Reviews for this vacation b&b rental in Boston, Massachusetts
Felt right at home
May 23, 2014
The rental was excellent. Everything on the website about the home were accurate. We enjoyed several day trips to Plymouth, Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod and Boston during our stay. The home had everything we needed. It was very neat, clean, nicely furnished and decorated and it was only a short walk to the water. The owner was also very accommodating for check in. We highly recommend this house to anyone considering staying in this area.
Construction in the Building
May 16, 2013
The owner had said the building would be under construction a few days before we were planned to leave. There was jackhammering and loud hammering at 730 am in the morning. The needed to get inside the house and left the door open the rest of the day with all of our stuff inside. Apartment smelled like smoke.
Unfortunately, we suffered some damage to our building during the blizzard in February and were not able to have the repairs done until May. I asked contractors to wait until after nine am to perform any noisy work. Evidently, this was not the case during one of the days for which I am so sorry. I regret that I did not learn about this issue when it was happening so I could do something at that time. Fortunately, all the work has been completed so this will not be an issue in the future.
second floor suite
August 30, 2012
We loved the pretty and interesting building where we stayed. The location is great for exploring the Freedom Trail and Little Italy. The city water taxi stop #18 is very close and the North Subway stop is not too far to walk. This info I found after much research on my own. The second floor suite was lovely for a couple---a little bit tight for more than that. We were told to supply our own breakfast items as the breakfast is not included, so we were fine with that. The suite contains a fridge, microwave and coffee/tea fixings. There were 3 bowls, 2 coffee mugs and spoons. When I asked for an extra bowl because we had 4 people and we had purchased breakfast cereal, our request was not well received. No food allowed on 2nd floor suite. I think this info should be clarified for future guests-perhaps remove the microwave and bowls as this is confusing. However, the suite was very clean, comfortable bed and quiet location. The price is good and we had no problems with using the key codes-even though I was a bit nervous about arriving at an un-manned location. The staff/inn keeper was easily available by phone when needed and all of our requests were quickly granted.
Errin Shoop Volitis

We had an amazing time in Boston over St. Patty's. My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary with friends and family and it was great to all be in the same place. We couldn't have asked for a better location and view! I do have 2 complaints though...not huge issues but enough to mention. The refrigerator/freezer needs repair or update, it didn't keep our food cold or freeze ice cubes. Secondly, when we check in on Friday, there was floor finishing going on the floor below us. The fumes were so strong we had to leave the apartment until the smell was gone. It was so potent that a few of us were light headed. Luckily it cleared out by the time we returned a few hours later. Thanks for listening and thanks for a great stay. We will absolutely look to stay again!
"Thanks so much for the hospitality over the last few days. We so enjoyed the room, the kitchen facility and mostly the neighborhood. My husband commented several times that he wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else and that made us both enjoy the trip even more."
