Very welcoming atmosphere. We appreciated the comprehensive instructions on where to go and how to get there. Very accessible to shops and also easy to get to Boston central. Great location. Comfortable house with considerate extras for the weary traveler.

Had a good stay, easy check-in with key code, neat clean flat, good connections to downtown with tube (~30 minutes including walk to station), supermarkets and some restaurants in walking distance, rather commercial area. WiFi speed was very low, obviously due to many users in other flats. Electric stove was not working properly (slowly heating, temperature too low). All in all, good value for money.

Marie is a professional and friendly host. We didn't get to meet her, but written communication was prompt and good. Check-in was a cinch. The place is very spacious, bright, private, and has all the amenities you would expect. Parking directly in front of the house was possible without having to search for a spot. The walk to the T was shorter than expected, and shorther than your GPS would suggest. You have to enter the station (Wellington) through a garage, which isn't quite intuitive, to use the "SkyWalk". There is a sign at the entrance, but no further clues which floor you have to get to (it's #3). Cross the garage and use the SkyWalk. Although we only stayed for two nights, I think the apartment would be good for a prolonged duration for up to four persons. I would stay here again. Recommended.

We enjoyed the quietness of the neighborhood while being fairly close to Cambridge and Boston. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of room for our group of 4

We came with 2 teenagers and the listing was great for our needs. We were a short walk to the Orange T line-closer than what may be perceived in other comments. It was clean and very simple. We did have to go out and buy more toilet paper which was mentioned in a prior comment. That is just a bit annoying considering there were 4 people and you left 2 rolls for a 4 night stay. There are neighbors that live above you ( or maybe they are guests as well. Very kind.

Response from Marie:
So sorry about the toilet paper. We now have moved the stored ones to a more obvious place. Marie

We loved staying here and it was a perfect location for us. Just enough outside of downtown, but still only 15-20 minutes from Boston Commons and the gardens. The house was clean, comfortable, beautifully furnished, and affordable. I will definitely return next time I'm in Boston. The only drawback for me was that the kitchen was a bit under stocked as far as kitchen tools. My family is on a restricted diet so having a kitchen was a must, but it was a bit difficult to cook with so little kitchen gadgets and equipment.
