Truly a Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

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!

Cozy home in Medford

  • 5 of 5

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.

Medford Magic

  • 5 of 5

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.

Really Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

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 a gem!

  • 5 of 5

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!!
