Located in the West End area of downtown Boston, this condo puts you in the heart of the city. A nearby subway stop will take you anywhere in the area, plus there's plenty to do within walking distance, from nearby TD Garden and Haymarket Square to the infamous Boston Common and the Massachusetts State House.

Inside the condo, a spacious living area provides plenty of room for everyone to gather. You'll enjoy hardwood floors and modern furniture in this updated space, complete with comfy furnishings and a flatscreen cable TV.

You'll also have complimentary WiFi for when you want to look up your next historic tour outing, and an iPod dock for playing some tunes when you're ready to relax at the end of the day.

The living room leads right into the dining space, which has a four-person table and access out to the balcony. Head outside for a nice glass of wine and enjoy the views of the surrounding city.

Cook up your favorite meals in no time in the fully equipped galley-style kitchen. With updated cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, you'll have all the upgrades for easy meal prep.

Two bedrooms and two bathrooms means this condo will accommodate up to six people comfortably. The master suite features a king-size bed, flatscreen TV, and an en suite bath with a walk-in shower.

In the second bedroom, you'll find a queen-size bed and another flatscreen TV. There's a sofabed in the living room, along with a full bathroom in the hall. Enjoy access to the building's shared washer/dryers for any laundry needs.

When you're ready to explore, head outside the building and over a few blocks to Haymarket Square. From there, you'll find all kinds of restaurants, shops, and tour information. Plus, if you're looking for the iconic Freedom Trail, it's a good place to start!

About a half mile from the building, the lovely Boston Common Park & Public Gardens are a must-see. At the top of the hill, you'll also be right by the beautiful Massachusetts State House. Walk through the historic Beacon Hill neighborhood for a scenic detour on your way to the park and state house.

For shopping, nothing compares to Newbury Street in Back Bay about a mile or so from the building. Simply hop in a cab or take the train and you'll be there in minutes. This busy street features both designer brands and local boutiques, with some delicious restaurants mixed in.

Whether you're looking to learn about Boston's storied history or simply visiting for school or work, this dynamic city has plenty to offer. The Boston Museum of Fine Art showcases amazing exhibits year-round, while the Harvard campus in Cambridge is another must-see for any first-time visitor.

Absolutely lovely apartment, great views at night and sunrise over the clock tower, comfortable beds, close enough to walk everywhere, great whole foods shop around the corner. Made for a fabulous base to see Boston.
Megan S. Nov 2018
The place was great. The only complaint would be the bathrooms (especially the master bath) are in much need of an update. They have a lot of stains, mold and damage that should be taken care of. Otherwise the place as wonderful. We used the kitchen everyday and it was well stocked for our cooking needs. There is laundry in the basement which was clean and easy to use. The location is great to get to downtown Boston with a short walk to either the blue or red line which make it quick to get around the city. There are also many places to eat in a short walking distance and a Whole foods for groceries within a 5 min walk. Beware that the pool is outdoors and only available in the summer.

My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed in the Family Getaway for two nights, and we absolutely loved it! The condo is within walking distance of restaurants, a grocery store and everything on the Freedom Trail. The condo is spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the kitchen has the bare necessities. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Boston.

