Recent Boston reviews

  • Great location!!!

    "We loved this apartment! It was the prime location:) The booking process was simple and easy and I loved how the owner did not charge any extra fees, like most other people do. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to visit Boston. It says sleep 6, but could easily fit 8. The only thing I would say is the decor could use some updating, but for the price you really can't complain:) Thank you James for sharing your home with my family!"

  • Amazing location & wonderful views!

    "I've been meaning to write this sooner, as my guy & I stayed in this condo at the beginning of April. All correspondence with the owner Peter was so easy. He even allowed us a super early check in due to our crazy early flight - very accommodating. He met us at the condo & showed us how everything worked. The condo was perfect size for us & the views just can't be beat. The roof top deck was THE BOMB! Unfortunately it was still pretty chilly (we love the cold though) so we couldn't spend too much time up there - but we went up at least once a day. There was a convenience store literally right downstairs as well as a duncan donuts across the street. Being right by the Common, garden & state house was amazing. We walked all over town everyday. Couple of good little bars right near by too that we went to (21st Amendment & Emmits Irish Pub) - good food at both. The only issue we had with the condo was the windows - we had trouble opening them up, but a call to Peter solved this. My guy & I are absolute fresh air people & the condo didn't seem to let a lot of air in. Also the door guy who was there - not a friendly guy. But again, we loved this condo - it felt like home & we were so comfortable in it & it was convenient to everything - food, transportation, things to do."

  • Excellent City Retreat!!

    "My stay was better than could ever be expected. The location of the apartment could not be more centrally located to everything that Boston has to offer. Within a 5 minute walk to historic Boston Common and 10 minute walk to Faneuil Hall, Boston's historic North End and high end shops of Beacon and Newbury Street. The T was also just a 5 minute walk, which made getting anywhere in the city very convenient. The apartment is absolutely beautiful and appears to have been recently renovated with a new kitchen (including dishwasher and all that you would need to make dinner), a very nice built in book case full of interesting reads and an overall cozy feel on the top floor of the building. The roof deck's view is worth a million dollars with views of the sailboats on the Charles River, and amazing views of the city and skyline in all directions. I came here every morning to have my coffee and enjoy the amazing view. It is located in the amazing neighborhood of Beacon Hill with it's beautiful brownstones. A walk around the neighborhood at night felt very safe with many people out enjoying the finally warm nights, and people walking around photographing the amazing architecture during the day. The owner was very easy to deal with, and was waiting for me with my keys when I arrived at 11:30 at night after a long flight. I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay, and I would highly recommend this beautiful apartment to anybody seeking the perfect apartment for their stay in Boston."

  • Home Away From Home!!

    "Walking thru the front door of this Vrbo, my sisters and I felt comfortable immediately. The photos on website are accurate and display its airy, bright layout. Close to the T, shopping and restaurants, it's proximity to Boston's Best Sights, this condo is a WINNER, and we'd recommend it highly to other Boston visitors ! We can't say enough about Lisa, the owner, who accommodated our every need and we look forward to staying in this great condo again!"

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.

Boston Attractions

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.

For a more modern take on Boston, head to the Institute of Contemporary Art. This structure houses an eclectic mix of modern art and fun displays to spark your inner creativity. The museum was initially founded in 1936 as the Boston Museum of Modern Art.

You can get a picturesque view of Boston when you head to HarborWalk. This attraction is located on the waterfront and meanders through several neighborhoods such as Chelsea, North End, Downtown and Dorchester, giving you an inside look Boston's local life. This open space is home to several restaurants and is considered one of the city's best spots to visit.
