mayhew apartment. It was clean, airy, and had everything we needed to be comfortable for our 4 night stay. Very roomy, and with so much charm in the old wooden floors and ornate knobs and light fixtures. We used public transportation all week and didn't rent a car and it worked out perfectly for us. There is a bus stop right outside the front door, and 2 T stations within a 10 minute walking distance. There is also a Target about 10 mins away, which was handy. The property managers were quick to respond to all our needs. The building was quiet, and there was some noise on the street below but this wasn't bothersome to us at all and didn't hinder us getting a good night's sleep. It is on the 3rd floor and no elevator access, which was fine for us but would understandably deter others. We would definitely stay here again if we return to the area!

Reviewer Comments:

Charming apartment, with good amenities. Just as described. Its on the 3rd floor, so stairs may be difficult for some. A busy street, so a little noisy, but close to subways, coffee shop, restaurants, grocery. Property well maintained. Had a little difficulty getting internet connections, and therefore controlling the temperature, but property management was very responsive to emails, and fixed the heating right away. Wifi was also available at the coffee shop a block away. Loved the 224 Boston St restaurant next door, and the Dorchester Brewing around the corner. They have a caterer/food trucks each night to get dinner along with craft beers. It looks to be in a neighborhood being regenerated. Felt safe walking to the JFK/Umass subway station (13 mins). Only 3 stops from the major subway hub downtown. Would definitely recommend and visit here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathryn! We were thrilled to be able to put together a complicated booking to accommodate your last minute needs! We hope you will visit again and enjoy Restaurant 224 next door and the Dorchester Brewing Company around the corner! Oh, and that pesky internet issue has been corrected... sorry that you had some difficulty for the first two days of your stay.

Reviewer Comments:

I was surprised about the lack of communication from parties with Swank properties. They're good at sending emails relating to the property and sharing information with the tenants. However,they were poor on responding to my communication related to concerns. We were not able to park near the property, which became a concern because of the property being near a school and for street cleaning. I was not aware of our unit requiring us to climb three staircase landings. The blinds became a nuisance. They actually needed to be replaced. I had to stand on a chair to fix two of them. The furniture in our unit was soiled or stained. Some of the pictures are true to scene, a few were not. Not all windows have screens, so we weren't able to raise them for fresh air. I loved the wood floors. They were clean and felt good to bare feet. We did not cook because the basics were bare minimum. The coffee pot leaked everytime we used it. We did leave the unit as clean as it was when we arrived. We enjoyed the TV, internet connection, and the quiet atmosphere minus the traffic noise every morning. This was my 1st experience of a "so-so" stay with HomeAway. I've always experienced good communications with the Owners and my concerns or needs were addressed. I submitted a request for a fan since one of the guests had medical issues. I never heard from anyone. Our stay was for 4 nights.

Reviewer Comments:

Great value. Good location. Lots of street noise, but I'm not used to being in a city. Ear plugs took care of that. The mattresses are extremely firm, but I prefer firm over soft, so that was no problem. Internet worked easily and was fast. TV allowed us to catch some of the Cowboys game. Overall, I'd recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jordan! City noise is unavoidable, but we do have double pane windows that are sound dampening and foam insulation in the exterior walls to dampen vibration and sound. For most, this is great... but I do understand if you are not used to a city, it can be a bit notable. Thanks again for being our guests!

Reviewer Comments:

We really enjoyed the use of the property in South Boston. It was well cared for, convenient and comfortable. There were not a lot of attractions or places within walking distance, it was easy to manage with UBER and public transportation for reasonable cost. The small restaurant next door was welcoming and had great food.

Perfect for a family! We loved our stay in the heart of the Dorchester neighborhood. Close to public transportation and fantastic shopping area. Easy access to downtown and surrounding communities. Free parking on the street is a bonus! The property was extremely clean and well tended to.
