    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    3-BR apartment in charming area, with bistros, cafes, tennis courts, subway station, and groceries a short walk away.

    This apartment is on the second and third levels attached to our Italianate home. Comfortably furnished with a new kitchen, bathroom, cable TV, WIFI, an Omann Junn dining set (early 1960s Danish), etc. Upstairs, there is an additional Japanese Tea House brought over from Kyoto in the 1920s (not sure how you would use it, but you're welcome to hold tea ceremonies). Since we live nearby, we prefer quiet guests but are otherwise flexible. We've lived in Boston for twenty years so are happy to help guide you through Boston, if needed.

    The kitchen has a Miele oven and stove top. A Bosc dishwasher. A Smeg Fridge (that I fill with goodies for your arrival)

We'll always remember this place, tucked in the trees. Only drawback is the steep staircase between the 3 bedrooms and the rest of the flat. The bathroom is on the lower floor, so the creaky stairs woke us up in the night. The kitchen was stocked, and the whole place was clean and inviting. more

Management response:

The apartment is attached to the main house and was built shortly after the original home which was in 1840! Might this explain a bit the 'creaky stairs' which I have no control over! This is a historic home. Also these were stairs that led up to a former 'attic' which is what gives this apartment its 'perched on top'... more

We had a great time in Boston thanks to Razan who recommended activities and must-sees. She is a wonderful host who made us feel very welcome at her beautiful home. There is free on street parking, a number of restaurants nearby (make sure to eat a burger at The Haven), and you're downtown within 20 min by train. more

This without doubt has been the most beautiful vacation we ever had. Apartment is perfectly located close to public transportations, clean and very practical . Our hosts were great and helped us on pretty much everything from restaurant reservations to finding babysitters.
