Recent Boston reviews

  • Large house, big dining room table, secluded upscale location, very nice owners

    "We had 12-15 people and it was nice to have everyone together. The house is in pretty good condition on the inside, looks like it could use some touching up on the exterior, but that didn't bother us. I met both of the owners (husband and wife) and they were very helpful for anything we asked. I would stay here again. The main floor has 3 bedrooms: 1) two queen beds, 2) two queen beds, 3) one queen bed. The 'basement' has 2 bedrooms: 4) one full size and one twin bed, 5) one queen bed - semi private as it has louvered doors on one side. I think we had 2 rollabeds. All 3 main floor bedrooms had sliding glass doors that open to the dining room - odd for a house, but this was or can be used for meetings. It wasn't a problem. Plenty of parking next to the house. The deck was pretty large and nice to watch the ocean and stuff. Plenty of seating for casual hanging out. All of the furnishings were pretty good - none was unacceptable."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Mr. & Mrs. First Time User of VRBO

    "The key in real estate/travel is Location Location Location! The location could not be more ideal - and adding the free parking in the garage made it heavenly. The personal service provided by V went beyond the call of duty - fresh fruit, breakfast assortments, bottled water, etc were a welcome amenity especially when arriving late. Personal greetings from V when he provided the keys (two sets as requested) and orientation on the retail stores in the neighborhood were indispensable. Although there were no daily housekeeping services, there were plenty of towels in the linen closet for daily changes. Further when we accidentally left a phone charger after our departure, V fed expressed it to us. His service was the intangible value to the tangible value of the rental."

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.
