About Elizabeth Gittings

Friendly art historian and designer. Born and raised in Asia and the US, I love international design and traditional folk arts, which is why my spaces are eclectic, decorated in European, Pan-Asian, and Moroccan styles. One of the main reasons I like sharing my spaces is because, in this way, I am also sharing experiences and beauty I have encountered while traveling.

Elizabeth Gittings purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Elizabeth Gittings chose Boston

It is a gracious and historically important early American townhouse, with lovely authentic architectural details. The interior spaces have the calm of the Neo-Classical and the intimacy of the Federal style. Boston is a great city for the arts and history, and a pleasure to experience because of its human scale.

What makes this apartment unique

The fireplaces, courtyard garden with fountain, skylights, and hand-hewn beams are rare. Located in Boston's oldest neighborhood. And the art!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Looking for an apartment in Boston I gladly found this wonderful suite - it is marvellous, wonderfull, overwhelming - everything you need is there and even more .... Elizabeth is such a carying host:: always filled fridge adjusted to your needs and wishes..; she is so kind and helpfull - you cant get a better host. The apartment is ideally located - you can easily get to the center, everything in walking distance - at least for us. And if you prefer the T (underground) or the bus it's also only about a some minutes walk. We liked it so much to stay there and to get known to Elizabeth that we will come back soon for sure..

My husband and I were looking for a perfect, romantic place to stay while traveling to Boston. This place immediately caught my eye and my husband loved the looks of it. The owner was great with helping us with our first travel to Boston and Charlestown with restaurants and places to visits guides. She was very quick with email and phone responses and made us feel very welcomed! We are gracious that she offered us her place to stay and we couldn't have been happier, the placed was beyond beautifully decorated and made you feel like you were staying in luxury. When we make our way back to Boston, this is where we will be staying!

My Favorite Place to stay in Boston!!

  • 5 of 5
This was my second time staying with Elizabeth and have to say, she continues to impress! Not only is the location great, but when you arrive, you almost feel at home and not like its a hotel or anything like that. She goes above and beyond when it comes to comfort and cleanliness! I stayed in the Salem Suite last year and had my family come down and stay in the Moroccan Suite too. The bed was so comfortable, it was hard to get out of it in the morning! She has everything you could want or need in both suites and the character that she puts into them is really cool and chic. I was just back out there this September for a Red Sox vs Yanks game and had no doubt in my mind that I was going to stay again! It was just like I remembered it and can't wait to come back again! Thanks for all the hospitality and for making my Boston visits so relaxing and enjoyable!

Amazing Moroccan Oasis!

  • 5 of 5
I have used HomeAway several times, but this was by far the best rental yet. The apartment is everything that it is promised to be and then some. I did not feel like I was in a city, I truly felt like I was in a little Moroccan oasis! The apartment was immaculately prepared with soaps, candles, and breakfast for the mornings. The property manager, Margaret, was also a delight and very pleasant to deal with. Definitely one of the best stays I've ever had, I couldn't recommend it enough!

Wonderful weekend!!

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend this lovely apartment to anyone looking to get away for a romantic weekend. There is so much attention to detail in all areas of decor and lighting in this Moroccan getaway. The fridge was filled for us with so many things for breakfast and even a bottle of "the bubbly" to help us celebrate our 15 year anniversary all supplied by Elizabeth. The information book that is in the apartment details where to go and highlights of the area very well, the closest T station is not even a half a mile away and easy to walk to. We walked right to Little Italy within 15 minutes where I was transported back to my childhood days in New York when my Italian grandparents street would have block parties with homemade food out in carts on the street, music and lots of laughter. We ate and drank (probably a bit too much) but also walked a lot so we had no guilt! We had a wonderful weekend and we definitely want to come back next year if life allows us! Thanks so much Elizabeth! You made our weekend wonderful!

Notes:
Boston has an excellent public transit system (MBTA.com) and we are minutes from subway and bus stops, as well as a reliable taxi dispatch. We recommend parking your car during your stay, as driving and parking in Boston are very difficult and expensive. There is street parking, free and safe, available on Salem Street in front of townhouse on weekends only, first come, first served basis. For weekdays, there is a covered garage available in the neighborhood $25 a day (a good rate for Boston!): http://www.pilgrimparking.com/boston-parking-garages/nautica-garage.htm.
