This condo is in the center of it all when you want to really 'do' Boston. Across the street is the Fiedler foot bridge to the Esplanade. Three blocks away is the Newbury shopping area. Walk three blocks the other way and you are on Beacon Hill. The Freedom Trail is a couple of subway stops away. You can also walk to the theaters.
You don't want a car in Boston. You want to stay right in the middle of Back Bay. This place isn't only convenient, it is a beautiful example of Back Bay brownstone living. Take a look at the photos. It's gorgeous. The unit used to be a Gentleman's Parlor. Notice the ornate rosette on the ceiling and the lovely bay windows. What a great place to sit on a snowy day and read about American history.
My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at this condo for 3 weeks. It is located in a perfect location, peaceful street but within very close walking distance of Newbury and Boylston which are both very nice shopping and eating districts.
The house itself is absolutely lovely, the building itself is an old classical Boston House, and inside the condo is very cozy, comfortable and tastefully decorated.
All in all, I recommend this condo to anyone in a heartbeat!
The description and pictures of this property are exactly as stated and shown on the listing. Spotlessly clean with beautiful decor, a very comfortable four poster bed and working piano for those that can play. The studio also has wifi.I stayed at this studio for 9 days in September. It's situated on famous Beacon Street in the Back Bay Area of Boston. Centrally and ideally located and within walking distance of most Boston attractions. A taxi from the airport only cost me $25.The closest T station is Arlington which is only a few blocks away and no more than a 10 minute walk. I highly recommend you buy a Charlie Ticket if stopping more than a couple of days. It cost me $19 for a 7 day ticket, unlimited use and great value for money. Must see things to do are, the Freedom Trail, Boston Public Park, Boston Public Library, The Aquarium, Fenway Park Tour, the Harbour Front area and an absolute must is a trip up to the Sky Walk at the top of the Prudential Tower for breathtaking views of Boston and beyond.
The owner of the property was a pleasure to deal with. All transactions to do with the property were effortless and simple. My security deposit was refunded immediately after departure. All questions via email were answered within 24hrs. She went out of her way to assist me with getting to use my UK phone in US by doing her own research for me on service providers, networks and price plans then emailing me her findings. She also provided me with detailed instructions and options on how to get from the airport.
I would definitely stay here again if I'm fortunate enough to go back to Boston and I highly recommend this accommodation.
We are Bostonians who moved away four years ago and were eager to return to visit for two weeks as TOURISTS! Mary has a lovely property and she has thought of all everything one would want while here for a few days or for an extended period. High ceilings and large windows help make this studio apartment feel very spacious. Mary is very pleasant and really wants your stay to be successful. And did I mention the location? A short walk to wonderful shops and restaurants in the several nearby neighborhoods. We started many days with a run along the Esplanade and ended up on Charles St for a fun breakfast. The building is clean and quiet and well-managed.
My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful home for a week while looking at Boston colleges. This home is spotless, in a gorgeous neighborhood. We felt safe both in the neighborhood and in the condo as well. So much larger than a hotel room with all the amenities of home. Dealing with the home owner as well as the home manager was a pleasure. I hope to return to this home again and again. I highly recommend it!
This is a beautiful, spacious and spotless studio apartment with tons of charm located on Beacon Street in Back Bay. The pictures showing this property are completely accurate, the owner is helpful and the property managers make 'moving in' an easy experience. From here, Beacon Hill and Charles Street is a 10-12 minute walk. Massachusetts General Hospital is 10 minutes further up Charles. The Charles River Esplanade is less than two blocks north. There are several underground ("T") stations within a 10-15 minute walk. Newbury Street is an easy walk as are the Commonwealth Avenue pedestrian promenade, the Public Gardens and Boston Common. We did not rent a car and did not miss it for a second. (A 7-day 'Charlie' card for the subway is a $18 for an adult, available at most stations.) We cooked our breakfasts in the apartment (there's a DeLucca deli on Charles Street that carries most of what you'll need). All in all, this is a perfect spot for two people.
We loved our week long stay in this condo. It is the perfect size for two people and conventionally located to markets, parks, and shopping!
Thanks for your help, Mary. We appreciated all the brochures and maps in the condo. It made our decisions on what to do each day so much easier!
Two blocks from the Boston Public Garden and Commons, quick walk to fashionable Newbury Streets and Boylston shopping, theater district, charming Charles Street on Beacon Hill and easy access to the subway to go anywhere in Boston. It's the most convenient place to stay in town.
