Or drive to Wellington Station and park your car and take the Orange Line Train into the city. You can purchase your Charlie Card at Wellington Station. Depending on time of day and mode of transportation it takes approximately 15-30 minutes to get into the city from my location in Medford.
Family Vacation: Come visit Boston and enjoy all that it has to offer. Use this home as your 'home-base' and explore the surrounding areas. Take a boat to Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod, the train to New York City for a Broadway show, or rent a car and drive to Kittery for outlet shopping, a lobster dinner or a walk on the beach. You are in a perfect location to explore what Boston has to offer at an affordable rate.
Corporate Housing: Relocation can be difficult, especially when you can't take your family with you - at first. Being comfortable in your surroundings is important when you move into a new city. We know you'll feel comfortable and at home with the spacious surroundings and friendly neighbors.
Events in Boston: If you have a wedding, convention, looking at colleges in the area or another special occasion to visit Boston - this home is a wonderful place to come and stay with your friends and family. Please be aware - this is not a 'party house' - please respect our wishes.
We fell in love with the home itself and its location - a short walk to Medford Square and it's close proximity to Boston. The 2nd floor rental apartment is spacious and bright and can accommodate 6 guests comfortably - all in beds (not sleep sofas or futons). You can walk to everything Medford has to offer - restaurants, bakery, banks, liquor stores, bus stops, etc. We are proud to offer our guests a beautiful, clean, and well-maintained property in a safe area for you to enjoy while in Boston. Come experience our "home away from home" for yourselves - we look forward to meeting you!
We couldn't be happier with your lovely apartment. Thanks for all. I hate to leave.

What a treat it was to stay here! A perfect location between our relatives and the lovely city of Boston. And a wonderfully comfortable and spacious place to stay. Thank you!

I can't say enough about how wonderful this rental is! After spending some time in Boston for a conference, it was so nice to have an extended girls weekend with friends. Rosemarie was so responsive when I had questions for her, and although we didn't get a chance to meet, she made sure we had everything we needed. This rental has all the personality we were looking for with plenty of space, fun interior decorating, and the beds were very comfortable. Rosemarie and Guy provided plenty of transportation information as well as restaurant menus which came in handy to order in our first night there. We ended up using Uber while there, and it was usually just a quick $10-12 ride to downtown Boston to do our sightseeing. This rental really has everything - the character, amenities, location, and wonderful homeowners! I highly recommend this home away from home!
Our stay here was fantastic! The home owner welcomed us and gave us the privacy and comfort we expected. The home has been well cared for and everything was ship shape and bristol fashion. Wouldn't hesitate a moment to recommend the home or the homeowner's other properties. We enjoyed the North End tremendously... Giacomo's Ristorante was fabulous. Pizzeria Regina did not disappoint either. Walked the Freedom Trail and enjoyed some of our nation's history. Check out the Printing Office of Edes and Gill to see how things were done before electronic social media.
Muchas gracias por compartir tu bello hogar!

Queremos quedarnos aqui y no irnos de Boston!

Arrived at this lovely apartment after a very long journey from England, we drove from the airport very easy to find, parking was no problem over the road, on a side street.
The apartment was just as described and extremely well equipped the smallest personal things make this apartment feel like home from home.
The cleanliness of all the place was excellent.
What can we say about the lovely comfy beds and pillows, so comfy
The location is ideal not far from bus stops to take the bus to Sullivan Square then onto the train into Boston., also within easy walking distance of restaurants.
The service we had from Rosemarie was superb, answering all our questions almost immediately (5 hr time difference)
If we return to Boston we would most certainly use this apartment again and will recommend to others.
My wife and I recently spent three days at this apartment. We have stayed at many places all over the world. What was so special about our stay here was the details that the owner has gone through to make this a very comfortable and cozy apartment. For example, plenty of spices, coffee, paper towels, milk, juice, sugar, tea, Q-tips, kleenex tissues, large clean towels in bathroom, etc.........Many vacation rentals could take note of spending/charging a few extra dollars but providing you with minor but very important details.
The apartment was located in a quite and safe neighborhood. We were able to take Uber into town about a $15-20 fare depending on traffic. We also took advantage of taking the Metro - Bus 326 is an express bus that runs from 6 - 9 a.m. and from 4 - 9 p.m. The fare is $5/pp and it takes only 15 minutes to get to town. The apartment has a fast wifi. There are also some very good restaurants that are walking distance from the apartment. Overall a very pleasant and relaxing stay.
What an amazing home away from home! We immediately felt the care that has been put into this property. Everything we needed was here, at our fingertips. Rose is so delightful and her communication through the whole process has been nothing but positive. We hope to be back in 2 years when our daughter graduates from grad school at Tufts. Thanks Rose!!
