Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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.

  • 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!

  • We had a great stay in Seth's apartment. Large, very clean space - perfect for 4 people. Seth and Kate were easy to get in touch with and responded promptly to any questions - both before and during our stay.

    Location of the apartment was ideal - steps to Newbury Street where you can find excellent restaurants and lots of shopping. 5 minute walk to train station.

  • Seth and Kate were excellent hosts. The apartment is beautiful and the location couldn't be more perfect. They were very considerate and generous with their home. I would be very happy staying there again the next time I am in Boston.

  • Seth was an excellent host! The place was beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. The location was especially convenient. We were provided with all the information we needed and more, so no questions were left unanswered. We had a terrific stay and I would absolutely recommend it.

  • The apartment was just GREAT!
    It's really comfortable and decorated with style. You feel like you're home :-)
    Also, it's well-located in the Back Bay area near Newbury St, with many Art galleries, nice boutiques and restaurants.

    Seth is a great host. Even if we did not have a chance to meet each other, he was helpful and provided us with good advice during our stay.

    We really loved our week-end there and I definitely recommend it.

  • 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.
