find all the light switches. I put in recessed ceiling lights, recessed lights over the kitchen, under shelf lights in the kitchen and office nook, under microwave light, a chandelier and cascade lighting in the window wells, and indirect lighting in the book shelves. There are two lamps one on each of the two bedside tables. Also they didn't know how to turn on the cook top -- but I'm always on my iPhone -- and that could have been handled with a message "how do you turn on the glass cooktop" And I would respond with "1. Put a finger on the keyhole icon, 2. put another finger on the heat you want for each burner one at a time. 3. the burner icons relate to the place of the burner on the cook top.
Ed was a wonderful host and did everything to make me feel as comfortable as possible during my time in Boston. I wasn't aware that the studio didn't have as much lighting as I would have liked, nor was I aware of how tiny the bathroom was, which is why I rate this a 4 out of 5 stars. Otherwise, everything else was most enjoyable. Wonderful location near so many great restaurants and literally a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Pru. Thank you for having me Ed!
Ed was such a fantastic host - very welcoming, friendly and hospitable! On our first day in Boston, there was a snow storm and Ed kindly left a puzzle and some DVDs at our door to keep us entertained. He also showed us around his beautiful and newly refurbished apartments; one of which will be open soon to rent on AirBnb!
The studio we stayed in was on the basement floor of the building. It is very cosy and comfortable, and has a newly redone bathroom. The extra large TV and the generous closest spaces were particularly nice. There is a coin laundry located on the floor above.
The studio is also in a lovely location. It is very close to restaurants, and a short walk away from the grocery store and Back Bay train station.
We had a great time in Boston, thank you Ed!
My wife, Jan and I stayed in Ed's place for nearly two weeks. We had a fantastic time in Boston and the studio was exactly what we wanted. It is in a perfect location in the Southend, close to the T, no.1 and no. 43 buses and you can be in Park Street within 15 minutes. The locality had great shops, take-outs and restaurants. The studio itself was excellent, we had a perfect amount of space, a nice fire we could turn on when it was very cold outside and a huge TV area where we could sit, relax and watch netflix. The kitchen was ideal and has everything you need, and the bathroom is small but very functional. All in all, I would highly recommend Ed's place. He also gave us a tour of the other rooms/duplex available and they are also great! We look forward to staying again and I would highly recommend it. Finally Ed responded within minutes to any requests we had throughout our stay. A great host.
My husband and I stayed in Ed's Studio in Boston and got a wonderful surprise when we descended the stairs into the apartment. It was really lovely. Everything you would need - fully decked out kitchen although we mainly ate out at all the wonderful restaurants and cafes within walking distance. The apartment was surprisingly spacious although as the name suggests - it is a studio - 1 large room. The massive TV was also a nice surprise as was the cable and internet connection and the cord that allowed us to plug our macbook straight into the TV.
Bed was comfortable and the apartment was very clean and quiet - a nice 'hotel feel'.
The location of the apartment was great also. We had never been to Boston before and realised when we arrived we had quite luckily landed ourselves in a great location. We walked into town some days and other days we went via subway.
We didn't end up meeting Ed however, was in continual contact with him up to and during our stay via messaging.
Would definitely recommend this apartment for a single or a couple visiting Boston. Thanks Ed.
The apartment was great. In such a perfect spot. Quiet area and easy walk to all the places you want to go. Edward was so helpful. Great directions and and tips. We had a lovely stay. Thanks
Ed was a wonderful host and the studio apartment was the ideal spot in the South End! It was a huge bonus to be able to have a brand new (and very large) kitchen, as well as a cozy electric fireplace and garden views. Ed greeted me when I arrived and answered any questions I had, great experience.
Ed's garden apartment is a wonderful location in the South End of Boston. It's the perfect size for a couple and the amenities are fantastic. Ed was very welcoming and made us feel at home. We will definitely plan on staying there again as it was such a great experience. Plus, it was our first Airbnb reservation...we're definitely fans now!
I've lived in the Boston area before and was returning for a week to attend a conference at the Hynes Convention on Boylston. I rented the studio for a week, and it worked out very well. The location is excellent, one of the best in Boston: close to Tremont St. with all the restaurants and bars, and just a 5-10 minute walk to the Prudential / Sheraton / Hynes convention (and thus Back Bay). There's a narrow staircase taking down to the studio, which is just under the ground level facing a small parking lot. The place is overall quiet, apart from some road work I could hear in the morning out on W Brookline st. Excellent internet connection, spacious, warm, and clean place, had all the equipment needed to cook a meal and store food. Bathroom was also clean and functional. Also, there's a huge TV which I used only once. The place is ideal for a business traveler or for a young couple visiting Boston. Overall great value and highly recommended!
Marco, it was great having you and... yes it's a great location for conventions -- even the NewConventionCenter is easy enough to get to, but the Hynes is an easy walk. The staircase is narrow -- only 41 inches in diameter -- but the apartment opens up onto a walk out patio with floor to ceiling windows! I planned the lighting so that it would feel like daylight all over the apartment in the day with mood lighting at night. Glad you liked the place. Please come back to Boston, stay here when you do! If you recommend the place to your friends please have them mention your name and I'll be happy to host them. Keep n touch s.v.p. Ed
At the risk of sounding like a broken record I'm going to repeat what everybody has said, Ed is a wonderful host AND the studio was just perfect! It was beautiful, cozy, comfortable and super well located. You can pretty much walk around anywhere (we walked all around Boston and all the way to Cambridge) and if you don't want to walk... you have a couple different T stations pretty close as well. Boston is a beautiful city and if you want to stay at an amazing place where you can have peace and quiet but have the option to walk 5-10 minutes and have a bunch to places to eat & drink, this is the place for you! We will definitely be back!! :)
P.S. Special thanks to Ed for being so awesome and always answering our questions super quickly!
