BEAUTIFUL BEACON HILL! PRESTIGIOUS, HISTORIC HEART OF BOSTON! SWEET 1-BD CONDO.

Boston Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 2-4

Renovated, sweet one-bedroom condo. The 500 square foot, 2nd floor apartment (that's a 1st floor in Europe) in an attractive brick building is in the very center of Boston's historic district on coveted Beacon Hill. Two blocks to the Boston Common and Public Garden! One block to the shops, boutiques and restaurants on Charles Street.

New kitchen, new bathroom, spacious bedroom, lofty ceilings and plenty of light from the tall windows make this place sparkle!

Quaint brick buildings, cobblestones and gas lamps, restaurants, cafes, fabulous bakeries and cute boutiques - this is your neighborhood. Leave your car behind and walk to everything!

With its attention to detail and comfort, this condo will welcome you back after a busy day exploring all that Boston has to offer.

Start your day with a run along the river, then take in some history on the Freedom Trail. Head over to Newbury Street for serious shopping, and in the evening choose from dozens of restaurants ranging from cozy pubs to world renowned, or catch a show in the Theatre District - it is all within a few minutes scenic walk.

For an enthusiastic appraisal of the neighborhood, read what VRBO.com (HomeAway's partner) wrote about our 3-bedroom condo in the same building: www.vrbo.com/285427.

The Unique Benefits of this Condo: Location, location! Beacon Hill is the heart of this historic city, the most central location from which to explore the best of Boston. All the major tourist attractions are easily accessible, most of them within a short walk. At the same time, Beacon Hill is a real neighborhood with grocery stores, a bakery, a post office, as well as boutiques and cafes, where you will feel welcome and at home.

Super clean, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is super clean and comfy...from the lovely location that you can feel safe walking at all hours to the spotless bathroom, we felt like we had come home when we walked in the door. The condo is so comfortable and Caroline has thought of everything a visitor might need. The location is less than a two mile walk to practically everything and close to public transit. It's right behind Charles St and tons of shopping, just a block and a bit from the Public Gardens and Starbucks. There was free yoga on the Common and a free orchestral concert in a nearby park, and there are so many awesome little restaurants that are less than a 5 minute walk.
Caroline was prompt about returning all email and our security deposit, and gave flawless and detailed instructions on everything from getting to the condo to getting logged on to the WiFi. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

wonderful apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5
This is a gem of an apartment, it was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and everything anyone could need. Caroline (the owner) was so helpful and friendly when it came to booking and answered ALL our questions afterwards. Beacon Hill is a great area, The Paramount was a great breakfast stop on our first morning, it was so easy to walk to Boston Common and the trolley stop was only around the corner at the meeting house. We had a wonderful evening meal at 75 Chestnut (a short walk). All the directions and information we received was ideal and informative. Cannot recommend this apartment enough! thank you for letting us stay here! I hope we will be back one day in delightful, exciting, amazing Boston!

Beacon Hill close to everything

  • 5 of 5
This was my 2nd trip to Boston, the 1st time 2 friends and I stayed in the top 3 bedroom condo-it was awesome. This time my husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom condo. Awesome again! This place is footsteps from Boston Common & Public Gardens(both beautiful) steps from Charles st and all its charm. Steps from trolly and a block to subway. If you don't have a car even if you do, this is the place....location,location,location. Caroline is so sweet and accommodating , everything is at your fingertips. Look no further for a 1 bedroom or three bedroom YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. IT IS COZY AND CLEAN AND CLOSE TO ALOT. Lots of steps.

Owner thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5
My young adult daughter and I spent 5 wonderful nights in this townhouse. The location is fabulous; we walked everywhere we needed (and wanted) to go in 20-30 minutes…except Harvard, which required a subway trip from a station ~5 minutes away.
Carolyn, the owner, thought of everything to make our stay a pleasure. She had soft mattress covers for the sofa bed, extra sheets, towels, bath mats, well-stocked kitchen, fans… It was amazing! Lots of small shops and restaurants were within a 5 minute walk, including the venerable "Cheers." We felt quite safe walking to and from the theater district at night, as well as to and from the historic and harbor districts. I hope we'll be able to come back in a year or so; this town house will definitely be our number 1 choice for a place to stay!

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5
The owner was very communicative throughout the whole rental process. The apartment is so perfectly located, with so many restaurants and the subway a short walk away. We did not have a car and didn't need one. And a block from Beacon Hill. The apartment itself was perfect for 3 of us. Very clean and well equipped. We all would definitely recommend this place to all our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for the review. It was kind of you to take the time and I appreciate it.
However, there is a typo: you say "a block from Beacon Hill".
We are in fact right in the center of Beacon Hill, not a block away. I think you meant to say "a block from Charles Street." Just don't want this to be confusing for future guests.
Thanks again for having been lovely guests!
Warm wishes,
Caroline

Great

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place. The communication was clear. The place was clean and as described. But the location...it is close to the red line and we went for a graduation at Harvard and this was only 3 stops away. The commons and public garden are a block away. The food for both morning coffee and evening dinners were but a block away. I talked to other people who tried to get a place in Boston and all and I mean all were envious of this place.
I scored so many points with my family for booking this place.
