Recent Boston reviews

  • Great stay on Beacon Hill

    "We enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It's probably three times the size of a comparably priced hotel room in the neighborhood, which gives your family some ability to get away from each other on vacation. We stayed with our two kids and everyone said their beds were very comfortable. The access to the apartment is slightly odd, stepping down into an alley and then hiking up about fifty stairs, but speaking as a former resident of Beacon Hill, this is absolutely typical of the neighborhood. Part of the reason why we wanted to stay in an apartment was to give our kids a feel for what living here would be like, and that's exactly what we got. And though the stairs may seem like a bit of a hassle, they remove you from street noise, keeping your nights much more quiet than they would be on the first floor. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the wifi worked well enough for me to attend WebEx meetings and stay caught up on emails. We feel the apartment was accurately represented in the photos and description, was clean and well managed, and we would definitely stay there again. The renting coordinator was also very responsive to us and our various questions. There's a Whole Foods within walking distance where you can get whatever you need, and several grocers within a three minute walk where you can get necessities, or luxuries, like a bottle of wine or a cookie. The neighborhood is fantastic, by the way. You can walk to most places within about fifteen minutes (Fenway not included, that's about a half hour but still a nice walk on a pleasant day) and it's also convenient to several T-Stops. We highly recommend eating at Antonio's on Cambridge Street - a great italian restaurant as good as anything in the North End - we've been eating there since they opened about twenty years ago and they offer a great italian meal in the neighborhood."

  • Amazing Place To Stay in Boston!

    "My boyfriend and I recently had the opportunity to stay at this amazing studio apartment in Boston and we cannot say enough positive things about it! We always love to stay in apartments/condos when we travel as we feel it's truly the best way to feel like "locals" and this condo definitely did just that. The apartment was spacious enough for us and all our luggage. The bathroom was just the right size and (if we hadn't decided to indulge on the incredible Italian food all around us) the kitchen would've been perfect for cooking meals. I would say one of the best parts about the apartment was the bed! Since Boston is coined as "The Walking City," the bed in the apartment was just absolutely the best thing to come home to after a long day. I swear- I still miss that bed haha. I would definitely echo the sentiments of others about the stairs- they are pretty narrow and hard to maneuver with luggage, but honestly, not a problem at all (great way to burn off the Italian calories!). The location of this property is also ideal. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from two different T stations. It's also right in the middle of some of the best Italian food restaurants we've ever eaten at (and we spent a month in Italy!). It's about 1 block away from The North Church and Paul Revere's statute/house. It's really right on the Freedom Trail and an incredibly easy walk over to the USS Constitution, Bunker Hill etc., as well as down to Beacon Street, The Commons, Faneuil Hall, and all the other sights. I would also recommend this property because of Carlos and Cheryl. I had no reservations about staying there because of their professionalism, promptness, and helpfulness throughout the whole process. In fact, Carlos even would chat with me on the phone and when I'd e-mail, he would respond typically within the hour. We also appreciated the little "information packet" they sent us right before we left. It covered everything--from how to control the thermostat, how to open the bed, how to find the apartment, and the best places to eat and what to see while we were there. Thank you Carlos and Cheryl! When we come back, we will definitely be staying here again."

  • "Wow-ed" by 8 Symphony Rd

    "Wow! What a fantastic home in a perfect location. Despite the fact that the home is probably the nicest thing in a neighborhood of college students, we loved the vibe and loved being surrounded by young people who were quiet during the week and having fun on the weekend. There were 6 of us ~ 3 couples who enjoyed 8 Symphony Road. We were on the go the whole time, and found the proximity of this place to downtown and the T subway the perfect spot. This home had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It was clean, beautifully appointed, and all beds, according to our friends, were comfortable. Kitchen has everything you would need to cook any meal. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, and professional about how they run their VRBO. We definitely would recommend this place and will surely book again if we are in the area. Thanks again!"

  • THE Place to Stay

    "I recently had to stay in the North End for a week to take licensing exams. I was looking for a rental with a great location in the North End and a quiet place to study. The 'Skinny House' easily provided both. The house was absolutely gorgeous and spacious inside. Do not be fooled about space due to the skinny exterior. The interior offers space inside for everyone to rexlax comfortably. The master bed is a delight to sleep in. The owners were also a pleasure to correspond with, and very easy to get in touch with. My family and I will most definitely make this a yearly trip. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to enjoy the beautiful North End of Boston. Its location and price simply cannot be beat."

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.
