This home is set up a little differently than what I had envisioned from the pictures but it did NOT disappoint! Steve had a book of recommended places to eat or visit while staying at his home which we found very helpful when deciding on meals. It is within walking distance to some local (and very good) restaurants, which is nice because Boston parking is expensive! This places is minutes from the airport which was nice since we had extra things to do before take off (returning rental car, checking bags, getting my 1 year old a lap ticket, etc). We brought our own pack and play to use but Steve had one in the closet available. When we arrived he personally showed us around the home and even found some toys for my son to play with. Steve answered any and all questions I had and was available for us throughout our entire stay. This is very much recommended and would stay here again if/when returning to Boston area.

Steve and Diane are super nice!!! Our flight got delayed, and it was around 10:30 PM when we got to their house. They were waiting with patience, and Steve detailedly distributed every corner of the house to us. He also recommended a fantastic Chinese restaurant to us, my grandma loved it. Definitely would choose Steve's house next time if it is available. Steve和Diane人超级好!!!我们航班误点,导致晚上10:30才到他们家,他们耐心地在客厅里等我们。Steve向我们详细介绍了屋子里的每一个细节,同时推荐了一家中餐馆,充分满足了我外婆的口味。绝对推荐去波士顿的人选择Steve家!

Steve is really a good host with quick and warm response. And the house is bigger than we think and it's clean and cozy. Even our plans changed a lot Steve could work with that with patience. This is the first time for me to use Airbnb and Steve and his house just made my travel a memorable one.

Married to Diane, the gal in the photo. We came to love airbnb in early 2012. First we rented as a couple, then we tried it with our children. We had great experiences in Germany and Israel. Now we try to offer the same to others, here in Boston.
