We had a wonderful time at Kieran and Vincent's house. It was comfortable, clean and well organized and felt like home for the 5 nights we stayed there. They are great hosts and thought of everything that would make our stay even more pleasant. It is clear that they love their house and take great care of it. The neighborhood felt safe and quiet and the town has some nice shops and restaurants in walking distance. The commute into Boston is easy and quick and it was especially fun to ride the trolley that stops only two minutes from their house. At their suggestion we made a trip to the small town of Scituate, a fishing and vacation place on the coast, which was an easy and fun drive from their house. We would definitely rent from them again! Thank you Kieran and Vincent for sharing your house and your beautiful art.

We just loved our extended stay at Kieran's and Vincent's place. During our time there it almost felt like home, especially because we could enjoy the shady backyard on hot days and have occasional BBQs in the evening. The house is comfortable and cozy, and Vincent's paintings are awesome to look at. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet, a tram station is just 2 minutes away by foot, the freeway system 5 minutes by car. There are grocery stores, restaurants, banks, bars etc. within walking distance. The Neponset River Trail is great for exercise, beach access is a 10 minute drive. Kieran and Vincent were great hosts, upon our arrival everything was organized and we were given a tour of the house. They are friendly, responsive, and absolutely easy going. We we would always rent their place again.
