Please eat and drink in the kitchen. No food is permitted in the guest rooms because of the potential for unwanted pests. Only bring water into the room.
Feel free to use all the kitchen tools you may find useful but please when you are done, wash it. The host of the house is happy to show you how to use it.
TOWELS, SHEETS AND PILLOWS
Upon your arrival you are given a couple of towels. Laundry service is not offered, there is a laundromat located close by within walking distance.
Sheets/Towels are cleaned and changed every week.
Please limit your shower to 15 mins (This rule is in effect because previous guest have taken 45 - 60 min showers (to soothe their stress) Not only are you depriving your fellow guest of hot water, but the hot water tank has to generate more hot water, water and electricity are costly expenses.
Due to the close proximity of the rooms the host ask that you refrain from showering between the hours of 12:00 AM and 5:00 AM
"If you sprinkle when you tinkle, please be neat and clean the seat" :-)

Nous avons été très bien accueillis. La chambre était parfaitement propre, elle correspond exactement à la description et aux photos présentées. Pour aller à Boston il faut prendre un bus et le métro, mais ça n'empêche pas de pouvoir facilement y arriver. Je conseillerais ce logement à toute personne voulant passer un agréable séjour près de Boston !
Fanny was a lovely host- extremely welcoming and helpful. The room was exactly as advertised.
La place était vraiment bien! Les photos sont très représentatives et l'endroit était bien propre. Madame Berkeley habite à une 15 de minutes en transport en commun du centre de la ville (ce fait très facilement) et il y a un stationnement disponible dans la rue même pour l'auto. De plus à une distance accessible d'un centre commerciale ou vous trouverez une épicerie! Il est facile de se rendre chez elle. Elle était bien accueillante et très ouverte!
Die Unterkunft war genau so wie beworben. Das gesamte Haus war sehr sauber. Die Handtücher sowie die Bettwäsche waren frisch. WLAN war uneingeschränkt nutzbar. Fanny ist eine sehr zuvorkommende und freundliche Gastgeberin. Die Lage der Wohnung ist in Ordnung. Es existieren mehrere Anschlüsse per Bus an den T-Stop Andrew Station der Red Line. Nach 10 Minuten Fußmarsch ist man an der Haltestelle "Uphams Corner" der Commuter Rail. In Summe ist man in circa 30 bis 40 Minuten in Boston Downtown. Das Viertel ist sowohl tagsüber als auch nachts ungefährlich. Ich würde jederzeit wieder in dieser Unterkunft hausen.
Fanny and her family made us feel most welcome. They are such lovely people. The bed was so comfortable, as was the room. It was easy to get to their home, using Uber/Taxi. I can only recommend this family and we will stay there again when we return to Boston.

About the Host, Kathe/Fanny/Candice
I work HARD and I enjoy life just as hard.
I enjoy traveling and have been to Canada, Spain, Gibraltar, Grenada, Puerto Rico, St. Marteen, Mexico and many parts of the USA. Places that I would like to visit someday are Australia, Germany, Ireland, London, China, and Japan just to name a few. Ultimately I would love to visit every part of the globe.
I joined airbnb to meet interesting people, so far I'm very impressed...Have hosted guests from all over the world since 2011...I look forward to meeting many more people from around the world.. I would love to learn a second language, so any help is appreciated :-)
I look forward to continue hosting and meeting many more people.
