We've been renting high-quality furnished accommodations for over 6 years, exclusively in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. The "Luci Bella" apartment location is stellar, just 3 minutes walking distance to Boston Common, the Freedom Trail, an organic grocery store, a wine shop and many more conveniences and Boston attractions. Please note that our pricing is NET and includes all taxes, cleaning charges and payment fees.
Welcome to an elegant one bedroom apartment in a building from the late 1800's, located at the very top of the Hill and the center of downtown Boston. This luxury accommodation includes a separate bedroom with a vintage quality queen-sized bed, a spacious open plan kitchen and living area and a bathroom with high-end fittings and custom marble shower.
Beautifully restored original windows that can be raised with one finger, exposed beams and brick and a charming little fireplace capture the time period. Located on the 4th floor rear of the building for a quiet stay and nice afternoon sun. This is a recently100% renovated high-end boutique apartment designed by a master architect and built by master craftsmen.
Named "Luci Bella", this apartment derives its inspiration from the antique Italian bed reading sconces. With a leaning towards classic Italian design, and an eclectic mix of fixtures and lamps and old windows, we've had fun creating a comfortable and very livable home away from home.
Sleeping: The bedroom has a high quality queen size bed with plush firm Beautyrest mattress; down pillows and nice linens. In the living room, the day bed is a bamboo mattress twin-sized for one separate person with the same nice linens and pillows.
Electronics: Excellent wi-fi in living room and bedroom. Living room has 40" new HD television w/ internet connectivity for Amazon, Hulu, Sony Unlimited, Pandora, etc. music and video streaming services. Subscriptions not included but log-in your own or sign-up. Cable is basic package (CBS, ABC, etc.) DVD/CD Player. A windows unit air conditioner in the bedroom during the summer season, fancy fan in the living room year-round. Telephone provided with free U.S. and Canada calling.
Bathroom/Kitchen: Shower (no bathtub) with very high-end rosebud overhead spray and hand shower option. Hair-dryer in the linen closet plus all towels. 4 burner gas stove, Bosch silent dishwasher, standing refrigerator/freezer. Please note, there is no microwave.
Eco-Green: Aside from a great example of small-space design in a location that promotes walking and public transportation; bed linens and pillows are Eco-certified and cleaning agents, paper supplies and soaps/shampoos are earth-friendly whenever possible. We recycle. Cloth shopping totes are hanging at the door and the electricity is generated from wind. We re-used old wood from the demolition where possible, the insulation layers use old shredded jeans, and we installed a cork sub-layer for softer floors and additional noise mitigation.
Essentials: No smoking, no pets, no parking (ask), sleeps 3 maximum, not suitable for small children. Includes all utilities and furnishings. The owner has written a very detailed manual for the apartment and a personal guide for all services and restaurants in the neighborhood.
Expectations: Please note that Beacon Hill is on a hill in an urban historical zone, so there is a fair amount of walking if staying in this neighborhood. The apartment is a 4th floor walk-up (3 flights of stairs) without an elevator and may not be suitable for all guests.
We have other accommodations in the Beacon Hill neighborhood with different profiles, so just ask.

We would sincerely like to thank owner Paul. This was a truly great holiday. I lived in Boston some time ago and had managed to obtain some cheap flights back for a weeks vacation with my partner. This apartment was the perfect way to spend our time. Superbly located, everything is within walking distance and my favourite all time supermarket 'Wholefoods' is just around the corner. The apartment is everything others have already said, so cozy and comfortable, beautifully appointed in unassuming quaint deco and so well planned out. Fantastic is all we can say. A great job Paul - thank you!

Beautifully remodeled apartment in the heart of Beacon Hill. Easy walking distance to everything you'd want to see in Boston. Great communication with owner who responded quickly to all my questions leading up to the trip with great recommendations. I would recommend this apt to anyone looking to get a feel for the life and flavor of living in Boston. When we go back, we will stay here!!!

Its a beautiful appartment, tastefully decorated, with everything needed.
It's also in a great location - one of the quiet and beutiful streets in Beacon Hill neighborhood, close to everything you'll look for in Boston.
It was the perfect place of our Boston visit - a couple with 17 years old daughter.
One thing to take in account when considering - many stairs, but it's a small issue against the advantages

This one bedroom place is very well located, on a beautiful street on Beacon Hill. It is a 5 minutes walking distance to the Boston Common park and also close to T stations. The apartment is very elegant, clean, with a nice kitchen and comfortable bedroom. The kitchen has pretty much all the supplies you will need and everything is new. The owner, Paul, was very nice, helpful, and always available for everything we needed! We were very pleased. I would recommend this place for sure.
