Overview

Boston Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Just renovated studio apartment on fabulous Charles Street!

Completely renovated in the summer of 2012, this studio apartment is a joy to experience. Second floor walk-up with two large, sunny windows facing the back of the building. Very private and you don’t get Charles St. traffic noise. Non-working but gorgeous marble fireplace. The “small is beautiful” mantra fits in every way. It includes a fully equipped, extremely functional kitchen with new appliances, an eat-in kitchen counter, living room, desk, dining table and chairs and a cozy bed nook that is hidden from view. Quality linens and towels. The bathroom has a shiny new tub and vanity that fit in beautifully with the 1920’s black and white basket weave tile floor. The owner/architectural designer has anticipated your every need and provides you with a beautiful little package that is so inviting, it feels like you’ve stepped into your own new home. You'll love walking downstairs and being in the center of sweet Charles Street, with everything at your finger tips.

Fresh, cozy and comfortable. Staying here is a memorable and unique experience.

Free WiFi, a Hi-Fi radio with an iPod dock, 42 inch flat screen TV and DVD player with DVD collection, large walk-in closet.

About Robin

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 Hancock St. as well.

Robin purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Robin chose Boston

Charles Street on Beacon Hill! Need I say more! Can't beat the location.

What makes this apartment unique

Once again, Charles Street! It's awesome and close to everything.

Heaven is a place on Charles Street

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I had the pleasure of staying here once again and it did not disappoint. A cozy well appointed apartment with so many thoughtful touches. A little haven to come back to after shopping or sightseeing. Breakfasts by the window before stepping out on to one of Bostons prettiest streets. We can't thank Robin enough for making everything so perfect, we will be back next year.

Außergewöhnlich

  • 5 of 5
Nach einigen Tagen NYC haben wir, ein Ehepaar mittleren Alters, Ruhe und Erholung in Boston gesucht. Deine Wohnung, liebe Robin, erschien uns ein idealer Platz dafür zu sein. Schon die Lage in der exklusiven Charles St., ließ unser Herz höher schlagen. Als wir dann die Tür zur Wohnung im 1. Stock öffneten wussten wir: BINGO - JACKPOT! Edel und liebevoll eingerichtet, anheimelnd und sehr gemütlich. Liebe auf den ersten Blick. Wir waren am Ziel unsrer Wünsche angelangt. Die Ausstattung der Küche (Tassen, Teller, Besteck und sogar, dem edlen Spender sei Dank, noch ein guter Rest eines feinen Bourbons) Auch Kaffee, Tee und Gewürze waren ausreichend vorhanden. Dir liebe Robin, für Deine große Hilfsbereitschaft und Dein Verständnis ganz herzlichen Dank. Allen die Boston besuchen möchten, legen wir diese Wohnung ans Herz. Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt und sind nur schweren Herzens wieder fort gegangen und würden gerne wieder kommen dürfen.

After some busy and rough days in NYC, we, a mid-aged couple hoped to find some relaxtion and peace in Boston. Your appt., dear Robin, seemed to be be the perfect place for that. Already the location in the exclusive Charles St. was promising and let our hearts beat faster. As soon as we opened the door to our appt. in the first floor, we knew: we hit the JACKPOT. Nobly, lovingly and very cozily furnished appt. It was love at first glance. We had everything we ever could imagine. The equipment of the kitchen was amazing (cups,plates, glasses, noble cutery and even - thank to the noble donor - a last sip of the finest Bourbon ;-) It was no surprise anymore, that coffe, tea and all kind of spices were there as well. Thank you very much, dear Robin, for your great and helpfulness and your understanding! All of you, who want to visit Boston: This is a perfect place to stay. We felt like at home and did not want to leave anymore. We would be happy to be allowed to return some day.

Nice historic gem

  • 5 of 5
We found the apartment to be just exactly how it was depicted in the photographs. It was lovely, nicely appointed, has a well stocked small kitchen, comfortable bed, clean, and in the perfect location. Robin was most accommodating when we had to tweak our dates by a day or two. We loved being part of the Beacon Hill neighborhood, even for just a few days, and discovered some amazing restaurants nearby. Artu is across the street, Figs down a couple blocks, and 75 Chestnut, also a couple blocks, were our favorites. Because the apartment is small, it is not convenient for more than two people. We loved it and hope to return.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at the Beacon Hill Hideaway and the fourth visit to one of its owners’ properties. I’ll leave the descriptions to all the other visitors’ positive reviews and our earlier review. They’re spot on. But suffice it to say, that here I eat like a king, sleep like a baby and play like a child. What more can you ask? Boston is an incredible destination and the Beacon Hill Hideaway is an exceptional place from which to enjoy it. Confidently recommended!

Comfort, convenience and charm

  • 5 of 5
Charles St. is truly one of the finest areas in Boston and the Beacon Hill Hideaway is simply an outstanding place from which to enjoy the area and Boston in general. It’s clean, well kept, airy and convenient to much of what Boston has to offer. As studio apartments go, I can’t imagine a better use of 360 square feet. My wife and I prefer to stay at an apartment rather than a hotel when visiting a city such as Boston. It’s more comfortable with most of the convenience of home. The Beacon Hill Hideaway is very well equipped to serve as your home away from home. In fact, we entertained our daughter and her boyfriend and cooked there almost every night. Markets for groceries, specialty foods and beverages are very close at hand as are numerous restaurants should you prefer to go that route. And there’s one extra bonus: a walk-in closet. We stored or luggage there rather than have to stare at it during our stay. Simply put you can’t go wrong staying here. Highly and enthusiastically recommended.

Ideally located for visiting the rest of the city, Charles St is Beacon Hill's main street. Catering mainly to the surrounding affluent neighborhood are wonderful food shops such as Savenour’s, upscale clothing boutiques, antique stores and enticing cafes and restaurants. At one point, this street earned the honor of 'the most civilized street in America”. The evidence is clear: graceful homes, pretty facades, well-tended gardens, flower pots all abloom – all pointing to a well loved and cared for neighborhood.

Beacon Hill is one of Boston's smallest and most historic neighborhoods, featuring rows of brownstones and grand townhouses. Within this area, the most exclusive is Louisburg Square, which until this day remains as one of Boston's most sought after, and expensive addresses. Louisa May Alcott lived there and John Kerry lives there now.

The area is also a treasure trove for fans of the famous local architectural icon, Charles Bulfinch (the man behind the nearby State House, among others), who designed many of the patrician homes on Beacon Hill.

The famous Boston Gardens and Commons are at one end of Charles Street and the other end takes you to Mass. General Hospital or the Boston Esplanade and walkway along the Charles River.
