The loft was in pristine condition, all furniture well-cared for, immaculately clean. The accommodations were outstanding with newly remodeled kitchen and full-inclusion of necessary linens and towels. I was impressed by all the attention to detail the owner must put into this space as a rental.
The location of the building is prime, right in the middle of the quaint Newbury bustle. Easy access to the subway system, less than a quarter mile walk.
I highly recommend this rental to anybody looking to enjoy Boston and all of the amazing things the city has to offer!

My husband and I enjoyed staying here for a long weekend. Comfortable space for 2 people. Location is wonderful as you are near transit and within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and bars. Safe area.
Rental agents were easy to work with and answered any questions in a timely manner.
An upgrade of linens would make this a 5 star rental.

We rented the apartment only shortly before going to Boston and were very pleased with the quality and appointments. The location is brilliant for Newbury street shopping and eatery's. The communication with Bryan was absolute first rate which we very much appreciated. The apartment was so spacious compared to staying in a hotel room, we would happily stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone.

The apartment was spacious & high spec. It had everything you'd need for a stay in the city. The location couldn't have been more perfect, right in the heart of everything. The only down side was that the bedroom itself had no air conditioning. The ceiling fan just circulated hot air & it was very uncomfortable to sleep in the heat. I stayed for 10 days at the end of august with my 2 sons & they had to sleep on the sofa bed in the lounge which did have air-conditioning.
I booked the location for my conference at the Hynes Center, but it was unavailable on the last day, so I switched to the Sheraton. The location was really incredible, it was just a few steps to make it back to my room/apartment on a break. Being on Newbury Street is really nice too, just down the street from Johny Cupcakes, and kewl shops.
The floors and ceilings were pretty thin, though. The kitchen was kinda undersupplied, though. They should include a basic amenity package with salt, sugar, butter, and other condiments. For a three-day stay, it kind of defeats the purpose to save money, if I have to equip the kitchen with the basics.
The furniture was mostly awesome, cookware was good, although heavy teflon (stainless steel is healthier). The dishwasher was really loud, and the a/C barely kept the place cool. One would think when a guest is expected, the hosts would turn the a/C (or heat in winter) on to a reasonable level, to greet the guests.

We had a great time during our stay in Boston in Newbury #4. The location is very convenient, a short 1 mile walk to Fenway, and short walk to the start of the Freedom Trail and the Boston Gardens. Cute shops and restaurants along the street and the subway is nearby too. This unit is on the top floor, up 2 narrow flights of stairs so if you have difficulty walking this unit may be hard to manage getting up and down the stairs. Very clean unit that is a little small,I would recommend for couples or family of 4 with children that can sleep on pullout couch together.

This unit is just as the pictures show. We have a family of 3 and it worked perfect for us. Everything was clean and in working order. The location in Back Bay is fantastic. Newbury street is awesome, restaurants, shopping, close to subway. It made our vacation week in Boston all the better. We really enjoyed staying here. Thanks.
Things for you to consider as improvements:
- supply bath towels for 4 people, we only had towels for 2, my son used the hand towel.
- provide more then one kitchen towel, we bought a couple and left them in the unit for next guest.
- provide a few baking dishes in the kitchen.
- provide dishwasher detergent, we didn't have any, wash by hand.

I thought the location was absolutely perfect! The neighborhood was amazing! The unit itself was exactly what we needed! I have many food allergies so I really enjoyed having the kitchenette to make my own meals part of the time.
The only things I can nitpick about would be the limited TV channels and the minimal window coverings (the lights outside showed through at night), and that's if I really look for something to improve on.
The management company is easy to work with and very efficient. I look forward to booking this location in the future :-)

My Wife and I stayed at Newbury #4 in early June when we visited our Daughter. The apartment is attractive with tall ceilings and complimentary furniture.
On the plus side, the central location is excellent for visiting Boston. If you love the hustle and bustle of city-life, you will enjoy this apartment.
On the minus side, the apartment is hot...under air conditioned. It is also noisy, with a loud garbage truck pick-up next door each morning about 3am. Some furniture, like the end table in the bedroom is poorly positioned (no outlet), and the bedroom ceiling light was out during our stay.
We also suffered through power outages 2 of 4 nights we were there--this is no one's fault at Back Bay management.

The home is Confortable. It's right for a couple but is not bad for 3/4 people ( in this case you lost in privacy )
the location is great. Perfect!!!
check in is simple ( you receive password key for the front door and apt )
