This apartment is in the heart of it all! Walk to all the endless attractions, public transportation, big Boston hospitals, restaurants, Boston Common, State House, and the theater and financial districts!
Beacon Hill - Quirky, but fun! Located in the very heart of it all - Fabulous restaurants, shops and attractions! Full of history everywhere you look! Just minutes on foot to the State House, Boston Common, museums, financial district, theater district, Chinatown, Metro, Charles River, free concerts on the waterfront, Frog Pond skating, and all major hospitals. It is a furnished basement apartment, not a room and not a share! The apartment which includes cable TV and wireless internet, is very unusual. It has a foyer where you can sit and eat or just spend time watching all the interesting people walk buy! It has a fully equipped kitchen and small living room with basic cable & wireless internet. There are two sleeping areas with double beds. One is off the living room and has a privacy curtain. The second area is in the back and has a door. The bed is raised on a platform but a step stool is there to assist you. The retro, shiny ship wallpaper is a conversation piece! The bathroom facilities are separate from a large cement shower off the back bedroom. The building has old-time heavy wrought iron marble stairs. A washer and dryer are in the basement right out the back door. We provide laundry detergent and a few quarters to wash a load or two! All of this and less of a $25 taxi ride from the airport!
If you plan on staying for a while, Stop & Shop's PeaPod will deliver groceries to "The Hill" for a nominal fee. If you are vegan or just careful what you eat, Whole Foods is just a couple of blocks away.
Beacon Hill’s narrow cobblestoned streets and brick sidewalks are the very essence of old Boston. This historic neighborhood is located directly behind the gold-domed State House adjacent to downtown. Beacon Hill is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in the metropolitan area. Its residential character, tight-knit community, and high level of police protection contribute to its general safety.
Charles and Cambridge Streets are the major commercial strips in Beacon Hill. Charles Street offers some of the most exclusive shopping experiences in the metropolitan area. Cambridge Street is a busy thoroughfare that primarily features restaurants and supermarkets.
Beacon Hill is one of the closest neighborhoods to MIT and is easily accessible to public transportation. The MBTA Charles Street/MGH Red Line station is located in the northwest corner of Beacon Hill and is just one stop away from Kendall/MIT. The Park Street Red Line station, a short walk across the Boston Common, is two stops from MIT.
On-street parking in Beacon Hill is extremely limited. Because this community is so accessible by foot, bicycle, and public transportation, however, there is little need for a car
Guests agree to pay for any Movies/Event rented on Cable TV. No Smoking. No Pets. One week minimum stay.
This apartment's best feature is its location in Beacon Hill, convenient to both Boston commons and to a red line "T" station. Donna was very accommodating by letting us leave our luggage there past check out time so we could explore Boston some more before our evening flight. The kitchen was well equipped and the apartment was clean, but it is a small basement apartment and is definitely only large enough for a maximum of two compatible people. The shower is in the bedroom, not the bath, which takes some getting used to. The apartment could use some updating and a few small improvements would make it more enjoyable.
The host was responsive and friendly though the phone in the flat never worked. Location was perfect. Beds a bit small and it's in the basement. Close to good eateries and walking distance to most places, including the metro if you prefer. Good internet and facilities. Beds a bit small though both double. Had a lovely view from the roof which was kindly opened of the July 4th fireworks! Hits at the top of a Hill as the name suggests, so if you cant do steep slopes then its not the place for you.
Beacon Hill is a wonderful neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed being within walking distance of restaurants, the T, and anything else we wanted to do. We loved the history that surrounded us. It is a quirky little place but we enjoyed our stay.
The location was amazing. Very close to good restaurants and main streets. Friendly and safe neighborhood. Donna provided great instructions and there were no complications.
Donna made us feel very welcome. We got an email from her right after we rented the apartment. When I wrote back with a few questions she was very prompt. Donna gave us information on the price of cabs, left us money for the washer and dryer that are in the basement next door for our use. There were plenty of linens, soap, and a nice assortment of items incase we had forgotten anything. The pictures are accurate. It was exactly as described.
I stayed here with my sisters over the marathon week. The location was perfect. We were able to walk to everything. It was also very near subway access.
The apartment was clean and comfortable for the four of us.The kitchen was fully equipped, and there were plenty of towels and bedding. Great shower, lots of hot water and supplied toiletries.
We did not see Donna but she responded promptly by phone to help us with the one problem we encountered with accessing the wifi.
I would be happy to stay there again.
Overall, we enjoyed our week in 64B Revere. It's a great location for visiting Boston. The kitchen is very well equipped, there was plenty of hot water (the shower was fine) and although it was still very cold outside, the apartment was always warm. However, as a retired couple staying the last week of March, we did find some challenges. Our only real issue was with the lighting. Some lights were not working when we arrived, there were additional light failures during our stay, and even when all lights were working, some areas could have been better lit. In general we feel that the property owner should have the entire electrical system checked. However, Donna, the agent/host, was always accessible to answer questions, dealt very promptly with the recurring light bulb issues and agreed that some instructions for using appliances would be helpful, especially for people from outside the US.
