SECURITY DEPOSIT or RENTAL DAMAGE PROTECTION
======================================================
A $50 Rental Damage Protection insurance policy has been included in lieu of a traditional $500 security deposit. This $50 insurance policy provides more cost effective damage protection in most cases. Guests may request to forgo the insurance, and will be charged the $500 security deposit upon booking.

This Rental Damage plan covers unintentional damages to the rental unit interior that occur during your stay, provided they are disclosed to management prior to check-out. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of $3,000. You will still be responsible for any damages that exceed $3,000 or are not covered under the Plan and associated damages will be charged to the credit card on file. If you damage the real or personal property assigned to your rental accommodation during the trip, the Insurer will reimburse the lesser of the cost of repairs or the Actual Cash Value of the property, up to $3,000. Certain terms and conditions apply. Full details of the Vacation Rental Damage coverage are contained in the Description of Coverage or Insurance Policy. By submitting payment for this plan, you authorize and request CSA Travel Protection and Insurance Services to pay directly the Property Manager any amount payable under the terms and conditions of the Vacation Rental Damage. Please contact the Property Manager directly if you do not wish to participate in this plan or assignment. The Rental Damage Protection must be purchased, or alternate security deposit arrangements made, before the Property Manager will confirm a booking.

Information on this Damage Protection plan can be found at the links below.

Damage Protection Summary:
Damage Protection Policy:

In the event that damages exceed $3,000 or the damage was not reported to management prior to check out, guest agrees to compensate the Property Manager for this damage. This payment may be made by the credit card on file or by other legal means of collection.


CANCELLATION POLICY
====================
We highly recommend that guests purchase travel insurance if cancellation issues are a concern.

Either party may cancel a reservation with written notice if provided more than 60 days prior to arrival. If guest notification is received more than 60 days prior to arrival, the Property Manager will refund all deposits paid to date, less a $100 cancellation fee. Refunds will be issued to the credit card or bank account used to pay the deposit.

If guest notification is received less than 60 days, but more than 30 days prior to arrival, the Property Manager will refund 50% of the deposits paid to date, less a $100 cancellation fee. Refunds will be issued to the credit card or bank account used to pay the deposit.

If guest cancels a reservation within 30 days of arrival, the Property Manager will NOT provide a refund. However, if travel insurance is purchased, insurance reimburses the guest directly for pre-paid, non-refundable deposits as described in the “Travel Insurance” section below.

Property manager will not cancel a reservation with less than 60 days notice unless the property reserved becomes unavailable due to property sale, fire, mandatory evacuation, eminent domain, construction delays, lack of utilities, unexpected scheduling circumstances, or acts of nature. the Property Manager will make reasonable efforts to assist guest in finding alternative accommodations and upon notification of cancellation, guest may request a full refund or to have the paid balance applied to available alternative accommodations.

Again, we highly recommend that guests purchase travel insurance if cancellation issues are a concern. Please read the “Travel Insurance” section below for the many benefits of the insurance policy.


TRAVEL INSURANCE
=================
Guests who choose travel insurance will have CSA Guest Protect Vacation Rental Insurance included in the reservation and it will be part of the initial deposit. This insurance adds just 6.95% to the reservation price but reimburses the guest for pre-paid, non-refundable deposits if they must cancel the trip due to sudden illness in the family, loss of employment or other covered reasons. CSA Guest Protect also provides significant benefits during the vacation such as reimbursement for expenses due to lost luggage, travel delays, medical illness, and identity theft. In addition it offers 24hour Emergency Services and On Demand Medical services during the trip. The Property Manager recommends that our guests consider purchasing this valuable coverage to safeguard the investment in their vacation.

Boston trip The house we stayed in was perfectly located. We walked to the T station and rrose into town everyday without any problem. The neighborhood is very quiet. I was a little surprised about a few small things that were broke in the unit since it is owned by a company. No curtain in the bathroom/shower, back door would not lock, knob on the stove broke and door handle to the pantry broke. Just small things. But overall, we enjoyed our stay. Beds were very comfortable.

Great location Property is well located within walking distance of railway and shopping. The view is amazing and the street is quiet and peaceful. Only comment for management is when weather turns cold, provide adequate warm bedding and turn on the heating prior to guest arrival - they were responsive to our request to remedy these problems.

Great location, awesome view, and comfortable, but a bit lacking Check in and out was smooth and easy. Please note there are two flights of stairs that are quite steep to get to the main level. Beds were comfortable but we could have used a spare blanket or two as it was cold during our stay. The kitchen was well equipped. But there were several dead light bulbs that made the kitchen/dining area tough to cook in at night. Finally, the CO detector went off two nights in a row. Quite unnerving, but we were told the apartment had electric heat so there was nothing to worry about.

