Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Boston - The Villa at Eastie

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.

Why Nelson Emmons chose Boston

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Madeline,dear Nelson

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your splendid home. The exclusive atmosphere, the great view and the comfortable beds really add to a great vacation experience. Today we are heading for Conneticut and we'll be back in about two weeks.

Thanks Again from the Baliss family & Dorando family

"Rent This House in Bean Town" Brilliant.

  • 5 of 5

Nelson and Madeline are truly lovely people who delivered a vacation property above and beyond our expectations. Attention to detail for travellers was a top priority for them as every amenity was available from kitchen to bedrooms and everything in between. House is beautifully decorated, beds are extremely comfortable, each room comes with robes and towels. You are right on the water! There are shops within walking distance for food and spirits. The Blue T (metro) is a two minute walk so no car is required. Blue T (5 stops) you are right in the thick of Boston. Boston folks are so hospitable and Nelson and Madeline are great Boston ambassadors. There is an information portfolio in the office that gives you information on local restaurants and metro maps etc. We would like to come back and see Boston in the Summertime and this property is going to be our number one choice. To summarize, location is aesthetically perfect, home is 5 star for amenities and you get the luxury hotel perks with 10 times more space. Thank you, Merci Beaucoup and Slante for a great stay during St Patrick's Day activities.

Absolutely loved this place. Great view, comfortable rooms. I stay in hotels about 1/4 of my life, this was such a refreshing change of pace.

A fabulous holiday helped by a fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night and Nelson was patiently waiting to show us around a spectacular home. The location was excellent, the T minutes walk away, the airport very accessible. The neighborhood was great, we joined in the Halloween trick or treating and found everyone fun and welcoming. A wonderful house is not enough if the area is lacking but this isn't. All local shops we attended were great, my favorite being Milano's Deli - a fabulous Texas steak sandwich.

The house has everything you need however a downstairs TV for family viewing at night would have been good (we have teenagers!). Everyone comments about the beds, they are superb! By the end of our first full day, we started to feel very comfortable with the house, making ourselves at home. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils if you want to eat at home, you can probably cook whatever you fancy. All the rooms are large which allows a group of 7 to be together without being cramped and you can even get some peace and quiet if you need to escape. I would definitely stay here again if we return to Boston.

Nelson and Madeline were quick to return our safety deposit which is appreciated after so much shopping.

Many thanks for providing all the little touches that make a home from home.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful to have some friends from Yorkshire England. At first I wasn't quite sure and mimicked a cockney accent which I was quick to realize wasn't even close, to the Yorkshire accent. It is just wonderful. It was a pleasure to have young children enjoy the festivities with trick or treating in the neighborhood and I loved the left behind carved pumpkins. Such great talent! Thanks and we are working on turning the office into a TV room. More to come. Thanks

Wonderful stay

  • 5 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! Nelson and Madeline

Lovely home excellent location

  • 4 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 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:)
