There is a Whole Foods supermarket in Melrose that is 1.5 miles from the suite that has an entire isle of prepare foods including a salad bar, pizza, sushi, fresh prepared dinners and more.

While the suite is not completely fragrance free, we do wash all of our linens and towels with fragrance and dye free detergent and softener. We do use bleach but if you notify us at the time of booking, we can wash the linens and sanitize without bleach, fragrance or dyes. While this won't make the suite completely fragrance free, it will help a great deal. The complimentary bathroom amenities (shampoo, conditioner, etc are NOT fragrance-free).

10)Heating/Cooling - The heating thermostat is not located in your unit but we are happy to turn up the heat (within reason), Send a request via the Airbnb messaging system. There are extra blankets in most of the closets. In the winter, we heat the home at a temperature of 70 degrees during the day and 68 during the evening. During the warmer weather, the king bedroom and the daybed room have window air conditioner units put in once temperatures consistently are in the mid 70s or higher at night and removed once temperatures are consistently in the 60s or lower at night. The king bedroom and the kitchenette also have ceiling fans and a portable fan is located in the room with the daybed. When the Air Conditioner Unit is in the window in the bedroom, the only access to fresh air is via the fan on the AC unit. If you prefer not to have the AC in your room's window, please ask 2 days prior to arrival and we are happy to remove the units.

11) There are 2 cats and a quiet dog who live below the suite. The suite may not be suitable for people with pet allergies. I occasional foster dogs too.

10. Free parking for 1 car. If you need parking for 2 or more cars, please let us know in advance so that we can accommodate your parking needs. In the winter during a snow storm, the plow and shoveling occurs after the storm so if you need to leave prior to the storm ending, please contact us so that we can provide you with shovels and a place to park that is easier to exit from during a storm.

12. Host lives in the separate apartment below Airbnb Suite. Please use the Airbnb messaging app to communicate with host. Messages after 8 pm ET will be answered the next morning.

13. We change the batteries in our smoke detector every 6 months but if one goes off, we have batteries in the bottom drawer of the dark brown dresser in the kitchenette and a step ladder behind the white curtain on the front porch. We are happy to change it but if it's in the middle of the night we want to make sure you can take care of of the beeping. The smoke alarms are hard-wired with battery backup. The carbon monoxide detector is separate and plugged into the king bedroom outlet on the left.

14. The house is over 100 years old located in New England and while we work very hard to keep the suite clean it's possible during unusually warm weather in the winter and thaws and rain in the spring, a bug might sneak in. (IE: Spider,lady bug, ants or even a bee). None of these bugs are harmful and we are happy to remove them, vacuum and spray with non-toxic essential oils if something has snuck in. Also, because there are conservation lands at the top of our street, there is also wildlife such as coyotes, foxes, turkeys, skunks, ground hogs, fisher cats, deer, raccoons, squirrels, moles, and others. Most of these wildlife are never seen and they keep to the woods but an occasional spotting is possible.

15. We do not offer early drop off luggage or cars or late pickup. Access to the listing is only during your designated time that you are booked. You are responsible for bringing up your own luggage to the second floor.

16. Occasionally, the Owner or their designated representative(s), including housekeeper, caretaker, or repair person, may enter the property at any reasonable time for inspections, maintenance or repairs with a minimum of two (2) hours advance notice to Guest (from when a message is left via the Airbnb messaging system).

Where you’ll be

Melrose, Massachusetts, United States

Melrose is a small city 7 miles north of Boston filled with quaint Victorians and Colonials and a charming downtown filled with great restaurants (Seafood, Italian, Thai, Sushi, Mexican, and more) and unique non-chain stores.

At the top of our street is 225 ace park and golf course that abuts conservation land with hiking trails. You can see both the Boston Skyline and Revere beach at the top. I have marked out a nice trail with paint that is 1 1/2 miles if you walk from the suite and back.
