Adorable and affordable one bedroom/one bathroom private apartment steps from the Freedom Trail and Monument Square! Cozy, clean, well-equipped, and in an amazing location, this is the perfect spot to explore Boston for a short or long-term stay!
Quaint one bedroom private basement apartment one block from Monument Square!! Direct entrance from street. Small kitchen with oven & full-sized refrigerator, good-sized living/dining area, full bathroom, and open bedroom with window. Space for additional air mattress (queen or twin) - $50/additional person charge for AeroBed & linens. Amazing location blocks from public transit!
DISCLAIMER: Apartment is a basement suite accessed through a small door (shown in exterior photo at bottom right) and it has low ceilings in parts...if you are over 6' and have trouble ducking, this is probably not the apartment for you :)
15 minute walk to the North End! Very convenient public transit. 7 minute walk to the orange line, and a number of buses are 2 blocks away on Bunker Hill Street!
Lovely welcome from Rachel to their cosy place in a special part of Boston, which managed to still be warm despite the extraordinary -18C temps outside! Hosts were quick to respond to any issues or questions we had and eager to ensure we were comfortable. Thanks for making us feel welcome!
Rachel and Nate were really nice. Even before we arrived (as we were arriving on Christmas Eve) they offered to buy some groceries to cover us for a couple of days in case the shops were closed by the time we arrived.
We arrived at the address and as described the door to the property is very small. We didn't think this was correct at first but it was as described so this was fine. The apartment itself is very clean, cosy and basic, again as described. As we were there over Christmas and cooked on Christmas day, we did struggle a little with no plug or draining board in the sink area, but mostly this wasn't an issue as we just had breakfast for the rest of the time.
The area of Charlestown is very pleasant. The neighbourhood seems friendly and it is actually much closer to downtown Boston than we had originally thought. The freedom trail starts/ends practically on the doorstep at Bunker Hill Monument so for the first day we followed the trail which is a great way to get your bearings and to discover the area as well as learning more about the history of the area.
Overall this place is great as a base from which to explore the area and we can recommend it. Rachel and Nate made us feel extremely welcome and despite them being away for Christmas during most of our stay they still contacted us regularly to make sure everything was fine and to ask if we needed anything else.
The appartment is a comfortable, quiet and very convenient place for a stay in Boston ! You have a supermarket about 5 min by walking and it's pretty easy to park a car near the place. Subway is very close, about 5-10 min by walking and after that, you're in the city center in 10 min. But you can also do the Freedom Trail : it's a walking path which make you discover the city of Boston by going through historical monuments ! And it starts right next to the appartment !
Finally, Rachel and Nate are very welcoming and kind people ! They take care of you and your comfort. They were easily available before our arrival and at any time during our stay.
We highly recommand these hosts and their appartment !
Rachel and Nate were very accommodating hosts! They made my stay very enjoyable! We're very quick to address any concerns or issues I may have had. The apartment is a cute studio apartment in perfect and the best location!
Although we unfortunately didn't get to meet Rachel, she made sure the communication was ongoing and took care of all of our needs. Location was great. Beautiful neighborhood. Walk to the North End in 15 minutes or so, or grab the Orange Line into the city which is a short stroll down the bottom of the hill. Very comfortable bed. Nice towels. Be sure to stop by Warren Tavern for $1 oysters after 3 p.m. Also, Harpoon Brewery tour is great! Until next time...
Unbeatable price for an awesome place! My boyfriend is 6'2" so I was concerned about the height, but he had no problems anywhere, even the shower. With Boston hotel and even Airbnb prices so expensive, this was a welcome alternative and I feel lucky to have landed it on short notice. The place is super clean, well-appointed with linens, cookware & everything else, plus Rachel & Nate are so easy-going. Also, Charlestown was absolutely adorable...and Rachel & Nate's place is even closer to the Bunker Hill Monument than it looks on the map, so we were steps away from the Freedom Trail! The apartment comes with a welcome sheet with tons of information, including all the good restaurants and shops. Use their suggestions...and make sure they introduce you to their adorable puppy, Thax! Strongly recommend this apartment for anyone looking to save some money but still have a fantastic place to stay. Thanks for a perfect experience, Rachel & Nate!
Perfect apt. to visit Boston. Very clean and Rachel is a great host, helping her guests with everything they need. Also very close near the monument and only a 25 min walk to the city centre. Would def recommend this accomodation to everyone who is looking for a nice place to stay when visiting Boston.
Originally from Boston (Rachel) & Portland, ME (Nate), we live upstairs from the unit, and have quickly fallen in love with Charlestown and all it has to offer! We are here for any questions you might have :)
