Enjoy your stay in our very comfortable, well-appointed penthouse apartment. Huge, pristinely kept 3 bedroom and 2 bath features a private outdoor roof deck on the second floor with a natural gas Weber grill, high-end appliances, high ceilings, and hardwood floors throughout that rivals any suite at the Mandarin Oriental or the Four Seasons.

- The master bedroom has a queen size bed and luxurious en-suite master bath with bathtub and marble shower.

- The second bedroom has a queen bed and access to a marble clad stand-up shower. Please note this bedroom does not have a window so that is perfect for light sleepers or young kids that are easily distracted by city noises

*Please note that this 'bedroom' does not have a door, only the private staircase separates this bedroom/playroom from the rest of the apartment.

- High-speed wireless internet and premium cable package with HBO, SHO, and all other movie channels that Comcast has to offer are included in this beautifully appointed apartment on Gloucester Street.

- This 100+ year five-story brownstone was meticulously gut-renovated in 2013 and includes a real estate sales and rental office occupying the first floor and basement that makes check-in a breeze and the office is also happy to accommodate any special requests.

- This penthouse unit is located two-flights up from the brownstone’s front entrance and one additional apartment is located below. Coin-operated washer and dryer are available in the basement and free detergent is left next to the machines.

Getting around

The closet Bus Stop is 200 feet away at the corner of Gloucester and Boylston Street (Boylston St opp Gloucester St), which, depending on traffic, offers a two to six minute bus ride (0.6 miles away) to Back Bay Station (Amtrak and Commuter Rail Station).

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).

Wow!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week in Boston at this lovely place. It is awesome both in its furnishings and its location. This place was absolutely clean beyond belief when we arrived (even the sides of the sofa were vacuumed). The instructions for arriving, keys, directions and what to expect were most detailed and really appreciated. We had 4 adults and 2 children so it was perfect for us. It is so centrally located, 1/2 block from Boylston and 1/2 block from Newbury. We walked to dinner every evening as great restaurants are within blocks of this unit. The Boston Pops Symphony Hall is within blocks. The "T" station is 2 blocks down Newbury or 2 blocks down Boylston. Fenway Park was only one stop out on the T. Star Market is only a short walk and is a major sized full line grocery. Newbury has a long line of boutiques, shops, coffee houses and restaurants. The condo became a late afternoon resting place as we saw and did so much, It is very comfortable and the furnishings are really great as is the kitchen. It was an awesome week and an absolutely wonderful place to stay. The only real problem we had was the TV went out because a circuit breaker tripped, a problem easily solved. I rate it very, very high!!!!!

Beautiful Penthouse. Clean and well Supplied

  • 5 of 5

We went back to Boston to visit my daughter for her birthday. Jason Post was very helpful in describing how to get the keys initially and the apartment was just great. Recently updated bathrooms, kitchen, nice bedding and just well done. The location was perfect for shopping and fine dining. Aside from a few Ubers to Boston College to visit my daughter, you really don't need a car here. You can walk to the best restaurants and stores in back bay and the Prudential Center. We had a wonderful time.

Excellent Property - Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving week in Boston. This condo was an absolutely perfect choice for "home base". There is lots of shopping and tons of restaurants all within easy walking distance. For more distant attractions, there is nearby access to public transportation and Ubers abound.

The condo easily accommodated the five of us when we wanted to relax at the end of the day. We decided to cook Thanksgiving dinner at the condo and were able to walk to a large grocery store to buy what we needed. The kitchen was fully furnished so that preparing and serving a large dinner was no problem at all.

Jason was very accommodating and easy to work with and the property was spotlessly clean and just as pictured/described on VRBO. No surprises at all!

Highly recommended!

Absolutely perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently converged on Boston from around the country during the birth of my daughter‘s first child and this brownstone was perfect for us! The location is between Boylston and Newberry and it is such a great area to be in. The brownstone was immaculate had plenty of room for 4 to 5 of us and we frequently used kitchen living room area and even the rooftop deck. Jason was so accommodating even getting us a spare set of keys. The check in process was super easy. The appliances are brand new and the cabinets are top notch. We enjoyed Island Creek Oyster Bar less than a mile walk up Commonwealth. We had some family members stay at the Mandarin Oriental just a three minute walk from the property. For groceries we went to the Star Market at the Prudential Center… Super close. I would have no hesitation in the future staying at this property… Jason, great job!

We had a great experience at the property, it is located in a great part of Boston! We could easily walk to many sights. Jason was responsive to all questions we had. We would stay at this property again.
