Recent Greater Boston reviews

  • Awesome location!

    "Our stay in Boston at this condo was excellent. It is close to the subway stations and trolley pick up. It's right beside the State House and Boston Commons so you couldn't ask for anything better. Beacon Hill is a beautiful area and this condo was smack dab in it. Boston is a great city and we will be back and would definitely stay at this property again. Peter was a great host as well."

  • Beautiful apartment!

    "It's been such a pleasure to stay in this wonderful apartment. The space is spotless and has everything we needed for our stay. It has lot's of character, we loved the exposed brick, great library and beautiful artwork. Having a full kitchen was so great! We were there for a week and some days just stayed in the apartment reading, cooking and relaxing in this sunny space. The owner is very quick to communicate with and it was so nice to meet her in person when we arrived! Thank you for the best visit to Boston so far!"

  • Boston Vacation

    "Our group(5 couples) spent a week at this property it was great. House was very nice. Easy access to the subway about 5 t0 6 blocks but felt safe in the neighborhood walking around. If any complaints steps were a little noisey and need better shades on french doors in bedroom on main floor for privacy. Plenty of room in the main living space, really nice kitchen and deck area. Had a great time and price was good.Would Rent again from this owner in a heart beat."

  • Loved it.

    "The apartment is charming and conveniently located to Roxbury station. It’s a 5-10 minute walk to the Orange Line and only a few subway stations away from the Freedom Trail. We bought a $19 week subway pass at the airport and it got us everywhere including Cambridge. Not once did I wish I had a car. Fort Hill Inn is tucked away on a side street so it is very quiet. We didn’t do any cooking, but the kitchen has everything required for in-house meals. There was plenty of hot water in the bathroom. The tap water tasted good which is a real plus since you don’t have to acquire bottled water for your stay. The apartment is clean and well-maintained. It was exactly as described and pictured in the listing. The bed and sofa were both comfortable. The owner is easy to work with. He is quick to respond to emails and phone calls. I would definitely stay at this location again or recommend it to a friend."

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.

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.
