Downtown Views & Parking. Quiet, yet close to the Subway and park
Wonderful Boston location right on the harbor you can easily walk to everything including public transportation, water taxi's beautiful Piers Park and the Airport.
Separate Apartment that is fully equipped from shampoo to sheets just unpack and y …
Everything about this place was exactly as described. The unit is a 5 minute walk from the Maverick T station. It is also a 15-20 minute walk from the airport. Had I known that, I would have walked there when I stepped off the plane! I was able to walk to the airport on my way home. Although the place is so close to the airport, you won't hear any plane noise.
The owner met me when I arrived and gave me a quick orientation along with the key.
The photos of the interior are spot on. Everything was clean (and even smelled great) when I arrived. The bed was extremely warm and comfortable - I slept as well as I do at home. The bedroom had an LCD HDTV with premium cable channels. Wifi was easy to use and fast. The bathroom was stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and soap. The place has a fully furnished kitchen so you can prepare your own meals and save the expense of eating out all the time. There are a few convenience stores within a 5 minute walk, and a supermarket that is a 15-20 minute walk. There are also many restaurants within a short walk, and of course with access to the T you can get anywhere in Boston quickly.
Some considerations: For those who are used to living / staying in new construction, this is an older house. With that comes things typical of older houses. The floors aren't quite level and the temperature will vary throughout the unit (thermostat is in the bedroom). There are 3 steps to get to the front door that will be a bit steeper than today's building code.
My husband and I stayed here for the month of November while waiting for our house to close and our stay was fantastic! Location was amazing and the apartment was perfect for the two of us! Thanks so much to John for a great stay!
We enjoyed our visit to Boston and had a pleasant stay at "the blue house" (as we always call it!). We were gone most days sightseeing but it was always nice to come back to our apartment at the end of a busy day and be able to feel at home. The rooms were clean and stocked nicely. Only a short walk to Maverick Station and we greatly enjoyed the view of downtown Boston across the bay!
What a treat! Had no idea how beautiful the Boston view was until I went to the park across the street from this place. The East Boston Piers Park is absolutely gorgeous and a 2 min walk...gorgeous! This place was clean, reasonable, and a quiet neighborhood. The t was not far and so close to downtown. Thanks Melissa and John for sharing!
We were a group of 3 adults looking for an affordable place to stay near downtown, and enjoyed our 6 days here. The subway was 5 minutes away and we especially enjoyed the local East Boston restaurants (Santarpios and KO Pies). Having a kitchen with a fridge and washer/dryer was really handy and the neighborhood was quiet with great views of downtown. It was also easy to get to the airport when we cheked out. We had a chance to meet Melissa briefly, and although the payment process was more informal than we were used to, everything turned out great and our deposit was refunded 4 weeks after check-out. Communication prior to securing the rental was quick and helpful.
Note that the additional room available for rent does not have a/c which was a bit disappointing since it was very hot, and the main window to get some airflow is right on the street. This room also did not lock from the outside but we were able to move our belongings into the main area when we were out for the day. Otherwise the main one bedroom area was great and we would definitely recommend it and stay here again!
The place was clean, comfortable, and exactly as described. The landlord was very informative and helpful. The property was clean and, the location was a great place to go back to after a long day of sight-seeing. Getting around was easy and the landlord was very thorough with details to help us enjoy our stay. We would recommend this place to friends and family anytime!
A great place to stay. Would stay again and plan to sometime.
Very comfortable with easy access to the T, airport, everywhere.
The apartment is a great 'home away from home' and I'd stay here again. It's as pictured, has everything needed for a comfortable stay and the location is great - a short walk to the Maverick T station which gets you in to downtown Boston quickly. There is a nice park across the street with great views of the Boston skyline. The Tyler's greeted us with a warm welcome and made us feel at home immediately. They were helpful and recommended nearby stores and restaurants - we liked all of them so be sure to get their recommendations. Don't hesitate to stay here!
This was a fantastic location which was perfect for kids because there is a playground literally across the street. There is also a huge flat screen TV with plenty of channels and the air conditioner kept us nice and cool even though we were in town during a heat wave. It is also only a few hundred yards from a T stop so it made getting around without a car no problem. John was an attentive and helpful host and had plenty of recommendations to help us with places to eat and visit.
We had a very comfortable stay at the apartment and additional first floor room. It was just as advertised; no surprises. Very clean, great TV and free wi-fi! The apartment has a great location -- near a subway stop and right across the street from a beautiful waterside park with very nice playgrounds (one for little kids and one for big kids). The owner was very helpful, as well. We would stay here again and would recommend it to our friends and relatives.
Myself and three fellow nurse practitioner colleagues stayed here while we attended a conference in Boston. The Tyler's were very welcoming and the apartment was nice and clean with comfortable beds. It was a nice quiet neighborhood and had a great view of the Harbor!! The apartment had everything we needed and it was nice to have a larger space than a hotel room as well as "at home amenities". It was short walk to the T which gave us quick access to Boston. The only annoying thing about this location was....it was not easy to QUICKLY get to the Boston convention center. So....If you are staying in Boston for anything other than a conference at the convention center, then this is an excellent place. I will definitely remember the Tyler's and their hospitality when I visit Boston again. Thank you!!!!
We enjoyed our stay in this apartment. John and Melissa were extremely helpful in giving directions to get around and finding yummy local restaurants. It is very close to the T and there is a beautiful park right across the street with amazing views of the harbor and skyline. We appreciated having 2 bedrooms with very comfortable beds, however the 2nd bedroom is down the hall and not part of the main apartment. Everything was wonderful and we would stay here again! Thanks so much!
Good eating out options nearby
Everything you need for a short stay location and more.
Will use this location again on my next trip.
We stayed here for two nights in early June. The owners were very helpful and responded to all emails very quickly before getting there. They were very friendly and helpful once we got there as well. The property was perfect for what we needed for a two night stay. It was very clean and well maintained and stocked with everything we needed. As stated by a previous reviewer the floors were not level but that was not a big deal. The parking space was great. It was not a bad walk to the subway even in the rain!! We found a couple places to eat within walking distance as well. There may have been more. We just weren't there long enough to find or need them. The only thing I would want if staying longer would be a separate "living area" from the bedroom area but for our stay everything was perfect. Thanks John and Melissa. Would definately stay there again if in the area.
we arrived and were met with open arms. These folks are great and very accommodating. Near the maverick T and small shops that have almost everything you need. Would have liked to have stayed longer. When in Boston this is a great place to stay with everything you need. I highly recommend. Enjoy
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment. I originally thought it might be too far out of the city, but the subway is only five minutes away and it is quick and easy to get into town. It was very comfortable, clean, quiet and had everything we needed. It was great to get to know John and Melissa who couldn't have been more helpful. Excellent value for money compared to a hotel. We would love to go back and found Boston very friendly. Thanks for a great stay.
This place was perfect for us. My husband and I had to travel all around Mass and we were able to get around town great from this location. It is also very close to the subway so going into the city was a breeze. John and Melissa were great to rent from. The apartment as everything you would need including laundry, a full kitchen, and off street parking. We loved it and highly recommend this rental to anyone wanting to avoid overpaying for a hotel room!
