Recent Greater Boston property reviews

  • Comfort, Location, Value

    "This rental can't be beat for visiting Boston. You are welcomed to a beautifully appointed two-story apartment with a small, but lovely terrace overlooking the courtyard. While the South End location is convenient to restaurants and public transporation, it is quiet and relaxing. Our group of 5 ladies, in Boston for a college reunion, couldn't have asked for a more accommodating and helpful host."

  • 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!"

  • My first choice the next time I'm in Boston!

    "I stayed here a few days before checking into a hotel for a conference, and loved it! The beautiful brownstone was in a really great location. There were nice local restaurants within walking distance, and a number of historic sights nearby (could be walked to if you don't mind a longer walk or you can take a short subway ride). The apartment was clean, well maintained and beautifully decorated. I loved how well lit the streets are at night, too. I wish my streets were this well lit as these were! But, this apartment felt more like home than a hotel ever will. If I'm being really nit-picky, the only negative was that the person in the apartment above sometimes walked hard. This was in no way a big deal, and happened only once or twice. It's definitely not something that would keep me from booking again in the future, and shouldn't keep anyone else from booking this super-cute place either. I would recommend this place (and have already done so) to anyone wanting an alternative to a hotel. I was a little unsure about booking and staying in an apartment in the beginning - having only stayed in hotels when traveling - but, had a great experience and this is a place I'd love to stay in the next time I'm in Boston. It is my first choice. My favorite activities were the Freedom Trail guided tour and the Duck Tour. I learned tons and got to see a lot of the city. I saw some other sights, but these two were my favorites."

  • Stayed Almost 1 Month for Nearby Surgery - PERFECT CHOICE!

    "My husband & I stayed for nearly 1 month (Dec '13) while I recovered from surgery @ nearby Brigham & Women's Hospital. We originally chose the rental for proximity to B&W, it's 1st-floor location, minimum stairs. Some notes I hope you find helpful... *Incredibly clean, and I'm a total nut about cleanliness *HUGE bed *Reliable & fast Wi-Fi *Listing is true to description; in fact, we were surprised & impressed by the apartment size when we arrived *Richard (owner we primarily spoke to) is professional, efficient, incredibly fast w/ response time *Our one minor issue was fixed immediately, conveniently *Owners were happy to talk to us whenever, or leave us totally alone *Great place for "medical tourists," as it's a 5-min-max cab ride to Longwood hospital area, good area for post-surgery walking *Location is awesome for everyone! You're right "in the mix;" walking, cab & "T" access to ANY ATTRACTION *Handy shops w/in 4 blocks: Whole Foods, Economy Hardware, Wine shop, Dry Cleaners, Art Supplies, different banks, CVS, USPS + TONS more *Yummy Food w/in 4 blocks: Pavement Coffeehouse, Ginger Exchange, Ichiban Yakitori, Boston Shawarma + TONS more *Easy walk to Symphony Hall, Prudential, Newbury St, Fenway, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Museum of Fine Arts, many schools/colleges *There's a 24-hr security guard who walks the street, which was very safe in our experience *Parking a car here is costly, complicated *The 'hood is thriving & diverse; populated by students, artists, older folks, musicians, professionals, bums, professors, hospital staff -- everyone! *The street & apts are charming, pretty, very "Boston" -- you'll certainly hear your neighbors, especially students, but we didn't find it to be a problem... If you're looking for a 100% perfectly sound-proof environment, Boston is not for you *We never waited more than 5 min when we called a cab *While the tub/shower unit are older, the rest of the bath is modern & clean, great water pressure *Linens = plentiful, clean, nice *Sink/oven&stove/fridge/dishwasher/washer&dryer unit all seem new, worked well *TV's are new, have big cable packages, but no DVD *Doors/locks are new & sturdy *Lots of windows & light *Hallway & exterior of building are maintained daily, super clean. We stayed almost a month, so we had a ton of time to find problems... but we really didn't! We would rent this unit again & we would highly recommend it to family/friends! Thanks again to Richard for making the whole stay SO EASY! 5 STARS!"

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.

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.
