We couldn't have asked for more. The two of us had a wonderful 7 day stay at this immaculately clean and quiet condo; located perfectly between Hanover and Salem Streets. Within walking distance to everything. We felt very safe walking to and from the condo at any hour of the day or night. Neither of our taxi drivers - delivering from the airport and picking us up, had any trouble finding the condo. When I dropped an earring and it went under the bed, I feared not being able to find it. At even the best hotels the earring would have been hard to find among the dust bunnies. No dust bunnies under this bed!! Although there is a washer and dryer in the hall just outside the condo, we found the laundromat on Salem, across from the North Church just as convenient and we could do more loads at once. Although the temperatures were in the mid-90's, the 3 window air conditioners kept the condo comfortable day and night. We took the "T" to the Back Bay twice, and ended up walking 'home' each time. We aren't big city people; Boston didn't seem like a big city to us. We've already told everyone we've talked to about this wonderful condo, it's perfect location and a rental price well within our budget. Our only fear is that the next time we want to rent it, some of those friends will already have it reserved! Thanks Carlos and Cheryl for sharing your condo and making our vacation one that we will always remember.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a week in this lovely condo. We were traveling with 3 children--a 14 year old, a 10 year old, and a 1 year old. The location absolutely can't be beat--the day we did the Freedom Trail, we stopped back by the apartment to refill our drink bottles, change the baby's diaper, etc--it's just that convenient. The Old North Church is literally 100 steps away. We took the kids to play at all the area playgrounds and felt like locals. We loved the Italian restaurants and bakeries. Cheryl and Carlos, the owners, were wonderful--we emailed them tons of questions and they always responded with quick and helpful information. They even arranged to have the housekeeper bring us a pack and play for the baby. The girls shared the bedroom with the twin beds--it was a bit cramped but they were happy to have their own room, which they don't get when we stay in a hotel! Cheryl sent info about parking, but we found parking on the street for free just a few blocks away for the days we used our rental car to make day trips to Salem, Lexington & Concord, etc, then we turned in our car and used the metro--the girls' first experience with this; they were pros by the time we left. It was a 10 minute walk to the metro stop. It is on the smaller side, but honestly, it was worth that trade off for the location, and it was TONS more room than we would have gotten in a hotel--and we wouldn't have had the kitchen, living room, or a separate bedroom for the girls. It was very well maintained, clean, and had everything we needed for dinners at home, making coffee, etc. It's on a courtyard so you don't have any street noise as well.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
The unit is exactly as pictured. It is very convenient and close to some wonderful restaurants and just a few blocks from the Haymarket T stop. The location is very safe and was super quiet...we rarely heard or saw any neighbors. We are very active and this was just a place to lay our heads. That being said, a better mattress and linens would have garnered this a 5, otherwise it meets basic needs. Note: If you need or prefer a firm mattress this would not be your best choice.

Having visited Boston numerous times we like to stay in a different area each time to try new restaurants and shops. Bread and Butter makes a fantastic breakfast quiche, Pushcart Pizza makes a great pie and you have to hit Mike's Pastry for dessert...then walk it all off on the Freedom Trail. You'll find a restaurant and bakery on very block so pace yourselves!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Lori. Glad you had a fun stay in Boston. The North End is definitely the place to eat lots of good food and walk it off. The mattresses are Simmons Beautyrest firm and are only a couple of years old. We sleep on a firm mattress, too, and find these well-suited for us. We will certainly ask the housekeeper to check the linens. We just replaced those recently. Maybe she has some in rotation that should come out of rotation. We hope you return to Boston soon!

Great condo, amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is located in a cute courtyard in an amazing location that is walkable to everything!! Carlos was so helpful during the planning - always quick to respond to my questions and provided a lot of information before I even had to ask. The second bedroom is small, but with the kitchen and family room, plus larger master, it was not an issue for 4 adults. I would absolutely book the same condo the next time I'm in Boston - it's perfect!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a better location for our stay in Boston! The pictures and description were very accurate and the condo was very clean. (We arrived late and it was fantastic to come in and not feel like everything needed to be wiped down before we could use it!) The space in the condo was just right for my husband, myself and our two children. We could easily fit around the kitchen table, watch a movie together in the den and we all slept well on the comfy beds. The owners, Carlos and Cheryl, were wonderful--they promptly answered our questions and provided all the information one needs for a stay in their place.

We had the best time! We were there to show our children the sites of the American Revolution, as well as the beautiful city of Boston--the condo met both of these needs perfectly. You can walk nearly everywhere, but the subway 'T' is a 5-7 minute walk making farther destinations easily accessible. (Being on a road trip, we had our car, but we parked in a lot a few blocks away for a very reasonable price where it was quite secure for the two days we did not need it.)

I have to say, it was a thrill to come out onto the street and be just around the corner from the Old North Church! We saw a lot in our short stay because it was all so convenient--some favorites were the ONC, Paul Revere's house, the Duck Tour, Boston Public Garden, the Granary Burial Ground, the Museum of Fine Arts and the USS Constitution. As other reviewers have shared, the restaurants and bakeries in the North End are the best. We enjoyed treats from Bova's and Mike's, pizza from Regina's and our dinner at Giacomo's was the best meal of our entire trip! Staying at this condo in the North End really made us feel more like locals rather than tourists. It was not difficult to see why it has so many five star reviews!

Charming in the heart of the North End

  • 5 of 5
Our party of three adults stayed here for a week and were very comfortable. Everything we could have needed was provided and more. Staying here made us feel we were experiencing more of the neighbourhood and city than we would have in a hotel. Carlos and Cheryl provided directions and suggestions that made our stay even better and followed up while we were there to make sure things were good. There are numerous restaurants and cafes right nearby and having a kitchen makes it easy to eat in as well.

We found the location exceeded all of our expectations. This condo is right in the heart of the North End and in the midst of the Freedom Trail so history is right outside the door, but is in a little courtyard so it is quiet and feels secluded. It is an easy walk to three different T lines, to the Harbour Walk and to TD Garden. Even the convention centre and Back Bay area are reasonable walks but we're walkers. You don't need a car and the T passes got less use than we expected.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and will recommend it to anyone travelling to Boston.

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.
