About This Listing

Our sun-filled apartment is on the third floor of a walk-up brownstone in Boston’s most desirable neighborhoods. We live in a beautifully furnished two bedroom, two full-bath apartment that comfortably sleeps four adults and comes with everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
The first floor of our home boasts a full kitchen, large living room, one queen bedroom, and one bathroom with a shower/tub. The stairs leading to the second floor open to a master suite that has a king bed and a bathroom with a shower/tub. Both bedrooms are equipped with HD TVs and the master bedroom also has Apple TV. Beds will have fresh sheets and towels will be set-out in each bathroom upon your arrival. Please bring your own toiletries.

Our living room is a great place to kick back and relax. Enjoy some home-cooked food or takeout at our dinning table (seats 4) or cozy up by the fire with a good book. We also have a 55” Flat-screen LED TV, Apple TV, Blu-ray DVD player, and an iPod SoundDock for your entertainment.
Secure high-speed wireless internet is included. My boyfriend is a computer programmer so I can promise you it is fast Wi-Fi.
It can’t be beat in Boston! Our home is located just steps from Mass General Hospital, the Charles River, the Boston Public Garden, Boston Common, and one of Boston’s most popular streets, Charles Street. We are also just a short walk or T-ride from the Freedom Trail, Copley Square, Newbury Street, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, the North End, MIT, Cambridge, and Harvard Square.
W Cedar Street is a quite, friendly street lined with cobblestone sidewalks and brownstones providing a quintessential “old” Boston feel. Our street runs parallel to Charles St, which has numerous wonderful restaurants, clothing stores, salons, bars, and cafes.
Public Transit is very close and convenient – Red line (Charles/MGH is 4min walk, Park St 15min), Green line (Government Center 15min, Arlington 15min, Park St 15min). We are only a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport (around $25) or a 35 minute ride by public transportation ($2.50/person).
Whether you are looking to walk the Freedom Trail, jump on a Duck Boat Tour, shop on Newbury St, or take a leisurely walk down Charles St and grab a bit to eat, you will find it all within walking distance. You could not be more conveniently located to take in all of the sites the city has to offer.

Our Thanksgiving weekend was perfect. Great location to walk the city. Kaitlyn's apartment was just right for my husband and I and our son and his girlfriend. Her description was accurate. We had a detailed list of sights and restaurants which was very helpful. Kaitlyn had left space in her refrigerator for our food.
el anfrition siempre estuvo pendiente de nosotros y contesto rápido a todas las dudas.
la casa estaba un poco fria cuando llegamos pero pudimos calentarla rápido
no había ni jabón ni champú lo cual nos creo un pequeño inconveniente porque llegábamos muy tarde, que hubiera tenido muy facil solucion
Easy to find, host coordination and welcome was great. Apt is in am amazing location! You get such a better feel for the city in an airbnb than a hotel! Additionally decorating was cute and apt was clean.
Spending the 2014 Memorial Day weekend at Kaitlyn's Beacon Hill penhouse was perfect!
Frist of all, the penthouse is in a beautiful neighbourhood and is close to so many of Boston's sites. We were fortunate enough to have nice weather, as the house is within walking distance of Quincy Market (15min), Newbury St (10min), and is mere steps from Boston Common. There are serveral coffee shops within a block or two to start your walk as well, not to mention the great resaturants close by.
The penthouse itself was a perfect size for four adults. We each had our own room and full bathroom, which was nice after a full day of sightseeing and walking. There are three TVs if one was inclinded to have a lazy day or evening. Kaitlyn left space in the fridge for provisions, such as cold Harpoon or bottles of water.
Lastly, Kaitlyn was a perfect host. The house was exactly as advertised and very clean upon arrival. Also, she helped with sightseeing and eating recommendations, as well as with parking (car not necessary in Boston). I never met Kaitlyn, but she was very helpful from the day we booked until the day we left.
I will definitely be back to visit Boston, but only when the penthouse is available to rent!
Location. Location. Location. Beautiful apartment, exactly as described. Clean, tidy and well equipped. Will definitely stay again. Communication was awesome from start to finish :)
The condo was very nice and a great location in Beacon Hill. We will definitely try to rent this condo again when we visit Boston. (There are quite a few stairs up to the condo which were no problem for us, but potential renters should be aware of this.)
We had a great stay at the apartment. The location is fantastic, right in the heart of historic Beacon Hill. Very walkable to coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, bars, the park, and public transportation. Kaitlyn was very helpful and accommodating -- I would certainly recommend a stay at her place!

About the Host, Kaitlyn
My boyfriend and I are young professionals living in Beacon Hill in Boston. Matt is a software engineer at a local Boston company, while I am a digital marketing professional at a consumer web company. I like watching Patriots games, dancing, and relaxing with a good book. Matt enjoys cooking, spending time with friends, and running on the Charles River. We both love to spend our free time traveling and exploring new places. We also love hosting guests and it would be our pleasure to open our apartment to you!
