Recent Boston reviews

  • Top Floor, top notch

    "For just about two weeks I stayed on the top floor at this location on Monument avenue and found the accommodations to be fantastic. The room is quiet and bright and the bath is brand new and extremely well appointed. I felt at home there and thought Charlestown was a great, friendly location near downtown where I had business to tend to. I recommend this location and will return for business or just to visit the city."

  • Incredible townhouse in an incredible location in Boston

    "My three siblings and their spouses joined us in Boston for a fantastic December weekend where we were able to enjoy not only the city of Boston, but also the amenities of this comfortable, superbly appointed, ridiculously central brownstone (Symphony Hall is around the corner, Copley Plaza and Newbury Street a short walk, the MFA and the Gardner museum down the street....). Tim couldn't have been more helpful and courteous. The kitchen is fantastic with excellent cookware and an open-space set up with an island for the non-chefs and lots of workspace for the chefs. The living room is comfy and the hang-out on the second floor with its two-story ceiling is like a lodge. The bedrooms are terrific and there's an amazingly well-equipped mini-gym! And the bathrooms are wonderful We can't recommend Tim's place highly enough! John"

  • Boston Vacation

    "Our group(5 couples) spent a week at this property it was great. House was very nice. Easy access to the subway about 5 t0 6 blocks but felt safe in the neighborhood walking around. If any complaints steps were a little noisey and need better shades on french doors in bedroom on main floor for privacy. Plenty of room in the main living space, really nice kitchen and deck area. Had a great time and price was good.Would Rent again from this owner in a heart beat."

  • Perfect Location, Fun Experience!

    "After six days in Salem and Nantucket for a mini, 50-year reunion with two of my wife's college friends and spouses, we and one of the college friends decided to spend a few days in Boston, as we'd never visited there before. Requiring two rooms, we found conveniently located hotels too pricey, but a neighbor of ours mentioned they stayed on a Boat & Breakfast in Boston several years ago and thought it was great. Despite being in our early 70s, we're still adventuresome and decided let's see what's available on VRBO and give it a try. "The Golden Slipper" suited our needs perfectly with its very convenient location at Lewis Wharf, easy walking distance to the Aquarium, restaurants and to walking the Freedom Trail with it's many interesting attractions. Accommodations aboard were excellent with two staterooms -- a very comfortable king bed for my wife and I, and a queen bed stateroom for our friend. Both had their own baths -- ours was even fitted with a small bathtub/shower. The galley and lounge area were comfortable and had ample seating for six on this 40-foot vintage Chris Craft. Gretchen, the boat owner was very helpful and accommodating in our initial and subsequent emails and had her manager Susan meet us at the wharf lobby. She helped us with our luggage and explained the workings of the galley, baths and other necessary information and requirements for our three-night stay. The refrigerator had juices, milk, breakfast bars, fruit and cream cheese for the two varieties of bagels provided. Plenty of coffee and tea were also available. We bought cereal and enjoyed breakfasts outside aft on deck chairs and a settee -- and again for cocktails in the evening. We walked to restaurants for our dinners -- all within 10-minutes or less. Great location for the North End's many Italian restaurants! We also enjoyed the Chart House and Legal Seafood. At our ages, hauling two pieces of luggage each (enough for 9 days away) was not the easiest in getting from the wharf lobby, down to the boat and particularly into the boat, but we made the most of it and had fun doing it. All in all we enjoyed our stay aboard and recommend it. Boston is a wonderful city and "The Golden Slipper" is a great place to stay!"

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.
