Recent Boston reviews

  • Brilliant location

    "This place is situated in the most quaint street just one block back from Boston Common. It's location for sightseeing is perfect as you can walk just about everywhere. It is in a safe neighbourhood and the Cheers bar is only 2 blocks away. The home is so quaint and very spacious with two teenage boys it was perfect. The restaurants are all close by and Charles street is just 2 blocks away and you will find something to eat there. We did find though 21st Amendment a really good pub and it has such a good selection of food (although the portion sizes are very large) and the staff are friendly. We also found ZEN Japanese Grill & Sushi Bar which is near the 21st Amendment a very good sushi place with reasonable prices. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Boston except elderly people as the stairs could be an issue."

The salon was a perfect location and comfortably suited for a romantic weekend for two The Owners are a pleasure to deal with and the Salon is a very peaceful, but city center hide away.

  • 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."

  • More than we expected!

    "We stayed here for a full week with our almost 11 year old grandson and we all enjoyed this house on the Freedom Trail. Any other lodging in Boston might have meant that we would need a car but this house is located within walking distance of (almost) everything we intended to visit. I think we used the transit system just once. The house itself seemed so spacious, which sounds odd I know. Loved all the counter space and storage in both the kitchen and the laundry area. Owners met all needs, which is a first in all the times I've rented vacation homes on VRO. If you are in good health, no matter your age, I highly recommend this rental. And if you're a walker you will appreciate the ability to visit everything from Bunker Hill to the Tea Party ship on foot. If you have a problem with stairs, especially narrow spiral staircases then the master bedroom might be difficult for you. I was worried about coming down those stairs at night to use the bathroom so decided to cut off my fluid intake about 6 PM so I wouldn't need the bathroom at night. That worked for me! Never met or spoke to the person who is the property manager so can't speak of her personally but the property was clean and well stocked and more than we expected!"

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.
