Recent Greater Boston reviews

  • This property exceeded expectations in every way!

    "After staying at this property, I understand why it has received perfect 5 star reviews. From the location, the owner, the amenities and to the property itself, there is not one flaw I can say about my family's stay in Melrose. Greg, the owner is great, very responsive and goes above and beyond to ensure his guests have a great experience. Even with him being out of town during my stay, check-in and check-out was seamless and he was super quick to reply to any inquiries I had via email/text/phone. The property itself is well equiped with satellite cable service, wifi, a full stock of towels and linens as well as bath supplies (from Trader Joe's!) and laundry detergent. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need including a good stock of spices and condiments which was a pleasant surprise. The house fit my family of 9 comfortably (5 adults and 4 children). The attic bedroom was popular with kids. The only caveat is that the stairs to the attic are quite steep which made me a bit nervous with my 4 year old going up and down. For 2 or 3 year olds, you would definitely want to monitor them. Also, the town of Melrose is a lovely suburb and the perfect home base when visiting Boston. It is only a 10 minute drive to downtown which was very convenient and is walking distance to Main St which has shops, restaurants, grocery and a Starbucks. Thanks Greg for being a wonderful "virtual" host. I would not hesitate to book this property again in the future."

  • Great option on Beacon Hill

    "We are back home and we wanted to thank you for a great time at your flat in Boston. We tried to leave everything as tidy and neat as we found it (parking permit on the desk and keys at the lockbox included). The location is superb, walking distance to all the main attractions in town, the parking is super convenient and close by, Wholefoods on Cambridge Ave is fantastic for every need. Just bear in mind the sofa bed is rather small for 2 so we had to use the inflattable mattress for one of our kids (11 and 13 years old). Other than that (and 4 floors staircase) the flat is perfect.Thanks a lot for your help Bjarni and we hope to be able to be back to Boston and your lovely flat again!"

  • 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!"
