What Past Guests Are Saying
Great position close to transport very quiet neighbourhood
We enjoyed our stay in Charlestown, Boston although the apartment left a lot to be desired. The apartment was quite tired looking and really needs some TLC. Cleanliness was another issue utensils had not been cleaned from previous guests. A welcome from the hosts would have been nice just to familiarize us with the neighbourhood. Despite these shortcomings we had a great time.
Lovely, comfortable apartment in a perfect location.
My girlfriend and I hired this apartment for a holiday in Boston, and it was superb for our needs. The location was perfect, sitting right on the end (or beginning, depending on how you look at it) of the Freedom trail by Bunker Monument. This made sightseeing and walking into town very easy, and we were a 10 minute walk from the subway for when our feet were tired!
The apartment itself comes fully furnished, including a sofa and Queen-sized bed. We did by chance meet one of the owners, who was very friendly and gave good advice on what to see and do in Boston. A nice touch was the free snacks, cookies etc left with compliments in the apartment. Wi-Fi was available at no extra charge, which enabled us to plan the rest of our trip and stay in touch with friends.
The kitchen was quite small but came with cutlery, saucepans etc, there is a "Whole Foods" supermarket round the corner that sells good (if a little pricey) food, the Warren tarren a block away is good for an evening drink or theres an off-licence literally 1 minute away if you want to grab a bottle of wine and sit in the outdoor courtyard.
Overall a lovely stay, would use it again!
Good location & value
This place is conveniently located, with easy access to downtown through the Busses, Metro Train and Ferry (Buying a 7-day pass in advance may be a good option - need to go to a train station beforehand). Interesting restaurants within walking distance, and nice New England architecture all around. At least one children playground close by, or two larger ones through the new walkway towards the Science Museum, which can be reached in about 20 minutes by foot. Uss constitution and its museum are also interesting options at low cost within a few minutes. Parking at Nautica on Constitution Street is not cheap (take the walkway under route us 1 through Chestnut Street), but more affordable than downtown. There are a few other lots in this area than can be cheaper if you don't mind walking a bit more.
The apartment itself is a bit old and a few things could be improved - blinds that don't wind back up, telephone that does not work, old windows that don't close/lock very well (OK for summer, winter?). The terrace behind is nice. Toaster, microwave & fridge worked fine, WiFi access was easy. Extra chairs are available in the closet.
Rain made a rather loud noise when falling onto the window air conditioning unit, which we did not use at all since the apartment is in the basement. The main bed mattress was extra firm.
There was a strong smell in the living room - coming from the old wood-fired water heater? This did not go away over days, but could not be smelled from the bedroom (hide-a-bed sofa is however in the living room).
Owners were nice and helpful.
Entrance is through a small door. The kitchen window should have a blind to reduce light for guests sleeping in the living room.
In summary, this was a fair place for the price, with good access to interesting areas & downtown, but it could be improved with some better maintenance.
Perfectly located and very comfortable.
My father and I stayed here from June 1st to June 4th, 2013 during a trip to Boston to take a cruise. You access keys to the apartment via a lock box. The owners live on site but you don't need their assistance to gain entry. You can't find a better spot to stay in the Boston area. Starting with location, you can walk within 2 minutes to the Bunker Hill Monument and the Warren Tavern. Walk 10 minutes and you arrive at the Charlestown Navy Yards, home of the USS Constitution. From the Constitution Pier you can take a $3 water taxi to Downtown Boston, exiting right at Legal Seafoods. Faneuil Hall is only 2 blocks away. The apartment itself includes a spacious master bedroom, galley kitchen and living area. The living area includes a sofabed. As I was traveling with my 80 year old father, he got the main bedroom and I crashed on the sofa. It wasn't the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in but it wasn't a hardship either. Parking in this area is restricted to residents only during the week. We were lucky enough to find free street parking for the weekend and parked down near the Constitution on Monday evening. The cost to park was $23 per 24 hour period at the Waterfront Mariott. There is a phone for local calls. Buy a $5 phone card and you can make long distance calls. Free wireless internet is provided. I have rated this 5 Stars, not because it is 5 Star Hotel accomodation but because it delivered exactly what I was looking for. Reasonably priced, clean, safe accomodation in a terrific location.
