Our Stay in Little Italy
Warm, cozy, charmingly updated. This space is ideal for a couple or family of 3. We vacationed our butts off by day and came home to our darling home-away-from-home at night. Ideal location to sight see historic Boston. Efficient use of space provides ample room in closets. Furniture is functional and comfortable. Excellent coffee pot. Clean and, again, comfy. In my opinion, better than the bland and boring of a hotel. For the duration of your stay, you are a guest in the oldest part of Boston. And 2 blocks from some killer cannoli (and the Old North Church). The Freedom Trail is RIGHT THERE! You're also within walking distance of multiple green parks, historic cemeteries, roughly 1 million eateries (fuzzy math), the New England Aquarium, trolley stops, coffee houses, and all manner of cultural awesomeness...seriously, open the windows at night and let the soul-warming scent of garlic bread waft through the space. The renters are very thoughtful and generous. Knowing we were to arrive with our 3-year-old at 1AM, they prepared a twin size air mattress, inflated and made up with construction themed bedding. Additionally, they provided a complimentary copy of "Make Way for Ducklings" with a kind note for our child. (You're thinking, "Wow! That's so sweet!" ...I know, right?) Neighbors in the building are quiet. You feel safe in the space, above the street and behind 2 locked doors. Due to the location, traffic is minimal and therefore we found it to be quiet enough for good rest. We are from a small town, so we were somewhat apprehensive about what to expect being so "in the city." Things to consider: -Bring toiletries with you like shampoo, soap, etc. -Towels and washcloths provided -Coffee was provided, but we did use our own. -Tasty tap water, bring your refillable bottle. -Full-size fridge for saving some cash -Some plastic-ware is provided also for convenience -Cable TV in common room and bedroom -Location is close to Bova's Bakery...you'll go home with a pound or two extra of "happy living weight." (No worries, comes right off when you exit Little Italy and return to the real world.)
