A Perfect Holiday Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this property for nearly a week as the first part of our summer holiday from the UK. We selected it due to its proximity to Boston and because it offered our family of 5 the space to relax.

The apartment proved to be an excellent choice and did not disappoint. It was very comfortable, spacious, well decorated and had a lovely pool. It had all the facilities you could ask for and loads more!

We had the perfect hosts. They very kindly picked us up from Logan and took the time to orientate us to Winthrop and to help us to make the most of our short stay in Boston. We managed to get tickets for the Red Sox v Yankees at Fenway Park. We toured the Samuel Adams Brewery, loved the ICA and enjoyed exploring, sightseeing and shopping in central Boston. We also used our host's complementary pass for the New England Aquarium, which was excellent. Our amazing late afternoon Whale Watch trip with a moonlit return to the lights of Boston harbour was the highlight of our 3 weeks holiday.

Getting about was very easy. We bought a $19 week pass for the “T” (train and local buses) to travel into and around Boston. The supermarket, bakery and some excellent restaurants were just a short walk.

We loved all that Boston and Winthrop had to offer and wouldn’t hesitate to return to this property – our home from home in the USA!!

You'll love this house!

You'll love this house!
  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place to stay during your family vacation! Barbara & Ed designed this house with love and you’ll get this feeling immediately. Decor is carefully adjusted. You will find the same ornament on dishes, teacups and on curtains. Everything you need in everyday life is already in the house. Bay-chair, beach chairs, beach towels, board games. Would like to make a cake? You’ll find everything you need. And house is very clean.
Don’t miss your chance to use the pool. Water is heated, light is available, so you can swim even during night-time. But if you don’t plan to use the pool today please don’t forget to inform Barbara & Ed to switch off heating (please try to save their money as they save money for you). Hosts are very kind and allowed us to use their membership for New England Aquarium and Museum Of Science. We didn't pay, we didn't wait, and we even got discount in a gift-shop. It saved us a lot of money.
Barbara and Ed are very warm, attentive, considerate and tactful people. They live next door, appeared every time we need their help, and allowed us full freedom. Their advises and recommendations made our vacation easy and joyful.
House location is great! Withrop is clean and cozy town. Wonderful view both to Ocean, Bay or Deer-Island! Please visit the cafe in Withrop for the breakfast at least once, you’ll find amiable and benevolent people. You’ll feel as at home. You can enjoy calm and comfortable stay in Withrop, but at the same time it takes only 10-15 minutes to get center of Boston by car. Even w/o car it is very simple.
You’ll love this house! We highly recommend you to stay in Barbara & Ed’s house! I hope I can visit Boston & Withrop and meet Barbara & Ed again. If every –body would run the business as Barbara and Ed then our world will become better!

New England condo is home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
From the beginning of the planning process, through departure, property owners Barbara and Ed were nothing short of delightful. Arriving in Winthrop you immediately feel like you're on vacation, then pulling up to the house you are instantly "home." The property is immaculately maintained, beautifully appointed and loaded with amenities.
Barbara is an area expert and can share so many fun facts about Winthrop, recommendations on area attractions and tips and tricks to using public transportation.
Both Barbara and Ed will make you feel like part of the family throughout your entire stay, and are always a phone call or door bell ring away if you should need anything at all.
Whether you're traveling with friends or family, this is a great place to call home. Beaches are a walk or short drive away, there are restaurants and bars nearby and Boston is a 15 minute cab or train ride. A perfect location to enjoy the quaint charm of New England while still having the opportunity to experience Boston and nearby historic towns.
Stay here and you'll be glad you did! Already planning our next visit!

Comfort and hospitality at its finest!

  • 5 of 5
Our two month stay at Seaside Escape was beyond all our expectations. Barbara and Ed provided kindness and hospitality that is unmatched in all our years of traveling and staying away from home. They made us feel welcome and a part of their family from the moment we arrived. We were in town for the birth of our child and we felt at ease and supported by the entire Survilas family. They are truly one of a kind and we will miss them greatly.

The rental was immaculate, spacious, well decorated, and very comfortable. Provided were all the amenities you would have at home; full service kitchen, comfortable beds and furniture, high quality towels and linens, TVs in 3 bedrooms, endless supply of soap, toiletries, paper products. All you need to bring is food and clothing. Everything else is provided. We also enjoyed the fast wireless internet throughout house. Also very convenient were the in-unit washer and dryer. Since we are a family of six, laundry is something we do often.

We enjoyed the modern bathroom with constant flow of hot water. Even though we are a large family, we never experienced lack of hot water. Although only one full bathroom is located in the rental, it was more than sufficient to provide accommodation to our entire family.

The rental is located in a very quaint and quiet neighborhood, within walking distance to parks, beaches, restaurants, coffee shops, and the town center. Traveling in and out of Boston was a breeze either by car or by the bus and T service. We used both car and public transportation to travel into Boston, and both methods were fast and convenient.

We were also able to take advantage of the complimentary passes to the New England Aquarium and Boston Museum of Science, which are both included with the rental. These provided great outings on days when the weather was not so great.

As great as all the amenities provided at the rental, it is the warm hospitality of Barbara and Ed that we came to enjoy the most. They were there for us whenever we needed them and we appreciated their generosity and making sure our stay was beyond memorable. Barbara and Ed were a true gift to our family.

Whether staying for the week or several months, we highly recommend Seaside Escape. We very much look forward to staying at Seaside Escape the next time we visit the Boston area.

Thank you Barbara and Ed for everything! There are no "goodbyes"...until we meet again :)