Very positive experience
We stayed there with our 2 young kids and it was spot-on. It is spacy enough and has all the mod-cons you would expect (only exception being a dishwasher but we were not going to cook anyway). The owners who live just above are friendly, helpful and totally respected our privacy. Location is great, off the beaten path in a very historical part of town, yet very close to public transportation that will take you downtown in 10 minutes.
Gorgeous apartment, great location
This pretty, historical apartment was a wonderfully comfortable stay. The owner met us promptly on arrival and provided all the information we needed. The apartment was beautifully clean, and attractively decorated, with interesting period features - I think the house is a couple of hundred years old. It's perfectly modernized, however!
The location is excellent, right at the foot of the Freedom Trail. There's a shopping street just round the corner with a supermarket, convenience stores, etc, and it's a very attractive part of town. Highly recommended!
This place is in a good location - easy walk to the subway, food & liquor stores, restaurants (except breakfast), yet it is on a quiet street. It would be great if it had some maintenance, starting with the odor. I left a list in the owner's book, as did a previous tenant. The bed is perhaps the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced; I think it needs a new mattress instead of a board under the old one. I realize that this is not "hosted", but one personal contact in the 5 days we were there would have been nice.
Nice stay in Boston close to city center
In the cosy close-to-center suburb of Charleston, in the souterrain of a vintage house. Hostess andrea is nice and provides hints & tips to explore the city.
Very quiet place with the bedroom facing away from the street onto a backyard. Own, very clean bathroom ensuite.
Caveat: no breakfast provided, but there is a kitchen for the first coffee and the next good breakfast place is just around the corner - Sorelle in Winthrop St.
Eating places are close - pizza at figs, for example.
Car is not required as close to the T (5 min to bus, 10 min to subway), with a seven-day pass you can even travel to downtown by ferry from the old Naval Yard one bay from the USS Constitution.
Parking space difficult (we dropped the rental car as we arrived).
I can wholeheartily recommend this place, I would try to stay there when in Boston next time.
Great location, felt like home.
Conveniently located near a bus line & subway stop in Charletown, this was a great place to stay. Having a kitchen and living room allowed me to relax and eat home cooked meals. The private patio was lovely and a great spot to enjoy coffee in the mornings. The hosts were very nice and helped me put up the storm windows, as the weather was cooling down during my stay. A small thing - but I especially loved the dinnerware and the decorating touches in the apartment.
Aussies at Monument House
In august 2012 I was attending the annual conference of the american academy of Management with my partner and opted for Monument House instead of one of the conference hotels. Was a smart move - a third of the cost and a far better experience. Mh is on Bunker Hill, in a restored 19th century house. Bunker Hill monument at the top of the street, a great Liquor store around the corner and a major shopping centre with grocery shop and restaurants 2 blocks away. Access to city via Community College subway also easy. I used to run to the swimming pool on Bunker Hill street in the morning (about 8-9 mins run each way) with pool opening at 7am. The unit itself is self contained and we did do some cooking. Best part was own private patio area in the back garden. Place does have a musty smell being as it is a basement apartment. But this minor detail (I've been an asthmatic and I was fine). A great Boston option
Apartment is located close to Bunker Hill/Old Ironsides as well as the Community College subway station, grocery store and CVS pharmacy. The apartment was clean and good for two people. Owners are very friendly and informative.
This was a great location at a great price. The hosts were helpful and it was nice to have a patio and separate rooms. Right near Bunker Hill you can see where you are from anywhere in Boston. 7 minutes or less to Subway, grocery store, and liquor store.
Good place to stay
The monument apt was a good place to stay. Great neighborhood great restaurants nearby. The bed was a little hard and the pillows a little musty being in the basement. Otherwise good place.
