Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed at Seth & Kate apartment for the Boston Marathon and it was absolutely perfect. The location couldn't be better for everything related to the race, but it was still quiet and felt like home. The apartment is clean, charming and comfortable and we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this for 4 people traveling to the race!

  • Lovely apartment in beautiful location. Like staying in a luxury hotel suite for a fraction of the price. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Thank you for such a lovely stay.

  • This apartment was neat and clean and in a great location. It has a modern but homey feel. Nice to walk right out to Newbury St and Boston gardens and Comm Ave and Copley Square. The living areas and MBR are decent size for a city apartment and the kitchen has everything you could want. Seth and Kate were easy to deal with and made easy arrangements for access and departure. It might be helpful to let them know exactly what spaces you will need to use, not all was accessible to us. Beautiful night time view from the rooftop terrace.

  • We loved staying at this wonderful condo. My only disappointment was not getting to meet Seth and Kate in person because they seem like family and welcomed us into their beautiful home. The location and accomodations were perfect for our visit. We were in town to run the Boston Marathon. Needless to say, the tragic events of the holiday weekend overshadowed all the good things we enjoyed while in Boston. We hope to stay here again in 2014 and run the race in memory of those who lives were taken or were injured. Thanks again Seth and Kate. We will be back!

  • This was our first AirBnB trip and everything went great. The apartment was exactly as described and Seth and Kate were really helpful. If you don't know Boston, the location on Commonwealth Ave is ideal for exploring, perfect for shopping and within walking distance of all the sights, and close to the T too. We have two young kids and the apartment is child friendly, importantly there is a playground just up the road. Will definitely look to stay with Seth next time we are back in Boston

  • We had a fantastic stay in Boston - right in the heart of the city. A nice apartment with all the necessary components of home - even cooked some dishes for Thanksgiving in the well equipped kitchen! The apartment was clean and comfortable for 3 adults and our communication with our host Seth was easy. We walked everywhere to wonderful restaurants in Copley Square, Beacon Hill, shopped on Newbury Street and took in our favorite downtown sites of Trinity Church and BPL and the public garden. We lived in Boston area for 30+ years and felt right at home again through our experience with Airbnb.

  • Beautiful apartment in an amazing location, Seth & Kate were great hosts - easily contactable and willing to help with local insider info if needed. Hopefully will stay for longer next time!

  • My wife and our friends really enjoyed our stay at Seth's Back Bay apartment! This was our first time in Boston and we were very happy to discover that not only was Seth's apartment very clean and ideal for 4 people, it was in the perfect location. Commonwealth Avenue is a beautiful street and is centrally located for most of what Boston has to offer including downtown, Newbury St., Fenway and Harvard. I would highly recommend this apartment and want to thank Seth and his family for being excellent hosts!

    September 2012
  • We love our stay at Seth's apartment.. Wonderful location and completely furnished. Everything works well. T station is a conveniently short walk away. Would definitely stay there again and will highly recommend to others.
