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

- On the second floor of the apartment, a brand new queen size bed, with a large leather sectional, and space for a queen-sized air mattress and is great for families as the wide space features another big screen TV and direct access to your private roof deck.

*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 closest MBTA stops (T or subway) are Hynes Convention Center Station (0.2 miles away) and Copley Station (0.3 miles away), both on the Green Line. 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).

1) On-Street: Metered parking is available right in front of the building, which becomes free overnight parking from 8PM to 8AM. Please take note of the street cleaning signs. Your car will be towed by the city if you park during the street cleaning hours.

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).

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!

Best Choice In Boston

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at a VRBO & our choice could not have been better. From promptly answering our pre-travel questions to allowing us to print our boarding passes at the first floor real estate office, Jason & his associates showed a level of customer service to be emulated.

This two story town home in the heart of Back Bay exceeded our expectations. Within the walls of this period structure, our living quarters were nicely remodeled, yet retained the charm of an earlier era. The space & lay out suited our needs perfectly.

Situated between Bolyston St & Newbury St, the location was ideal for shopping & dining. After a short stroll up Newbury St, we found ourselves at the Boston Common & the start of the Freedom Trail. In the other direction, an easy 15 minute walk took us to Fenway Park. For groceries, Trader Joe's is just around the corner.

For other activities & destinations, Uber, the T & the commuter rail to Gloucester for whale watching were easily accessible.

If in Boston again, this Back Bay town home will definitely be our first lodging choice.
