This 1bed apartment is located right in the heart of Kenmore Square, just a 7 minute walk to Fenway Park. Perfect for a Sox game!
It is located on the 2nd floor of a historic Boston brownstone building overlooking the Commonwealth Mall. Steps from Back Bay, South End, the Esplanade and close to Boston University and Northeastern University!
Wonderful stay as always! I can’t recommend Healing Homes enough really. We stayed for around a week and everything was just perfect. I love the home feel of this apartment so much, Steven is always responsive and the unit was just what my girlfriend and I hoped for! This was our second time staying here and I’d be happy to stay again in the future. Newbury st is literally a five minute walk from the unit and there’s a huge selection of restaurants and stores to choose from! If you get the chance trust me and book it.
If you are going to a game, or want to hang out in Kenmore Square or Back Bay you can not beat the location . A short Uber ride will get you anywhere else with ease. A wonderful little space we wouldn’t hesitate to book again.
Had an awesome stay in Boston. Easy to locate, easy to check in, easy to walk to a bar or restaurant or metro to get around the entire city.
Nice stay. close to everything. right in the heart of boston but not in the busy areas. Plenty of street parking around
The location was great but I was expecting a bit more than what was received. The bedroom was smaller than expected and some of the fixtures needed attending. Security was good with key coded locks on the building front and the apt itself. Wish there was a grocery store nearer to the place, at least one that I could find. Host was great and the support they offer to medical travelers is admirable.
Great location. Close to T stops and public transportation. Beautiful, treed street. Huge living/dining room. The bedroom was small as I expected but, the carpet was stained and freying at the door and along the walls. The kitchen was small but, well equiped. Bathroom was small (as expected) but walls need to be wiped down. Many light bulds were out, towels were small and the sofa material is balling due to use. The whole apartment just needs a little love and it would be a nice place to stay.
If you are looking for a responsive host, close to public transit and clean then look no further! While the pictures didn’t exactly match and it does some require some upkeep it was clean, extremely close to public transportation and the host was quick to respond. I would highly recommend!
A great space supporting a great cause! The space is what you’d expect out of living near the Boston colleges. Walkable to Fenway and different music venues with your choice of restaurants out the front door. We can’t wait to stay here again!
Enjoyed a mini vacation, easy commute, and great places to eat
We stayed here to be near the baseball stadium and we definitely were! Super easy and convenient walk. Location is great to walk to other areas of Boston too. The inside is very clean. Had everything we needed to stay for one night.
The best sleep that I’ve had in a long time was in this bedroom! Let me tell you why. Yes, the bedroom is small, but the quality bedding and comfort of the mattress makes up for it in spades. Close the blinds, turn on that AC, and enjoy some quality rest! My partner and I were in town for a concert at the MGM Music Hall, which is an easy walk to from the property. We parked the rental car at the garage attached to the Target near Fenway for 2 days. It did cost a bit of $$, but that was expected. There is metered parking on the street near the entrance of the property, but you must renew the meter every 2 hours via an app. It was convenient to load and unload the car for check in and check out. The Kenmore T station is easily accessible and preferred if you don’t want to drive around the city. The property itself was thoroughly clean. The hot water in the shower/tub was A+, it was easy to get in/out, and all together I would definitely stay here again in the future.
Great location, super smooth check-in process, exactly as described as the listing, overall a good price for the weekend stay. And the host was kind enough to offer flexible checkin and checkout time. Would def come back again.
Great night stay and super walkable to Fenway Park. Cozy and comfortable. Just what I was looking for.
This apartment was a great location for dropping kid at university, close to all the college of the Fenway. Close access to the T station that can get you anywhere in the city. Walking distance to Fenway Park, but also makes it a very crowded area during periods of home games. Property management really were quick to respond to email and helpful in late checkout.
Incredible location near Fenway and MGM Music Hall. Easy access to public transportation, restaurants, and shopping. Cute little place to rest between adventures. The bedroom is challenging to get in/out of because it's small but the rest of the apartment is spacious and cozy. We loved our time there!
