Boston apartment description

Housed on the third floor of our grand 1890 Victorian home in one of the most prestigious South Boston neighborhoods, we are conveniently located on East Broadway (voted one of Top 10 streets to live on in Boston.com May 2012 - ) with a bus stop literally at the corner of our block. Adjacent to the 'village' area, everything is safely within walking distance including the BCEC, restaurants, the subway (Red line Broadway Stop), grocery/drug stores, parks, Dorchester Heights historical monument, and the beach. This 1,000 square-ft immaculate, spacious 4-room apartment + full bath has its own separate entrance with city/water views, central air, wifi, a sizable eat-in kitchen and access to a basement pool room. The unit is simple, to provide a great value for a clean, comfortable, well-stocked space. The owners who occupy the downstairs make every effort to make the process easy & straightforward from start to finish for all renters. For 8 years now, we've thoroughly enjoyed this labor of love and all the wonderful people we've met.

We host families, tourists, actors, marathoners, and corporate clients - all enjoy our convenient location to downtown, the airport, public transport and Boston's main attractions including the Freedom Trail/Boston Common, Fenway Park, Children's Museum, JFK Library/Museum, Harvard..... all within 2 - 3 miles from here. There is no need to rent a car unless traveling well outside the city limits, although there is free on-street parking. Uniquely, our 2 oldest teenagers are available to babysit.

Finally, on rare occasions we will rent the entire house to parties of 7 or more. Please call the listed phone number for further information.
