About this listing
Located right at the end of the famous Freedom Trail, this fabulous one bedroom garden apartment with pull-out queen sofabed is just steps from the Bunker Hill Monument. Excellent and convenient location to explore Boston. Very private, quiet, and clean. With private entry, small yard - great for the summer months! - and laundry located in the unit. NEW! Just added a cable TV (July 2013)
Charlestown is a well-established, historic, and beautiful gas-light district with Victorian red-brick rowhouses and parks. Walking distance to a number of local restaurants, but also to the North End and the Navy Yard - a decommissioned navy yard now home to an active district filled with the USS Constitution ( i.e. Old Ironsides), several museums, residences, parks, restaurants, and million dollar views of downtown Boston! A ferry ($3) runs directly from the Navy Yard to the Aquarium and other sights downtown including Quincy Market, the Greenway Parks, TD Banknorth Garden, and museums nearby in Fort Point (ICA and Children's museum).
A range of public transit options are available: ferry, bus, subway, and bike share. Or you can simply walk most places! Better yet, parking in Charlestown on the weekend does not require a permit. During the week, several parking garages are located a 5-10 minute walk away (charging anywhere from $12-$21 depending on the duration).
This place is ideal for business travelers looking for a convenient place to stay while working downtown or in Kendall Square, couples, or families with younger children who are looking for laundry and a small outdoor space.
Absolutely no smoking or pets. Please note that the sleeping accommodations include one real bed and one pullout sofabed.
Kitchen basics (salt, sugar, olive oil, etc.) will be provided, but guests are expected to do their own grocery shopping. Recycling and disposal of waste at the end of the stay is also asked.
At the end of the visit, we kindly ask that you strip the bed and place the sheets in the hamper next to the washer and dryer. Thank you!
We had an enjoyable time at Corey's place. It was comfortable and perfect for what we wanted. We loved being able to walk or take the ferry to do our sight seeing The restaurants nearby we great as well.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and we loved it. Corey's apartment was really nice. It is located in a charming neighborhood not far from the city center. It is clean and well-equipped.
We also appreciated her recommendations about things to see, restaurants, etc. She really makes you feel welcome.
Thanks again Corey!
This was our first Airbnb experience and it won't be our last! Corey's garden apartment is in a quiet and safe neighborhood with a private entrance. We appreciated being able to wash a couple loads of laundry during our down time and took advantage of the kitchen and cooked a lobster dinner one night. Corey responded immediately to all of our questions via email. Yes, the apartment does have wifi. The tub has a high side but there was plenty of hot water. The sofa was super comfortable.
Corey was very helpful in providing answers to all of our questions, and the apartment was in great shape when we arrived. The apartment was clean and well-equipped, as well as centrally located in Charlestown. We were lucky enough to be staying when the Bunker Hill Day parade took place, and the parade went right by the apartment so we had a great vantage point. We highly recommend staying at this apartment.
