Great location and nice townhouse while visiting Boston area.

  • 4 of 5

Traveled with my family of 6 (2 adults, 4 teens) and were very happy with our stay. The location of the town home is very convenient to the downtown Boston area (approximately a 10 minute Uber ride). Somerville is just outside of the "main" downtown Boston area - We did not use the public transportation, so can't speak on the proximity of that, but our Uber rides were typically about $20.00 for a 6 passenger. The home is walking distance to a large grocery store (Stop and Shop), and several excellent restaurants (2 specifically that we loved - Vinny's Ristorante & La Brasa). Cute ice cream shop a couple blocks away, as well as gas station, pizza places, Dunkin Donuts, etc... Residential type neighborhood, felt very safe and comfortable walking around. We basically used Uber/Lyft to get into Boston each day - and spent the entire day there, returning at night. Never a problem getting an Uber - typically less than a 3 minute wait. We had our car, so we did drive to Harvard for the day, as parking seems a little easier to come by there than in downtown Boston. The kitchenware/silverware/drinkware could use a little help (i.e. only one coffee cup, one sharp knife, pans a little worn) - but we didn't cook much so it was not really an inconvenience for us, just something for the owner to perhaps address. A minor issue with the owner entering the premises unannounced twice while we were there - apparently a miscommunication on his part as to when we were checking out. A little unsettling, but he was very apologetic. All in all, it was a very comfortable, nicely appointed home, with pretty much all we needed. The included parking was a HUGE benefit, as almost every other place we considered either charged for parking or you were on your own to find it. There is a private driveway (shared with two other units) or you can park on the street with the provided parking pass. Again - this is a really big plus if you start looking at the cost of garage parking and meter parking in the Boston area. As to other comments on the lack of TV offerings - yes, only a handful of channels available - but when you are in a great city to explore - why sit at home watching tv anyway??? If you are a family looking for a convenient, comfortable home while visiting Boston, Harvard, etc.... I would recommend this. We were quite happy with our stay, the location of the property and the amenities that a "home" provides versus a hotel room.

Spacious and close to everthing in Boston

  • 3 of 5

At first site the place seemed clean and just what we needed for our 4 day vacation of six people. The 3 bedrooms with queen beds a living room, bathroom, and kitchen was definitely what we required. However, after a day on the town and the need to come home and relax, we discovered there is'nt enough seating in the living area for 6 adults, let alone comfortable seating. Love seat and chairs not comfortable or clean. Bathroom was not cleaned at all. I went to the store the following morning to get cleaners to wash the tub, toilet, and floor. Disgusting with hair, urine, soap scum, mildew, and toothpaste and god knows what else. Beds and sheets were clean, we expected hard beds and they were, just would have loved more the 1 pillow per person. Bath towels were clean and plentiful, just didn't have any wash cloths. I Bought those too when I went to get cleaners for the bathroom. Left them for future guests. All in all I think the place has great potential but the owner definitely needs to upgrade furniture and obtain a better house cleaning company. The parking was good and the owner left us a parking permit for the street. Thank you!

Great location & price!

  • 4 of 5

Pros: great location in East Somerville. Less than 15 min. walk from Sullivan Station which includes Orange line T & many buses. Walking distance to a Stop & Shop, many delicious restaurants in the neighborhood & a liquor store & corner store within 1-2 blocks. The apartment itself is spacious, has washer & dryer, shared parking (free) or permit for parking on street (reasonable fee). Includes keypad entry which is super convenient. Decently stocked w/ cooking utensils. Would stay again.

Cons: No measuring cups. Lots of other cooking utensils, but no measuring cups. In the amenities listed regarding this property (through our stay 10/12 to 10/17/2017) is a hot tub & community pool. Those amenities are not available. Very limited cable options (bare bones channels) though it does include all the HBOs (but not Travel, Discovery, Food, etc.). This place also listed as beachfront & downtown- not true. Access to the beach & downtown, sure, but that's all of Boston. The 3rd bedroom's mattress was at an angle, was strange.

Things to note: Shared parking is kind of inconvenient b/c you have to keep moving your car out of the way so people can back out (or ask people to move their car so you can get out) but we only had a car for one night so it worked for us. Fee for street parking was reasonable but there's not always a lot of availability. You can really hear the neighbors quite well above us. Not voices, just footsteps. Bedroom 1 had very firm mattress. Not as clean as a hotel but cleaner than my apartment so....depends on how picky you are.
