  • Charming neighborhood in Boston's North End

    "We stayed in this delightful studio four nights while in town with friends. The neighborhood Is charming and the building is quiet. We did encounter challenge accessing the building upon arrival. The code given to us for the lockbox did not work despite multiple attempts. We finally called the maintenance number given. The gentleman who answered indicated that the lockbox worked earlier in the day and that he was unable to come assist us. We tried a few more times without luck. Finally the man told us there was an alternate lockbox and gave us the location and code. However the "clear" button was broken and we had to dig through our bags to find a pen to insert into the opening. Finally were able to access keys. This would have normally been just a small issue but it was literally raining sleet and we were forced to stand outside the whole time. The good news is that upon entering the apt we forgot the troubles. The apt is decorated in lovely tones and everything is updated. We were quite comfortable for our stay and commented several times about how much better it was than a hotel. Two comments: the trash in the bathroom had not been emptied prior to our stay. There are wine glasses but no wine opener. If you plan to enjoy a bottle of wine in the apt bring your own opener. The North End is delightful with many great restaurants within walking distance. We also found it easy to access the public transportation and to start walking the Freedom Trail. Definitely a location to choose for your stay. Overall, we highly recommend this apt and are confident the lockbox issues can be resolved with new boxes. Thank you for sharing this lovely place. We will be back"

  • Could not possibly ask for a better location!

    "Perfectly located large one bedroom condo with secured access. Very comfortable and had everything that we needed. My husband loved the large flat panel tv with cable and espn. Lovely rooftop picnic area with great views. Good restaurants on the first floor of the building along with convenience store and whole foods about ten to fifteen minute walk. Peter was very helpful and answered all of our questions. Thank you Peter for a wonderful stay in Boston!"

  • Spacious and well-equipped accommodation for visiting professor

    "I spent three months at this lovely and comfortable apartment in the snowy winter of 2015. Despite the snow and the cold, the apartment was warm and cozy, the bed extremely comfortable, and the kitchen very well-equipped (I contributed an electric kettle to the kitchen for the future enjoyment of other tea-drinkers)."

  • Wonderful Stay!

    "If you are thinking of spending anytime in the Boston area, you MUST stay here! The location is incredibly convenient. Yes, the train station is very close by but driving into Boston or any of the other close by attractions is very easy. We spent time in Plymouth, Boston, Kennebunkport & Quincy. Very easy access. Loved walking to Main St. in the morning for bagels or donuts & grabbing dinner at night. Traveled with our goldendoodle so the fenced in back yard was a plus. If you need doggie day care, Dogwood Cottage is just down the street. Greg (the owner) was great to work with & we would definitely recommend this property!"

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.

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. The John F. Kennedy Library and Museum takes an in-depth look at the life of the famous president during his 1,000 days in office.

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.
