This apartment is well appointed and close to great restaurants, cafes, shopping and transportation. Glenn and Kevin were very welcoming and communication was a breeze!

Good location, mostly clean, but not entirely what we expected

  • 4 of 5

It was my husband and my first time staying in a VRBO. We stayed three nights, and were mostly just there for sleeping as we had full days planned. Would have rather just had the keys left for us, as it was more tough to have to have an appointment to meet Kevin while on our vacation. (Kevin & Glenn were informative & accomodating, just felt bad that we couldn't give an exact time to meet, as we had a long drive with our 9 month old, so having to hold someone up was stressful to me.) As you can see from the pictures, you walk up a flight of stairs to get to the door & the unit was down a flight of stairs. The lower level was not as appealing as other units may have been. The kitchen was completely stocked & having a blow dryer, iron and ironing board was nice. My husband told me that the TV was poor quality, as the volume didn't turn down low & the picture wasn't great. Overall, a pretty nice place in Boston's South End.

Spacious & clean. Well stocked kitchen appliances. Multiple outlets for charging devices.

  • 4 of 5

We were met & assisted into our apt, then shown where things were. It was clean, safe neighborhood, near T bus stop. Bed was a bit hard, but room was spacious - sufficient outlets for charging devices. Kitchen was stocked with appliances & cookware. There was a nice deck in the back. Quiet neighborhood for the most part. Enjoyed our stay.

Studio was close to transit to all the sights in Boston. Apartment was clean and had everything.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed in the studio. Most of our time was out exploring Boston so the small space was fine for us. Safe neighborhood. Close to transit and some nearby cafes. I recommend this place if you don't mind a studio size space.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment location was perfect, it was conveniently located and quiet. The apartment was clean, warm and a lot bigger than I had expected. Also, there was an actual queen sized bed in a small room in place of the murphy bed. Glenn responded to my emails quickly and contacted me 2 weeks prior to my arrival. I highly recommend this place and I would definitely stay here again.

fabulous holiday

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is great, very clean and comfortable and the location is very convenient to walk to most of the Boston sites and public transport. There are lots of restaurants and bars close to or within walking distance of the apartment. Kevin was helpful and we got the keys when we wanted them. All appliances, linen and an abundance of towels are in the apartment. We made use of the small patio at the rear of the apartment. This was our first time in America and we would love to return to Boston and would definitely use this apartment again.
