Recent Greater Boston property reviews

  • LOVED "my little apartment" in Boston!

    "One of the best parts of our 6-night stay in Boston was this darling little apartment on Hanover street. My son who lives in Boston said, "Mom, how did you find such a great place on the most exciting street in Boston?" My elderly parents and I stayed here, and while the small couch in the living room was not the largest for sleeping - I was completely comfortable, and am a 5' 3" 56 year old woman; be fore-warned there are many stairs - but my parents did just fine. There was GREAT closet space in the upstairs bedroom. The bathroom was extremely clean. Absolutely loved the charming kitchen. Made our coffee every morning and I went out early and got fresh hot pastries from Modern Pastry down the street for breakfast. (You will not believe the lines outside this place and Mike's Pastry across the street at 10-11PM each night - and you will be patting yourself on the back that you don't have to stand in them because you live here and can always come back.) It was wonderful to be able to look out the front door and down the street to choose whatever Italian restaurant we wanted for the evening. And in the morning a short walk led to the harbor. With fresh hot coffee in hand, I enjoyed beautiful sunrises each morning. AND this apartment is a very short walk to the ferry where you can catch a $3 harbor ride over to the USS Constitution. It is a busy street and the building holds full-time tenants who can be quite rowdy on weekend nights - but that only led to a sense of immersing ourselves in the excitement of the city. And all the neighbors were so kind, including the firemen at the station across the street. PLUS, it is not a very far walk up to Quincy Market and Boston Common. Check-in was amazingly simple, and although I was apprehensive about renting in this manner, Dror followed through on every single detail. I almost hate to write such a great review, because I sure want "my little apartment" available for my next trip to Boston! Hope everyone will treat the property with respect so the cost can stay as reasonable as possible. You're just gonna love it!"

  • "I rented this apartment in the heart of the North End from Charrissa and the place is amazing! The location, which is directly on the most famous street in the area, and accommodations are incredible! On the same street as all of the best Italian restaurants and bakery shops, the apartment is conveniently located to shopping and food. The interior is beautiful and wonderfully appointed. Great, first rate appliances and an absolutely amazing roof deck with incredible water and city views. Last but not least, Charrissa is the BEST landlord you could ever encounter. She is kind, understanding and completely respectful of your time and privacy. She truly is the type of person we all hope to deal with when renting an apartment. I mean this sincerely and will more than gladly speak to anyone who is thinking about renting."

  • Fabulous option for a family/group!

    "My husband and I brought our 5 kids to show them our old Boston stomping grounds... We loved having a "home-away-from-home" option where we could have space to spread out and eat in; it is so convenient and economical to not have to eat out every meal. The place was nicely furnished and it was especially nice to not have to worry about soap/toilet paper/shampoo/etc... This location was very convenient to hop on and off the "T" (Symphony) metro stop with our kids 7-16 ages. Thanks for providing an excellent option for our family!"

  • Very nice place

    "The place was very nice and clean. We arrived earlier than the 3 pm checkin and were kind of lost, and Terri took the time to explain things to us, and let us put our luggage in the condo. The only bad thing was that we were 2 friends so we each took a bed, and the sofa bed was not very comfortable. But the other one was extremely comfortable. Nice place, conveniently located, nice owner. I would recommend it and go back. Thank you"

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.

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.
