“Great Thanksgiving!”

Reviewed 14 Dec 2013

Our children could not come home so we decided to gather for Thanksgiving in Boston. This condo is beautiful and very comfortable for six people. The condo is centrally located with many restaurants, shops, a theater, and fancy bowling which we had never experienced, all within walking distance. The kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed a wonderful turkey meal with ten guests. The condo is beautifully decorated and very homey so we did not feel the need to be out and about every day. The beds are extremely confortable. Thank you Karen for being such a wonderful host. We made some new holiday memories there in your beautiful home!

“Fantastic Experience”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2013

A wonderful home away from home for our son's wedding. This is truly a Boston gem. The condo comfortably accommodated our family of 8, while providing plenty of entertaining space for visiting family and friends. The kitchen met all our needs and Karen even purchased a muffin tin, when I asked in advance if one would be available. Karen made sure all our questions were answered before leaving and even checked in by phone the next day. She could not have been more accommodating. Everything is within walking distance and having a grocery cart available for larger purchases was so convenient. Comfortable, relaxing, and beautiful! This rental is worth every penny and you will not be disappointed.

“Outstanding Location, Phenomenal apartment . . . .”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

We just returned from our 1 week stay. It was amazing! The unit was spacious, well appointed, and well situated (two blocks from the subway and one block from Newbury St. restaurants and shops). This was the perfect place to stay and Karen (owner) was wonderful!

“The perfect home in the perfect location”

Reviewed 15 May 2013

This historic home has gorgeous 18ft ceilings, large comfortable gathering rooms to relax in, great kitchen, roomy bedrooms and bathrooms. Decorated with eclectic objects from world travels makes your stay even more interesting. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, Boston Garden and Commons and easily accessible to everywhere by T. We had a terrific visit to Boston and this home played a big part in our memorable trip.

Response from the owner You are too kind. Thanks for your comments Rita!

“Amazing experience”

Reviewed 14 May 2013

I was very skeptacle of staying in a place sight unseen. We generally stay in nice hotels so we know what to expect. This time however, we would have needed 2-3 hotel rooms. Even though the price of $900 was steep and more than 2 hotels rooms maybe, we could not have had a place where we could all gather (and cook!). In fact, we would have had 3 kids and 4 adults all crowded into one 350 sq foot hotel room if we wanted to be together. Impossible. At this condo, we had the kids on a separate floor in a "kids" room with game boxes, a flatscreen with all channels possible and a large computer. That way, us adults sipped wine by the fire in a large room with the kitchen close by upstairs of this duplex. The location was the best ever! And the host, Karen, was out of this world. We had so many questions and she got back to us within seconds - everything from restaurant suggestions to day trip options. She is tireless. We texted her about a tablecloth and one was dropped off within a half hour, brand new. We figured it was a huge savings from a hotel because we bought snacks at the local market (instead of room service, mini bars and restaurants!) The best part was the actual condo space we had. If I ever come to Boston again, I would never stay in a hotel again!!

“Superb Location for Large Group Near Newbury/Boylston/Marathon F”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2013

On would be hard-pressed to find a better, quiet location for this marathon. The 5K runs right by the door (Sunday race) and the marathon turns off of Commonwealth at about where the apartment is located, with the finish 1/2 mi at most away. Its location is superb in that it is a 5 min walk from the subway, has a convenience store around the corner with a good selection of beers and a Trader Joe 3/4 blocks away, not to mention every type of restaurant you'd want. The property itself is cavernous and unusual in the bedrooms are in the basement of this 2 story condo (with a convenient back door). The kitchen is nicely appointed and the showers are solid. But best of all, Karen takes care of everything from coffee, soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and even an apple laptop; and when your stay is done, you just leave without having to mess with any silly cleanup rules. And if you need something, she seems more than happy to cater to your needs - like turning on the TV with that overly complicated remote control :).

Primo. Outstanding. See to believe! The condo owner was the nicest, most generous person ever.

“My family and I had a truly wonderful stay at this lovely apartm”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2012

If I lived in Boston, it would be right here. The apartment was stylish, welcoming and spacious. It was spotlessly clean; had comfortable beds, a huge washing machine and a dryer; and had a brilliant kitchen, with every electrical appliance and gadget one would ever need. Karen was ever so helpful and approachable during our time in Boston - I can't believe we were so fortunate to meet her and stay at her lovely apartment. The apartment was situated in a safe and quiet locale, yet was extremely close to restaurants, grocery shops, department stores, and transportation. My son was attending summer school at Berklee, and the school building was barely a five-minute walk away. My parents (in their late 70s) found it very convenient to walk to the T (the subway) which was only two streets away. Fenway Park (the baseball stadium) was not too far to walk to either. A stroll over the Massachusetts ave bridge to MIT took about 20 minutes (1.5km). If not in the mood for walking, we could easily phone for a taxicab to arrive at the apartment's front door. We stayed a fortnight and this was more a home than just an apartment. The street level rooms were right out of an interior design magazine, and the sleeping areas downstairs were cool and comfortable. Everyone felt at ease and had their own space (and telly!). When we were home, my dad sat in the living room, by the bay windows, reading the newspaper and watching joggers go by; my son was in his room downstairs listening to music; my mum was happy watching television or reading in the family room; and I was preparing home-cooked meals in a beautiful, fully-stocked kitchen. On arriving into Boston, we stayed for one night at a reputable hotel (I had confused my dates and did not want to be a bother to Karen). Hands down, Karen's apartment definitely topped the said hotel, with its amazing location, elegant appearance, and practicality. I would definitely recommend this fantastic residence to anyone visiting Boston.

“Really Lovely Stay!”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2012

We would wholeheartedly recommend Karen's fantastic condo!! It was truly a home away from home and made what could have been a really exhausting trip a super easy and relaxing stay for all of us, including our 2 year old and our elderly parents. Karen was very responsive and helpful and we couldn't have asked for a better hostess. The condo was clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable and was in a great location for us as the bus to Cambridge was just around the corner, not to mention the restaurants, shops and supermarkets nearby. I don't remember enjoying Boston this much in the past but by the end of our trip I wanted to stay a few more days. Thanks Karen!!

“Best of all worlds!”

Reviewed 15 May 2012

There is absolutely not one thing I would change about our family's visit to Boston to celebrate one graduation and two engagements. Especially -- especially -- our accommodations. The owner of this hip yet comfortable townhouse was more helpful than any hotel concierge ever could be. The decor, artwork and furnishings were sophisticated but not "off-limits". All amenities were top shelf. Towels tremendous! Everything spotless. Sound system, TV, all you could ever need or want. And on top of all that, it was extremely quiet. We will all never forget the amazing visit we had, thanks to this extraordinary accommodation. I just feel bad about not replacing those two beautiful candles we burned.

Response from the owner Jill, Thanks so much for the great review! I really appreciate you taking the time to write it. I'm sooooo glad you had a good experience! Best, Karen
