Property description

THE APARTMENT:
---------------------------------------------------

Stunning! This neighborhood is one of Bostons coolest. On a tree lined street, with water fired brick sidewalks in the Historic District, this beautifully furnished studio was just renovated this year.

This is classic 'old Boston' on the Back Bay / Fenway line, everything is steps from the door to your own Studio in restored 1890s Brownstone.

Walk score of 97 - steps to 'restaurant row' and everything at your fingertips. You won't need a car, but if you do, you can use ZipCar or walk to Avis to pick up a ride.

Studio 3 is FULLY FURNISHED with the best, most comfortable and most fashionable, yet classic, furniture we could find from Crate and Barrel, Boston Interiors and Pottery Barn.

Setup includes a first class Murphy bed that folds up to wall with when you want it to disappear. When it's down, this plushly made up bed features a Posturpedic mattress that gets rave reviews.

Also for dining, a gate leg, drop leaf dining table hides by the marble fireplace waiting to be unveiled and comfortably seats 4.

A kitchen bar, with aluminum counter stools with backs makes a large work space, or a great place to enjoy dinner.

A a full size leather sofa bed, and a 42' HDTV with full cable, a dresser, leather chair and stool to match the couch with a coffee table make up the main living area.

Decorated with local artwork, and finishing the original wood floors with an area rug make this Studio one of the South End's fanciest!

The view from the windows is of a tree lined street, brick side walks and people walking their dogs, pushing their babies or going for a run.

The park that runs from Massachusettes Avenue to Back Bay Station has public basketball courts, tennis courts and community tended gardens all along the corridor.

This park is steps from this condo and bustling with people day and night. Walk a few houses down to the end of the street to access the park.

Included with every stay at Studio 3 are plush towels, linens and a fully appointed kitchen with service for 6, as well as pots, pans, knives, serving spoons, a wine key and all of the things that make up a great kitchen.

THE BUILDING
---------------------------------------------------

The building is a historic circa 1880 brownstone in the South End Historic with 4 studio apartments.

This is located in the historic district on the border of Back Bay, South End and Fenway.


THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
---------------------------------------------------

The South End is the largest intact Victorian row house district in the country, which is made up of over 300 acres.

The neighborhood is FULL of amazing restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, theaters, bars and shops.

In 1973, the South End was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Also, walk to 3 ZIP CAR locations, or HUBWAY instant bike rental where you can take the bike and leave it at your destination, or bring it back.

Parking in the neighborhood is very tight, so because it is so walkable, it is suggested you leave your car at home. If you must drive in, there is a parking garage on Gainsborough Street, about a 10 minute walk, where parking is offered for $35/day.


WHY RENT THIS APARTMENT?
---------------------------------------------------

Hosts Richard & Victoria Guarantee Your Stay is "Better Than Home"

Husband and wife team, Richard and Victoria have been traveling together for over 20 years, and have been landlords in Boston for 15 years.

"We travel too, and we expect everything to be perfect! Really." said Richard, co-owner of Spare Suite, Inc.

"Our standards are first class, and five stars only. And we stand behind that 100 percent."

Hosts, Richard and Victoria work hard to ensure the accommodations are flawless, every time.

"We started vacation rentals as an experiment," Victoria said. "We furnished a top floor studio in our own multi-family home on Royal Street, just hoping it may get booked a couple of weeks each month. Immediately, it started booking and just never stopped."

Richard and Victoria now have 15 short term rentals in Boston and attribute their success to the fantastic reviews.

"Reviews fuel the fire", Richard said. "Now we have 3 additional short term furnished luxury apartments in Back Bay, Fenway and the South End that all get first class, five star reviews."

The couple say their experience with property management, and their knowledge of the city of Boston, combined with their insistence upon attention to detail is why they have such a high guest satisfaction rate.

SERIOUS CLEANLINESS STANDARDS THAT EXCEED EXPECTATIONS:
---------------------------------------------------

When you check in, everything will be in perfect condition. You will feel as if the apartment was put together just for you, clean and sterile from our cleaning crew on every surface, even the switch plates and remote controls.


We call it, "White Glove, Black Light Cleaning." It's our service mark.

Standards for cleanliness exceed those of any 5 star hotel. Every surface, appliance, drawer, ledge and corner are cleaned using a check-list with over 120 points. All surfaces, including floors and walls are vacuumed, then hand washed - never mopped.

Once the unit is thoroughly cleaned, it is inspected by your hosts Richard or Victoria or another manager before you check in to be certain everything is up to snuff. Feel free to do the 'white glove test' anywhere in the apartment.

Linens are laundered locally using bleach, and inspected twice before they go back for use in the unit. We use high quality cotton sheets and plush towels.


AMAZING REVIEWS:
---------------------------------------------------

Not convinced that booking one of these 'phat pads' will be a good move? Have a look at what every guest ever said about the location you like. Just check out any major travel website!

Last year we won awards for excellence from Trip Advisor, Booking-com, Airbnb and American Express, just to name a few.

You may notice that all of these amazing apartments earn five star reviews without exception.

Owner info

Spare Suite

About the owner: We are your hosts - Richard and Victoria. We have been traveling together for 18 years, and we have been Boston landlords since 2005. Our standards are 'FIRST CLASS and FIVE STAR' and we won't accept less. Since we started doing short term rentals it has become our passion to provide the cleanest, most tastefully furnished, and simply best accommodations available. In every circumstance we personally guarantee that everything will exceed your expectations. Every detail has been carefully though out and implemented to ensure the best possible stay.

Why the Owner Chose South End, Boston, MA, USA:
This property met the standard for 'First Class, Five Star Accommodations' and we snapped it up. It was just renovated and it is in the best neighborhood in town. - it was an easy decision. This is Victoria's favorite location. It just feel like home. Steps to everything, it is central, but it is a real neighborhood feeling. The people are great, the history is deep, and the Studio is perfect.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This a beautifully restored historic brownstone. There are only 5 units in the building. The tree-lined street, with brick sidewalks borders Back Bay and is two blocks from the Orange Line 'Mass Ave' T Stop. If you never leave the South End you can find everything you need, from amazing restaurants, to boutiques, galleries and shops - it feels like home right away.