Perfect location! So convenient and accessible to the whole city. A block from public transit and soooo many shops and restaurants in very walkable distances. Clean, comfortable and safe. I will for sure stay here again.
Spacious, clean and air-conditioned space. Steven was very responsive and check-in was smooth. Book with confidence!
Close proximity to Park made walking to game with grandchild easy. Property was close to restaurants and other attractions to make visiting Boston a great experience for our grandson and the property was spacious and uncrowned for two adults and a child.
Easy check in, nice place and very convenient location. Would recommend
We stayed in this spot because we had tickets to the baseball game at Fenway Park. Great spot for being close to Fenway and lots of good eateries and stuff that was within walking distance. The unit itself had things wrong that made it less desirable. The bedroom was super small and you could not even open the door all the way because the bed was in the way. There were walls that were unpainted, a couch that was different than was in the photos and was a little tattered, lights were burned out or missing, lack of wash cloths for the length of our stay and a loose bathroom faucet. The place met our needs but we probably would not stay again.
Great location, easy to get to the train or walk to Cambridge. Very clean and spacious.
Perfect location, comfy bed, the place had all the necessities. We had a great stay.
The property was nice and quiet and near the stadium. It did have a stale cigarette smoke smell that, after a couple days, was off-putting.
Stayed for two nights for a concert - great location; perfect space for a quick trip at a good price.
Great place! Walkable to many cute areas, clean and homey apartment
Appartment location is great. It was clean but some of the furnitures were really worn and spotty (eg. Sofa). Also it is impossible to sleep at the appartment without waking up 3-5 times during the nigtt since the AC is just on top of the bed and the windows+AC are not soundproof so you hear loud and clear any even smallest sound from the street. There were people talking loud, one car accident, two times garbage collection during the nights etc… overall OK appartment but I would not reserve again since it is impossible to sleep there without waking up several times.
Such a gem on com ave! we will definitely be back!
Location is fantastic, convenient and walkable to so much; loved how close it was to transit. High ceilings give it a very spacious feel, perfect for a weekend trip or longer. The bed was super comfy memory foam and everything was clean. No issue with neighbors or noise, and temperature control was good. Highly recommended.
Perfect for what we needed it for. Would definitely stay here again! Also happy to support a great cause
Wonderful location and comfortable apartment!
Very beautiful and spacious apartment. Definitely recommend.
In the description of this airbnb, host writes that he will get his personal security team or even police involved if you break a house rule such as make a noise disturbance. This seems extreme to me. You really do not have to threaten to put your security team or an armed agent of the state on people, especially for doing something as small as breaking an airbnb rule. It comes off as aggressive, unwelcoming and rude. If anything police would put the host of this bnb in jail for wasting their time with a petty thing. Of course you should always follow the rules of a host, but a house rule infraction can be dealt with through more peaceful means than getting police or "security" involved. The light switch with the dimmer didn't work at all and the building is a fire hazard. Couch is too big for the wall and blocks the fire exit. In an infraction of fire safety laws the bedroom door closes inward and doesn't open fully because of the bed
Nice and comfortable apartment, had everything we needed, easy check-in, and communication with the host was great.
It was really fun!
The place is clean and spacious. The location is great and is close to everything
The location is excellent, and the place is relatively quiet (no noise from outside, but some noise coming from neighbours). The main disadvantage is the late check-in time, namely 5pm. It also seemed like the heating system did not react to my attempts to increase the temperature, so staying inside the apartment for half a day or more in the winter may not be amenable.
Great apartment in a good area of Boston, nice to walk around and walking distance to the park and downtown. The apartment is good, has everything you need. During our stay, there were minor problems with the windows that needed repair, but the host kindly offered us the option of relocating to another beautiful apartment for the time being. Therefore, we were completely satisfied with our trip.
A nice cozy flat with all the facilities and easy access to the public transportation.
Steven’s place was just as described. It was an easy walk to food, shopping and the convention center. The hosts were very responsive and eager to help. I would stay here again if I returned to Boston.
Great location and very cozy place! It was everything we needed.
