Situated on the banks of Boston Harbor and the Mystic River on the north side of the city, Charlestown has translated its historical roots into a thriving 21st Century neighborhood. As the home to such significant landmarks as the U.S.S. Constitution, the Bunker Hill Monument and the Navy Yard, Charlestown's allure has enticed a new generation of immigrants and young professionals to join its traditionally Irish-American population. Residents, new and old, frequent the local restaurants and establishments along Main Street and in City Square.
This is our primary residence and we open it up to guests when we are going to be out of town. We ask that guests respect our home as they would their own. We do have a dog that lives with us, Mavis, who will also be away, but if someone has severe allergies, you may want to bring meds.
This is a great condo in an amazing area with extremely nice neighbors, that being said, please be courteous to them during your stay.
Seth's home was even more amazing in real life. The photos are true representation, however being there in person was even better than expected. The home is meticulous and comfortable. The deck is to die for. Seth was very easy to communicate and coordinate checkin/checkout. I would recommend his place with no hesitation.
Seth's place is fabulous! It is large and well appointed, yet it feels intimate and friendly. The location on Monument Square, is an easy walk to the North End or drive into Cambridge or Somerville. This was our second stay and Seth has been easy to reach and communicate with. At this point he feels like a friend to us. He has dropped the keys off at my parents condo a block away, allowing us to arrive at a convenient time for us. He has a roof top deck providing great views of the area and a relaxing place to sit and have a beer with friends and family. We will try and stay with Seth whenever we are in Boston.
My family and I had a wonderful weekend at Seth's place. The apartment was beautiful, warm, and welcoming. We felt right at home. Seth allows use of his wireless - a very nice bonus. The views are spectacular and the location is great for visiting Boston. We look forward to another visit soon!
This was a beautiful apartment. Me and my father stayed in Seth's for two nights and couldn't have asked for a better place in Boston. The apartment was quiet, clean, nicely decorated and in a beautiful brown stone in a historical area of Charlestown. Not too far from where we needed to go in Boston. I would come back and stay here if I have a chance!
We had the most wonderful stay in Seth's apartment, a true home! We felt that we were in our own little paradise situated in the most incredible neighborhood. The rooftop views were spectacular and were visible from every window inside as well.
It was a special weekend for me and he left me a wonderful note with a note and a bottle of champagne, to boot!
The beds were comfortable and access was great. I can't wait to come back!
Thank you, Seth and Bess!
We stayed here while visiting Boston for a quick weekend tour. We had a wonderful time and were awed by the spaciousness, luxury and cleanliness of Seth’s apartment. This is perfectly located for easy walking distance to all the major sights in north Boston or just a quick stroll to the ferry or subway to get further afield. Apartment is close to a number of local restaurants or enjoy the gorgeous kitchen and rooftop to relax and appreciate the city from above. Seth was wonderful to deal with and even the neighbors were friendly! Certainly hope to stay again on our next trip to Boston . Many thanks , Victor
About the Host, Seth
I have lived in Charlestown for over 10 years and love everything that it has to offer. We travel a lot on the weekends, so we wanted to offer up our condo to guest while we are gone. Let me know if you have any questions about the place, or Boston in general.
