Our home is a great space for travellers trying to access all parts of Boston or for the traveller that wants to be close to beach and take in some sun . Our neighbors are great and the neighborhood has much diversity and eateries from around the world . Welcome to Boston.
Our Victorian home boasts of oversized rooms, plenty of sunlight and charm. It is five minutes away from public transportation. It allows for the traveller to navigate the city quickly and easily.
There is access to a full kitchen, free wi-fi, laundry room and on-site parking. It is a shared bathroom. There are two bathrooms on the premise.
I frequently visit the house and I enjoy having conversation with our guests. Sometimes, I am avaiable to do a short tour with our guests.
I was met at the house by Steve, who is pleasant and helpful. The house is clean, and the room and bed were comfortable. The house is a short walk from the Red Line station, and getting into the city was easy and relatively fast. I would stay there again.
The title just fits perfectly. The place is totally lovely and we got to know some really nice people who shared the house with us. With a metro station and lots of shops around the corner the location is even more recommendable!
We like this house! How nice of Steve! We can find everything we need here, kitchen，shower，and laundry.
Steve is the best host ever! My friend and I went to Boston and stayed there for a few days, whenever we wanted to ask something, we always got prompt responses, and he told us a good restaurant around there which we ended up going 2 days in a row! The place was very clean and in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Steve was a very warm, friendly and welcoming person. I definitely recommend Steve's place for your stay in Boston!
Steve is a friendly and easy going host. I had very comfortable stay and I was really happy that I had a free parking space right in front of the house. The bed was very comfortable, too. He gave me towels and two bottles of water and that was very nice too. Thank you Steve :)
Steve's house was indeed cozy and comfortable. A short T ride to downtown Boston (15 min on the red line).
There are five rooms (two on the first floor and three on the second floor), one shared bathroom, and one shared half-bathroom / laundry room (no lock on the door). The two of us had no issue at all getting a chance to use the bathrooms - but not all guest rooms were occupied at the time. Steve doesn't live there but has a maintenance person (unfortunately we didn't get a chance to meet either of them). Steve was very kind to leave bottled water and nice notes for us - thanks!!!
The only thing that didn't go smoothly was getting the keys. Steve promised they would be waiting in the mailbox, but they turned out to be inside. We were lucky that one of the residents was home and was kind to let us in.
All in all, Steve's place is great for a weekend getaway. Thank you!
We had a great time at Steve's place in Boston! Steve is a great host and made us feel very welcome. The house is in a lovely older building but the facilities are modern and comfortable. The area is residential, so quiet at night. As others have mentioned Steve doesn't live there but comes by each day and we enjoyed chatting to him and the other guests (I think there are 4-5 rooms total). The room was large and bright and there is a communal living room and kitchen for use. The house is in Dorchester but it was easy to get into the city - the train is only a few minutes walk away and about a 20-min trip in. There are a few decent eating options nearby (the Blarney Stone had good food) and some basic supermarkets/convenience stores within walking distance. The only downside was we weren't in Boston long enough - we'll have to come back! Thanks for a great visit Steve!
Room is neat and quite spacious, the private house is located Dorchester. The area around is not so busy with places to eat or hang out but there are supermarkets!. Steve was helpful and flexible with the booking.
Just make sure you check the metro repair schedule for the weekends if you are planning to use the public trans.
Thanks for the stay! We had a nice time!
This not a B&B. It is a room in a boarding house. Clean and comfortable.
We were looking for a place to stay outside of Boston and this was fine for one night. When we arrived, we had expected to stay in the room posted and paid for but instead were given a different room with a double bed and one pillow. The room was clean and comfortable for a night. Steve tried to work things out and returned some of our money as we were given a different room.
There were more people staying in the house than anticipated but they all kept to themselves and were not disruptive. The bathroom could have been cleaner and it was not as easy to find parking. However, Steve later told us it was safe to park behind the house. Positives for us included its close proximity to the metro station and the maintenance man was very helpful in telling us about the Red Line and navigating around Boston.
