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.

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.

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.

Lisa was a great host! She provided 2 unlimited public transportation passes which made it easy to travel to the city.

Lisa and Brian were the most awesome hosts you can imagine! They provided everything you need and more (great breakfast, netflix, public transport tickets, screen and projector, cookies :) ...) Whenever they are at home they are very communicative. I would recommend them to everyone!

If you're considering this air b&b, do it. Staying at Lisa and Brian's felt like staying at true bed and breakfast. Everything from the snacks, free transit passes, included breakfast and coffee, to helpful tips from Lisa were amazing. We felt like we were staying at a friends house. The transit station is very close and easy to access/figure out. Lisa and Brian have everything you need. Their place was comfy, clean, quiet, and affordable. Highly, highly recommended.

If you are visiting Boston and looking for a quieter environment to sleep in outside the city at night, take advantage of this! Not only does the free transit make it unique, but Lisa and Brian are wonderful people!

Lisa User ProfileLisa is a superhost.

We love hosting people from all over the world. We're friendly, quiet people who love good conversation and experiencing Boston.

Lisa currently works as a nanny, and Brian recently completed his PhD in Neuroscience. We will be moving to the Bay Area in California for work in July.
