Studio apartment (you have the whole apartment to yourself) in the Leather District. It is a one minute walk from the apartment to the heart of downtown Boston and the financial district. With entrances/exits to 93 and the Mass Pike just 2 blocks away, it is extremely convenient location if you are coming by car or by bus/plane..
The Red and Silver subway (T) lines are just outside your door as well as Amtrak and the new bus terminal in South Station (1 minute by foot). If you are arriving from Logan, it is an easy 5 minute walk from the Blue line (get off at State Street). In addition, the Orange and Green subway lines are just 3 minutes away. A short walk to Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, Newbury Street (Boston's best shopping area) Metered and visitor parking spaces are also available but many guests choose to use a garage for the sake of convenience.
In a former coat factory that has now been turned into lofts, the apartment is finished with marble counter-tops and stainless steel appliances. Hotel quality sheets and towels and any other amenities as needed.
The design aesthetic is tastefully modern with vintage touches The living area has a sectional couch and 36 inch flat-screen television with cable and high speed wireless. I provide restaurant and activity recommendations tailored to your trip.
I was in Boston for a 3 day convention. Owen met me at the condo, and was very accessible. He took efforts to explain the apartment and the neighbourhood to me. The condo was great. It was cozy, secure and clean, with reliable fast wifi. And it's very central with really easy access to South Station to get to and from the airport. I'd stay again next time I'm in town.
Owen was great! He met us exactly when he said he would, making sure not to leave us out in the bitter cold for too long :). He proceeded to get a feel for what we were looking to do in the area and not only gave us a brief rundown of his area, but also had a packet with suggestions for food/entertainment in the neighborhood. We tried a couple - they were superb.
The spot itself was spacious. We liked the amenities - quiet building, no issues with anyone in building. The apartment was comfortable and very accommodating.
As far as location, we strolled up to locations that didn't take too long. South end area was a little bit of a hike but not too bad. The area has a slight Chinatown vibe mixed with the beginning of the downtown area. Even if I wanted to see new parts of Boston next time I came, I'd probably be contacting Owen for the same arrangements.
Lovely apartment. Owen was very hospitable and I had everything I needed for a nice relaxing stay. To those with cars, don't try parking on the street. There's only two-hour parking for visitors and if you're even remotely in a bus loading zone, there's a $100 ticket coming your way.
After braving the winter weather in Chicago, I finally made it out to Boston. My companion and I decided to treat ourselves to a stay in Boston, and we found Owen's awesome apartment. The key drop went flawlessly, and we made our way over to the apartment. It is beautifully decorated, and was a great place to stay and ride out the cold of the storm. Towels and other amenities awaited us, and we were grateful to have a comfortable and big bed to sleep in for the night. The location is excellent, only a short walk to the T, and easy to get in and out of. If we had more time, we would have stayed multiple nights!
Great experience at Owen's place. It is very easy to get to the studio from the airport via the Silver Line, and many other T stops are a close walk to the studio. The building is very quiet and well maintained. I had an issue connection to the wireless network, which Owen resolved within minutes. I would recommend the studio to anyone visiting Boston.
Owen was a great host, very easy to communicate with and helped me when I needed extra help needing to use a printer.
The apartment is very clean, spacious and close to the centre of Boston.
Will definitely recommend staying at his apartment!
The apartment is great, confortable and well located. Owen and his girlfriend are very kind and helped us with everything we needed.
It was a very good stay , moreover the city is really lovely.
It was a nice experience.
I spent a week at Owens studio apartment while I was in town for a business conference. It turned out that the location was perfect, close to the main T line and train station so I could get around. The actual studio was very comfortable and clean. Owens girlfriend met us at the train station to take us to the apartment. The apartment looks like it is in a very un-neigborhood area. The key is to walk across the main busy street and there is a great little neighborhood. It was a bonus to have apple TV with netflicks on those nights i just needed to veg. thanks OWEN.
Really comfortable and clean place, great location!!
Super Boston Location
We visited Boston for the first time and stayed in this perfectly located condo. The young host couple were charming, helpful and very responsive to meeting our requirements as guests. We were able to easily navigate our way to all of the important sites to see in downtown Boston. This is a comfortable place to “call home” while visiting Boston.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
