Conveniently located cozy and quaint gem of a location to rest our heads.

  • 5 of 5

The most obvious quality to this apartment is that the owner obviously cares a lot about his visitors, before we had even left on our travels to Boston the owner had already welcomed us and offered his services if they were needed. Once we arrived to the property it was clear to see the location was a quiet quaint little Street not a lot of hustle not a lot of bustle. The unit itself is very clean, is on the top floor and while small in size it is big on comfort and character. Being on the top means you don't get the noise from neighbors up above and nights were very quiet and uneventful. The kitchen is well equipped and met our every need. Most days we made breakfast at home before heading out, coffee from the French press was a welcome addition. Previous guests have contributed to the kitchen "pantry" as did we. It was nice not having to repurchase everything that we couldn't bring with us. The location was perfect, we could walk everywhere we wanted to and some places we discovered while en route. There are so many great cafes and bakeries nearby that we intentionally spent most of our Saturday just sampling as we walked around, it was so enjoyable! Typically when we visit Boston we come with a group, this year we took it more like a couple's retreat and to be honest I enjoyed it more this way partly in thanks to Duncan, his hospitality and his home. Thank you so much.

Great location close to Boston Common and Downtown

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Duncan's lovely apartment in a wonderful older neighbourhood. The air conditioner kept the apartment cool on a very hot week! Duncan kindly left fresh milk and cereal which was appreciated. There was also rice, various spices and oil for cooking. Shampoo and body wash were supplied in the bathroom as well as plenty of toilet paper and paper towels. Additional towels and linen were also available. We found the bed very comfortable and slept great every night. Pamphlets and brochures with attractions in Boston were available on the table which was helpful for planning our days. Duncan also provides free use of a washer and dryer including laundry soap which was greatly appreciated.

The only issue that we ran into was the cleanliness. Duncan was away and had hired cleaners to prepare the apartment before our arrival and they did not do a good job. The bed was not made and we needed to clean and wipe down counters in the kitchen and bathroom as well as the shower. The microwave had not been cleaned either. Duncan responded to our email quickly and was made aware of the issue. I'm assuming he will speak with the cleaners or hire new ones so this doesn't occur again. I would've appreciated a refund of the cleaning fee but overall it was a positive experience and I would stay here again since the location is so close to everything.

Perfect location, everything we needed, cosy, quiet, clean & well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Boston flat. It was exactly as shown in the photos. Perfect for a couple. It is pleasantly decorated, the bed was quite comfy, and it had everything we needed for self catering.The hosts were very helpful, answering questions before arrival, and were also very welcoming even though our flight from Europe was late. The location in Bay Village meant we could walk everywhere. We only had to use public transport to go to Cambridge. The location also meant we were only ever a short walk from a huge choice of dining and shopping options.

Would highly recommend this flat for anyone who is not challenged by stairs, as it is a 4th floor walk-up which did not bother us one bit.

Beautiful bright, clean apartment in a great area of Boston

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Great kitchen, cosy living area and the bed was super comfortable. The photos don't really do the place justice! On the top level so you also get lovely views. Would highly recommend.
