Beautiful historic one bedroom apartment in quiet neighborhood, walking distance from Bunker Hill, restaurants, and the oldest bar in Boston. You'll hear the sound of birds in the morning and have easy access to both the North End of Boston (10 min bus ride) and Cambridge (10 min bike ride). Bikes available 2 blocks away. You'll be staying here when we are away since we still split time between Boston and Vermont.
This sunny space has beautiful original wood floors and brick, a full modern kitchen, and a hill with vegetation and birds that greet you in the morning. Charlestown is the oldest neighborhood in Boston and this house was built in 1875. My partner and I purchased the condo recently and split our time between here and Burlington, VT, where my partner lives. You are welcome to use the washer and dryer, which are in the basement. In the picture of the bedroom, the apparatus you see in the corner is for hanging or drying your clothing.
It's all available to you, with the exception of the dresser and the bedroom closet, which are occupied by my things. Feel free to get the ironing board and iron out of the bedroom closet if you need it.
Interaction with guests
I'll be available by text, email, and phone if needed!
Other things to note
2nd bed is a comfortable queen size air mattress.
Parking is resident parking only from 8AM to 8PM during weekdays. There are no restrictions during night time hours and weekends. Nearest parking during weekdays is 1/2 mile away.
If you run microwave, toaster oven, or water boiler at the same time, it sometimes shorts the circuit. They are all on the same surge protector (on the small cart), so just turn the switch back on.
Conserving energy is important to me, so there are ceiling fans rather than A/C.
- Please take your shoes off and be conscientious to my lovely neighbors.

My girlfriend (Rachelle) and I split our time between Boston and Burlington, VT. We love nature, outdoor activities, good conversation, cooking, and learning. Rachelle is an assistant professor of global environmental equity at the University of Vermont. I am a science education faculty mentor at the Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning, a new graduate school for preparing math and science teachers. We are big fans of Air BnB, Boston, and Burlington, and we're excited to host in these amazing locations!
