Thank you for entering your review. The review will become available to the system shortly.
1) Door Code provided did not work - spent 3 hours trying to contact someone to get us into the property. This was after coming in on a red-eye so we'd paid for an extra night of the property in order to get right in an sleep and instead spent three hours in stairwell with all our luggage. Do not rent if you have to check in outside of business hours -- or insist on a cell phone contact # instead of the 888 number that didn't get any response.
2) Construction next door starts everyday at 7 AM
3) Neighborhood is up and coming so still a little sketchy at night but on its on way up. Also wasn't comfortable that there was no deadbolt so anyone with the code could access the property even when you were inside.
4) TV only worked sporadically -- a couple hours here and there.
Once inside the place is nice, good amount of space, all the amenities one needs - comfortable beds.
Response from Swank PropertiesJust a tip: If an outlet doesn't seem to work in a bedroom, flip the switch that is not the overhead light. Those plugs are on the switch at the door so you can turn on a table lamp from the door without having to turn on the overhead. Another tip: Surrounding streets are "Resident Sticker Only" Mon-Fri from 10am to 2pm. If you are away during those four hours, you can park there the other 20 hrs during the day. If not, park right on Boston Street where parking is not restricted at all. JKust watch for street cleaning days/times. Cleaning is a couple hours twice a month.

Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Julie! It was wonderful having you stay with us! And I will mention to the restaurant owner your compliments as well!. He will LOVE that you called it an"amazing little gourmet bar/restaurant." Exactly what he is shooting for!
One of my biggest complaints is the chairs in the kitchen are very uncomfortable. It was tough to sit and eat a meal in the kitchen.
As far as activities, we went to a game at Fenway, Whale watching, the Freedom Trail, a visit to the USS Constitution, and a trip to Salem. We didn't have a car and depended on public transportation, all very easy and convenient to use. We bought the weekly Charlie Card so we didn't need money for each trip.
We would stay again on any return trip to Boston.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Wendy! Much appreciated!
The house was very clean and seemed recently renovated. Kitchen basics were there, as far as dishes, pots, pans, etc, but don't expect spices or condiments!
The kitchen table is small for 6 people, but we just got cozy.
We had a great time and the house worked well for us!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Staci! We loved having you. But I think you got the rating system backwards. ;-)
