  • We had a wonderful stay at Swamy's apt in Charleston, MA, just outside of Boston proper. Swamy allowed us a very last minute reservation and responded immediately to every question as we were arriving from out of state for a show. He was a very friendly host.

    His downstairs felt private and was extremely clean and easily accessible. Parking on the street is free on weekends and the area lovely. Swamy had nice touches, such as drinks int he little fridge downstairs and access to his immaculate kitchen upstairs. The bed and couch are very comfortable.

    We highly recommend staying at Swamy's apt if you are wanting to go to Boston or anywhere in the area. Boston is a very quick car ride, yet you are staying in a quiet suburb.

    We would definitely stay there again when we come down.

  • Swamy was the perfect host. He was there to meet us when we arrived, and left us to get on with having a fabulous time in Boston, answering our questions very promptly. His apartment is in a perfect location, right on the 92 bus route and within a short walk of the orange line T. The apartment was well-equipped and tastefully furnished. We would definitely recommend Swamy's place.

  • Swamy was not at his place when we arrived. But, and that was great, he got us the keys in his way! Everything was perfectly prepared and easy to find for us. It was clean, spacey and perfect to us for some nights in Boston.

  • My husband and I would not recomend Swamy's place in Bosotn Ma.
    Swamy is not a good host for the fallowing reasons:
    Prior, or on the day of our arrival ( May 19 2014) Swamy did not provide with arrival information as where to find the key to enter his apt, we had to look and look around.
    I went to the bedroom to be sure everithing was in order. I found the toilet and toilet seat not been clean, with noticeable spilled body fluid, shower and shower door not clean , very noticeable , no towles on the racks; I did call Swamy and he said to look for it in the dresser, there was only 1 bath towel and a couple of hand towels ( we are 2 people)
    At this point , we were very upset, I called Sawmy and told him, that we could not staying there, the place was not in acceptable conditions ,not to standards of cleanness expected from vacation rental. He offer to sent the cleaning people, but for us was " a little to late",we just waned to run out of there !!! . I did not want to see or touch anything else.
    Swamy did not take his time to ensure his rental place was clean and in condition to received the next guest ,he lives on the the first floor, so there is not excuse or apology enough for this conduct. I did choose his place do to good reviews, but what a disappointment!! We did booked his place on Feb 19/2014; 3 months in advance.
    We did not have a place to go, it was very stressful to located accomodations at the last minute;we ended up spending a lot of mone on a hotel and transportation.
    Thanks Sawmy !!!

  • My boyfriend and I were easing back from Vermont and didn't have a place to stay in Boston. We got a hold of Swamy, because he responded very quickly!

    His place is lovely, the type
    Of pad I would want to buy! And although we were only there for a night and left early the next day he provided up with heaps of info about transport, pubs, sights etc!

    Thank you Swamy! I hope to come back and a stay again!

  • quel plaisir de découvrir un si bel endroit ! superbement situé, facile d'accès
    et correspondant parfaitement à la description de l'annonce.
    Un bus (3 min à pieds) vous emmène au Centre de Boston et l'aéroport est joignable très facilement par taxi.
    Nous avons apprécié le confort du lit, la décoration et le calme de l'endroit.
    Notre hôte était si discret que nous ne savions même pas qu'il logeait là ;-)
    Nous avons quand même eu la chance de le croiser 5 min la veille du départ.
    Vous pouvez choisir cet endroit les yeux fermés ! ;-)
    Merci Swamy d'avoir permis d'y loger :-) et bonne continuation

  • My husband and I stayed with Swamy for four nights and had a wonderful time exploring Boston. We found the Charlestown location to be very good. There is a bus stop just across the street from Swamy's home and a metro stop within easy walking distance (5-10 minutes). Swamy's apartment was very comfortable and clean, and it was nice to have the entire lower level to ourselves. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Swamy's Place was well presented and in a nice location convenient to the train station. The accommodations were pleasant and he was a thoughtful host. We would definitely consider staying in his lovely home again. Thank you Swamy for being a thoughtful host.
