Best Way To Get Away While Feeling So At Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely enjoyed our stay so much! The HouseBoat had everything you could ask for and more! The furnishings, amenities and the beautiful views of the Boston Skyline and surrounding harbor islands was fabulous. We enjoyed the restaurants along the Marina Bay Boardwalk and the short walk back to our "Home Away"! Thank You so much. It truly is the best unique Vacation!

Great place to stay! Very close to Boston and a better experience than staying in a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

I had high expectations for the boat house after seeing the pictures on vrbo and I was not disappointed when we arrived. Owner communicated well and gave us all the info we needed to get into the house and what we would need to bring (only soap and shampoo). The owner had someone come the night before to make sure everything was taking care of and it was ready for our arrival. We had 2 couples and their was plenty of room. The whole house is in excellent condition and the views are amazing. We went into to Boston everyday/night. We took uber every time but once, one time we took the free shuttle to the T-Train but we quickly learned that uber was the easier choice. The ride into Boston was about 15-20 minutes every time we traveled and that was with traffic and without. Only one time in the evening when we came back to the house to change did the boat actually rock a bit, other than that besides looking out of the window, you would have swore you were on land. It was cold out first night and we had the heat on but after that we just had the central a/c off. We had an awesome trip and I'm glad we chose this house instead of an ordinary hotel. I highly recommend staying here!!!

Awesome Boathouse!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here back in July 2015 for a few days visiting family in Quincy. The boathouse is awesome! Comfy beds and great location at Marina Bay. Our favorite was watching the sunset from the top deck. We can't wait to come back!

Great VRBO location for Boston. Unique location and Rental

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the Leah. Perfect location for all locations around Boston. Slight maintenance issues needed to be addressed but they were on top of it. I would recommend this to anybody coming to the Boston area thank you.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a Red Sox game and had such an amazing time. There is a free shuttle that takes you to the T from the marina. The area around the marina is delightful and the restaurant food was very good. We are definately coming back. We enjoyed the houseboat so much.

MS LEAH REVIEW

  • 3 of 5

THERE ARE SEVERAL REASON THIS DOESN'T MAKE IT A 5 STAR. FIRST EASY TO ACCESS, BUT DIDNT UNDERSTAND THE PARKING PASS, BECAUSE YOU DIDINT HAVE A SPECIAL SPOT TO PARK IN AND VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND A PARKING SPOT.

THE MATTRESSES ON THE BEDS WERE VERY POOR. SO HARD, MY BACK HURT FROM SLEEPING ON THEM. ALSO THE FURNITURE (COUCH) VERY WORN, THE LEATHER COMING OFF IT AND SUNKEN IN THE MIDDLE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE TO SIT ON. THE INTERNET WAS TERRIBLE, NEED NOT TO EVEN SAY YOU HAVE IT, COULD NOT SEARCH ANY SITES AND COULD NOT STREAM ANYTHING. ALSO NOT MANY CHANNELS TO CHOOSE FROM ON THE DIRECT TV. ALSO THE WASHING MACHINE WAS OUT OF ORDER, WAS GIVEN INFO ON THAT BEFORE WE CAME BUT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO HAVE TAKEN OFF SOME ON THE RENTAL.

THE KITCHEN VERY NICE. THE MASTER BATH HAD A WASH CLOTH WRAPPED AROUND THE TOP OF THE SHOWER HEAD, DID NOT UNDERSTAND THAT. DON'T TOUCH THE BLINDS IN THE LIVING AREA AND UPSTAIRS THEY ARE FALLING APART. SOME MINOR ITEMS THAT COULD EASILY BE FIXED TO MAKE THIS A 5 STAR. ALSO THE MUSIC AT NIGHT ON THE BOARDWALK WAS VERY LOUD AND WENT ON INTO LATE HOURS....... THE ONLY HOUSE BOAT IN THE MARINA, SO YOU CANT MISS IT. THE CARTS WERE NICE TO CARRY YOUR STUFF TO THE BOAT, BUT THE INCLINE ON THE RAMP IS VERY STEEP. EASY TO ACCESS ENTRY WITH A CODE, SO NO KEYS TO KEEP UP WITH WAS NICE. WE HAD TO BUY ICE AND WATER..... THE ICE MAKER OR WATER ON THE FRIG WAS NOT OPERATIONAL. IT WAS NICE TO HAVE SOAP TO BATHROOMS, BUT NO SHAMPOO. THERE WAS KITCHEN SOAP ALSO TO WASH DISHES WITH AND PAPER TOWELS AND NAPKINS WHICH WAS NICE.

IT WAS CLOSE TO THE CITY WITH AN EASY ON AND OFF 93 AND THE FERRY AT THE MARINA RUNS TO BOSTON AND TO THE CAPE. IT WOULD NOT TAKE MUCH TO MAKE THIS A 5 STAR IN MY OPINION

Owner's Response: Thank you, Belinda for your recent stay as well as feedback. The Marina lot requires a parking pass, they offer assigned spots for additional fee. It would cost our homeaway guests an additional $75.00 per stay to secure one pass, we allow two vehicles at no fee. The owner has a bad back his chiropractor recommended firm Posturepedic mattress. We do have gel mattress covers available for use had you let me know. We have had a very busy season and look to replace any worn furniture before next season. The marina provides internet service, sorry you had difficulty but most guests have not. Direct TV is provided with over 100 channels. We were notified from guest after your stay about condition of blinds, maintenance was there and blinds replaced within the hour. The tide determines how steep ramp incline is, although it is quite steep on low tide- Belinda did not mention level across on high tide. We advertise full kitchen no mention of water or ice? Again we are grateful for your stay. We do provide my direct cell number for immediate response to any questions or concerns. We did not receive any calls, so were was unable to address concerns as this is our first time hearing from you! Best-
