About the property

Studio apartment with a private full bathroom sleeps up to 4 people

The large studio is about 450 square feet or 42 meters in a South End Brownstone built around 1860. The apartment home features all new stainless full size appliances, television, stereo, dvd player, wireless internet, all kitchen utensils, pots, dishes, towels, sheets and blankets.

In the apartment there is a queen size Murphey bed that easily pulls down from the wall. This bed is extremely comfortable. The sofa opens up to a full size bed. I can also supply a twin size blow up mattress.

In the apartment is one large closet with lots of room for longer stays. The good size bathroom features a combination bath tub/shower, toilet and sink.

In the building is a coin operated washer/dryer and just next door is a laundromat where clothes can be left in the morning and picked up later in the day.

Just off the apartment is a small private deck with a table and 4 chairs. A perfect place for coffee in the morning and sun in the afternoon.

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.

The apartment is great. Its location makes easy to get to know many places in downtown Boston. There is no need to have a car. It has also restaurants and small shops that makes your life easy. We got the keys on time, the unit was clean and ready to use. All the appliances, linens and towels necessary are there.

comfortable apartment in interesting area

  • 4 of 5

Positive: Fairly large, nicely furnished and well equipped, good bed. Reasonably quiet and safe but Intersting area with several nearby 7 to11's (the chinese one is the best) and lots of restaurants. Pleasant 10 minute walk to Silverline bus for South station (transport hub). Liquor store a few blocks up the road. Very good sandwich stop next to bus stop.

Negative: steep steps to house entrance followed by two flights of steep stairs, could not work out how TV etc worked. Air conditioning was only just adequate in September. No good supermarket nearby. Bed had to be wedged with suitcase to stop it sliding.

The apartment is located in Boston's fashionable South End neighborhood which is very close to the Prudential Center, Copley Square and Copley Place. All about a 15 minute or less walk. The South End is known to have Boston's finest restaurants, cafes and casual restaurants.

The walk to the nearest T (subway) station is 10 minutes down West Newton Street. The subway station there is Prudential on the Green line. The walk to the Back Bay Station(Orange line and Amtrak) is also about 10 minutes.

From the apartment you can also stroll over to Newbury Street which is filled with unique stores and restaurants.
