Just a perfect place for one or two and Charlestown is a quiet corner so close to city center and the airport!

I had a great time in this flat and overall my experience of Boston was fantastic ;-) The flat is exactly how it is described in the advert (just notice that the bathroom is small and the ceiling is low, to avoid being disappointed). The area is lovely, super safe and very picturesque. If you need to travel long distances, Uber Pool works like a charm.

We felt at home as soon as we arrived! The apartment had its own little door right on Cross Street, and was a step down from the street. The inside was cozy, clean, with every amenity we could possibly have needed (and many things that we forgot and then found ready for us!) It's really the little things that made us very appreciative - the beautiful and clean fluffy bed, the fact that the address was written nicely in the notepad (where we might need it when taking something down), the ample number of bowls, pans, a cutting board, and water boiler, and the nice chair to sit. One of us is highly allergic to animals and dust mites, and Rachel had it professional cleaned just for us, and we didn't have any problems. Charlestown is magical - it's a bit far to walk to town if it's cold, but we were happy to do a combination of Uber, walking, and riding the T. Overall, we had a lovely 10 days, would highly recommend Rachel and Nate as hosts, and hope that others enjoyed Boston as much as we did!

We loved staying here! The apartment is close to everything - great bars and restaurants, transportation, and the Freedom Trail. The apartment itself was lovely and had everything we needed. And Rachel and Nate were so easy to communicate with and work with! They checked in with us during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We would love to stay again!

I'm 6' tall and had no issues getting in and out of the apartment. The place was clean and as described and the location is great. Plenty of good restaurants in the area, close to the T, and being near the wholefoods was a big plus. Rachel was very quick to communicate the couple times I had a question for her. I'd definitely stay here again if I'm in the area.
