maria r from edinburg, TX recommends this vacation rental.

First time I use Home away and I reslly like it!! Only problem, no washer and dryer, and no change of sheets, we stayed two weeks and I asked for clean sheets and towels, they charge $25.00, we pay for laundry, why not provide clean sheets and towels at least evey week if you stay more than 1 week for free?

  • Manager Responded on 3/30/2017

    Thank you for the nice review. We would love to provide an in-residence cleaning for free, but in order to keep prices down for everyone, we do have to charge a nominal amount for linen service for during a stay. Guests staying in units without a washer dryer do get linen service at no charge when staying for monthly stays. And we are always ready and happy to do more often, for the minimal fee. Thanks again for staying with us!

a guest from Kitchener, ON recommends this vacation rental.

Charming apartment, with good amenities. Just as described. Its on the 3rd floor, so stairs may be difficult for some. A busy street, so a little noisy, but close to subways, coffee shop, restaurants, grocery. Property well maintained. Had a little difficulty getting internet connections, and therefore controlling the temperature, but property management was very responsive to emails, and fixed the heating right away. Wifi was also available at the coffee shop a block away. Loved the 224 Boston St restaurant next door, and the Dorchester Brewing around the corner. They have a caterer/food trucks each night to get dinner along with craft beers. It looks to be in a neighborhood being regenerated. Felt safe walking to the JFK/Umass subway station (13 mins). Only 3 stops from the major subway hub downtown. Would definitely recommend and visit here again.

  • Manager Responded on 11/26/2016

    Thank you Kathryn! We were thrilled to be able to put together a complicated booking to accommodate your last minute needs! We hope you will visit again and enjoy Restaurant 224 next door and the Dorchester Brewing Company around the corner! Oh, and that pesky internet issue has been corrected... sorry that you had some difficulty for the first two days of your stay.

Hailey L from Dayton, TN recommends this vacation rental.

We had a great stay at the Mayhew apartment. It was clean, airy, and had everything we needed to be comfortable for our 4 night stay. Very roomy, and with so much charm in the old wooden floors and ornate knobs and light fixtures. We used public transportation all week and didn't rent a car and it worked out perfectly for us. There is a bus stop right outside the front door, and 2 T stations within a 10 minute walking distance. There is also a Target about 10 mins away, which was handy. The property managers were quick to respond to all our needs. The building was quiet, and there was some noise on the street below but this wasn't bothersome to us at all and didn't hinder us getting a good night's sleep. It is on the 3rd floor and no elevator access, which was fine for us but would understandably deter others. We would definitely stay here again if we return to the area!

  • Manager Responded on 11/26/2016

Jordan F from Sherman, TX recommends this vacation rental.

Great value. Good location. Lots of street noise, but I'm not used to being in a city. Ear plugs took care of that. The mattresses are extremely firm, but I prefer firm over soft, so that was no problem. Internet worked easily and was fast. TV allowed us to catch some of the Cowboys game. Overall, I'd recommend it.

  • Manager Responded on 11/26/2016

    Thank you Jordan! City noise is unavoidable, but we do have double pane windows that are sound dampening and foam insulation in the exterior walls to dampen vibration and sound. For most, this is great... but I do understand if you are not used to a city, it can be a bit notable. Thanks again for being our guests!

My rental experience was great. The place was pretty, clean, and had everything we needed. I like the location and the French restaurant next door was amazing. My only bad experience was getting our car towed the first morning there. I failed to see the sign on our side of the street and the sweeper days are different for the other side of the street - so make sure you check for signs on the side you are parked on.

  • Manager Responded on 7/6/2016

    Yes, watch out for street cleaning! Other than that you shouldn't have any issues. Thanks for staying with Swank Properties!

Our stay was very nice. We spent 15 days (my wife and me and our two small dogs). The place is good, very well furnished, with good appliances and clean! We had necessity of some technical support during our stay and it was given promptly and the problems were solved in a very fast way! I would strongly recommend this property for those on vacation and for those as I that was there for a 2 week period until finding / rent a definitive apartment.

Christian G from Ludwigsburg, Baden-Wuerttemberg recommends this vacation rental.

Eine echte Überraschung, der einwandfreie Zustand mit viel Holz, schöner Einrichtung und alles sauber und gemütlich. Wenn man die sehr fortschrittliche Anmeldung etc. über App überstanden hat. Für fortgeschrittene Semester etwas schwierig.
Die Kücheneinrichtung wirkt nicht ganz so neu wie der Rest der Wohnung und auch nicht ganz so vollständig. Das könnte daran liegen, dass keine persönliche Übergabe erfolgt. Die Lage des Hauses ist etwas abseits, zwar mit der U-Bahn sehr gut erreichbar (Fußweg ca. 10 min), aber man läuft nicht unbedingt durch die beste Gegend. Abends bzw. bei Dunkelheit sind wir lieber zusammen geblieben, obwohl wir die vier Tage nie unangenehme oder verdächtige Begegnungen hatten. Trotzdem hat die Qualität der Einrichtung das mehr als wettgemacht.

Very nice apt, very cute and clean.

The place was very clean, very nice, big bedroom and wonderful amenities (internet, tv). Nice bathroom and even a dining area.

We really enjoyed our stay at 230 Boston Street. The apartment is lovely and gave us plenty of room for the 5 of us. The "T" into Boston is only a few blocks away and so is the Stop and Shop grocery. I found the phone app somewhat cumbersome and thought it would have been nice if a general map of the area with the "T" stop, grocery, restaurants had been included in the apartment. Otherwise a great place to stay in Boston with FREE street parking - always a plus!

Joellen W from Wilmington, DE recommends this vacation rental.

