  • Charming, clean, and safe - with access to everything!

    "We stayed in two apartments at this location, one on the 3rd floor and one on the 2nd. Both were well-appointed and quite charming. Apartments were clean and fully functioning. The location was convenient to the T station, which we used to get around everywhere in Boston, from Somerville to Cambridge to Watertown to the Boston Common. We were able to walk to restaurants in the area. We ate at Five Horses Tavern, within walking distance. We highly recommend Banyan Bar + Refuge – one of the best restaurants we’ve eaten at anywhere in a long time! A Starbucks is right across the street and convenience stores with groceries are just doors away. We were also able to easily walk to the South End Open Market on a Sunday. We encountered a beautiful community garden on the way. A laundromat is just downstairs in the next building – check the hours, though. We planned to do laundry our last evening before heading to the next leg of our trip in Washington DC and arrived too late to start a load. We took an Amtrak train from Boston to DC and it was very simple to get from the apartment to the Amtrak station. There is a lot of character in the neighborhood – we were surrounded by beautiful brownstones. We were surprised at how quiet the apartment was. We expected Tremont to be a noisy street, but we were able to keep our windows open and not hear a lot of traffic noise. There are some steep steps to the apartments – so if you have any trouble with stairs, this may not be the place for you. We stayed with our adult daughter and she felt very comfortable on the sofa pull-out bed. Glenn and Kevin were both so helpful with answering our questions and preparing for our arrival both before and during our stay. We would definitely stay here again!"

  • Great family vacation home

    "My family of 14 stayed in this home and we had a wonderful time! This home had plenty of space for everyone to sleep and everyone had a bed! The bedrooms were all fairly large and there was plenty of space to relax and hang out. There were 2 living room spaces to relax and unwind in the evening. A spacious dining room area with a wood burning stove(that we did actually did use to warm up a bit one morning) and plenty of seating. There were 3 showers and 4 toilets, which actually worked out just fine for everyone and the water pressure and hot water was just fine! The kitchen was fully equipped with all your cooking needs with a regular coffee pot and a kuerig. The home is older, but definitely has all the updates and updated, nice furniture. It was very clean. There was also seating in the back yard, with chairs and a picnic table along with a gas grill. The home's location was close to the downtown area in Salem(a couple blocks and a walk through the park). There was a great Pizza place just a couple blocks away called Amazing Pizza....delicious and friendly owner! The commuter train was in walking distance to the house, maybe 10 minutes and we used that for 2 days to get to Boston and back. We took the train($7pp to the north station in Boston) and then had to switch trains depending on what part of town we wanted to go to. We did take an uber to the USS Constitution once and the one way trip was $77! The train was much easier and convenient. You would not necessarily need a car depending on where you wanted to go. However, we did have one car for our group and did use it to run to the grocery store, which is probably not as walkable(except CVS and other shops). We also took an uber from the airport and the cost was about $35/45 vs $65 for a cab(we had one of each) and the ride from the house to the airport is about 45minutes. Cole, the owner, was delightful to work with and replied to emails within a couple hours to a day. We would definitely consider returning to this home if we vacationed in this area again!"

  • Good location - nice home on a pretty street

    "This was our first experience with VRBO and everything went very smoothly. We were moving our son into school with a full car so the onsite parking was appreciated! The apartment is a convenient walk to both Central and Harvard Square T stops. We would like to use this apartment again but it appears to be quite popular. A great value and good alternative to a hotel stay."

  • Convient, Clean, and made our visit to Harvard very enjoyable.

    "We arrived late in the evening and were very happy with how easy it was to locate the apartment and our parking space. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was very adequate. The location with the bus only three houses away and the parking one house away made transportation options very easy. A mini mart just half a block away and other food options very close by. We will definitely return to this apartment when ever we return to Boston."
