Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

PICTURESQUE BEACON HILL, BOSTON'S HISTORIC CENTER! This 1,100 square foot, 3 bedroom condominium in the heart of Beacon Hill is perfectly situated for those wishing to enjoy the best of Boston. Occupying the 3rd and 4th floors of a small 19th century building, the recently renovated condo offers charm and comfort. High ceilings, wood floors throughout and lots of light from the many windows are the setting for an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture, plenty of books and art.

Please note there is no elevator, so it is two flights of stairs up from street level, and another flight of stairs in the condo from the main floor (living room, dining room, kitchen) to the bedrooms. There is an additional steep flight of stairs up to the roofdeck.

YOU WON'T NEED A CAR! Step out of the condo and you will find a day spa and yoga studio at street level. Walk to everything! One short block to Charles Street, with its cafes, boutiques, antique galleries and restaurants. Two blocks to the Public Garden, or to the Boston Common. Enjoy the Swan Boats in the summer, or walk to skating on Frog Pond in winter. Stroll down to the Esplanade and go for a run along the Charles River for a great view of the Boston skyline.

Boston's excellent subway system is just minutes away. Only 3 stops on the Red Line and you are in Harvard Square, or catch the Green Line to the MFA. In the summer, you will enjoy the comfort of central air conditioning and the views from the private roof deck. The small, but nicely fitted kitchen has everything for those who like to cook, including 2 ovens. In the marble-tiled bathroom, we replaced the bathtub with a large glass-enclosed shower with a bench and a rain-shower head. The 2 larger bedrooms have new queen mattresses, and the smaller bedroom has one twin bed.

Why Owner chose Massachusetts

Boston is one of the world's loveliest cities. Scenic and historic, it is small enough to be accessible and pedestrian-friendly, while also offering world-class art, restaurants and entertainment.

This was a great place in every sense.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place in every sense. We were able to go to most attraction and the most that it cost us for taxi was 7.00 dollars. We had everything needed; did not go without anything. All you needed to bring was shampoo and personal things - Hair dryer...... all provided.

we were actually within walking distance to most everything.

Try Mike's Cannoli’s well worth the wait in line.

Went to Eatilia in the prudencial center that was amazing.

Thank you Caroline for the amazing rental

K. Louie, April 2017

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in Caroline's Beacon Hill apartment. Caroline went above and beyond to make sure that every last detail was attended to, so that we would have everything we needed for our stay. Her apartment is clean, comfortable, and close to everything that Boston has to offer. The apartment is also loaded with handy information about restaurants, parking, transportation, Wi-Fi, shopping, etc., that proved to be very helpful. We truly felt like it was our home away from home while we were in Boston, and we would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Perfect Brownstone in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but a positive experience. The location was perfect for those wanting to be a tourist in Boston. Centrally located to everything. Quiet, high quality area. Walking distance if you like or several trolley tour stops very close by if you prefer to ride. House was adorable. Bedrooms were perfectly appointed, all needed amenities were there, cozy feel, clean, well stocked and prepared. Our son thought the roof top deck was really cool. Too bad it wasn't warmer to hang out there some more. Would go back again in a heartbeat. So glad this family chose to share their home.

The condo was clean, comfortable, and perfectly situated. We particularly loved the Beacon Hill neighborhood - friendly, historic, safe, and convenient. Caroline was also a lovely, accommodating, and communicative host. I consider us lucky to have stayed here.
