STRB Collaborates with Local Organizations and Businesses

 

At Short Term Rentals Boston (STRB), we strive to be a leader in  the furnished and short-term housing industry here in Boston. In concert with what we do (furnished housing), we place a high value on, among other things, social responsibility and community-minded initiatives. One example of how our business and our values intersect is in promoting economic development in the city of Boston. As a company we are able to further this cause by providing local organizations and businesses with access to much needed furnished housing. Whether we’re hosting members of a multi-national fellowship program in our Quarters™ properties or providing cost-effective housing solutions for start-ups and emerging businesses, we’re proud of the role we play a variety of organizations and clients.

A recent example of this is STRB’s relationship with Our Generation Speaks (OGS): “a fellowship program and incubator where emerging leaders create high-impact ventures. The fellowship establishes a set of innovative enterprises that generate significant social and economic value, while creating a cohort of young Israeli and Palestinian community leaders who cooperate across ethnic and political lines to build shared prosperity within the region.” OGS came to us with the hurdle of providing affordable housing for its fellows, all while being in close proximity to the Mass Challenge offices in Boston’s vibrant and rapidly-developing Seaport District. By working hand-in-hand with the program leaders at OGS, we were able to give their fellows comfortable, well-equipped accommodations, a commute within walking-distance and a taste of what it’s like to live and work in Boston. Here’s what they had to say on their experience:


Scott and the STRB team were fantastic! They made housing 25 summer fellows an absolute breeze. They were able and happy to accommodate all of our special requests, and they were incredibly diligent in prepping and cleaning the units upon our arrival. Our guests had a great stay and our team enjoyed working with STRB from day one to check-out.”

Advantages of a Short Term Rental

Unlike hotels where you might feel like a guest at all times, you do have the opportunity to live in the comfort of your own temporary, furnished home, with a private kitchen, bath, and rooms to relax in while you are visiting Boston. Also, short term rentals save money. Flexible, furnished units are much more cost-effective than hotels and allow you to spend less on laundry service, dining out, and other things that don’t come included with accommodations like a hotel, motel or Holiday Inn (say what?). Fully equipped kitchens are a standard amenity included in all of our listings. This has great appeal when you factor in specific dietary requirements or a family with small children in temporary accommodation looking for a more permanent abode.

Short term apartments give you more space and privacy, as well as providing a “home away from home” feel that allow for a more intimate, local experience. Particularly for those working away from the office for extended durations, the addition of a private kitchen and living room is a significant benefit, offering room to both relax and work as required. Renting a two or three-bedroom apartment provides more space for a group or family than a hotel room, giving more freedom to those sharing the space. In addition, if family or friends visit, there are sofa beds to accommodate them at no extra charge – a service for which hotel guests find themselves incurring additional charges.

Between the money savings and the unique amenities that you will find, short term apartment rentals have it all. Whether you are visiting for a few weeks, or months at a time, you can find plenty of accommodations to suit your needs and give you the space that you are searching for. There is nothing more enjoyable than having the space to spread out and relax. Having the ability to live like you’re at home when you’re miles away makes everything easier.
