Even with all the snow, we had a wonderful stay in Boston. Lance is a super host and even has an app to make things easy for the guests. The rental is beautiful and in a brilliant location, close enough to access everything with a quick trip on the T or uber, but far enough to have somewhere quiet to unwind after a full day.
Our stay at The Sawyer was amazing! We booked the unit for the week of Christmas, and I can say that it certainly worked as a home-away-from-home for the holidays. The unit was spacious, clean and organized, and all arrival and departure instructions were clear and simple. Kitchen appliances were up-to-date and there was enough eating space for about 10 people, which made it a perfect space for holiday celebrations. There were five of us staying in the unit, though I'm sure it would comfortably accommodate six, if needed. Beds were comfortable and there were extra clean towels, which made us feel like we were on a true vacation. We also had no trouble finding the nearest T stop (Savin Hill), which was clearly outlined in the Swank Properties App. Above all, the host service was excellent - I received prompt replies in all email correspondence, and the host made me feel very comfortable to reach out if I needed anything. I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a place to stay in Dorchester!
The apartment was great - well furnished, clean and a great place overall. The instructions were also very clear and crisp. Would love to stay there if am in Boston anytime. The accessibility to the "T" is also very convenient as its just a 10 min walk. Great place to stay if you are in the Boston region and need access to the "T".
This is an absolutely beautiful, modern, and updated unit. For us, it was also very centrally located as we visited family in Southie, Quincy, Falmouth, and took in all of the Boston sites. We rented a car and easily found parking directly in front of or across the street from the unit. But we mostly utilized the T, which was a short walk away. We loved the neighborhhod and often walked to the Savin Scoop, a little ice cream shop a short walk away, near the T stop. There were plenty of towels for our group of five and having a washer/dryer in the unit really helped with packing light for the trip. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet, convenient location in the Boston area.
This condo is in excellent condition and is state of the art. Top notch and top class.
