"We stayed in this great condo with an excellent location to all boston has to offer. We will stay here again if possible. Dealing with Michelle was a very good experience.
Don't hesitate to rent from her!"

"I rented this apartment for the fall semester, and it was the first time I have stayed in Boston. It was everything expected and more! The pictures are accurate: the apartment was clean, orderly, beautifully remodeled (both the apartment and garden), and in a great location. The owners are warm and they welcomed me as I arrived. They were available as needed throughout my stay, but not intrusive. I highly recommend this apartment and am scheduled to stay for another semester!"

"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!"

"I spent a week in the Garden Studio and can't say enough about the space or the location. The Garden Studio has its own entrance, a simple, yet elegantly decorated living and bedroom area, a sparkling clean bathroom and a kitchen with everything you need to make yourself feel right at home. The location is quiet and a perfect launching point for sightseeing (on the Freedom Trail), a nice walk to the Navy Yard and about a five minute walk to the subway that can take you anywhere you want to go. No need for a car! I would rent this space again and hope to return whenever I come back to Boston."
