Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 2-4

Renovated, sweet one-bedroom condo. The 500 square foot, 2nd floor apartment (that's a 1st floor in Europe) in an attractive brick building is in the very center of Boston's historic district on coveted Beacon Hill. Two blocks to the Boston Common and Public Garden! One block to the shops, boutiques and restaurants on Charles Street.

New kitchen, new bathroom, spacious bedroom, lofty ceilings and plenty of light from the tall windows make this place sparkle!

Quaint brick buildings, cobblestones and gas lamps, restaurants, cafes, fabulous bakeries and cute boutiques - this is your neighborhood. Leave your car behind and walk to everything!

With its attention to detail and comfort, this condo will welcome you back after a busy day exploring all that Boston has to offer.

Please note, there is no washer/dryer in the apartment, but there are plenty of laundry facilities on Charles Street.

The Boston Common Garage at Zero Charles St is just steps away.

Start your day with a run along the river, then take in some history on the Freedom Trail. Head over to Newbury Street for serious shopping, and in the evening choose from dozens of restaurants ranging from cozy pubs to world renowned, or catch a show in the Theatre District - it is all within a few minutes scenic walk.

The Unique Benefits of this Condo: Location, location! Beacon Hill is the heart of this historic city, the most central location from which to explore the best of Boston. All the major tourist attractions are easily accessible, most of them within a short walk. At the same time, Beacon Hill is a real neighborhood with grocery stores, a bakery, a post office, as well as boutiques and cafes, where you will feel welcome and at home.

Great Property, Great Location in a Wonderful City

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days in Boston and were located steps from the Boston Common in the heart of Beacon Hill. A short 20 minute walk through the downtown area to the waterfront and Quincy Market. The Charles River was around the corner from where we stayed and we strolled Newbury Street for most of a day with its intriguing retail and restaurants. A 35 minute walk to Fenway Park where we took in a couple of ball games and just walking along Charles Street with its interesting places made this location number 1 in our minds. When we return to Boston we will seek out Caroline's place once again. We have nothing but great things to say about our experience with Caroline and the condo is in a absolutely perfect location. Definitely 5 stars in our mind

Great Location and Helpful Ower

  • 5 of 5

Every thing was great!! Our parents have always wanted to see the Boston Pops in concert on July 4th and this property in Beacon Hill was an easy walk to the Esplanade. There are great restaurants near by and plenty to see and do in the area. My brothers and I found the owner pleasant to work with and will definitely stay here if we are in Boston again.

Location Location

  • 4 of 5

We were so pleased with the location of this property! Just a few steps from parks, shopping and restaurants. I love being able to just walk out the door in a city and feel more a resident than a visitor.

Nice accommodations---not fancy but very comfortable.

Fantastic location and very acceptable. Apartment needs some attention to details.

  • 3 of 5

The location on Beacon Hill and Charles Street was awesome. Building was quiet and the apartment had everything we needed. Some attention to interior details would make for a better match of expectation.
