  • Great Place to Stay with Conveniences of Home!

    "My friends and I enjoyed our stay at the Condo in Dorchester, MA. The unit was clean, well maintained, and had all the amenities of home. Additionally, the location was convenient to the train station and highway exits as we enjoyed and journeyed to various sites in Boston, Cape Cod, and other nearby locations. There are also lots of restaurants to choose from in the Dorchester area. Marsha and Dave are very friendly and we felt very comfortable there. We would definitely stay here again should our journeys take us to Boston, MA again."

  • Good Stay, Reasonable Price

    "We were happy with this apartment(family of 5) and would probably book again. The description says it is a 1 bedroom, but this is basically a 2 bedroom place. The den is very functional as a bedroom, and has the most comfortable mattress. Nice amount of space, nice area out back to have a glass of wine in the evening, kitchen was well stocked with the basic supplies, and owner was happy to get us anything we needed if it wasn't. My only issue was the the apartment felt like it needed a good deep cleaning. We visited at the tail end of the summer, so it may just be that there was a lot of traffic in the apartment between deep cleanings. It could also be that the buildings out there are over 100 year old, and I may be acting unreasonably and being ignorant due to being from the west...nothing out here is that old! All in all, a great place to spend time with family. We were close to everything, got the hang of the public transit system very quickly, and had a great time."

  • Top Floor, top notch

    "For just about two weeks I stayed on the top floor at this location on Monument avenue and found the accommodations to be fantastic. The room is quiet and bright and the bath is brand new and extremely well appointed. I felt at home there and thought Charlestown was a great, friendly location near downtown where I had business to tend to. I recommend this location and will return for business or just to visit the city."

  • A great place to stay - would stay here again

    "The location of the apartment -- with parking -- was perfect. A hop, skip and jump to the T-station, then one stop and you're at the Boston Aquarium waterfront - a perfect place to sign up for a whale watch cruise or eat at Legal Seafood. We got comfortable with the subway system fairly quickly and used it for the majority of our travels through Boston. (The farthest we ventured was Prudential Center which required changing train lines twice. The Charlie card (transit pass) is the way to go.) The view from the property is as terrific as it appears in the photos. I especially enjoyed seeing it as the sun was coming up. Our 2nd floor suite was great - clean and neat, with everything two of us needed for our 4-day stay. There was actually sleeping space for 3, but we only needed the queen-size bed, with duvet, in the larger bedroom. The kitchen was well-equipped, including paper towels and dish soap and some assorted spices, tea bags and other non-perishables. No dishwasher, but we really only used the kitchen to make coffee and toast. (If you stay here, make sure you open every drawer in the kitchen - including those under the cooktop - before deciding you need to go out and buy something.) The bathroom was small, but sufficient, with a wall-mounted hair dryer, electric outlet and plenty of extra towels and space for toiletries, curling iron, etc. Due to the weather, and the fact that we left the apartment early and returned after dark, we didn't get to use the deck, backyard or grill, but they're all available and looked nice. The living room included a large, comfy sofa and Xfinity cable TV service with surround sound. We didn't ever really master that. We thoroughly enjoyed our Duck Tour (from the Prudential Center - which also included a pass to the Top of the Hub), whale watch cruise (through the Aquarium with a naturalist on board) and the hop-on, hop-off Old Town Trolley Tour which included a tour of the harbor and a stop at the USS Constitution (Old Ironsides). Had great seafood (Legal Seafood and Union Oyster House especially) and Harpoon IPA. I miss it already! Hope to get back there some day."

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.