Somewhat Wonderfull Stay We stayed here for 1 night while visiting Boston for a birthday and was very nice. The pictures make it seem like your renting the whole house but its really just the third floor and a small room on second floor. Everything was clean and nice the only problem we had was the alarm system. Every-time we would walk down the hall it started beeping loud and a voice you could not understand started coming from it yelling. It also happened during the night when we were sleeping. Could not diagnose the problem as we couldn't understand what it was saying. Overall great stay though.<br/><br/>

Visit to Boston This was a great place. Maybe I missed it in the description, but the amount of stairs and narrowness of the stairway could be hilighted more. It was not a problem, but it could be for some people. Ample sleeping alternatives for the six of us. An easy drive into Boston proper. A cellphone is required to accomplish check in and check out.

sky view We absolutely loved staying in this house! It has so much character and I'm sure history as well. I loved the view from the balcony off of the kitchen. Sunrises were beautiful and the view of the city when it snowed was gorgeous! Keep in mind there are a lot of stairs but unless you're going to be coming and going all day long, they're not a problem. There was someone staying in the unit below us for a couple of days and though they weren't louder than they should have been, at night when they were in their unit we could hear all their loud laughter and loud talking (it sounded like there were more than one couple in the unit). That being said, I'm sure they could probably hear every step we took in our unit as the floors are understandably very creaky due to the age of the home, but that just gives it it's character. The bathroom is HUGE and there's also a washer and dryer which is a great added plus, especially if you're staying a week or more like we did. It's also only about 6 miles from Logan Airport which is perfect and close to the subway, as well. We would definitely stay there again. Response from Swank Properties; Tuesday, May 3, 2016 We appreciate the in depth feedback, Christine! Thanks so much for staying with Swank Properties!

Boston Family Vacation We took my parents and son to Boston for a week long vacation over the 4th of July holiday. We needed a 3 bedroom place that was convenient to get to the city. This property could not have been better. We had two spacious rooms for my wife and I and parents. The third bedroom was perfect for a 12 year old. We were less than 10 blocks away from the T which got us in town in less than 10 minutes. The kitchen was great. Laundry in the house was a bonus. A lot of steps to get upstairs but they were safe and manageable. We would prefer to stay here again if available. The best part was how easy it was to check in and check out. The smart phone app looks great however I did not have one. This was no issue. I was contacted and given the code to the lock to enter. I emailed that I arrived and emailed that we left. That was it. Too easy. Response from Swank Properties; Tuesday, July 26, 2016 We would love to have you back, Jed! So glad you had a great experience!

Locked out for an hour, management never responded The rental itself was fine but we were very dissatisfied with the management company. Our family (including 2 small children) returned to the rental after a full day in the city to find that the electronic lock was malfunctioning. I called the emergency number and was told by the attendant that I should receive a call within 20 min. I called back 30 min later and was told all she could do was send a message to the maintenance person. I called back 15 min after that demanding the number to the maintenance dept and was told there was no number and nothing she could do. In desperation, I sent an email through their app hoping to reach someone so we could get inside. Within 5 min the maintenance man called and had given me the code to the keybox. He said he saw my email but never got any messages from the attendant. I sent an email the next day (since apparently that is the best way to reach them) detailing what happened, and never received any reply. This is odd to me since every other email I have sent to them was answered quite fast. No one seemed bothered by the fact that my family was stuck outside for an hour until 9pm. I wouldn't stay here again or recommend this company to anyone. Response from Swank Properties; Monday, August 29, 2016 This was unfortunate. There was a bit of a miscommunication between staff and the answering service that led to the 45 minute lock out being longer than it could have been. Our electronic locks are super secure but this one did have an issue so we provided the guest with the code for the backup key and they promptly gained entry. We could not provide a full refund to the guest as demanded so they chose to write a bit of a misleading review. We have altered our after hours procedure to ensure that we can be reached without the issue that we had in this case. Regardless, we are disappointed that the lock had an issue and the guests were delayed in gaining entry.

Double cleaning fee which is hidden fee When I finished ordering, the list of payment shows that there is a cleaning fee. That's normal. I was absolutely agree with this payment. After we checked out, we put everything like the first day we came in, cleaned out the garbage, and follow their instruction. Then on the check out day, it charged me another "clean requirement fee"! When I asked what is this about, the answer was very unclear. What do you mean by " a little mistakes"? The only thing I felt very regret is that I didn't take a picture before I left the house. Response from Swank Properties; Tuesday, October 18, 2016 Unfortunately, this group left the apartment in dismal condition and were charged an "excess" cleaning fee. A fee that we've only charged twice over the last year. Our other hundreds of guests have left the units as requested and have done so with kindness and joy. Sadly, this group was not of that caliber.

