Recent Boston reviews

  • 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."

  • Great little spot in East Boston

    "My husband and I stayed here in celebration of our anniversary. It was the first time we'd been away alone in a long time. And we weren't disappointed. This spot on Marginal Street is everything we expected; just as advertised. The owners are very pleasant and friendly and willing to lend a helping hand. John said he was available by text if we needed any advice while touring Boston! The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. And, it was so great to be so close to the T. When we first arrived we took a walk to the park down the road. This park was such a little gem with beautiful harbor views. Great for a picnic. The apartment itself was clean and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable. We only wished we had more time to sample all the great food in East Boston and beyond. As it was, our first night we went to Italian Express in East Boston right around the block. This place had a homey welcoming atmosphere. The second night we were in Quincy Market and sat outside to eat take out after a long walking tour of Boston. A walk to North Boston during the day was lovely. We also visited the North Church and a little printing press nearby where the proprietor re-enacts printing as it was done when the original Declaration of Independence was created . We went into Paul Revere’s house. So much history and we barely scratched the surface... Oh and don't forget the little bakery next store to Italian Express. We stopped her to stock up on pastry for the ride home. Thanks John and Melissa for being as advertised!"

  • Beacon Hill's Finest

    "I stayed in this apartment for 6 weeks while working in Boston. I give it my highest recommendation. I have rented 2 other Beacon Hill apartments off VRBO during my travels, but this one, hands down is my favorite. It is clean, comfortable, and has everything you might need for an all inclusive rental. The location couldn't be better, it's safe and close to tons of restaurant's, and Whole Foods is a short walk away. And to top it off, literally, is that incredible rooftop deck. The view is great, perfect for coffee or happy hour, and as inviting as it is, I had the place to myself 95% of the time. Iwona, the owner couldn't be nicer nor a better hostess. She met me there with the keys, and was available by phone anytime I had a question. Beacon Hill is a great, historic area, and this is the only place I want to stay when I go back again. Thanks Iwona."

  • 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."

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.
