Description

The space

Renovated in July 2013, our apartment is an attached, two level, one bedroom unit with a private entrance. It has a fully stocked kitchen, dinning room, living room, bedroom with walk-in closet, and a full bath. There is a queen-size bed in the bedroom and a pull-out sofa in the living room. The closet in the bedroom is large and empty with carpeting and could easily be a slumber space for young kids or perfect for a pack 'n play (our kids would be happy in there). The unit has wifi, cable TV, central air conditioning, and washer/dryer. It is fully stocked and organized for long term stays. We have designed it to be something we would like to rent when we spend a month away. We wash every item that has been available to the previous tenant: all blankets, duvet cover, towels, bathroom rugs, sheets, etc. There is no smoking allowed in the apt or on the property.

Guest access

There is a keypad on the door, so you can arrive anytime you'd like after the check in time. We will send you the code when your reservation is confirmed..

Interaction with guests

Since we live next door we are often available. The easiest way to reach us is to text or call (cell phone numbers listed in welcome book). We also have plenty of neighbors, friends, and family in the area who can help.

The neighborhood

Location, location, location.
Our apartment is located in the heart of Brookline, one mile from the Boston border. The three town centers are each a 10 minute walk: Coolidge Corner, Brookline Village, & Washington Square. It is a 5 minute walk to the subway to Boston, Cambridge, and is a 10 minute ride to Boston (Green Line for the MBTA) and on the bus route to the Medical Area.

In Brookline you will find every nationality restaurant in these centers. There are dozens of places to get sushi, Indian, Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Two Kosher Middle-Eastern, Noodle Bars, Lebanese, Italian, Sports Bars with a full menu, French Crepes, Vietnamese, Kosher and non Kosher Chinese. Upscale traditional American (The Fireplace), Spanish Tapas, two Russian restaurants, and a brand new vegetarian take-out called Clover Food Lab in Brookline Village. Almost every restaurant will deliver.

The oldest, continuously run independent movie house is in Coolidge Corner. It shows amazing films that you won’t see anywhere else and it is right across from Brookline Booksmith, a fantastic independently-owned bookstore.

There are also lots of museums, theaters and performance centers in the area, as well as, historical sites to visit. All are on one of the public transportation lines (Green line - C train):

There are many more, but these are the big ones.
•The Museum of Fine Arts
•Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
•Boston Science Museum
•Harvard Museum of Natural History and Art Museums
•MIT Museum
•Institute of Contemporary Art
•Quincy Market

This place was great! Location was perfect. Easy to get downtown and any place you wanted to go. It was much better than being in a hotel.

Deb's place is spacious, bright and well-furnished. It's not close to the city center but the green line is only five minutes walk from the apartment and takes you straight downtown in 20 minutes. The neighbourhood is very quiet, shops supermarkets and cafes are 5-minute walk away. Deb and her husband were friendly and helpful.

Deb and Eli were really responsive and they answered all my questions in a timely manner. The place was really cute and it was perfect for 2 people. Really clean and the place made my first trip to Boston a great one. Too bad it was snowing/raining when we went but we still had a great time overall!

This was a lovely place and I would stay again. It is clean and comfortable and very close to public transit. The owners responded quickly to my questions and were very welcoming. For us, it beat staying in a hotel by a mile for the convenience of cooking meals, doing laundry, feeling at home, and cost savings. We have stayed at many vacation rentals in many cities and this one is highly recommended in every way.

This apartment was exactly what we needed to go visit Boston colleges. 10 minute walk to the Summit T stop on the Green C line. Lovely area of Brookline with many restaurants and shops. Very clean and well appointed apartment. We will definitely stay again when we are back in Boston.
