  • The apartment is very clean and well decorated. The bed is super comfortable, the bathroom is large and you have everything you need. The location is quite central and the access to downtown is easy. Karen was always kind and helpful with us. We definitely recomend this apartment!

  • Excellent host, great at responding to communications and ensuring our stay was perfect. Karen was good for a chat and letting us know the best things to see in the local area.

    This apartment is quite literally 200 metres from Fenway Park. Can't beat the location.

  • Karen was an excellent host. The apartment was very clean and smelled very good. The bed was the most confortable bed I had ever slept on. The bathroom was huge and stocked with lots of amenities. I totally recommend this place if you want to go to Boston. The neighboorhood is very nice and if You like to walk, there is a very nice park nearby. Thanks Karen for sharing your lovelly place.

    Jasper, I am glad you had a good time with us. Please let us know next time you guys are around.

  • Karen was fantastic - she was very accommodating and her place was not only in a great location (Fenway Park) but in immaculate condition.

    She made sure we were well received and had everything we needed. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless. It even had a nice view.

    We were right next to the Green Line to get downtown (or to our parking spot outside of the city). There were excellent restaurants within 6 blocks or so. We caught a Red Sox game and were a 9 iron away from Fenway.

    Highly recommended if you need a place to stay in Boston with everything you need within steps of your front door.

  • Hey Karen and Matt, thank you so much for everything. You made my first days in the US as easy and comfortable as possible and put so much effort in making me feel like home. You are so accommodating and lovely hosts. The appartement is exactly as described. Wish you all the best, David

    Thank you David. Have tons of fun in NYC!!! :D

  • The room is exactly how it looks like on the photo. It's like a hotel room, but better. The bed is comfortable, the room is light, big enough and you have your own fridge. There is a big TV, which wasn't working at the time we were there but I'm sure they'll make it work soon. There is also a fridge to put your own stuff in. The bathroom is huge and has everything we needed, like a hairdryer, shampoos etc.

    The apartment has a good location close to the subway and to the Fenway centre, which we thought was more fun than the actual centre. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Karen. Hopefully next time!

    June 2014
  • Great experience (email hidden)e apartment was extremely clean and the perfect location for us as it's only a block or two from Fenway Park. There is a bus line right outside of the building and the train is only a short walk away. Beverages and snacks were in the room for us.

  • I had the most enjoyable stay in Boston. Karen and Matt were wonderful hosts and really exhibited a true sense of hospitality. From the original contact with Karen to arrival and departure, everything was so smooth. The room was very comfortable, and very clean. Thank you so much for making the joyous event of my son's graduation all that much better!

About
My husband and I are a hardworking couple that enjoy the healthy life style and outdoor activities. Myself having been born in Peru and raised in different cities in South America, I love to travel...and luckily I married a man who does also! Our latest adventure has been moving to Boston from California, where I am currently studying to complete my degree and Matt is working in the healthcare IT industry. We love to meet new people and hear about what it's like in different parts of the country and world. We are looking forward to meet you!
