One thing to be aware of with this property is that there are street noises (traffic); it's worth it to bring earplugs!

Well decorated clean and tidy. however the bathroom ceiling has peeling paint on it. There is not enough stools in the kitchen for all of us to eat at the kitchen table. The traffic noise at night can be disturbing if you are not used to living in the city. Safe neighbourhood with a lovely Bistro next door. Great company to deal with, quick to respond to e-mails and enquiries, highly recommended.

The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Boston is a very nice place to visit. Our stay was ok. It could of been better with a cleaner bath tub and hot water. The beds are old and squeaky when you roll over. The bathroom door gets stuck. Also, when I made reservations I put 5 people staying and we only had 3 wash clothes. Plus no cleaning products to clean shower in between uses and two holes on the ceiling in the shower area at each end and the vent outside the shower had no vent grate on it. The manager could of communicated better about the shower. I put in a request to get it fixed, he did check it out but, didn't tell me until I emailed him again about it. We only had 4 coffee mugs and we had 5 coffee drinkers. Also would help if you had more hangers in the closets. I would recommend only if they fix the issues of the shower, door, ceiling and the beds.

The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The location we choose, so its hard to rate this, but the location was not to bad. The walk to the next subway was okay and the area where the appartment was, was clean, not to loud and totally good. The inside was clean and for us big enough. Great beds. What we wish for the next time is, to have more towels maybe and more dishes in the kitchen. But for the three nights it was okay too. The online check in and check out is a interesting idea and it was easy to use. We had no problems but I hope to get free support with a free telephone number when someone need assistance. In all I can say that we will stay with Swank Properties again. Great company! Big thanks to you!

The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My travel mates and I did not know what to expect when we booked this apartment a few months ago. Our flight arrived very early (around 1030am) and we were not able to check in until 4, initially. After a prompt response from Lance, we were able to discuss a possible early check in. The only downside was that I had no confirmation until the day before my trip that we were all set for an early check in and that my card had been charged the extra amount. This response came after we had made plans to make up for the large amount of time between landing and being able to check in. Needless to say, the early check in didnt really happen. Overall the location was good. The neighborhood was quiet (with the exception of the VERY LOUD construction at 6am every morning) and never once did I question my safety. My travel mates and I enjoyed the furnishings and the space that renting the apartment gave us. We used the kitchen quite often for meals and I enjoyed that it had all the right utensils for me! The largest complaint for me was the water pressure in the unit. The sink in the kitchen barely gave any water as well as the shower. This piece is only minor and did not really effect the overall stay. I would recommend that the check in process be a bit more streamlined. It was very hard for me to find a contact number to text and let know that we had arrived and when I found one, I received no confirmation of receiving said text message. This left me feeling like I had missed a step in the process. Overall, great first experience in Boston! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for similar accommodations in the area! Thanks!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The appartement was quite nice and completly equipped. Unfortunately we had a road construction directly in front of the house, making us wake up at 7am.
      Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The apartment was very clean and well appointed, however, for six people, the living room area could have been a little bigger. There was not enough space for all six of us to sit in there, which we would've liked to in the evenings. Additionally, we had wished the kitchen table were a little bigger for our group. A couple of room fans would have been a wonderful amenity also. All in all, a good stay.

The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Spent a long weekend during the peak of the heat wave. Thank you for having air conditioning that works! The apartment covered everything we needed -- clean sheets, clean towels, and a full kitchen -- and had plenty of space to let our family spread out. It's an older building, but everything inside that wasn't hidden by a wall had been updated. The location was in a working class neighborhood in the middle of the city within walking distance (we didn't have to carry the 6 yr old) of 2 different subway stops. We ran into one panhandler during our stay, but it otherwise looked as if the residents really cared about their houses. People accustomed to a quiet suburban atmosphere may be put off by the urban noise that surrounds the place. Our only issue is that we had difficulty finding parking on weekdays because of road construction. It wasn't clear if it was legal to leave our car in RESIDENT parking during the day so we had to search a bit to find general free parking.

The apartment was very large and comfortable with room for plenty of people. And the price was unbeatable.
      Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very unhappy with the location. The vacation rental was clean. The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We were very surprised with the neighborhood. We did not stay there even though we had paid the entire fee. The neighborhood felt unsafe. We are used to an urban environment and would not stay there.
      Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The property was mostly as stated. The bedrooms and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The living room and kitchen should have more seating. The living room did not accomodate the 5 adults in our party. 2 chairs and a corner piece of a sectional sofa did not suffice. The 2 stools in the kitchen was also a diassapointment. The property description included "laundry detergent" as part of the amenities giving the impression there was laundry facilities. To our dismay, there was neither a washing machine, nor a dryer. Other reviews noted the location as being in a bad neighborhood...we did not encounter any difficulties, even using public transportation later in the night. Overall, a pleasant experience (with the few noted disapointments).

      Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was somewhat unhelpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Beautiful building, nice location/neighborhood. 1st floor did not have couch as advertised, and limited seating was available. Heat wasn't on the first night, but management came and turned it on the second night. Satellite TV went down and requests for service went unanswered by management (no response whatsoever to calls and email). Wasn't too big of a deal until until two days later me and my friends finished the marathon and returned to apartment while suddenly fielding phone calls concerning our safety. Would have been nice to have a working TV in order to track what was going on in the city the days that followed.

The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Apartment clean, Street noisy but ok with us.Liked walking to the tube. Our biggest problem was coping with an apartment set at 64 degrees. We froze. Should have been able to control it ourselves. Owner not helpful.

Although there was an annoying internal vacuum which would go on in the morning which was very noisy.
      Rating Details: I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I felt that the property was located in a convenient spot to public transportation, but it might be helpful to explain that you can take the #17 bus right in front of the building to the Andrew station on the Red Line. We figured that out ourself. Also, the availability of street parking was very good. On the negative side, several of the pull-up blinds were damaged and the absence of one in the bathroom was not good at all. In hindsight, we never called about it, so that's on us, but I suspect that the cleaning crew should have checked that out when they came in prior to our coming in. Also, it would be helpful if you provided a few of the necessities--toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags. I would enthusiastically recommend it but would advise a potential renter to make sure they call if there are any issues like we had. Also, the amount of hot water was good, but if there's anything that can be done about the water pressure in the shower and kitchen, you should do it. Shower drain needs Drano'd.

Will stay again!
