Overview

Beacon Hill 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.

Why Owner chose Boston

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.

Awesome apartment, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

I lived in Boston for 11 years during undergraduate and grad school. I rented the apartment with my two best friends from grad school, one of whom actually grew up in Boston; we know the area well. All of us were beyond impressed with this place. You simply could not stay in a better location: one block from the Public Garden; about 5 min walk to the Charles/MGH T stop; in Beacon Hill (the cutest and most historic area of Boston); a quick 5-10 min walk to the start of the Freedom Trail; and around the corner from a Pete's Coffee (or a Starbucks if that is your preference) as well as the amazing local bakery Tatte, and literally in the same building as the in-demand gourmet pizza place Figs. The apartment itself is homey, sophisticated, comfortable, perfect...it has everything, and I mean everything (including a blender!) that you might need. I associate Boston apartments with a lack of dishwasher and washing machine, but this place actually has both. And the bathroom, with the rain shower head...and the roof deck (I'm afraid of heights and still thought it was great).... The bed I used was super comfortable too! Caroline has the whole process set up in a completely transparent manner with easy to follow instructions, and she is friendly and helpful. We had a completely enjoyable and flawless visit. All I can say is, if this apartment is available, STAY HERE. The only thing some might gripe about is a lack of elevator but trust me its worth the effort.

Perfect location - central to everything!

  • 5 of 5

You just can't beat staying in historic Beacon Hill. The apartment is great - modern kitchen and bathroom with everything else left as authentic. Love the cozy TV nook off the living room.

Super fast return of the security deposit. We will definitely rent again with Caroline.

Lovely Historic Boston Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 4 night stay in this beautiful home in the historic Beacon Hill area of Boston, travelling as a family of four, including 2 teenage sons. The arrangements with Caroline were perfectly smooth. The property itself is spotlessly clean, full of character and includes everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's in a great neighbourhood with lots of nearby shops and restaurants. We didn't require any transport and were able to walk everywhere, including down to the Aquarium to join the Duck Tour and also whale watching. This property worked out far better than a hotel for us and we would highly recommend to other visitors.

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!)
