Nice little apt in a tourist area

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed 3 nights/4 days. The apt is small and quaint. The building and rooms are beautiful and well maintained. Jose was a very nice manager and gave us helpful tips on where to go in Boston to sight see. He was very accommodating and hospitable. We stayed in room 5. We only had 1 minor issue, our cable was out for the first 2 days. However, we were not in our room long enough to really be concerned. Do NOT bring a car as there is NO parking except for paid lots, meters and garages. The garages and lots being very expensive to park in. We walked everywhere and ended up paying just under $80 to park our vehicle for 2 1/2 days in a car lot. Saturday's after 8 pm and Sundays are free parking at meters. Overall, it was a very wonderful experience and I would recommend a stay at this location. One last thing, be prepared to climb perhaps up to 4 stories for your stay. Kept us fit. Enjoy!

Perfect comfort, best location!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful surprise! The room was very spacious and comfortable. Bed was super comfy! But the real treat is the location! We walked everywhere. Great coffee shops, restaurants and shops. And Jose is a treat! Thank you for taking care of us and thank you for loaning us your bumbershoot for the refreshing downpour!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Location was great & the house was very nice. The neighborhood had a lot of restaurants within walking distance. Transportation was very accessible also. The area felt very safe and the neighbors were friendly. It would have been nice to have a full length mirror in the room or at least a mirror that had better lighting around it, it was very hard to use the only small mirror in the room. Just saying, from a women trying to dress and put on makeup for a wedding party! Union Park was within walking distance & had a nice park & beautiful homes. Kava, a Greek restaurant on Shawmut Ave was excellent.

Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 days on first trip to Boston. Found Dominic to be gracious and caring host. He even assisted us by putting our bags in our room while we were out. The location is within walking distance of the T, the Hop of and On stop and

our rental car pick up. Boston was a great place to visit and having a convenient place to stay was a bonus. Try the "Deluxe" at the corner for a great meal.

Great Boston apt

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit #7 which was like a little apt for the week. It was great! When we arrived, we had arranged to use the lock box to get in, which was super easy. We knew there wouldn't be an elevator, so we carried our bags up to the top floor. The location of this place is wonderful. You are so close to the Back Bay station and the surrounding neighborhood is very picturesque with all the red brick buildings. We were able to get to the sights we wanted to see with ease, including Salem. Boston is such a walkable city, and having a place to ourselves to come back to each night was so comfortable. We were able to text the owner details about leaving, and stored our bags for a few hours before we had to be at the airport.
