Overview

Boston Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Great property, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this elegant and homely property. The location couldn't have been better. Caroline was very helpful and made sure we had our key. Would highly recommend. Thank you, Caroline.

Comfortable, very convenient place to stay in Boston!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our few days in Boston. The location of the condo made it easy to get around, and so convenient to the Commons/Garden! All the amenities we needed were there, except for tissues, which would have been nice. Our kids did very well with the stairs even though they are quite steep and narrow. We loved the old Boston feel of the condo and loved being on Beacon Hill. We would highly recommend it! Additionally, any sort of store or restaurant you might want is less than a block away. But, you don't get the noise because it's just off of the main street (Charles St.). If we come back to Boston we'll certainly stay here again (if it's available). As we say in Hawaii, Mahalo! (Thank you!)

The perfect spot, close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the experience of living like a true Bostonian for a week. Beacon Hill is a very charming area with lots to see. Caroline's place is spotlessly clean and well stocked. The nearby market had everything we needed (pricey, but I expected that). It was soooo much nicer to have space to spread out after being together all day. We love each other, but we also like to have some alone time. My husband attended a convention at the BCEC and found it was super easy, efficient and cheap to use Uber to and from here. As Caroline states many places, there are a lot of stairs, so make sure that isn't an issue for you. It was a great experience.

Great location, nice place

  • 5 of 5

This location is great for anywhere you want to go in Boston. We lived in Boston many years ago and knew this would be an optimal location to travel from. It made it convenient to have good restaurants close by. The place is well kept and comfortable. All the comforts of home are provided. The roof deck is nice to have. We were there with our two teens and found everything about it just right for our week. The only recommendation would be that the owner clean out some of the many, many books throughout the place. It just makes it look cluttered and less spacious. We highly recommend this choice for your travels to Boston.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfectly located in Beacon Hill. It is surrounded by cute restaurants, shopping, and great bars. The original Cheers is right around the corner. It was a few blocks from the Boston Commons. Loved the area and how safe it was. The apartment was up two flights of stairs that made it difficult with all of our luggage but it worked out. The apartment was very clean and loved some of the original character. The shower was awesome because it had two heads! We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

A wonderful apartment in the heart of Beacon Hill

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this unit. My family and I enjoyed our recent stay in Boston tremendously. The apartment is fully furnished with all of the charm and necessities one can think of. We loved the multi headed shower and rain shower faucet. My kids LOVED the 3rd floor deck overlooking beautiful Boston. The whole apartment was very clean and plenty spacious for my family of 5. The place was so convenient to everything we didn't want to leave. During our stay we walked to the Public Gardens, went to the Esplanade several times, and even walked to Fanueil Hall. I would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Boston. Thanks Caroline for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment. We loved it!!
