The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood and is clean with all the things you need. We had a great time and it is close to the subway station to get into Boston.

Pros: great location to get around Boston, but not be in fray of downtown, no noise, nice local neighborhood, clean, lots towels,
Cons: creaky beds-every time you move beds creak! Tv- come on basic direct tv and not smart so you can’t even sign in to your Netflix or other accounts, what if you have children and want to separate, really not so swank? Need some upgrades to bedding and parlo furniture had a burn from some previous stay, sorry I hate to give poor reviews but I want you to succeed by making small changes.

We had a great time! The place was clean and roomy. We loved the back porch! We did think there would be a grill but did not see one out back. The AC was ok. Didn't seem to cool effectively. The front small room was pretty warm. The shower curtain needs to be replaced. Mold. Parking was good and location was good. Neighborhood was nice.

We where very happy with the location of the property. Very clean.The coffee pot didn't work but the owner replaced it for us.

We picked this W. Roxbury location for its easy highway and public transportation access plus street parking. The upper floor unit was clean, spacious and the kitchen fairly well equipped. There's a Roche Bros. within walking distance. We travelled with our dog and there's a great dog friendly park nearby. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was myself, my boyfriend, his son and my daughter. The place was a good size for all of us. It was in a very quiet neighborhood. We loved the screened in porch off the kitchen. I was a bit disappointed that the place wasn't as clean as other reviews made it out to be. There were also numerous broken items in the apartment. The towel bars in the bathroom were all broken, so no place to put wet towels or even a hand towel. There were only 5 dining chairs, and one was wobbly. The garbage disposal didn't work at first. Despite these minor issues, we did enjoy our stay and would stay again.

The apartment was very nice. Tastefully decorated, great kitchen, plenty of space. The neighbourhood is very nice and is a short walk to the metro that takes you directly into Boston. Also, plenty of air conditioning that helps on humid summer days. The only minor concern - very minor - is that the wattage of the bulbs in the dining room and the kitchen were very low and may visibility in the evening pretty bad (perhaps I missed a subtle dimmer switch somewhere). I had to take a lamp from the bedroom in the dining room at dinner so we could see properly.

Compliments also to the property managers, Swank. Very professional outfit. They have their own app which they make great use of. All access codes, password and check out details were provided.

When we arrived we discovered that the cleaner had not showed up. Dirty towels, sheets, etc. It was very easy to get to Swank after hours and they were able to rapidly organise clean sheets and towels. They also promptly refunded the cleaning deposit.

We've used VRBO/HomeAway frequently and for many years. Sometimes mistakes happen. Swank was able to manage our issue quickly and professionally.

We've just returned from a great week in Boston visiting friends. The apartment was in a good location for us and for a family of 5 was quite spacious. It had all the necessary amenities and well maintained. On the downside the WiFi connection was poor and very intermittent. Also the blinds were difficult to manage as some of the springs were gone so it meant the apartment was dark at times. However having said that we had plenty of towels, kitchen ware well stocked and all the small items like soap, detergent etc were there which isn't always the case in rentals. Lance my contact was very professional, helpful and easy to work with at all times. Overall I would recommend this apartment.

We took a week in Boston the 5 of us and my aunt. The place was in a great neighborhood. Close to food, stores, and coffee!! Easy access to main interstates. Would stay again for sure. Probably the cleanest Vrbo I have had so far. AAA+++

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this convenient West Roxbury location. The apartment was updated, but still maintained the charm of an older home. Spacious living quarters, along with a very well equipped kitchen, allowed us to entertain Boston relatives during our visit. Grocery store, restaurants, and the commuter train were all within walking distance. We hope to stay here again!

Nice flat, good location, clean, mostly well-furnished. The couches were not comfortable or in good repair. The internet was poor, almost impossible to retrieve from the foyer (to get lockbox code). Once in the apartment, the service dropped regularly especially in the living room. Given the answer to our query, it’s clearly not a new problem. Given the cost of the flat, that it’s advertised with WiFi and that they clearly knew it was an issue already, the internet should have been fixed before we got there.
What is annoying, and it is not limited to this company, is the fees for “extras”. We were charged $125 for cleaning. There are 3 problems with that: (a) cleaning should be part of the up front price, it’s not as if it’s optional, (b) if I’m paying $125 for cleaning, why is there a long list of things I have to do before leaving that look an awful lot like cleaning if I want my $250 damage deposit returned? (c) I’d have cleaned a place of this size and nature two or three times for $125 (and I’m very well paid in my day job). Of course, the company wants the price to look attractive on the listing so the “extras” get left out, but that just means everyone’s being a bit shady.
The second problem was the $50 “damage protection” fee. Again, not optional, so why was it not in the daily rate? There’s no good answer to that. What is the $50 fee, which is not optional, if not just another money grab? And if I’m paying a $50 damage protection fee, why am I paying $250 for the deposit? Oh, right, they need the deposit in case I don’t do all the pre-cleaning clean-up that I’m paying $125 for the privilege of doing myself.
All things considered, a fine apartment, but practices that while, not unique to this company, are still pretty deplorable. Star ratings based on apt. not extra fees.

