We enjoy welcoming our guests to our modern condo in a brick building located in the middle of the historic Charlestown neighborhood in Boston, situated between Cambridge and the North End.
Our home is in a three stories building bordering the gas light district, a few blocks from the Bunker Hill monument, Freedom Trail, and the USS Constitution.
High speed wireless internet, Wi-Fi, internet HDTV with Blu-Ray player and basic cable TV are all included.
It is a quiet building and both rooms are furnished with beds (2 fulls and 1 queen) and desks. Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors and high ceilings. Heat and air cooling in each bedroom and living areas.
We both speak French, Spanish and English but usually not all at once. One room fits 2, the other 4 and the sofa 2 but let us know if you have children/babies or want to discuss options. It is ideal for 2 couples but it can fit more.
There is no elevator and the condo is located on the second floor (2 flights of stairs). A shared laundry room is located in the building's basement.
Note: nothing is shared - we are renting out the entire apartment and you have access to all amenities in the condo and in the common areas of the building.
Interaction with Guests
We always meet guests in person and can stop by if needed/requested. We are always an email / call / text away. We live a few blocks away.
In the Neighborhood: numerous parks, pool, bike paths,Whole Food, Tangerino’s restaurant, Fig’s pizzeria, Oysteria (Legal Sea Food), Grasshopper cafe, Zume and Sorelle, antique shops and much more.
We are near the Bunker Hill Burying Ground, which is Charlestown's second municipal burial place (the first was established on Phipps Street in 1630).
In the summer a pool opens on Bunker Hill St. There is also a gym down the street at the YMCA in the Navy Yard (it has an indoor pool and a basket ball court). The walking path alongside the water in the Navy Yard is amazing in the summer.
We are near public transportation - bus 93 stops across the street and bus 92 comes on Main street (a few blocks away). We are walking distance from 2 orange T Stops (Community College and Sullivan Square), all go to downtown Boston (in 5 to 10 minutes). Real-time schedules and door-to-door itineraries are available for free on the web or via mobile apps.
We are 10 minutes to / from Logan airport or South Station (buses / trains to NYC and DC) using the Big Dig (underground highway). A cab ride to/from South Station averages $15 and $25 from/to the airport. Ask for a van to the attendants if needed and they will call/request one for you.

Neat, clean place at the corner of Bunker Hill Street and Green Street, an address that made it very easy for a newcomer to find the way either to the Community College subway stop, or the North End and its history and restaurant scene, or Charlestown and its monument and Navy Yard area itself. Good location for someone willing to walk a pleasant ten minutes, while looking at a gentrifying neighborhood.
Two bedrooms, one bath, and a kitchen/living room area. It is not overstuffed with soft, fragile things, so I felt comfortable that I was not going to break or soil things (which is to say that it is lightly furnished with big empty closets and shelves and open areas) which suited me just perfectly. But if your taste runs toward "homey", with lots of photos on the walls, crowded shelves with someone else's memorabilia, etc. you will find this apartment somewhat spare. I liked it.
The move in/move out arrangements were handed very easily and flexibly.
We had a wonderful week at Max's condo. It's very clean, organized and artistic. The place is close to everything and $10 uber can get you to most attractions in Boston. Max is very friendly and he made a lot of efforts to ensure his guests stay comfortable. I will definitely recommend my friends to stay in Max's place.
Fantastic experience. Bus transporation right outside the door of the condo and 10-12 min walk to the Orange Line - Community College T stop. Max was very friendly and accessible -- left us some tasty goodies on arrival. Apartment was very clean. Comfortable memory foam mattress on queen bed. Will plan to return to this apartment next time we are in Boston.
Max's apartment was great. It was clean, spacious and well equipped. Max left us a bottle of wine, tea and coffee and some snacks which was really appreciated. Both bedrooms are a good size with one of them having 2 double beds. The washer and drier in the basement was very useful. Max met us on arrival, even though it was late, and gave us some useful information. The apartment was fairly handy for downtown using the Community College T stop (orange line) or the bus. We needed to be in Harvard square which was a fairly inexpensive taxi ride away. I would recommend Max's apartment.
Max was a gracious and hospitable host! We loved the space and the area! We were just an über ride away from everything! We can only hope that when we are back in Boston this beautiful place will be available! We could not have asked for more!!! Well pleased!!! Thank you Max!
We had a comfortable stay for 8 days. The apartment is so clean and everything was in accordance to prior description and met our needs. Max is so kind and helpful. We had a problem with the TV cable & wifi service on check in, and he didn't leave us until it was solved. The furniture is comfortable, utensils & accessories of the kitchen and bathroom more than enough. We only had some hassle with parking the car but it was manageable.
If I return back to Boston, I'll ask to stay at the same apartment.
