This studio, located smack dab in the center of Boston, is used only for short-term rental i.e. the closets and such are empty, but cooking equipment, linens are complete. It's a separate apartment from my living space. Real queen-sized bed. Located in the rear of the building results in very quiet city living. Need to climb 2 flights of stairs (see photo.) Great for a quiet person or couple. No smoking. Five night minimum except 12/1 to 4/11/18, when monthly 1900$ for 1 person only.
This fully furnished studio apartment is in a 1860s, owner occupied townhouse, located in the historic district of Beacon Hill. It is smack dab in the center of Boston, just two blocks to the Boston Common and Public Garden, and equal distance to the Charles River Esplanade. You will be steps away from the bustle and vibrancy of Charles St., Beacon Hill's main shopping street, on which there are excellent restaurants of various Zagat ratings (and costs), boutiques, art galleries, jewelry stores, gift stores, bakeries, cafes, small food stores, dry cleaners with laundry services, shoe repair, florists, chocolate/nut store, and the such. There is a Whole Foods within one-half mile, two small boutique food stores on Charles Street, more coffee shops than one could possibly consume coffee (two Starbucks, one DD, a Peets and several excellent indies), a well-stocked drug store with friendly service, and a hardware store (honored with Best in the USA award) with equally cordial service and a multiplicity of supplies. The Back Bay is close by with more than enough places to spend lots of money. In less than a ten-minute leisurely walk you are at the Red Line's MGH/Charles St T station, or through the Public Garden to the Green Line's Arlington St T station, and both the Orange and Blue lines are easily assessable by foot. In a word: location.
The studio is small size, as are most Beacon Hill apartments, but has all the amenities that you need, including for staying in and cooking. The shower measures 30" X 30". One guest, from South America, thought it very small, while the next guest, from NYC, thought it was not. Hopefully for you it is 'just right.'
Because this apartment is dedicated to my personal guests and short-term rentals you will find the closet empty. No need to push over my personal belongings! The kitchenette and bathroom are fully supplied with everything you will need. There is: WiFi; TV with cable; room air conditioner; free library; hard wood floors with oriental carpets; photographs and paintings along with other decorations to make you feel at home.
The studio has its own locked entrance off of the public hallway. Guests do not have access to my part of the house.
I will send instructions on obtaining the front door key, from a lock box, and how to get to the studio. You let yourself in. I will meet you then or later.
There are some unique things while you are here, such as: chocolate factory tours; beer tours; kayaking on the Charles River; the Duck boat tours that splash down in the Charles River; old graveyards with the graves of three signatories to the Constitution; the Boston Athenaeum, a most wonderful private library that will give you a glimpse into the Boston Brahman life style (tours are available for the public); film archive at Harvard; farmers markets; whale watches; and numerous museums and theaters. If any of the Boston sports teams are in a play-off you can bet that the duck statues and George Washington, both in the Public Garden, will be wearing the team's jerseys.
A great website with info on things to do, access to discount tickets, and transit options is:
This is a very quiet building. In addition to this studio there are several other apartments besides my living space. We are all very quiet. And of course, no smoking or burning of scented candles.
从2017年11月01日 - 2017年12月31日起最少住宿30晚。
Like you I enjoy traveling, and especially like to find a comfortable and clean place to rest. I hope you find that place in the studio apartment in my home. As a Peace Corps Volunteer I lived in Yalta, Ukraine, shortly after the breakup of the Soviet Union. That afforded me the opportunity to travel throughout Eastern Europe and Russia. Since then I have worked in the Balkans, and have also traveled throughout Africa. Currently I am focused on the trafficking of women and other aspects of modern day slavery, and am looking forward to new horizons.
One of the great things that I enjoy in Boston is it’s open space. My home is located within several blocks of three of those great parks. Another great treasure in the Boston area--and one of the reasons that I moved to Boston--is it’s location on the ocean, and the opportunity to sail. You can go on whale watches, cruises around the harbor, or take the water taxi to visit Old Ironsides. Boston also has wonderful museums and a great public transportation system to take you there.
