25 Bay State
Reviewed by: David M. recommends this property.
Stayed for 24 days in June, 2016
My wife and I lived at 25 Bay State for a month as I was in Boston to teach a summer school class and oversee 11 college students in a community service immersion program. This is the perfect rental - a designer decorated, high quality apartment with a perfect location for someone who wants to enjoy Boston, have quick access to the T, and be in a quiet beautiful neighborhood.

Great place
A guest from Lake Oswego, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012
This rental is convenient for getting around Boston, in a great part of town, and has a nice view over the Charles. It is roomy and comfortable. We thoroughly enhoyed our stay there. The dining room table is very wobbly and should be replaced. The refrigerator door does not close very well and we found it open a few times. Everything else was perfect.

Great Place for Red Sox Fans!
Cindy C. from Oneida, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012
We found this apartment to be perfect for our family vacation to catch a baseball game. The neighborhood was lovely and we had an easy walk to the stadium. This experience was far nicer then a hotel stay. We hope to return for a longer visit to enjoy more of Boston.

Baseball fans this is the place to stay!
A guest from Grimsby, Ontario recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012
This property is a great location close to public transport and within walking distance to Fenway. Nice decor and a great view of the Charles River.Don't forget your hand and bath soap, and hair dryer.They are not supplied. A small area orientation package regarding how to get around the area close to the property in the unit would assist making this rental property a welcoming place to stay and return to.

SWANK PROPERTIES-BAY STATE
A guest from BRISTOL, AVON does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012
WE STAYED AT BAY STATE PROPERTY IN BOSTON WHICH WAS A NICE 2BEDROOM CONDO BUT COULD ONLY SLEEP 4 COMFORTABLY AND NOT 5 AS ADVERTISED. DESPITE COUPLE OF EMAILS/TEXTS TO THE MANAGEMENT COMPANY I DID NOT GET ANY RESPONSE WRT EXTRA BED OR BEDDING. I BOOKED THE CONDO 4 MONTHS AHEAD OF TIME AND THE CONFIRMATORY EMAIL STATED THAT ACCESS CODE AND INSTRUCTIONS WOULD BE SENT A WEEK AHEAD. DESPITE MULTIPLE EMAILS AND PHONE CALLS I ONLY RECEIVED AN EMAIL 2 DAYS BEFORE ARRIVAL TO BOSTON STATING THAT WE WERE BEING MOVED TO A HOTEL FOR ONE NIGHT AND THEN COULD HAVE ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY FOR 2 NIGHTS. HOWEVER WHEN I INITIALLY ASKED WHETHER I COULD CHANGE THE BOOKING TO TWO NIGHTS THIS WAS DECLINED.THE PROPERTY ITSELF WAS CLEAN BUT WE WERE APPALLED BY THE UNPROFESSIONALISM OF THE MANAGEMENT COMPANY

Awesome
A guest from Boca Raton, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012
This rental was awesome. We had no problems with the rental, it was very clean, plenty of TP (unlike the other reviews) and the air condition was refreshing with the heat index over 95. Lance was very prompt and had an answer when I texted him with a question(s). We will be staying at this rental for future visits.

When things break...
Jennifer C. from Lilburn, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012
First let me say that the apartment is in an excellent location and very nice on the inside. We arrived on Monday and found it was very hot. We called lance and he came to check the air. It was broken, and not fixed until Friday. In the meantime we had to open windows facing the street. There are no fans in the house and no screens in the bedroom windows. Between the noise, heat, and bugs we did not sleep well for the first four nights we were there.The cleaning service left a load of damp towels and sheets in the dryer. Bring your own toilet paper, lance did bring some when he came to check the air, but there was half of a roll when we arrived, and it costs a fortune in Boston!

Great Stay in Boston
A guest from Ceres, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in May, 2012
We were very pleased with the Bay State apartment. It was a great location, very centralized and close to the subway station. The only small issues we had was the dining table appears to be about to break and was very wobbly. There was no additional toilet paper in the entire place and when we arrived most of the towels were crammed into the dryer along with 2 sets of sheets - not sure if that was the prior residents doing or the cleaning crew. I would rent this apartment again and would recommend to anyone looking for a place in the Back Bay area.

Beautiful, Clean, Great Location
A guest from Auburn, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012
We loved our stay. We stay at home rentals all the time and this was probably the best. Lots of mirrors which helps because we had 5 people getting ready for graduation. Close to Fenway, subway and restaurants. Beautiful street and view of the river. In excellent condition. We will be back!

Fabulous Property and Location
Sharon S. from Petaluma, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012
The property was fabulous. Very clean, great view. Easy access to the T. I would recommend including directions from the airport on public transportation, to the correct T stop, to the property. Our family fit great in the space. Loved that there was 1 1/2 bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable. Should we ever have the occasion to visit Boston again, we would definitely want to stay in this property.

The condo was much more than we expected -- spacious, light, comfortable a beautiful view of the river and the MIT campus. The location was ideal for walking and taking the T. We stayed here with another couple so having the second half bath was very convenient. We'll be back!

The Boston Experience
Reviewed by: Julie B. recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012
The apartment was spacious and airy. Very well presented and spotlessly clean. The view from the window of the Charles River is amazing. The odds and ends in the kitchen cupboards were much appreciated ? cooking oil, salt etc. The bedrooms are large with lots of storage. The beds were the best we have ever had in a rental. The lounge area was fantastic, plenty of room to relax and of course a large TV for the lads to watch their sport! We made use of the washer and dryer, which was a bonus. The location was far better than we could have hoped for, so convenient for everything. We really loved this apartment and would recommend it without hesitation.Our only observations, which would have enhanced the apartment even more, would have been ? a dining table which didn?t wobble! We sat down to eat and the table top rocked so much we had to remove our drinks? a kettle, as us British like our cups of tea and boiling water in a pan was a bit of a pain? a hairdryer in the bedroom? and finally an ironing board. The iron was supplied but no ironing boardOverall we had a fantastic time in Boston and would recommend Boston and this apartment to anyone

Amazing location and comfortable apartment
Ruben G. from Toronto, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in March, 2012
We've rented a number of apartments in Boston, and this was by far the best: most professional, most spacious, best location, and best deal (included parking!). The only issue was that the uneven floor in the smaller bedroom caused the head of the bed to be lower than the feet, which made it hard to sleep. Easily solved with added pads to the feet by the head. Otherwise, a great place. Lance was efficient, professional, and responsive. We would most certainly come back when we return to Boston! Thanks Lance!
