We just returned from a wonderful trip to Boston. We really enjoyed having a lovely space to come home to every day. The listing is accurate. The apartment is very clean, with updated furnishings and appliances. The hosts were were available any time we had questions, before and during our trip. Our daughter lives in Boston, so we will defiantly be back and will recommend the apartment to our friends and family.
My husband and I enjoyed staying at Meri's place while attending a conference at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. The apartment is in a nice, quiet neighbourhood and is well equipped, as described. Several restaurants, bars and grocery store are within 10-15 min walking distance. The weather was not conducive to sitting outside, but the porch must be nice in the summer. Internet was fast and flawless. It was easy to use Uber for getting around (bus line was re-routed during our stay).
One reservation were the white marble countertops that need to be covered to protect from possible stains, but plenty of placemats, coasters and paper towels are provided. Also the bathroom, kitchen and living space are on the first floor, while the bedrooms are on the second floor, which was not a problem for us, but may be a concern for people who have difficulty climbing stairs or moving luggage.
We did not meet Meri, but everything was arranged before our arrival (access via combination lock for easy entry) and she was responsive and helpful during our stay. We would certainly consider coming back on our next visit to Boston.
Great house and great location. We had a blast and the house was beautiful.
We had a fabulous stay at this location. Our host was organized, communicative, and provided an accurate description of the amenities and features of the property. She helped us map out available parking during the Boston snowpocalypse, provided great recommendations for grocery stores and surrounding activities, and the house was well stocked with linens, staples, cleaning, cooking supplies.
The neighborhood was very accessible to public transport and walkable to the Boston Convention Center. We had a fifth member of our party and they were very comfortable on the provided air mattress and linens.
Excellent place to "cozy-up" and enjoy Boston. Clean, comfortable, quiet and functional. Loved the nice shower, living space, and kitchen area. Meri is very communicative and attentive. I love to cook and this was the perfect spot.
I truly recommend this apartment. Great location and everything that´s needed for a homelike experience. Very easy to get accommodated - through crystal-clear guidelines provided by the host. Comfortable furniture and all tech-stuff that´s needed.
The ceiling in the stairs left a few bumps in my head though. So if you are above 6" - beware!
But that won´t keep me from trying to rent the place next time in Boston...
The host was exceptionally professional, responsive, and accommodating. Even the finest boutique hotels don't answer questions via text messages within minutes.
