Fantastic location
Large flat with fabulous views
Ekaterina S. Oct 2018
Oh, it was amazing! Thank’s a lot! The apartment and location, is beautiful! I’ll recommend this place for my friend, and if I’ll coming in Boston anytime, I’ll stay already there. Thank you.
Tatiana S. Oct 2018
Beautiful place, light and clean (!!), big enough for a small family of 3. The kitchen has everything if you wanna cook something by yourself (whole foods market is in a walking distance). Great location, nice (and pretty quiet) neighborhood.
Diane U. Oct 2018
Was very nice, however only one towel was supplied which wasn’t so great for 2 people for 2 nights, ?
Liana M. Sep 2018
Apartamento confortable, limpieza, artefactos y ubicación excelente.
Dominic S. Aug 2018
It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a surprisingly quiet building and very welcoming at the end of the day, with enough room for the two of us and our two teenage boys. We used the swimming pool every day, which also had a pool table. The view from our apartment was amazing, and the balcony was a nice feature. The location was ideal too, a quick walk to CVS, whole foods, and next to a Catholic church. It was also walking distance to many of the sights and public transportation. The pullout couch worked for our 16 year old, but needed an extra blanket for padding to make it comfortable, so it might not work for everyone. Our 13 year old used the cot and said it was comfortable. The bed in the bedroom was very good. We would definitely stay there again.

Our family of 4,,with two teenagers, had the best time in this apartment. View is AMAZING, bedroom very confortable and kitchen has all you need to prepare all you want if you need it. Close to everything. We loved it
Anna N. Jul 2018
Lovely views of the city! The location is perfect for Beacon Hill, the West End, and the North End.
Dorothy K. Jul 2018
We had a great stay @ Bird's Eye View! From dramatic & beautiful window views to comfort & convenience, this condo suited the needs of our family of four very well!
Martine D. Jun 2018
Location is nice, the condo spacious and offers a superbe view of the city. No doubt. Though, the check-in process wasn't easy and equipment is not as high end as expected (from the pictures) : shower curtain was falling apart and A/C in the bedroom wasn't working well. It can't be compared to a 5 star hotel.
Manager response:
The air conditioner is scheduled to be serviced, and the shower curtain has been replaced. We apologize for these issues.
Tammy P. Jun 2018
We liked the view, but there are lots of buildings in it, the noise can be loud at times - you are in the medical district. It was nice to have the tv jazz station on and playing when we arrived - gave it a very nice ambiance. It is great that Whole Foods is just around the corner. The pool was a nice addition. I understand the laundry facility will cost you ALOT to use (we didn't need it). It was VERY helpful that we could pay a little bit extra to have a late check-out. The apartment has the basics (salt & pepper), could use a bit more "hospitality/love", ie, larger coffee pot & filters, extra toilet paper & paper towels, dish soap and a scrubber for the nice stainless steel pans. I would replace the shower curtain hooks and the toilet seat, they don't stay on very well. Otherwise, we had a great stay and would recommend if any of the above is not a problem for you.

We'll equipped apartment with spectacular views over central Boston. Centrally located making walking the Freedom Trail very easy without the need for public transport.
Paola V. Jun 2018
Abbiamo abitato , in tre amici, al 3002, appartamento al 30 piano del 4, Longfellow Place. Posizione perfetta per girare Boston sia a piedi sia in metro. Letto comodo, camera grande e tutto ciò di cui si può aver bisogno in cucina!... unico neo il materasso del divano letto in sala: forse da cambiare per l’utilizzo. Ma questo è stato davvero l’unica pecca di un appartamento perfetto!
Robbie H. May 2018
Great space, great views, enjoyed everything about the space.
Larry H. Apr 2018
Advertisement was spot on. Great, clean condo. Walking distance to almost everything. Reason for 4 stars? Neighbor had dog which barked for several hours for two nights during our stay. Not something you want to hear when trying to sleep.
Hadleigh F. Apr 2018
Great place, so much nicer than a hotel. The feeling of space was great. Comfy beds and a great shower.
Raivo P. Mar 2018
Spacious flat, practical room furnishing, comfortable sofa, armchairs and bed, handy kitchenette, close to city center. Generally, everything was as expected.
Robert V. Dec 2017
The view is everything it is advertised to be.. You have not only city views but you also have water views. I can not imagine a better view in the whole city of Boston. The bed was amazing on how it slept and the apartment had everything you could possibly want in a vacation spot. Access is perfect to everything in the City. Parking is costly but if you do not have to use a rental car it is not a concern. I would highly recommend this location to anyone who wants a beautiful place to stay while visiting Boston.
Steven I. Nov 2017
No thanks Vacasa
Laura H. Oct 2017
We loved the location of this property. We found it easy to access all the different areas of downtown Boston from this location. The views were breathtaking. The apartment was large and very comfortable. Would highly recommend this property.
Phil N. Oct 2017
Fabulous Condo. Close to everything
Chris L. Oct 2017
Nice apartment in a great location. Plenty of space, great views . Try the Tip Top Lounge on Cambridge St!
Vicki S. Oct 2017
Beautiful view and easy to get to all the main attractions. Would stay here again!
Mary S. Sep 2017
The unit was very nicely decorated, clean, and had fantastic views.
