HARBORFRONT VILLA, CHARMING MIX OF CONTEMPORARY AND TURN OF THE CENTURY ELEGANCE

Boston Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms,1.5 baths accomodates eight adults,one or two infants

The Villa at Eastie overlooks the harbor and shipping channels, early morning lobstermen can be seen from the sunroom hauling their traps, as well as the ships coming to port. Plane bugs (id book) will love the spectacular view of Logan Int. Airport. At the end of the street is Constitution Beach. There are bicycles and kayaks for the adventurous or relax in the fountain garden. Smell the sea breeze and reminisce about the politics that must have been discussed in this former Senators home. Entertain in the formal dining room under the crystal chandelier or relax and read a book on one of the balconies overlooking the harbor. The Blue line(public trans) is only a few blocks away and offers a ride to the airport station and free shuttle bus to your terminal, a few more stops and you are downtown for world class shopping, restaurants, museums and the Swan boats ride. Arrange for a daylong antique 'pickers' tour and our driver will take you to the hidden spots where only the dealers buy.

CONVENIENT, FRIENDLY & WONDERFUL LOCATION

Convenient, friendly & wonderful location
  • 5 of 5
If you like airplanes, this is an awesome place to stay. My 3 year old son was amazed by the view of Logan Airport. The owners were wonderful and met us at the home to explain the " in's & out's" of the home. Bedrooms/Beds were comfortable & had plenty of space for spreading out luggage. Very close to the T for easy transportation to the city!
We would highly recommend this home really to anyone looking for a spot to travel with a large family. We had 6 Adults & 2 kids & it worked perfectly.
Thank you again!

PLAN TO RETURN

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 7 enjoyed staying at this lovely home. The owners met us there, provided a tour and then left us to appreciate all the amenities. The view of the lake is lovely from the sun room and upstairs balcony. All rooms were well-furnished and comfortable; kitchen was well-equipped and dining room also had everything needed to serve a large group elegantly. Our only regret was not having time to just enjoy the house, as we only had two nights there and other activities planned. We highly recommend this property - room for parking 2 vehicles or convenient to public transportation so could also get by without a vehicle. Excellent restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Kayaks can be put into the lake across the road from the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your visit and care of our home. There is just one small correction, the "lake" is really Boston Harbor. Please come visit again, I bet you had a blast in Boston and we would love to host your visit again!
Thank You,
Nelson

GREAT STAY IN BOSTON

  • 5 of 5
We had a great family vacation in Boston and our stay in the Harborfront Villa made it an even more memorable one. We took the subway everywhere and the subway station is a short walk from the house. The house is located in a wonderful walkable neighborhood and we had the feeling of actually being part of Boston (the owner at the corner butcher shop even asked if we were new to the neighborhood). The home’s owners met us and were extremely gracious and showed us around the house on our arrival. The sunroom was great for early morning breakfast and watching the planes takeoff from the airport. All of the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and everyone enjoyed having wifi available in the house. The house is even more beautiful in person and we will be looking to stay here again next time we are in Boston.

GORGEOUS!

  • 5 of 5
OMG! The villa was everything and more the HomeAway site said it was. We arrived by train from New York so we didn't have a vehicle but, everything was just a few minutes walk from the house. The rail, grocery store, laundry, CVS, several restaurants.

The house is so open and welcoming, you just feel like your at home. The decor and furniture are beautifully done, as is the artwork. After spending a large part of our day out sightseeing, it was so awesome to get back to the house, grab a glass of wine and sit outside on the upstairs deck.

Although the house is situated across from the airport runway, we never had an issue with the sound from planes taking off and landing.

Absolutely perfect!

Thank you Nelson and Madeline for your hospitality and sharing your home!

CHARMING OLD HOME.

  • 5 of 5
When I first entered the home I was a little taken back by how old it was and a bit of a "musty" smell. But, within the hour we were all enjoying the charm, the views and the character of the home. We loved staying here and found the home to be comfortable, clean and to fit the needs of our group of 8 family members. This beats staying in a hotel or a newer, less charming home by a Colorado mile!

We drove to the Suffolk Downs subway stop (about 5 minute drive), parked and were able to access everything that we wanted to do in the city easily. The near-by Orient Heights station is closed and being re-built and would have been a 5 minute walk, but the other was no problem. We drove to a near-by grocery for food and walked to a near-by drug store. Belle Island seafood was the perfect spot for casual dining and was very affordable. We hope that all of our experiences in vacation rentals will be as positive as this one was!
