About this listing
Gorgeous, EXTREMELY SUNNY, roomy studio overlooking the Charles river. Located on the posh and historic 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 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 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 well, with plenty of open space. The queen bed was recently purchased and is extremely comfortable. It also has a new year-round weight down comforter. The Parsons desk is sufficiently large for big projects, and daylight hits it for the majority of the morning and afternoon.
Interaction with Guests
I am not usually in Boston, but I have local maintenance and cleaning services on call that are happy to help if needed.
Just a few minute walk from the T and convenient to the Back Bay Express for cheap airport transport.
Other Things to Note
I can sometimes accommodate early/late check-in and check-out, but it varies. Don't hesitate to check with me in advance!
It is an older building, which is part of its charm, but please note that the building hallways, carpeting, etc. are not as updated as inside the apartment itself. The landlord has been painting and replacing some of the older stairwell railings, but the stairs are still fully functional. However, this work could pose an issue for people with mobility difficulties who need a sturdy railing.
The street the apartment is on is very quiet, but there is a road behind the building with some noise from traffic. It doesn't bother me, as I like some quiet background noise (it is typically just the sound of cars passing by, not honking or sirens anything like that), but I wanted to mention it in case a guest prefers complete silence. The neighbors are quiet.
2 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.

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!
