The Space

The room is a large and sunny space on the third floor of a three unit building. It comes with access to a huge roof deck and a private bathroom. the apartment is very clean with a spacious kitchen and living room. We do have a small dog, but we are both sort of neat freaks so we keep the place spotless. We live near the Stony Brook T station on a quiet one way street within walking distance from a number of restaurants and only a few T stops from Boston's Back Bay Station on the Orange Line which puts you in the perfect location to get into the hustle and bustle or enjoy Jamaica Pond and the Arnold Arboretum. We are also within walking distance to the Sam Adams Brewery tour if that suits you. For Perspective's sake, you can see the Prudential building from our roof deck. We just love it here and we know you will too!

The room comfortably fits 2 in a queen sized bed. There is also a second room (not featured in this listing) that can be made available with a sleeper sofa, which can accommodate up to 2. What really makes this unit unique is the stunning roof deck and great windows! We just know you will love it!

Guest Access

You will have access to the whole apartment and the roof. The kitchen is fully appointed and we have a television in the living room.

Interaction with Guests

We both work and the dog either goes with us or to daycare. Regarding interaction with the guests when we are not working, we typically take our cue from you! If you chat us up and want to hang out, we typically can. Others prefer their privacy and that suits us just fine too!

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is great primarily due to its access to public transit and the diversity available within walking distance. In one direction you have an ethnically hispanic neighborhood with some great restaurants and bodegas and in the other direction you have a more metropolitan feel on a smaller more laid, back vibe than boston's downtown which is only a few stops away on the T if you prefer that. We LOVE living here.

Getting around

We are right off of the MBTA Orange line near Stony Brook station. We are also very close to several bus stops and you can always call a cab. Also, there is ample street parking on our street.

Other Things to Note

We do have a dog, named Didymus. He is a relatively recent rescue. He is making great progress and is pretty well trained but we are still working on it and he does sometimes whine or get scared around strangers.

  • Michael and Zachary were great hosts. My fiancé and I stayed with them for 2 months. They kept the place clean, made space for us in the fridge, and were pleasant company. The photographs are accurate. Jamaica Plain is an excellent neighborhood and Haus Michary is a short walk to excellent restaurants and public transit.

    Being working people, our schedules matched alright, but if you're vacationing you may want to ask them not to use the blender in the morning. They like protein shakes :-)

    My fiancé really liked their dog.

  • Fabulous hosts. Went for the Boston marathon and, as told by the guys, had no problems getting to Boston central from Wyman street. Really helpful and nice guys. Nice apartment, nice house, nice hosts, thank you guys for making this trip even better :)

  • Abbiamo trascorso una settimana a casa di Michael e Zachary, loro sono una coppia molto gentile, ospitale e simpatica; il loro cagnolino è assolutamente tranquillo e non ha mai disturbato.
    La loro casa è ordinata e confortevole; abbiamo trovato la nostra stanza pulita e dotata di tutto quanto serve per un soggiorno confortevole (c’era anche una bottiglia di vino rosso e alcune guide della città molto utili).
    Pure il bagno privato, a nostra disposizione, era pulito e dotato di tutto il necessario.
    La fermata della metro più vicina alla casa è a 10 min. di passeggiata (linea Orange): la zona è tranquilla e i bostoniani sono molto amichevoli e gentili.
    In due occasioni abbiamo cenato a casa; Michael e Zachary ci hanno messo a disposizione le loro attrezzature e dotazioni di (website hidden) sentiamo di consigliare questa sistemazione per trascorrere un periodo nella bella città di Boston, e speriamo di avere l’occasione di tornarvi.
    Ciao “Michary”, grazie e arrivederci da Marina e Stefano.

  • The accommodations at Michael's and Zachary's place were outstanding. The hosts were very warm and made me feel welcome. The room was comfortable and you can tell they went out of their way to make things comfortable. Easy access to the T Orange line made getting around a snap. I would recommend this place to anybody visiting Boston. Thank you M and Z (Diddy too!) see you again next time!

  • Michael and Zachary were excellent hosts! The house is just lovely, clean and charming. Their place was our last stop after a 2 weeks traveling around the U.S. so it was nice to come home to a warm, clean bed. The kitchen has everything we need, and Michael was very responsive to lend assistance. We could not have ask for a better place in Boston and would be happy to recommend this place and come back again the next time we're in town.

  • I can't say enough great about Michael and Zachary! Their place is lovely, and in a great neighborhood. The room was well appointed, and the instructions provided both before arriving and while staying were very in depth.

    The boys went out of their way to welcome me and make sure that my stay here was positive. I would thoroughly recommend staying here!

    February 2014
  • Stayed for more than 2 weeks. Awesome room and apartment + friendly and gracious hosts. Michael was very diligent about communication and kept us updated if anything came up.

    January 2014
  • We´ve stayed at Michael and Zachary house for ten days and it was great. The house is very cozy and the room is perfect. They are very nice and friendly, always ready to help. And Diddy, their dog, is amazing!
    The location is very good, less than ten minutes to the T Station and Jamaica Plain is a great neighborhood. We will definitely stay with them again!

  • Overall an amazing stay in Boston! Michael and Zachary were very hospitable and made sure we had anything we needed. We had a private bathroom and the room was lovely and bed was quite comfortable. The location was good too- very close to the T station and a nice restaurant and cafe although a little quiter than staying in the city which we liked. Thanks Michael and Zachary!

Hi, I'm Michael. I'm a young professional in the wonderful city of Boston. I currently work in audio production for a premier post-production facility downtown. I live in Jamaica Plain with my partner, Zachary, who is a Behavior Analyst (BCBA) for the Boston Public Schools System. We have a dog named Sir Didymus the Brave (think of the movie, Labyrinth), and he's truly a joy to us both. We both have busy lives, but we always find time to have a well-rounded social life. We're big foodies, so we're constantly checking out new restaurants and we love to travel, which opened our eyes to AirBnB! During our travels, we enjoy going to music festivals, concerts, musicals, and plays. When we're not traveling, you'll find us catching up with friends or just quietly enjoying an evening at home. We enjoy the life that we've built together and our goal is to live it to the fullest.
