There are so many reasons why we love this sophisticated apartment overlooking Boston Harbor, it’s hard to know where to start!
Maybe a good place is in the living room…
The apartment has a decidedly contemporary feel while the exposed brick work and arched windows remind you that you’re in Charlestown’s historic Navy Yard. The space is reflective of Boston itself – a perfect blend of good ol’ fashioned New England and laid-back elegance.
When you stay here, it feels like you’re being invited to take things easy. Settle on the couch as you sip a freshly brewed coffee while thumbing through the morning papers. Maybe your significant other could be flipping some eggs over easy in the kitchen ready for a lazy breakfast? Speaking of the kitchen…
Boston is renowned for its wonderful, and eclectic, restaurant scene. The waterfront is dotted with places to sample the city’s spectacular seafood, so you’ll certainly be spoilt for choice. However, one of the many great things about staying in a self-catering rental is picking up some local produce and cooking a leisurely meal at ‘home’. This kitchen has everything you need to do just that.
Boston is packed with things to see and do so having a squashy bed to plunge into at the end of a busy day is a must. Like everything else in this apartment, the bedroom is warm, inviting and peaceful.
Tempted by the sea view from the apartment? It’s time to venture out and explore…
Stroll past the harbour and along the Freedom Trail where you’ll encounter historic attractions such as the USS Constitution, the Bunker Hill Monument, museums, parks and more. While this apartment isn’t centrally located, public transport links means getting to the heart of the city is a breeze. Hop on the ‘T’ public transport system and chat to the locals to get a feel for the place.
As one of the oldest cities in the US, Boston (founded in 1630) is a beautiful blend of old and new. Soaring glass skyscrapers flank Georgian townhouses, and classic museums stand shoulder to shoulder with cutting-edge art galleries.
One of the best ways to get introduced to the city is by joining a Boston Duck Tour. After your tour guide (or conDUCKtor) has welcomed you aboard a World War II-style amphibious landing vehicle, you’ll be driven across land and sea as you learn about Boston’s famous landmarks, from Copley Square to the Cheers bar. It’s a great way to find your feet and get you thinking about what to see next. The Museum of Fine Arts, the New England Aquarium and Fenway Park are all well worth a visit.
Refresh at lunch by dining on fresh lobsters and oysters, indulgent cheesecake or, if you fancy a little lunchtime pick-me-up, a spicy Bloody Mary. In the evening, head to a bar where you can mingle with the locals over cocktails to the sound of live jazz before making your way back to your apartment.
A Boston break in this waterfront home is smooth, stylish and super-cool.
“Just returned from two weeks staying in this lovely, clean, spacious apartment in one of the best neighbourhoods in Boston. Highly recommended on every level.”
“Bright clean and very comfortable. Everything perfect for our holiday. Location within Navy yard was very convenient, and we made use of the water ferry every day.”
“It was great coming ‘home’ to ‘our’ apartment which was fitted out with everything we needed and was very comfortable. The owner was a very gracious host – he had even stocked the apartment with basic food necessities to get us through the arrival.”
