About Will and Brent
Short Term Rentals Boston was founded in 2011with the goal of providing visitors of Boston with rental options for furnished apartments that combine the comfort, convenience and privacy of a home with the reliability of a professional management company. After experiencing the need for hotel alternative accommodations first-hand Will and Brent formed STRB to be both an economical and reliable solution in Boston. Our guests arrive in Boston knowing, not hoping, that they have rented a safe, clean and well-equipped apartment in the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city.
Why Will and Brent chose Fenway/Kenmore
Marlborough Street is a quaint, tree-lined street in perhaps the most sought after neighborhood in all of Boston, the Back Bay.
What makes this House unique
The apartment is located in the heart of the Back Bay - close to everything. Shopping, restaurants, Red Sox, Bruins, hospitals, universities - all are just a short walk and even shorter cab ride away. That being said, Marlborough Street is the quietest street in the Back Bay - you can get away from the energy of the City in this apartment and have it waiting for you a few blocks away when you are ready for it. Best of all worlds.
Location is wonderful. However, the appartment needs a little tender loving care.
The location is perfect. The beds comfortable. A few things could have been better but overall I would recommend this property. I would also stay here again.
Nice location. Needs some maintenance.
Nice location. Good communication and instructions by email. Building looked run down from outside compaired to rest of neighborhood. Tables in bedroom were not useable, need repair. Many of the window shutters need repair. Light bulbs out in living room(we replaced one). Couch and chair soiled, could use cleaning. Only two forks in the kitchen. No DVD player. Hair dryer needs replacing. Back gate to alley very rickety and hard to open. Could not find designated trash cans in alley, no address on cans as specified in lease. Small patio needs cleaning. Would be much nicer with a little maintenance.
Chic little apartment, super-convenient to Hynes Center
This little basement apartment was ideally located less than a 10 minute walk from the Hynes convention center. The two bedrooms were furnished with very comfortable beds and lovely bedding (duvets). The decor was tasteful and chic. It is a basement apartment but I almost forgot this after closing the door. There were laundry facilities available that were communal and convenient especially in the basement apartment. The bathroom had a nice whirlpool tub and a generous tiled standup shower. The world is your oyster as far as restaurants and shops within easy walking distance.
Charming old house, great location
We loved this apartment. It is the basement floor of an old building so be aware that you will need to take your luggage up and down a long flight of stairs. We found the apartment very clean and spacious with very comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen and back patio for morning coffee. The neighborhood is beautiful and very safe for walking- only 5 minutes to Charles River and 10 minutes to Newbury St!
I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Come back any time!
The apartment's location is perfect for touring all the Boston sites. However, the apartment is in poor condition and not very clean. The patio area also has not been well maintained with the neighbors air condition unit dripping water on you when you step outside. The bedrooms are very hot and small for two people to share. The shower has very low water pressure. The pictures on the website display a luxury apartment which it is not.
