About this listing
Airbed in private room, shared bath. Safe, clean, well-priced, and full of eclectic charm. Close to Boston, universities; 1.5 blocks from major transportation hub. Wifi, off-street parking. AirBnB Superhosts four years running.
**Please read our entire listing, including 'house rules', so you know what to expect. Also, PLEASE DO NOT MAKE A RESERVATION until after we've responded to your inquiry. Minimum stay of three nights, maximum of four.**
Sometimes available: couch or airbed in cozy, quiet living room with curtains to close it off for privacy. Couch does not open and it's not quite full-length, but most people who sleep on it say it's very comfortable. If that doesn't do it for you, please ask for our one-person airbed with feather bed and duvet which is super comfy. We have a friendly cat who will likely wander in to explore. Bathroom is one flight up stairs right next to living room and is shared with us. Please note that this room is closed off from the rest of the house by heavy drapes only, so there is visual but not audio privacy. Wireless internet; off-street parking; LIGHT use of kitchen; easy public transportation; great, safe neighborhood. Like most New England homes, house is made of wood and slightly creaky; all windows have curtains but some light comes through. Please see our other listing for more information. Kindly note this listing is only for short stays (no more than four days), and only for one person.
Multiple buses going everywhere are one block away and very frequent: a ride on one to the nearest subway takes 6 minutes.
Please note that we have a cat, who is super-cute, docile and slightly peculiar. Cat is House Owner. You cat people, you know what we mean. Stay here ONLY if you like cats and don't have allergies! We mean this, now. Because room is closed off by curtains, he WILL wander in occasionally. We will not lock him up elsewhere for your stay. :-)
