Great to floor, light and airy two-bed apartment. Disappointing that bedroom two has no window / natural light. Very short cab ride to the city centre.

This apartment will easily accommodate five adults, which means it is a very affordable place to stay. It is well equipped for the people who want to cook and spend quality time in their hired abode. The bus -No 10 from Back Bay Shopping Centre - gives you easy access to the city, whenever you wish. The Uber taxis, provided by FlitWays, were inexpensive for the evening rides we needed [when too dressed up for the bus!]. There is a great hair salon -Impulse Salon -just around the corner on Dorchester Ave.

This house is absolutely beautiful. It was definitely more than we were expecting. The pictures don't do justice to what you will experience. We were not happy about leaving. Our only downfall was that the bedrooms were divided by curtains & a slide door that couldn't be locked (at least we couldn't figure it out) But overall it was definitely a great weekend

Response from Lance:
Thank you for the review! And thrilled that you loved the apartment. The bedrooms are separated by pocket doors, and then covered by curtains. I'm sorry if you did not see the doors! The big pocket door inside the apartment does not lock, but that has never been a problem since its within the apartment and would rarely be locked. Please come again... your group was great!
