Easy Access to Downtown and Airport

Apartment - Private room · Orleans Street, Boston, MA 02128, United States

The Space

Whether you are in town for a weekend or a month, this private room in our recently renovated turn of the century apartment will be your home away from home.

Your incredibly bright and sunny room has a queen bed, television with access to streaming movies and shows, desk and large closet, and overlooks our shared garden and patio space. In the event that bright and sunny is not your style, the room does come equipped with light blocking shades! You will have access to a private bathroom stocked with clean towels and toiletries for your use.

Enjoy easy airport access (short walk to free airport shuttle) in a clean, quiet and public transit accessible neighborhood. We live in historic Jeffries point, a neighborhood with Federal style brick homes, unobstructed views of the Boston skyline, beautiful parks and bike paths, fantastic restaurants and rapid access to downtown.

We are a two minute walk to the Maverick Blue Line subway station which is just one stop from downtown. Our neighborhood is permit parking only (with the exception of Sunday) so if you are driving here, we might not be the best choice for you. There are several Zipcars directly across the street from our house. We are also more than happy to lend you our bicycles.

Ben spent his childhood exploring Boston, and Molly is a former tour guide. We would love to help you plan your trip, and take advantage of historic sites, and insider treasures. Molly speaks fluent French, and can communicate on a basic level of Spanish.

We will provide a continental breakfast, and you are welcome to use the kitchen if you would like to cook.

  • Molly & Ben were wonderful hosts. They were quick and responsive when we asked them questions while arranging our travel, very flexible when our plans changed and provided great directions to their place. Their apartment is cute and clean and they made us feel right at home. They even got us public transit cards for our stay there - a really nice gesture! I highly recommend staying with them.

  • Great location close to the Airport, the T and downtown. Easy to get to and a quiet neighbourhood. Great amenities to use for a small breakfast. Very clean and spacious room with lots of books available to read as well as travel books for Boston. Netflix provided which provided entertainment after a long day out. Ben was also very helpful in providing information about the area even discounts if required for the museums and other sight seeing tours. Great experience to have stayed here. :)

  • I stayed at Molly and Ben's home for one week to attend a conference downtown. Their home is lovely and comfortable, filled with sunlight . My room and my own bathroom are very spacious and very clean. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped, and there is a separate refrigerator for guests. Molly and Ben are friendly and delightful, being helpful and yet also doing their best to respect my privacy. They are seasoned travelers, knowing how to make their guest's stay comfortable.

    The neighborhood is quite safe; I always feel safe even walking alone late at night. The neighborhood is only one subway stop from Boston's prime waterfront, and about three short stops from downtown. The airport is one or two stop away, but I never heard planes taking off or landing

    Their home would make a wonderful, convenient, and affordable base for any business or tourist visits in Boston

  • Could not have imagined a better way to start of our travels in the Northeast. Molly and Ben are kind, considerate and gracious hosts. They thought of everything we could possibly need and provided it beforehand. Their home is immaculate; the space is so wonderfully decorated, I just wanted to stay there forever.

    Can't beat the location either. Easy walk through the park from the Airport subway station, and a hop, skip and a jump to downtown. The Maverick station is an easy walk from the front door and you're one stop from downtown Boston.

    All said, I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Beantown.

  • It was wonderful staying at Ben and Mollys place - very nice flat and airbnb rooms (sleeping room + bathroom), good breakfast, crazy but cute cat, great hosts! The apartment is in walking distance from two metro stations (1 stop off downtown) and from the rental car return station at the airport, which is perfect to visit Boston.

  • This was my first time using airbnb but I had a great experience! A friend of mine and I stayed with Ben and Molly. They were great hosts! The room was nice and they had anything you could think to need available even in the bathroom. The fridge had tons of breakfast things as well. They were very helpful with things to do and very friendly. The T (subway) for transportation is a close walk as well. Their kitty was a sweetheart! I highly recommend them!

  • It was our first try on airbnb and everything was awesome. You would have a very spacious room equipped with everything you need and access to a private bathroom and a guest fridge full of breakfast stuff. Molly and Ben are super nice and considerate and the lovely kitty always waits at the door when you get back. Definitely the best choice to stay in Boston.

  • #1 best spot to stay in Boston!!!! Molly and Ben are excellent hosts. They are fun, down to earth and very respectful.

    They helped me plan out my 2 days of sightseeing and even shared with me a fantastic evening walk viewing the fabulous Boston skyline. Having never traveled a subway system, Molly and Ben mapped out all my stops for me and by the end of my first day, I was an expert. Ben was easily assessable by phone and was so kind in checking on me from time to time ensuring that I was enjoying myself .

    I can not express enough how I enjoyed my stay with Molly and Ben. I Highly recommend them as you will not be disappointed!

  • Molly and Ben were the best hosts and sensitive to the needs of people travelling in an unknown city. Not only are they happy friendly people, but they gave freely of their time to provide information and maps and even surprised us with some basic provisions for us in a guest fridge on arrival. How thoughtful! The accommodation was of a very high standard with every home comfort you cold wish for, By far the best of the four we stayed at during our trip to the USA. The subway was a convenient five minute walk as well as some food shops and grocery stores nearby. Highly recommended.

  • This was our first Airbnb experience, and it was perfect! Our hosts, Molly and Ben, were warm and gracious, more than willing to offer help with any questions we may have had about the area, and their home was spotless and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay with them again on a future trip to Boston. It was also very easy to get from Logan Airport to their house, as well as the Maverick T station. - Kimberly, Mark & Alex, Raleigh, NC

About
My name is Molly, and I am an avid travellor and a warm and welcoming host. I am a native of the Boston area, but have lived and worked in Chicago and Paris. I love warm weather (hence the travel bug), cooking, reading, canoeing, and exploring new cities. I am listing a fantastic room in the spacious apartment I share with my boyfriend, Ben. Ben and I travel with Airbnb, and have had the opportunity to meet some truly fantastic hosts. We enjoy meeting new people, and sharing our Bostonian expertise. We are both from the area, and are administrators at two of the many Universities Boston is known for. We can't wait to meet you!
