Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing stay in this perfect one bedroom Bar Village apartment. It was very clean and perfectly ready for me upon arrival and check in was very simple. Duncan was very welcoming, hospitable, and quick to respond. The location was an easy walk to everything and very accessible. I found it to seem much roomier than the photos. I would stay in this apartment each time I am back in Boston!!

Convenient location, comfortable apartment, felt like we lived in Boston.

  • 5 of 5

Only a few blocks from Boston Common in a residential neighborhood, this location and atmosphere were perfect for giving us a feeling of living in the heart of Boston. The 4th floor location, up spiral stairs, was like walking up into history and gave us the experience of city living. The apartment was clean and comfortable and was a perfect choice for our stay in Boston. Duncan was welcoming and very helpful. We’re very pleased with our choice to stay in this wonderful rental.

Great Location/Price

  • 5 of 5

The owner was extremely responsive. The apartment is nice and very clean. It suited our needs perfectly! We were able to walk to close by restaurants as well as catch a quick Uber to the North End. I highly recommend this apartment and would be happy to stay here again! Thanks for everything!

Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

I stayed 5 nights for a professional conference in town in order to save a bit on hotel fees. This is a great location, easy walk to Copley Square and public transportation options. Plenty of restaurants close by. It is on the top (4th) floor so no noise from anyone above. Neighborhood was quiet. Very clean apartment, uncluttered. Bed was comfortable and I awoke rested every morning. Internet worked great. No TV or radio. I loved the French press coffee maker. Kitchen was equipped with stove, refrigerator, microwave, basic wares. Dry goods such as rice, basic spices, oil and vinegar were in the kitchen. Duncan was always kind and helpful, responded to questions very quickly. I hope to stay here again next time in Boston.

Conveniently located cozy and quaint gem of a location to rest our heads.

  • 5 of 5

The most obvious quality to this apartment is that the owner obviously cares a lot about his visitors, before we had even left on our travels to Boston the owner had already welcomed us and offered his services if they were needed. Once we arrived to the property it was clear to see the location was a quiet quaint little Street not a lot of hustle not a lot of bustle. The unit itself is very clean, is on the top floor and while small in size it is big on comfort and character. Being on the top means you don't get the noise from neighbors up above and nights were very quiet and uneventful. The kitchen is well equipped and met our every need. Most days we made breakfast at home before heading out, coffee from the French press was a welcome addition. Previous guests have contributed to the kitchen "pantry" as did we. It was nice not having to repurchase everything that we couldn't bring with us. The location was perfect, we could walk everywhere we wanted to and some places we discovered while en route. There are so many great cafes and bakeries nearby that we intentionally spent most of our Saturday just sampling as we walked around, it was so enjoyable! Typically when we visit Boston we come with a group, this year we took it more like a couple's retreat and to be honest I enjoyed it more this way partly in thanks to Duncan, his hospitality and his home. Thank you so much.

Great location close to Boston Common and Downtown

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Duncan's lovely apartment in a wonderful older neighbourhood. The air conditioner kept the apartment cool on a very hot week! Duncan kindly left fresh milk and cereal which was appreciated. There was also rice, various spices and oil for cooking. Shampoo and body wash were supplied in the bathroom as well as plenty of toilet paper and paper towels. Additional towels and linen were also available. We found the bed very comfortable and slept great every night. Pamphlets and brochures with attractions in Boston were available on the table which was helpful for planning our days. Duncan also provides free use of a washer and dryer including laundry soap which was greatly appreciated.

The only issue that we ran into was the cleanliness. Duncan was away and had hired cleaners to prepare the apartment before our arrival and they did not do a good job. The bed was not made and we needed to clean and wipe down counters in the kitchen and bathroom as well as the shower. The microwave had not been cleaned either. Duncan responded to our email quickly and was made aware of the issue. I'm assuming he will speak with the cleaners or hire new ones so this doesn't occur again. I would've appreciated a refund of the cleaning fee but overall it was a positive experience and I would stay here again since the location is so close to everything.