Greg L. Sep 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this spacious unit. Beautiful views from the patio and also from the living room picture window. The "T" is just a short walk away, so we used it to get everywhere. The kitchen was a nice size and it was fully stocked with essential cookware and dining ware. We recommend this property highly.
Tyler H. Sep 2017
Had an amazing time in Boston, the location was absolutely perfect.
Rajiv M. Sep 2017
Overall, this apartment was in a good location - not too far from the T or Whole Foods. The decor was nice and simple. The bedding wasn't very comfortable, and the place could use more linens and softer pillows. Also, if you like to cook, the kitchen is bare bones. Not much in the way of cookware. You can get by, but there isn't even a blender. The bathroom is quite tiny, and it would benefit from a glass door on the shower instead of a flimsy shower curtain. I gave it a good score (4 stars) mostly for the location.
Courtney B. Sep 2017
Amazing view and modern furnishings with everything we needed.
Anne K. Sep 2017
The apartment suited our purpose but thought it would be a little closer to the city. On the plus side, it was spacious with good views. It was close to a good supermarket but between stations so a bit of a walk at the end of a hot day.
Reasonably well equipped but would have liked a washing machine in unit.
Wi-fi was very problematic. The system was inadequate and wi-fi only worked in the bedroom which was very frustrating when you wanted to use it in the living room.
Manager response:
We hope this guest had a wonderful time in the unit. The washer and dryer provided are shared in the lower level of the tower. The home is located on the west end of Boston and is only three blocks from the train. The property manager has inspected the WiFi so he can fix any issues that might be there. Thanks!
Vivian T. Aug 2017
Apartment has great views of Charles and Bridge. North End, Beacon Hill, Aquarium, Faneuil Hall and new Waterfront green are all within walking distance. Bowdoin Blueline T stop 1 1/2 blocks away. Do not bring a car--quite easy to explore by foot and T. Only has 1king bed and a folding cot in closet so best for a couple, with 1small lightweight kid at most. Living room furniture not comfortable for sleeping. Building has outdoor pool with daytime hours--we did not use it as we were always out. Overall a very convenient location and reasonably comfortable and clean. Towels could have been cleaner and rooms would benefit from deodorizer.
Mark R. Aug 2017
The unit has a great location only a couple of blocks from a blue line T stop. It was easy to walk to restaurants, grocery store, and nearby parking. The views are amazing. A great spot to sit and watch the sunset. The unit was very well furnished and very clean. This is a great place to stay and we would recommend to anyone.
Mark S. Jul 2017
My wife and I enjoyed watching the 4th fireworks from this vantage point so much in 2016 we booked this unit for 2017 within a month of returning home to Atlanta. It's a wonderful unit. With an OUTSTANDING view of back bay Boston and Cambridge. There is a Whole Foods grocery within easy walking distance, as is most else. We feel a car is almost a liability in Boston and we rented one for just a single day. We can't recommend this unit (in summer mind you!) more.
Donna G. Jul 2017
location was perfect and it was great to be able to go around the corner to the great whole foods market and chill at home for dinner after being out all day
Ava P. Jun 2017
This is a spacious, immaculate property with access to all parts of the city by foot or mass transit. Highly recommended.
Steve G. Jun 2017
Great spot for an apartment in Boston. Incredible views and close to everything.
Julie J. May 2017
Location and views are both excellent. Whole Foods and CVS are a short walk out the back door. Bathroom appears smaller than actual in photos. Upgraded medicine cabinet doubles the countertop space. No negatives.
Susan M. May 2017
great location, beautiful view spacious one bedroom
Hope H. May 2017
The property was in a great location and very spacious. Everything was clean.
There were a couple minor maintenance issues and some conflicting information about the checkout procedures.
Allison H. May 2017
This was a great apartment and was centrally located, very clean, and spacious with fantastic view from the balcony
John B. Apr 2017
All great here apartment very good location good size and well kept perfect!!!
Tom H. Mar 2017
The facility was clean, comfortable, and well furnished.
Leah J. Jan 2017
The place is spectacular! Lots of room to spread out and relax -- comfortable bed, well-equipped kitchen, and comfy living room with fireplace. The views from this 30th floor corner unit are really terrific. From the living room you look out over the Charles River and famous Citgo sign. The bedroom window has a spectacular view of the Zakim Bridge, Charlestown Harbor, USS Constitution, North End, etc. You're a short walk to everything. There is a Whole Foods next door to stock up for your stay. The North End is a short 10 minute walk as is Boston Common, the Public Garden, Newbury Street, etc. Can't wait for our next visit!
Dane H. Jan 2017
We were here because it was close to Mass General Hospital. My husband was in for surgery and I never felt uneasy walking back and forth alone, even at night. Having Whole Foods around the corner was a plus. One of the days my son and I walked down to the Public Market, through the North End, checked on the seals outside the Aquarium, watched them prepping the temporary skating area outside Government Center, walked through Quincy Market. We covered over 5 1/2 miles. It was wonderful! It didn't hurt that it got up to 60 degrees (in January) that day.
The birds eye views from two sides of the apartment were spectacular - the binoculars were a nice touch.
Clean, spare, and comfortable. We hope to go back.
