Recent Boston reviews

  • Great Price, Location and City Parking

    "We spend every New Year's week in Boston and were tire of paying $250+/night for a room and another $40/night for parking so we booked this property. It was great. Centrally located in the heart of Boston. The Property was clean and fully stocked with essentials like soap, shampoo, linens.....There is a kitchen with a stove, oven, microwave, fridge, etc. Cook in or go out to one of the many restaurants, pubs or bars. Parking is convenient and less expensive than a hotel's garage. Plan to walk op 3 flights of stairs (it's worth it though). We will plan on being there again!"

  • Great place!

    "The place was just as expected; very rustic and comfortable. It had everything you needed for our stay. The kitchen was nice and fully supplied to make any meal. The owner also did a great job with the interior design; we did not want to leave the place. The neighborhood was great, and in close proximity to many things. Public transportation was very close, and if you have a car, you can easily find parking during the weekend. I met the owner when i first arrived, and she was very pleasant. I was a little late, and she was very understanding. I would recommend this place to anyone planning to stay in Boston."

  • Could not possibly ask for a better location!

    "Perfectly located large one bedroom condo with secured access. Very comfortable and had everything that we needed. My husband loved the large flat panel tv with cable and espn. Lovely rooftop picnic area with great views. Good restaurants on the first floor of the building along with convenience store and whole foods about ten to fifteen minute walk. Peter was very helpful and answered all of our questions. Thank you Peter for a wonderful stay in Boston!"

  • Perfect location and space

    "The condo is in the heart of Boston and many sites are within walking distance. For everything else, you are a block away from Park Street Station on both the Red and Green lines. We were on a college tour and Jonathan's condo was a perfect base. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Jonathan was easy to communicate with, making our arrival and departure seamless. He even called to make sure we got in alright. The condo itself is even better than the pictures. You feel like you are part of history; the view of the State House from the unit is amazing. We also enjoyed the sunset and sunrise views from the rooftop deck; it was cold but clear. All the amenities are well marked, the Boston books and guides are fun to peruse, as well as other books that would appeal to the VRBO set. Whether our daughter goes to school in Boston or not, we hope to be back for a vacation soon, when we can stay longer. Thanks for a wonderful stay, so much nicer than a hotel."

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.
