  • Outstanding Property

    "Wow! What a fabulous house to stay in. We had the pleasure of spending the last leg of our 3 week US tour at the 'Skinny House' and it was the perfect finale to a trip of a lifetime. The house is truly a gem. Although it is described as the 'skinny' house it is actually very spacious inside. We were two adults travelling with a teenage daughter and son and there was plenty of room for all of us. Travellers with mobility issues may find difficulties negotiating the stairs however. The general finishings are to a very high standard. Everything was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a washing machine and drier. The bathroom is small but it has a really deep tub and an excellent shower. Olivia the house manager is wonderful and extremely helpful. She can provide lots of local money saving tips and advice on places to eat/visit etc. We were extremely grateful to her for allowing us a later check out on our departure date as we had a late flight. Thanks again Olivia! The house is on the Freedom Trail and is in itself a tourist attraction. Many tourists stop and take photos of the house and themselves standing outside it. It is ideally positioned for all the attractions and restaurants in the North End and everything is within walking distance so forget the car. We truly did not want to leave as it was so comfortable and quirky. We cannot recommend this property highly enough. If you're planning a stay in Boston this property must be on your shortlist. Should we return to Boston in the future this would be my first choice."

  • 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."
