- The condo is located on the Ground and First floor of a historic walk-up brownstone.

- Our very comfortable, well-appointed 4 bedroom condo features a brand new kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, gorgeous custom tiled bathrooms, 10'+ high ceilings, and hardwood floors throughout spread across 2,000 Sqft.

Parking is available directly behind the building for a fee (please see further down the page for details).

- This condo comfortably accommodates 5 adults requiring separate sleeping spaces and families of up to 8 are permitted with children (6 adults in the three bedrooms, and 2 on the twin beds or pack-and-play).


- The condo is on the ground and first floor of a traditional Back Bay brownstone and is located mid-block on Marlborough Street, with the closest cross streets being Charlesgate East and Mass Ave.

- The condo is centrally located 2 blocks to Newbury St., the Hynes Convention Center MBTA stop (subway), the Charles River Esplanade, and the Mass Ave Bridge to Cambridge and MIT; 3 blocks to Boylston St.; 5 blocks to the Hynes Convention Center and Prudential Center, and everything else that Back Bay Boston has to offer. The apartment is also only a 10 minute walk to Fenway Park.

Guest access

- I have set-up a lock-box for key access directly outside of the building.

- Guests will also have direct access to the coin-operated laundry machines in the basement.

- The closest MBTA subway stops are Hynes Convention Center Station (300 yards away) and Kenmore Station (0.3 miles away), both on the Green Line. The closet Bus Stop is 75 feet away at the corner of Mass Ave and Marlborough St.

- Private parking maybe available directly behind the building at an additional cost of $35 per day. We own one spot behind the building and I will park my car on the street or in a nearby garage if you’re interested in renting our spot. The cost is marginally cheaper than nearby garages and allows you to come and go as you please without paying the garage fees each time you exit. This parking spot is not always available and in such cases, there are several garages nearby.

- Taxis, Uber, Hubway Bikes, and the MBTA are the easiest forms of transportation.

Interaction with guests

- My wife, infant son, and I live in Back Bay, and I am always available if you have any questions about Boston or the apartment. I’m also available if you have any issues or require any kind of assistance. Guests will have as much or as little interaction with me as they wish – with key access set-up through lock boxes, you do not need to coordinate meeting me to get access to the condo.

It was such a pleasure to stay at Jason's apartment. Everything was so easy and smooth. Spend a week in Boston to take my sister to BU and this apartment's location is unbeatable! Walkable to everywhere and also very accessible with a car too. The apartment is very clean and spacious and very well equipped. The beds are very comfortable and the showers are amazing!! Communication with Jason was so easy and he responded very quickly! Seamless check in and check out. The apartment looks exactly if not better than the photos. Would definitely come back to stay in the future or to check out other Jason's properties. Thanks for the great hospitality!

We absolutely LOVED staying at 428 Marlborough. The place is beautiful, the location was perfect and Jason was totally professional and helpful during our stay. We would recommend this location to anyone who wants to have a great time in a terrific spot. The only downside was we had to leave! We could have stayed forever. Thanks.

Jason User ProfileJason is a superhost.

I live in the Back Bay and I'm happy to accommodate any unique requests.

Additionally, my mother's residential real estate office, Meridian Realty Group, is located on the ground floor of our Gloucester Street brownstone / townhouse, facilitating easy communication and immediate assistance with any issues.

Prior to my current job at an investment consulting and advisory firm, where I focus on identifying top-tier real estate managers for our clients to invest in, I worked for a small firm managing a Saudi Prince's hotel investments across North America and Europe. We managed his interests in the Four Seasons and Fairmont management/operating companies, as well as oversaw his investments in several trophy properties, most notably, NYC's The Plaza, A Fairmont Managed Hotel; The Fairmont San Francisco; Paris' Four Seasons Hotel George V; and London's The Savoy, A Fairmont Managed Hotel. I have taken the same approach we took at my previous firm to managing our personal real estate investments, by providing exceptional service combined with fantastic accommodations in prime locations.

If you stay with us during the summer months, we'd love to take you out on our 50-ft yacht for a complimentary afternoon sail and lunch (catered by a restaurant / bar we own) around the Boston Harbor (schedule and availability permitting).

Also feel free to inquire about special rates on massages and one-on-one personal training sessions at businesses my father runs on Hanover St. in Boston's Quincy Market / Faneuil Hall area (Bodywaves and Fitness Together).
