We can adjust our morning schedules for you, but usually have no problem with this.
Interaction with Guests
We are two busy guys who aren't around the apartment much, except for the weekends. But when we are home, we're happy to chat with guests and give orientation as needed. We also try to give guests privacy and autonomy while staying.
We do like to keep things nice and tidy which is good for you - the place is always clean and shiny. Of course we appreciate you helping us keep it that way.
When Yarick is around he can offer can offer you conversation and directions in Ukrainian, Russian, German, English and minimal Polish. If it's just me - you're stuck with English and horrible Spanish & Italian.
Just let us know if there's anything at all you need!
The South End is (in our opinion) the most beautiful neighborhood of Boston. The wobbly brick sidewalks and old-growth trees are as historic as it gets in the states. It's now a posh neighborhood with remnants of its gritty past still tucked away.
Easy access to all of Boston off the Orange Line train, and Silver Line and #1 Bus. Others as well, but those are the main ones in the area.
Also just a few blocks away is a Hubway station you can grab a shared bike from. I haven't tried it myself yet.
For an extra fee I can arrange to pick you up or drop you off at the airport, train, or bus station.
Other Things to Note
There's a nice little backyard shared between the 5 units. A nice hideaway to drink coffee in the morning or a nightcap at the end of the day. All the way down the stairs and out the back door that is past the laundry.
No shoes in the apartment, please, it helps us keep the wood floors clean.
Don't make a ruckus in the common spaces when coming and going from the apartment.
No smoking (anything) in the building.
Help yourself to the bar - and speak up if there's anything we can do to help.
Mike and Yarick were great hosts! Their place was exactly as described and the location was ideal--So convenient to great food, shopping and a quiet, safe neighborhood. I felt very welcomed and comfortable in their home!
Mike and Yaricks home was very nice and clean. Loved the location that it was in and very close to the T.
Nos sentimos como en casa, con total libertad para manejarnos. Nos cruzamos poco con mike y yarick. Sin embargo nos aconsejaron muy bien con lo que les consultamos. La ubicación es muy buena!!!
Mike and Yarick are really nice guys! mike picked us up from the airport and was really helpfull with our bags. The room was nice and clean, the bed is a little bit small, but it was oké. Nice neighbourhood and the T is a 5 min walk.
Great first air bnb experience. Good location, clean place, comfortable bed, friendly hosts , and seamless easy experience. Would definitely recommend.
Great experience. Unfortunately, we never even got to meet Mike or Yarick because we came home late and left early. But we felt very comfortable getting in and out and they made us feel welcome. There's a great late night pizza place around the corner that I highly recommend for pizza or sandwiches.
This is definetely the best place to stay in Boston! We initially felt at home thanks to our super nice hosts. Communication was great, everything went so smooth and easy, just perfect. Mike and his friend have made a small heaven to stay in - cute room, all super clean, best sleep in super comfy bed - just lovely. The neighborhood is awesome. We were the first time in Boston, arrived jet-lagged in the evening and thanks to our hosts initially felt at home. Thanks again for having us. You and your place were just awesome!
About the Host, Mike & Yarick
We're Mike and Yarick!
Thanks for considering our spare room, we've been hosts for a year now and are loving the experience of sharing our home and meeting interesting travelers. Both of us has lived in Boston for several years now, and we're very happy to call the South End our home. When we aren't hosting we love to travel, and when we're home we're usually trying all the best restaurants and looking for the fun things to do in Beantown.
We're pretty busy guys but we do our best to give our guests recommendations if they need them and will always be available through the airbnb messager if anything come ups or you just want some pointers when you're out.
