Very clean and comfortable apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment fit our needs very well. It is quite charming. And it was very clean, which is a big deal to us. The kitchen has great appliances, including a gas stove. We traveled with our two sons, their wives, and one grandchild. The bedrooms allowed for privacy and the living area and kitchen were large enough to accommodate our group. The driveway being available for parking was a real plus since the apartment is across from a school and the street parking would have been difficult at times. The owner responded to our questions in a timely manner. We would rent this apartment again if we ever find ourselves in Boston!

Extremely comfortable apartment in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as it appeared in the photos/description on VRBO. Very well furnished throughout and exceptionally comfortable bedrooms. The ability for our group of six to sit in the lounge together and watch some TV was a definite bonus. The location is excellent, very quiet street and a short walk up to the pond. Two bathrooms made a big difference, although we only discovered the second one a few days into our stay! (The door was a bit stiff!). Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone (we were visiting from the UK). Central air-con a godsend when it's hot (which it was).

Only couple of minor issues. No washing machine could be a pain for a longer stay, but we just made sure we had enough clothes to last through. Also a breakfast bar with stools in the kitchen would be good, especially when you have children who need to be reminded not to be messy!

A beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. Once we got Chsrlie cards and learned the transit system there was no stopping us. This was a good place to come back for rest.

Excellent Family Vacation Spot in Boston, Close to Metro, Restaurants & Free Parking

  • 5 of 5

We found this property after a lengthy search. We were seeking a property for a Florida family of 5 (3 kids ages 2, 11, 15), meeting up with 3 Canadian Family members driving down from New Brunswick. We needed sleeping arrangements that didn't consist of fold-out couches and offered free parking for 2 vehicles. When we originally found this property, it looked too good to be true! 4 bedrooms, all with Queen sized beds and within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, spas, a drug store and the Metro station. Well, it was perfect, in addition to the above features, this house is within walking distance to Jamaica Pond, a beautiful tree-lined, paved pathway around the pond. I enjoyed the path each morning and loved the opportunities to boat and use the pond too.

We used the Metro system to get to Harvard and tour the museums and the grounds on the first day and then the second day, we went on the Metro to Freedom Trail and had a wonderful day! We started at the U.S.S. Constitution and ate right at the restaurant there at the port, it is worth the wait and try the Clam Chowder!!!! The sandwiches are amazing too! Then, its easy to follow the trail and see all the sites, this is a FULL day but a great day and lots of history!

The Metro is about a 10 minute easy walk from the house.

About 6 doors down from the house is the main boulevard full of shops, restaurants, a wine store, a nail shop and a CVS and 7-Eleven. In addition, about 2 blocks up is a Whole Foods. We used Yelp to find good local restaurants and we tried the Mexican restaurant right across the street, it was excellent, locally-owned and perfect for us. We also pampered ourselves across the street at the nail shop. We made reservations same day and didn't have to wait but it's a busy shop so walk-ins waited.

For the house, there are 3 rented or living spaces on property. The 3rd foor, the 2nd floor that we were on, and the lower floor. All 3 require stairs to enter. Our second floor has the 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, living room, dining room and kitchen. Very modern decor, tasteful decorations, fully stocked with dishes and pots etc. We also enjoyed the lush backyard and the 2nd floor patio off of the back door in the kitchen.

This was a perfect fit for us and I would absolutely return to this home and highly recommend it! The owner David was very responsive during the whole process and we didn't have a single problem during our stay!

Just as advertised

  • 4 of 5

This property was clean, comfortable, and great for our family stay. We were able to park easily on the street, especially on the weekend when school was not in session. The school across the street made parking a little tighter during the week, but was really not a problem. The kitchen and baths are modern, the bedrooms were a good size and had closet space, and the living room worked well for our group with the large couch, lots of chairs, expandable table, and big TV. The only small issues were that the beds and floors were quite creaky (which did not bother us but we wondered about sound traveling to the lower floor), and it would have been convenient to have more glassware. Other than that, the apartment looks just like the photos, the owner, David, was very friendly and responsive, and the location worked out fine for us.

Boston Marathon Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay during the Boston Marathon. The home/apt is very well maintained, very clean and in a nice, quiet neighborhood in Jamaica Plain. 6 of us stayed comfortably. David was very attentive - if we needed anything he would respond in about 5 minutes. Storybook T is a short walk down Boylston which we used frequently to get around town. We really enjoyed our stay.
