NORTH END STUDIO CONDO! BEST LOCATION! NEAR FREEDOM TRAIL!

Boston Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Studio, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 2-3 Perfect for 2 adults and 2 small children!

An excellent alternative to pricey hotels, our fully-furnished North End fourth floor walk-up condo has been refurbished to the highest standards, while maintaining the charm. It has a kitchen with granite countertops, where you can prepare a complete meal. The full-size bathroom with tile tub/shower, and tile floors, has a granite-topped vanity. The floors in the remainder of the unit are refinished oak. Our furniture includes a very comfortable Queen Murphy bed with a new Tempur-Pedic mattress, a full sleeper sofa with a memory foam mattress, a dining table for two, and a wall mounted 32-inch plasma TV plus DVD player. There is cable tv and wireless internet. The unit is very clean and well-maintained. Iron, ironing board, alarm clock radio, a child's pack and play, and hair dryer are provided. This condo is perfect for 2 adults and 2 small children.

We usually have a five-night minimum, but if there are four or fewer days available between bookings, we will rent for fewer nights, depending upon the number of days available. Please send an inquiry or email us if you have questions.

PLEASE CHECK OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR FOR DATES!

Boston's North End is a diner's mecca, with more than 100 restaurants and bakeries only a short distance from our condo. Whether you desire authentic Italian or more contemporary dining, you can find it all in the North End.

We are an easy commute to Boston's Logan International Airport as well as to Amtrak stations. It is just a ten minute cab ride from the Airport and a ten minute ride to the Amtrak Trains to New York. The 'T' goes to both. You do NOT need a car to get around the city if you are staying in the North End.

PLEASE LOOK AT OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR FOR AVAILABLE DATES! OUR CALENDAR IS ALWAYS UP TO DATE!

Couldn't Have Been Better!

Couldn't Have Been Better!

I felt compelled to pat myself on the back for making such a great decision in renting this 'property'. My daughter and I actually "high-fived" each other upon entering the apt. We had gone to Boston for our annual mother/daughter springbreak trip. Chicago,D.C., and the Poconos were our previous destinations and were wonderful, but having this condo in Boston made our stay there extra special. There were absolutely no surprises awaiting us upon arrival or throughout the week. Cheryl gave a rather detailed description of where to walk, the duration of the walks, activities or sites to see along the way, and of course, places to eat.
We flew to Logan from Pittsburgh. The owners provided EXACT details on the shuttle and train and on foot to get us to their condo. It was truly stress-free. I would really NOT want to take a vehicle to Boston because the streets are very narrow, the parking--IF available--is expensive and inconvenient, and it is tremendously easy to walk to many destinations. We took the train to Cambridge to shop and to go to the Museum of Fine Arts (which is free on Wed. evenings btw).
We ate out at times, but also ate in. The kitchen was stocked well. Sometimes after walking so much in one day, we would get take-out and go back to eat in the condo late at night. It was restful. We found that we would go to 'Going Bananas' on Salem St to buy our grocery things. They had great produce and pre-made salads that were perfect. Unfortunately, we had to pass 'Bova's' Bakery on the way back to the condo. They have breads and desserts to die for. So, we couldn't resist--AND they are open 24 hrs, 365 days a year!
We loved Salem St and it is so so close to the apt.
One thing we would say about other sites is, if you plan to climb the Bunker Hill Monument, beware! Walking there was simple. Going up and coming down were a 'piece of cake'. The next a.m., my calves were unhappy:) Advil was my friend.
The owner's were great. They answered any question I had prior to and after booking. I never needed to contact them while we were there because everything was perfectly in order. The keys arrived on time and they made returning them extremely easy, also. I forgot my phone charger and contacted Carlos. He immediately assured me the 'cleaning' person had found it and would return it to me.
We would definitely stay here again and have told several friends they should too! The property, the owners, the area, the food, the sites....couldn't have been better

Owner's Response: Rita, we are so glad that you and Lindsay had a fun mother/daughter spring break and hope you return to Boston again soon. It makes us happy to know that other people can enjoy Boston the way we do! I think it is totally understandable that one can not walk by Bova's or Mike's Pastry and not partake of the goodies on display there! We always walk it off when we are there. Yes, the Bunker Hill monument is impressive. The view is beautiful. And, yes, it is a strenuous walk to the top! Thanks so much for your review and we were delighted to have you as our guests.

