Guestbook comments from the owner

We explored Boston. Ventured into Maine and Cape Cod, and visited Harvard Univ.. It was wonderful being able to spend time together in this wonderful house with the family. A very clean, nice and quiet house for us to have a home away from home. Thanks for letting us stay here. We wnjoyed exploring Boston and then surrounding area.

Book this stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The description of this home vastly understates how wonderful it is. My entire family stayed here for 10 days in July. The weather ranged from 57 to 96. We were completely comfortable at all temperatures, as the home has wonderful air movement. Additionally, the owners have thought of every detail imaginable. The kitchen is so nice, with an excellent range (my kids are serious chefs!). The location could not be better. The area has cute little restaurants and coffee shops, and downtown Boston is 10 minutes away. So, whether you are the type to "be on the run" or "sit and smell the flowers", this is the place to do it!

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five nights while we toured the Boston area. The mostly second-level unit accommodated our family of five quite nicely. We parents took advantage of the "quiet" room on the first level while the kids watched TV upstairs. The full and queen beds along with the two futons made sleeping arrangements comfortable.

The close proximity of the express bus stop helped greatly; though getting a CharlieCard/Bus Pass wasn't the easiest task. Like others, we found that Google Maps did not locate the property correctly. Once we got around this, though, using Google to guide us, using Boston's public transportation was a breeze.

One of our kids has food allergies, and by chance, we found a nut and dairy-free bakery nearby. What a bonus for our vacation.

This house and the provided amenities helped make our vacation a winner.

Comfortable accommodations with a cozy home like feel

  • 5 of 5

The place is just like in the pictures. Very comfortable accommodations for our group of 6. The keyless entry was great. The notes and instructions around the house were very helpful.

Susan was very accommodating of our late arrival, and followed up with me the next morning that we had found everything to be ok. Returned the security deposit promptly the day after we checked out.

The only challenge is that it was slightly confusing to find the house because Google maps kept saying the address was the District Court for some reason. The one way streets around there meant having to take quite a few left turns to get there, but its super easy to get back on the highway. Nice to have a parking spot, but can be a little bit of a squeeze if all three spots are taken, which thankfully was not the case for us.

The express bus is convenient and fast getting in to Boston. Unfortunately we found out that the MBTA daily pass doesn't work on the express buses even though the guy at the info desk at the South transit center said it would. Just unlucky that we got someone who didn't quite know.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I wish I could fix Google to be more accurate with our property location, but not sure I can. I will make sure I write directions in the mobile hospitality APP for travelers. Also thank you for leaving the apt so clean.

Just Like Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay and as usual we were not disappointed. The condo was neat and clean and was well stocked with coffee, tea and paper products.. It is nicely decorated and the beds and furniture are comfortable. We made frequent trips in to Boston and to Manchester, NH. and the proximity to I-90 saved us from sitting in traffic. We will be back again.
