This cozy ground floor condo is in a fabulous location in central Boston - the Back Bay on Beacon St between Arlington and Berkeley St. It is a modernized, luxury Victorian brownstone. It is a quiet condo building in an upscale neighborhood. We feel most comfortable with guests who have had previous positive air bnb reviews and are over age 30. It is our approach for a safe experience for everyone involved - ourselves, our neighbors, and our property. Many thanks for your understanding.
Bedroom - There is a queen sized bed in the bedroom, which comfortably fits 2 people. It's a brand new Beautyrest mattress, purchased in October 2016 with memory foam pillows. There is also a sofa that pulls out into a queen-sized bed, which can fit 2 people.
Kitchen - It is updated with stainless steel appliances, a spiffy dishwasher, and a new set of pots and pans!
Dining room - It's a convertible table, so that it can be stowed away to make extra space. It seats 4.
Bathroom - We have stocked it with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash for you! We supply a hairdryer and extra soft toilet paper. Fluffy towels are provided.
Washer/Dryer - Available to you in the building on the ground level (right next door!)
Wifi internet is available.
Guests will have access to the entire condo except for a storage closet, which we keep our cleaning supplies in.
We live about 15 minutes away. We prefer to personally check in our guests to say hello, show you the space, as well as hand you the keys. Afterwards, we're a phone call away if you need anything, but we will happily give you your privacy. :)
No pets. (Not even the cutest puppy)
Quiet hours after 9pm.
We kindly ask our guests to not loiter in the hallways. Because the building is so old, the walls are thin. We want to respect our neighbors; Many are in the medical field and work odd hours, so sleep is incredibly valuable to them.
I am Boston born and bred. I went to elementary, high school and university in this incredible city. My husband, Jason, grew up in Hong Kong and came to Boston for university. He and I travel internationally for several months durng the year, but always come back to this city for its incredible food, fun atmosphere, and because it's our home. We live in the 'burbs (about 10 minutes away) with our Siberian Husky.
The two of us have grown up traveling. We've experienced five-star accommodations from our previous "business" careers in management consulting and accounting. We have also traveled through the Jordanian desert sleeping in Bedouin tents and with Northern Thailand families in bamboo huts. The common denominator that we feel makes a wonderful accommodation is when a home-y and comfortable space. We've designed the apartment with this in mind. All ceramic pottery pieces were designed by my Aunt Sally. All framed prints and canvases were photographed by Jason or myself.
When traveling, our main focus is always food. We love our meats and seafood. The one thing that makes my eyes pop is dessert. Jason is all about his red wine, scotch, and other classic drinks. Our second focus is the local experience. There is so much more to a city than historical buildings, duck boat tours, and the Freedom trail (all of which are amazing). There are the North End side streets for delicious lobster rolls, local markets (like the South End SOWA), and really interesting one-day volunteer opportunities.
