Updated, very clean and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Great location to Boston and surrounding areas. The property was very clean! They also provided condiments and laundry detergent as well as towels. Tony was very helpful and easy to communicate with. The free parking was a huge bonus. We could uber to just about anywhere for $10 or less. Would definitely recommend this property.

Loved it! Would use again for Boston base.

  • 5 of 5

All the reviews were spot on. Great place, easy to get to/from (especially with Uber - a little more challenging with bus to T). Could park several cars in driveway (we parked and left our car for three days). House (bottom floor of duplex) is ADORABLE. Very cozy and had everything we needed. Easy walk to all the basics. Three very comfy bedrooms/beds. Very livable living room, dining room and kitchen. Tony was extremely helpful.

Property was very nice. Noise is unbearable! We did not sleep at all one night.

  • 1 of 5

The house is on main road. Buses, cars, sirens, cops, cars blaring music and people walking and talking all night. Property is pretty but does not make up for the noise. There were 4 of us and we were so glad to be out of there. I think it is better to stay in hotel at least you have some recourse to change rooms or get refund. I hated to write this because I also have rental property but facts are facts.

Owner's Response: This is surprising to me. I am absolutely shocked with this review. Our prior guests enjoy the location, size, and the home's convenience. Nonetheless, we do take feedback seriously, and have taken measures to help with the noise. For example, we are installing wall air conditioners, and removing the window units, to minimize the outside noise. The complaint is mainly regarding the front rooms, and so these will be addressed with no problems. I'm surprised that the guest haven't contacted me, and communications exceptionally poor (as in zero communications) during the stay. I would have loved to help resolve any issues, and go above and beyond to figure out a way to help make your stay better.....IF ONLY was provided the opportunity to do so. You are correct. This home is in the city of Boston, within a local residential neighborhood, and that is primarily the reason why our prior guests enjoy the location (as opposed to staying in the suburbs).... As in...... 1. It is right next to the bus line that takes you to Harvard Square in 15 mins, Boston University in 10 mins, Kenmore Square/Station in 15 mins. 2. It is few mins walk to the MBTA Train station, that takes you to Fenway, Boston College, and connections to all other stations. 3. It is only a block from all the various restaurants of all types of ethnic cuisines (Italian, American, Korean/Chinese/Japanese, American, Deserts, Drink Shops, etc. etc.). 4. You are only 6-7 miles from downtown, or 10 mins drive away from all your major attractions. 5. It's absolutely spotless and professionally cleaned every single time, and absolutely spacious with 8ft ceilings. 5. Not to mention you have your own personal driveway in Boston, for up to 4 of your or your visitors' cars!

Would stay here again and again!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean and convenient are just a few of the pros. We had 6 people for 4 days and never seemed cramped. This home away is clean, updated and the decor is very stylish. Extremely convenient to many places and only a short Uber drive to downtown. Would and will stay here every time in Boston! Thank you Tony!
