Housed on the third floor of our grand 1890 Victorian home in Boston's thriving South Boston neighborhood, we are conveniently located on East Broadway 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, and a sizeable eat-in kitchen. The unit is basic, providing 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. As only the 7th listing on Boston/VRBO over 10 years ago (out of nearly 300 listings currently) 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 - or you can rent our parking spot for $15/night if necessary.. Finally, our 14 year old daughter is 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.

Located on a street rated 'one of the 10 best' to live on in Mass, our South Boston unit is 6 blocks from the beach, and 3 blocks from the sight of the first Revolutionary War battle - Dorchester Heights (also the highest natural point in Boston). Surrounded by several of Boston's newest/hottest restaurants and ample shopping, we have a bus stop at the corner of our block, and the BCEC Convention Center just over a mile.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Married with 3 children ages 20, 18 & 14, we moved here 15 years ago (2001) from Redondo Bch, Southern California. Donna is originally from the Boston area, but moved to LA for work after graduate school where she met and fell in love with Max - a native Southern Californian she married in 1994. Seven years later, Donna convinced Max to move back to her Boston routes - and by the winter of 2015 they weren't sure what they were thinking! But seriously, Boston has been a great family urban setting to raise our children - and we love the city life!
Why the Owner Chose Telegraph Hill, Boston, MA, USA:
Even with 5 of us, this large house with 4 floors was always more space than we necessarily needed. The top floor was originally built with separate access and often operated as an autonomous level, so we continued renting it as such when we moved in. Since we have often traveled via VRBO/Homeaway, we thought it would be great to similarly offer short-term rentals instead of the traditional month-to-month or yearly leasing. We've always had much success renting our top floor through VRBO, and have met so many wonderful people from around the world. It's truly a labor love!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our longevity! We were only the 7th property listed on Boston's VRBO website in 2005, long before it became popular. In light of increased competition, and with over 250 properties now listed in Boston, we remain one of the busier properties - and we're one of the few with such longevity that has all 5-star reviews. Hopefully we're doing something right:):)
