Perks for the Parents

This 1800s home in Charlestown, Boston, is an easy water taxi ride from the city center and is located beside a playground and basketball courts. Set over 3 floors with bathrooms and TVs on every floor, it is in a charming family-friendly area of the city. Within a short walk, there are multiple coffee shops, including a Starbucks, a Whole Foods, CVS, Ace Hardware, public library, and several options for dine-in or delivery. At the center of town is the Bunker Hill Monument and you can pick up the Boston Freedom trail there and follow it into the Charlestown Navy Yard and then over the Charlestown Bridge to the historic North End for some delicious Italian and cannoli.

Why Kids Love it

This is a family house Ideal for families with children of all ages, although note that there are no stair gates. Filled with toys and books on every floor, the house has a finished basement level playroom with play kitchen and mini trampoline and a second floor living room with a cabinet filled with board games. It is located right next door to a playground and street hockey/basketball courts. For a fun day out, take the commuter ferry or a water taxi from the Navy Yard over to Boston, getting out at the New England Aquarium. It’s easy to walk from there to Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market for lunch.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 days. Stroller, Pack’n Play, and pressure gates are available for use. However the safety of children in the home is the guests’ responsibility: the house is not 100% child-proofed. The home has 3 stories plus a basement level, and steps at front and back doors. Stairs inside the home are steep. Pet(s) live on property - 1 dog who will be away during your stay. The house is cleaned prior to each booking. There is no parking at the property and resident-only parking on street 8pm-8am during the week, plus some 2-hour parking nearby. Contact the host in advance for parking options. Car rental is useful but not essential in this location.

About the Location

The residence is in charming Charlestown, with easy access to all that the city of Boston has to offer. It is a 15-20 minute car ride from Logan international Airport and has water taxi, commuter ferry and public transit connections to the city. The location is great for families: along with plenty of shops and dining options nearby, the house is walkable to TD Garden, where the Boston Celtics and Bruins play and where you can catch a major concert or Disney on Ice performance. You can walk to 2 T stations - 1 direction takes you further into Boston, the other direction takes you to Somerville's Assembly Row, where you will find shopping and restaurants, an AMC Movie Theatre, and Boston's Legoland Discovery Center.

Accommodation Details

This 3-floor, 3-bedroom single family is set out with a large, newly-renovated open layout kitchen with dining and small sitting area on the ground floor, plus a finished basement playroom with inflatable queen mattress and full bathroom on the lower floor. The second floor has a large living room and 1 bedroom with full under twin bunk bed. The top floor has a bedroom with twin bed and trundle and a master bedroom with kingsize bed. There are bathrooms on every floor and they include tubs and showers. A small back patio has a grill for outdoor eating.

Style Notes

Modern family. This newly-renovated 1800s home has a bright open kitchen with white cabinets and counters plus a large island with 4 stools for the family to gather around. The large second floor living room has a huge TV perfect for family movie nights, plus floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinets with a cupboard full of board games for all ages. It’s a fun and welcoming family home with plenty to entertain families visiting the city; we love the colorful kids spaces, sleek kitchen and great location for fun in the Boston.

I am a stay at home mom with a wonderful husband and three fun-loving kids! Originally from Western New York, my Californian husband and I decided to raise our kids here in Boston - the only place we both agreed on! We love theatre and sports and we LOVE to travel as a family! We hope you enjoy our home and town!

Charlestown, Boston

Welcome to 'The Town'

Boston's oldest neighborhood, 'The Town' is a place to learn about the city's revolutionary history, with the backdrop of elegant houses. Visit the Navy Yard to see tall ships and take the ferry into the city, climb Bunker Hill all the way to the top for incredible views (and tired kids) or sign up for sailing lessons with older kids.
