About Marisa or Ken Krall

Ken and Marisa Krall are longtime residents of the Boston area, although Marisa is originally from Spain. Having owned and operated a downtown Boston international school for over 25 years, they have housed over a thousand foreign and US guests in several properties.

Marisa or Ken Krall purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marisa or Ken Krall chose Boston

The Beacon Hill neighborhood has special significance for all long-time Bostonians; it is not unusual to find families that have called its cobblestone streets and Bristish-architecture buildings home since the early 1800s. In a 'young' county like the US, that's really saying something!

The rich fabric of history today manifests itself in the area's unparalleled elegance with cobblestone streets and a myriad of fine dining options within a five-minute walk.

The building itself houses two outstanding restaurants, a Japanese grill and sushi restaurant and a seafood bistro. Other renown dining establishments, such as the Parker House Hotel where the 'Boston cream pie' originated, are but a few minutes' walk.

We love being at the epicenter of the city's business, entertainment, and historical districts!

What makes this condo unique

21 Beacon is a unique address, centrally located and convenient to all Boston points of address. We own several properties in the Boston rental market, as well as maintain residences overseas. The addition of the 21 Beacon St. unit to the portfolio represents a signature urban destination that combines the old world elegance and charm of Beacon Hill with all the conveniences and excitement of modern urban living. Steps from shopping, restaurants, theatres, the Boston Common park, and The Freedom Trail. Looking towards the State House and Boston Common from the rooftop terrace on a warm summer evening made us realize that this property topped others that we had been considering.

We love being at the epicenter of the city's business, entertainment, and historical districts!

Great time, great location

  • 5 of 5

Marissa and Ken have a lovely condo in a very nice historical building within yards of the Mass State House. Convenient access to all of the top spots and to the T. We like to walk which is one reason we chose this location and will return here if we come back -- which we hope to do. The condo is well-furnished and quiet -- a BIG plus!! Marissa reached out just to make sure we were settling in and knew that she was there if needed, which was a very nice touch.

Beacon St in the middle of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Four women stayed here for our yearly gathering. It was fabulous! The condo was clean, had everything we needed and was well decorated too!

Everything about this place is great. We loved the rooftop view of the city. We were next to the beautiful state building and across the street from Boston Commons. Everything we wanted to see in the city was within walking distance. I can't imagine another place that could have been better for our visit.

We always visit a different city every year but this time we decided we would come back to Boston sometime and definitely stay in the same place! Thanks for a great time!!

Amazing Location! Perfect apartment.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience my husband and I had with our teen daughter staying in this location for a spring break trip. Marisa and Ken were helpful and accommodating. The location was close to "T" stops, historic sites and lovely restaurants. Cannot imagine anything better.

Lovely condo for 2 people

  • 4 of 5

Marisa and Ken, the owners of 21 Beacon Street Unit 8F, clearly care about providing nice accommodations for guests. The décor is lovely. The kitchen and bathroom are small but quite functional. The bedroom is reasonably sized with all the furnishings you need and a comfortable bed. We stayed here mid way through a 2-week trip and having laundry facilities proved ideal. Of course, the location on Beacon Street just can't be beat. It was completely convenient to everything we wanted to do. One of the concierges was also especially helpful. Marisa recommended a garage for parking our car at a good rate. It was worthwhile to do but was several blocks away. There is no place in front of the condo building to unload/reload your car before parking it in the garage. The bathroom counter space is virtually nonexistent. Other than those two negatives which were both manageable, we thoroughly enjoyed the condo and would stay here again.
