What a great Thanksgiving!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home...with our entire family...for Thanksgiving and it could not have been lovelier. The house is full of thoughtful detail, with gorgeous woodwork throughout, comfortable beds, great nooks and crannies for privacy and space and the kitchen fully handled a Thanksgiving feast for 9! Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Our two small children particularly had a blast exploring the numerous cool rooms. It is convenient to Newton and Boston and easily accessible...and a great town park is just around the corner, just a short walk through a beautiful Newton neighborhood, for the kids to blow off steam. We would come back again in a heartbeat. And the owners could not have been easier to work with. This home kicked off our holiday season with style and we all left smiling and saying, Let's do it again! Thank you for the hospitality and for sharing your great home.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that our home worked well for your family Thanksgiving. We really appreciated how clean and tidy you left the apartment--it was hard to tell that a family of nine had just enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal! You are very definitely welcome back here anytime.

Comfortable and Charming

  • 4 out of 5
Three adult couples shared this house while in town to race for the Head of the Charles Regatta and it worked out really well for us. We liked having both of the common areas to relax and socialize. The kitchen, with all the full size and regular appliances plus a Keurig for coffee and tea, worked out really well for breakfasts. We'd only suggest providing some small bowls. If they were there, we couldn't find them. There is a Whole Foods market and a Trader Joe's within about a mile. We enjoyed dinner at Hopster's, Henrietta's table, and Italian in Boston's north end.

The bedrooms were all very nice, however the couple on the full size futon may have been less comfortable. Multiple tvs, fireplaces, fans, washer and dryer, and even an ipad were all nice amenities. The house was very quiet given the location near the freeway. We rented a car and had easy access to the race course. We loved the large showerhead in the shower. For six adults it would have been nice to have a second bath or at least a powder room, but we got along fine with just one.

The house is very charming, clean, and well-stocked, and the hosts were very kind. We'd recommend it and would go back again. Thank you for hosting us!

Congrats again for doing so well in your event.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in many VRBO homes and this was by far the nicest. The rooms were spotless and well furnished. The owners (Susan and Richard) were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was stocked with paper products, a case of bottled water and a supply of coffee, K-Cups and tea. The location off of I-90 allowed for easy access to Boston and Cambridge. We will return in the Spring.

Home away from home

  • 5 out of 5
This could not have been more perfect. First off, this house is gorgeous!! What you see is what you get. These photos are spot on. Our family of 5 fit very well in this home with room to spare. There are 2 beds and a very comfortable futon to sleep on and all of the sleeping areas are private. One bathroom with an amazing rain shower head was the perfect way to unwind after a long day in downtown Boston.
Anyone worried about traffic noise? Don't. This house is so quiet! Fans and window units in all of the sleeping areas made it the perfect temp in mid September.

Newton is apx 10 minutes away from all of the goings-on downtown and you will have to pay the toll each time you drive down I-90, but it is a nominal $1.25 to get back to downtown and this house has the easiest access to I-90 there is. The town of Newton itself has most of what you would need including a whole foods and several tasty restaurants that Sue and her husband recommended to us. This house has all of the dishes, cookware, and appliances you need to eat at home as well.

As far as parking goes there was one designated parking spot and we had a standard sized suv. Sue was so kind as to park on the street so we had more room to park. The driveway is tight, but you better get used to that driving ANYWHERE in Boston!

Sue- you thought of everything we would have needed. Your home was so comfy and cozy, it was hard to leave it Saturday morning. I will recommend your home to anyone looking to stay in the Boston area. We thank you so much!