We stayed in this apartment for four nights while touring Boston. The apartment was sparkling clean and very comfortable. It is in a quiet, suburban neighborhood outside of Boston. An easy, 10 minute walk from the apartment brings you to a grocery store, several casual restaurants and a 24 hour 7/11 store. Be aware that travel into Boston can be expensive and time consuming from this location. We took Uber, although one can walk to a bus stop that will take you to a subway or train station (we didn't try this, since as a family of five it was easier and no more costly to take Uber). A fabulous plus was the laundry room in the basement. There are two washers and dryers available free-of-charge! The beds have wonderful, high-end sheets and there are lots of large towels provided. This property has a cozy back porch off the kitchen, perfect for enjoying morning coffee or a nightcap. Another very nice surprise was a $20 Uber credit and a $25 restaurant credit provided by Swank Properties, the property manager. Overall we were highly satisfied, and highly recommend this apartment!

We were in town for a race. There are five in our family. Three kids, aged 9, 7, and 5. The place was plenty big, but the bathroom is small. It was clean and comfortable. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Driving into Boston was easy.

We were in town to visit Boston Children's Hospital. They location and amenities were just right for our family and our needs.
Victoria E. November 13, 2016
I stayed at this lovely duplex at the last minute since I had a family member in the hospital (Brigham and Women's) and live too far away to visit regularly. It is a very sweet, attractive, well-cared-for and well-furnished upper duplex, larger than it looks in photos. It was in an ideal place for access to the Longwood area, and had good restaurants (we liked Misono) and a supermarket in walking distance. Free laundry (out of the unit) was a plus. The neighborhood feels safe and people were friendly. I stayed there with two dogs. If I have a criticism, and it is a tiny one, it would be that the lock on the front door is pretty flimsy; I would have been nervous staying there as a single female. It also would have been nice to have a door at the top of the stairs, it would not be difficult to fall down a long steep flight. But I would recommend the place to the fussiest of my friends and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.Thanks for making an otherwise difficult time a whole lot easier.

Wir waren mit 5 Personen für eine Woche zu Gast in dieser Wohnung.
Die Wohnung ist groß, sauber und ruhig gelegen. Wlan hat ab und zu ausgesetzt, aber wurde schnell behoben. Küche ist echt super, komplett ausgestattet. Handtücher waren genug vorhanden. Badezimmer sauber, klein aber praktisch. Leigt etwas außerhalb von Boston, aber mit dem Auto in ca 40 min zu erreichen.
Zu empfehlen für mobile Gruppen odre Familien.

Lovely condo. Great patio. The location was close to all things important. Would definitely recommend this property.
Patrick M. May 18, 2015
Our stay started on a bad note as the key that was supposed to be in a lock box...was not. We waited 2.5 hours for this to be resolved and a key provided to us so we could enter the apartment. This would not have been so bad except we arrived at 10 pm and did not get in until 12:30 am. By the time we unloaded our bags and settled down we didn't get to bed until about 2 am. The first night the place was muggy and hot, the windows did not open and there was one small fan for the whole place. The next day window air conditioners were installed, but were so noisy we didn't use them. The kitchen was not well appointed, and we did cook in a fair amount but did get by. There was trash in one of the drawers in our bedroom, very dusty on the floors under furniture. We had 4 in our party and each had a room, one room quite small with a futon, but in order to have an air flow we had to leave all the doors open...therefore no privacy. We spent so much time exploring the Cape and Boston that we weren't there except breakfast and sleeping. Walking distance to a nice breakfast diner in West Roxbury

Just what we needed. Close to my daughter and easy to get around

Very clean

Although this property was relatively well maintained and the location convenient to restaurants, shopping, and the like, we were less than completely satisfied with our stay. The location is a bit complicated to get to, and travel to other locations in the Boston area more time consuming than expected. The instructions from management that we park in only limited specific spaces on the street was kind of hard to comply with when other cars in the neighborhood occupied those spaces. We received a supposedly clean towel that was dirty, and we were not informed that the washer and dryer were in an unfinished basement. When we went to use those appliances, others had left laundry in both. Finally, the kitchen was not as well equipped as we expected, based on the description. Some basic cooking utensils were missing. Still, we mostly enjoyed our stay. The beds are confortable, heat and hot water plentiful, and the kitchen appliances worked well. Do note that there is only one bathroom and it lacks towel bars and has only one hook on the door.

