We are offering 1-2 bright and beautiful private bedrooms available in a 4-bed family home in West Roxbury.
The bedrooms are clean and comfortable, and have just been renovated with new hardwood floors. A full bathroom is right next door. All toiletries (shampoo/conditioner/body washer, etc) are provided. A half bathroom on the first floor is also available.
One bedroom has a double bed that sleeps 2.
With in 10 min. walk, we have Spring st. Cafe, Donkin Donuts and Tony's place which serves the best Pizza in our town. Within 5 min. drive, there are several other restaurants, such as Japanese, Tai, American...
Parking: on street parking (driveway parking by special arrangement only), but we have never had any problem with parking.
The house is located on a quiet street in West Roxbury, next to a community center (Elk) and a church. It is walking distance to a supermarket, restaurants/cafes and a huge public park that is part of Boston's "Emerald Necklace".
It is a 2 minute walk to public transportation (bus/subway/commuter rail) that will get you to downtown Boston (Back Bay, Longwood area, Harvard/MIT,etc) in about 30 minutes.
We will provide subway cards (which offer a discount over buying once-off subway tickets), but recommend you get a weekly subway pass from the station (they are the best deal for longer stays).
We are also close to the I-95/RT 128 highways if you are driving.
Directions from the airport/train station:
The best way to get from the airport to our house is as follows (it sounds more difficult than it is):
1. There is a free shuttle bus called the Silver Line which will take you to South Station (follow signs for ground transportation). **note this is also the arrival station for Greyhound Bus/Amtrak.
2. Once at South Station, follow signs for the Red Line in the Braintree direction and check to make sure they will take you to Downtown Crossing (it should just be a few stops)
3. Once at Downtown Crossing, switch over to the Orange Line, in the Forest Hills direction. Take the Orange Line all the way to the end (Forest Hills)
From here, the #36 bus will take you pretty much right outside the house (ask to be dropped off at the Moville St stop). But we (email hidden)e Moville St. is on the west side of the bus-line while Morrell St (our street) is on the east side of the bus-line.

房东杨老师和万博士非常热心好客，我们来美国几天后不习惯美国的食物，还在他们家蹭了一顿丰盛的中式晚餐。 地址用GPS导航很准，是一幢粉色的小楼很漂亮。门牌号在墙上注意看哦。经房东介绍这个街区是非常安全的，因为有警察住在同一街区。 进到房间里后，惊奇的发现这是一个很融合的大家庭，有中国的留学生，有驻美工作的医生，原来房东还可以做走读留学生的监护家庭。 房子周围有大超市，有BestBuy买电脑，有Apple店，有牛排店，非常方便。有WiFi，有洗衣房，热水洗澡，有中式的稀饭做早餐。 来Boston的不二选择。
The house is super nice. It is very clean and cozy. The house owner is considerate. And Jim also helped us a lot. The best place to live in Boston! Love it!
The house is really cozy and clean！！！杨老师特别特别细心！！当知道我们一男一女需要分房住的时候，给我们安排好了一切，避免了尴尬。在我们行前，杨老师就给我们交代了很多东西，也给我们提供了一些非常有用的建议！！！真的觉得特别特别得温暖，在异国他乡一点也没有觉得不习惯！！！！By the way，Jim is really a helpful man，many thanks for his suggestions and help.
Very nice host family with delicious Chinese food and the room is clean, tidy, makes me feel really comfortable. I am very appreciate Van picked me up from the Train Station. Staying at their home makes me feel comfortable.
I'm a frequent traveler and airbnb fan currently abroad, and this is my family home in West Roxbury, MA. The host is my mom, a Chinese teacher, who has lived in the Boston area for 25+ years (we are originally from Beijing, China). We like to garden, cook and ballroom dance. We've always had visitors and boarders and are excited to welcome you to our home.
