  • Great location at a great price

    "A short walk to the subway and one stop later, we were in the heart of touristy Boston! Though parking is available, we didn't need it as we could get anywhere we wanted by public transportation. It was easy to get to/from the airport, and though very close to the airport, it was not noisy. A 12 minute trip to Long Wharf and we paid a fraction of what the Marriott on Longwharf charges! Plus, we got the better view! Coming from Texas, we didn't feel the weather was too warm, even in August. The a/c was nice for an afternoon nap, but we preferred to sleep with the windows open. With windows on 3 sides of the building, there was always a cross breeze. The apartment was lovely! The layout was a bit quirky, but that is to be expected in an old building. The wood floors were charming. The kitchen was spacious and included everything needed for breakfast or supper. There was even an eclectic assortment of spices. We did not avail ourselves of the grill in the side yard, but it was nice to know that was an option. There is a lot of storage and this would be a great place for a long term rental! Not only was the subway nearby, but there is a good variety of restaurants and shops within a few blocks. I particularly enjoyed A&L Italian Bakery for breakfast pastries. My husband is gluten-free - one reason we prefer to rent a "home away" rather than a hotel room - and Boston as a whole was very responsive to his needs. In particular, Legal Sea Foods (across from the Aquarium T stop) had grilled fish, brown rice, and veggies w/o a bunch of sauces. Antico Forno on Salem in the north end was another favorite with gf pastas and pizza. We had a week and feel we barely scratched the surface of all there was to see in Boston! One highlight was the ranger guided Black Heritage Trail tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we learned some fascinating things. Another highlight was a day trip to visit the old mill town of Lowell - a 45 min train ride and the downtown shuttle at Lowell made a car unnecessary."

  • Lovely neighborhood spot

    "This was the perfect place to stay - homey, close to public transportation, and quiet. It was a quick T ride or a nice walk to the Copley Square convention center where I had a conference. The family was able to have a base to explore some of the off the beaten path beauties of Boston - Olmsted's emerald necklace gardens and the fine arts museum. It was very convenient for our rental car with lots of free street parking. The owners are wonderful."

  • Perfect spot!

    "Just returned from a fabulous 4 day stay in Boston and this perfect apartment! As a frequent user of VRBO, I am always aware of the "little things" that make a big difference. This apartment is very clean and well appointed. The pillows and linens are top notch, and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you may need. We even enjoyed the common outdoor space of the building. This space is small, but never felt cramped. The location can't be beat. We picked up the trolley tour in front of the capitol building, which is a very short walk. We were able to walk every place we wanted to go: the esplanade, Quincy market, Faneuil Hall, the North End (get a cannoli from Mike's Pastry), Boston Common, the Public Garden, even Fenway Park. The subway lines are also very conveniently located. You won't be disappointed in this apartment. It is beautifully done and will be our first choice on any future Boston trips!"

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.
