About this listing

Our 1 bedroom penthouse brownstone apartment has panoramic Boston views from a huge private roof-deck. It's walking distance to famous Boston destinations like Copley Sq., Newbury St., and the Public Garden. In a safe, quiet neighborhood.

The space

Our sun-filled, modern 1-bedroom apartment is on the top floor of an historic Victorian brownstone building, located on a quiet side-street of Boston's coveted South End neighborhood. We love everything about our place, but the highlights are definitely our private roof-deck and private balcony.

Guest access

The roof-deck is huge! It features two lounge chairs, a brand new outdoor dining table with umbrella (that seats up to 8 people!), a barbecue, many flowers, trees, and a small herb garden. To top it all off, we have exquisite, unobstructed views of the Boston skyline, including the famous Prudential and Hancock towers.

Our private balcony can be accessed through both the master bedroom and the second bedroom, which we have converted into an office. The balcony features a brand new outdoor dining table for two -- perfect for a romantic glass of wine at night, or sipping coffee after you wake up in the morning.

The entire apartment has hardwood flooring throughout, and ample natural light. There's a skylight; several floor-to-ceiling glass doors; and many large windows. Our apartment also has a washer/dryer in-unit, and a spacious, recently-updated bathroom with granite countertops and a glass-sided shower.

Our kitchen is fully-stocked with all the pots, pans, spices, and utensils you could possibly want. We love to cook! We have several high-quality food processors and we're suckers for cool cooking gadgets, so you'll find some great, unique items on our shelves.

The kitchen appliances are all just a few years old, including a four-range gas stove, an oven, a microwave, a disposal, and a large fridge/freezer. An expansive gourmet breakfast bar, complete with beautiful granite countertop, seats two.

Our apartment has a modern open floor plan: the kitchen, bar and dining table are in the same room as our couch, desk, and television. The TV is wall-mounted, flatscreen, 60 inches. We have Internet but no cable -- we watch shows using our Apple TV, which is easily accessed on the television for you to enjoy Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Showtime, HBO, and more.

The sunny master bedroom has a Queen-sized bed and ample closet space. The office features a large desk for work or studying needs. Our apartment has central air and heat, which is easily controlled from a wall thermostat. The building is very secure. All visitors must be buzzed into the building by a resident inside.

Stunning little flat in an incredible location, only a 5 minute walk to the nearest subway station to see the rest of Boston. Very clean, exactly as described, very responsive hosts. Couldn't have wished for more!

Marc and Stephanie are incredible hosts who made our experience everything we wanted and more. The apartment is beautiful, spacious, clean, and they even welcomed us to help ourselves to their food and drink. They certainly made us feel at home, and I would absolutely recommend this listing to anyone looking for a fun weekend in Boston, as this location is central to a large portion of the city. We had a wonderful stay!

My stay was absolutely amazing, I was so sad to leave! The apartment was stocked with everything I might need, which is always nice while traveling. Best of all was the location! About 15 minute walk to newbury street and even closer to the T. Can't imagine having a better place to stay.

We had an incredible time in Boston and Marc and Steph's place was the perfect spot for our trip. The location is fantastic, especially for anyone who has not gotten a chance to spend much time in the Back Bay area. Very cool feel to it with all the red brick and cobblestone sidewalks. Lot's of good little bars and coffee shops, and if you are staying for the weekend, you have to try Masa's brunch. Really easy to get downtown or over to Fenway Park from there as well. As far as the place itself, we loved the layout and feel of their condo. It's both cozy and modern, with exposed brick walls and spiral staircases. Marc and Steph were great hosts and made everything incredibly easy and welcoming. You can tell pretty quickly they are happily living life together and we wish them nothing but the best. We also LOVED the roof deck, and it really made for a unique experience, with the string lights and view of the Hancock tower. We actually spent one night up there drinking wine and listening to music after a long day of running around the city. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Marc and Stephanie were great hosts. We did not meet them personally but they were very responsive via text and even called to help my husband navigate their TV system. We were welcomed with thoughtful details that made us feel right at home and their space is truly amazing. Neither my husband or I, wanted to leave at the end of our stay. The location is absolutely fabulous. Marc suggested some amazing local restaurants and we spent a good portion of our trip exploring the South End, truly an amazing neighborhood, my new favorite in Boston! The apartment is just a five minute walk from the Orange Line and there are a few markets within walking distance. I literally cannot say enough good things about our stay. The house was clean and even more than we could have hoped for. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family and hope that we can stay there again soon!

Wonderful apartment with an amazing roof deck! What a view! And so very nice to be able to take a glass of the wine Marc and Stephanie left up to the roof and just enjoy the evening! Absolutely no problems at all with this great place. Marc was a joy to deal with and easy communications are just another plus!

We are quiet professionals who love to travel and experience different cultures. Marc's background is as an entrepreneur and consultant. Stephanie is pursuing her passion as an editor. Because our work can often be done remotely, we can travel around while still working. This makes Airbnb a wonderful concept for us. We have traveled and lived all over Europe but have decided to settle in Boston because it's such a wonderful city. Marc is an avid runner, snowboarder and cook. Stephanie is also an avid cook, and she's happiest curled up reading a book or sipping a glass of wine.
