The Space

1400 sq. ft. townhouse style penthouse that boasts ALL the amenities that you could be looking for. Open chef's kitchen with gleaming white marble countertops, all stainless refrigerator, built in microwave/oven combination, 5 burner gas range with pot filler, dishwasher, 50 bottle dual zone wine fridge, deep set sink with garbage disposal, marble island that seats 4 with stools, flat screen wall mounted T.V. so the host can catch all the action as well... perfect for all your Emeril needs. The kitchen opens through French doors onto a 15 by 20 foot porch that is equipped with an island size grille.
Inside, the open floor plan allows for a spacious place to gather with a white sectional couch that exudes luxury and comfort at the same time while accommodating 7, to perhaps chat, fireside in front of the marble inlayed pottery barn style gas fireplace or watch a game on the 50 inch flatscreen.
The spa like bath will melt your stress away with 5 Kohler shower heads that adorn the full slab marble walls providing a massive contribution to this luxury in the city. For your convenience, a stackable washer and dryer located inside the bano closet make keeping up with the laundry an easy process...also allowing you to pack less for your stay. Got to have it pressed? No worries, also have a built in ironing board to keep you looking sharp.
The two upstairs bedrooms are both spacious and decorated with class. The master bedroom has a king size bed, built in drawers, wall mounted flat screen, and french doors to a 8 by 4 foot deck that has a view of one of South Boston's bronze cathedrals in the horizon, and is great spot to sip your morning coffee. The second bedroom carries a queen size bed, wall mounted flat screen, closet and crisp scents of the ocean. We also have a queen size air mattress.
This property is located steps to the beach in the City Point section of "Southie". Head outside for a morning run along the beach or over to famous Castle Island and leave your keys behind because this home has keyless entry. Feel like a drink? Head on down to the famous bars from the movie Good Will Hunting... ( L St. Tavern or Murphy's Law) or just walk a few streets up to the well known East Broadway stretch consisting of The Beer Garden, The Playwrite, or Stats. This well sought after area just keeps getting better and better. The newly constructed Seaport district is the hottest area in town and is just a short walk... Seconds to the highway, easy access to the train, on the bus route, minutes to the airport, and steps to the beach... wireless internet, and cable also included. The bus stop that goes into downtown Boston locations is right outside our house... very convenient and runs approximately every 10 minutes during rush hours and then approximately every 20 minutes throughout the day and at night. THIS IS THE BEST BOSTON RENTAL YOU WILL FIND!!!! YOU DON'T WANT TO PASS THIS ONE UP!!!

  • What a great place to stay in Boston! Only 2 blocks from the beach and conveniently close to downtown. The assigned parking spot that comes with the rental was extremely convenient for our car. Meri was great in getting back to me with any questions I had. We loved the kitchen and especially enjoyed the bathroom with the 7 shower heads! We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again. Only concern is that I would advise caution to anyone that has problem climbing stairs.The two bedrooms are located on the second floor, but the bathroom is located on the first floor.

  • Meri's home was the perfect base to visit Boston. With all the amenities we needed, we found it was in a great central location to visit other areas of Boston and the actual neighborhood it is in was wonderful to walk around.
    I do plan on coming to Boston again and won't hesitate to contact Meri for my next stay.

  • Meri's South Boston condo was roomy, bright and clean. We especially liked the attached deck. The combination locked entry made it easy on arrival date (no need to get a key). The neighborhood was great - there are many young professionals. The condo exceeded out expectations, and would stay there again.

  • Our second stay at Meris place was excellent as expected. She even had a couple of new plates and cups, everything else was great as always. The check-in and check-out were easy, parking was provided and the balconies were lovely with the sunny weather. Check out my other review if you want to read more about what is great about this place.

  • Thank you Meri and Jeff!!!! You were such gracious and thoughtful hosts! We had a fabulous time in Boston! Your place is gorgeous! My husband, my parents and I were there for the marathon and were very comfortable. The neighborhood is fantastic and two blocks from the water and a nice little beach area. This was ideal for a little marathon recovery.
    Meri's restaurant recommendations were some of our favorites! Should I make it back to Boston I would love to stay here again. I would highly recommend this place to a friend!

  • Our stay was very very comfortable. The apartment is in a great location with quick access to most parts of Boston as well as having grocery and other stores very nearby.

    As mentioned by others below, the bathroom will simply spoil you, as you'll go home with some home-improvement ideas of your own.

    Though we couldn't meet Meri, she made sure that we had everything necessary.
    Highly recommend staying here!

  • In short words: perfect!

    I have stayed at Meri's apartment with 2 friends for 10 days and hope to be back soon. It is perfectly placed to get Downtown or further South and the Parking spot 3 houses down the road is great to have as street parking fills up fast in the evening.

    The apartment itself bright and filled with sunlight. The Balcony includes a BBQ (which we did not use) and provides for some outdoor siting. And the bathroom is just beautiful.

    Two blocks to the east the street corner features two very nice home style cooking Italian restaurants. They don't look pretty but the pasta was delicious!

    All together an excellent stay, a perfect apartment and nice hosts. Antyime happy to visit again.

  • The place is beautiful, spotless and very comfortable. The location is quiet and accessible to anywhere in Boston. Perfect place to stay while visiting Boston!

  • We came to Boston for a weekend, and had a great experience staying at Meri's place. It's a stunning, clean, spacious space (comfortable beds, too!), great location. Meir was great at communicating and left all the info we needed to make sure we had the best stay possible. Definitely would return. Thank you!!

  • We loved staying at Meri's place while attending a conference at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Centre. Blieve me, the apartment has everything you will need. It is also conveniently located near public transport (bus) that connects you to both downtown and the convention centre. And with heaps of restaurants and takeouts around the South Boston area, and its proximity to the beach, we really had a superb time. I would not hesitate in recommending you stay at Meri's place instead of staying at a hotel.
