Recent Boston reviews

  • Awesome location!

    "Our stay in Boston at this condo was excellent. It is close to the subway stations and trolley pick up. It's right beside the State House and Boston Commons so you couldn't ask for anything better. Beacon Hill is a beautiful area and this condo was smack dab in it. Boston is a great city and we will be back and would definitely stay at this property again. Peter was a great host as well."

  • Perfect for a Large Group, Very Clean!

    "We just stayed at this property for a bachelorette/girls weekend and the house was perfect for our needs. We were a group of 11 and this was more than adequate space for us. This was much more affordable than a hotel. The house was impeccably clean and just as advertised. Jeremy was great to work with, responded very quickly to inquiries and was even nice enough to give us a great dinner recommendation. There were clean sheets and towels just as advertised. In case its not clear from the description there are 2 full bathrooms which we weren't sure about when we read the description. There is a great outdoor space if the weather is nice. Parking was a little tricky since it is all street parking, we had 5-6 cars and were able to manage. Location is good, its about a $20.00 cab ride to the main part of the city. We also walked a little less than a mile to the Sam Adams brewery which was nice. The area surrounding the house is nice with some cute restaurants and shops. All in all a great option when visiting Boston and I could see it working for a variety of group types!"

  • Amazing house, amazing location, amazing vacation!

    "Do not hesitate to rent the Skinny House for your Boston vacation! Besides the thrill of staying in the midst of history, the food in the North End is delicious. The nearby T stops made getting to the house from the airport simple, as well as to Fenway Park, MIT and Harvard. The USS Constitution, Bunker Hill, Faneuil Hall, ,Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, Old North Church, Paul Revere's Home, and many other sites are within walking distance. The house itself had everything we needed ... It didn't feel too small for 2 adults and 2 college age boys. It was very clean on check-in and the washer, dryer, stove, microwave , dishwasher and tv all worked perfectly. The owners were very helpful and quick in their communications. Our flight needed to be changed a few days before we were to arrive (my mistake) and they helped us with suggestions and an early check in. Also, one of my sons left something behind, and the cleaning person found it , gave it to the property manager, Olivia, who mailed it to us at home. What a great team and what great customer service!"

  • 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!"

Boston Travel Tips

Boston Rentals for New England Adventures

It is possible to explore New England on a budget, and Boston, Massachusetts offers plenty of rich cultural and historical influences the entire family will enjoy. Boston rentals are centrally located to many of the major sights in town, as well as surrounding waters and suburbs for a wide range in day trips during your stay.

Reserve Boston Rentals and Tour Boston University

Any Boston vacation should include at least a quick visit to the gorgeous campus of Boston University. The entire family will also enjoy a night at the Coit Observatory, searching for their favorite constellations. This activity is sometimes free of charge throughout the warmer seasons, but check for clear skies before venturing out from your Boston vacation rentals.

Historical Monuments and Attractions for Any Boston Vacation

Boston rentals allow everyone a free history lesson and the chance to visit locations previously only seen in books. During your Boston vacation, spend an afternoon climbing the 294 steps of the Bunker Hill Monument, or show the kids the Old North Church and tell the story of Paul Revere.

A free self-guided tour of the Freedom Trail will take you by nearly every important site downtown. You can end your day by visiting the Harvard Book Store or strolling down Newbury Street for modern shopping and dining before returning to your Boston vacation rentals.

Tour Breweries and Cellars near Boston Vacation Rentals

Boston rentals are located near the Sam Adams Brewery, which offers tours of the facilities and taste tests to visitors. The Harpoon Brewery may also be an important stop on your Boston vacation, but check for days and times to schedule your personal tour.

If beer doesn’t quite tickle your fancy, stop in at Best Cellars, the largest wine retailer located downtown and within a short distance to Boston vacation rentals. On specific nights of the week, you’ll be able to not only shop for your new favorite bottle of wine, but taste a wide variety of new blends.
