Fantastic place! Wanted to stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Ingrid's place. It had such a homey feel about it and was a lovely quiet street. We didn't hear a sound from the street or neighbours.

Great bed, fridge and I loved having washer and dryer in the room. Was so handy. Plenty of supplies left like toilet paper, body lotion etc. Apartment is super close to everything. One min away is small concenience store and owner in there was so lovely. When we arrived he was closed but he saw us looking in and opened up for us so we could buy milk and bread. Excellent 7 Eleven Store 3 min walk away.

This is our first time to Boston and I have 2 girls, 12 and 10. We all loved Boston and wished we could have stayed longer.

Great for young family!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us (2 parents, 9 year old, 13 year old) stayed at this beautiful apartment for 3 nights. It was great to be able to stay in a safe, quiet, residential area after a long day of touring the city by foot. We would go back for a couple of hours in the late afternoon to rest and then find a yummy restaurant nearby to walk to for dinner. So much better than a hotel to really get the flavor of the area!

South End Boston stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Boston staying in the Ingrid's Appleton Brownstone appt. What a great feeling to back home in God's country walking the neighborhood and all around Boston. The apartment was clean and decorated with everything we needed Our 19 year old son stayed with us and in the condo on the pull out couch. The AC units in the den and bedroom made a hot summers night a "cool" time for all. We made the most of our stay in Boston with only a short walk to the T to get to Fenway and Fanueil Hall. We enjoyed the BackBay and restaurants in the So End. like the Buttery and the Appleton Cafe right on the block! Great to be in Boston. Go Sox!
