There is also a separate area home office working area/desk. The living room contains a couch that pulls out into a queen size bed. Next to the couch is a full body (shoulder all the way down to your feet) massage chair – and you may find that once you use it, you'll never want to leave – feel free to use it to your heart's (and body's) content.
Beds: 1 queen bed in the bedroom, and 2 twin bunk beds in the nook/study inside the bedroom, and the sofa turns into a queen bed. The space can fit 4 comfortably (2 on each queen bed and sofa bed) and then extra people: 1 on the each of the twin adult bunk beds – please note that the bunk beds are just a nook off the main bedroom, and even though there is a door between them, you have to walk through the main bedroom to use the other areas of the unit. The bunk bed is metal and is rated for 300 pounds on each level. Also remember that there is only 1 bathroom for all to use.
There is a FULL kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, silverware, cutting boards, knives, etc. Microwave, Stove/Oven, Refrigerator, Dishwasher (and soap), Coffee Maker, and even some basic snacks, soda, and water, that you are welcome to utilize for free.
The calendar shows the true availability for the unit - and thus what is available, is shown as such and your request will likely be approved very quickly.
Laundry is in the basement and is free, but must be accessed from the outside. You have free reign of the laundry detergent, bleach, and dryer sheets.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, dishwasher, rice cooker, coffee maker (with coffee/tea/sugar/cream) - and a few basics of ramen and mac & cheese ;).
There are also board games and card games for your enjoyment.
WARM/HOT Weather: There are air conditioning units in each room, and Dyson fans (hot and cold) in the rooms – you should be very comfortable.
COLD Weather: : The unit has hot water baseboard heaters along the walls and is controlled by the Nest thermostats – feel free to turn it up or down as needed. The same portable fans above (Dyson), also provide excellent and powerful heat - one in each room with a remote control – feel free to use them – they will heat a room very quickly.
FOR LARGE GROUPS: If you have a larger number of people traveling together, this is 1 of 3 units in the same building, with another building of 3 units just a few blocks away. So depending upon availability, so we may be able to book your group into multiple units - just let us know how many you have and we can customize a solution for you.
This is not a party pad as this is our home and there are many families that live on premises, next door, as well as are hosted by us and we as well as they will not hesitate to call the police if there are any hints of a party. We are trusting you to treat our property with the same respect as your own.
NO parties or loud music at any time, no smoking period - and definitely no loud noises before 9am or after 10pm, in consideration for our neighbors above, below, and to each side of the unit. The existence of Homeaway.com depends upon the kind consideration of our neighbors - please help us keep up good community relations. In an effort to help ensure you have quiet and peaceful enjoyment during your stay, we have surveillance video cameras in all the common areas of the building - of course, none inside the units. Breaking these rules forfeits your stay and your deposit and a fine of $1000 (this is how serious we take it)
Please enjoy your stay! Thanks!

Nov 2016: “These guys are well prepared. Very smooth, access with codes, the place was impeccable, and the SHOWER head... oooooohhh that shower head... AWESOME! Also, the mattresses are VERY VERY COMFORTABLE ... even the bunker ones; you'll get a good rest, promised. And... right next door... a pub! silent, you won't notice any noise from the apartment, but, how convenient. Will definitely go back there. ”
Nov 2016: “This unit is in the best part of Southie, it is very quiet but you can get to all the bars are restaurants very fast. When they remodeled the unit they did not skimp on detail and perfection. I would highly recommend staying here if you are in town for vacation or business. “
Nov 2016: “This place is a home away from home. It may sound like a cliché but Mac and Sean's taste in decoration is great, practical, and amazing. From the comfortable, spacious furnishings to detailed oriented instructions and suggestions in our surroundings, our stay went without a hitch. A mere 30 minute straight walk to downtown Boston, Convention center and surrounding area. Fluffy towels, ultra comfortable beds, ginormous tv (but you are here to explore Boston, right?). Lets not forget the strong WiFi signal (again get away, go outside this is Boston). The Spa style shower, the high quality extras, and the complimentary snacks and beverages. It's a must stay again and I forgot to mention affordable and comfortable even if you have five or six people. My colleagues in our floor were complimentary of my choice in this spacious home away from home. Great job guys!”
Oct 2016: “Mac was very accommodating and the apartment was immaculate! Having coffee, water bottles and appliances was a wonderful plus too! Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Southie!”
Oct 2016: “Mac was an absolute pleasure! He made sure I had everything I needed. The apartment was absolutely beautiful with extra pillows and blankets, plenty of clean towels. Next time I'm back in Boston, I'll make it a point to do so when I can stay here. This was an absolutely great experience. Thank you!”
Oct 2016: “Mac's place was just as described -clean, organized with modern electronics and appliances. Checking in was easy and the keypad door entries were very convenient. We had everything we needed, including snacks, soft drinks and water that Mac stocked for us. Overall a great experience and thoughtful hosts.”
Oct 2016: “Great apartment, conveniently located 10 min away from the convention center. Mac did a great job of communicating with us, we received a really detailed Manual before coming with the answers to all question we could possibly have and he answered really quickly to all messages. Mac went above and beyond to make us feel at home, the kitchen was stocked with coffee, tea, water bottles, sodas and the bathroom had plenty of towels. If I have to go back to Boston I will definitively stay at the same place!”
Oct 2016: “… The massage chair....OMG, a dream! ...”
Oct 2016: “Mac was SOOOO accommodating! We had to change some things about the reservation and he hit everything in stride. The location is great, extremely great place.”
Oct 2106: “This apartment in Boston had everything we needed. The apartment is nicer and larger than the pictures reflect. Everything was really clean and included lots of extra bedding and towels as well as coffee, water and sofa. Nice touch! The beds were really comfortable. Close to restaurants and transportation. Telegraph Hill restaurant and bar next door was excellent and convenient. Mac was easy to reach and quick to respond. Will definitely reserve again the next time we're in Boston!”
Sep 2016: “Great hosts, great place. The pictures don't do it justice. It is very roomy, and comfortable. This was my wife and my first trip to Boston - and our first trip with our 3 month old baby. Mac and Sean put our travels worries to rest by offering to provide a crib/pack n play, and a high chair - and we didn't even ask before they had offered! It was great. Having full laundry available was a huge plus as well. The hosts are also immediate with responding to any possible issues you may have ... The place is on a cute street right near the park, and easy walking distance to any public transportation- even with children. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a worry free stay in Boston.”
Sep 2016: “ … the great location of a historic district with a great view! The actual place was great, clean, more than enough space for all of us. We enjoyed the location, train was 10 minute walk from house. Restaurant/bar down the road had a 10% discount that we used. Neighborhood was nice as well, historical site at top of hill it was overlooking Boston. Perfect for first timers to Boston!”+ More
