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.

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.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY, IN AN IDEAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights surrounding the Boston Marathon this year. The apartment is in excellent condition, with all of the amenities of home. Our hostess, Caroline, is gracious and exceptionally responsive to questions or any issues that might arise. The location is utterly perfect, within walking distance of days and days of the best that Boston has to offer. Can't wait to return!

CHARMING CONDO IN BEAUTIFUL BEACON HILL

  • 5 of 5
The two of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo! One block away is Charles St. with shops and charming restaurants like Figs and Panificio. We didn't have a car but the T was an easy few blocks away–not a bad walk, even in March, and convenient for visiting colleges. We loved coming back each afternoon to this charming, well-stocked condo; it's what truly made our vacation memorable and would definitely stay here again!

This apartment is located in the middle of BEAUTIFUL Beacon Hill. Darling shops, restaurants, sites, and Boston Common within an EASY walk. We did have a rental car overnight one night and parked it in a garage at the other end of Boston Common, and no problems there. The apartment was clean and well stocked - we had everything we needed. We slept 4 comfortably : ) We will def visit Boston and this apartment again!

BEACON HILL FAVORITE.

  • 5 of 5
This property is located in our favorite area of Boston, Charles Street, right at the bottom of Beacon Hill. It was convenient, attractive, very comfortable and clean. After a long day it was so nice to return to this apartment. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. She mailed the key to us along with all pertinent information and promptly returned our security deposit when we checked out. A couple of our personal favorite restaurants on Charles Street are the Beacon Hill Bistro (for fine dining and a great little bar) and Figs for more casual fare. The Boston Commons is steps away. Great shopping awaits as well. We'll be back!
