Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time! The place was clean and roomy. We loved the back porch! We did think there would be a grill but did not see one out back. The AC was ok. Didn't seem to cool effectively. The front small room was pretty warm. The shower curtain needs to be replaced. Mold. Parking was good and location was good. Neighborhood was nice.

Reviewer Comments:

The apartment was very nice. Tastefully decorated, great kitchen, plenty of space. The neighbourhood is very nice and is a short walk to the metro that takes you directly into Boston. Also, plenty of air conditioning that helps on humid summer days. The only minor concern - very minor - is that the wattage of the bulbs in the dining room and the kitchen were very low and may visibility in the evening pretty bad (perhaps I missed a subtle dimmer switch somewhere). I had to take a lamp from the bedroom in the dining room at dinner so we could see properly. Compliments also to the property managers, Swank. Very professional outfit. They have their own app which they make great use of. All access codes, password and check out details were provided. When we arrived we discovered that the cleaner had not showed up. Dirty towels, sheets, etc. It was very easy to get to Swank after hours and they were able to rapidly organise clean sheets and towels. They also promptly refunded the cleaning deposit. We've used VRBO/HomeAway frequently and for many years. Sometimes mistakes happen. Swank was able to manage our issue quickly and professionally.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brian! Apologies for the schedule snafu and thank you for being so very understanding. As far as the kitchen and diningroom lights, yes indeed, they are on a dimmer switch. We will label that so it is cleared. There is a little slide button on the side of the switch to adjust. So sorry you didn't see it! Thanks again for staying and we wish you and your family the very best!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was myself, my boyfriend, his son and my daughter. The place was a good size for all of us. It was in a very quiet neighborhood. We loved the screened in porch off the kitchen. I was a bit disappointed that the place wasn't as clean as other reviews made it out to be. There were also numerous broken items in the apartment. The towel bars in the bathroom were all broken, so no place to put wet towels or even a hand towel. There were only 5 dining chairs, and one was wobbly. The garbage disposal didn't work at first. Despite these minor issues, we did enjoy our stay and would stay again.

Owner's Response: Sorry about those items! If we knew about them we would have gotten to them right away. But they are all fixed now! Not sure about what you felt was not clean, but let us know and we will have a deep cleaning on whatever bothered you. Please come again!

Reviewer Comments:

I stayed at this lovely duplex at the last minute since I had a family member in the hospital (Brigham and Women's) and live too far away to visit regularly. It is a very sweet, attractive, well-cared-for and well-furnished upper duplex, larger than it looks in photos. It was in an ideal place for access to the Longwood area, and had good restaurants (we liked Misono) and a supermarket in walking distance. Free laundry (out of the unit) was a plus. The neighborhood feels safe and people were friendly. I stayed there with two dogs. If I have a criticism, and it is a tiny one, it would be that the lock on the front door is pretty flimsy; I would have been nervous staying there as a single female. It also would have been nice to have a door at the top of the stairs, it would not be difficult to fall down a long steep flight. But I would recommend the place to the fussiest of my friends and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.Thanks for making an otherwise difficult time a whole lot easier.

Owner's Response: So glad we could help! Please come again any time if there is a need! Regarding the front door lock, it is original to the house of 1920's vintage, so we provide a lock bar in case anyone gets nervous. But as West Roxbury is the safest neighborhood in Boston, there has never been an incident at this home since we have managed it beginning in 2002!
