Thank you for entering your review. The review will become available to the system shortly.
Since we like cooking our own food, the found that the kitchen had the bare minimum. One of the bedroom, has no window, if the door connecting it with the master bedroom is closed. Since the apartment is on the top floor, there are a few flights of stair to climb. We had no problem with that, but thought that some guests may want to know.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Liliana! We are glad you enjoyed the apartment and we have news that the owner has agreed to a full restock of the kitchen items. Thank you for helping us make that happen! As for the smaller bedroom, we recommend that room for light sleepers as it is completely noise free. Light sleepers love it!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Jay! We loved having you!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Jennifer! You and your guests were awesome and thanks for being so conscientious with the departure instructions!
10 out of 10, would stay here again!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks so much Dominic!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Tracy! Appreciate the visit and the nice words!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Sharon!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks again Kathryn!
Two points to regret : you definitely need a car to go downtown + a bit noisy (air-con in evenings from the nearby restaurant + early awakening because of the traffic). This is however quite acceptable.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks Pierre! I would like to point out to others that the subway is 12 minute walk away and a quick ride to downtown. A car is absolutely NOT necessary. And yes, the fan from the lovely restaurant is a bit noisy when out on the terrace, but it is not heard from inside the unit. Glad you stayed and please come again!
Response from Swank PropertiesWe appreciate your recommendation, Gaëlle! We hope to see you again soon!
Response from Swank PropertiesThank you and it was an absolute pleasure having you as our guest! :-) You were indeed a pleasure to host while you were here in Boston!

Response from Swank PropertiesThanks for the feedback, Ted! Glad you liked the place!
Response from Swank PropertiesWe're pleased to hear that the Penthouse exceeded your expectations, Ryan! Thanks for choosing Swank Properties!
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks for the feedback, Carolyn! We enjoyed having you as our guest! By the way, we have added full length mirrors to every one of our bedrooms! As far as the bathroom, there is a lock... but its one of those pin locks that you have to pull out/push in.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks for the nice comments! I'm so sorry that you thought there is no door between the bedrooms. There are sliding/pocket doors between the bedrooms, along WITH the curtains on both sides for extra privacy and sound deadening. And we are so glad you enjoyed the place, Colleen! Come back and visit again soon!
Response from Swank PropertiesThank you so much for all the kind words, Leslie! We really appreciate when guests take the time to leave feedback for us; positive or negative. Such a glowing review is icing on the cake!
Response from Swank PropertiesWe heard that you were walking to the wrong T Station! The station to walk to is the JFK/UMass Station, which is about 10 minutes away by the quiet, residential side streets. Sorry that you went to Andrews Square, which is 15-20 minutes away. And thank you so much for the kind words, Mary! We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us in Boston. We look forward to seeing you again!
The neighborhood could be a little loud at night, but nothing obnoxious. We really loved the neighborhood as a whole and the proximity to the subway was very good.
Response from Swank PropertiesWe appreciate the kind words, Suzanne! Hope to see you in Boston again soon! Thanks for choosing Swank Properties.
Response from Swank PropertiesThanks so much for staying with Swank Properties, Leigh! We're glad you were able to enjoy your stay in Boston. Come back and visit again anytime!
