Alicia's place was wonderful! The location was perfect. I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go (Boston Commons, the North End, the Public Library, Newbury Street, Copley Sq). There are many things to do right outside the door. Tons of great restaurants within feet of the apartment. The neighborhood felt very safe with many families around.

***Warning, noisy!*** Yes, this neighborhood is so cute and central. Yes, Alicia was a perfect host and super helpful and communicative. We had a great weekend, but if we would have known this apartment was directly above a bumpin', line-down-the-street-to-get-in strip of bars, we would have spent the same amount of money on a hotel. Alicia was wonderful and gave earbuds and noise machines but we ended up feeling like there was a reason this apartment is an AirBnb instead of a full time apartment and the amount of money we spent could have been better spent elsewhere.

Being from the area, I knew Alicia's place was centrally located and it worked out perfectly! We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend her place if you're visiting Boston! She also had great recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area!

We were visiting Boston for the first time for my 40th birthday and could not have been happier with Alicia's place. Perfect location, plenty of food and drink options in the neighborhood, and just a block from the T line. Everything was very clean. She took great care to make sure we had everything we needed for a great stay and she put together a binder with clear instructions for everything and some of her own recommendations for places to go. There's a bit of noise at night from the bar down below, but she provided ear plugs, and the bed was so comfortable that I slept through it anyways. Everything was fantastic and I'd love to stay here again!

Hi everyone! I've lived in Boston for a few years now and absolutely love it. There's always a great event going on and a new restaurant to try. Some of my favorites are Lolita's (Mexican) in Back Bay and Toro (amazing tapas) and Coppa (Italian) in the South End. I'm out-go…
