Lovely, private garden studio apartment in historic Boston neighborhood.
The gorgeous studio has a private entrance through a lovely garden. It is a new renovation with hardwood floors and plenty of natural light. Cool in summer; toasty in winter. The sound of bubbling water in the garden's fish pond contributes to the tranquility of the space.

To get to 46 Monument Ave. from the airport by public transportation:
After you get your luggage, go outside the lower level and take the free bus to Subway station. Make sure the bus is going to the Subway Station. Take the Blue Line (toward Bowdoin) to the State Street stop. Go upstairs and take the Orange Line (toward Oak Grove) to the Bunker Hill/Community College stop. (website hidden)
Get off at Bunker Hil/Community College. Go upstairs to the street level. Turn left on the side walk. Walk across to two consecutive lights on the sidewalk and pass the 99 Restaurant and the shopping center on your left. At the light, make a right on Main Street. Walk three short blocks and Monument Ave. is the third left. Number 46 is in the middle of the hill on the left side of the street.
It's not a bad idea to buy a "Charlie Card" from the Airport stop if you plan to use public transportation during your visit. It will be less expensive than paying for each trip. You can also use it on the bus too. There are two buses numbers 92 & 93 from Charlestown to Downtown. From Downtown to Charlestown, get off at St. Mary's Church stop. Walk one block to Monument Ave. This suggestion is for your travel during your stay in Charlestown.

Yes, you can walk every where from my place.
The apartment was beautiful. Located close to bus/subway line and within walking distance of grocery store and restaurants in a nice neighborhood.
Atef and Charles were very friendly and accommodating during my stay.
I'd love to stay here again if I'm ever in Boston.
Beautiful, well presented studio in a great location. Only minor quibble is the lack of wifi.
Atef's caretaker, Charles, greeted us warmly, graciously helped us with our luggage and showed us the ins and outs of the apartment.
The location is amazing. Charlestown is clean, quaint and only a 10 minute walk from the North End.
The apartment is very much as advertised: spacious and clean with a comfortable bed and a decent shower. However, since it is a basement apartment, if you have rainy weather like we did during our stay, the natural light does struggle to fill the space.
NOTE: wifi is available but not included in the rental price. Also, there is no TV or monitor in the unit.
The washer and dryer are located in the hallway directly outside the apartment. During our stay it seemed as though they were running non-stop. During the spin cycle the din can become quite loud. However, they were never in use before 8am or after 9pm, as per the house rules.
Since the apartment entrance is at the rear of the house and down a narrow cobblestone path we would not recommended it to elderly renters or people with mobility issues.
Overall we had a pleasant stay and would recommend this rental.
Great place to stay. Exactly as described in the listing. Atef and his caretaker were very helpful with everything and booking/keys all went very smoothly. Recommended.
Great historic location, good for walking with near by points of interest. Great places to eat and drink including whole foods market. Comfy apartment with nice garden. Great host and care taker to assist you. I definitely recommend this place and plan to stay there again when I visit Boston.
The description is completely correct - this studio is gorgeous. As studios go, it's giant. As far as location, it's perfect. Charlestown is just over the river from Boston "proper", within easy walking distance. But in return for that slightly longer walk, you get an amazing level of peace and quiet that's unmatched anywhere else in the city. The studio is well equipped with cooking supplies, the shower is excellent, the bed is comfortable and it's roomy. The only thing I can even slightly complain about is that there's not a great deal of natural light in the apartment for most of the day (it's open to the garden at one end, but the other is below street level - there's two sidewalk-level windows), but there's still no feeling of darkness. I'd gladly stay here again. And again.
What a great location -- easy walk to downtown and a great little neighbourhood to explore. We enjoyed the tranquility, quiet and shabby chic appeal of Atef's flat.
