'ONE IF BY LAND, TWO IF BY SEA ... ' - CHANCE TO STAY AT AN AMERICAN LANDMARK

Boston Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps up to 4 ( one bedroom and sofa bed )

Boston is a beautiful, historical walking city - if you stay in the North End which is the focal point of all the Sights & Activities that every visitor to Boston wants to see. By staying in the North End you can enjoy ALL YOUR TIME in Boston instead of getting stuck trying to get to the attractions - waiting for over-crowded subways or taxis stuck in traffic.

The apartment is nicely decorated, we provide linens, towels. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare meals.

In the Historic North End (Little Italy) there are no hotels, so the only way to stay in the nicest part of town is to stay in a private home.

This apartment overlooks the Old North Church courtyard. The Old North Church is one of the primary historical sites associated with the folklore of the American Revolution. This apartment is a few doors down from Paul Revere's House & the Freedom Trail. In the Heart of the old Italian district, you are surrounded by many of the best restuarants in the city.

Fanueil Hall is few blocks away, this property is on the new Greenway (created by the Big Dig), and is three blocks from the Aquarium and Whale Watch Tours. This apartment is 4 blocks from the Celtics & Bruins at Boston Garden. You can walk thru Fanueil Hall to get to Beacon Hill and the Swan Boats on the Boston Public Garden... or take advantage of 4 different subway stops to get to Fenway, the Museums or Harvard Square

If the dates you want are unavailable, we have a couple other beautiful apartments that are also in the North End - so you can likely stay among our apartments and remain in the nicest, most historical, most interesting & convenient part of the city.

Note: We are in the HEART of the CITY( Boston), so obviously you could expect as in any main city and major city some noise associated with traffic, tourists, etc. and other noise that can't be controlled us. We can't be accountable or responsible for noise or disturbance from circumstance happening outside or around our unit or in the streets.

If you are choosing staying in the heart, most accessible, most historic and fun part of Boston, then THIS is your place.

1 bedroom condo. Sleeps up to 4: 1 queen size bed for 2 people. A queen size sofa bed in living room for 2 more people ( 2 children or one adult and one child). Note: it's a sofa bed so it's meant for a short term stay.

Mind that this is not a large area but we can accommodate people if they requested it for a 4 people party.

It has all the appliances and features you will need in the in kitchen ( coffee maker, oven, microwave, refrigerator). Plasma TV and High Speed WiFi internet.

This unit is a few blocks from the Financial District ( making it ideal for business trips)

About Mark & Caroline

We first started staying in apartments instead of hotels when vacationing in Europe. After years of visiting cities and staying in hotels, we found that by staying in apartments we can really get to know the heart of a city.

Mark & Caroline purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Mark & Caroline chose Boston

For us, a busy schedule means you can''t always get away for vacation. But if you are like us and you love to be surrounded by culture and history, your going to find visiting the North End of Boston is a little bit like taking a little trip to Europe... if only for a day.

What makes this apartment unique

You can't stay in the North End of Boston unless you stay in a private home. Location is the reason you want to stay in the North End. Whether you want to see Paul Revere's house, the Old North Church, the Freedom trail, Old Ironsides, Whale Watches, the Celtics and Bruins, Faneuil Hall or the Public Garden.

Everything great about visitng Boston is a short walk from our apartment

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying at this charming North End apartment. The location was so convenient. Steps away from fantastic restaurants and the Old North Church. During part of our stay our daughter and her husband visited and they were very happy with the comfort of the sofa bed! Our hostess met us as we arrived and was very generous with her time, answering questions and sharing her favorite spots. Next time we visit Boston we hope this apartment will be available.

Boston vacation

The location of this unit was perfect. Wonderful to stay in such a historical area. The unit is quite small but adequate for two for a short stay. Apartment was very clean. Be aware it is a third floor walk-up so need to be able to handle stairs. Easy to walk to most tourist sites. Be sure to visit the print shop and chocolate shop just down the street. This unit is great for a couple.

Owner's Response: Yes, Our unit is perfect for a short term stay. We allow more than 2 people when people ask us. In our description we also state that is in the 3rd floor and there is no elevator. So people who booked with us are already aware of it, since it's already described in the details about the apartment. We are proud of our location, our apartment and the service provide. One of the most historic locations in Boston at a great and affordable rate for an apartment not for a room in an expensive hotel.

This apartment is just steps off the Freedom Trail. Great location for seeing the sights of Boston. Loved the old world charm of the apartment and the neighborhood. We would highly recommend to our friends and would stay there again if in Boston.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at this perfectly located apartment! We arrived by bus at the South Station, took a day trip to Salem and surrounding areas from the North Station, and took the Silver Line to the airport. We were able to walk everywhere or take the metro, which was very easy to navigate. All the important sites were very close to the apartment, along with the best restaurants and grocery stores.

Caroline was very responsive to our needs and questions, and she was very happy to make recommendations for places to eat and grab a quick meal. Although we never had a bad meal anywhere, no trip to the North End would be complete without visiting Regina Pizzeria or Mike’s Pastry (they are not busy before 10 am). Bova’s Bakery is right around the corner too and they offer mini cannoli and great sandwiches. Also, be sure to stop in the Green Dragon for a pint to experience history and have a memorable meal at Ye Old Oyster House.

My only criticisms would be that there is no place to fully unpack your luggage. My husband and I did our best to use the closet and the shelves in the bedroom, but it was a little awkward for an extended stay. Regardless, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

Owner's Response: Thanks Cindy for your comments. You guys were great guests, very respectful to the place and to the rules.
Yes the closet is just big enough for a short term stay. It's not a big place but we try to accommodate people if they want to stay in one of the best locations in the North End closer to all the main sites and public transportation and one of the nicest and most historic streets in the North End.

My wife and I stayed here and loved everything about it! We visit Boston often and wish we knew about this rental sooner. Excellent location to anything Boston. Very convenient to the T, buses, airport. Nestled in Boston's most historic community, lovely shops, resturants and quiet area. Always felt safe and secure.

We absolutely loved our stay here. In our opinion, this is the best location in Boston. It's a quaint, quiet, historic neighborhood with an abundance of great restaurants in easy walking distance. We were two foodies in North End heaven! The apartment was immaculate and well equipped. Caroline, the owner, is a wonderful person who went out of her way to answer any questions we had about the area. "A" for communications, plus she was extremely punctual about meeting us with the key. Delightful time. Highly recommended.
