STYLISH 3-BDRM BEACON HILL CONDO, NEXT TO CHARLES ST, BOSTON COMMON

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.

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.

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.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
Caroline's flat is simply perfect. It is in a fabulous location in the heart of Boston. It is CLEAN, comfortable and homey. A wonderful retreat after a day of exploring the city. It has all the charm of a classic Boston flat, with the important upgrades in the kitchen and bathroom. I would highly recommend staying here, and hope to return some day. Moreover, Caroline is a delight to work with - so responsive, gracious and courteous.

OUTSTANDING LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We loved the location of Caroline's Condo. If you get a chance to go up to the roof you will get to see an awesome view of Boston. We could walk everywhere. Dealing with Caroline was amazing. If you had a question she got back to you within a day. Loved our time here.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5
What can I say about this lovely home. It is located so close to everything. My family and I walked everywhere. I was reminded of the streets in England. The condo had everything you could ever want or need. I loved the character it had. It has been updated, but still has the old world charm. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was completely renovated and clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. Everything was spotless.

Let me tell you about Caroline, the owner. She was so easy to work with and very prompt at answering any questions. Whenever I emailed her with concerns or more than a dozen questions, she always answered within 30 minutes. I must have emailed her a half dozen times and she never got impatient with me. Caroline was a joy and I would definitely recommend this beautiful condo to friends, family and anyone planning a trip to the Boston area.

Our favorite thing we did was go to a Bruins game. I have never been to a hockey game before and it was fabulous. We were 5 rows off the ice and it was very exciting. I have become a fan of hockey, and of the Bruins especially.

We love the city of Boston (this was our second trip) and we hope to return. We will definitely call Caroline.

BOSTON PERFECTION!!

  • 5 of 5
Lets's start at the beginning, the enquiry and booking process was quick and easy, Caroline is a delight to deal with and makes the whole process stress free. The front door key arrived to us in Australia in plenty of time and I was able to pay the full amount when the exchange rate was best. We arrived on a cold January evening to a warm 'home' with all 5 of us only able to say "Wow!" We immediately felt at home and were able to relax totally with a wonderful shower and comfy beds after each big day out. The condo is clean and cosy with a modern well equipped kitchen and bathroom. There is plenty of storage space even a large hall cupboard for winter wear. The rooftop deck is amazing and worth a sit even amongst the snow. We had heavy snow on our 2nd night and this was cleared from the sidewalk/footpath early in the morning and the condo itself was warm and toasty to the point we turned off the heat so we could snuggle under the ample blankets. Look for a book in the condo called "Beacon Hill" it is a short read about the history of the area but has plenty of photos and things to look out for in the streets around you. The area is a walkers paradise, we walked to the basketball at TD Garden, around the common and public garden, down Back Bay to the Prudential Tower and down to Hanover St for a beautiful Italian meal. Charles St, which you can see from the kitchen window, is a wonderful mix of eateries, galleries and boutiques and at it's end is the "T" train station. We ate twice at the famous 'Cheers' pub which is a 4 minute walk away and walking through the snow on Boston Common was magical. Yes there are some stairs- 2 lots to enter the condo and 1 more up to the bedrooms but honestly after a day's walking they are a small inconvenience as you know what is waiting for you at the top. We walked to the New England Aquarium, took the T over to Harvard Sqaure and another to South Shore Plaza. Boston has plenty to see and do and having this condo as a base made the last week of our month in the US the most enjoyable of all. I would recommend this condo to anyone especially families up to 5 members like ours. When we return to Boston, as I'm sure we will do some day, there is no other place we would like to say.
