Luxury Back Bay Studio, River Views

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Beacon St, Boston, MA 02116, United States

The Space

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.

  • I stayed at Marina's apartment for a weekend and it was a lovely experience. The apartment was very nice, Back Bay is a great location and Marina was a pleasure to communicate with. I definitely recommend this apartment when visiting Boston.

  • The studio apartment is very nice and the view of the river was great. I loved being in the authentic Back Bay area of Boston However, if I had known that it was a two-flight walk up with narrow steep stairs I would never have booked it. Getting my suitcases up and down those stairs was a nightmare.

  • The location of this charming brownstone cannot be beat! In the heart of Back Bay, full view of the Charles River, it's a cozy space, and worth the two flights of narrow stairs to access it. Our host helped us resolve issues with the Internet, there are lots of channels on the TV, and the space was clean and bright. The only drawbacks were a saggy bed and a stove that didn't work (all other appliances worked fine). The host left good instructions and emergency contacts.

  • We had a great visit and great stay at Marina's Studio. She was very good at communication and the location was great. Super views. All and all it was very nice, we were there to visit our daughter as well as going to a wedding, so my ONLY complaint was there was no mirror in the place except for over the sink in the bathroom, so when dressing up for our event we had no mirror. but that was a very minor item. Great place, highly recommended, we would stay there again for sure. :)

  • We had an absolutely wonderful time here. Wouldn't change a thing. The location was perfect. Easy walk downtown, to Newbury street for shopping and eating, and to the subway. The view of the Charles river is fantastic and we loved the neighborhood. We recommend this place to anyone. Marina was very attentive and easy to communicate with. We would come back an hope to someday.

  • Marina's place does live up to its fotos and discription. It's centric, quiet and fully equipped (although I did not manage to handle the gas cooker, but this may be for my ignorance of US-security standards). It has a beautiful view on the river (for those who need to sleep with the windows open, bear in mind the four-track speed-way between the river and the river you see on the fotos). The access to the appartment may be a bit tricky as the flat is at the second floor and the stairway becomes narrow climbing up with a bigger suitcase. I had a great week in Boston staying at Marina's, although the arrival and departure were a bit of a shambles (her own words and she felt very sorry about it, on arrival the flat wasn't cleant up and on departure the cleaners came without previous hint while I was still in the flat). Nevertheless, I enjoyed the appartment and the stay in Boston very much, spite of being a bit pricey for what you get (both, Boston and appartment). I do recommend the appartment to those who are not too demanding with regards to the teaser "luxury" and are prepared a higher price which is not really justified.

Hello all, 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!
