We know Boston and it's surrounding areas very well and will be happy to help you move around or find fun things to see and do. We do not live in this apartment but it is in the same house as the apartmen we do live in and I am available almost 24 hours a day. Also, you are welcome to come to our apartment any time you like.

Soledad and Rodrigo were great. We arrived, they gave us the keys and we unpacked. Super convenient and easy to work with. The place was amazing with tons of windows for natural light and the beds were really comfy as well. We only stayed one night so I can't comment on the neighborhood too much or public transport but Soledad and Rodrigo sent a huge e-mail before we got there on places to eat and public transport so if you had any questions they were very quick to respond to anything that I had asked. Very satisfied and would stay here again in Boston if it was available.
Soledad greeted us at the door when we arrived to show us around the apartment. It was exactly as pictured and perfect for all out needs. She helped us get situated and navigate to the train which was very close by.
The apartment itself was great. Everything we needed to cook was provided. There was also a coffee maker (aka lifesaver). We didn't hear anyone above or below the apartment during the day or while sleeping, which is always nice.
A parking pass was provided for the car that we drove up in. It saved us from trying to figure out what to do like previous years visiting during marathon Monday
All in all, the experience was great! Soledad was so helpful in all regards. Her apartment was on point and exactly as described. I would gladly stay there again!
Nice and clean apartment. Fine restaurants in the neighbourhood, very close to Boston. Soledad and Rodrigo were very nice and helpful, we felt like at home.
Top choice for a stay in Boston.
Soledad is very welcoming and the apartment is light and airy. The beds are very comfortable and the neighbourhood is quiet and friendly. We had a lovely time here exploring Boston, including Buddy 's Diner just around the corner. Kath
Very helpful and accommodating. Helped us know how to navigate around the city. :) and the place is super nice too! :)
Soledad ist super freundlich. Sie gibt sehr viele Informationen und gute Tipps für Boston.
Das Appartement ist zu empfehlen um Boston und Umgebung zu erkunden. Es liegt sehr schön. Das Wohnzimmer ist schön hell und gemütlich. Im Appartement ist ausreichend Platz für vier Personen ist. Es ist alles da was man braucht.
Wir haben uns in der Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles war sehr sauber und so, wie auf den Bildern. Wohnung liegt in insgesamt guter Lage zur U-Bahn und in einem netten Viertel mit schönen Häusern. Die Wohnung war gut beheizbar, so daß wir uns von den kalten Außentemperaturen schön aufwärmen konnten.
Bei der Ankunft sind wir einige Stunden zu früh gekommen, das war für Soledad aber kein Problem, wir konnten sofort die Wohnung beziehen. Alles unkompliziert und ohne Probleme. Soledad ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit und war jederzeit zu erreichen, (wohnt im Nachbarhaus).
Fazit: Jederzeit gerne wieder, 1000 mal besser und billiger als ein Hotel in Boston. Vielen Dank)!

I, Soledad am Chilean and Rodrigo is Colombian. We are social, lovers of all things art, music and travel.
My hispanic upbringing made me hospitable and domestically inclined. I love great food as a social ritual and cooking as an expression of love.
We are open hearted and abhor judgemental people. We love life and find joy in the tiniest of things.
We enjoy experiencing places by meeting "normal" people doing everyday things.
