We loved this property! When we first entered the penthouse we were surprised how big it was. This is a great location for a couples get away. The balcony and roof top were perfect to watch the sunset and see the clouds roll through the city. 10 out of 10, would stay here again!

Reviewer Comments:

Charming apartment, with good amenities. Just as described. Its on the 4th floor, so stairs may be difficult for some. But balcony with grill is nice. A busy street, so a little noisy, but close to subways, coffee shop, restaurants, grocery. Property well maintained. Had a little difficulty getting internet connections, but property management was very responsive to emails. Loved the 224 Boston St restaurant next door, and the Dorchester Brewing around the corner. They have a caterer/food trucks each night to get dinner along with craft beers. It looks to be in a neighborhood being regenerated. Felt safe walking to the JFK/Umass subway station (13 mins). Only 3 stops from the major subway hub downtown. Would definitely recommend and visit here again.

Reviewer Comments:

Pretty comfortable apartment, nicely displayed. My family loved the terrace and its view over the city. Two points to regret : you definitely need a car to go downtown + a bit noisy (air-con in evenings from the nearby restaurant + early awakening because of the traffic). This is however quite acceptable.

Owner's Response: Thanks Pierre! I would like to point out to others that the subway is 12 minute walk away and a quick ride to downtown. A car is absolutely NOT necessary. And yes, the fan from the lovely restaurant is a bit noisy when out on the terrace, but it is not heard from inside the unit. Glad you stayed and please come again!
