House Rules and Information

We like to think of all of our guests as friends and hope that you will treat our apartment as you would treat yours, not as one might treat a hotel room.

There is NO SMOKING allowed in the apartment at any time.

Damages: if you notice any damage when you arrive, please report it to our office so we are aware of it and don’t assume it happened during your stay.

Laundry: there is a European style washer/dryer combo unit in the apartment. The manual is located on the left side wall in the closet. This is a high efficiency energy efficient unit. HE laundry detergent only is to be used. Be advised that wash/dry cycles take a considerable amount of time.

Bath: there is a hair dryer in the bathroom for guest use.

Linens: When you are done with your towels, please put them in the laundry basket in the bedroom. It would be great if you can take the sheets you have slept on and put them in the basket as well.

Closet: clothes hangers are provided. Please only hang hangers on closet rod. Not on furniture and never from ceiling sprinklers. (yes, it happened!)

Neighbors: this is an apartment building. Please be respectful of your neighbors. No loud noises after 10pm please.

Please be aware that in these old buildings, noises transmit easily through the hardwood floors. Our downstairs neighbor would appreciate if you can walk softly and minimize the moving of furniture.

Internet: wifi is available and the passcode is on side table in the living room

Trash: Please do not put the trash out on curb or the trash cans in the back yard. Our cleaning person will remove the trash from the unit. Do tie up any trash bags before you leave though if there are food items in the garbage.

Damages/Repairs needed/items missing: Please report any existing damage to us. We want to know about things and we ask our cleaning lady to check over the house each time a guests leaves because unfortunately some people are not very careful and things get broken, damaged and taken and we want to keep the place up so that the next guest is comfortable as well.

Suggestions: We also welcome suggestions to help improve the guests’ experience.

Thank You!! We hope you feel like a guest and treat the apartment as one you would like to be invited back to. We understand accidents happen … if something breaks, let us know, it’s probably not a big deal, we know glasses drop now and again. We’d like to be able to replace things so the next guests will have everything they need.

We are frequent travelers, mostly Europe, and we are fussy when choosing a rental. This rental was one of the easiest and flawless experiences we had. Yoshika is a consummate landlord. She responds extremely quickly and provides thorough answers. Check-in was a breeze. The apartment is in a Bostonian brownstone, in a neighborhood that will remind you of London. The layout is spacious, the kitchen is well equipped, the bedroom is large and comfortable, and there is a small office room off the bedroom, where you will find a balcony that overlooks the back yard - a treat for a city apartment. Water temperature and pressure were great. The building is residential and quiet. If you like to walk, you can get to many sites on foot. Otherwise, there is a bus stop right outside the door, numerous bus lines near by and subway stop on nearby Massachusetts Ave. There are wonderful restaurants, bakeries, and coffee shops in the immediate neighborhood. Yoshika provides excellent instructions in her house book on how to explore the neighborhood and Boston. This is a wonderful apartment, owned by a person who knows what she is doing, in a neighborhood to savor. Many thanks, Yoshika!

Had a wonderful Easter Weekend in this lovely apartment. Yoshika is a wonderful host who is easy to work with and very responsive to any communication. The apartment is exactly and I expected. The neighborhood has everything you need (even a walk in medical clinic a block away!). Will definitely come back for another visit!

This apartment is bigger than the photos show. I love the huge canvas in the LR. Really makes the space. Generally quite quiet for an urban place in a packed neighborhood. Completely equipped kitchen though consumbles are the usual ~random collection of a few things guests have left so if you are staying more than a day or so and want to cook you may want to bring or purchase small quantities of essentials beyond salt and pepper, e.g olive oil, vinegar. Foodies semi-gourmet market is ~6 blocks East on Washington. As long as the weather isn't absolutely abysmal, it is an easy walk to the Mass Ave Orange Line stop or up past Symphony Hall to Boylston St. The neighborhood has a surprising number of good restaurants including Mike's, a classic diner in the next block, open til 3pm, Jaho, good coffee across the street and Orinoco, super Venezuelan 2 blocks away on Shawmut. An enjoyable week.

Now that my husband and I are empty-nesters, we spend a lot of our time traveling. When we are not in Boston, we put our home on AirBnB. I hope you enjoy your visit.