We chose this area to stay in because it was very beautiful and had great access to a nearby bus stop with connections to both the green and orange rail lines. By purchasing a 7 day Charlie Card, our travel around Boston was seamless. The accommodation was as described and contained all the necessary items we needed for our stay.

A little better than average.

This property was so charming and it was all about the 'welcome home!'
Everything was in great shape and spotless. I always look for little touches, little details that make me feel safe and carefree.
We slept well in the big, comfy beds and heard nothing - not one sound - from the streets below.
It was close to downtown - which was an old-fashioned, but also somewhat modern place to spend sometime.
We drove a short way to Roslindale and Hyde Park and wandered through shops there.
The stay was just what we needed and close to the train station.
Anonymous September 5, 2015
The location was a short drive from the t-train system so getting into Boston was easy. The apartment was nicely and comfortable furnished. The kitchen was good except it was missing some small cooking tools. Overall, it was a good place to stay.
karen z. May 3, 2016
really loved this duplex and the location. We had the top floor. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, kitchen, dining room and living room. Great bedding and sheets as well! only thing was the wifi was not working but sure it is something they can fix.

Our family celebrated a graduation and stayed at Alameda2. We thoroughly enjoyed the home away from home and found the space to be welcoming and restful. We were a family of 5 adults and 1 small child and had family visiting with us while there. A great place for us all that I would recommend to others.

This was our second time staying in this property to visit our college student. Close enough to the campus and in a friendly, cozy neighborhood. Allows us to bring siblings along for the trip. Property managers easy to work with and the property was clean and well maintained.

It was avery good experience for our first time at Boston.
The property is very nice, clean and comfortable.

Our visit was to celebrate our daughter receiving her Masters of Science from Northeastern University. The property was in a perfect location with amenities close by (groceries, starbucks, etc.)After long days and tons of sight seeing, our party of 7, was able to sit down and relax in a comfortable space. Our long weekend was exceptional! Additionally, checking in and out was with great ease.

We, a swiss family with three teenage kids stayed 4 days in the appartement. It is better than the pictures suggest. The kitchen is very well equipped (looks like new) and everything clean and useful. Every room is on first floor and the layout of the appartment is a bit strange for us but large. The house itself is old but it all hase a nice New England atmosphere. The neigborhood seemed to be very safe and friendly - we had some nice talking with people on the street. The owner live next door and was very helpful and friendly. We took us 30 min drive to Boston downtown and we found parking place at Boston Common parking garage to a reasonable price.
We all loved to stayed at that place and can higly recommend it.
Edward L. July 7, 2013
Washer/Dryer was in the basement. Not very clean and difficult to find the lighting. ALso a bit dangerous navigating the stair wells. A small banister would be helpful. The weather was quite warm and additional unit in the first bedroom would have been helpful.Other than that the property/neighborhood was wonderful.
Sandra R. August 15, 2013
Very efficient kitchen; plenty of counter space and large 'fridge and freezer. The kitchen was well furnished. Beautiful floors and woodwork.
The 2" foam on the beds made for comfy sleeping:)
There were plenty of outlets to plug in our phones, iPad and etc.
The fixtures in the bath were in great condition and the shower head rotated to accommodate different heights.
A washing machine, laundry detergent and dryer were available in the basement. You will need a flash light to get to the basement until the lighting situation is taken care of.
There is no stair rail along the front stairs to the second floor.
The screened in porch was a delight.
This is a great location. The neighborhood was quiet; parking was easy; it was easy to get downtown with public transportation. We caught a bus at Central and Corey, then took the orange T the rest of the way.

Nancy G. October 21, 2013
If you need access to the West Roxbury/Jamaica Plain/Roslindale side of Boston, consider this roomy comfortable property for your stay. Quiet building with most amenities (dishwasher. full kitchen, washer/dryer...). I had a vehicle so this worked very conveniently for me. Parking on the street was never an issue.
Laraine F. August 23, 2013
Thank you so much for having a location so near my daughter. The unit was clean with perfect appointments for a comfortable stay. I will certainly call you again.
Anonymous July 17, 2013
The property was very clean and spacious. Parking was easy. Property management was very easy to contact and replied immediately to any questions and concerns. Since we were there during the beginning of a heatwave it would have been nice to have one additional air conditioning unit in the bedroom. Otherwise everything was fine.
Stephen F. July 31, 2013
We stayed here with 2 other couples. Working with just 1 bathroom was at times a challenge, but we managed. Instructions for everything are posted inside the house, which is in a very clean, quiet and safe neighborhood 20 to 30 minutes from downtown Boston, depending on how and when you drive there. We would stay here again, which is to say that Yes, I do recommend this rental.

This is the second Swank Property we have stayed in. We loved it. Our adult daughter who was with us says she wants to move to the area. The apartment was beautiful and comfortable. We want to stay in all the Swank Properties. They are much nicer than any hotel.
