We enjoyed our stay at the north end apartment. It is a bit small but plenty big for 2 people. The location was great with a short walk to so many great places to eat. We really enjoyed our stay!
This is my second time in this condo and I'd gladly move this rental to all my vacation destinations with me! It's wonderful to be in a neighborhood setting and truly experience "living' in the North End. Everything is within walking distance: restaurants, historical sights, shopping, harbor! Love having a living room, separate bedroom and a kitchen! But what really makes this condo AMAZING is the hosts. Terry and Des went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of. This will be where we stay when we come back to Boston.
Previous reviews mentioned the location and this is no joke. This apartment puts you in the heart of historic Boston and is an easy ten minute walk from both major landmarks and modern conveniences. Think Faneuil Hall, Freedom Trail, etc, and then add the Aquarium subway line, wharf attractions and more. Other benefits of this apartment include a semi-secluded/quiet residential area with enough creature comforts to satisfy even the pickiest guest.
My husband and I also appreciated the flexibility of the owner,Terry, and her responsiveness to our multitude of questions. Terry's suggestions for a local market, the Golden Goose, and restaurants such as Giocomo's were spot on and as trustworthy as a pricey travel guide. Can't wait until our next visit! Already planning for a new pair of walking shoes.
This was our home-away-from-home for a much anticipated friend trip to Boston. The apartment was even better than the pictures showed. And the location...perfect. It truly was a short walk to everything, including Quincy Market, a grocery store, fabulous restaurants and the waterfront. My friend had the bedroom and I slept on the hide-a-bed in the living. There was plenty of space for both of us. It was wonderful to have a kitchen. The location was quiet and safe. Owner was responsive to questions. Easy checkin and checkout. We truly couldn't have asked for more! I'm already planning a return trip with my husband!
The location of the apartment could not be more perfect! Just far enough off Hanover Street to be quiet, yet close enough to walk for coffee and pastries in the morning and gelato at night. The wharf and transit stations were all walkable distances. The apartment looks just like the photos except for the entry area where they are doing some construction work. My husband and I had such a fantastic vacation in Boston and this apartment played a large part in that.
