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.

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.

Wonderful stay

  • out of 5
I stayed with a group of 6 people in September. Nelson was great to work with and showed us the ins and outs of the home upon our arrival. With 6 adults we had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The house is beautiful and is right on Boston Harbor. The views were incredible, at night coming home to the view of the city skyline was so nice. The house was full of character and charm. Nelson is an artist and has filled the home with unique artwork and personal touches. I am picky about beds and the beds were all very comfortable. The house is in a safe neighborhood, walking distance to the T. We highly recommend this house for a family or group.

Owner's Response: We also love a good nights sleep and are particular about the comfort of the beds and the sheets. When the beds are past their useful life we replace them with a comfortable new box spring and mattress and not a discount knockoff. One of the bedrooms we put a memory foam topper and have found it also to be quite comfortable. Our sheets are top of the line, without going over the top. Thanks for your comments about the views and ease of getting around. Most of all, as I sound redundant, you and your friends have cared very well for the Villa and it's contents and we are forever grateful. Good luck in your travels, wherever they may take you!

Lovely home excellent location

  • 4 out of 5
This was a lovely family home, extremely comfortable for four adults but a greater number of people may have had a problem with only one bathroom. Excellent location, just a short walk to the station which took you directly to Boston centre. We enjoyed the views in the evening over a glass of wine, very relaxing. Would recommend the property.

Great stay

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our time at the Villa. Nelson was wonderful to work with, he answered all my questions in a very timely manner. The villa accommodated six people very comfortably. The kitchen was well stocked. The location is convenient to the subway and it was nice not having to rent a car. We actually found ourselves looking forward to getting back to the house to watch the airplanes landing and taking off. Thanks for a great stay:)

We stayed here for our annual family vacation. Our party was comprised of 5 adults and 2 teenagers and there was plenty of room and we were quite comfortable. It was so nice spending our evenings together talking and playing games at the dining room table. The location was perfect...just a short walk to the subway.

Owner's Response: It is always nice to spend time together as a family without having to go from floor to floor room to room to organize a get together with family members at the snack bar or breakfast restaurant. Like living at home but on vacation. Thanks for your Boston visit at the Villa and come back soon, we would love to see you!
Best,

Great accommodations off-the-beaten-path in Boston

  • 5 out of 5
The Villa is absolutely beautiful and perfectly outfitted. Its furnishings are gorgeous, matched only by the Boston skyline view. We had everything we needed. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children and we all loved the villa! We loved returning to the Villa every night after long days in the city to unwind and enjoy the views from the upper balcony. Who knew airplane spotting could be so mesmerizing and relaxing? It was delightful. We enjoyed the croquet set, the bikes, and the kayaks too! The commute to Boston is super easy from the new Orient Heights station. Most evenings we carried in charcuterie from the North End, but Belle Isle Seafood and Blackstrap BBQ in Winthrop also were wonderful and within easy walking distance. We love the neighborhood vibe -- lots of strolling, dog-walking, biking. The jet skiers and tubers were fun to watch as they played in the shadows of the planes at Logan. The noise from Logan was no issue inside the house. The house is well-insulated and our sleep was not disturbed at all. Nelson and Madeline were very helpful and responsive hosts. We would return in a heartbeat.

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!
