The 10 best Airbnbs in Boston, from a Beacon Hill townhouse to a historic Charlestown apartment
Unlike Boston’s best hotels, most of which are tightly clustered in and around the central Back Bay neighborhood, Boston’s best Airbnbs are found throughout the city. This helps visitors who explore the city to move around and get to know the city more broadly and precisely.
Our list of favorite Boston apartment rentals — and a few homes, too — covers areas from the bustling restaurant and boutique-filled residential South End to the quiet, townhouse-filled slopes of Bunker Hill. It delves deeper into the southern reaches of the city, to also encompass Dorchester, as well as bustling Roxbury, one of Boston’s oldest largely African-American neighborhoods. We also venture across the Charles River to Somerville, Boston’s equivalent to Brooklyn. And we have plenty of downtown vacation rentals, including Back Bay and neighboring Beacon Hill. Read on for 10 of our favorite Airbnb rentals in Boston.
While we haven’t stayed at all of the Airbnbs featured, unless otherwise noted, these listings are verified based on Superhost status, amenities, location, previous guest reviews, and decor.
