This is a quiet residential building, perfect for travelers wanting a quiet refuge at the end of a fun filled day in Greater Boston.
The space was exactly as described. The location was amazingly close to all of the activity but nicely tucked away out of the hubbub in a quiet neighborhood with nice parks and walkways. The space was clean, pleasant and allowed the 4 of us to all have our own space. We thought we'd be riding the T to get around but found we could walk to pretty much everything we wanted to do for our weekend stay. The book collection, including Boston guide books, was appreciated. We loved the view of the Prudential building at night.
Thanks for the feedback Reta!
I agree wit you, the roof deck closing is a bummer. It happened unexpectedly a few days before you arrived and we hope it wil be fixed soon.
I usually clarify what I purchased for our guest but did forget to tell you about breakfast. I am sorry! It was the middle shelf, but you could help yourself to anything you found.
Point taken about broom (in the kids closet if you came back) and food wraps (under the oven). Thanks for pointing that out!
This apartment was perfect for us - clean and comfortable and the neighborhood is great! This was our first time trying Airbnb and would most definitely do it again based on this experience.
My friends and I needed a last-minute place to stay for a mini-reunion and decided to give Airbnb a whirl. We were extremely fortunate that Cecile and her family listed their beautiful space. Cecile was a fantastic host; providing tips on how to operate things in their home, information about the surrounding areas, and following up with us to make sure we found everything we needed during our stay. She provided quick responses whenever I needed to reach her. The apartment fits 4 people very comfortably and is kept super clean. Their place is located in a quiet neighborhood with many things to eat/see nearby. I hope to stay at their place again the next time I visit Boston!
We recently spent a long weekend at Cecile and Taylor's superb apartment in Back Bay. Cecile and Taylor are superb hosts, perfectly striking the balance between being welcoming/helpful and also leaving you to explore the area and Boston. They were also great at giving us helpful advice for exploring.
The apartment comfortably catered for four people and was left in very tidy condition for us. It is situated in a very charming area of Back Bay, with plenty of attractions and great eateries within walking distance. The apartment and neighborhood easily exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend it to anyone. We would love to come back again.
Cecile, Taylor and their daughter were phenomenal hosts! My husband, mom, sister, and I stayed at her apartment during my 1st trip to Boston and 1st Boston Marathon. Coordination and communication for arrival, departure, and everything in-between was done with ease. The location was perfect for the event. It was conveniently located in the Back Bay area with easy access to the T line and taxis. Shaws, a local grocery store, was right around the corner as was easy access to shopping and trolley/duck tours. The apartment was spacious, clean, and my family absolutely loved the interior décor. There were great instructions that detailed where we would find necessities in the apartment and also guidebooks for our trip. Cecile and her family made us feel so welcome with homemade granola, bath oil, and body butter upon our arrival. There were also signs and paintings in the apartment full of well wishes and support for the Boston marathon, which helped make an amazing weekend and experience one I will never forget! This was my first Air BnB experience. Because it was so positive and better than expected, I am definitely open to doing it again and HIGHLY recommend Cecile’s apartment! Many thanks to Cecile, Taylor, and Elana!
Cecile was a great host! The apartment was perfect for our trip. Very clean, very good located and there was enough space for 4 people to stay. Many thanks Cecile for hosting us!
Absolutely fantastic location, walking distance to everything. A great apartment on a lovely street. Thanks so much to Taylor & Cecile for making everything smooth and easy. We couldn't have asked for better and will without a doubt want to stay again next time we're in Boston
