  • Fabulous Stay and Beats Any Hotel

    "Been to Boston numerous times but Kevin's place is by far the best we've ever stayed. The location is perfect - walking distance to great restaurants and shopping, and if you're a runner or a biker, it's minutes to run/bike over to the Charles River where you can run or bike for hours. We've traveled all over the world and stayed at a lot of different types of accommodations - hotels, boats, houses, tree tops, etc. - and Kevin's place is high on our list. One of the great things that everyone expects but doesn't get all the time - everything works at this apartment. The wi-fi works, the tv works, the a/c works, the locks, the showers, everything. The scenario of flying in to an unknown house only to find that the bathroom light doesn't work at 2:00 am will NOT happen here. And of course the pictures show how beautifully appointed the apartment is. I already told Kevin we're back next year!"

  • California Traveler Loved Boston

    "The condo was wonderful. The location was perfect for sightseeing. No need to rent a car. Subway convenient for longer distances that can't be walked. Food choices galore right out your front door. Don't miss the hidden convenience store just down the street. The owners feel like your friends immediately and have everything you need. Condo was super comfortable (amazing sofa) and bedrooms quiet and nice. High tech shower was daunting but once mastered was great."

  • Perfect Location, Fun Experience!

    "After six days in Salem and Nantucket for a mini, 50-year reunion with two of my wife's college friends and spouses, we and one of the college friends decided to spend a few days in Boston, as we'd never visited there before. Requiring two rooms, we found conveniently located hotels too pricey, but a neighbor of ours mentioned they stayed on a Boat & Breakfast in Boston several years ago and thought it was great. Despite being in our early 70s, we're still adventuresome and decided let's see what's available on VRBO and give it a try. "The Golden Slipper" suited our needs perfectly with its very convenient location at Lewis Wharf, easy walking distance to the Aquarium, restaurants and to walking the Freedom Trail with it's many interesting attractions. Accommodations aboard were excellent with two staterooms -- a very comfortable king bed for my wife and I, and a queen bed stateroom for our friend. Both had their own baths -- ours was even fitted with a small bathtub/shower. The galley and lounge area were comfortable and had ample seating for six on this 40-foot vintage Chris Craft. Gretchen, the boat owner was very helpful and accommodating in our initial and subsequent emails and had her manager Susan meet us at the wharf lobby. She helped us with our luggage and explained the workings of the galley, baths and other necessary information and requirements for our three-night stay. The refrigerator had juices, milk, breakfast bars, fruit and cream cheese for the two varieties of bagels provided. Plenty of coffee and tea were also available. We bought cereal and enjoyed breakfasts outside aft on deck chairs and a settee -- and again for cocktails in the evening. We walked to restaurants for our dinners -- all within 10-minutes or less. Great location for the North End's many Italian restaurants! We also enjoyed the Chart House and Legal Seafood. At our ages, hauling two pieces of luggage each (enough for 9 days away) was not the easiest in getting from the wharf lobby, down to the boat and particularly into the boat, but we made the most of it and had fun doing it. All in all we enjoyed our stay aboard and recommend it. Boston is a wonderful city and "The Golden Slipper" is a great place to stay!"

  • Fabulous location

    "Great place to enjoy Boston, easy walking to most of the sites. Condo is very clean and decorated in fun, quirky way. Everything you need is available and the hosts are very helpful. LOTS of narrow, windy steps so legs get a workout. The Penthouse is non-smoking, but the building is not so a bit of smoke is noticeable as you enter. We hosted a wedding shower in the condo and it easily accommodated 12 ladies. Overall, perfect for our weekend in Boston."

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.
