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."

  • Location Can't Be Beat!

    "First of all, the owner Jonathan went above and beyond making sure my husband and I had everything we needed. His communication with us, suggestions, etc. certainly helped us feel right at home. The apartment is in a perfect location and within walking distance to the Metro, which was great! The roof deck had fabulous views of Boston! The only reason I gave our stay 4 stars, rather than 5 is that since the building is older, we could hear a lot of noise from the street. This is absolutely no fault of the owner, but I tend to be a light sleeper at times. My husband and I plan to come back to Boston, hopefully soon, and we will most certainly be staying here again. Thank you Jonathan for everything! You truly helped make our first trip to Boston unforgettable!"

  • Frozen Four Weekend

    "This is a wonderful property and convenient to the subway and many of the best spots in Boston. We loved the bakery and coffee shop a few doors down and of course Clery's Bar and Restaurant."

  • Graduation gathering

    "We had a family get together for a graduation/vacation and this was a perfect spot. The home and it's furnishings are all top notch. Location is very handy (the less driving you have to do in Boston the better). I would highly recommend. Only caution would be if someone has a problem with stairs as there lots of those, was not a problem for us."

Boston Travel Tips

Boston is full of history, perfectly situated on the East Coast and offers several sights the entire family will enjoy. From baseball games at Fenway Park to tours of the city where Revolutionary War soldiers once walked, you'll learn a lot while having fun.

Boston is one of America's oldest cities. It's beginnings date back to 1630, and Boston was a cradle of the American Revolution as Colonists fought to break away from British rule. With so much to offer vacationers, it's no surprise that Boston welcomes in millions of visitors this each year.

While visiting Boston, stop by the Tea Party Ships and Museum. You'll also get to see a live theatrical performance of a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party and an original 1773 tea crate from the most important event leading up to The American Revolution. Visitors can check out the Meeting House and hear the story of the night before the Boston Tea Party as well as first-hand accounts of the patriots who organized it. The museum also includes Griffin's Wharf, a 3D holographic experience taking you back to the streets of Boston in 1773. The kids will feel like patriots as they board restored tea party ships Eleanor and Beaver. For a truly unique look at history, don't leave without seeing the one of the oldest Boston artifacts, the Robinson Half Chest, which is one of only two known tea chests from the Boston Tea Party.

One of the most well-known attractions in this New England city is Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox. "America's Most Beloved Ballpark" offers tours and the chance to see where some of baseball's traditions originated. During a tour you'll view Pesky's Pole up close and even purchase tickets for a seat atop the Green Monster, a 37-foot tall wall in left field.

Take a break from sightseeing and enjoy lunch at the Boston Esplanade. This park sits alongside the Charles River and offers a pathway for walkers and cyclists as well as breathtaking views of the skyline. There are free concerts and public festivals throughout the summer months and the Esplanade is the perfect place for a picnic with the family.
