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.
Fantastic stay in a beautiful area! Myself and my partner we're stoked we chose Mike and Yarick's place - it was cozy, comfortable, clean and close to some really cute restaurants and literally a 1 minute walk to the T bus which takes you straight to downtown. My partner and I enjoyed the walk instead - from the apartment to downtown was only 25 Mins, same distance to Fenway park - the walk was enjoyable. The area felt safe and is also 5 minutes from Walgreens (groceries etc) and a chemists. Would definitely recommend this place.
Great space in a great location. Communication with our hosts could not have been more clear or helpful. Thanks for a great stay!
A cute, cozy space made comfortable by two warm, gracious hosts. Mike and Yarick were respectful and helpful, and we really enjoyed the location. Beautiful streets and abundant eating options around.
Thank you Mike and Yarick. The place was very clean, well located, and met expectations. Feedback and communication was pretty constant.
This is a great find in a great area. The place is clean, comfortable, the room is nice, wifi is great, overall very convenient & a tremendous value. Mike & Yarick are extremely accommodating & responsive. They were flexible with me on a last minute booking & a late arrival. I will definitely seek this place out on my nxt stop in Boston.
Mike and Yaricks place was comfortable and convenient. I didn't get to meet them because our schedules didn't align but they were communicator and accommodating and the whole process was pretty seamless. I would stay there again.
Provided a towel and small bottles of toiletries in the room. They were friendly when they were around & invited me to sit with them for dinner (I had already eaten and was headed out the door so did not but super friendly). The room had the wifi password out when I got in, neat & tidy, a fan was provided. No AC in the room, so a bit hot my first night (high of 90 that day - not super common). Overall felt very welcome & a great place to stay.

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.
