Our group of 5 had a great stay at Omar's apartment. The place was spacious and we enjoyed everything from the large dining room table to the tv for entertainment; the extra bathroom was a plus while we were getting ready in the morning.
Upon figuring out arrival plans, Omar made us a priority, being flexible about weather and going above and beyond in communicating to ensure we had everything we needed.
For the value and impeccable host, I would absolutely consider staying here again.
During the recent snow storm, Omar was able to accomodate me at the last minute. He explained that I'd have to wash the sheets myself as he was away, and I was so happy to have a place it was an easy compensation for the peace of mind!
The fireplace in the snow was the big selling point and it didn't disappoint! The entire apt. was cozy and warm, and everything worked well. The bed was especially comfortable and the location was very very quiet.
I would recommend this wonderful South End Apt. to a friend, and I hope I have the chance to stay there again - except without 71" of snow!
My friends and I had a nice stay at Omar's. The neighborhood seemed great. It was unfortunately buried in snow, which is why we also had to park at a nearby garage, but the neighborhood had a good vibe to it. We were close to all the places we needed to be. There were four of us and we had more than enough space and slept comfortably. Communication was great, quick and smooth, and getting in the place was easy. We only stayed for one night and didn't make use of everything in the place (such as cooking, etc.), but it seems like it has everything you need. I recommend this listing.
Omar was really flexible - especially when our bus to Boston was delayed. He also provided us with maps and books about the area.
The two-bedroom flat is great. There's a fireplace and a great view from the balcony. I highly recommend.
Omar was incredibly helpful and excellent with communicating the expectations and necessary details for our stay. He was very accommodating and flexible with anything we needed. The apartment was in pristine condition and arranged very guest-conscious. There wasn't a single aspect of the venue that fell short of it's description. I would highly recommend this space/host for any overnight/vacation stay. My absolute favorite thing about the stay was the bachelor pad-esque vibe of the place with also a very homely ambiance able to suit a variety of guests' interest.
Beautiful neighborhood in the heart of Boston, and a gracious, accommodating host.
I run a small corporate travel agency and love travel myself. I have been to over 60 countries and can advise you on all sorts of travel related things. I've also lived in the Boston area for 8 years so I am also a good guide for this area as well.
