The Neighborhood

The apartment is located just outside of Davis Square which is a safe and trendy area. It is perfect for parents bringing kids to college, visiting on parents weekend or celebrating graduation. It is also a great home base for families/friends to explore Boston, Cambridge and Somerville but also to venture by car to Concord, Lexington, Newburyport, Glouster, Marblehead and other locations outside the city.

The location is 1 block from Tufts University and .5mi from Davis Square (10 min walk) to the MBTA Redline T subway stop. The Redline train goes directly to Harvard Square (5 min - 2 stops) and Boston Charles Street (12 min - 5 stops) away. There is a Hubway bike rental 1 block away at Powder House rotary.

Getting Around

The easiest way to get around Boston is the subway train (called T). The nearest stop is located in Davis Square. Our property is a pleasant 10 min walk to Davis Square and the MBTA Redline T subway stop. The Redline train goes directly to Harvard Square (5 min - 2 stops) and Boston Charles Street (12 min - 5 stops) away. There is a Hubway bike rental 1 block away at Powder House rotary.

Other Things to Note

There is one parking space in the driveway for guests driving in or renting a car. An additional 3-day street parking pass is also provided. Longer stay street visitors parking permits are available for a fee.

The apartment is located on the second and third floors, so guests should be comfortable navigating stairs. The house was built in the 1900s and the stairs are slightly steeper/narrower than new construction which is typical for most of the houses in the area.

House Rules:

- No smoking

- Not suitable for pets

About John Furry

We have owned this property since 2000 and lived in this apartment with our children for 7 years before moving north of Boston to give our family more room to grow. We loved the urban location which is very close to shops, restaurants and parks but is also very safe.

John Furry purchased this apartment in 2000

The house is great.

  • 5 of 5

The owners thought of everything. There is sonos ability to connect to Netflix and a Kuereg. The beds are so comfortable. It is spotlessly clean and stylishly decorated in a clean sofisticated way. We highly reccomend it.

Great location to Tufts, beautifully decorated

  • 5 of 5

This apartment truly felt like our home away from home. We came as a family of four plus two friends to see our daughters’ production at Tufts. The location was very conveniente to Tufts, the T, and area restaurants. It is beautifully decorated and has comfortable beds, and a wel-stocked kitchen. The owners provided us with bottled water and Kuerig coffee. We especially appreciated the combination locks, which enabled guests to come and go when needed. As noted, it has two sets of steep stairs, and the bathroom is on the second floor, while the bedrooms are on the third, so if you have difficulties with navigating stairs, be warned. The owners were very responsive and checked in on us often to make sure we were okay and enjoying our visit. I would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic luxury apartment, great location, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We are former Boston residents and love to return to this great city! The hotel accommodations are often overpriced and underwhelming. We loved this rental. We were a family of 4 adults. There is nothing that this rental is lacking. It is beautifully refinished. There are stores, coffee shops and restaurants in any direction. The public transportation is also very easily accessible. We highly recommend this rental.

Clean and Cozy

The owner was very accommodating. We were given a lot of information about the surrounding area upon arrival as well as things to do. The place was clean and cozy. Nicely decorated. Definitely a homey feel!
