Boston Condo Rental Photos and Description
Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

We've been renting high-quality furnished accommodations for over 6 years, exclusively in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. The 'Chez Paul' apartment location is stellar, just 3 minutes walking distance to Boston Common, the Freedom Trail, an organic grocery store, a wine shop and many more conveniences and Boston attractions. Please note that our pricing is NET and includes all taxes, cleaning charges and payment fees.

Welcome to an adorable ground floor studio apartment, located in an 1860s building at the very top of the Hill and the center of downtown Boston. This true to the name, Boston pied a terre is eco-friendly and luxurious while simultaneously showing off its historical origination with exposed beams and re-claimed architectural elements. The apartment has very easy access to the street and adjacent patio courtyard. The owners mission is to live with a small footprint but without compromise.

Basics: The kitchen is very well appointed with beautiful slate counters, polished fixtures, deep sink w/disposal, Miele dishwasher, gas range/oven and full-sized refrigerator. The bed is a Beauty-Rest plush-firm queen with down pillows and sateen sheets. The bathroom has full-sized tub and shower with polished fixtures and original cross-hatch beams overhead. Washer/dryer is in the hall around the corner and there is place to keep a bike.

Electronics: LCD HDTV (w/ basic HD cable (CBS, PBS, ABC etc), DVD/CD player (w/ DVDs), wired/wireless internet, fax jack, ipod radio/mp3 speakers & cable, air-conditioner (window unit - summer season only), telephone & answering machine with free U.S. and Canada calling, hair-dryer.

Eco-Green: Aside from a great example of small-space design in a location that promotes walking and public transportation; bed linens are eco-certified and cleaning agents, paper supplies and soaps/shampoos are earth-friendly whenever possible. We recycle. Cloth shopping totes are hanging in the closet and the electricity is generated from wind.

Essentials: No smoking, no pets, no parking (ask), sleeps 2 maximum (no exceptions). Includes all utilities and furnishings, ground floor, direct access patio. The owner has written a very detailed manual for the apartment and for all services and restaurants in the neighborhood.

Expectations: Please note that Beacon Hill is on a hill, so there is a fair amount of walking if staying in this neighborhood. Also note that the bed is higher than a normal bed, as the dresser drawers are built underneath. We provide a small stepping stool if required, but this extra height may not be suitable for all guests.

We have other accommodations in the neighborhood with different profiles, so just ask.

Great location and far more comfortable than size

We can only echo what others have said –it’s a great location and the apartment is far more comfortable than just size would suggest.

We appreciated the eating suggestions – and found that several of them were packed Saturday night on Charles Street. A good sign. San Jose CA

Cosy apartment in a great location

I just loved this apartment - its location was ideal - great for seeing the sights and some fab eateries minutes away. The pack in the apartment gave us some good local tips.
The apartment is beautifully done out with everything that you could need, the umbrella certainly came in handy, and with all the storage once you've put all your bits away the apartment felt cosy rather than cramped.
The bed was so comfortable & as it's raised quite high I felt like the Princess & the Pea. The bath was also the ideal solution to help restore weary legs after walking around Boston.
I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Boston

Beautiful - But Tiny!

The studio is located in gorgeous Beacon Hill, in walking distance to Charles Street, the Boston Commons, the Boston Public Gardens and Newbury Street, for starters. The neighborhood consists of charming, old brick houses and cobblestoned sidewalks. I grew up in Boston and moved away 25 years ago. For me, this was a dream vacation to see beautiful Boston once again. The studio was a lovingly rebuilt basement apartment in a charming old house. The bed was a dream. The studio's size, however, detracted us from enjoying our stay there. The only place to get comfortable was on the bed. Me and my partner are two small women and even we found the size too small - it's 225 square feet. You have to store your clothes and place your suitcases in the closet immediately or you cannot move around. This would be a wonderful place for one person who plans on staying outside the studio until they come home to sleep.

Loved the “look” on the internet but the reality blew us both away! We have both had a wonderful stay here (but who wouldn’t) It is a class above, with it’s design, details and little touches, making it a very special place to stay. Feel very lucky to have found this place… why did we only book for 3 nights stay? Nevermind, I’m certain we’ll be back! Many many thanks.[additional emailed review]The property was truly excellent and what impressed us was the fact that the owner had left an absolutely brilliant inventory. We did try some of the restaurants and they were exactly as he described. The information provided by Paul made such a difference to our stay. The flat itself was a dream /stylish and comfortable. We are planning to come back next year for longer so we can go to all the places we did not have time to explore. We loved beacon hill and felt so at home there...it was very special holiday.

I’m in Boston on a business trip – great place to stay! Much better than a hotel! Love the location – Thank you for all the details in your great information booklet – very helpful. I was a little concerned that there would be no one to ask about things I would need, but you really covered everything in that booklet. Loved the kitchen, was so well stocked. The high speed internet. Tv- Yeah! Very comfortable place – you did a great job with the appointments. Thank you!

This place is a fantastic example of the power of thoughtful design! Surprising the visitor at every turn. The bed seems daunting at first – but turns out to be a fun adventure, and the details enable the visitor to feel completely at home or be moved to images of another time. The photos don’t do it justice! Thank you for sharing it with me.

This wee place is amazing. You’ve thought of everything, and more. Immaculate, tasteful and charming. Yes, good things do come in small packages.
