Clean, comfortable beds, responsive host.

Liked the location with coffee shops, a grocery store and restaurants within walking distance. Free parking is wonderful. It's very clean and well equipped, just know that it is a third floor walk up with steps to enter.

I highly recommend as long as you're in reasonably good shape!

  • 4 of 5

It's just a short drive from the airport and a pretty short drive to pretty much everything else in Boston that's worth seeing. The only thing of remark that happened was we visited during an usually warm spell in Boston and the AC needed help. The owner was able to send a repairman that same afternoon but we had to leave for a few hours because the heat was pretty uncomfortable for our little ones. Even though the owner was out of town, he was able to respond quickly to all my questions and was very warm and helpful. I will say that if you have bad knees or are not in reasonably good shape, you may want to look elsewhere. The flat is situated at the very top floor of a converted but very aged home. The stairs are dark, narrow, and winding. My family of four - with 2 little ones - was fine going up and down all day long but my parents, who joined us later in our visit to Boston, were a bit vexed. Luckily, they were in great shape for seniors and had no problem with the climb up and down but anyone in less than good shape will find the required climb strenuous. There is no elevator to rely upon in you are fatigued. Towels and linens were supplied. Internet and a very large television were greatly appreciated. My children were delighted to find a set of superior copic markers. The kitchen had all the comforts to make it feel like home. Make sure to make time for a trip to the grocers as soon as you settle in so you can add the final touches to make it home-away-from-home. We did not make use of public transit so I can't comment on that but the driveway was a wonderful bonus and the location made our treks into Boston quicker and easier. If you're adventurous and in decent shape, give it a try! I was very happy with our stay and look to retain this flat again on our next visit if it's available.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write the review. Admittedly, elderly guests would love the easy access of a first floor apt. Our place is located on the third floor. We have regular stairs at both end of the apt, and they are well lighted, although you might need to switch a light on, if other users happen to turn a light off. Our place is extremely clean with professional cleaning crews, which we pay more than we charge our guests. We also provides all we can think of to our guests so that they have very little to buy if any. Our guests found our place conveniently located and offer superb value while they visit Boston vicinity. We will welcome you back in future.

New England Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Boston and the location of the apartment lends itself to either accessing the city via car or by using public transportation. The apartment accommodated all five of us easily and comfortably and we were provided with clean towels, basic toiletries, and a well equipped kitchen for basic cooking. Each room also had plenty of storage for us to store our personal items during our visit. It was clean and well maintained and the directions given made it very easy to find. Yinhai was very friendly and easily accessible by phone or text if we had questions. There is a supermarket and a CVS ~3 minutes from location. There is also free parking for up to 2 vehicles on the side of the apartment and is exclusive to tenants. The only drawback was limited sitting space in the living room and kitchen area, but we mostly had quick "grab and go" breakfast before heading out. Overall we would recommend this location.

Enjoyable stay in Boston!

  • 4 of 5

Nice, clean apartment with 3 spacious bedrooms.

Positives -

Clean apartment, as advertised.

Big bedrooms with comfortable beds.

Off street parking

Easy 5-7 minute walk to the Sullivan Square T Station on the Orange Line...go anywhere in Boston from there.

Negatives -

3rd floor up narrow, winding staircases, no elevator

Living room is VERY small and with 6 people in our party, it was tight. But, we were really only there to sleep so it wasn't a real issue.

Furniture in the living room is more like outdoor rattan patio furniture and is in need of replacing. Again, we weren't there to sit and watch TV.

Overall, the apartment was comfortable and affordable. The host reached out to us to ensure all our needs were met. We would definitely consider renting this unit again on our next trip to Boston.
