CHARLES ST, BEACON HILL HIDEAWAY

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.

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

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

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

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.

THE PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a last minute anniversary trip and could not have picked a better place. Robin was super helpful and responded to my last minute plea for availability the night before we arrived. We called Friday with a Saturday arrival and when we arrived the place was perfect. Robin was super flexible with check-in and check-out. Aside from making our first experience with vrbo easy the location could not be better. We felt like locals walking up and down Charles St and the apartment really felt like a 5 star hotel! We wouldn't imagine staying anywhere else next time we visit!!!

HEAVEN IN A SMALL SPACE

  • 5 of 5
What can I say about this perfect little retreat, Robin has excelled in making this a cosy little home from home. It is so well equipped with so many extra little touches to make our stay just a joy. Has to be one of the best locations in Boston, stepping out on to Charles Street is like stepping back in time, quaint little shops and friendly shop owners. We have had the pleasure of working with Robin twice before and she makes the whole process simple and seamless. The apartment is so homely we ended up eating in most of the time, it was too nice to leave, especially as it was dressed for Christmas. Wonderful to come back to after a day shopping, kick of the shoes and relax. The bed was so comfortable it was like sleeping on a cloud, and having breakfast by the window was a treat. Can't wait to return.

A PERFECT LOCATION FOR BOSTON!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was a perfect find for a long weekend in Boston. The location was key, right on Charles St. on Beacon Hill but the studio's position in the rear of the building made it quiet and peaceful. It was a short walk to the Red Line where I needed to travel on and was equally as close and convenient to the Public Garden. A Whole Foods market was a 10 minute walk and across the street was a wine shop with a great selection of wine and beer. The apartment was well appointed with all necessary tools in the kitchen and the bathroom had nice clean and fluffy towels. It was just the perfect size for me. The owner was quick with all correspondence and made the whole transaction flawless. I hope to rent this gem next time I am in Boston!

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.
