Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 2-4

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.

Please note, there is no washer/dryer in the apartment, but there are plenty of laundry facilities on Charles Street.

The Boston Common Garage at Zero Charles St is just steps away.

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.

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.

Excellent Beacon Hill Find

  • 5 of 5

Loved having a special place in the heart of Beacon Hill. The one bedroom apartment was the perfect way to experience a Boston weekend. It was clean, inviting, and had everything needed for a home away from home. Caroline, the owner was amazing to work with and promptly responded to all my questions.

What a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This place was adorable, quaint, and felt very much like you were getting to embrace the unique feel of Boston. My friend and I are both History nerds. We came to experience Boston for the first time. I loved every minute of our stay. Caroline, the owner, was super helpful to walk me through a small little difficulty. We loved the area, we felt safe and we were walking distance to most things. There was a wonderful Bakery (Tatte) and a coffee shop both very close. We enjoyed Charles Street a lot and the apartment was only one street away. I highly recommend it. I slept on the couch and didn't bother with the sofa bed but I noticed that she had a memory foam topper for it. The couch was plenty comfortable. My friend slept in the queen sized bed and said it was "ok". The closet was full of comfortable and fresh smelling linens. The kitchen is very small be we only had coffee and dessert in our room.

Location location location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our first trip to Boston. We used the trolley as our transportation to see the sites. Charles Street had everything else we needed. Compact and clean, the apartment was perfect for the two of us.

Great stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights, and it was our home away from home. The apartment was well equipped with everything you would need and was in a fantastic neighbourhood, one block over from Charles street and a short 2 minute walk to the Cheers bar!! We walked everywhere from here. Caroline was a gem to work with and very accommodating to our needs! I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!

Best location in Boston. Quiet, well appointed apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We really liked our stay. Wonderful location. We walked almost everywhere. The bedroom is spacious and very quiet. Lots of natural light. The living room is a nice place to relax. Kitchen has most of what you need. Lots of great places to eat on Cambridge Street. We even ordered take out from the Paramount. We would definitely stay again next time we’re in Boston.
