Description of accommodation

The East Boston apartment consists of 4 single bedrooms, two beautiful, updated bathrooms, a common area with comfortable seating and a reading nook, as well as a shared kitchen with modern appliances.

Description of local area

East Boston is located just across the harbour from the city centre and boasts beautiful views of the city from its many waterfront parks. The style of the neighborhood is very city-like with triple decker homes, lots of apartments and homes packed tightly into each city block, and a lot of hustle and bustle. You will be exposed to many different cultures in East Boston: Latino, African-American, Chinese, etc

Just a 10 minute walk away is Constitution Beach, and 5-10 minutes on the 712/713 bus will take you to the New England harbor town of Winthrop, where you can enjoy more beaches, shoreline and beautiful views of the city. Winthrop and East Boston are both full of shops and restaurants for you to explore, as well. It’s also home to Boston’s Logan airport, so getting from the airport to your apartment is simple!
