Sophisticated, centrally located West End condo w/ shared swimming pool & gym

Explore all of Boston with ease when you stay at this chic one-bedroom condo. In addition to the convenient location, you'll have access to a seasonal shared swimming pool and a private balcony with views of the city.

Situated in the West End neighborhood, this condo is half a mile from Boston Common and three-quarters of a mile from Orpheum Theatre. Dozens of shops, restaurants, and historic sites are just a few minutes' walk away.

The interior of this elegant condo is decorated in muted neutrals, with upscale furnishings. Tranquil and spacious, this vacation rental is a lovely and relaxing place to return to after a long day of exploring the city.

Enter the home to find the kitchen on your right. Fully equipped with all of the standard appliances and extras such as a French press and a waffle iron, this kitchen is perfectly suited for preparing everything from a romantic dinner for two to a quick midnight snack. There's even a dishwasher to assist with cleanup.

Past the kitchen, you'll find a dining room table as well as a spacious living area. A leather couch and two armchairs face the wall-mounted, cable-equipped flatscreen TV. There's also a small desk and WiF if you need to get some work done.

Sliding glass doors lead from the living room to the private balcony. Patio furniture and charming city views make this an appealing spot for a meal or an after-dinner glass of wine.

With one bedroom and one bathroom, this condo can comfortably accommodate four guests, although it's best suited for a couple or a solo traveler. The single bedroom features a king-size bed and another flatscreen TV. Additional guests will sleep well on the sofabed in the living room.

This vacation rental includes access to a shared seasonal pool (open Memorial Day through Labor Day) as well as a fitness room so you can stick to your workout regimen even while traveling. There is also coin- and card-operated laundry facilities available in the building's basement.

History buffs will love this condo's location, which is close to major historical sites such as the Paul Revere House, the Old State House, and the U.S.S. Constitution. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through Boston Common or the Boston Public Garden, then stop for a bite to eat at one of the nearby restaurants.

Hop on a ferry to Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation area for kayaking, bird watching, or hiking. There are more historical sites to tour here, of course, including Fort Standish and Fort Andrews.

Whether you're in Boston for a romantic getaway, a business trip, or just to see the sites, you can't do better than this luxurious condo. Place your reservation now!

Great location!

Perfect size place and beautiful view!
Helen H. Sep 2018
The apartment is fantastically located for visiting all Boston’s many great sights and is very comfortable. Could have a few more tea cups (we are English, so unsurprisingly drink tons of the stuff!), but apart from that, it was wonderful and we had a brilliant time staying there. Special word for Jared, who provided an excellent service and was very responsive to the few small issues we needed resolved - thanks Jared, much appreciated!

Room and bed was nice, kitchen and closets were wierd, no laundry in room, was disappointing
Nathalie M. Aug 2018
The place is lovely. Well located and close to the Boston Commons which is convenient for children. Also found games to play in the apartment and that gave a touch of homy athmosphere.
Kerry B. Aug 2018
Pros - very close to the Garden, very spacious and light, great stocked kitchen, very comfortable bed, safe building and area, Whole Foods very close, great views from the balcony. Room for improvement - the toilet and some pots and pans could use a good scrubbing. The positives far outweighed the negatives - we loved it and really enjoyed our stay.
Jerry and Lisa L. Aug 2018
We loved staying here! Spacious, well equipped, quiet, nicely furnished, and pretty close to the T. The pool was very nice, too. Great experience. We would stay here again!
Kelly B. May 2018
We loved this apartment! It was spacious and very comfortable. It has great views of the city, close to the north station subway and lots of restaurants. It was also nice and quiet.

This was a great location to see the downtown Boston area.Close to all the transportation and subways.
Colleen O. Apr 2018
The place is perfect for a family - the location within walking distance of the Museum of Science, North End, and a little farther to Boston Common / State House. Plenty of space for family to relax after long day. Had everything we needed and very short walk to Whole Foods and CVS which was great.

Muy buen equipamiento del loft, con las cosas necesarias y elementos extras que hicieron de nuestra estadía mucho mejor de lo que anticiparnos.
La información proporcionada fue clara y la ayuda del personal al hacer check in, espléndida

Water outage at our originally scheduled lodging forced us to move to another location for one night. The next morning we had to pack up again and head back to original lodging. Inconvenient as heck but Vacasa compensated us for lodging and Uber rides. Jared answered all of our calls and was a tremendous help.

