Steve is a very nice host !He is so enthusiasm ,when we arrived the house ,he took us to the nearby park and we got a really beautiful (website hidden) the way,other guests are also very (website hidden) was a good stay for us!
What a wonderful visit we had! Steve is the most positive, can-do person in Boston and he always worked to make our stay enjoyable. We stayed in the upstairs room with the original, refinished pine floors. The room was large and the bed was firm and comfortable. The shared bathroom was clean, fully functional, easily accessible and maintained daily. Being so close to the Boston rail system made the location very convenient to access all of Boston quickly.
In summary, the people we met were fun to be with, very cooperative in helping us in our tours and eager to make our visit memorable. If you use the house for a staging area for Boston festivities, you will be very pleased. If you are expecting the Marriott uptown, your expectations may not be met.
Through a mix-up, we ended up spending our first night in town at the "Antique Farmhouse" in Milton, MA. Which is a great place to stay if you don't need to be in the city. (website hidden) a great spot in Dorchester for coffee/breakfast/lunch where the owner of the farmhouse is the chef. It's close to Warm & Cozy, highly recommended.
Warm & Cozy/Steve was accommodating and made us feel welcome immediately. Despite the mix-up, he made arrangements for us to stay with another host, refunding the first night's stay. He met us at the farmhouse above although we got in late and then at his place the next morning.
The space is basically as advertised. Note, this is not where Steve and his family live; there are multiple others renting rooms in the house (each room locks separately). The house is reasonably clean, likely due to the multiple renters.
The house is ~5min walk from Fields Corner T station (red line). Never felt unsafe, even walking back from the T late at night (was never alone). It's a great place to stay given the location. You can be in center city Boston in no time for a fraction of the cost.
Parking is available on the street or in the back.
Only regret: not getting the chance to have Vietnamese in the neighborhood.
Boston is such an interesting city, a cool mix of both history and progress and I think Dorchester is a good example of that. The buildings and surroundings have history but it is definitely a neighborhood that is growing. Lots of wonderful Vietnamese food and friendly people willing to give directions, etc.
Steve was quick to answer emails and texts and offered laundry, etc. when we met. The property manager Khalil was helpful with information and a quick tour of the neighborhood.
The room was fine-queen bed, wifi, shared bathroom and kitchen down the hall. The one caveat is that while the listing stated that the room was in the house, we were actually in an annex apartment building across the street. It was fine, the facilities were what we needed-a bed, bathroom, and kitchen, but didn't match the pictures from the listing exactly.
Very close to the T and a nice/clean place to stay if you are going to be out adventuring in the city.
Le quartier est très bien desservi par le métro pour Boston (30min).
L'hôte était absent mais quelqu'un de très accueillant nous attendait à la maison pour nous rendre les clés, faire le tour du propriétaire, et nous montrer l’accès au métro.
La propreté de la maison est juste correcte, probablement lié à la rotation des visiteurs.
Le prix de cette chambre est abordable, mais un peu cher pour le service.
Thank you very much for the pleasant stay we had at your location in Boston. Steve is such a warm and wonderful host and he made us feel very welcome. He went out of the way to make us feel at home. We look forward to staying at this location the next time we happen to be in town.
