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.

Thomas is an amazing host! The apartment is cute, Wonder the dog is sweet, and Thomas went out of his way to always make me feel welcomed. I woke up every morning with coffee and freshly made pastries (his chocolate chip banana nut bread is bomb!). And can we talk about that bed? I slept so great the whole trip! The neighborhood is nice and super diverse. I loved being away from downtown Boston as it made me really explore a bit more. I would highly recommend this airbnb experience. I felt it was super affordable, comfortable, and Thomas felt like a friend more than just a "host." Thank you!

Tom’s a very friendly and nice host. The accommodations were good, I loved the king sized bed! What I really liked about the stay was that Tom was super communicative during my initial inquiry and during the day of my arrival, making sure I could get in while he was at work. This was a business trip for me and I needed to get online, Tom ensured that I could do so without a problem. I really like that he made me feel welcome and at home. He made sure I felt comfortable with the temperature (I was nice and warm! :D) and I like that I was able to feel comfortable enough to relax in the living room in the evening with the company of his elderly and tranquil dog Wonder.

This was definitely an awesome first experience as a guest on Airbnb! My dad always told me that all you needed while away from home was a good bed and a good shower, but these days I guess we may add "a great host" to that list. The house is well located in a quiet neighborhood. Comfy king size bed a plus! Easy walk to the T (but you may also Uberpool tô downtown for less than $10). Great conversations over breakfast! Great tips on where to go in Cambridge! Thanks again Thomas for a great weekend in Dorchester!

Tom was incredibly responsive, both before and during our stay. He gave us great advice regarding best local restaurants and sites to see. We were visiting our daughter for NU Parent's Weekend with a busy, short schedule and were grateful for the evening respite at Tom's beautiful place. Tom always had delicious hot coffee and yummy homemade baked goods waiting for us. Will definitely try booking again when in the Boston area.

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!
