please keep place clean. clean any dishes you might use. I prefer that my guests not bring any extra guests that are not on the reservation into the house unless otherwise discussed with me before hand. Thank you.
My dog Wonder is very friendly and gets along well with people and other animals. Unfortunately though, I can not accommodate other pets at the moment.

Tom’s place is amazing; conveniently close to the subway so can get into town quite quickly. His home itself is very homey and located in a nice, quiet area with extremely friendly neighbors. Tom was great about sending us directions and had tips on where to eat and what to do, which were very helpful since it was our first trip to Boston. He went out of his way to have coffee and fruit out for us for breakfast, which was so nice and thoughtful. Also, his dog Wonder is just the sweetest little thing and is a wonderful girl, she definitely made our stay even better. We would definitely stay here again!

I had a lovely stay with Thomas and Wonder. Both are wonderful hosts! Thomas made it easy for me to find his charming home. He was always communicative and easy to chat with, but also gave me my space. My room was spacious with a large bed with nice sheets and cozy comforter and lots of pillows. The bathroom was clean and there were plenty of towels. The coffee and bread/fruit in the mornings was nice. I would definitely stay again.

Thomas' home was cozy and the private room was inviting. The host was kind and engaged me at the level of interaction I desired and kindly left out breakfast items for me which met my dietary restrictions. The bed was comfortable. I would definitely book again with Thomas.

Response from Thomas:
Thank you Nicole ! It was a pleasure having you! ( I apologize for Wonder's begging. I don't feed her and I continue to tell my friends and guests not to give in to her either. Unfortunately, It's a behavior I can't seem to fix. And she's 16 yrs old, so I don't think she'll stop. But, I do sincerely apologize.

Perfect quiet spot for staying in Boston. Subway station was conveniently close. Thomas is a great host who takes a genuine interest in his guests, though he's had many.

Staying at Thomas' place was a delight. Not only was he incredibly accommodating and prompt to ensure I had what I need for my stay, he was incredibly communicative and responsive prior to my arrival. When I arrived, he made me feel at home, and guided me in finding my way around town. The room and bed are incredibly comfortable, and he has a wonderful pup named Wonder that will light up your trip. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Boston.

Hi, How do describe myself: Hmm.. single, white gay male. 56 yrs old; non smoker. Live by myself with my 15 yr old Australian Cattle dog, " Wonder", In a great two bedroom Condo in Dorchester, a neighborhood in Boston. Love to hike,bike,kayak, camp,garden, cook, go to concerts, dance and travel. Pretty active.
I have an extra room and heard that AirBNB is a great way to travel and host other travelers. I'm a pretty social guy, so I figured that this is pretty awesome.
I'm known as a really happy positive guy. I love meeting new people. Paris, Portland, OR , San Francisco, and Vancouver are some of my favorite places. Italy and Ireland are pretty amazing also. But I can actually pretty happy almost anywhere. I just enjoy being active.
Not really sure what else to say, but hope to meet some of you along your travels!
Update: Update:4/27/17. Into my my 5th "season" of hosting and really looking for ward to it. I have met some pretty amazing people from all over the world. Some I am glad to call my friends now; thanks to Face Book ! Its been a great experience and so happy that I have the opportunity to do this .
Looking forward to hosting you!
