Boston Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

PICTURESQUE BEACON HILL, BOSTON'S HISTORIC CENTER! This 1,100 square foot, 3 bedroom condominium in the heart of Beacon Hill is perfectly situated for those wishing to enjoy the best of Boston. Occupying the 3rd and 4th floors of a small 19th century building, the recently renovated condo offers charm and comfort. High ceilings, wood floors throughout and lots of light from the many windows are the setting for an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture, plenty of books and art.

YOU WON'T NEED A CAR! Step out of the condo and you will find a day spa and yoga studio at street level. Walk to everything! One short block to Charles Street, with its cafes, boutiques, antique galleries and restaurants. Two blocks to the Public Garden, or to the Boston Common. Enjoy the Swan Boats in the summer, or walk to skating on Frog Pond in winter. Stroll down to the Esplanade and go for a run along the Charles River for a great view of the Boston skyline.

Boston's excellent subway system is just minutes away. Only 3 stops on the Red Line and you are in Harvard Square, or catch the Green Line to the MFA. In the summer, you will enjoy the comfort of central air conditioning and the views from the private roof deck. The small, but nicely fitted kitchen has everything for those who like to cook, including 2 ovens. In the marble-tiled bathroom, we replaced the bathtub with a large glass-enclosed shower with a bench and a rain-shower head. The 2 larger bedrooms have new queen mattresses, and the smaller bedroom has one twin bed.

Why Owner chose Boston

Boston is one of the world's loveliest cities. Scenic and historic, it is small enough to be accessible and pedestrian-friendly, while also offering world-class art, restaurants and entertainment.

Charming, with a terrific location!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful rental for our first trip to Boston! Roomy, well equipped, clean and comfortable; the five of us loved having this apartment as our home base while we explored historical sites, roamed Boston Common, visited museums and nearby Salem. The apartment has interesting art and a wide variety of books. Caroline was an excellent source for local information - no need for a car; we could walk everywhere or take the 'T'. She also was great about answering questions via email promptly. Thanks, Caroline!

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for our party of 5, in town for a wedding. It was spacious, clean, comfortable, and retained much of the original character and details of the building, which we much appreciated. In addition, the art, textiles, and books contributed to the warm and inviting atmosphere. The view from the rooftop deck was lovely, and a particular favorite of our teenage son, who spent several hours drawing up there. Only a few blocks from the red and green line trains, made getting around Boston, Cambridge and Somerville very convenient. There's so much to do nearby...restaurants, shopping, theaters, strolling historic neighborhoods, visiting the Public Garden, walking along the Esplanade. You're really in the center of it all. We had excellent communication with the owner, and everything was as expected from the descriptions. Better, really! We will definitely recommend this to friends and family visiting the Boston area, and hope to return ourselves in the future. Thanks for a wonderful place to temporarily call home!

Owner's Response: Hi Laura,
There seem to have been some technical difficulties, and the text of your review did not get posted, so I have copied it in its entirety from Homeaway's notification:
Review #9215476 "Charming and perfect location."
This lovely apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Boston. This is the second time around we have rented this flat and enjoyed it even more the second time around. The apartment is comfortably furnished and very clean. Caroline is very friendly and accommodating. We will most definitely be renting her home again in the near future."

Perfect setting

  • 5 of 5
Location is usually everything in choosing an appropriate vacation spot , but this town home adds so much more to the mix. Clean, spacious and filled with wonderful and eclectic art and literature. The apartment is well appointed. No need to run out for anything. The neighborhood is quaint and walkable to all. The only problem is that you are so comfy you may not leave!!

All You Could Ask For!

The perfect rental! Great location, full amenities, spacious, lovely furniture and decorations; it even has a deck on the roof, with wonderful views of the City. The condo was wonderfully neat and clean, crammed with interesting nick nacks, pictures and books. We really felt like we were staying in a special B&B that was just for us. A special thank you to the owner, Caroline, who was kind and thoughtful and took many unexpected actions to insure our special vacation. A really special rental--most highly recommended.