This unit is pricey, but a superior alternative to staying at a hotel if you're at a conference or something in the city. Big, spacious, and (once I turned the heat up) warm. The water pressure in the shower is a little low, and the bed room could be a little drafty, but I'd stay here again, especially after finding out that this group hosts families/medical professionals in town for medical reasons.
My son and I were in Boston for college visits, and I wanted to stay the night close to Boston Univ. and the subway to help give him a feel for the city. This apt was a stone’s throw from the Kenmore stop on the green line + so many choices for great, walkable restaurants + we walked around the campus of BU. The whole time we felt safe and there were lots of people around. The apartment itself was as described. We didn’t use the kitchen or shower or watch TV so can’t speak to those m, and the bathroom is micro, but it got the job done and was very clean. The bedroom is also very small, as in the door can’t totally open, but I had already seen that from reviews. The living room is spacious, loved the JFK framed art—on point. :) My son slept on the couch and there wasn’t extra bedding so we had to make that work, but no big deal because I hadn’t asked. It was perfect for what we needed. Easy check-in and out. We came late and left early, no problems at all. Location makes it A++. Thanks!
Great stay for a couple! Very walkable area. The only con is that you can’t control the temperature and it got really hot. But, there is a small fan for you to use in the bedroom.
Good location and great communication. Details about apt and check-in was clear and easy. Parts of the apt aren’t well maintained (ceilings have water damage, couch is stained). Rest of the apartment was very clean. Bed was comfy, but room was too small that the door hits the bed. No coffee/water bottles. Parking was fine on weekend, but recommend buying a spot in the back during the week. Dog friendly is always a plus. Thanks!
very nice place
Steven's place was very conveniently located and a good sized space to wind down at the end of each day. Everything was clean and we had no issues.
This was a cool building that was perfect for walking around Boston. The bed was comfortable and it was clean. I’d recommend it if you’re going to be sight seeing and need a place to crash
Great place to stay. Make sure to have your Netflix, Hulu, HBO, etc passwords. There didn’t seem to be any regular tv access. If that’s not a worry, everything else is great!
Overall this was in a good location and the place was clean and comfortable. We didn’t give five stars because the bedroom was very stuffy (bed was also too small for the average sized couple), the shower faucet didn’t work properly and there was a constant ringing noise in the rear hallway that wouldn’t stop even at night. Overall it’s a great deal but if you want high quality and peace and quiet this might not be the best fit.
Steven was a great host. The apartment was cozy and had everything we needed for a multiple-day stay. Overall it was a pleasant trip to Boston!
Nice place very close the Fenway Park. Cafe below appt was great and open late.
Great location, quiet neighborhood, accommodating host. Just what I needed for a week in town for work.
Very clean and in a great location!
Great stay, highly recommend
All good, clean, centrally located and good communication. Only recommendation is to check in earlier because at 5:00 pm it changes the itinerary of your stay.
Steven is a great host - the team responds very quickly and are very pleasant to rent from. The location of the place is great, especially if you want to catch a game at Fenway Park. However, given the cost, the space isn’t really up to scratch. There is damp/peeling of the ceilings in the bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom is tiny - you can’t open the door more than enough for an average person to slip by. It is also quite dark and dingy with the peeling ceilings and stained carpet. I would happily rent from Steven’s team again but not at this location.
Great location and easy check-ins/outs. Would definitely choose again in the future. A bit noisy at night but it makes sense because of the location.
The location was perfect for our needs.
We were so grateful to find this property so convenient to Berklee where our son was attending camp. We had paid double this cost at the Sheraton a month earlier. A little tricky to find parking but the location and convenience to great restaurants made this property a good find. Also good to know that they will accept pets. Excellent communication for any questions we had. Thanks for a good stay!
Absolutely loved this apartment, I would recommend this for anybody looking to stay in Boston, its the perfect apartment unit for couples. The living room is spacious and comfortable and has everything you need, the bed was comfortable and has an air conditioner to keep the room cold during Summer. Check in with Steven was so simple as everything is smart locked, the area is beautiful in Commonwealth, train is right outside the unit which makes getting to all of Boston so easy. Me and my girlfriend will definitely be staying here again in the future, Everything you could honestly ask for, Steven is an amazing host.
