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.
1 week 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.
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 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.
Its impossible to describe our horrible experience. To be short, Marina accepted our booking, we were charged for that and she didn't show up to provide access to her apartment in Boston. All my messages, emails, calls were without answer when we arrived. I think its not necessary to say about discomfort of being in a different city without a point of contact! The only one thing we could do (staying with our luggage on the street) its just to find the hotel. At that time it was a big conference in Boston and we had to pay much more then we were planning just to have a place to sleep.
Marina was awesome, clear instructions on how to get in, very timely and responsive to booking. The best part of this unit is location right in Back Bay and walking distance to everything. Beautiful view as well. The only cons for me were that mattress clearly needs replacing and "air conditioning" appears to be a window unit that needs to be installed for each use? Furnishings are tasteful, and unit is much more spacious than a hotel. Everything (TV, wifi, water, kitchen, etc) worked great. Would recommend and will come back if I am in town 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!
