About this listing
Gorgeous, EXTREMELY SUNNY, roomy studio overlooking the Charles river on the posh Beacon Street. Just a short, few minute walk to the T, Copley Square, the Prudential Center and seconds to Newbury Street. After a long day, enjoy the serenity of the river views and the plush accommodations of this lofty-feeling residence.
Although the kitchen is small, all the appliances are full size and the large breakfast bar provides plenty of space to cook and eat on. The bathroom is very cute, very well-maintained, and updated. One huge plus- you will never run out of hot water as it is central. Towels and linens are included.
The main space is laid out extremely well, with lots of room to roam in. The queen bed is brand new and extremely comfortable. It also has a brand new year-round weight down comforter. The Parsons desk is sufficiently large for big projects, and the daylight hits it for the majority of the morning and afternoon.
3 nights minimum stay
No pets at any time
Please be mindful of the furniture and personal belongings, it was all furnished with designer pieces and hard to replace things.
Marina's Back Bay apartment is lovely and in a perfect location for walking anywhere-with the added bonus of the Charles River view. I was there for an extended stay after surgery and the new bed was extremely comfortable. The windows all have room darkening shades that allow for wonderful sleep, and she even provides a sleep machine! The air conditioning and internet worked beautifully. The fully stocked kitchen & bath exceeded my expectations. Marina was thoughtful and considerate making certain I had access on time, and checked in on me via text periodically to be certain all of my needs were met.
I would recommend Marina as a host and plan to stay at her property again when I return to Boston.
We loved staying at Marina's apartment! It was in an awesome location, on a beautiful Boston downtown street. Marina couldn't have been easier to work with, the instructions were super easy and she checked in with us along the way. The apartment was the perfect size for our needs and had a great view of the Charles. We will definitely try and stay there again.
Would not recommend Marinas Boston place: overpriced for a dirty, mouldy apartment. Bed was awful with major dip in the middle. Host communication poor, ignored my request for a partial refund, but did refund cleaners fee as I had to do the cleaning & new linen day we arrived... Good location, book a hotel or Airbnb in the same area if you can.
Once we established the process, picking up the keys and checking in and out was very straightforward. Apartment has a great view of the Charles and is a short walk to Newbury St. A comfortable apartment in a perfect Back Bay location.
The apartment is in the ideal location and check in was a breeze. The place is classic, cozy and charming. The only negative is the bed: desperately needs a new mattress as it's essentially concave in the middle. Very uncomfortable. Otherwise great. I'd stay again.
The apartment was perfect. Clean, spacious, and in a great location with a great view. If you're coming to Boston, you should definitely stay here.
The location of Marina's apartment is perfect and very safe, close to newbury and boylston street shopping and restaurants and easy to get anywhere. It overlooks the Charles River and is close to the Mass Ave bridge, which I enjoyed running over for the view and to visit cambridge. The only problem with my stay was that I had no internet connection for 5 days of my stay. Marina was empathetic and offered me an extra night for free(which she didn't have to), which I was happy to have. It was then fixed and I had internet towards the end of my stay. The place is very clean and as described in pictures, though the bed is not comfortable (concave in middle). Overall, there were some hiccups, but Marina was accomodating and I would possibly stay here again.

About the Host, Marina
I am a personal shopper/stylist living and working in NYC.
I love to travel, and in my ventures, I find that clean, hospitable, well-kept and well-designed accommodations can sometimes make or break the trip. That's why when I was introduced to Airbnb, I was intrigued and chose to sign up and join the family and community.
I find that both as a host and as a guest, the most integral part is to be respectful and very mindful of people's space. The rest - to enjoy to the fullest your ventures, travels and life in general!