Great location and very clean. We had some issues with the front door once, but the team was super responsive.
Great spot. Close to Fenway Park and everything Boston has to offer. Check in was easy, nice sized living room, comfortable bed. Quiet. Would recommend as well as stay here again.
The apartment is cozy and comfortable and walking distance to Fenway Park, stores, restaurants and bars. Also near a train station so you can visit downtown and other places of interest.
The hosts communication is great but the property is old.
Very clean, and a great location for taking in games at Fenway Park. The host team is very communicative, and when we did encounter an issue it was resolved within a few hours.
Lovely neighborhood and extremely convenient. Parking space easily sourced via Spothero.
Highly recommend this place!
very nice place. great communication! in a great location
My brother and I were in Boston attending an event at Fenway and this place was perfect for our needs. I gave him the bedroom and I took the couch--which was very comfortable--and we had plenty of room to stretch out and unwind. The building is older, yes, but the apartment is well appointed and spotless upon arrival. It's also less than ten minutes on foot to the park and on a strip of restaurants and bars that serve good food late. Couldn't have asked for a better situation for the couple of days we were there.
Great location close to Fenway. Easily accessible with many great bars and restaurants close by. 5 stars all the way!
I reread reviews to see what I missed when I booked this space. Our overall opinion is the price is too high for what you get. The location is very convenient, the apartment relatively quiet and the living room is bright and spacious. The bedroom is so small you can only open the door 2 feet before the door hits the bed. The bathroom is tiny and dated. Very little attention has been paid to making the decor warm and welcoming. We were also worried about security; the outside door to the building has to be propped open during the daytime to allow access to the smoke shop on the first floor. However we frequently found inside door propped open as well meaning anyone could walk into the building in busy Kenmore Square. Please note they indicate they will charge you $20 a day if anyone else enters the unit so we were afraid to allow our daughter to enter for 15 min after work before going out to dinner. Overall disappointed with quality of this listing for what we paid
The apartment has a lovely large living space. The kitchen is quite small, but there are plenty of restaurants nearby. Great location!
Very close to Fenway on the second floor. Quiet!
Very convenient location near the hospitals and Kenmore subway station. Spacious living space although small bedroom/kitchen/bathroom. Overall very functional and clean.
Steven is a great host, quick with any response to my texts. His place is clean and comfortable; the living area is spacious and light. The Kenmore Station is so close, and because you can reach it on all Green Line trains, there is not much waiting around. A very quick walk to Fenway for a Red Sox game and NU graduation made it the perfect location!
Excellent apartment in an excellent location. The owners were extremely responsive and helpful with questions. The unit is spacious and well appointed, with a large living room, comfortable bed and fully equipped kitchen. Given the location in the city, it is surprisingly quiet in this apartment! I forgot to bring my earplugs and it didn’t even matter. We would certainly stay here again 😊
Perfect for a visit to Boston! Clean, cute and excellent location. Host has great communication. We will definitely stay here again.
Don’t stay here. Dirty and old kitchen and bath and a bedroom so small you can’t close the door. Plus a 5 pm check-in time, never heard of such a thing.
Stayed here for a week in April 2022. The place was perfect and just what I was looking for. Conveniently located to everything. Great wifi and workspace (as I was working while in town) and the kitchen was fully stocked and I was able to prepare meals. Had an issue with the shower drain, but a quick communication and it was addressed. Great Host!! Great Space!! I will stay here again.
Steven and his team responded to every question or concern I had, promptly. They made sure I am happy and taken care of. I look forward to stay in one of their units next time I am in Boston. I highly recommend Steven and I am grateful for the hospitality I received.
This location was perfect for our visit! Lots of great food and drink spots nearby and about a two minute walk to the closest transit station to get you anywhere else you want to go in Boston. Very quiet and secure and great for anyone looking for a nice stay in Back Bay!
Very good location!
This place is great. Fully furnished, quiet and easy to get in and out of. Close to lots of shops and restaurants. Would definitely book here again!
