Very nice and large apartment, great view of the city. As others have said if stairs are difficult for you then this may not be the place for you, but if that's not an issue then you can't beat this place. This is a full-size apartment with lots of room in Master bedroom, the bathroom and the living room/dining room area. Parking off street for one car, but also ten minute walk to Savin Hill T station (red line). Also ten minute walk to shops/restaurants/bar. I could live here indefinitely no problem. 20 minute drive from Logan airport. If you are visiting Boston but want to avoid the ridiculously high hotel prices then this is a great choice.

We enjoyed our stay at SWANK properties. Our appartement was clean, with a nice skyline view of Downtown Boston. Feasible (20mins) by public transport to reach Downtown crossing.

It's a nice spacious apartment with an amazing view over downtown Boston. Rooms were good as well and three of us visiting Boston for a business had a nice stay there. The place is about 10 min walk from the Red Line station which takes to central Boston, Harvard and elsewhere. Conference venue was about 40 min distance for us, but the length of it was compensated by the pleasures of the apartment, plus price as well, which is significantly less than anything close to the centre. The area itself was pretty residential and had not many cafes but the apartment itself was really spatious and with a porch (or how to really call it), so excellent for drinking coffee there and enjoying morning sun. During our 10 day stay there was a small issue with a leak from the roof, but Lance sorted it out fast and it was not a major problem. All in all, we enjoyed our stay there!

Lance's place was amazing! The view was incredible and very close to South Boston. We started their with 6 people and it wasn't cramped at all! It is so spacious! I couldn't believe how affordable it was! We had a great time!

We rent this apartment for 1 month. The check-in and checkout went smooth. I've got the instructions through the app that Lance sent me through email. It helps you to keep things in one place. The pictures provided are real. The place looked exactly as on those pictures. I love the balcony view. It was amazing to have a breakfast on the balcony enjoying the Sky View. The room was warm enough. You can adjust the heater by yourself if you are not comfortable with the temperature. The house is 10 mins to Savin Hill T-station. The one annoying thing is that the bath door sometimes is not closing properly. But in overall it's a great apartment to stay.
