Welcome to my lovely home and neighborhood!
West End is a historic neighborhood in Boston that is just 15-20 minutes away from the airport. It was leveled by the government in the 50s and is now being revitalized. One of the more famous residents is Leonard Nimoy (aka Dr. Spock from Star Trek).
My building is ~ 15 years old and is in a fabulous location. You can walk to the financial district in less than 10 minutes.
North Station is a block away with both the commuter rail and the subway.
Mass General Hospital is 5 minutes away in Beacon Hill. Whole Foods and a CVS are also just a few blocks away.
The Museum of Science is walking distance and you can even walk to MIT (about 20 minutes). Harvard Square is easier by the subway (we call it the "T" which is short for MBTA, which is shorter for Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority).
You definitely don't need (or want) a car if you stay here. It's easier to take a taxi or public transportation.
The apartment is easy to access given there's an elevator. The building is air-conditioned so it's very comfortable year round.
Windows are big and overlook the State House. (The downside of this is there is some street noise on occasions.)
The bedroom has a queen size bed. Linens are furnished.
The bath is a straight forward apartment bath with a tub. There's a hairdryer you are welcome to use. I also put out some shampoo and other toiletries.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, toaster, blender, dishwasher, coffee maker, tea kettle, and oven. (I typically use the toaster oven if it's something small.) You can get groceries at Whole Foods or CVS.
I have an adorable cat, Violet, who is a Russian blue. She is very friendly and a neighbor pops in to check on her if I'm out of town.
The living room has a large TV and the entire apartment has wireless for internet access.
Laundry facilities are in the building and I have some detergent in the closet.

Instant bookingInstant booking rentals can be booked directly within a few minutes, much like you book a hotel room on the internet. Only our highest quality rentals are chosen to be featured in our instant booking selection.
On requestTo book "on request" rentals, you need to send a request to confirm availability with the owner before booking. You will receive the owner's answer to your request directly by email. We advise sending requests to 3 or 4 "on request" rentals that interest you most. As soon as you receive a positive answer, you should book immediately; waiting for other replies increases the chances that available rentals will be booked by someone else.
Taxes and FeesHouseTrip is an online platform for holiday apartments. We do not own or manage the apartments listed on our site. We connect you with owners and managers of holiday apartments around the world, providing you with a safe and easy-to-use platform to book and pay for your stay. HouseTrip enables you to pay for your bookings online using a debit or credit card. This payment is then held securely by an independent third party until 2 days after you have arrived at the property, when it is transferred to the owner. By handling this process, certain taxes and fees are incurred, which are included in this section.
Additional FeesSometimes hosts ask for additional fees (refundable security deposits, cleaning charges, etc.) that cannot be paid through HouseTrip. You will need to pay these fees directly to the host when you arrive at the apartment.
