HISTORIC NORTH END BOSTON & WATERFRONT & FANUEIL HALL - WALK TO EVERYTHING

Boston Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4 (full size sofa bed). In the heart of everythin

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. 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. Apartments in this area are generally quite small, but you will find this apartment large enough to be comfortable for 4.

This apartment is a few doors down from Paul Revere's House & the Freedom Trail & the Old North Church. In the Heart of the old Italian district, you are surrounded by many of the best restuarants in the city.

Fanueil Hall is across the street, 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.

About Mark & Caroline

Mark & Caroline love to Travel and first started renting apartments for vacations in Europe. With this property, an opportunity arose for us to offer the same kind of great experience to other travellers that we always experience when we rent vacation apartments around the US and the rest of the world

Mark & Caroline purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mark & Caroline chose Boston

For us the North End of Boston is like taking a vacation in Europe. Since we live in an historic town outside of Boston called Lexington, and we have busy careers - we don't get to go to Europe as often as we would like. Caroline often says when she needs a get-away to renew herself and get the feeling that she has been away on a trip, she will often go and spend the day in the North End - and feel like she has been travelling abroad

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, this place is perfectly placed for our needs. If I plan better next year, I hope for a longer stay with you. Cheers

Best location for visiting Boston

  • 5 of 5
If you're visiting Boston and want to stay in the ideal location, this is it. So many of the sights everyone wants to see are literally minutes away on foot. And if what you want to see is too far to walk, there are subway stops (Blue, Green and Orange lines) nearby. As for dining, this is in the heart of the Little Italy neighborhood, so you have endless choices of first-rate restaurants, some just a few steps from your door. The apartment was tasteful, comfortable and clean. Space in the bathroom is pretty tight, but we managed. Bed in bedroom was fine for two adults, but two adults may find the sofa bed inadequate. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and our host was very accommodating with our early arrival, which was much appreciated. A great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes, location of this apartment offers many great advantages such as the access to many restaurants, cafes, parks, public transportation and the most of the historic sites just steps away from the apartment.
We do have a sofa bed for 2 people ( as an extra bed) but we also specify we prefer to have 2 children or 1 adult and 1 child on that sofa bed. Bearing in mind that a sofa bed is just for a short term stay. it's a sofa bed so the comfort of a regular bed is not really expected. We offer the sofa bed always to people specially to families when they have an specific budget and prefer not to spend the regular prices that expensive hotels in this part of Boston ask. We offer the comfort of an apartment with a separate bedroom, a full kitchen, a bathroom, living room with prices much more affordable than a regular hotel room and in one of the best locations.

Best trip to Boston yet!

  • 5 of 5
I am so happy that we found this apartment! We have stayed in Boston various times, but always in a hotel. Staying in an apartment in the North End was the best experience we have ever had. We could walk everywhere and see everything. The apartment was just the right size for two adults and two preteen boys. And having a kitchen was so helpful when trying to not spend so much money on food. The apartment was clean and in good condition. It was quiet even on a Friday night when the North End was hopping with crowds of people roaming around. We felt safe and got to know the neighborhood pretty quickly. The owners were very helpful and flexible about our check in time since we drove 12 hours to get to Boston. We will definitely be using this apartment again when we visit Boston. I have to say that we were spoiled by having such great amazing food, activities and history so close. We definitely will miss our nightly walk to Mike's for dessert!

Cute place, perfect location

  • 4 of 5
This was my first time using vacationrentals.com. I was in Boston for a family event that was to take place in Martha's Vineyard; we wanted to come early and play in Boston first. This is a small but well appointed apartment in the heart of the North End. The best things about this apartment are:
- location. It's just off Salem Street so close to everything, but on a quiet side street, so no noise or traffic problems
- fully stocked with amenities in the bathroom, nice soft towels, plenty of soap
- kitchen very well equipped for a vacation rental, including coffee maker and wine glasses, as well as dishwashing soap
- fold out couch; we weren't sure if our adult son would join us, so we wanted this just in case
- living room is good sized for 2 or 3 to hang out in
- the apartment was absolutely spotless
- Mark and Caroline (owners) were very helpful and easy to deal with. Caroline sent us directions and info that we needed in advance of our arrival, which was great.

Not much on the downside but, there is construction going on next door. What used to be an apartment upstairs is being gutted and the downstairs space is a restaurant being remodeled. Not sure what time you can start working in Boston, but the construction started at 7am on Monday and Tuesday. My guess is that it wasn't supposed to be that early. Depending on when you plan to stay, you may want to check to be sure they are done with the work. Oh, and I would have liked a dresser in the bedroom so we could unpack; there is only a closet.

Other than that, we really enjoyed the apartment. I've been to Boston many times, and this is easy walking distance to tons of things you want to do as a tourist, as well as a T stop and lots of great restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thank you
You were great guests as well. Left the place in great conditions and we were very pleased to deal with you too.
We are sorry about the construction that was taken place, unfortunately we had no control over that building that is at the corner of the street ( it's a restaurant building a second floor) and it's Boston so The City allows them to start at 7 a.m. and we can't refute the City. In any case there is going to be some noise around sometimes since we are in the Heart of Boston closer to all the sites, restaurants, shops, parks, tourists sites, water park and the public transportation.

It was perfect for our family of four!

  • 5 of 5
It was a perfect spot for us. My cousin got married at the Museum of Science, and we decided to stay at Caroline and Mark's place. So glad we did! This place is in the middle of everything! Restaurants, bars, grocery, Mike's Pastry, a water park, The Garden, a farmers market, a water park...all outside the door, literally.

The layout was perfect, our girls slept on the pull out and loved it. We stayed in the bedroom in a very comfortable bed with nice pillows, soft sheets, and overall the decor of the place was very tasteful and relaxing. The kitchen was ready to rock, the bathroom was clean and recently redone, and there is a lot of storage space throughout.

There were a lot of little details that add up to make it feel like a home...cute compartments in the bathroom for towels, extra shampoo/soap/stuff (there was really decent first aid kit for when my kid cut her foot at the water park!), artwork, the decorative pillows, the rug in the front room was comfy, the armchair was a super place to relax.

And Caroline, who met us with the key, was just lovely. She showed up everything, she gave us recommendations, and she was basically a lovely human being, which to my wife and I is a big part of the equation.

If and when we return to Boston, we will definitely be calling up Caroline again. Since we went to a wedding, we didn't get nearly as much time exploring the neighborhood as I would like. But it is what it is. It's a good excuse to return!

Thanks so much for letting us use your place :)
