About this listing
A beautiful house from 1920 in a very nice neighborhood, powered by solar electricity.
You will find yourself comfortable in our wonderful basement apartment which features a lovely bedroom (queen bed), living room, and bathroom with shower. The bedroom has an entrance from the back yard so you can come and go as you wish. We have a spare twin mattress which can be put on the floor for guests who do not want to share the queen bed.
From the bedroom, you can walk outside and enjoy our beautiful back yard. The bathroom with shower is accessed directly from the living room. There is also a laundry room in the basement which you are welcome to share with us. In the laundry room there is also a refrigerator and microwave for your use. Please note that we occasionally walk through the living room to access the laundry room.
Our 1920 home was recently completely restored including the basement which is cozy, comfortable and cool (especially in the summer months). We are powered by solar energy from panels on the roof so you can feel extra green when staying with us.
We are a two minute walk away from Porter Square and the Red Line T (subway) which takes you to downtown Boston in less than 20 minutes. Harvard Square is about 20 minutes away walking or one stop on the T. Davis Square is about 10 minutes away walking or one stop on the T. Porter Square has a shopping area with a grocery store open 24/7, coffee shop, book store, restaurants etc. You can't find a more convenient location than this. We have guest parking permits for street parking in case you plan to arrive by car.
With the private entrance you will get the feeling of an apartment rather than a private room. We welcome international guests. Besides English, we speak Swedish, Danish and Chinese.
Interaction with Guests
We are a family of four living in the house and we enjoy meeting new people, in particular our children Albin 3 years old and Linnea 5 years old.
Porter Square Red Line subway stations is only a few minutes away.
We'd be really happy if you take off your shoes and leave them on the shoe plate inside the door. We like to keep our house clean and that is a lot easier when everyone takes off their shoes.
