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.

Why Nelson Emmons chose Harbor View / Orient Heights
We are close to all that Boston has to offer, either by car or public transportation.
What makes this Villa unique
The sheer size and location on Boston Harbor was one of the most attractive features that lured us to purchase the Villa. It's ease to public transportation connecting all the city has to offer without the need of a car, was a real game changer. The view from the sun porch and in the summer months having a glass of wine on the upper balcony is delightful while watching the planes come and go. It is similar to an orchestrated symphony.

We stayed at the Villa at Eastie for a long weekend/mini family vacation. The owners were very accommodating when our arrival was later than usual check-in. It is a beautiful home with well-appointed, comfortable rooms. They think of little extras like info on local restaurants , lots of games and DVDs, and binoculars to view the arrivals and departures at Logan airport located just across the bay. Although close to the airport, the planes are not very loud and not disturbing for sleeping or relaxing. A few short blocks to the Blue T subway makes downtown Boston easily accessible in only a few minutes. (Save the driving hassle and parking expense and take the subway!) Thanks for sharing your home for a lovely weekend!
Wonderful stay at the Harborfront Villa!
We absolutely loved our stay! The house is clean and beautiful. It’s a short walk to the train station and a close commute right into Boston. We loved being by the water and so close to the airport that we could watch the airplanes. There were beautiful views from the sunroom and off the balcony. We spent an afternoon at the beach, which we were also able to walk to. The kitchen was well-stocked and the furnishings were very nice. We loved the close proximity to anything we needed. We ate at a delicious, fresh seafood restaurant that was right in the area. Nelson was really accommodating and even met us over at the house to check in at a very late hour. It was a very fun stay and we would return there in a heartbeat!
Lovely weekend. It felt like a home away from home.
We had a very nice 3 nights in the villa. It was very homey. My first thought was that I couldn't go a long weekend without a TV in the downstairs, but with the view of the airport we didn't miss TV.
The home has some unique artwork as well.
Our only suggestion would be that they should put a shower curtain in the bathroom.
We welcome your visit and would invite you to stay with us again
Great place to Stay
Perfect location, easy to get to downtown and be out of the hustle and bustle in the evenings. Beds were very comfortable. Owners were very quick to respond to all questions and offer recommendations when asked. Home was clean and well appointed. Would stay here again.
We loved meeting and sharing our love of music and photography. Hope you can visit again and stay a bit longer.
Such a great vacation!
Our family cannot thank you enough for the use of your home and it's warmth that surrounded us. The paintings within, the planes, the weather. The skyline, and all that is Boston made this one of our favorites! The Remons
We thank you and can't wait for your return vacation.
The Villa was a wonderful place to stay on our recent trip to Boston! We enjoyed the large rooms and all the great amenities! We especially loved the sunroom where we started each day and ended each day! It is located near the subway so we did not have to drive into Boston. We used the Suffolk Downs station because we could park our car there. We enjoyed the harbor, the action from the airport, and the television in each bedroom. Even though the Villa is located across the harbor from the airport, we could not hear the noise from the planes because the house is quite soundproof. Nelson was a great host! He met us at the Villa and gave us lots of ideas about places to eat, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would return to the Villa again if we were visiting in Boston.
I really looked forward to your visit through your thorough communications and responsiveness to payment and Villa Rules and careful consideration of our home. We really look forward to your return to enjoy Boston. Thanks Again and see you all soon!
