This unit is located in a gorgeous brownstone building in Concord Square, in Boston’s historic South End neighborhood. The queen bed in the bedroom comfortably sleeps 2 people. The space is equipped with a full bathroom, a fully stocked kitchenette and a desk that can be pulled out to accommodate 2 people(using an extra chair located in-unit or in the basement of the property). There is a flat-screen TV in the living area with cable. Baseboard heat and in-window AC keep this unit comfortable through out the year. This unit comfortably accommodates one or two guests. When booking a unit in this building, you are booking a unit type, and may be placed in any of the 16 units.

Guest access

This unit is only accessed by stairs.

We used code locks, not keys, so you can check in at any time after the 4pm check in time. You will have exclusive access to your unit as well as shared access to the common laundry room in the basement, where laundry facilities are free.

Interaction with guests

We have prepared for your stay so that you don't need to interact with us at all during your stay. You have complete privacy.

The neighbourhood

The South End is a very urban, walk-able neighborhood in Boston. Known for its many parks, restaurants and artistic culture, this neighborhood has been the "hottest" in Boston's real estate market. Young families, professionals, doctors/nurses and empty nesters will enjoy this location.

Getting around

The unit is a 20 minute walk to the Boston Common, Fenway Park, and the shopping district on Newbury Street. The unit is also about a 5 walk from Boston Medical Center, and literally steps from some of the best restaurants in Boston, including Toro, Sieyo and Stella. Public transit is a half-block away. We recommend getting around on foot and using the T, which is our subway system. The T is located 3 blocks away and you can walk or ride to almost any destination within the City.

Other things to note

All rental units are equipped with wireless internet, cable, linens and towels, iron, ironing boards, hair dryers, coffee makers, tea kettles, toasters, microwaves, as well as a guest book with instructions and recommendations.

All building and unit doors are on secure, code-activated locks so coordinating key pick-up and drop-off is not necessary. All units in this building are accessed using stairs (there is no elevator). If stairs pose an issue for you, please contact our management team so we may accommodate your specific needs.

The property is just as it looks in the pictures: sunny, new, clean, small. The building is classic Boston brownstone and the street is beautiful: a narrow boulevard with a tree row running down the middle. The location is excellent with cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs nearby. Not as great for shopping but Newbury St isn't too far away and an Orange line T stop is maybe a 10 minute walk. If you have a car you definitely want to add the optional parking space cuz you won't easily find street parking.

The worst Airbnb ever. Everything may look perfect on website but in fact it was so small and ridiculously poor management. Arrival: He checked us in a different room, not this one we booked and paid on Airbnb. The room's calendar said it was available so we processed the booking. He said the room we paid for was not available. The stay: We slept for the first night and woke up with panic by the hammer knocking heavily and loudly on the wall above our head in the early morning. The loudness went for many hours. It's clear that the room next door was under construction before we checked in, because a ladder was left in front. Brent never tell us about this before we are here. We tried to text him on message but he never answer until now. So we called up to the apartment's management (because the phone number Brent gave to Airbnb was not exist) and asked for any solution because we booked here 3 nights and we cannot live in this environment. He replied "There's nothing I can do about this." and repeated this phase many times. Until I was deciding to call a police because we paid for 3-nights rent here to sleep but we cannot sleep and the host was not willing to solve the problem. Later, he told us to go sleep in other room but we must leave the room before 10am because someone else will be checking in. So we had to walk up the stairs in pyjamas back to our knocking room in the morning after. This is the worst stay I have ever experienced from Airbnb. The host did not even apologize us or anything to make us feel better. He acted like we stayed here for free. The apartment has 16 rooms in the building, so we aware when you book a place in Boston. Don't come here.

Place was fantastic and clean. Small quiet room on a beautiful street about a 10 minute walk to the nearest station. Door codes made getting in a breeze and not having to worry about keys during the trip was a plus. Would definitely stay here again!

The apartment is located in a great location, on a quiet, tree-lined street. My visit was for business purposes, so proximity to the convention center was important - only 10 mins walk from the apartment. Initial communication to book the apartment was harder than it should have been, but once that was pointed out, the team responded quickly. The unit was well appointed and clean, although the shower stall could benefit from an upgrade. Those points aside, I would stay here again as an alternative to a hotel.

Our experience with Brent was easy from the start. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The location on the South End/ Back bay was perfect! It was a beautiful street filled with cafes and restaurants that made us fall in love with Boston! It was the perfect place to stay if you want to feel like a local! It was also just a short walk to all of the wonderful attractions that Boston has to offer. The small studio was just as described in the listing and all that we needed for our stay. The keypad security was incredibly useful as we were driving in late at night and made for easy check in and check out. Overall I would say it was a wonderful experience!

The location was very convenient for the places we wanted to go. It's about a 20 minute walk to Fenway which is awesome. Only thing I suggest is to request extra towels before hand. We stayed for 5 days and only received 1 set of towels. I requested free towels after day 3 but did not get them.

Love to run, eat, travel, golf, work, play. Love Boston. Love the Back Bay, Beacon Hill and South End. I live in the South End with my wife and baby girls. I am a real estate enthusiast and investor - very glad to see websites like AirBNB popping up!
