Are you from out of town? Allston is West Boston, a part of the city of Boston. Allston is connected to Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods by Commonwealth Ave., Storrow Drive and the Mass. Pike [90]. As you move from Back Bay to North Allston, or Lower Allston as it is sometimes called, the houses change from traditional brownstone row houses to a mix of (phone number hidden) Victorian wood houses.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Richard was a great host. Everything was prepared perfectly. The studio is in a very good shape. Although it is small, you will find everything you need. If you want to visit Harvard Business School the location is great, in case you are coming to see Boston you might feel a bit peripheral (most taxi drivers did not even know the street ;-))

  • This Studio has to be in our top 5 vacation stays we have had. The neighborhood~comfortable to walk both day and night with many beautiful well kept yards, still within easy accessibility to all of Boston and its surrounds. The Studio~3rd floor walkup, even more comfortable than the neighborhood, everything someone would need for either a short or long term stay. Victoria and Richard are the epitome of hostess and host, like that perfect waiter who doesn't hover, yet is always there for the smallest of needs! We will definitely be repeat guests when back in Boston, if this little gem is not booked.

  • Richard and Victoria are very nice host. They were at the same time very helpful, kind and discrete. The studio was very clean and comfortable. It's 10 minuits walk to green line and 5 minuits walk to a big supermarket. The neighborhood was very quite and safe. We had great time there. Highly recommended.

  • Absolutely lovely home! Had the pleasure of staying here after a week-long conference in a sparse university-based dorm room. This was an amazing treat -- a wonderfully comfortable bed, a fully equipped kitchen, a tastefully decorated space: everything you could want to return to after exploring the city for the first time! Barely ran into the hosts but their communication was amazing. They were flexible with quirky arrival times, wonderfully open about their space, and super accommodating. Would definitely HIGHLY recommend!

  • Wonderful studio! Definitely a good choice for a couple seeking a relaxing vacation. Richard did a great job with getting the studio ready for us despite our last minute reservations- we were pleasantly surprised to find everything we could possibly need already waiting... including shampoo/soap, and even wine, bread, cereal, and coffee!!

    The neighborhood is quiet and residential, and though the house is a 10 minute walk to the Green line at Harvard Ave, we felt lucky to pass by so many great neighborhood restaurants on the way. There are also a few buses within a few blocks radius.

    The studio itself looks newly renovated, and comes well furnished with a fully supplied kitchen. Great for those who prefer a less touristy experience of Boston and don't want to stay at a hotel.

    Sad to say we never crossed paths with Richard during our Sat-Tues stay, but I suppose that just speaks to the privacy and freedom we were able to enjoy.
