Gorgeous, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

For our son's graduation, we rented Lisa beautiful apartment. The old charm of the brownstone living and the lovely decor made our stay special. The apartment is set up with comfortable furniture and it was easy to have our extended family stop by for a celebratory toast.

The location was just perfect. It's within walking distance to so much and we never needed our car. Lisa was very accommodating and went out of her way to find us a parking spot for the few days we were there.

I hope we can rent her lovely home again in the future. Thank you, Lisa!!

A gem

  • 5 of 5

Lisa's home was a wonderful place to stay for an extended weekend trip to Boston to celebrate my sister's wedding. There was plenty of space for 4 adults. The home was warm and comfortable... a real home away from home in an ideal location.

An amazing, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this apartment for 4 nights with x4 adults and my toddler. The apartment was really nice, really spacious, really good amenities and overall we were very impressed. Lisa also left out a basket of goodies for our arrival, which was very much appreciated.

The location was good, although to walk to the Aquarium and harbour for the tourist boats was about 30 mins, but the there is a T station within a 10 mins walk which gets you across Boston pretty quickly.

Lisa was also super helpful before our stay, and kept me fully informed and up to date with lots of information.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this apartment.

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this fantastic apartment. When we arrived we found a beautiful and clean apartment with a lovely basket of treats and a refrigerator with some essential goodies. The bedrooms were all beautifully appointed with comfortable beds. The bathrooms were a delight and everything was clean as can be. An important criteria for me. The kitchen was appointed with everything needed to easily prepare and cook meals, with nice appliances. The living area was spacious and full of guide books that helped us plan some activities. We had a couple of warmer days when we were able to open then windows, and sitting in the comfortably appointed living room with the warm breeze blowing in, was wonderful.

The location of the apartment was perfect for us. Our son is a student at the New England Conservatory of Music and walking there was quick and easy. The Back Bay T-stop was a short walk away, which made getting to other parts of Boston a snap. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, as is the surrounding area, but shopping and restaurants are just a quick walk away. We made several trips to the Starbucks, located just down the street. Columbus Street has several restaurants with outdoor seating. We ate at the Five Horses Tavern and found the food delicious.

Lisa was very helpful and provided great customer service. She was responsive to any issues that arose. I would definitely recommend this rental to my family and friends.

Perfect for family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Lisa's "home" was such a pleasure. The South End location is charming and within an easy walking distance to many stores and attractions. The apartment was very clean and comfortable for our family, and amenable to hosting additional dinner guests. The kitchen is roomy with new appliances with a generous supply of dishes/cookware; Lisa even provided additional items upon request. The washer/drier units were put to use after we got caught in the rain and to freshen our laundry before going home. All of this made for a relaxed, nice vacation.

With all of the positive points just said, I have to note that the real joy was working with Lisa! After we had an initial glitch with opening the front door, Lisa had help lined up and they came promptly. She kept in contact with us via email and we always felt that we were in good hands. Overall, this has been one of our better experiences. Thank you for sharing your home and we look forward to hopefully returning in the future.
