THE BLUE PEARL IS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
I will admit I was skeptical about staying on a houseboat for 4 days (especially with 6 adults), but The Blue Pearl EXCEEDED my expectations! It was clean, spacious (considiering you're on a boat), very comfortable and well appointed. The owners have done a great job of thinking of all the creature comforts that you need to enjoy your stay. The marina offers exceptional views of the Boston skyline and Winthrop is a very quaint and neat town. Getting a cab into Boston was never a problem. Getting a cab back from Boston was a bit of a challenge because the cabbies don't like to go to Winthrop (presumably b/c its a small town and they're not terribly likely to get a return cab fare from Winthrop back to the City). But, it wasn't a problem b/c the subway station is only about 1 mile from the boat and it is a safe and easy walk. I'd definitely stay on The Blue Pearl again.

FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Blue Pearl for 3 days while visiting Boston for the first time. With three boys 16, 14, 12 we were looking for something different & we found it. They all loved being on the water. We loved sitting on the deck in the morning and at night. There was enough space for all of us. The pictures are pretty accurate portrayal of reality. Make sure you walk to the end of the far dock near sunset for great views of the Boston skyline. The owners had everything we needed at the boat. Check-in, etc. was a breeze. Free parking is a huge benefit & we used the hospital shuttle almost exclusively - which was easy and quick. We LOVED Boston! It was made that much better by our stay on the Blue Pearl.

P.S. There is a gentle (and sometimes slightly more than that) rocking. It took a couple of our family members two days to not feel it anymore when we were standing still.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
The neighbours at the marina were very friendly. The Blue Pearl is in a beautiful location and Deb's description of the boat and amenities were exactly as described, thank you. The boat was very clean. All the details of the area and transportation was great, thank you very much. We used the water boat to cross from downtown to the Navy Yard as well as the trolley which were very close and accessible. The kids loved the loft and your beds were very comfy! The only thing missing for us at the boat was more time :)
Thank you very much Deb!

A FUN PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I decided to visit Boston and see all the sights. We chose the Blue Pearl as an alternative to a hotel, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was clean, comfy, well stocked, and very peaceful. Deb had given us accurate directions and provided helpful suggestions for groceries, etc. We took a cab from the airport and traveled via trolley, water taxi, subway and our own feet! We enjoyed everything along the Freedom Trail , Trolley Tour, JFK Library, the markets, restaurants and took a ferry to Salem. The weather was great until the last day when we had storms. I was surprised at how little movement/rocking there was, most of the time not even realizing we were on a boat. The neighbors were polite and the area was very quiet. We found the people of Boston to be very friendly and accommodating and enjoyed seeing all the dog walkers.
I would definitely recommend the Blue Pearl.

GREAT HOUSEBOAT

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Pearl is a really neat, clean, comfortable, and fun place to stay. It has a lot of extra touches, like a single serve coffee pot with multiple types of coffees and tooth paste, shampoo, and lotions; that are really appreciated. The TV worked! Deb from DebCo was terrific to work with on the rental. We arrived the day of the marathon bombings and she went out of her way to make sure all was okay with us. We highly recommend this houseboat for rental.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN A HOUSEBOAT...WHO KNEW!

  • 4 of 5
Our first time in a houseboat and how cool it was. Plenty of room for the two of us. Relaxing at night was relaxing on the water and had all the comforts of home. All of the details before hand and Deb's info made it so easy to pack our bags and our cooler. The boat was immaculate upon arrival and very welcoming. Loved being able to have breakfast in my comfy clothes under the sun before my hectic day of sightseeing, and BBQ'ing on the deck in the eve was such an experience. Other renters along the walkway were very pleasant.

Got to do the Freedom Trail and a day trip to Salem. Not bad for a long weekend. We parked our car in the provided space and never needed it. We were able to walk and take the ferry and train everywhere.

The ease of making arrangements with Deb made things go so smoothly.
Highly recommend this to anyone traveling to the area.
