A great cozy house. Thank you for the hospitality!
Had most of the house to myself! There was a big snow storm and it was really warm and cozy. Donna shoveled the steps and checked in with me. It is nice to come and go as please. Beds comfy and Hermina is always quick to respond to my emails!
I spent four days in Hermina's home (one of the apartments attached) while in Boston for the first time. It was such an easy commute into and through Boston. I kept mostly to my room when home in the evenings, but there was space to lounge, a spacious kitchen, and dining table. This was my first airbnb experience and I feel confident I will continue to utilize this site. Thank you, Hermina!
Stayed two nights. Very clean. Had a small but cozy room. Great to park free on the street. The others in the home were very quiet. I would definitely stay again!

Hermina was in Europe while I stayed at her house. The accomodations were cozy and inviting. The transportation to Boston was a very short walk away. Her kitchen had all the necessary items to prepare meals. The other guests were friendly. Donna was about keeping order and maintaining the space. I have no problem recommending this to the cost conscious traveler.
The supermarket and other stores were a stone throw away. The police abutting off the back fence lent an air of security.and additional safety. Chinese takeouts were plentiful and there's a MacDonalds close by( if you are so inclined). Had a scotch in the Blarney Stone-nice place.
The red line runs to South Station, Downtown Crossing and Park Street. It then continues on to MIT and then to Harvard Square. The Rose Kennedy Greenbelt conecting Chinatown to the Northend is easily accessible from the red line; as is the Faneuil Hall Market Place. I skipped the Harbor Walk this trip to Boston; it was the middle of the winter and those breezes sweeping the docks can be chilling.
Make the switch to the Green Line and in a few stops you are in the Copley Square area; browse down Newbury Street and stroll the upscale Copley Mall on the backside of the Prudential Tower. While you there snap a few shots of Trinity Church; needless to say they don't build them like that anymore.
Hermina's digs unlock the keys to the internationally renowned City of Boston-bring your favorite walking shoes to discover the educational institutions and medical facilities.
Traffic there is very convenient.