Rooms are spacious & fit extra air mattress. Clean & quiet. Enjoyed the outdoor patio. Excellent location, walking distance to major tourist areas.
John A. Jul 2018
This place was very comfortable and roomy for four adults and one toddler. Location was great close to main site and subway station. The only small thing was in their master bedroom shower the flooring could use replacement. I would definitely come back and recommend this place for anyone.
James C. Jul 2018
Loved staying at this west end apartment. The apartment is nicely appointed, very comfortable and right in the middle of things in Boston. Easily walk to all the places or to a T stop to get to those further out. Management quickly responded to questions and the concierge at the apartment was very friendly and helpful. Parking was expensive, but I knew that going in.
Kristen C. Jun 2018
We loved this apartment and its location. Whole Foods, CVS, and Starbucks are right around the corner. They have a pool table and ping pong table by the pool, and a great view from the living area.
Eric Z. Jun 2018
For less than a hotel room, we had a great apartment in a terrific location. Lots of dining choices in walking distance, and a short walk to the T. The apartment is comfortable, the TVs are great. Never had a worry.
Chris H. May 2018
The apartment is well equipped with everything you might need
Very Clean and tidy convenient location for most of Boston, all in all would recommend to friends and family
Nathan H. Apr 2018
My husband and I traveled to Boston for the weekend with our 2 year old and our 9 month old. We found the condo to be HUGE and beautiful. It was perfectly located, and we could be to the harbor, market, northside or commons within 15 minutes walking distance. If we come again, and the rate is reasonable, we will be staying again. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!
Catia S. Apr 2018
Very nice lay out, perfect for a group of 4. Very central, all worked in perfection. Thanks Vacasa

I had a short trip to Boston with my family and the West End Apartments were our first option. We felt like at home, really nice flat with fantastic facilities, surrounded by cafes, supermarkets, local markets, restaurants etc etc

We totally recommend the West End Apartments for those who are looking for a fantastic relation quality - price rate

I took my parents here for three weeks while attending Mass General Hospital. The location is great. The unit is perfect for families that want to cook, the beds are great and comfortable, the bathrooms are decently sized with great water pressure.

I will rent this place again soon for another visit.

We loved our stay in this West End apartment- beautiful apartment. It had everything we needed for our week long stay. The apartment is cozy and beds are comfortable. It's in a great location and within walking distance to many attractions (Boston Children's Museum, New England Aquarium). The neighborhood is also very nice and it was convenient to have a Whole Foods and CVS nearby.
Dawn B. Oct 2017
Spacious, good storage, comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, clean with loads of linen, near to Blue Line T, great views, what more could you want? Will be back if we are in Boston again.
Tracey C. Oct 2017
The condo was clean and roomy. The condition was true to the pictures too. The area is very nice and amenities are within walking distance. The kitchen is lovely, but poorly stocked. The late check-in is inconvenient and seems unfair for the price you pay.
Manager response:
We will inspect the kitchen inventory and replace any items that may have gone missing. Thank you!
Kami L. Oct 2017

Beverly R. Oct 2017

Joan N. Oct 2017

This is a great place for two couples. Plenty of room and comfortable accommodations. Public transportation is close by. Historical sites are in walking distance.
Beth H. Sep 2017
WE have already completed another review for VACASA- please check and use. Basically the apartment was great but the service from VACASA was non-existent,
Marjolaine M. Sep 2017
We loved this apartment very well located, close to subway, quiet, large, clean, very well equipped kitchen, paying parking $ 35 / day, closed from Whole Foods Market, restaurants, pharmacy.

Great place to stay when visiting Boston
Thomas K. Aug 2017
First time in Boston and our stay went very well. Property was a good location and it was very clean.
Keith R. Jul 2017
We spent 4 nights here with 2 adults and 2 older teen boys. The unit is within a mile to a lot of destinations including the North Station T stop. The full kitchen is handy for fixing meals and storing snacks since eating in Boston can be $$$. We highly recommend this building. It is secure and quiet.
Laura F. Jun 2017
We really enjoyed our Boston vacation rental. The whole rental process with Vacasa was an efficient and pleasant experience. We took Amtrac to North Station in Boston and found that it was a comfortable 6 min. walk to our unit! Loved the Rental Unit and views of the city and parks from our balcony. Easy walking to all of Boston's North End Attractions, Museums, Markets and Restaurants. Hope to go back to Boston soon and will definitely repeat this process with Vacasa!!
Heidi M. Jun 2017
Great condo. Great location. Loved the view and the small outdoor balcony. TV's in each room. It is within walking distance of many attractions. Thumbs up!
