Property description

This listing is the upper two floors of a five story Victorian townhouse. The entire house is also available - VRBO# 833103. The house is on one of Boston's most beautiful streets - a residential one way street of mostly single family homes. Within a few minutes walk are the acclaimed restaurants and coffee houses of the South End, quaint stores, and a large farmer's market. Amtrak and the Boston subway and commuter rail system, bus stops, Copley Square and the Prudential shopping malls, and the luxury boutiques of Newbury Street are located within a short walk. The airport is only 15 minutes away.

The first floor has a kitchen, full bath with a victorian bathtub, washer/dryer, dining area, and living room with a gas fireplace and large plasma tv and wifi. The second floor has a master bedroom with a queen bed and a large guest room with two double beds. Both bedrooms have cable TV. This floor has a full bath with a large shower with a rainhead and handheld sprayer. An extra small room can accommodate a twin airbed and/or a port-a-crib (both available on request).

Guests will enter through a shared front door with a digital keypad. The staircase belongs only to the apt and there are two flights up to the entrance. The apartment has a fully furnished kitchen, bed and bath linens and towels, and a Sonos music system. The kitchen has pots and pans, china and cutlery for 8, coffee and tea pots, basic utensils, a microwave, JennAir 4 burner gas stove, and a toaster oven. Additional kitchen appliances such as Cuisinart, a Kitchen Aid Mixer, and specialty items can be requested.
