Recent Greater Boston property reviews

  • Fabulous option for a family/group!

    "My husband and I brought our 5 kids to show them our old Boston stomping grounds... We loved having a "home-away-from-home" option where we could have space to spread out and eat in; it is so convenient and economical to not have to eat out every meal. The place was nicely furnished and it was especially nice to not have to worry about soap/toilet paper/shampoo/etc... This location was very convenient to hop on and off the "T" (Symphony) metro stop with our kids 7-16 ages. Thanks for providing an excellent option for our family!"

  • Perfect Place for Families and Boston Sightseeing

    "You really can't beat this place. It's located in one of the most beautiful and accessible places in Boston. If you are in reasonably good shape, you can walk to all of the major tourist attractions on this side of the river. Most are less than two miles away. The subway is ~2 blocks away and you can be across the River into Cambridge in the blink of any eye. It's a 15-minute taxi ride from Logan duruing off-peak hours. The apartment itself was comfortable, clean and light and the owners were extremely easy to work with. Deposit was cherrfully and rapidly refunded days after the trip. Easily the best VRBO experience we've had to date. My only caveat -- and it is minor -- if you have problems walking, you may find the steps necessary to get to the apartment something of a challenge. They are steep and many. Not an issue for us at all, but worth bearing in mind depending on who is in your party. I'd highly recommend property to any small family or group interested in Boston sightseeing."

  • Lovely apartment in A+ location

    "Apartment was wonderful, and the location (about a 5 minute walk to Porter Square Red Line stop) was fantastic. We rented a car (and were provided with a temporary on-street parking permit by landlord), because we were visiting family in the suburbs. However, for vacation-goers who are looking tour in and around downtown Boston/Cambridge, a car is not necessary, given the apartment's proximity to public transportation. Porter Square is charming, with a wide array of restaurants, shopping (incl supermarket), etc. Our family consists of two adults and two teenagers. Our son took over the living room for his bedroom (landlord allowed him to borrow a comfortable, queen-sized air mattress), as we used the back door as our primary entrance thus affording our son some privacy. Landlord was nice and easy to deal with. Apartment was well decorated but not overly fragile or fussy. Apartment is ideal for a couple but works fine for a family with one or two children. Only negative was no central a/c (apartment has room units in each bedroom which worked fine for our visit, as it wasn't overly hot)."

  • 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."
