  • 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."

  • A great place in a great location!

    "What a terrific place for a family reunion! The roof deck is killer...we had so many great conversations there. Everything works and the owners and caretaker are totally dependable. We had gorgeous days in a beautiful neighborhood, in a great location. The only suggestion we could come up with is to post a warning on how narrow the parking space is under the roof deck. A micro issue. We highly recommend 8 Symphony Road for literally any occasion!"

  • Cozy comfort and perfect city location!

    "A friend and I spent several nights at this charming studio on Beacon Hill. The location was ideal for our visits throughout the city on foot and using the subway. We LOVED being in the heart of the city. The studio was gorgeous and perfect. We loved the personal touches and attention to detail throughout and the sunset views from the rooftop garden were breathtaking. I also loved the selection of books in Iwona's library (I actually wrote down a huge list of titles to find at my local library); we have very similar tastes in literature . :) All in all it was a most fabulous stay in one of my favorite cities. We did all the tourist stuff on the Freedom Trail, but also loved feeling like a local walking everywhere to shop and dine. Being runners, we also took full advantage of the close proximity to the esplanade and Boston Common for several morning runs. I didn't want to leave! One note about parking - we rented a car for several road drip day excursions and found the easiest and least expensive place to park was the underground garage at Boston Common."