We are on our last of 6 nights here in Boston. This rental is absolutely perfect. We cooked all of our meals here; the kitchen is FULLY equipped. We used the wifi, did laundry,and stored bikes in the basement. After a day of sightseeing it was nice to come back to a comfortable place. Everything is SO close. If you forget something cvs is close by.Every night we walked to Hanover street for a sorbet and coffee. The neighborhood is very safe. If you are planning a trip to Boston and you want a great place to stay this is it.

This was our first trip to Boston to visit family and I had had my eye one this particular unit for some time, as it was right in the North End where we wanted to stay. Imagine how excited we were when we arrived.. Not only is the unit in a perfect location to everything, it's just so darn cute! When we stepped inside, the unit was just as it was described and a perfect size for my husband, myself and our teenage son. We had breakfast every morning in the apartment before heading outside and the kitchen has everything you need. The murphy bed and fold out couch were perfect and both very comfortable. We had plenty of room to move about for being a studio. Wifi and the air-conditioning were awesome as well! I would caution those who have trouble walking or climbing as those were some stairs.. We were prepared to climb, but they were very narrow and steep as it is an older building. We were fine with it as we worked off all the goodies we ate from Mike's Pastry and Modern Bakery.. a must see for sure! For us, this unit could not have been more perfect in location..most attractions are a short walk away. We rented a car from Enterprise right down the street and drove to York, Maine which is only a short hour drive.. We highly recommend it! We used the app, Spot Hero to find a parking garage for the car as you need a permit to park on the street. We found a parking garage next to the Coast Guard station.. could not have been more easy and convenient. Thank you so much to Carlos for the great communication..we had everything we needed before we arrived. We can't wait to go back.. we have so much more to explore!

Owner's Response: Michelle, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for choosing us. The North End of Boston is definitely a fun place. We, too, love Mike's Pastry and Modern Bakery! Glad you discovered them. The stairs indeed help burn off the calories. Thanks for the name of the app. We will add that to our directions. Hope you get to return soon.

North End Gem

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I love Boston and spent our 25th anniversary there 5 years ago. We love the North End and decided to try a VRBO property for our 30th anniversary trip. We were not disappointed. We know that Boston is a great walking city and the North End has the best food. The only drawback was the 4 flights of stairs (54 steps from front door to apartment), but by the end of our stay we handled them just fine. The apartment was very clean and perfect for two people. Thanks for a great place to stay Carlos - maybe we'll check out one of your other properties next time we travel outside of Texas. Rick and Kim Zarder

Owner's Response: Thank you, Rick and Kim, and we are so happy that you had a good stay. I am like you on the stairs: by the time we leave, they are easy! Helps to burn off my Mike's Pastry calories! We have another property in Boston, a two-bedroom condo a couple of blocks over; a one-bedroom condo on Music Row in Nashville, and a four-bedroom, three-bath home in the mountains of North Carolina. We would be honored to have you visit any and all of these.

The Absolute Best!

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay and I enjoyed it as much, if not MORE, than the first stay. Everything is exactly as shown and described. The place was sparkling clean and plenty of everything needed was handy. Room to stow cases and clothes was much appreciated! Murphy bed was comfortable and sofa perfect for crashing after a day in the city. The area around has everything you need-- a great hardware store on Salem. It was good to run around all day and then get tasty meals to take up to the condo while reviewing the day. As someone who travels solo, I greatly appreciated feeling safe and secure both in the condo and the neighborhood. Carlos is a delight to work with--everything from rapid responses to emails to checking up on his guests to quickly refunding the deposit. I hope to stay in this little gem again!

Our Condo is located in the historical North End of Boston, which is known as 'Little Italy.' Located a block off the Freedom Trail and around the corner from the North Church, our condo is the perfect spot if you want to be in the center of the action, but on a quiet, safe, short street. Walk the cobblestone streets like Paul Revere and America's ancestors, or take a trek on the new Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway which connects to many sights including shopping new (Banana Republic, Crate and Barrel, Gap, Ann Taylor, Macy's) and old, including vintage old world shops. Also nearby are Copp's Hill Burying Ground, Paul Revere's House, and the Bunker Hill monument. The T, Boston's public transportation system, nearby and easy to use, will take you quickly to outlying areas, including Harvard and Cambridge. We are within easy walking distance of most Boston attractions and are a block away from Boston Harbor with its many restaurants featuring chowder and local fish dishes.
