Recent Greater Boston reviews

  • Great property in prime Back Bay location

    "I stayed in this condo for five days and it was PERFECT. The location cannot be beat. Anything you need is right around the corner at the friendly neighborhood market or CVS. The owner was very attentive. I couldn't figure out the TV and he was over in 15 minutes to show me what I needed to do. The kitchen has all brand new appliances and is immaculate (and I kept it that way by not cooking!) However, if you want to cook, everything you need is there. There is also and iron and ironing board, blow dryer and all the comforts from home. Additionally, there is a ton of closet space and drawer space. I would not hesitate for a moment to come back to this very same property and I hope to in the future!"

  • LOVED "my little apartment" in Boston!

    "One of the best parts of our 6-night stay in Boston was this darling little apartment on Hanover street. My son who lives in Boston said, "Mom, how did you find such a great place on the most exciting street in Boston?" My elderly parents and I stayed here, and while the small couch in the living room was not the largest for sleeping - I was completely comfortable, and am a 5' 3" 56 year old woman; be fore-warned there are many stairs - but my parents did just fine. There was GREAT closet space in the upstairs bedroom. The bathroom was extremely clean. Absolutely loved the charming kitchen. Made our coffee every morning and I went out early and got fresh hot pastries from Modern Pastry down the street for breakfast. (You will not believe the lines outside this place and Mike's Pastry across the street at 10-11PM each night - and you will be patting yourself on the back that you don't have to stand in them because you live here and can always come back.) It was wonderful to be able to look out the front door and down the street to choose whatever Italian restaurant we wanted for the evening. And in the morning a short walk led to the harbor. With fresh hot coffee in hand, I enjoyed beautiful sunrises each morning. AND this apartment is a very short walk to the ferry where you can catch a $3 harbor ride over to the USS Constitution. It is a busy street and the building holds full-time tenants who can be quite rowdy on weekend nights - but that only led to a sense of immersing ourselves in the excitement of the city. And all the neighbors were so kind, including the firemen at the station across the street. PLUS, it is not a very far walk up to Quincy Market and Boston Common. Check-in was amazingly simple, and although I was apprehensive about renting in this manner, Dror followed through on every single detail. I almost hate to write such a great review, because I sure want "my little apartment" available for my next trip to Boston! Hope everyone will treat the property with respect so the cost can stay as reasonable as possible. You're just gonna love it!"

  • Wonderful apartment in great location

    "We couldn't have asked for a better location or a more darling apartment for our 4 night stay in Boston. Every detail was anticipated down to the coffee for breakfast. We have found that sometimes older apartments are lacking somewhere but not this one! Usually it's the shower that isn't up to par but not this one. Plenty of hot water. We so appreciated the restaurant recommendations and all of the little cards throughout the apartment that answered any question we might have had. We would definitely recommend it to our friends!"

  • Perfect for a Large Group, Very Clean!

    "We just stayed at this property for a bachelorette/girls weekend and the house was perfect for our needs. We were a group of 11 and this was more than adequate space for us. This was much more affordable than a hotel. The house was impeccably clean and just as advertised. Jeremy was great to work with, responded very quickly to inquiries and was even nice enough to give us a great dinner recommendation. There were clean sheets and towels just as advertised. In case its not clear from the description there are 2 full bathrooms which we weren't sure about when we read the description. There is a great outdoor space if the weather is nice. Parking was a little tricky since it is all street parking, we had 5-6 cars and were able to manage. Location is good, its about a $20.00 cab ride to the main part of the city. We also walked a little less than a mile to the Sam Adams brewery which was nice. The area surrounding the house is nice with some cute restaurants and shops. All in all a great option when visiting Boston and I could see it working for a variety of group types!"

Greater Boston Travel Tips

Traveling to Boston Vacation Rentals

Boston is a vibrant city and at the heart of America's cultural and historical heritage. There are so many things to see and do in the city that visitors are really spoiled for choice. The beautiful buildings, gardens, museums, art galleries, shops and restaurants provide hours of sightseeing and entertainment.

Boston Logan Airport serves both regional and international airlines. It is one of the country's busiest airports; a huge benefit is that it is conveniently located near the city center. From the airport, you can take a shuttle bus which will connect you with Boston's subway. From there, you can get to just about anywhere in the city. There is also a water shuttle that runs between Logan airport and Rowe's Wharf on Atlantic Avenue in Boston. Taxis and limousines offer private transfers to any point within the city. Amtrak has an extensive rail network connecting Boston with New York and other major towns and cities in the New England area. Scheduled ferries run between Boston and Provincetown, Salem, Hingham, Hull and Quincy. When sightseeing in the city, most people prefer to walk or use the subway stations. Cycling is also a convenient way to get around.

Visitors to Boston

Boston is a beautiful city, home to numerous prestigious universities, museums and art centers. It's often referred to as a city of intellectuals because of the rich heritage of higher learning and culture. People with a keen interest in history, art and culture will find Boston fascinating. You can spend hours browsing through the various museum exhibits, art galleries and libraries. It's a place where you can feast your mind on a rich and diverse range of subject matters. Boston is also a very stylish city; the restaurants, shops and many boutiques attest to this. While it's not really the place for bargain hunting, if you like to move in society's upper circles then you will feel right at home in the up-market malls and venues. Boston is also a great place to visit with the family. So much of America's history is tied up in this city and being able to visit historic places with your kids will help bring alive what they have learned in class. There is a dedicated children's museum that has interactive and interesting displays and exhibits that is a must-see if travelling with kids.

Leading Museums Near Boston Apartments

The Boston Museum of Fine Arts is reputed to be one of the greatest art collections worldwide. They have more Monet's than any other museum outside of Paris. The MIT Science Museum has some fascinating exhibits and is well worth visiting. The Boston Children's Museum has consistently, for over 95 years, provided interesting, informative and interactive exhibits that provide children the opportunity to learn interesting facts in a fun way.

Types of Boston Vacation Homes

The types of rentals available in Boston range from stylish brownstone houses and up-market apartments to comfortable houseboats. Many of the rentals allow for shorter stays so if you can only stay for a limited amount of time, you can still benefit from the more affordable rates. Other benefits include being able to be closer to the major sites without having to break the bank and having a greater degree of flexibility in terms of coming and going and meal times. Most likely, you'll be out all day sightseeing and coming back to a spacious apartment or houseboat is far more enjoyable than being confined to a single room or having to share a lounge with hundreds of other hotel guests.
