Awesome stay at The Apple Street and Garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation in Boston. Our accommodation at 83 Appleton was perfect for our group of six. It is located close to transit. If you like walking, you can easily walk anywhere in the city. There is a coffee shop at the end of the street. The street is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. We purchased a Boston City Pass which was perfect. We found a pub on Boylston called The Pour House which had great food with great prices. Ingrid was easy to contact and replied promptly to any questions. I would definitely stay here again.

Charming Garden Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children) had a great experience with this apartment. It was in a great location with many restaurants, shops and the Freedom Trail all in walking distance. The layout is a little bit funky but worked out just fine. My two boys were in the front bedroom, my two girls in the back bedroom (next to the fully stocked bathroom) and my husband and I were downstairs in the kitchen, living room, bedroom space with another full bathroom. Even though it is a garden apartment, it was sunny and bright. It was so clean and everything we could possibly need was there. I would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Boston.

Perfect location and perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was set in a quite neighborhood but yards away from the actions. We walked everywhere! This is a big deal considering we were traveling with a 9 and 10 yr olds. Amenities in the home were very well thought out. The home was clean and tidy. The very accessible yard in the was an added delight for morning coffee. Wish we were staying longer!

Highly recommend staying at this charming home whenever you are in Boston!

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

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!
