About the Property

Huge 5 Room Apartment - Sleeps 4 guests - 3rd Floor In Period Victorian Home in the Allston Neighborhood - Free Parking- Close to Green and Red Line T


Enormous 1-bedroom apartment with queen bed in the bedroom, and available queen sleep sofa and twin day bed - all in separate rooms.

Great compact kitchen with everything you need, including an oven, glass radiant cook top, a refrigerator / freezer, microwave and a dishwasher.

The kitchen is fully appointed with plates, bowels, silverware, pots and pans, cooking utensils, mixing bowels, and everything you could need to cook up a snack or a Thanksgiving dinner.

There is a dining area with a table that will seat 5 guests, or a breakfast nook with a high top table that seats 2 for breakfast or tea.

Located in the entire third floor of a Victorian house built in 1890. This is a private apartment with its own entrance. The windows have inviting neighborhood views as well as views of landmark Boston buildings like the Prudential Center and Hancock Tower.


The building is a 3 family Victorian house in the Allston Neighborhood of Boston. This is located between Boston University (Green Line T 'subway') and Harvard Business School / Harvard Square (Red Line T 'subway'). The house is tastefully landscaped and gardened by Victoria. The two other apartments in the house are rented to permanent residents.


Walk to Harvard Square in 15 minutes or take the 66 direct. Harvard Square has a RED LINE and you can also walk to the Green Line Harvard Ave or Packard's Corner B LINE T stop in about 10 minutes.

This is a hidden neighborhood, across the other side of the Turnpike from Allston Village which is a much more rowdy and student infused neighborhood than Lower Allston where this apartment is located.

You can drive if you like and take advantage of free on street parking with no permit required, or you can stay on foot with no car necessary.

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.


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.


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.


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.


We have another STUDIO apartment next door to this one VRBO listing#365342

Book with confidence. Feel free to call Richard or Victoria with any questions at all.

Owner info

Royal Street Apartment

About the owner: Husband and wife, Richard and Victoria are your hosts. They already have 10 apartments in Boston that get first class, five star reviews and they can't wait to bring you their newest unit on Royal Street in Allston.

Why the Owner Chose Allston, Boston, MA, USA:
We have owned this house for 12 years and had so much success next door with the Royal Street Studio that we have been just waiting for the next opportunity to make something bigger and better available in the neighborhood. Allston has a lack of high quality short term rentals, and we know this apartment will be popular.
