Overview

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.

Beautiful Spot in Beacon Hill

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, cozy apartment just around the corner from Charles Street in Beacon Hill. It reminded me of an apartment in Paris off of Rue St. Germain. Iconic views of historic Beacon Hill and the Massachusetts State House. We did not get an opportunity to enjoy the roof deck- still too much snow from the winter. Seating was comfortable. It had plentiful natural light and high ceilings. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to cook in. The bedrooms and bath are on the third floor. A very large, modern shower and bath which also accommodated the laundry.

Caroline, the owner, was a delight to work with...very responsive and helpful. She promptly replied to all inquiries. The deposit was returned promptly. As she did point out, this is a steep walk up to a second & 3rd floor so it may not be for everyone. Her descriptions/photographs of the property are quite accurate.

There are many dining options (and boutique shopping options) within walking distance. The Boston Common and Public Garden are within 2 blocks. If you are a walker, you can easily walk to Newberry Street, Copley Square, Faniuel Hall and the North End. Easy access to the T (subway) and plentiful cabs. There are specialty grocery and liquor stores within a very short walk, the Whole Foods is .6 mi. and Star Market 1 mile away. Parking is very tight, streets are narrow and traffic flow makes no sense-avoid a car if you can. There are parking garages in the area if needed but call ahead to check availability.

Bostonian Beacon of Delight

  • 5 of 5

Location is wonderful - a stagger from liquor stores, delis, diner, bakeries, restaurants and coffee, with antique shops if that is what lights your early twentieth century gas lamp. Well-heeled neighbourhood, a couple of minutes to the Common and ten minutes to two T stops and the river. Apartment is a good few stairs up but worth the haul - it takes you closer to the light. It is cozy and well-equipped with lovely old parquet floors and an eclectic book collection, and there is a comfy lounge, spacious dining-room and a kitchen with all you need, either to cook or heat from the (big) fridge. Decent wifi and separate TV area, and plenty of room in the bedrooms. Shower is marvellous. And a near vertical ascent to the roof terrace has the wow factor for a beer at sunset. Or sunrise. We loved it.

This place was absolutely perfect. Fantastic location, clean, perfectly spacious (I was there with my two adult sons), and wonderful directions and assistance from the owner. Could not have been better. Highly recommend! Thank you!

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!
