Recent Boston reviews

  • Large house, big dining room table, secluded upscale location, very nice owners

    "We had 12-15 people and it was nice to have everyone together. The house is in pretty good condition on the inside, looks like it could use some touching up on the exterior, but that didn't bother us. I met both of the owners (husband and wife) and they were very helpful for anything we asked. I would stay here again. The main floor has 3 bedrooms: 1) two queen beds, 2) two queen beds, 3) one queen bed. The 'basement' has 2 bedrooms: 4) one full size and one twin bed, 5) one queen bed - semi private as it has louvered doors on one side. I think we had 2 rollabeds. All 3 main floor bedrooms had sliding glass doors that open to the dining room - odd for a house, but this was or can be used for meetings. It wasn't a problem. Plenty of parking next to the house. The deck was pretty large and nice to watch the ocean and stuff. Plenty of seating for casual hanging out. All of the furnishings were pretty good - none was unacceptable."

  • The best kept secret!

    "The apartment is in a great location! The area is very safe and around the corner is a small park with a full size basketball court and room to play. The apartment was clean, it was in a quiet location, the beds were very comfortable and it had plenty of room for the 3 of us. Carlos was very pleasant and available for all of our questions. The apartment is in the North End of Boston and walking distance to the waterfront and Quincy Market/Fanieul Hall and beyond. All have lots to offer–bakeries, great Italian food, shopping, history and culture. I highly recommend staying here on your visit to Boston!"

  • Fabulous Stay and Beats Any Hotel

    "Been to Boston numerous times but Kevin's place is by far the best we've ever stayed. The location is perfect - walking distance to great restaurants and shopping, and if you're a runner or a biker, it's minutes to run/bike over to the Charles River where you can run or bike for hours. We've traveled all over the world and stayed at a lot of different types of accommodations - hotels, boats, houses, tree tops, etc. - and Kevin's place is high on our list. One of the great things that everyone expects but doesn't get all the time - everything works at this apartment. The wi-fi works, the tv works, the a/c works, the locks, the showers, everything. The scenario of flying in to an unknown house only to find that the bathroom light doesn't work at 2:00 am will NOT happen here. And of course the pictures show how beautifully appointed the apartment is. I already told Kevin we're back next year!"

  • Lovely neighborhood spot

    "This was the perfect place to stay - homey, close to public transportation, and quiet. It was a quick T ride or a nice walk to the Copley Square convention center where I had a conference. The family was able to have a base to explore some of the off the beaten path beauties of Boston - Olmsted's emerald necklace gardens and the fine arts museum. It was very convenient for our rental car with lots of free street parking. The owners are wonderful."

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.
