The chef's kitchen includes granite counters, stainless steel appliances (refrigerator that includes filtered water and ice maker, convection oven and dishwasher/disposal) and bar seating.

Other features on the main level include dark hardwood floors, ceiling fan with wall remote control, dimmable lighting and movie-theater lighting recessed in the crown moulding. The leather couch offers motorized reclining seating and the television options include Comcast/Xfinity digital TV with HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and Starz. Off the kitchen, there is a medium-sized deck (12'x9') with a 5-burner gas grill and seating area for 6 that is exclusively for you and isn't shared with anyone.

The home provides 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor with a full bathroom (tub). All linens, towels and basic toiletries are provided. Two bedrooms include queen sized mattresses (one is a firm memory foam and the other is a standard mattress) and the 3rd bedroom is smaller with a daybed that converts from a twin to a king sized bed. There is closet space and shelving/drawers available to you for your belongings in each of the bedrooms and the bathroom is stocked with towels, toiletries and amenities for your use (shampoo, soap, etc.). Both bedrooms with queen beds have ceiling fans and overhead lighting.

The home also provides free wifi, keyless entry, central air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout.

Other essentials:

Full linens (sheets/pillows, etc.) and towels are provided and all beds/pillows are protected with anti-bacterial/waterproof casings for cleanliness. There is shampoo/conditioner/body soap in the shower and you can use any amenities you wish (hairdryer, iron and clothes steamer, etc.). If there is anything specific you need for your trip, I'm happy to supply if possible.

Guest Access

You will have access to the entire space and will be there alone, this space won't be shared with myself or anyone else while you are renting. You are able to use the home as your own, feel free to use the kitchen and any supplies, do laundry, watch movies and enjoy the home.

Interaction with Guests

I am available for anything you need but only around if you'd like to meet or need assistance. I have a car and I'm happy to help with anything you may need in the event of a bind. I can have the kitchen stocked or prepare any supplies you may need in advance at the home.

The Neighborhood

South Boston is one of the hottest neighborhoods in Boston as of late given its proximity to the Seaport area with restaurants, bars and a bustling nightlife. We are also conveniently located to the convention center (BCEC) and downtown (Financial District, Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market) along with subway access on the redline (Broadway T stop is 0.6 miles away) and frequent bus routes to Copley Square or Downtown Crossing (#11 bus).

My home is located on a one-way street off a main street in South Boston. It is mostly a quiet neighborhood and the majority of locals are twentysomethings/early thirtysomethings as well as local South Boston residents. There is more activity on the weekends but this is mainly a residential area with the bars/nightlife about 0.5 miles - 1 mile away. Places range from 5-star (Del Frisco's, Morton's Steakhouse) to sports bars (Remy's) and lounges (Lucky's).

You can grocery shop at Foodie's market with many organic options and fresh meats to select from (0.4 miles away) as well as eat/order take-out from many pizza and wrap/salad shops in the immediate area.

Getting around

We are close to many hot locations in Boston:

Subway stop - Redline T at Broadway: 0.6 mi

BCEC (Convention Center): 1.0 mi

Bus to Copley Square: Take #9, the stop is 350 feet from the house, and the bus ride is 1.8 mi

Waterfront/Seaport Area: 1.2 mi

Laugh Boston (Comedy Club): 1.0 mi

Beach/Castle Island (Carson Beach): 0.8 mi

Foodie's Urban Market: 0.4 mi

Starbucks: 0.6 mi

Dunkin Donuts: 0.2 mi

Rental agreement - Per my insurance policy requirements, by making a reservation and ultimately booking the home, you are agreeing to the following:

1. You're responsible for ensuring that the accommodation is left in the condition it was in upon check-in.

2. You shall be liable for any damages caused by your own acts and omissions (including without limitation failure to timely vacate the accommodation) and also for the acts and omissions of any individuals that you invite or otherwise allow into the accommodation.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask in your inquiry or at any time during your stay.

Note - We don't charge additional cleaning fees or for additional people and have a queen-sized airbed for your use if you need more than 3 beds. Also, keep in mind Boston hotel taxes are 14.45% when considering your options, for a $600 stay that is an additional $87.

Loved the city! Loved the house! Perfect Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Boston for a convention and we decided to stay in a house instead of a hotel. I am so glad that we did! We greatly enjoyed walking from the house to local restaurants and grocery stores. The city was only a subway or 10 min uber trip away. We loved the backyard and the decor. It was a great getaway. The owner Tiffany was friendly and accomodating. She was only a text message away. She checked on us throughout our stay and made sure that everything was going well. The house is furnished with everything that you could want or need. We will definitely request this home on our next trip to Boston!

Great Rental - Walking Distance to Convention Center

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house 2 times in last year - it is a great alternative to overpriced Boston hotels, it is only a 15 minute walk or a $7 uber to the Boston Convention Center. There is a small gourmet grocery store nearby along with restaurants, bars, bakeries. The house has every amenity you would need. Will definitely stay here again...

Great Bean Town Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

First off the house is super cute- the decor is lovely- you can tell Tiffany takes a lot of pride in her home. From the floor to the ceiling - it was beautiful.

This was a close cab/uber from Faneuil Hall, the North End and the Back Bay.

The deck was beautiful- we did not get to enjoy it but it would be perfect for a BBQ!

This house would be an excellent choice to rent for a Sox Series weekend, a graduation weekend or just a great girls weekend.

Awesome.

We are a sales crew from Maine down for the An event at the Convention Center. The house couldn't have been better. Great house. Great location. This house is as advertised. Pictures are true representation of what you will get. We hope to be staying there again next year.

Amazing place and great host!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful, exactly as pictured. Tiffany was very helpful with information regarding parking, details of accommodations, and transportation. The location was perfect for the 5 of us, safe and beautiful to walk through. Also uber readily available and inexpensive in this area. Would definitely stay here again!
