This is an ideal location for Boston visitors!!
Back Bay station is located literally around the corner while Copley Square, the Prudential Center, Newbury Street, and SoWA Art district are minutes away. This is an ideal location for walking, as it is central to numerous events, concerts, and conferences. Also, taxi cabs stream every moment right outside your front door. You can arrive from the airport to the front door via the subway or cab lickety-split! After a long day, enjoy the serenity of the river nearby and the plush accommodations of this lofty-feeling residence.
This is a one-bedroom apartment with a full size kitchen. The bedroom is large with high ceilings and numerous large windows. The bed is queen size with a Tempur-Pedic Mattress for extra comfort. Clean bath towels, washcloths, and bedding are provided for your comfort. There is a closet and dresser in the bedroom that is off limits which holds the owners property. The living room offers a second sleeping space, the couch/convertible full-size sofa bed.
The large wooden dining table seats eight for a spacious meal or work space. I also provide access to several boardgames for a rainy or low-key day (Scrabble, Monopoly, Scattergories, Apples to Apples, Uno, and playing cards). I have a large widescreen tv for your use. Although I don't have cable tv, what I have is almost better, Apple TV and Netflix Instant!
I have a full service kitchen in which there is always coffee, espresso, tea, and creamer available to guests. You are welcome to cook if you like, provided you clean up after yourself.
If you want to have something stocked in the fridge or some special flowers here when you arrive let me know and I can probably arrange to have it here for you if payment is received upon arrival.
Although I own a medium sized dog mix (Penny), she will not be on premises during your potential stay. There are two gated dog parks with water fountains in the neighborhood within walking distance. (website hidden) This is a very dog-friendly place to stay. Please contact me with any pet-related questions you may have.
There is a small shared patio at street level that seats four people and offers a small charcoal grill.

**Please be aware that my apartment is on the 3rd floor of the building and is a walk up. It does mean that there are two flights of stairs to walk up. Also, my apartment does have an electronic buzzer, but guests can only enter the building in person.**
You're truly in the heart of it all!!!
Guests are required to clean all dishes used and hang up used bath towels to dry after final use.

No smoking apartment, feel free to smoke outside in the outdoor space.
Lost "Key Fob" for the apartment is a $50 charge, so please do not lose it!
Otherwise, please make yourself at home, be respectful and clean (especially with pets) and have fun!! Thank you!
Lauren's responses were really prompt and it was easy to communicate with her and she is a great host! And her apartment is in the heart of Boston and we really enjoyed staying at Lauren's!
Lauren's apartment was wonderful. It is lovely, large and very well located in the South End/Back Bay area. (which made getting around very easy). Lauren was quick to respond to messages and was also very amenable with check-in and out times for our trip. Would 100% rent this apartment again.
Muy buena ubicación. Escasa limpieza del apartamento, no recomendada para alérgicos al pelo de los animales...
El lugar de Lauren era muy lindo, Lauren una persona muy amable y dedicada a sus huéspedes. Estuvo muy dispuesta a ayudarnos durante todo el tiempo. El barrio excelente, en el centro de Boston y bellísimo.
Lauren and Adam were great host, responded promptly to our questions even those unrelated to the apt. The apt is very close to Back Bay subway station and in a great neighbourhood, lined with beautiful houses, great bars and restaurants. Lauren and Adam prepared a lists of suggestions of places to go. The apt is in a great location and it was perfect for the four of us.
Super bien situé dans Boston, l'appartement est grand, et les 2x2 couchages confortables. Lauren nous a accueilli très gentiment malgré notre retard de 2h. On recommande !
Lauren and Adam accommodated us last minute and we couldn't be more grateful. Their awesome (And clean) apartment made our trip so much easier. Thanks again you two, and thanks for the pancakes!
