Why Therese Byrne chose Boston

The character, Victorian brownstone architecture and history of Back Bay drew me to this neighborhood (similar to where I had lived in Manhattan), this distinguished brownstone and elegant, spacious duplex condo.

What makes this condo unique

Back Bay -- considered one of the best-preserved examples of 19th-century urban design in the United States — is in the heart of Boston. Commonwealth Avenue, Boston’s grand parkway, just blocks to the beautiful Charles River Esplanade and activities (boating, concerts, running, biking), Public Gardens (first botanical garden and swan boats), chic shopping and cafes along newbury as well as historical sites and architecture. Take a sail or an amfibious Duckboat ride around historic Boston, North End, Charlestown. Walk the Freedom Trail. Walk or take the T to take in a Red Sox game at Fenway Park, or go to the Waterfront to tour and dine waterside. Enjoy the best Boston has to offer like the locals, without a car.

Beautiful condo in the heart of Back bay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo! It is very well situated and very close to many touristic attractions and in walking distance to great shopping, restaurants and cafes. Therese was there to meet us on our arrival and went through everything with us to make sure we had a great stay. The condo is very comfortable for 3 guests and we will definitely stay there again!

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at 116 Commonwealth. The location was perfect for touring Boston proper. It was nice to be in a neighborhood surrounded by shops and parks and restaurants. And the condo afforded us the space we couldn't have gotten in a hotel.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great location and property was as described in the listing. Walking distance to tourist attractions and safe place to stay. Pretty home and we used services described with grocery delivery and uber which made our visit easier. We liked having kitchen and laundry. The owner was accessible and I would recommend to others.
