Prestigious & Historic Beacon Hill

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Revere Street, Boston, MA 02114, United States

The Space

Beacon Hill’s narrow cobble stoned streets and brick sidewalks are the very essence of old Boston. This historic neighborhood is located directly behind the gold-domed State House adjacent to downtown. Beacon Hill is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in the metropolitan area. Its residential character, tight-knit community, and high level of police protection contribute to its general safety.

Charles and Cambridge Streets are the major commercial strips in Beacon Hill. Charles Street offers some of the most exclusive shopping experiences in the metropolitan area. Cambridge Street is a busy thoroughfare that primarily features restaurants and supermarkets.

Beacon Hill is a designated historic district, and its streets offer great character and charm. Most of the housing stock is in small three- and four-story apartment buildings with ten or fewer units. Beacon Hill contains some of the oldest housing stock in the city, and individual units tend to be smaller than those in other communities.

Beacon Hill is one of the closest neighborhoods to MIT and is easily accessible to public transportation. The MBTA Charles Street/MGH Red Line station is located in the northwest corner of Beacon Hill and is just one stop away from Kendall/MIT. The Park Street Red Line station, a short walk across the Boston Common, is two stops from MIT. Depending on where you live, the Institute is a 15- to 30-minute walk or a short bike ride via the Longfellow or Massachusetts Avenue bridges.

On-street parking in Beacon Hill is extremely limited. Because this community is so accessible by foot, bicycle, and public transportation, however, there is little need for a car. Also, taxi service is fast and dependable.

If you plan on staying for a while, Stop & Shop's PeaPod will deliver groceries to "The Hill" for a nominal fee. If you are vegan or just careful what you eat, Whole Foods is just a couple of blocks away.

This apartment has one bedroom and a pull-out couch. It comes equipped with linens, towels, and has a complete kitchen, and there is a coin operated washer/dryer in the basement.

This apartment is perfect for anyone wanting to see the sights of Boston or anyone with business at any of the local hospitals or universities.

  • I lived in this apartment for 3 months while in Boston for work. I absolutely loved it! Beacon Hill is such a charming neighborhood. The property is close to so much- coffee shops, restaurants, bars, boutiques, a Whole Foods, and the Charles/MGH T stop. Very walkable neighborhood. Donna was such a great host! I extended my contract at work and she was able to move me into another one of her other properties. Definitely recommend!!

  • The apartment is in a very convenient location - a short walk from cafes, grocery shops, restaurants and bars galore. The area is hilly (Beacon Hill), so expect a bit of a workout while walking around.

    Donna had everything ready, exactly as promised in her communications leading up to the day of my check-in. The apartment was clean and met all my needs. One must note that it is a four floor walk-up, so checking in and out might be a little troublesome if one has a lot of stuff. Also, being in a historic neighborhood, the apartment itself is dated, and this is evident from within. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with everything needed to whip up a meal; there was a welcome gift basket too. The bathroom was stocked up with basic toiletries. The bedroom has a closet with enough hangers for one's clothes, a dresser and a bed which seemed comfortable enough to me. The dining table in the living room is against the windows overlooking Revere street and is perfect for meals, unless one prefers eating on the couch.

    Overall, I had a very comfortable stay. Donna was super responsive to my every query, and did a great job ensuring that I was all set.

  • This was my first AirBnB experience and everything worked out great. The apartment was perfect for me. I was travelling for work and it had everything I needed to make my stay easy and enjoyable - from dishwasher liquid, cooking oil and even quarters for the washing machine and dryer in the basement. Plenty of space for one person and would easily suit a couple. Donna was fantastic! She answered all my queries within about an hour of sending the message. Her instructions were clear and everything was as described. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

  • Comfortable and cozy place. Donna was also responsive to queries and was quick to resolve a small issue.

    One improvement is to make sure the wireless extend to the bedroom too.

    If you want a clean, quaint and authentic place to stay in Beacon Hill. Look no further.

  • The apartment is wonderfully located both for business and vacation. From the bay window you may enjoy the view on Beacon Hill roofs, the morning sun and the colors of the city sunset
    After the second time you walk up the hill doesn't seem steep anymore and being near to the top keeps you away from of the noise of Charles St and Cambridge St.
    The living room is cosy, the kitchen well designed and fully working (dishwasher included!).
    The space is small, but it has everything you'll need for a city stay, plus a lot of closets.
    You won't be short of snacks, toiletries, towels and linens.
    Donna and Bill are very responsive and quickly take care of all the issues.
