Love the North End - strolling by the waterfront or shopping at the markets. Great festivals in the summer - great restaurants all year!

Joanne Spitz purchased this condo in 2005

Why Joanne Spitz chose Boston

Great location day and night 12 months a year

What makes this condo unique

Great neighborhood. Close to T . Most places are so close just walk! Advantages of a busy area but on the back of the building - no street noise.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My 6'5" son and I stayed here for a week. He slept like a baby on the fold out futon/couch=it is really like two single mattresses next to each other. Great view of the Boston's Custom House Clock Tower from living area window. Walking distance to two 'T' stops . Stairs are easy up to this second story walk up, in the midst of history: North Church, Paul Revere's house, etc. Aromas of the finest Italian food at night and world class bakeries in the morning. Tiny, well equipped kitchen. Bedroom is comfy. Air conditioners are quiet. We loved the experience. Best part was the fun, delightful communications with the owner. It is CLEAN!

First Time to Boston

  • 5 of 5

We had a short stay in Boston but we had BIG adventures and our accommodations were wonderful. I loved staying in this apartment. Nina and Margaret were both very helpful and attentive - and they were only a phone call away if I needed anything. Eliizabeth, the owner, was very pleasant and professional to deal with. We arrived earlier in the day than we expected, the apartment was ready and we were able to unload our car - take a shower and start sight seeing immediately. We were in town on our tour of MLB ball parks - and I was nervous that we were a bit too far from Fenway - but it was perfect. We actually walked to the park and enjoyed the sights and pubs along the way. We took a cab back from the game which worked out well. The neighborhood was very friendly and safe - we walked up to Bunker Hill in the evening and walked to all the pubs and restaurants at night too. The apartment was furnished with everything that we needed. I would rent this place again in a second. My only suggestion would be to add a full length mirror somewhere so when getting dressed you can 'check yourself out". The sky lights provide enough light in the daythime, but at night and in the evening, there is not a lot of light in the bathroom.

Renting this apartment helped make our trip to Boston an enjoyable experience. We LOVED it. Don't hesitate to rent this if it is available and you are going to Boston. The sights pictures and descriptions were accurate. The apartment was VERY clean.

The BEST place to stay in Boston!!

  • 5 of 5

This review is LOOOONG overdue. My husband and I went to Boston last July for Independence Day and stayed at this apartment. Our trip was amazing and the apartment was a huge contributor. The location is FANTASTIC. The food, bars and coffee in the neighborhood - some 24 hours a day - are worth it all by itself, then you throw in the history and sites within walking distance and you really can't beat it. We really felt like we were experiencing living in Boston versus feeling like tourists.

About the apartment itself: There was a slight miscommunication between us and the owner when we arrived but she made it right ASAP going above and beyond our expectations. It was clean, clean, clean and great to be able to cook and eat in from time to time. It's a good size for 2 - 3 people, a little tight, but cozy.

We were thrilled with our trip and loved staying at this apartment in the North End. We will definitely be back and would love to stay again. Highly recommend!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a four night stay here. We brought our 13 year old grandson to visit Boston. The location was better than perfect. The place was spotless, well equipped with anything one might need. It is exactly as presented and the owner sent lots of helpful information in advance. We would highly recommend this listing to anyone.