The Irish pub - Harp and Bard serves a good meal. Also a folder with services such as taxi numbers would have been helpful too.<br/>The apartment is only 10 minutes walk to the Savin Hill T station and the trip into Boston centre at the most 15 minutes away. We felt quite safe walking back to the apartment from the T station at night.<br/>The app for mobiles providing information was helpful but it would be great to have more personalised information about the general location. We were unable to print the Welcome Pack that was sent through as we were already travelling so appreciated the good wifi available at the property.<br/>We found some minor repairs needed and sent them through to the property managers who acknowledged the information and our feedback. We appreciated this and hope they take up some of our suggestions as Sky View is a lovely place to stay.<br/>The departure requirements to advise you have left the property are understandable but as our email was not allowing us to send emails reliably it did cause us some concerns about complying with this request within the time frame. I appreciated that they understood my communication problems and let me send through an early email to confirm our departure time.

Great stay in Boston This property was very nice. Just felt like it gave us a good taste of New England. The neighborhood was fun to stay in and see all that style of homes around. The home was older, but newly remodeled, so had great updated appliances, furniture, etc. The view was incredible. The location wasn't bad, but at the end of a long day walking around Boston, that half mile walk up hill from the T-station was daunting sometimes. Other than that-it was great. Well taken care of. Wonderful experience with everything from the booking process to the check-out. Would stay there again if we ever go to Boston. Definitely beats a hotel hands down! Highly recommend to any other traveler.

Fantastic stay with a fantastic view As company members of Phantom of the Opera National Tour, we spend much of our time in hotel along the tour. In cases where we have a slightly longer stay in a city, like a month, we try and find housing to make the experience more like a home and have a base with a kitchen and more amenities. In the case of the Sky View home it was everything we wanted it to be. 3 of us were extremely comfortable and found that the rental was clean, well furnished, very comfortable and the perfect location, just outside the city of Boston, to make a short commute everyday. From the first time we reached out Lance was awesome and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. If you are looking for a place to stay with a short walk to the T stop and breath taking views, look no further! This property can't be beat.

First time visitors to Boston and so lucky we found Sky View on Jones Hill! The space was perfect for our group of 5 to rest comfortably, and the location couldn't be better. We were a ten minute walk to the T line, and passed many cute restaurants and shops on our walk there every day. Would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a genuine Boston experience

The condo was in a good location and has a magnificent view of the city. The open floor plan is very spacious but yet set up to feel cozy and intimate. The bedrooms are very big and plenty of closet space. The bathroom is huge. There were no blankets at the time of arrival. We requested some through the app and were brought within a couple of hours. The concern was the bathtub. There were no slip guards and a couple of people did slip. There are a lot of stairs so this may be a concern for those who may not be as mobile. Over all the service, location and experience was above and beyond expectations

The property was conveniently located to the T. It was a nice apt and worked well for us. It was very clean, however, it needed some general maintence. The manager was great, he was very responsive and very helpful.

We were very satisfied with our stay at your rental. Noticing the tips for writing reviews, I think the property description was a little misleading. The dining table in the photo seats 6 with 6 chairs - actually it is a round table with 4 chairs (we had 6 people in our party). Also advertised was a third bedroom with twin beds when it was actually a trundle bed which we didn't find out until the next day when we called for more bedding. The property was neat and clean and management was right there when we needed the bedding. We were very satisfied with the property and will certainly look to that when we are in Boston again.

Our location was wonderful with parking. The 3rd bedroom was misleading and had no air. We had to spend 50.00 for a big fan. Food packages had holes and granola bars partially eaten looks like mice. Would not rent again, ad not what it seems.

The place is large and accommodated 8 guests even with just one bathroom. the down sides: the tub had mold on the soap holder (ick), the tub leaked into the floor below. It was impossible to reach the Property management team and the solution was to leave a bucket in the hallway the entire stay.

It was a little tough with only 1 bathroom but the upside is the bathroom was very spacious. The bottom floor bedroom is not ideal for 2 adults but did work in a pinch. The views that you work for going up the hill were beautiful. The T was close enough but coming back after a night of drinking make that hill a little more tough. Neighbors were nice. The management company was quick to answer any questions.

It took us a bit to get used to "city apartment living" vs. a hotel, but in the end we were glad we stayed at the Sky View Condo. Furniture was all comfortable and check in/out was easy. Easy walk to subway to access Boston, and was so great to have own parking spot for the couple of days we did rent a car! A few amenities/needs we're needed upon arrival (extra bedding, laundry soap) but response when I emailed the management company was super fast and we had what we needed by the next morning. Neighbors downstairs were a bit noisy making lower bedroom unusable one night, but could usually drown out noise w/ air conditioners! View of city from living area was beautiful and neighborhood was very friendly. Thank you!

