Nitzan was easy to get in contact with and the whole process was well organised.
The location was great and the apartment was as described in the listing. Well presented and comfortable.
I would not hesitate to recommend in the future.
Nitzan is a delightful host, warm and welcoming, full of information about the area, dining and sights to see. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met!
Nitzen was the most amazing host, very informative, welcoming, full of information about the area and local amenities. Nitzen was especially kind to us during our stay. The condo is just beautiful, very peaceful, beautifully decorated and very high end. The location was just perfect for us and we enjoyed Charlestown, a beautiful area, wonderful neighborhood and location on the water, great food, friendly people and convenient to everything with great public transportation at the doorstep, good parking under building too.
We would definitely stay again! Thank you Nitzen
The condo was exactly as advertised, which is to say we were extremely happy with it! It was actually even more spacious than the pictures can show. We had plenty of room for two adults and a baby and there was ample storage. We were staying over Christmas and it was so nice to feel like we were in a nice comfortable environment when we woke up on Christmas morning. The whole place is very homey.
Nitzan was a great host! He met us at the building and showed us around the apartment. He even brought us bagels and cream cheese which was extremely appreciated considering we arrived on Christmas Eve and everything was closed the next morning! He was also extremely responsive when we had a couple of small issues crop up.
The navy yard still doesn't have a lot of amenities (but there are a few stores/restaurants around), but it's a nice safe feeling area and it's extremely convenient to get downtown and for us to see family and friends in the greater boston area.
Overall, it was a great stay and we would definitely stay here again!
Nitzan's apartment was superb, with great attention to detail. When I had trouble getting the oven to work, Nitzan came over and troubleshooted it for us. The apartment was across the street from a shuttle stop to get into downtown Boston, or a short cab ride into the city. A lovely place, would stay here again.
Lovely building and unit, very comfortable for our stay in the Navy Yard. Nitzan was a welcoming host and met us promptly, and was responsive quickly to any needs. He also graciously left us some food basics and coffee makings, which was very much appreciated.
