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.

Great location! Great management!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for sites, restaurants, shopping, transit and necessities. Caroline is incredibly responsive with getting you into the apartment initially and anything during the stay (not that we had any problems, just some questions). The apartment is well stocked with kitchen utensils and appliances, as well as bathroom needs, towels, linens and blankets. Great view from the living room of the other historic buildings on the street. Second floor (American) walk-up is easy.

Wonderful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had a great experience staying at Caroline's apartment. The location was perfect - just a few minutes' walk to the T station which will take you anywhere you need/want to go. But step out the door and you are in the heart of beautiful Beacon Hill with all the charming shops and restaurants. The Common and Public Garden are just a few blocks away.

The apartment itself was very clean and full of charm. It is a really good size for Beacon Hill (some places are really tiny!) and was very comfortable for the two of us. The couch also converts to a bed so you could accommodate more people if needed. The apartment has a full kitchen, complete with all the necessary basics.

Caroline was an excellent host - very easy to communicate with and very responsive, she gave excellent instructions for accessing the apartment, and she also gave us the privacy and freedom to enjoy the place on our own. I will definitely stay here again.

Amazing Location with Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at a lot of short term rental homes and Caroline is one of the best people we've ever dealt with. Very responsive and very quickly for any issues that may come up. Flexible with her check in and check out times if she can accommodate. Cute apartment in a fabulous location. Lots of linens and kitchen items provided. New sofa bed (not pictured) is pretty and comfortable. We loved it and will be back!

Everything you would ask for in a place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Everything you would want and expect from a vacation rental. Great location. We walked to everything but Kennedy's Library. Had no idea it was 2 blocks from the Cheers inspiration bar. Absolutely great food in the North End.

We had a late flight out the day we left. Owner was very accommodating to allow us to stay later. Unfortunately, for us and good for her, she rented it for the day we left. I would say ask her if you have a need for a special accommodation she may help you out

Spent an amazing 5 days exploring Boston and Salem, and this was the perfect location to do it from. Everything is within walking distance. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed. Caroline was great about reaching out and responding to questions. Highly recommend this place!
