Great place. Exactly as advertised. It had everything and was in a great location.
This was a great unit. It had everything that anyone would needed. Paul was a great host, and was always helpful and responsive. I loved this place!
July at The Nest
We had the good fortune of renting the Nest for our recent, 5 week visit to Boston. There are so many wonderful things about the property and location that contributed to a wonderful stay.
My daughter and I marveled at how such efficient use was made of a smaller unit, and we had everything we needed at our disposal, including full size appliances, pots and pans, dishes, extra towels, etc... The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the AC unit provided plenty of cold air and relief during the few hot, humid days.
The building is very quiet, and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. And by the second week, we were both used to the four flight stair climb, and actually enjoyed it.
The location in beautiful Beacon Hill provides a very central walking location, convenient to stores, restaurants, historical points of interest, and business locations. In addition, the Nest is very close to a selection of MBTA stations.
Paul has not missed a single detail in making the Nest a wonderful home, away from home. Our visit flew by, and we look so forward to a future visit and stay at the Nest!
Fantastic Place to Stay!
New to Boston and needed a temporary place to live. This was perfect! Great location, clean, quiet, comfortable. Paul was flexible and made it easy to pick up keys before check-in. Checking out was a breeze. You can’t beat the location - an easy walk to restaurants, stores and other points of interest in the city. I’ve already recommended this place to my friends and family.
Location, location, location.
Well, that was a fast 31 days. Ah, The Nest. We were always glad to get back to it after a long day of sightseeing. As you might gather from the above, we couldn't have asked for a more centrally located base for exploring Boston and its environs: a couple of blocks from Whole Foods, a CVS pharmacy and bank, less than that to a neighborhood restaurant (The Tip Tap Room) that became a favorite, and perhaps best of all, just three blocks from a Blue Line T station, which with a transfer or two, will get you almost anywhere you need to go, including the commuter trains (for trips to Concord and Salem), the harbor ferry (to the USS Constitution), Fenway Park, the aquarium and most museums. It's also maybe a five to ten minute scenic stroll to the Commons. We also found both taxis and Uber to be inexpensive. Beacon Hill itself is hard to describe without resorting to cliches. It's a small part of Boston but within its boundaries it's like being in another world with its brick sidewalks, fascinating stoops and doors and stairs, trees and vines, flower boxes and plantings. When you come to a major thoroughfare, its like popping out of a wormhole, as if you've traveled from one century into another. You will never tire of it. The Nest itself is interesting. It's small -- about the size of an efficiency apartment but we found -- and Paul may get a chuckle from this -- that it actually seemed bigger than we expected from the photos. I thought we'd be constantly elbowing ourselves, but it took on a certain incongruous spaciousness that can't be fully explained. Everything worked and -- do not discount the importance of this -- the mattress was perfect for us. I don't remember a bad night's sleep the entire time we were there. It's also amazingly quiet for an apartment building. The view? Eh, let's just say it's urban. And we could never seem to get the water in the kitchen sink hot enough so we boiled water when we did the dishes. If you're cooking, be sure to vent the kitchen with the little fan that's provided, because the smoke alarm seems to be extremely sensitive (we only set it off twice, ha). Being there in October, a transitional season to be sure, we never could figure out the rhyme or reason for when the heat came on and off (admittedly the outside temp was all over the place during our stay) but when it was on the apartment was nice and toasty. And I see I've run out of characters. In summation, it was everything we hoped it would be.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this detailed review. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and did so many side trips in the greater Boston area. This reservation was booked a year in advance so I really wanted to make sure it was the best. Feedback noted, I'll check out the sink valve to see what's going on. Happy Travels! Paul
Cozy, comfy, and quiet
Stayed here for a business trip. Everything I could have ever wanted was either in the room, building, or walking distance. It was as close to perfect as I could have expected. Paul anticipated nearly everything...read the entire welcome packet with map, etc.! Very helpful! Not much of a view, but worth the extremely reasonable rate if you are planning to spend most of your time outside the room.
Just 2 minute walk to Freedom Trail at front of State House and the Boston Common one way and an urban Whole Foods grocer the other; 8 minutes walk to three subway 'T' lines and quaint Charles Street; 15 minute walk you will reach Faneuil Hall, Newbury Street, the North End, Theatre District and TD Garden for events.
We've been renting high-quality furnished accommodations for over 10 years, exclusively in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. Our motto is to live small but without compromise.
