About Marie

Born in Boston and love to travel, this is the perfect location.

Marie purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Marie chose Boston

Very convenient to attractions, it is at the Freedom Trail and next to the Old North Church. It is also convenient to 3 subway stations, the financial district and MGH.

What makes this apartment unique

The old, charming building was gutted and rehabbed using high quality materials. One entire brick wall with two fireplaces gives it a quaint view. Modern with old charm.

Great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
Loved the location, a view of the Old North Church every time we left the property. The unit looked exactly like the pictures and was very well equipped. It was nice to unpack in the large walk in closet instead of living out of a suitcase. Everything was clean and in working order, comfortable bed and a good shower. Although no one met us, the keys were sent to us ahead of our departure and found the area to be very secure. Despite having to go down a short alley it was well lit and had two doors, one to enter the building and one for the individual unit. You can pick up the Freedom Trail across the street and I would also recommend the JFK Museum & Library ( need to take the T but it is only about an 8 minute walk) and the tour of Fenway Park. If you like architecture don't miss the Boston Public Library near Copley Square. As far as nearby restaurants we liked My Cousins Place for breakfast ( very lively conversations among the locals), Ernesto's for pizza, Al Dente for Italian and Modern Pastry for sweets ( recommended by the fireman at the station nearby - they were very friendly and a good source of info about the neighborhood.). I would definitely recommend this unit..Boston is such a walkable city that you don't need to be in the heart of the city.

Close with Boston Charm

  • 5 of 5
Literally less than a half block to the Old North Church puts you in the Heart of the action on the North End. A block to Lil Italy and reasonable walk to the Subway makes this a great choice and was perfect for us. The apartment looks like the pics and is as advertised...although having a usable patio may be a bit of a stretch.

Was also our first experience with VRBO. All worked well and expectations were me or exceeded.

Owner's Response: We are happy these guests enjoyed their visit. They mentioned the patio was a bit of a stretch. We removed the patio furniture because there are building supplies for a condo owner, who is adding another floor. We will not have use of the patio until next spring.

Couldn't have asked for a better place!

Couldn't have asked for a better place!

This place was amazing. Not only was it impeccably decorated, but the use of space was excellent. It couldn't have been more than 600 sq feet, but it felt open and spacious and was absolutely adorable. It was maybe 100 feet from Old North Church, so if you are planning on doing the freedom trail, you are right in the center of it. A 10 minute walk to the subway or bus station and near dozens of local restaurants. It's in the center of the north end/italian district. We ate at a different place for every meal and they were all outstanding, and you know these places must have been good, because they all had a wait of an hour and a half if you didn't make a reservation (which we did).

The only issue we had during our stay is that one of the neighbors must have forgotten to turn off their stereo and so music could be heard coming from their place all night long. But that only happened once, and it didn't really bother me.

Definitely worth the money. I'd definitely recommend this to my friends or family who go to Boston!

More Than We Expected

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I decided to spend a weekend in Boston after visiting Grandchildren in Maine, before flying home to North Carolina. It was a last minute decision and I thought we could be making a mistake, since I typically spend much more time researching any properties to stay at. After reading the previous reviews, I promptly sent an email to Bed and Breakfast Associate Bay Colony. I received a call the next morning and was informed the property was available. The representative made all necessary arrangements for such a quick pick (we were flying out in two days!). She was professional, courteous, and pleasant. Still apprehensive, we arrived at the location. Wow! It was everything and more, as suggested by previous reviewers and promised by the rental agency! It is in the heart of the North End/Italian End of Boston. You walk out, and the Freedom Trail picks up across the street. Look right, and you will see the Old North Church with it's courtyard and Paul Revere statue. Right across the street and on the corner is a perfect coffee shop with excellent breakfast choices and service. You are steps away in the evening from great Italian food. Everything you need for Historic Boston is an enjoyable walk away. Since driving/parking in Boston can be both expensive and difficult, we returned our rental car after driving back from Maine to the airport and used the Subway system and/or walked to everything. Then, back at night to this perfect, clean, and truly, "more than we expected" studio apartment. Thank you to the previous reviewers and Bed and Breakfast Bay Colony for leading us to an excellent and much needed couple time away! We will definitely stay there again!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
This condo is a hidden gem! It was clean, well stocked, has a comfortable bed, plenty of tv channels and also wifi. Excellent location, you can walk or take the T to pretty much anywhere you want to go. Many, many restaurants, bakeries, little convenience stores and launderymats close by. We will definitely stay here again!!!
