We check in each guest personally, except for the very rare occasion that both of us are out of the house.
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.
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.
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 15 minutes, 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 nod off on your ride home. Since it's the end, you will not miss your stop!
We do NOT offer kitchen access. Instead, we have a microwave, toaster, coffee pot, mini-fridge, and hot-water heater in the breakfast nook. Most people take advantage of all the good restaurants we have near us.
We loved our stay at Lisa and Brian's! Very cozy and professional with lots of perks and the hosts are happy to help wherever you may need it. They were even flexible with our check-out time when it turned out no one else was coming in that day. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends :)
We enjoyed our stay at Lisa's apartment. Very friendly and helpful host. Clean and heated room with warm bed. Well prepared breakfast. Travel card is a very good bonus. Well located, subway is just minutes away. Several restaurant options in short walking distance.
We stayed at Brian and Lisa's place during the coldest time of the year. That did not hinder us since we received a warm welcome, heated room, warm bed, and many extras. The special care provided by the hosts such as the guidebooks, charliecards for public transport, and provisions such as coffee and tea made our stay extra pleasant.
Lisa and Brian were great hosts. They were very welcoming, generous and easy going. There house is homely, clean and inviting and only a short walk to the train. They also provided us with breakfast and free public transport passes. Oh yeah and the bed is really comfy. Would definitely stay there again :)
Had a good time at Lisa's place,amazing and humble (website hidden) was also easy to get to the subway via the bus(bus stop is just in front of the house).
Room was nice and warm during the winter(Good heating system in the room).The floor boards can be cold at times,so it'll be a good idea to bring some indoor slip on's during the cold months.
Overall a great stay and would be happy to come back!!
Lisa is an amazing host. She is very warm and friendly. The breakfast was superb. The room is excellent. Everything is so well organized. The location is well connected to the main centre. We recommend Lisa's place to everyone. Staying with Lisa was the best airbnb experience.
We had a really pleasent stay at the apartment of Lisa and Brain. They were both great hosts. The room was nice and the bed comfortable. We enjoyed the time in boston and the provided public transportation passes were a great feature.
Lisa and Brian were great hosts! They made us feel very welcome whilst respecting our privacy. The breakfast and travel cards are a fantastic bonus. The bed is also really comfy.
While we were there Boston was experiencing a cold snap but the heated blanket and space heater kept the room warm enough to be comfortable.
Downtown Boston is also very easy to get to. Just a quick train ride away!
We would certainly stay here again.
Thank you for the wonderful time at your place. Lisa and her husband are friendly hosts. The room was great and also our baby felt great. I would always come back to you!
We enjoyed staying at Lisa's place. It was very clean, comfortable and the bonus was that they provided T passes! Would recommend to anyone thinking of staying in Boston.
