Elegant urban art-filled Victorian

House - Entire home/apt · Mayfair St, Boston, MA 02119, United States

The Space

Beautiful, sunny two-floor apartment in a Victorian two-flat, with four bedrooms, period detail, cozy furnishings. On a tree-lined, dead end street in historic urban neighborhood, 12 minute walk to Orange line or Silver line T, and 30 minutes door-to-door to most downtown locations. Off-street parking, huge public swimming pool across the street. Wifi, apple TV, free laundry room, 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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood (email hidden)ly 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.

Getting around

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved our stay in Boston and the accommodation was fab! We were close to all we needed, close to town and easy access to freeways. We felt very safe warm and comfortable! Thank you!

  • Great place, we had a group of 7 and had no problems with beds or parking spaces for 3 cars. Spacious kitchen. Renter was very flexible with some of our late changing requirements coming in. Only downside is the one bathroom required some coordination in the morning. This was our second time staying here and would be happy to do so again!

  • Kate's home is charming, inviting, and just in general quite lovely. Kate was very communicative and available if we needed anything. Staying at her home makes you want to be part of her beautiful family! Great space for many people to sleep comfortably.

    February 2014
  • Our family thoroughly enjoyed the week spent in Kate's home.
    Everything was clean, organized and ready for us. Kate left great directions. I recommend following her directions for dealing with her cats.
    We were able to make great breakfasts in the nice kitchen. We had plenty of space for everyone to have their own bedroom, while also having rooms to gather in for meals and conversation.
    It was a great place for our family to get together from several different states and spend Christmas.

    December 2013

    October 2013

    Thanks Kate!

    September 2013
  • We spent some great nights at this real Bostonian home of Kate. I even liked the squeaking wooden floors. We had free access to the washer and dryer which was a great help for us. I read other reviews, some said that the neighborhood did not appeal them and they used taxi to get home at nights, but we did not have bad feeling and used the T (metro) after dark. Respect the guidelines about the cats! Moth is a REAL one, you don't want to cross his ways :DDD Kate was very quite and discrete (sorry Kate, those days we were not in a socializing mood! :)) She provided us with essentials in the fridge which was really nice. Thanks Kate!

  • Belle première expérience avec Airbnb! Kate sait se montrer discrète! Endroit idéal lorsque vous voyagez avec votre voiture et que vous ne voulez pas payer trop cher pour un (email hidden)tit bémol, loin du centre-ville de Boston, mais pour le prix, ça vaut la peine!
