Make yourself at home in my spacious, cozy, and tidy apartment; be steps away from it all -right in the center of Little Italy, along the freedom trail, surrounded by historic sites and quick easy access to the subway and airport.

Note I sometimes list this as a private room also - you can see 40+ 5 star reviews at that listing: www.airbnb.com/rooms/3032367

The space

The apartment is located just 10 steps from Hanover, the main street in the North End (Little Italy) of Boston.

PLEASE NOTE there is no elevator (as is typical of the majority of North End apartments). It is a 5th floor walk-up.

The apartment has 1 bedroom available with a full sized bed.

The apartment is very spacious; lots of light. It's also very quiet as there are no apartments above mine and the bedroom is in the back away from the street.

I'm very flexible on arrival and departure times, leaving luggage, etc so just ask! I have a lockbox which allows you to check in anytime.

Guest access

You'll have access to all of the apartment.

Interaction with guests

I'd love to share my favorites with you and tell you about the city and neighborhood.

I rent out the apartment when I'm traveling so I likely won't be able to meet you but I'm available via call or message for any questions that come up.

Other things to note

If you will have a car please let me know in advance and I can help you find the best deal.

There are shower items (shampoo, conditioner, soap), towels, a hair dryer, towels, and a luggage rack available for you also.

Elizabeth went above & beyond for us. She was very responsive & extremely helpful in giving us ideas for dinners, daytime activities, and more. I honestly wish I could give her more stars. She was super flexible with Check-in/check-out and I even got to meet her at Check-in. I honestly couldn’t be happier with the location, space, and lead-up to our stay. My first experience in Boston went beyond my expectations & I have Elizabeth to thank for a lot of that.

Such a cute space!! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Perfect location with a main strip one block away, but still a quiet street for a good sleep. Great communication and easy check in/out. :)

My husband and I enjoyed 2 nights staying with Liz. Her apartment is very well located, close to excellent restaurants and eateries of Little Italy. The apartment itself was very clean and the room spacious with a comfortable bed and air con. Liz was very accommodating and friendly. She provided us with some great tips of where to go for coffee, dinner and dessert! We had a great stay and if we come back to Boston we would definitely stay with Liz again.

Liz was very communicative and accommodating right away. We waited until the last minute to book a hotel in Boston so the prices to stay in the downtown area were quite high! We ended up booking Liz's place as it was a great price in a great area and we figured we just needed a place to sleep at night. It was easy for us to find her place and find the keys and ended up loving the area! It was nice to be in the North End surrounded by great restaurants and be away a little bit from the more touristy downtown parts of the city. We ended up only seeing Liz once during the 3 nights we were there as we weren't there very much and she was also not home very much but when we did get a chance to meet her, she was lovely to talk to and also shared a love for travel which was nice. She also recommended some great restaurants. Would definitely recommend someone stay here on a trip to Boston!

Liz is awesome. From my interactions with her, she seemed professional, organized, and very friendly. She left simple and detailed instructions for check-in, and kept a very clean apartment. She is the ideal Airbnb host. The apartment is in an incredible location, and serves as a perfect "home-base" for tourists who want to get the most out of a visit to Boston. While we didn't end up cooking anything, Liz offered access to her general pantry items (i.e. herbs/spices/oils), which I felt was quite hospitable. I give my highest recommendation to Liz as a host, and to the apartment as a great place to stay.

Liz's place is centered right at the north end. It couldn't have been a more perfect location!! There are so many restaurants and within walking distance of everything you want to see and do. Her place was very clean, spacious, and very comfortable with everything you need. It is on the 5th floor so it's a bit of a hike when carrying a heavy suitcase but other than that you get a good exercise. The only complain I would have is that there is only AC in the bedroom, there are a couple of fans around the house but with the heat and humidity they didn't help much. Overall, I definitely recommend staying at liz's.

We absolutely LOVED our little spot in the North End!! Elizabeth's apartment was clean and inviting, and 30 steps to the Freedom trail and Hanover Street. The apartment was perfect for us. Located close to many of the sites and things we wanted to see. Boston really is unbelievably small. In the evening upon return, we would sit and watch and listen out the windows to the views down the street of the local neighborhood, and then on past to the high rises of the city. Loved the neighborhood and the food was FANTASTIC! Anything you want only steps away! Definitely not a noisy area I did not find. We did not mind the daily exit or return to the apartment as there is no elevator. Nor mind that we parked .4 of a mile a way and left the car parked for our 3 day visit. Elizabeth gave us great advice as to where to park at a discount. She also offered ideas on things to visit and where to get cannoli. We slept great every evening with the help of the air conditioner provided in the bedroom. We did not cook in the apartment, but used a couple of plates and cups which we washed before we left; but plenty of cooking things and dishes if you plan to do this. Had trouble figuring out the internet, but I really didn't care nor try too hard, I was on vacation and prefer often to not look at a computer. My only trouble and regret was on departure when we could not find appropriate parking to load our things, and in my hurried departure forgot to remove our things from her fridge. I hope this did not cause any problems and sincerely apologize for this. Great 1st Airbnb experience!!
