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 :)

First of all, Barbara and Ed were great to work with, very accomodating, and very nice. The house is very clean, and most important for me, were the beds. Each bed was comfortable which makes for a much nicer stay. The house is stocked with everything you need but your clothes. The only challenging thing was the one restroom, but our party of 7 managed perfectly. The house is just about 15 minutes via the "T" from Boston, and easily accessible. There is a great little restaurant nearby called High Tide which is great for breakfast, and was very inexpensive. The house is only 3.5 miles from Logan airport, and the cab fare for 3 was 16.00 which is not bad. You can purchase a "T" pass for 18.00/person that is well worth it. You will be able to take the "T", the Buses and the Ferry as many times as you want for 7 days. We had a wonderful vacation and would definitely recommend this house. Great area, easily accessible to Boston downtown and the airport, and wonderful owners!

Barbara and Ed were very accomodating, and very nice to work with, you will not find a nicer couple. My favorite thing about the house were the beds, they were super comfortable, which makes for a much better trip. The house was clean, and the location is nice. It only takes about 15 minutes to be in Boston. Right down the road is a hole in the wall place called High Tide which had a terrific breakfast at a great price. The house literally has everything you ever would need except your clothes. There is a huge selection of DVDs to choose from, and everything you may need to cook at the house if you choose. The house is only 3.5 miles from the airport which is also very convenient. The price for a taxi from the airport to the house was 16.00 for 3 people. The only thing that is a challenge is the one restroom, but we were able to make due with our party of 7. Thank you Barbara and Ed for a wonderful trip! We loved our house and Boston!

We stayed at this house for 2 weeks and during that time had the best of a city holiday and a beach / pool holiday. Easy access into Boston via bus/ tube line with Barbara and Ed always willing to take us direct to the station.
As we did not book a car to hire the owners picked us up from the airport also very kindly took us to the bigger supermarket and after that there was a very nice local one just within walking distance of the property.
We were able to use the pool which was great after a hard days sight seeing in Boston. Winthrop had a good selection of restaurants but we used Niks Place which had great pizza and pasta dishes ideal for our teenage children and at great prices.
As for the owners they could not have been better so kind and thoughtful and left us feeling we were part of their family and we will always remember them when we think of Boston. Love to you and your family. XXX Chris jenny sophie and matthew

My husband ,two college age kids, and I can not stop talking about our week staying at Colonial Cottage. From the moment we arrived in Winthrop we felt like one of Barbara and Ed's family. Our house was pristinely clean and equipped with everything that we could need for a great week in Boston and the surrounding area. Barbara and Ed were so helpful in helping us find our way around the city and printing directions from the internet for us to use. They truly wanted us to have the best vacation possible in the city that they call home. Barbara even called the pharmacy in town for me and drove me there to get medicine for my husband. I can not say enough about the hospitality that was extended to our entire family. I would not hesitate to rent from this terrific couple again and again. This was the first rental that we have stayed at that we did not even have to bring paper towels, toilet paper, or any supplies of this nature,everything was provided.Book a week at Colonial Cottage and know that you are going to have a great vacation.

This was the perfect home away from home for us!

First, Barbara and Ed were amazing working with us on this last minute decision. She was wonderful communicating with us so that we really had no worries when we got off the plane. When we arrived we were greeted warmly (like coming home and visiting family)!

The property is perfectly located and absolutely adorable! Plenty of space for all 7 of us. We were close to Boston's transportation and only minutes from other areas we wanted to visit.

We HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone who wants to have a more homey experience while visiting the great city of Boston. I know that we can't wait for our next visit.

Thank you, Barbara and Ed for EVERYTHING!!! <3 <3 <3
