Comfortable, home-like feel and superb location

  • 5 of 5

This was a superb location for enjoying Boston without a car. The neighbourhood felt really home-like. We climbed the Bunker Hill monument for a great view.

Great food options at local restaurants and easy shopping all in walking distance.

This is apartment is located in a great area with access to public transport, Logan International airport and historic Boston right at your finger tips! Boston is such a walkable city and the Freedom Trail is virtually right out your door. Our host was wonderful and flexible about our check in. Overall it was a great stay and would welcome the chance to come again!

Great long weekend in Boston

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was comfortable and so clean! Everything we needed was there. King bed was so comfortable also. Kitchen was well stocked. Hosts were friendly and accommodating. Charlestown is quiet and quaint. It's only a short walk to anything you need, and public transportation is great. We would stay there again. Great experience.

Wonderful Place to Stay in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 of us staying - my husband and I and our 15 year old niece. We used to live in Boston but this was the first time our niece had ever visited. We took her on the freedom trail which started up the street at Bunker Hill and then through Boston. There are so many places to eat nearby and the condo is within walking distance of everything you need. We took the subway a couple of times in town, as well as a water taxi near the USS Constitution. Our last night we walked over the bridge into th North End and had a fabulous dinner in a wonderful Italian restaurant near Paul Revere's house.

The condo was very clean and well stocked with everything needed. Cynthia and Arthur are great hosts. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay as it is so well situated you wouldn't need a car to get around. There is a trolley tour that starts near the USS Constitution that takes you around the city and you can hop on and off at any time. We plan to stay here again if we come back to Boston. I would highly recommend this place to stay.

Wonderful location and friendly hostess

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Charlestown! Just down the street from Bunker Hill and the Freedom Trail, this property was the perfect location for us. It was more quaint than staying inside Boston and gave us great access to Boston to explore - both by foot and the T. The unit was clean and comfortable and Cindy was friendly and gave us great recommendations. We would definitely consider staying here again if we make it back to the Boston area. Our only regret is that we stayed so busy that we didn't allot any time to use the outdoor patio.
