“Kids, Parents, Grandparents All Loved It!”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My family joined me on this Boston trip for my graduation in May. We stayed there for almost a week. There were 7 of us and we were all very impressed by this vacation rental and the owner, Karen.

The apartment itself has two levels and is incredibly spacious. It is very conveniently situated in the Newbury shopping area. Because it was only 3 short walking blocks away from the Green Line station, we were able to get anywhere in Boston with ease. Because of this, even as a family with two young kids, 5 and 7, we were able to get from the airport (via the free Silver Line shuttle and free transfer to the Tube) to the Tube station with no problem.

The apartment is clean and is eclectically decorated. Everything we needed as a family was there...and more. It was well furnished and very comfortable to stay in.

Karen was very responsive both via email and over the text and phone. She was a wealth of information, too! She was available if we ever had a question.

I would take my family back again if we ever go back to Boston.

“Better than the pictures”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We rented this for a conference which was held at MIT. Instead of staying in hotel rooms, our group decided to sacrifice a bit of our individual comforts for the sake of large living areas. We opted to rent this duplex for 7 people. The living areas of this duplex were very beautiful and spacious, and conducive to having group conversations, which was the point.

We found everything that we needed in the kitchen to cook and host simple dinners for up to 9 people. Grocery stores are located a short walk away and the kitchen is fully stocked. Parking was available, which was great. We walked to MIT every morning and went for jogs in the neighborhood.

“A great property in a fantastic location”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We couldn't have hoped for anything better, the house is 5*, very spacious and extremely comfortable. Great location being just a block away from the wonderful Newbury street with all the great shops and restaurants. Thanks to Karen for her wonderful hospitality, nothing was to much trouble.

“Perfect location for a group travelling to Boston”

We recently stayed at this wonderful condo for my mothers 60th birthday. My family wanted to stay together rather than several different rooms at a local hotel. The price is very reasonable for what you get, which is a beautiful 2 story condo in the heart of back bay. If you are not familiar with Boston, this is exactly where you want to stay. One block from newberry st, tons of shops, restaurants, and sights. Karen, the property owner, was a pleasure to deal with every step of the way.

We would all definitely stay here again.
