The kitchen is GREAT! Everything you would need. Properly stocked supplies for bath, kitchen and laundry are a great welcome. Love the unique features of the old home. Plenty of room for visiting and for having privacy. One bathroom can be challenging, but we worked everything out quite well with 5 adults. We will return!

Really quaint and cozy place that was easy to find and well furnished. The neighbors were very nice and quiet and the owner was quick to respond to any questions or needs. Would definitely stay again and recommend!

We wanted to spend 4 days in Boston. As we were driving there, we prefered Lance's apartement, that is not in the city center but we could drive there easily and parking in the street was really easy. The apartment is nicely equiped and we had a great time there. Lance made trip preparation very convenient with his app and was very reactive when needed.

The apartment was great. It's very clean. It's near to everything--airport, Boston downtown. Parking is pretty convenient.

This was an excellent space to stay in Boston! Close to everything we needed to do and a few blocks away from the T. There is a beautiful park at the top of the block that our toddler enjoyed immensely. Place was laid out nicely with plenty of space and updated fixtures. Super easy to check in and out with electronic keyless entry. Will try to stay here every time we come to Boston in the future!
