Recent Boston reviews

  • The best in boston

    "This apartment is even better than it looks on the internet. It is beautifully furnished and has all the facilities and equipment you want. A real bonus is the rooftop setting and two full bathrooms. The location is perfect for walking everywhere: to cafes, boutiques, tour meeting places, etc. It is in a beautiful tree lined street and neighbourhood- classic Boston. We could not have asked for more."

  • Fantastic accomodations and location !!

    "We were 3 couples in Boston to see the sights. We were extremely satisfied with this house and the location. Each couple occupied their own floor with private bedroom and bath. The second floor with kitchen, dining room, and living room were spacious and comfortable. Restaurants and grocery stores are nearby and easy to find. It's a short walk to 2 T stops from which we were able to go anywhere in the city. We even used it to go to Cambridge to tour Harvard university and Quincy to tour the John Adams home. We had a car but only used it to go back & forth to the airport although we could have used the MBTA for this too. It is within walking distance of several colleges and universities so would be convenient for anyone visiting students. We definitely would stay here again if we return to Boston."

  • 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!"

  • Great Location

    "The unit is exactly as pictured. It is very convenient and close to some wonderful restaurants and just a few blocks from the Haymarket T stop. The location is very safe and was super quiet...we rarely heard or saw any neighbors. We are very active and this was just a place to lay our heads. That being said, a better mattress and linens would have garnered this a 5, otherwise it meets basic needs. Note: If you need or prefer a firm mattress this would not be your best choice. Having visited Boston numerous times we like to stay in a different area each time to try new restaurants and shops. Bread and Butter makes a fantastic breakfast quiche, Pushcart Pizza makes a great pie and you have to hit Mike's Pastry for dessert...then walk it all off on the Freedom Trail. You'll find a restaurant and bakery on very block so pace yourselves!"

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.
