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.
We are close to all that Boston has to offer, either by car or public transportation.
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.
Madeline and Nelson:
It certainly has been a whirlwind since we returned from Boston and I
apologize for the delay in getting this out to you.
Thank you very much for opening your home to all of us. We had a most
enjoyable time. Your home is comfortable and so lovely and charming. We
enjoyed every aspect of your house and we met some of your neighbours who
are equally as nice and as friendly.
Going back to Boston and the Cape was reliving my childhood and one that
was both refreshing and sad at the same time. Progress has certainly taken
over and a lot has changed.....thank goodness the character of the City and
the people have remained the same.....just as friendly and charming as ever.
I never thought the road to the Cape would ever be complete. When I was
growing up it was the worst road in the world. What a wonderful change
seeing the road complete. The ride we had was wonderful, no traffic and
smooth sailing all the way. The T has improved as well and we used it a
lot. Downtown Crossing has a new grocery store called Roche
Bros.....fantastic place. We shopped there quite a bit. Their produce was
amazing as was their Butcher Shop......the desserts, we could eat them but
preferred the North End for that....the walk justified all the Italian
We cooked in two nights and had so much fun with that. I have always
wanted a gas cook top and finally had the chance to use one. We set the
smoke alarm off and you should have seen us. We didn't know if you were
hard wired to the Fire Hall......thank goodness you were not. We laughed
so hard we cried. Six grown adults fanning the smoke (very minimal, I was
doing a chicken stir fry and accidentally put in olive oil vs
peanut...olive oil does not like high heat) when we all decided to open the
windows......we are still laughing about that today. The Fire Department
did not come, the house is still standing, we had a good laugh and we had a
great dinner that night...all is well with the world.
Your paintings are spectacular, the decor was perfect, your neighbourhood
was so friendly and welcoming. The planes captivated us every night and
during breakfast every morning.....we miss them but did get educated in the
flight path of Logan International.
We managed to walk the entire Freedom Trail, tour Cambridge, go into Mass
General and the museum to visit my cousins, take in a game at Fenway and
tour all the Cape along with Plymouth. We walked about 10 miles a day
Four ladies from GA used the Villa as our headquarters for a week in Boston. The home is lovely, and as pictured. The original art throughout was stunning! We used the T to easily go into the city, but decided to rent a car to use for day trips (warning: the rental process at Logan was a nightmare the day we arrived. Consider renting off site?). Nelson was patient and kind in responding to questions and requests, as well as in dealing with our late arrival. The property would rate 5 stars if laundry facilities were in the house and Internet more reliable. Highly recommended!
The house was absolutely beautiful and the rooms fit our needs for 7 people staying there . Location of the home was perfect for access to the "T" so we didn't have to rent a car. Nelson and his wife were very accommodating and could answer any questions we had. I'd highly recommend their home for a stay in Boston.
Everything about this charming harbor front villa in East Boston was top quality. I loved meeting the owners and hearing some of the history of the house and the views were beyond spectacular. My sons enjoyed watching the planes come and go as well as taking the kayaks out onto the Harbor. We stayed over the fourth of July weekend and had a great view of fireworks from all over the city on three nights. Was sad to leave it behind!
Awesome property! Nelson was very helpful!
We consider ourselves fortunate in that we have stayed at this home twice. It is as perfect as we remembered it from 4 years ago. Couldn't ask for more from the home and location is great. Hope we can return soon
Our family came together in Boston to run in and watch the marathon. It was the perfect locale for a reunion weekend, as there was plenty of comfortable space for us to lounge around and simply enjoy each other's company. The amenities were plentiful and modern. The beds were clouds of comfort for both pre and post race slumbers. We also enjoyed soaking in the jetted tub to soothe our aching muscles following our trek from Hopkinton to Boston. The villa is located within walking distance of restaurants, stores and the T. We especially liked the proximity to Faneuil Hall and the North End. Nelson and Madeline were charming hosts sharing their favorite spots and history of the home and neighborhood. We are already planning our next reunion at the villa for the 2017 Boston Marathon! Thank you Nelson and Madeline for sharing your charming home.
