Beautiful, sunny two-floor apartment in a Victorian two-flat, with four bedrooms, period details, and cozy furnishings. On a tree-lined, dead end street in an historic urban neighborhood. 12 minute walk to Orange line or Silver line T, 30 minutes door-to-door to most downtown locations. Off-street parking, huge public pool across the street. Wifi, apple TV, free laundry, and a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances.
When my daughters and I are not here, there are four bedrooms available plus a pull out couch in a separate room, house can sleep ten people. When I am here without my daughters (about half the time), I have three rooms available to sleep up to six people. I do not have a separate rate for one room or the full house; the rate is based on the number of guests.
Guests will have full access to house, kitchen, porch and yard.
Interaction with Guests
I can host guests when I am away, or when I'm here but my daughters are not. If you stay when I'm here, I will generally be working in my studio or out. I'm happy to provide tips and help if you would like, and if you would prefer to be left alone I can do that too! I am very easy-going, discreet and respectful.
My neighborhood is lively and urban, yet surrounded by parks. My block has old brick sidewalks, Victorian houses, and friendly neighbors. If you're into basketball, tennis or swimming, they're all happening at the park across the street. Quick drive or 20 minute walk to two different neighborhoods with great shopping and cafés.
The Orange Line T (Jackson Square) is about a ten minute walk.
Other Things to Note
Because of the park across the street, in the summer the house can be noisy! But air-conditioners in all the bedrooms provide white noise.
There are real beds for eight, one pull out couch, and two single mattresses available. Linens, sheets, towels, kitchen staples, breakfast foods, and basic toiletries provided. Games, toys and books are here for your use, make themselves at home. Please leave the house in the condition that you found it. This unit is on the second and third floors of a two-family I own, and I have tenants below. Please be respectful of them, and my neighbors, and keep noise to a minimum after 11pm and before 7am. Thank you!
Kate est une hôte exceptionnelle. Malgré son absence, elle a répondu à toutes nos questions et donné de très bons conseils pour notre séjour.
Ses deux chats sont agréables et de vraies patapoufs.
Sa maison est décorée avec énormément de goût et très agréable à vivre en famille. La cuisine et les salles de bains sont très propres et totalement équipées. Les chambres sont spacieuses et les lits de bonne tenue.
Le quartier de Roxbury est difficile à définir. Quartier Black, avec voitures de luxe et certaines maisons délabrées. Quartier vivant avec match de basket le soir mais aussi courses de motos sur Martin Luther King bvd. Nous avions une voiture ce qui facilitait beaucoup de déplacement vers le centre (15 min).
Encore merci à Kate pour ce séjour. Nous espérons vivement la rencontrer lors de notre prochain séjour à Boston.
Kate was à charming host. The house was very clean, with comfortable beds and a well equiped kitchen. About 12 minutes walk from the T, the location is perfect to get anywhere in the city. We would gladly come back on a future visite to Boston.
We had a great stay at Kate's place . Very convenient location , the T into the city is real easy . Lots of fruit and breakfast available . Kate is a very nice person . Great stay overall .
We fell in love with Kate's Victorian, and this little corner of Boston that's off the beaten path but easily accessible from the city center.
Kate's home is incredibly cozy, well-maintained and clean. It's also extremely practical – with plenty of space for kids and a well-equipped and spacious kitchen and balcony.
The place is very well-decorated and furnished – one of those places that feels so comfortable you don't want to leave.
Kate is the ideal host. Attentive, available and extremely friendly.
Kate was so wonderful and her home was so warm and inviting. She had everything my party of 8 needed and she went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Her cats were friendly. Her house was so clean. Plenty of towels available, full kitchen, and plenty of space to hangout with your party.
Thank you Kate for a wonderful experience!!!!
The house is just as great it is it in the photos. Kate left a very welcoming and clearly outlined note for us. Everything was clean, the cats were also very very friendly. The neighborhood was pleasant and quiet. Definitely a great spot to spend your trip to Boston, it's conveniently located and easy to get around. The house is very charming and the kitchen is beautiful.
We felt very welcome and comfortable in Kate's classy and cozy home! There was food in the fridge and even a delicious walnut-cranberry bread waiting for us just like two very cuddly cats. Although we couldn't make it home early every night, Kate was an incredible host with some great advices for nice places in Boston!