This is a really great option for those who prefer an actual apartment over a cramped hotel room. The kitchen, though small, is fully equipped and allows you to cook a breakfast or lunch without having to leave the door. The living room is really spacious and separate from the bedroom, which is really nice if you just want to spend some time there instead of going out. The location is absolutely with perfect, with several restaurants really close by and even a sandwich shop in the very same building. Connections to public transport are really good as well, with a subway station just a minute's walk or so away. The only tiny downside is that the shower is not great, at least during our stay: there was no way to have the shower head run without also having the tap for the bathtub running, which meant you would stand in water up to your ankles by the time you were finished showering.
The room provided was as described, clean, comfortable, and enjoyable. Such a unforgettable experience!
Great place to stay! It was beautiful and close to everything!
Great location!!! Apartment was very clean, spacious, and quiet. Quick walk to fenway and in a really nice area. Host very responsive!!
Lovely apartment in a great location. Steven was a wonderful, communicative host. We really enjoyed our time in the space and appreciated how straightforward using the brownstone apartment was.
Great place! We loved the location and the apartment is a great size/very comfortable.
The place was as described. I would definitely stay again. The location was perfect for me. Great pizza on the ground floor.
We loved our time in Boston and this little apartment definitely helped. It’s location really can’t be beat. It’s a short walk to Fenway Park and the train or bus station. We had no trouble exploring Boston using primarily public transport from this spot. There’s a wonderful cafe just downstairs from the apartment we would recommend, too. Some of the spaces are a little small and it can get a little cold at night, but the main living space is roomy and there were extra blankets provided that helped us stay cozy. This BNB is highly recommended.
The apartment is nice but there are few details that could be improved.
Good location and place
Nice location, All needed amenities, Helpful staff.
The apartment is good. There are some details that could be better.
Very well located apartment in Kenmore/Fenway area. Had everything we needed. Host was very quick to respond to questions. Good place!
Awesome location, very walkable and close to the train. Quieter than I thought, would definitely stay again!
Great communication from host and comfortable place! Good location right next to the Kenmore T station. Pretty quiet too, can’t hear any of the street traffic at night.
Great location, very responsive and easy to communicate with, lovely place and would definitely recommend for future trips to Boston.
great communication great place, 100% recommend staying here
Great place, great location, easy check in and Steven responds to all messages very quickly. Highly recommend this place!
Amazing location, minutes from the T, made visiting the east a breeze to navigate. Would definitely stay here again!
This was a great place to stay. The apartment was pretty spacious and all the windows were really nice to keep it bright inside during the day. Although the central location is a bustling area, the apartment faces away from the street so it’s pretty quiet!
Fantastic place!!! We’ll stay here for every game!
You can’t beat the location and the proximity to Fenway! We found great dining options just outside the door. The living room is bright and spacious. The bed and bedding are extremely comfortable. Communications are clear and responsive.
An excellent location near Fenway park! The host is very communicative and informative.
Excellent location walking distance from Newbury street and shops, and across the bridge from MIT. The main space of the apartment is spacious but less modern / new than in the photos.
Steven’s place was perfect for us! Spacious and bright, and in a great location. We stayed here for a concert at Fenway Park and it was very convenient!
Great location for visiting our child at Boston University. The bed was very comfortable, with high quality linens, and the family room is spacious and well lit. The bathroom is small but did the job. Would stay there again for sure.
The location was great. Kitchen only had 3 dinner plates, 5 glasses and some lunch plates. There were a few pans to cook with but no supplies. Luckily our daughter lived close to there so we never cooked there. The bedroom had a bed that fit the room but the door could only be opened enough to get in the room. It hit the bed so there was only enough room to get in and out of bed. The bathroom was small. They left two towels and two wash cloths, no hand towels. The living space was large and the windows overlooked and alley and dumpsters. I think this place was taken off the VRBO site.
Great roomy apartment that was perfect for a short visit to Boston University. It was a comfortable place to relax in the evening after a long day in the city. And the pizza shop downstairs has great desserts!