20th floor condo. The unit was great for the price - very clean, very spacious. The furniture and amenities were all good. The elevators can get busy at times (I suspect one or two were out of service) but wait times were never longer than 30 seconds or so. Overall a great place, I would definitely stay here again! Thanks!
Tanaz C. Oct 2017
We stayed 4 nights in the apartment and were extremely happy with everything ! The staff was extremely helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had , the apartment is located very well allowing us to walk to most of the major tourist locations and the T was located very close by . There is a supermarket right around the corner and few restaurants on the same street so food was never a worry . The building was safe and the apartment had everything we needed . Although the pull out bed is a little uncomfortable for a long stay for two adults, other than that no complaints .
Debbi K. Oct 2017
Great location to explore Boston and all it has to offer. Short walk (10 minutes) to Whole Foods, wine shop, great restaurants, as well as major attractions. The apartment was very quiet and had a great balcony for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening! You can't go wrong staying here!
Robin D. Sep 2017
We have stayed in Boston before, but not in the West End. It was a fantastically appointed apartment, super comfy bed and perfect for a wedding anniversary and pre-season Bruins game. Conveniently located to blue line to head downtown and walkable to North end. My husband and I had a trip to always remember!!! Thanks!

This apartment is in an excellent location and the views and balcony are great. The Science Museum is only a short walk away and our granddaughters spent an entire day there.
Our granddaughters also had a fantastic time at the Converse Outlet where they each picked out high top tennis shoes and decided from hundreds of designs and colors, and even colored grommets and laces, to make their own private one-of-a kind creations they could wear.
If you are traveling with history buffs don't miss visiting Ford's Theatre and the house across the street where President Lincoln passed away. This experience was like taking a trip back into history.
Marc G. Aug 2017
Perfect location to discover downtown Boston.
Carlos F. Jul 2017
Very convenient to visit waterfront and historic landmarks
Kathleen N. Jul 2017
The apt. had everything needed and more. Everything was new and clean. We even had a view of the Charles River from the balcony. It was close to the T-line which takes you directly to the airport for $2.50. It is walking distance to the Boston Common, downtown wharf area, Charles River, and Museum of Science, which is full of hands on fun things for children 5-12 years old, (and adults, too).
Alexander S. Jul 2017
Location is Great! Safe and comfortable accomadation.
I don't expect much out of a pull out sofa bed but this one had a lot to be desired. House was great location was great. It was pretty warm while we were in Boston and the Air conditioning was great in the bedroom but the living room was very warm. I guess that is what they meant by partial air conditioned. Overall great place.
Wilfred O. May 2017
It was a nice apartment and well located. However, if you were to book this whilst travelling, the need to fill in actual paper work becomes bothersome (not so much an issue if booked from home or if you have ready access to a printer/scanner).
Jessica B. May 2017
My mom and I visited Boston to see family and to sightsee. The apartment is in a great location, close to some of Boston's attractions on foot, and close to the T to access many others. The apartment was very clean and modern, though it would have been nice to have a notebook of information in the apartment with information on getting to the closest T station, good restaurants within walking distance, and other general information. It was also very helpful to have a parking garage right next door since parking in Boston is next to impossible, and driving in the city isn't fun. We had a great two days in the city and we would stay there again.

Great location amd view. Apt is modern, clean and comfortable. Very spacious.

I was very pleased with the Longfellow lookout apartment. This was my first trip to Boston - really enjoyed it .... was relieved to find this nice place in a seemingly nice/safe/convenient area for considerably less than the hotels that I was looking at. Absolutely loved the balcony and view (20th floor). Nice kitchen - we utilized the Instacart app the first night to order groceries from Whole Foods store nearby. Visited JFK Museum/Library, Freedom Trail tour, Faneuil Market, sunset harbor boat tour, Museum of Fine Arts (outstanding!). I would certainly stay at this place again - there are some inevitable signs of building age in spots, but this unit was recently remodeled, clean, and spacious. There were some noise issues (jack hammering just outside at 7:00 am Saturday) - sirens, etc., but it wouldn't keep me from staying there again. There are many options within walking distance - we utilized Uber and Lyft for the rest. There were fresh flowers on the table and a few brand new board games provided - nice touch ;-)

If you are looking for a peaceful, convenient getaway in Boston, look no further. The apartment itself is huge! My husband and I are 30 somethings and were looking to explore a new city for the weekend. This apartment is walkable to major attractions and is close to the T. We ended up parking in the lot and leaving our car the whole time- it was just easier to use public transportation/ uber. The apt feels like it is brand new! Everything is in pristine condition, you get tons of lights and the apt had everything you needed. I would def stay here again
