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.

This property is located in the perfect spot to experience everything Boston has to offer.

  • 4 of 5

This property is located in the perfect spot to experience everything Boston has to offer. It is super easy to find and located very close to multiple subway lines. There are many restaurants, bars and cafe's in the area. There is also a CVS right around the corner. This property while very quaint is more for someone who is wanting to get out and enjoy Boston. However there is a frig, coffee maker, washer/dryer, TV etc. if you choose to stay in. I'm happy to recommend this property. Safe Travels!

Great little place

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in Boston and this little place was great. Close to the subway, quiet and we felt very safe there. The ad was a little misleading, as it said "2 bedroom apartment". There is 1 actual bedroom and a hideaway bed in the couch. It was cozy for 4 people, but we didn't spend a lot of time there as we were too busy seeing the sites of Boston. The only real downside was the pillows on the beds. They really were horrible. Overall, it was great and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Thankyou.

Charming and accessible

  • 5 of 5

This location was great, easily accessible to public transportation, a short walk to grab groceries, very quiet on the street, nearby quaint restaurants. On top of that, Ingrid checked in with me before we arrived to make sure the directions for accessing her place was clear, and Eric was very helpful with some last-minute details. I would stay at this place again.
