Recent Greater Boston reviews

  • spacious, full of light apartment with a great host, on an amazing road

    "we stayed at the apartment on maple avenue for a week whilst visiting boston and getting married at the nearby cambridge city hall. we loved the space, the period fittings, the kitchen full of light, the immaculate bathroom. this place is very clean and feels much bigger than a studio, rather a one bed apartment. the host is extremely pleasant, very generous and helpful on so many levels. thoroughly recommended to enjoy downtown boston at around 15 mins on the t train and harvard campus at 10 mins walk. maple avenue is one of the best street we have seen in boston, leafy, quiet and posh."

  • 3rd time renting from this owner

    "This apartment was quiet, comfortable, and close to everything in Harvard Yard. We all slept well. I have stayed in three different places from Reem and they have all been perfect. Reem is very easy to work with and knowledgable. I highly recommend this owner and her apartments! I will stay in Reem's place every time."

  • 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."

  • Good Stay, Reasonable Price

    "We were happy with this apartment(family of 5) and would probably book again. The description says it is a 1 bedroom, but this is basically a 2 bedroom place. The den is very functional as a bedroom, and has the most comfortable mattress. Nice amount of space, nice area out back to have a glass of wine in the evening, kitchen was well stocked with the basic supplies, and owner was happy to get us anything we needed if it wasn't. My only issue was the the apartment felt like it needed a good deep cleaning. We visited at the tail end of the summer, so it may just be that there was a lot of traffic in the apartment between deep cleanings. It could also be that the buildings out there are over 100 year old, and I may be acting unreasonably and being ignorant due to being from the west...nothing out here is that old! All in all, a great place to spend time with family. We were close to everything, got the hang of the public transit system very quickly, and had a great time."

Greater Boston Travel Tips

Traveling to Boston Vacation Rentals

Boston is a vibrant city and at the heart of America's cultural and historical heritage. There are so many things to see and do in the city that visitors are really spoiled for choice. The beautiful buildings, gardens, museums, art galleries, shops and restaurants provide hours of sightseeing and entertainment.

Boston Logan Airport serves both regional and international airlines. It is one of the country's busiest airports; a huge benefit is that it is conveniently located near the city center. From the airport, you can take a shuttle bus which will connect you with Boston's subway. From there, you can get to just about anywhere in the city. There is also a water shuttle that runs between Logan airport and Rowe's Wharf on Atlantic Avenue in Boston. Taxis and limousines offer private transfers to any point within the city. Amtrak has an extensive rail network connecting Boston with New York and other major towns and cities in the New England area. Scheduled ferries run between Boston and Provincetown, Salem, Hingham, Hull and Quincy. When sightseeing in the city, most people prefer to walk or use the subway stations. Cycling is also a convenient way to get around.

Visitors to Boston

Boston is a beautiful city, home to numerous prestigious universities, museums and art centers. It's often referred to as a city of intellectuals because of the rich heritage of higher learning and culture. People with a keen interest in history, art and culture will find Boston fascinating. You can spend hours browsing through the various museum exhibits, art galleries and libraries. It's a place where you can feast your mind on a rich and diverse range of subject matters. Boston is also a very stylish city; the restaurants, shops and many boutiques attest to this. While it's not really the place for bargain hunting, if you like to move in society's upper circles then you will feel right at home in the up-market malls and venues. Boston is also a great place to visit with the family. So much of America's history is tied up in this city and being able to visit historic places with your kids will help bring alive what they have learned in class. There is a dedicated children's museum that has interactive and interesting displays and exhibits that is a must-see if travelling with kids.

Types of Boston Vacation Homes

The types of rentals available in Boston range from stylish brownstone houses and up-market apartments to comfortable houseboats. Many of the rentals allow for shorter stays so if you can only stay for a limited amount of time, you can still benefit from the more affordable rates. Other benefits include being able to be closer to the major sites without having to break the bank and having a greater degree of flexibility in terms of coming and going and meal times. Most likely, you'll be out all day sightseeing and coming back to a spacious apartment or houseboat is far more enjoyable than being confined to a single room or having to share a lounge with hundreds of other hotel guests.
