  • Lovely condo!

    "We had a wonderful stay in this condo. The place is lovely - much larger than it looks in the photos. Sarah was very helpful, and we had everything we needed. The neighborhood is great - we love JP! Our daughter and her family live nearby, so we'll visit again and most certainly stay here again. Thank you for everything."

  • Beacon Hill's Finest

    "I stayed in this apartment for 6 weeks while working in Boston. I give it my highest recommendation. I have rented 2 other Beacon Hill apartments off VRBO during my travels, but this one, hands down is my favorite. It is clean, comfortable, and has everything you might need for an all inclusive rental. The location couldn't be better, it's safe and close to tons of restaurant's, and Whole Foods is a short walk away. And to top it off, literally, is that incredible rooftop deck. The view is great, perfect for coffee or happy hour, and as inviting as it is, I had the place to myself 95% of the time. Iwona, the owner couldn't be nicer nor a better hostess. She met me there with the keys, and was available by phone anytime I had a question. Beacon Hill is a great, historic area, and this is the only place I want to stay when I go back again. Thanks Iwona."

  • Brilliant location

    "This place is situated in the most quaint street just one block back from Boston Common. It's location for sightseeing is perfect as you can walk just about everywhere. It is in a safe neighbourhood and the Cheers bar is only 2 blocks away. The home is so quaint and very spacious with two teenage boys it was perfect. The restaurants are all close by and Charles street is just 2 blocks away and you will find something to eat there. We did find though 21st Amendment a really good pub and it has such a good selection of food (although the portion sizes are very large) and the staff are friendly. We also found ZEN Japanese Grill & Sushi Bar which is near the 21st Amendment a very good sushi place with reasonable prices. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Boston except elderly people as the stairs could be an issue."

  • Nice, convenient location for Boston sight seeing

    "We enjoyed a long weekend in Boston, traveling with our 2 teenagers. The accommodations were more than adequate for our needs. The futon and beds were comfy, bedding and towels were nice. The kitchen supplied things we needed. The WiFi was fast and reliable. The shower was a bit quirky (we are all over 5'8") and had to bend our heads a bit so as to not hit our heads on the wall that slanted down. Our visit coincided with a heat wave (we live in the south and are used to heat and humidity) and found that the living area/kitchen didn't really cool that well. A fan would have been nice but we were fine. Our communication with the owner was fantastic. She was quite helpful in providing information to us. Just wish we could have met her! Perhaps another visit. The location was really great for getting to the subway, walking to stores, restaurants, etc. We would definitely stay again."

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.
