Centrally located in Boston's historic Back Bay on Gloucester Street between Newbury and Boylston St., our apartment sits steps away from the Hynes Convention Center, the Shops at the Prudential Center and Copley Place Mall, and the boutiques of Newbury and Boylston Street. Our historic Back Bay brownstone is located only a few blocks from the serene Boston Commons and Public Gardens, the Charles River Esplanade, the Boston Public Library, historic Beacon Hill, and the Freedom Trail.
The Back Bay neighborhood sits on land reclaimed from water in the mid-nineteenth century. Unlike many other Boston neighborhoods, the Back Bay was laid out in a grid pattern and was based on French urban planning with parks and wide boulevards. The major shopping streets are Newbury Street and Boylston Street in Back Bay and Charles Street and Cambridge Street in Beacon Hill. The former is connected to the Prudential Center and Copley Place malls. Commuter Rail, Amtrak and Orange Line MBTA service are available at Back Bay station. Back Bay Station is a major intermodal center, and with Amtrak service, connects Back Bay to points well beyond Boston, including, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. The main transit service in the Back Bay is the Green Line central subway, with several stops along Boylston Street, including the Hynes Convention Center (Newbury St. & Mass Ave.) and Copley (Boylston St. & Dartmouth St.) stops.

About Jason Post
Both my wife and I, along with my parents, are long-time Back Bay residents, now living at different ends of Marlborough Street (Mass Ave. and Dartmouth St., respectively) and we are easily able to accommodate any unique requests. Additionally, my mother's residential real estate office, Meridian Realty Group, is located on the ground floor of our Gloucester Street brownstone / townhouse, facilitating easy communication and immediate assistance with any issues. Prior to my current job at an investment consulting and advisory firm, where I focus on identifying top-tier real estate managers for our clients to invest in, I worked for a small firm managing a Saudi Prince's hotel investments across North America and Europe. We managed his interests in the Four Seasons and Fairmont management/operating companies, as well as oversaw his investments in several trophy properties, most notably, NYC's The Plaza, A Fairmont Managed Hotel; The Fairmont San Francisco; Paris' Four Seasons Hotel George V; and London's The Savoy, A Fairmont Managed Hotel. I have taken the same approach we took at my previous firm to managing our personal real estate investments, by providing exceptional service combined with fantastic accommodations in prime locations. If you stay with us during the summer months, we'd love to take you out on our 50-ft yacht for a complimentary afternoon sail and lunch (catered by a restaurant / bar we own) around the Boston Harbor. Also feel free to inquire about special rates on massages and one-on-one personal training sessions at businesses my father runs on Hanover St. in Boston's Quincy Market / Faneuil Hall area (Bodywaves and Fitness Together).

Boston/Back Bay stay
We loved the location of this condo. It was convenient to everything. Trader Joe's was right around the corner and a full sized grocery store , Star Grocery, was also convenient and in walking distance. The condo was nicely appointed and had everything we needed . We had a terrific week enjoying the sights of Boston. We did not rent a car and we found that we absolutely did not need one. Uber, public transportation and walking worked out just fine.
Wonderful place to stay, especially if you're attending a conference at Hynes convention center
This is one of the best VRBO properties that we have ever rented! The condo was beautiful and very well appointed. The beds were extremely comfortable. It was so convenient to the Hynes Convention center, only 4 buildings away and in a very safe neighborhood. Great restaurants and shops within 2 blocks including a liquor store with wine tasting available. The local Whole Foods store was a bit of a walk but it was only a $7 Uber ride to get there. The owner Jason was so great to work with! He made everything so easy. During our next trip to Boston we will definitely be staying here!!
IDEAL spot - It created the feeling of living in the Back Bay area - close to everything
I've been to Boston many times, but this was the first time for pleasure. We scheduled college visits and wanted to get the "feel" of living in Boston, so we chose to rent an apt. vs. stay in a hotel.
This place was ideal - it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms - plus we used the blow-up mattress in living room. The bathrooms each had pedestal sinks so no counter space; however, each bathroom had mirrored medicine cabinets with plenty of room for toiletries.
The closets in each bedroom were roomy; however, there wasn't a hall closet - I would add more hooks or coat rack for coats. Maybe additional hooks on back of all bathroom/bedroom doors too.
Kitchen had essentials - microwave and toaster oven plus K-cup coffee maker. I really liked sitting at the table and looking out the bay window. this apartment is on the second floor so it was nice to be elevated; however you do have to climb narrow stairs to get to apartment. But it is manageable; adds to the charm :)
And we needed the coats, scarves and gloves on this trip. We came in from Texas over spring break and experienced a blizzard that dumped 17 inches of snow on Boston. My 16 yr old son loved it! He walked down to Commonwealth avenue (the main street with a park in the middle...) and made snow angles and snowmen. The city had all the streets and sidewalks cleared by the next morning - only challenge was crossing the roads - you had to step over large snow piles.
This location is in the perfect spot - between Newbury and Boylston Streets - you are a stones throw from the end of the Boston Marathon finish line (it is painted on the street). The Prudential bldg with its Skywalk Observatory is 1/2 a block away along with a huge shopping mall. There is a Trader Joe's on the corner...which was PACKED the night before the blizzard - but I think they were opened the day of too! And Copley Place is a couple of blocks away. We saw many college students returning from their spring break on Newbury Street eating at the Shake Shack.
The T (mass transit) station is close by - we used this a lot -- but also walked a lot. We walked from the Back Bay area to the downtown area, then took the T back. Boston is easy to walk - no hills. The Green T line was taken out of service so we had to walk from Boston University (on Commonwealth) over to Northeastern Univ (walked ~ 1.5 miles) - went right by Fenway Park and thru the Back Bay Fens (beautiful park area). I would stay here again!
Amazing Apartment in Fabulous Location!
Even though this apartment/condo is exactly as pictured it more charming and wonderful in person. The kitchen, baths and bedrooms are top notch - quality appliances, linens and decor as well as everything you need is there. The location in central Back Bay is amazing - you are close to everything. Jason was extremely responsive and accommodating. Check in and out is easy. It was hard for us to leave after 4 days and we definitley hope to return soon.
Clean and comfortable!
Jason was very responsive and helpful. We loved our stay!
BEST PLACE TO STAY IN BOSTON
Apartment was perfect. Located in a great area surrounded by beautiful shops and restaurants.
The apartment was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. Will definitely rent when I return to Boston. Jason's father was there to greet us, and give us the keys. Jason provided tons of information on the area. Our stay could not have been more perfect. Thank you Jason for making our stay so memorable.
