Boston condo description

Renovated, sweet one-bedroom condo. The 500 square foot, 2nd floor apartment (that's a 1st floor in Europe) in an attractive brick building is in the very center of Boston's historic district on coveted Beacon Hill. Two blocks to the Boston Common and Public Garden! One block to the shops, boutiques and restaurants on Charles Street.
New kitchen, new bathroom, spacious bedroom, lofty ceilings and plenty of light from the tall windows make this place sparkle!
Quaint brick buildings, cobblestones and gas lamps, restaurants, cafes, fabulous bakeries and cute boutiques - this is your neighborhood. Leave your car behind and walk to everything!
With its attention to detail and comfort, this condo will welcome you back after a busy day exploring all that Boston has to offer.

Start your day with a run along the river, then take in some history on the Freedom Trail. Head over to Newbury Street for serious shopping, and in the evening choose from dozens of restaurants ranging from cozy pubs to world renowned, or catch a show in the Theatre District - it is all within a few minutes scenic walk.
For an enthusiastic appraisal of the neighborhood, read what VRBO.com (HomeAway's partner) wrote about our 3-bedroom condo in the same building: www.vrbo.com/285427.

The Unique Benefits of this Condo: Location, location! Beacon Hill is the heart of this historic city, the most central location from which to explore the best of Boston. All the major tourist attractions are easily accessible, most of them within a short walk. At the same time, Beacon Hill is a real neighborhood with grocery stores, a bakery, a post office, as well as boutiques and cafes, where you will feel welcome and at home.

                                  About the owner: My husband and I hail from Ireland and France originally, and met as students at UC Berkeley. We have lived in Boston for almost 3 decades, and absolutely love the city.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Boston:
                                  Boston is beautiful, historic, the most European of American cities. It is very user-friendly, very walkable, and offers a wonderful array of activities and destinations within the city itself - something to delight everyone.
