  • Longwood Studio 15

    "Stayed for 3 nights from Oct. 9 - Oct 11th. Great location for me as my son lives in Allston and it was an easy train ride. T-line very easy 5-8 minute walk. One think I'd advise. The apartment complex is a bit isolated if you don't know where you are going (sorry even with directions I may have gotten lost). However, if your home computer has Google Earth (and if not a library will have it), just look up the address. It gives a fantastic bird's eye or street level view of the entire area. I arrived late at night and had no problem finding the place as I had already "seen" the area on Google Earth and knew exactly where to go. It does help to Google Fenway T-Station first (if you come on the train) to see where you will stop. The apartment was clean but nothing fancy - no probs there. It was good enough weather that I needed neither the heater or air conditioning, so can't say how they work. I would consider the same place again if that helps."

  • Incredible townhouse in an incredible location in Boston

    "My three siblings and their spouses joined us in Boston for a fantastic December weekend where we were able to enjoy not only the city of Boston, but also the amenities of this comfortable, superbly appointed, ridiculously central brownstone (Symphony Hall is around the corner, Copley Plaza and Newbury Street a short walk, the MFA and the Gardner museum down the street....). Tim couldn't have been more helpful and courteous. The kitchen is fantastic with excellent cookware and an open-space set up with an island for the non-chefs and lots of workspace for the chefs. The living room is comfy and the hang-out on the second floor with its two-story ceiling is like a lodge. The bedrooms are terrific and there's an amazingly well-equipped mini-gym! And the bathrooms are wonderful We can't recommend Tim's place highly enough! John"

  • A Wonderful Location

    "11/20-11/30/2014 Our Thanksgiving holiday in Boston was one of the easiest, most memorable, enjoyable and stress-free vacations our family has had in sometime because of this lovely and comfortable apartment located in the heart of Boston. We found the apartment impeccably clean, well furnished, comfortable, and secure with doorman/key access only after hours. It is conveniently located a few steps from Boston Commons and the public park, with walking access to historic sites, restaurants, shopping on Newberry and Boylston Streets, movie theaters, several small local groceries, the "T" transit, and more. Jonathan, the owner, was very gracious and thoughtful by contacting us before the trip to make sure we had sufficient information and questions answered on the area helping to insure a wonderful trip for our family. We would definitely recommend this condominium to friends and family."

  • 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."

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. 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. A detailed list of museum galleries and exhibits is available from tourism bureaus.

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.