We spent only 2 nights here after 4 nights in New York...and wish we had spent more time in Boston. This is a high class apartment with plenty of space, and a wonderful elevated view across to the city. In the early mornings you can sit on the steps on the small terrace and take your coffee, or with a glass of wine in the evening. Neighborhood is typical Boston and is 10 minutes walk to the metro, so getting to Boston without car is easy. <br/>Check in / out is simple via the App, and the appartment is very well equipped, and has washing machine and drier which is useful to keep the suitcase contents under control..<br/>Only small problem was with the mix of the adolescents 3 boys 1 girl and my partner and I, we did not have sufficient bed linen for the 2 canopies.

As company members of Phantom of the Opera National Tour, we spend much of our time in hotel along the tour. In cases where we have a slightly longer stay in a city, like a month, we try and find housing to make the experience more like a home and have a base with a kitchen and more amenities. In the case of the Sky View home it was everything we wanted it to be. 3 of us were extremely comfortable and found that the rental was clean, well furnished, very comfortable and the perfect location, just outside the city of Boston, to make a short commute everyday. From the first time we reached out Lance was awesome and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. If you are looking for a place to stay with a short walk to the T stop and breath taking views, look no further! This property can't be beat.

Wonderful view! And spacy rooms in a beautyful villa! One little heavy thing over the bathtub fell on the toes of one of us, it should be refixed on the wall. two more dishes and sheets/towels would be convenient for 6 people, but we came along. We tried calling only once and reached an answering machine, so we can´t judge the staff.

The unit was nicely located: near enough to downtown but still very much in a neighborhood. A couple things in the unit were not in perfect repair: the faucet on the tub was very looose and almost came off, we had to push it back on, qnd it still was not quite right. The door to the outside hall had no lock, only a latch, so it was somewhat concerning with kids in that room. The back porch was very unstable, Do not go on the back stairs. But I really did enjoy the unit. It was comfortable and great hard wood and Swank communicated very well. Those items were small, and I would absolutely rent thwre again.

This property was very nice. Just felt like it gave us a good taste of New England. The neighborhood was fun to stay in and see all that style of homes around. The home was older, but newly remodeled, so had great updated appliances, furniture, etc. The view was incredible. The location wasn't bad, but at the end of a long day walking around Boston, that half mile walk up hill from the T-station was daunting sometimes. Other than that-it was great. Well taken care of. Wonderful experience with everything from the booking process to the check-out. Would stay there again if we ever go to Boston. Definitely beats a hotel hands down! Highly recommend to any other traveler.

From the first enquiry with Swank Properties, I received prompt courteous service and good information about the property. The apartment was accurately represented and we had a great stay. Do be aware that the stairs are very steep - so getting our heavy luggage up to the third floor was doable but heavy work.<br/>Being from Australia and having no local knowledge we suggest that the property have some local information such as closest grocery store, suggestions where to eat and how to get there in foot. The Irish pub - Harp and Bard serves a good meal. Also a folder with services such as taxi numbers would have been helpful too.<br/>The apartment is only 10 minutes walk to the Savin Hill T station and the trip into Boston centre at the most 15 minutes away. We felt quite safe walking back to the apartment from the T station at night.<br/>The app for mobiles providing information was helpful but it would be great to have more personalised information about the general location.

Lovely place for a family (of five) to explore the whole of Boston. The on-drive car parking was very helpful and travelling into the city via the "T" was perfect - even for the uninitiated! The quality of accommodation was excellent and the views across the city superb. (Access to the property via timed emails on the days of arrival and departure could be slightly too professional for those less IT literate.)

Nicely upgraded apartment that met the needs of our family of 4 (2 adult children) very well. Spacious and comfortable. Lance was very responsive in dropping off the extra set of sheets we needed. Having the washer/dryer in the unit was awesome and allowed us to pack much lighter as we could easily do laundry. If you are planning to use the subway the walk is mostly uphill so be aware and there are quite a few stairs in the house to get from the front door to the living room. I would definitely stay here again if I was in Boston with my family. So much better than a hotel room for adults.

We have been staying at Sky View for five days while we were on holiday with the whole family (parents, three adult daughters). We were surprised by the spacious and luxurious apartment, with great view on the skyline of Boston city. It was not only spacious, but is was clean and very well equipped. The entry instructions were clear and simple. We haven't met Lance, but communication was easy and prompt. The bath tub had a dripping tap which could not be fixed while we were there which was a pity because of the water spillage, but for the rest everything was perfect!
