My family rented Mr. Heffernan’s condo for three months (June through August) this past summer (2008) and found it to be delightful. The unit has two bedrooms, one upstairs and one down. It is tastefully furnished, and comfortable. All of our family members stayed in the unit from time to time, two at a time, during the summer. Everything we needed was there. The location could not be better: one block from the Charles Street T station; at the foot of Beacon Hill; adjacent to the Charles River and the park along it; next to the Longfellow Bridge to Cambridge; and at the end of Charles Street with its shops and restaurants, only a few blocks from the Commons and the Public Garden. Everything we needed was within walking distance or an easy T ride. There is a bed and breakfast on the same block, which we used when all of us were in town at the same time or guests needed accommodations. Mr. Heffernan was a thoughtful, accessible and responsive landlord. The rent was reasonable.
