Recent Boston reviews

  • Nice, convenient location for Boston sight seeing

    "We enjoyed a long weekend in Boston, traveling with our 2 teenagers. The accommodations were more than adequate for our needs. The futon and beds were comfy, bedding and towels were nice. The kitchen supplied things we needed. The WiFi was fast and reliable. The shower was a bit quirky (we are all over 5'8") and had to bend our heads a bit so as to not hit our heads on the wall that slanted down. Our visit coincided with a heat wave (we live in the south and are used to heat and humidity) and found that the living area/kitchen didn't really cool that well. A fan would have been nice but we were fine. Our communication with the owner was fantastic. She was quite helpful in providing information to us. Just wish we could have met her! Perhaps another visit. The location was really great for getting to the subway, walking to stores, restaurants, etc. We would definitely stay again."

  • 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."

  • Beacon Hill's Finest

    "I stayed in this apartment for 6 weeks while working in Boston. I give it my highest recommendation. I have rented 2 other Beacon Hill apartments off VRBO during my travels, but this one, hands down is my favorite. It is clean, comfortable, and has everything you might need for an all inclusive rental. The location couldn't be better, it's safe and close to tons of restaurant's, and Whole Foods is a short walk away. And to top it off, literally, is that incredible rooftop deck. The view is great, perfect for coffee or happy hour, and as inviting as it is, I had the place to myself 95% of the time. Iwona, the owner couldn't be nicer nor a better hostess. She met me there with the keys, and was available by phone anytime I had a question. Beacon Hill is a great, historic area, and this is the only place I want to stay when I go back again. Thanks Iwona."

  • Perfect for a Large Group, Very Clean!

    "We just stayed at this property for a bachelorette/girls weekend and the house was perfect for our needs. We were a group of 11 and this was more than adequate space for us. This was much more affordable than a hotel. The house was impeccably clean and just as advertised. Jeremy was great to work with, responded very quickly to inquiries and was even nice enough to give us a great dinner recommendation. There were clean sheets and towels just as advertised. In case its not clear from the description there are 2 full bathrooms which we weren't sure about when we read the description. There is a great outdoor space if the weather is nice. Parking was a little tricky since it is all street parking, we had 5-6 cars and were able to manage. Location is good, its about a $20.00 cab ride to the main part of the city. We also walked a little less than a mile to the Sam Adams brewery which was nice. The area surrounding the house is nice with some cute restaurants and shops. All in all a great option when visiting Boston and I could see it working for a variety of group types!"

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.
