Gorgeously renovated and replete with all the creature comforts of home, our 6 bedroom/3 bathroom duplex can comfortably accommodate up to 23 guests. Featuring 2 gourmet chef's kitchens, 2 private decks, and high-end touches throughout such as a glass-enclosed shower and claw-footed tub, this is a truly remarkable urban sanctuary that is perfect for large groups, multiple families on vacation, and companies coming to town on business who seek a first-class Boston experience.
ABOUT THE SPACE
Our duplex takes up two entire floors of our home, and each floor has its own distinct flavor. The first floor of the duplex is a contemporary homage to the unique comfort and no-nonsense functionality of industrial design; the second is inspired by the crisp style of the New England farmhouse aesthetic (and much of the furniture is made from reclaimed wood!).
The first floor has three bedrooms with a total of 6 beds. Bedrooms 1 and 2 each have queen beds and bedroom 3 features two full-over-full bunk beds for a total of four beds in that room. The second floor has three bedrooms, five beds. Bedroom 4 has a queen bed, bedroom 5 has one queen and one twin, and the 6th bedroom has two full beds. Bedrooms are equipped with crisp 800 thread count West Elm linens and Tempurpedic or Casper-quality mattresses, and have attractive modern furnishing. Two additional twin beds can be set up prior to your arrival to create a sleeping arrangement that best suits your group.
Enjoy a luxurious bathing experience in our contemporary glass-enclosed shower in the master bathroom on the 1st floor. The other two bathrooms are simple, spotless, and elegant; all three bathrooms come fully stocked with toiletries (bath gel, shampoo, conditioner) as well as heaps of oversized cotton towels to make packing lighter.
After a day exploring downtown, hang out in the open-plan living areas on either floor which feature comfy couches and wall-mounted flatscreen TVs, pre-loaded with apps like HBO, Showtime, and Netflix. Connect your phone to our Sonos sound systems and kick back with your favorite playlists.
Congregate for morning coffee around our marble-topped breakfast bar, or throw together a home cooked meal in either of the gourmet chef’s kitchens, fully equipped with everything you'll need, including microwaves, ovens, dishwashers, and plenty of pots and pans. Seen enough of the city for one day? Why not stay in, pop a bottle, and gather around our large glass-topped dining table, the ideal spot to relax and relive your Boston adventures. If the weather is fine, head outside and unwind on both private decks or backyard.
Other features include in-unit laundry (washer/dryer/iron), high speed internet, and central heat/AC. Finally, should you need space for your vehicles, there are two off-street parking spots available -- truly rare in Boston!
Even though Savin Hill is part of Boston’s biggest neighborhood, it is sometimes overlooked by other Bostonians. Those of us who know about the area’s historic buildings, art galleries, bars, and restaurants are not in a hurry to tell everybody else. Savin Hill is a vibrant mix of young professionals and artists, close enough to downtown to make getting around Boston a breeze, but with enough happening in your immediate environs that you don’t need to go far to discover why our neighborhood is truly a hidden gem.
The Savin Hill subway station is a 5-8 minute walk. From Savin Hill, the Red Line will take you directly into the heart of Boston in minutes.
For those who feel adventurous, the nearest Hubway bicycle rental location is less than a five minute walk away. You can explore the city on a bike that can be dropped off at any one of the 160+ locations across the city.
If biking and public transport aren’t your thing, there are several private transportation options at your disposal (Uber/Lyft, Zipcar). If you do plan on driving, our street offers free on-street parking. Please message us regarding off-street parking as it is limited.
