This is a great area to walk around with our two young daughters. The apartment was quirky, but in a way we really enjoyed. It was fun to sit out on the front steps, or in the back patio. Everything we wanted to do was a 20 minute walk within a vibrant area. We could picture ourselves living there!

Quirky and spacious apartment in the best part of Boston

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this south end apartment. Communicative owner with an easy check in and check out process. The apartment was unique and spacious, with plenty of room for us to socialize and enjoy our meals. And we just adored loved the location: quiet, safe, and close to some of the best restaurants in Boston. Thank you!

Great location, quirky space

  • 5 of 5

Dr. Smyer was very responsive and very accommodating. There were 5 of us and we all fit comfortably. The place has a very quirky layout that's hard to get a handle on from the pictures, but it had everything we needed. The best part is the location, on a beautiful street smack in the middle of the South End, a short walk from the Back Bay Station, and very near Newberry St. for great shopping. The only drawbacks about the place are the beds and pillows...ouch.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 3 adults, 2 young children. The location was great, only a couple blocks away from the T (Orange Line - Back Bay Stop). Please note there are 2 ways of walking to the Back Bay T stop, one way is a little faster. There are 2 bedrooms on the main level and 1 full bathroom, then there is a third bedroom and bath on the lower level which is shared with the kitchen and living room. A large set of curtains is available for privacy. Overall, this house/apartment worked great for our family. The hostess was extremely easy to work with and very flexible with our schedule. One suggestion would be to have some suggestions for eating, grocery shopping, etc in the area.

I highly recommend this place and hope everyone has a good of a time as we did. Boston was a friendly, wonderful place to visit!
