5/5 Excellent

Unique Stay
This was a cool and unique experience. What a different way to enjoy Boston.

4/5 Good

Unique picturesque calming
We came to Boston for the Marathon the Blue Pearl is away from the bustle but close enough to walk, cycle or Uber downtown depending on weather and what you want to take in along the way. You are close the The Garden and Little Italy which are just over the bridge. Relax on the deck with morning coffee. The kitchen is well equipped for making breakfast and it’s lovely inside. Would definitely come back

Beautiful, Safe and Convenient Area
The house boat was clean and cute and very convenient to all of the sights we wanted to see in Boston. We walked to Little Italy for dinner a few times and also rented the Blue Bikes to get around as well as the trolley tour. My kids called staying on the boat “camping” and it did feel a little like camping- a bit rustic. I loved how safe the dock and boat felt and loved falling asleep to the gentle rocking. The neighbors were very friendly. We had perfect weather and were comfortable with the windows open so can’t say if the heat or a/c worked well. For a family of 6 it was nice to have access to the boat house where multiple people could shower at once rather than wait for the single shower on the boat. We parked our car and didn’t drive again until we left Boston- that’s how easy it is to get around. There were some quirks that we didn’t address with the owners because we are pretty laid back and didn’t care about the wi-fi not working- we were so busy exploring all we really cared about doing on the boat was sleeping. However- I have full confidence the owners would have resolved any issues for us quickly- we didn’t bother them because none of the issues were that important to us. Overall I would recommend staying here. It was unique and cozy and a great experience!

5/5 Excellent

Houseboat fun!
We loved the boat. Comfortable and everything you need! More than that we loved the friendly little pier community! Great location and walkable/Uber to all of Boston’s sights!
