Beacon Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Just renovated studio apartment on fabulous Charles Street!

Completely renovated in the summer of 2012, this studio apartment is a joy to experience. Second floor walk-up with two large, sunny windows facing the back of the building. Very private and you don’t get Charles St. traffic noise. Non-working but gorgeous marble fireplace. The “small is beautiful” mantra fits in every way. It includes a fully equipped, extremely functional kitchen with new appliances, an eat-in kitchen counter, living room, desk, dining table and chairs and a cozy bed nook that is hidden from view. Quality linens and towels. The bathroom has a shiny new tub and vanity that fit in beautifully with the 1920’s black and white basket weave tile floor. The owner/architectural designer has anticipated your every need and provides you with a beautiful little package that is so inviting, it feels like you’ve stepped into your own new home. You'll love walking downstairs and being in the center of sweet Charles Street, with everything at your finger tips.

Fresh, cozy and comfortable. Staying here is a memorable and unique experience.

Free WiFi, a Hi-Fi radio with an iPod dock, 42 inch flat screen TV and DVD player with DVD collection, large walk-in closet.

About Robin

We are an architectural designer and social services counselor who live and work on Nantucket Island. In our spare time, we like to create 'homes away from home' and share them with friends and renting guests. We actually take a lot of pleasure anticipating one's every need in order to make each environment exceedingly comfortable and tasteful. Our children find it annoying to go to restaurants or hotels with us because we constantly deconstruct the design and reconstruct an ambiance that we would enjoy being in. An intimate, calm and comfortable ambiance is the key component to our success. We have no doubt you will feel that way in the spaces we have created on Beacon Hill. We have another apartment on Hancock St. as well.

Robin purchased this apartment in 2012

Another Fine Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Another fine time in Beantown, this time on Charles St. My wife and I have stayed here several times and each has been a great experience. The other reviews say it all about the location and nearby attractions. Apart from its cleanliness and quality of appointments, there is something so comfortable, so homey, so well thought out, so right about this apartment. If you’ve never had the apartment experience while traveling, give it a try. If you’re considering this apartment, you can’t go wrong.

Charles Street Charm!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this absolutely beautiful Charles Street apartment in late August of this year.

Having stayed in the Beacon Hill area the year before, we specifically looked for something right in the district's heart, and boy, this apartment did not disappoint! :)

The apartment itself is close to everything you could possibly need - beautiful stores, a Whole Foods, bars, restaurants... you name it!

Boston Common and its T stop are just a short walk away (less than 10 minutes), as is downtown Boston and the equally historic North End and Quincy Market (give or take 15-20 minutes, depending on how fast you walk!).

Boston is a city best explored on foot, so this apartment afforded us that amazing opportunity.

The interior of the apartment was just full of charm and original features - clean/spotless, very comfortable, a full kitchen, a TV, a very cosy bed... just an amazing use of space.

Robin is always just an email or call away, and we would like to (once again) thank her.

We will definitely think of this place the next time we visit Boston, and would have no doubt recommending it to others!

charm, comfort and convenience

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time (10 days) in this lovely, cozy apartment located on one of the best streets in Boston - both for the central location close to everything, and the charm of the shops and street itself. It was the perfect place to come back to after a long day of exploration. Everything you could possibly need is a few steps away or short walk. The bed is comfortable, and the linens provided feel luxurious. The space is tastefully decorated, and feels larger than it is due to the high ceilings and the clever design. One of my favorite features was the big walk-in closet with mirrored doors to hide away suitcases and have easy access to your clothes. I slept great because the room was very quiet and dark at night. It was also quiet during the day, as this unit faces the back of the building. Overall, a fantastic stay, one to remember, and I hope to be able to come back soon. Thank you R!

Ideally located for visiting the rest of the city, Charles St is Beacon Hill's main street. Catering mainly to the surrounding affluent neighborhood are wonderful food shops such as Savenour’s, upscale clothing boutiques, antique stores and enticing cafes and restaurants. At one point, this street earned the honor of 'the most civilized street in America”. The evidence is clear: graceful homes, pretty facades, well-tended gardens, flower pots all abloom – all pointing to a well loved and cared for neighborhood.

Beacon Hill is one of Boston's smallest and most historic neighborhoods, featuring rows of brownstones and grand townhouses. Within this area, the most exclusive is Louisburg Square, which until this day remains as one of Boston's most sought after, and expensive addresses. Louisa May Alcott lived there and John Kerry lives there now.

The area is also a treasure trove for fans of the famous local architectural icon, Charles Bulfinch (the man behind the nearby State House, among others), who designed many of the patrician homes on Beacon Hill.

The famous Boston Gardens and Commons are at one end of Charles Street and the other end takes you to Mass. General Hospital or the Boston Esplanade and walkway along the Charles River.
