About The Owner
We are an architectural designer and social services counselor who live and work on Nantucket Island. In our spare time, we like to create 'homes away from home' and share them with friends and renting guests. We actually take a lot of pleasure anticipating one's every need in order to make each environment exceedingly comfortable and tasteful. Our children find it annoying to go to restaurants or hotels with us because we constantly deconstruct the design and reconstruct an ambiance that we would enjoy being in. An intimate, calm and comfortable ambiance is the key component to our success. We have no doubt you will feel that way in the spaces we have created on Beacon Hill. We have another apartment on Charles St. as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner
As former New Englanders, we can attest to how great this place is. Your apartment is in the best location in the city. We walked almost everywhere: USS Constitution, North End, Aquarium, Newbury St, Faneuil Hall & Commons, Gardens. Had to use the subway 2 days ( ?? and Museum of Fine arts).
Very comfortable and cozy place. We wanted to move in permanently!
