Thank you for entering your review. The review will become available to the system shortly.
I’m addition, several events occurred during our stay and caused signicant inconvenience:
1. Toilet clogging before we used it on day 1
2. Dishwasher backfilling to basin on our first use on day 2
3. Garbage disposal not working
4. Stove/microwave out of electricity (and gas) on day 7
5. Keypad (main door) not working on day 7.
While the property management team responded to our email, no one ever showed up to try to fix these issues, and that was disappointing. I believe this property coujd be a great place for a family vacation, but unfortunately it is not until it’s properly maintained.
The apartment is very clean and the beds are comfortable. The neighborhood seems safe and it is quiet for sleeping.
The quirks: We paid for early check in and late check out. They did warn us that we would get several automated messages about the regular check in time and check out time and to ignore the messages. It got to be a little confusing for me! But we were able to check in on time. However, our door code stopped working earlier than our check out time. Thank goodness we had someone still inside to let us in!
Other quirks: We had some lights out and a toilet that was not doing it's job. Management responded to my first email about them but not my response. We avoided the toilet after we were not able to get it to work, there were two more in the home.
Even with the quirks, we would stay again. I loved the neighborhood and the home. :)
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Marlene! Yes, the parking space, when available, is only appropriate for a compact car. We tried to talk you out of it but were ok with you seeing for yourself. The best option was the parking garage that is walkable from the house. And for a point of clarification, this unit is in the neighborhood of Charlestown in the City of Boston. Bunker Hill Monument, USS Constitution, walkable to the North End, etc. Glad you made memories!
The only downsides to the property were that it is located on a private drive with no parking available and the only view is the back of other houses, the TVs in 2 of the bedrooms weren't connected to cable and the clothes dryer didn't heat/dry very well.
The property is well furnished and spacious. We have no issues with 7 folks there.
Great communication with the property owners, pre- , during and post stay.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Ian! Appreciate you and your nice words!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Mark! Your group was great and hope you can visit agin!
Response from Swank PropertiesGreat! Thanks Armando!
Response from Swank PropertiesThank you for your nice review Claudia. We really appreciate when our guests take a minute to tell others about their experience! Please come again and also thank you for leaving the home in lovely condition upon departure!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks so much Patrick! We really appreciate you, your group and the quality of your review. Thanks so much and please come again!!
One suggestion. Potential renters who have difficulty with steps should select an alternative location.
Children’s Halloween parade around Bunker Hill was an unexpected bonus.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks for the nice comments Anne! To clarify about steps, this house is a historic townhouse, so it is tall and narrow. So if you choose the Master Bedroom on the third Floor, there are many steps to take. However, there are beds on the 2nd Floor and also the fouton in the lower level. So there are options. But if stairs are difficult for you, let us know as we have units that provide elevators and no steps at all!
The bedrooms and living areas are well furnished. The house is in really good condition and very clean. The kitchen is well equipped to prepare meals, even though we just had take out food. The temperature in the house was easily regulated, they also had extra blankets in the closets. The bedrooms had nice storage capacity for clothes. The bathrooms were spacious and the showers had good water pressure (don’t forget to bring soap and shampoo)
Response from Swank PropertiesThank you Gaby! You were a lovely group to host and are thrilled that you got to thoroughly enjoy your visit!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks so much David! We really appreciate having your group here and hope you return someday to visit!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Linda! And yes, this home is a 18th Century urban Boston townhouse, which would have seen the Battle of Bunker Hill. So there are lots of stairs and not for the physically challenged. We have other homes with elevators if that is the case in brand new buildings.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Sandra! Parking is not owned by us, so we need permission for its use. SUV's are not considered due to the overhead height and narrow width.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Craig! We very much enjoyed having you visit. Please come again!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks for the nice review Chloe! We are sorry that we only earned a 3 for services and will continue to try to improve on that! Regarding the basement, the previous furniture was older and the owner is upgrading it now, thus the sparseness currently!
Response from Swank PropertiesThank you so much for the nice review! For future guests that have a question about parking: parking is available occasionally when we can rent from the neighbor. Only small vehicles and courteous car owners are considered as the space is small and the neighbors value polite parking. Feel free to inquire about parking and we can check on it for you!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Alan! We appreciate the nice words and accuracy!
Response from Swank PropertiesThank you Nola! Your group was so nice to host! And your enthusiasm was infectious and appreciated. :-)
Response from Swank PropertiesA new hairdryer has been dropped off, as the previous one must have stowed away in someones luggage. Thank you for the review! As we mentioned to you, there is new furniture on order and new pictures will be taken soon after! All the new beds and mattresses are in... great quality and super comfortable. The livingroom sofa will be headed downstairs and a new sectional sofa will be presented in the livingroom. There won't be a TV in the basement, but there is a HDTV in the Master Suite and another in the Livingroom. We are considering adding another tv, but we are currently assessing if it will be used or just redundant. Happy to hear your thoughts!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks! And sorry about the cable! It is now fixed. Please do come again and remind us that you are a returning guest for our discount!
Your request has been sent. We look forward to meeting all your vacation needs!
