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" :-)

We had a very comfortable stay. We only saw Candice the day we arrived. She welcomed us very kindly and showed us the way. The place, however, was far from the city centre and public transportation will take you over an hour to get downtown. We took the cab, which was about 20 minutes and under 20 dollars per ride. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and the bed was really comfortable. Some of the Bostonians we met told us that the neighbourhood was not too safe. We didn't notice any of this but it might be something to consider. In conclusion, the house was perfect but the location was a little bit too far from the city centre.
We were welcomed in their home. The bedroom was clean and spacious. They were nice and friendly. They drove us to a supermarket. It is a little far of downtown: we need to take a bus and a subway (20min).
Fanny and Candice were very very nice and welcoming, their house too. The room was exactly as on the pictures, very clean and nice. The bathroom was clean and also looked like the pictures. Nevertheless, if you don't have any car, prepare yourself to wait for the bus for such a long time, and to go Andrew station ( Red line to join the center of the city) walking ( 30 min). Another thing is the location of the nearest grocery ( stop &shop) which is also 30 min walking ( quite fast).Also the house is located in the suburb of Boston, what we had not understood and the surroundings is quite poor but safe. Anyway, Fanny is a wonderful woman, it was a real pleasure to talk with her, also she gave us very good advice and let us free to do whatever we wanted into the apartment and she really made us feel home and comfortable !
Fanny hat uns von Anfang an willkommen geheißen. Wir haben in der Unterkunft alles vorgefunden, was wir benötigt haben. Küche und Kühlschrank durften wir mitbenutzen. Schlafzimmer, Küche und Bad waren sehr sauber.
Very comfortable and clean bedroom in nice neighbourhood with good transport links to the city. Our host had no problems answering any questions we had and it was a very pleasant first airbnb experience.

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.
