Overview

Boston Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4 (full size sofa bed). In the heart of everything

Boston is a beautiful, historical walking city - if you stay in the North End which is the focal point of all the Sights & Activities that every visitor to Boston wants to see. By staying in the North End you can enjoy ALL YOUR TIME in Boston instead of getting stuck trying to get to the attractions - waiting for over-crowded subways or taxis stuck in traffic. In the Historic North End (Little Italy) there are no hotels, so the only way to stay in the nicest part of town is to stay in a private home. Apartments in this area are generally quite small, but you will find this apartment large enough to be comfortable for 4.

This apartment is a few doors down from Paul Revere's House & the Freedom Trail & the Old North Church. In the Heart of the old Italian district, you are surrounded by many of the best restuarants in the city.

Fanueil Hall is across the street, this property is on the new Greenway (created by the Big Dig), and is three blocks from the Aquarium and Whale Watch Tours. This apartment is 4 blocks from the Celtics & Bruins at Boston Garden. You can walk thru Fanueil Hall to get to Beacon Hill and the Swan Boats on the Boston Public Garden... or take advantage of 4 different subway stops to get to Fenway, the Museums or Harvard Square

If the dates you want are unavailable, we have a couple other beautiful apartments that are also in the North End - so you can likely stay among our apartments and remain in the nicest, most historical, most interesting & convenient part of the city.

We can't be accountable or responsible for noise or disturbance from circumstance happening outside our unit or in the streets.

About Mark & Caroline

Mark & Caroline love to Travel and first started renting apartments for vacations in Europe. With this property, an opportunity arose for us to offer the same kind of great experience to other travellers that we always experience when we rent vacation apartments around the US and the rest of the world

Mark & Caroline purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mark & Caroline chose Boston

For us the North End of Boston is like taking a vacation in Europe. Since we live in an historic town outside of Boston called Lexington, and we have busy careers - we don't get to go to Europe as often as we would like. Caroline often says when she needs a get-away to renew herself and get the feeling that she has been away on a trip, she will often go and spend the day in the North End - and feel like she has been travelling abroad

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, this place is perfectly placed for our needs. If I plan better next year, I hope for a longer stay with you. Cheers

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here so much! We didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back. The apartment was perfect for the two of us and in a fantastic location. The bathroom is small but it did not bother us. We walked to everything except Fenway and Caroline and Mark gave us great directions on how to get there on the subway. We parked in the Government Parking Lot that was close but it was 45.00 a day and not 15.00 like the sign says. Our first time in Boston and certainly won't be our last and this is where we will stay again!!!

Great spot in the perfect North End Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days, extending a few days prior to the weekend, at this spot in the North End portion of Boston. It is perfectly situated in Little Italy within walking distance of a ton of great restaurants, bakeries and bars. After landing in Boston we grabbed the 66 shuttle to the water taxi dock and paid $10 to take us to the Aquarium. From the Aquarium it is a <10 minute walk to the apartment. Caroline and Mark were very communicative leading up to our stay and met up to give us the key along with the lay of the land. It is a great sized living room. We didn't stay in the apartment much and used it primarily to sleep. Everything was clean and neatly organized. If I had one recommendation, and this could be because I haven't done too many VRBOs, it would be to bring your own pillow:)

Owner's Response: Thank you Brooke for your review. We enjoyed having you at the apartment. It was great having guest like you guys who really appreciate the location and our place, we try to make everything possible for people to feel comfortable at the apartment however there are certain issues we have to be more standard with our choices, one of those is the pillows... We have just regular pillows ( comfortable enough) and we have many of them if people prefer to have more, but we are not able offer special types of pillows since many people have allergies or other conditions we have to offer just the basic standard ones so everybody will feel comfortable. We do suggest people to bring their own pillows if you need something more specific for your own needs and we totally understand. Thank you

Perfect starting point for a Boston vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this apartment. Caroline was a pleasure to meet. She is quite possibly the nicest person I have ever met! Both Mark & Caroline were very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions we had. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. Just down the street is a little market to stock up on food items. It is in the perfect location surrounded by lots of great restaurants, historical sights and a short walk to pretty much anywhere. My son and I used public transportation to get from and to the airport, but walked everywhere else within North Boston, the waterfront, Beacon Hill and across the river to Bunker Hill. If we are ever Boston again, we will be sure to stay here!

Wonderful place in heart of Boston

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Boston and this place was a big part of it. It's location is second to none. Caroline and Mark are very welcoming and take pride in hosting travellers. The apartment was clean and very comfortable for three people. I would highly recommend Caroline and Mark and will definitely be back.