If you’re looking for a comfy, clean space to stay with no hassles, easy access to the T train and super close to Fenway park; look no further 👍🏻👍🏻
very clean & owners communicated really well! great area too. close to lots of great areas.
Comfortable stay in Boston close to everything within a walk or bike ride! Cafes and restaurants and barber shop nearby! Great communication and easy accessibility to building & apt! Thanks 😊
Not a good place to stay. We were locked out 2 of the 3 nights from the main entrance as were others staying in the same building. Luckily someone was coming out and let us in. Made it stressful not knowing if we would be able to get in after a long day in Boston. Bedding was dinghy and the apartment was really hot. It was a hot couple of days while we were there though. It was close to Fenway. I won’t stay there again or recommend to my friends.
Pros: - close to things to doc (back bay, walking the bridge over charles etc) - host is responsive and catered to our needs - spacious and bright living room Cons: - no a/c in bedroom so if you close the door to sleep it might get stuffy with just the small fan in there - shower pressure is on the low side, and no bath mat nor shampoo/body wash etc - housekeeping crew did not clean the coffee grinds from the last guest Overall a decent stay, some home improvements and nice touches from the host would have made the stay more homey.
Great location! Huge space! We had a blast
This is a great location. Host responds quickly and even allowed an earlier check-in. Unit was very spacious and clean with shower necessities. Place was very quiet and easy to access while still feeling safe. Has a nearby cafe, convenience store, and bar. A perfect location for someone visiting without a car. Highly recommend.
The brownstone reminded me of some neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Its a fair size for a family of 2-4. Fenway is about a 10 min walk. Downtown is maybe 2-3 miles. Uber is from 12-18$ depending on time to downtown area. Parking in front is metered from 8am -6pm. $5 for 2 hrs. Not bad. Can leave car parked after 6pm. Will usually find parking on same block. Make sure u know what day is street cleaning (1 day a week) so u don’t get ticketed. Price is very reasonable. Cafe, sports bars, sushi bar on same block. 7-11 and dunkin on next block. Quit area with grassy area to sit and relax across the street. Host will help with any questions I’m sure.
Apartment is located in a relatively convenient area. Probably more suited to shorter stays (?). Host was not as responsive compared to my previous Airbnb experiences. An adequate place to stay.
This apartment is in a great location! My son & I were in Boston for a week looking at colleges and we truly enjoyed this clean, quiet apartment.
A convenient place to stay if you plan on seeing a Red Sox game!
Great little spot! Around the corner from Fenway. Besides Yankees losing three straight while there I still enjoyed location. Clean and convenient. Walking distance to son in Mission Hill and right next to BU campus. Also, street parking was easily available and was free on Sunday!
Had a great time at Steven’s Airbnb. Great location in Boston and very spacious for 2 people. Would recommend for anyone wanting to stay in the Fenway area!
Location is brilliant. We were most interested in the MFA and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and this was a perfect walking distance to these locations. Fenway is absurdly close and it seemed a crime that we didn’t see a game. As for the unit itself, it has great space and the AC works brilliantly, though the bedroom did not have its own AC and it got stuffy at night. Kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans, wifi was easy to connect and the huge couch was a great spot for a nap.
Perfect spot for a game at Fenway! Spacious and clean.
The apartment was super clean and had everything we needed. Parking was easy to find on Friday night, a little tougher on Saturday but we found a spot right out front after taking a couple of laps around the block. I loved park right outside and I read great reviews about the cafe downstairs. Hopefully we can check them out next time!
Fabulous location as well as communication with the host. We were pleased with the flexibility the host offered! The apartment is spacious as well.
Steven's place was great. Clean. Close to a lot of things. Air Conditioning that works. Thanks Steve.
Square footage misleading.. location is great
Excellent location with clean and timely service.
Beautiful location, nice apartment with high ceilings and lots of natural light
Great spot to stay near Fenway. Super convenient. Very easy to communicate with the host.
Steven’s place has a great location, and its very big.
High ceilinged apartment with large lounge space in a convenient location, close to public transport, restaurants and with stores in easy walking distance. Property manager was responsive
