About the property

1 bedroom apartment in Boston's best neighborhood

Steps from the Boston Common and Public Garden, Freedom Trail, the Charles River, and the gold-domed State House, this charming 1 bedroom condo comfortably sleeps 4. Very close by are Faneuil Hall, the Esplanade, Mass General Hospital, the North End, Boston Garden, Newbury Street and Back Bay. And virtually all of Boston is easily accessible via the two nearby subway lines, including Harvard and Harvard Square, MIT, Fenway Park, Boston University, the South End and the Seaport District.

Our condo is a very private garden level unit with its own entrance. It has a fully equipped kitchen including a microwave, dishwasher and disposal; a living room with a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable; high-speed wifi. The bathroom has a tub and shower, a combined washer/dryer, and a heated toilet seat with built-in bidet :-). The bedroom has a queen-sized platform bed with plenty of drawer space. The living room has a comfortable couch, which converts to a comfortable queen size sofa bed, a love seat, a dining area, and a working fireplace. We also supply luxury linens and towels.

Beacon Hill, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston, is known for its colonial brick row houses with beautiful doors, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, and gas lamps. Beacon Hill is quiet and safe neighborhood, and one of the most desirable in Boston. There are many restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs in the area, and interesting shops on nearby Charles Street.

It is fifteen minutes by taxi to the airport for about $25 or twenty-five minutes by public transportation for $2.50. South Station (which has the subway, Amtrak, and a bus terminal) is four stops away on the nearby Red Line subway and North Station is a fifteen minute walk.

You do not need a car to tour all of Boston. But if you do have a car, note that parking is limited. There is garage parking in the area ranging in price from $15 to $35 per day.

No smoking in or near the condo!

About Carol Tepper

My husband and I live in Lexington, which is a fairly near suburb to Boston so we know the area well and can help if you have questions about area attractions. We love spending time in Boston as well as traveling around the US and abroad.

Carol Tepper purchased this condo in 2014

Why Carol Tepper chose Massachusetts

We have found that we like to spend time in the city and decided that owning a condo to use ourselves sometimes would be a better alternative to expensive, impersonal hotel rooms. This also allows us to share our love of the area with others that would like to come into Boston.

What makes this condo unique

We love the Beacon Hill area because of the uniqueness of the neighborhood, but also our building was built in 1890 and it has a charm that you would never find in a modern building. Our condo has a private entrance and is on a relatively quiet street for being in the heart of the city.

From the City of Boston website: One of Boston's oldest communities, Beacon Hill gets its name from a beacon that once stood atop its hill to warn locals about foreign invasion. Approximately one square mile in size, Beacon Hill is bound by Beacon Street, Bowdoin Street, Cambridge Street and Storrow Drive. Its architecture and lay- out is reflective of old colonial Boston, consisting of brick row houses with beautiful doors, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, narrow streets, and gas lamps. Beacon Hill is also home to the Massachusetts State House and America's first African Meeting House. Charles Street, the neighborhood's main thoroughfare, is lined with antique shops and restaurants. Beacon Hill has been home to many notable Americans, including Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Homes, Daniel Webster, Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, and Senator John Kerry.

My husband and I stayed at Carols condo over a weekend for our first visit to Boston. It was great, well equipped with everything you need and Carol was so friendly and helpful. This is such a better option than a hotel, it really lets you live like a local!

Charming condo and best possible location in Boston

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We loved our stay! This was our first VRBO experience, and our priorities were a top-notch owner and a top-notch location. Both requirements were exceeded! Carol went above-and-beyond, at the last minute making it possible for us to arrive a night earlier than planned. Her welcome was heart-warming and informative, and she responded immediately to a minor property issue during the stay. The location can't be beat. We ditched our rental car and walked or took the T everywhere, and felt safe walking "home" after dark. The condo had everything we needed, and was comfortable (including the bed!) and clean. Highly recommended!

Great location in Beacon Hill

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and will definitely be coming back. The condo location is perfect for restaurants, markets, walk to Boston Common and Boston Garden, 'Cheers', downtown, etc. Kitchen was well equipped and had the the basic seasonings and oils which was very nice, bedroom is kind of small but the bed is super comfortable. Carol was a pleasure to work with and provides a very detail book with everything you need to know about the condo. We loved it!

We had a wonderful stay here. The apartment had everything we needed. From this location we could walk to most things and then used Charlie pass for a few trips. Loved our visit to Boston!
