    Additional Location Information
    In 1870, when Dorchester itself was annexed to Boston, it was still a rural community of 12,000 residents. But in that same year came railroad access and ever-increasing residential and commercial development that began to transform what had been essentially an agricultural area. Upper-class Yankees and Irish built one- and two-family Victorian homes on Savin Hill and Jones Hill. At the junction of five streetcar lines, Uphams Corner on Jones Hill became Dorchester’s marketplace. By 1920, with new streetcar and municipal water lines supporting growth, the population climbed to 150,000. Today, the renewed interest in classic city living has brought a renaissance to Jones Hill due to its easy access to downtown, Victorian architecture and diverse population. A truly Boston neighborhood, Jones Hill is one of the finest for long-time residents and visitors alike.

Easy to get anywhere with the "T" a half block away. Boston Museum of Art one stop away, takes two days and the ticket allows that. Close to neighborhood bars and restaurants. taxis take 15 minutes to pick up; minimum $10 fare with tip to nicer restaurants. There is a pool and laundry for longer stays. The apartment has everything you would need to "move in" for your trip including a Keurig with coffee! more

We got moved to this apartment as the one we had originally booked became unavailable, however we were very grateful the owners were able to relocate us within 2 weeks of arrival. The apartment itself was clean with modern decoration. The layout of the living room is different to the photo the sofa (futon) is now on the other wall and the TV is facing it. The kitchen was well equipped and there seemed to be plenty of cutlery and crockery.
The 2 main bedrooms are very large and have plenty of room for luggage and getting around. The third room is a second living room halfway up to the stairs to the apartment and is just a futon. We were travelling as 3 adult couples, so it was a bit awkward trying to decide who would take the futon room (luckily one couple was only staying for 2 of the 4 nights).
Getting into the property was very easy, and the codes and instructions provided via the owner we very thorough. The owners also responded to any communications quickly and...
