Interaction with Guests

We check in each guest personally, except for the very rare occasion that both of us are out of the house. If that is the case, we will arrange to leave the keys somewhere accessible.

We interact with all of our guests differently. Some are very quiet and private and only use the room to sleep in between exploring Boston. Others like to talk and swap stories, and we enjoy that too.

We have played board games with guests and watched movies together.

Sometimes we are very busy and don't have much time to interact socially, but we are always available to answer questions and solve problems.

The Neighborhood

Roslindale is a fun neighborhood in Boston. It is diverse and full of life.

There are many unique family-owned restaurants in Roslindale Square: Indian, Chinese, Nigerian, Pizza, Mexican, Sushi, Italian, Bakery, Cheese Shop, Wine Shop, Fish Market, and more.

If you travel a few minutes in the other direction, you can find even more wonderful dining and shops in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood.

Getting Around

The subway (the T) is less than a 10 minute walk from our apartment. If you are not in the mood for walking, we are on a main bus line, and about 10 different buses stop by our house. Our house is the second stop, and the bus stop is literally right in front of our apartment. The most you'll ever wait for a bus is 5 minutes during busy times, and 15 minutes in the middle of the day and late at night, but through most of the day the wait is only 2-3. The buses also have smartphone apps that let you know exactly when they'll be coming by. Since we are right across the street, you can avoid waiting in the cold!

The T stop is "Forest Hills," which is at the end of the Orange Line. This is important because after a busy day of exploring you may fall asleep on your ride home. Since it's the end, you will not miss your stop!

Other Things to Note

We offer full kitchen access: dishes, oven, cooking tools, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, fridge, and hot-water heater/kettle. Most people take advantage of all the good restaurants we have near us rather than cooking.

House Rules

You will be sharing a bathroom, so you must be considerate of time spent in the bathroom in the morning when getting ready.

If you use the kitchen, please put the dirty cups, bowls, plates, and silverware in the dirty dishes tub, and hand wash all of the pots, pans, and cooking tools you use. Please clean up any mess you may have made. Remember to turn on the fan when using the stove or oven so the fire alarm does not go off from the steam!

Please only smoke outside, away from the apartment building, and dispose of your cigarettes responsibly.

Checkout is at 11:00 am, please inquire if you would like to check out later or leave your bags with us for the day. If we are not awake/home when you leave, please leave the passes on the desk in your room, lock the front door behind you, and put your keys in the lock box behind the front stair case.
