Property description

We've been renting high-quality furnished accommodations for over 8 years, exclusively in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. This location is stellar, just 3 minutes walking distance to Boston Common, the Freedom Trail, an organic grocery store, nice wine shops, restaurants and many more conveniences and Boston attractions.

We do not charge extra for cleaning, credit card fees nor security deposits. Currently there are no extra taxes. A booking/service fee may be added by the respective listing agency and is out of our control.

Welcome to an elegant one bedroom apartment in a building from the late 1800's, located at the very top of the Hill and the center of downtown Boston. This luxury accommodation includes a separate bedroom with a vintage quality queen-sized bed, a spacious open plan kitchen and living area and a bathroom with high-end fittings and custom marble shower.

Beautifully restored original windows that can be raised with one finger, exposed beams and brick and a charming little decorative fireplace capture the time period. Located on the 4th floor rear of the building for a quiet stay and nice afternoon sun. This is a recently100% renovated high-end boutique apartment designed by a master architect and built by master craftsmen.

Named "Luci Bella", this apartment derives its inspiration from the antique Italian bed sconces. With a leaning towards classic Italian design, and an eclectic mix of fixtures and lamps and old windows, we've had fun creating a comfortable and very livable home away from home.

Sleeping: The bedroom has a high quality queen size bed with plush firm Beautyrest mattress; down pillows and nice linens. In the living room, the day bed is an organic bamboo-fiber mattress twin-size for one separate person with the same nice linens and pillows.

Electronics: Excellent wi-fi in living room and bedroom. Living room has 40" new HD television w/ internet connectivity for Amazon, Hulu, Sony Unlimited, Pandora, etc. music and video streaming services. Subscriptions not included but log-in your own or sign-up. Cable is standard plus package (CBS, ABC, CNN, CNBC, ESPN, HBO, Showtime, etc.) DVD/CD Player. A window unit air conditioner in the living room during the summer season, fancy fan year-round. Telephone provided with free U.S. and Canada calling.

Bathroom/Kitchen: Shower (no bathtub) with very high-end rosebud overhead spray and separate hand shower option. Hair-dryer in the linen closet plus all towels. 4 burner gas stove, Bosch silent dishwasher, standing refrigerator/freezer. Microwave, coffee maker, iron & board.

Eco-Green: Aside from a great example of small-space design in a location that promotes walking and public transportation; bed linens and pillows are Eco-certified and cleaning agents, paper supplies and soaps/shampoos are earth-friendly whenever possible. We recycle. Cloth shopping totes are hanging at the door and the electricity is generated from wind. We re-used old wood from the demolition where possible, the insulation layers use old shredded jeans, and we installed a cork sub-layer for softer floors and additional noise mitigation.

Essentials: No smoking, no pets, no parking (ask), sleeps 3 maximum (no exceptions), not suitable for small children. Includes all utilities and furnishings. The owner has written a very detailed manual for the apartment and a personal guide for all services and restaurants in the neighborhood.

Expectations: Please note that Beacon Hill is on a hill in an urban historical zone, so there is a fair amount of walking if staying in this neighborhood. The apartment is a 4th floor walk-up (3 flights of stairs) without an elevator and may not be suitable for all guests.

We have other accommodations in the Beacon Hill neighborhood with different profiles, so just ask.
