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.

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.

Quiet and convenient

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 35th anniversary. We enjoy getting to know new cities by walking and it was easy to do so from this location but also offered the ability to take public transportation due to it's convenience to the subway station. There were also some great restaurants nearby--Picco and The Beehive. We arrived a bit early but were allowed to leave our luggage and given recommendations on where to eat. The room was clean and had all of the amenities expected other than a coffee pot. It is located in a quiet neighborhood. We would stay here again.
