Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this property. It was centrally located and we were able to see a lot of Boston, including but not limited to the Freedom Trail. The beds in the second bedroom were not as comfortable as the Master bedroom. Great for kids, not so great for adults.

Great stay in the Boston area

  • 5 of 5

You can't hardly stay better in Boston. The house is in a safe and nice neighborhood and its easy to go downtown. The spacious house provided all amenities we needed.

We enjoyed our stay in Boston very much. The next beach with free parking is just minutes away (Wollaston Beach, Quincy). The next Tram Station heading downtown is only a few minutes walk.

Jack is a responsive host, answered any question quickly.

Family friendly, very reasonable rates and great hosts.

  • 4 of 5

Hosts were very pleasant and helpful. House was well stocked. Short walk to the trolley and about 40 mins to downtown. Grocery is close by and the home is located on a quiet side street.

Very accomodating

  • 5 of 5

We ended up booking this property at the last minute due to issues with a different reservation, and it couldn't have been better for the price. Our two year old loved running around the house, and the family room was perfect to relax in before bed time.

Also, the Chromecast was awesome to have. We easily casted Vudu and Netflix, so we could play some of our son's favorite shows and movies during downtimes. It was really helpful during the blizzard that went through during our stay.

Despite Boston's crazy road layout, we were able to get to a lot of attractions in under 30 minutes (including missing turns). The Boston Children's Museum, the New England Aquarium, the Harvard Natural History Museum, and Legoland were just a hop from the nearby highway.

Relaxing, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy to find this property. It suited our needs perfectly--two bedrooms, one with twin beds for our teens who do not care to share a bed. The house was tastefully decorated and has clearly been well maintained and updated, yet the atmosphere there was casual. We felt right at home, and were glad to be able to spread out and have a kitchen. It was a bit of a hike to the public transit into Boston, but definitely do-able. We also had a rental car for side trips, and the driveway provided off-street parking. The hosts were kind and answered our questions. The information they left was useful (a notated map of the neighborhood, lots of brochures and maps, and info. on things in the house.) We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to others. We found the neighborhood quiet and we felt safe. From the public service posters in the trolley, the general area has seen some challenges, but they appear to be meeting them with grace. It was a very pleasant visit.