My fiancee and I planned a weekend in Boston for his 30th birthday. We had originally planned for about 5-6 people, but it ended up just being the 2 of us. We were very pleasantly surprised with the property (you never know what you're going to get with internet photos!). The property is a big house that is split into 4 units. The whole house is secure, only tenants can use a key to get in, and then each individual unit can also be locked. Our unit had 2 full bedrooms and a smaller room with a fold out bed. The house was clean and the furnishings were very nice. It definately had that historic charm kind of feel =)

Parking was conveniently located across the street. However, the week we went they had part of the street shut down due to construction.... So we had to park 2 blocks away, big whoop!

Downtown Boston is really close, we took a taxi to & from the city for about $10-15 each way (did't want to risk drinking & driving!!), public transportation is also very close.

Overall, we had an amazing time. We would recommend this property to everyone!

This appartment is located 30 minutes from downtown Boston (15 minutes walk + 15 minutes T train). It is a good start point to visit this beautifull city.

The beds were very comfortable. The appartment was well furnished and squeaky-clean. The rental price was fair.

When we arrived, the key box code that was sent to us was not working. Fortunately, Shawn, the manager came quickly to fix the problem.

We also found 3 window shades on the dining table. We had to replace them by ourself.
We would have like to find few spare blankets, and newer pots and pans.

In general, we are very satisfied of our stay.

a guest from Woodland Hills, Utah recommends this vacation rental.

Apartment is very nice. Old wood floors and updated doors, moldings, paint and appliances. The bed in the second bedroom is a double (not a queen). Quite close to bus stop, and about a 15-20 minute walk to the T. Getting into downtown Boston was easy and quick.

We were there during hurricane Sandy, and were forced to stay inside one day because all public transportation was shut down. Despite the storm the house was snug and dry (but for one leak in a window that stopped when the rain stopped).

When we got there one of the window blinds was on the floor and the bathtub was full of water. After we drained the tub it appeared not to have been cleaned (dirt and a few hairs remained). Management responded very quickly, however, which was nice. There were plenty of towels and blankets.

It's right next door to a wonderful restaurant/bar. Free parking on the curb was handy. Decent neighborhood, too. We felt safe walking to and from the subway.

Because of the weather we were given a free late checkout, but didn't need it after all. Overall, a very nice stay, hurricane and all!

Robert A from Corpus Christi, Texas recommends this vacation rental.

Our stay lasted 7 days, from the Sunday before Labor Day to the next Sunday; and with the exception of a couple of frustrations, the stay was enjoyable. First frustration was trying to obtain entry. We spent 15 minutes trying to get past the front door. The emailed directions are very confusing and poorly written. Once we were upstairs, there was no air conditioning. In fact, during this unusually warm Boston weather, we had no air conditioning Sunday or Labor Day Monday. The apartment was exceptionally clean and very well provided! It has a very homey and relaxed feeling about it. One suggestion...a clock! Just a inexpensive, battery-operated wall clock in the front area could make a big difference. Love the Dorchester area and I had easy access to the Boston sights by the MTBA. I would definitely stay there again.
PS- Had a great time at the restaurant, 224, right next door!

Nous sommes satisfaits. Une fois comprise la démarche pour accèder aux clefs, les lieux s'avèrent très adéquats: en face du bus,à 5 minutes de marche du métro, 10 de l'épicerie, un bon restaurant de quartier à côté. Outre les pôeles et chaudrons usés, et le fait de devoir marcher 2 minutes pour la buanderie, le tout nous a pleinement convenu (2 adultes, 2 adolescents et 2 enfants en bas âge). Ceci dit, il importe de planifier ses déplacements dans Boston (un quartier par jour, 5 jours) afin de se déplacer en métro. L'usage de la voiture est à proscrire en raison du traffic. Le parking près de la résidence est parfois difficile mais 5 minutes suffisent pour se garer à proximité. L'achat d'un billet hebdomadaire de transport en commun est donc la solution.
En espérant le tout utile.

We really had a great stay in the flat. It was nice and clean, spacious (even for 6 people) and all the commodities were very close. I would recommend this property to all!

Michael T from Bagsvaerd, Copenhagen recommends this vacation rental.

Spent one week in Boston and New England. Apartment is excellent for families who want to avoid the downtown buzz. Neighbourhood is quiet...almost too quiet with relatively few places to eat and shop. Easy downtown access by public transportation and easy access to freeways + plenty of free paring if travelling by car. Property management was efficient and helpful with our very few questions.

a guest from Brussels, Brussels recommends this vacation rental.

We stayed in Mayhew apartment for 4 nights in June, 2012. In general, the apartment is very nice and the furniture is of good quality. It's very spacious, so there is more than enough place for 4 persons. The location was fine. We used the red line of the subway to get to the city center. It takes about 15 min to get to the JFK station and then 3-4 stations ride to the center. As an alternative we sometimes used taxi (app.12-15 dollars to the center). The big grocery store was quite far from the apartment - 20 - 25 min walk, but it was ok for us. What we didn't like was that the climate controle system was set up on too low temperature and it was not possible to change the settings. Besides, the owner was unreacheable: we messaged him and called him once - he never replied. The check-out instructions were not that clear. Also, it was said that we had to clean the apartment before we leave, take all the dirty sheets and towels to the laundry box, take out the garbage (where - was not clear). We were on vacation and it was a bit annoying to finish the trip by making that cleaning, especially as it was mentioned that right after our check-out the cleaning team will come. I wonder what their responsibilities are...

Tiffany Z from Pittsburgh, PA recommends this vacation rental.

It was a really nice stay and we couldn't have asked for better... especially for that price! The only complaint was that we had a three bedroom, and alas, only two blankets. But besides that, the apartment was clean, beautifully decorated and well located. We most definitely recommend staying here!


What a great city. Condo is close to everything.....
