  • This listing was just as described and more. The house is beautiful and the hosts (although we didn't get to meet face to face) were very helpful and kept in contact with us to see if we needed anything the whole weekend. My family was visiting the area for the first time loved it! We would definitely stay here again.

  • House was in great location with two branches of the green line within an easy walking distance. Plenty of places to grab a bite to eat in Washington Square which is a quick 5 minute walk from house. House is huge and easily fit my group of 5 adults and infant. Mark was a great host and checked in with me multiple times throughout my stay to make sure that everything was working out with the house and if there was anything he could do to improve our stay. Highly recommended.

  • Mark's home is very comfortable and full of character. It's spacious, with lots of different areas for our family to hangout and do things individually or together. I particularly loved the fireplace in the kitchen and the wonderful master bath. The location of this home is also very convenient and close to Boston. Mark is very responsive to questions or requests. The only issue we had was that the heating was uneven, cold on the ground floor but hot upstairs, probably a pretty typical thing for a large house in New England. Mark gave us some suggestions which helped. Our family had a wonderful time in this home over Christmas. We would highly recommend this place as a get-together for families.

  • Mark's house - and his communication and thoughtfulness - made it a perfect place for me and my family for the weekend. It was great to find such a spacious and well-appointed house located within an easy walk to stores, cafes, restaurants, etc. I recommend it highly for anyone seeking space, comfort, and convenience in the Boston area.

  • Beautiful house in brookline- like coming home. My friends stayed here over my wedding weekend in Chestnut Hill and loved it. There was more than enough space in the house for the two couples, comfortable beds, spacious kitchen and living area. Great location, near public transport. They all wished they could have stayed longer. Wonderful hosts, Mark arranged everything before hand, very easy and professional. It was my first experience using airbnb and it was definitely a five star experience.

  • Our stay in Mark's house exceeded all expectations. We stayed there for 7 nights. The house is very nice. The pictures resemble it perfectly. There was plenty of room for the six of us staying there. Many rooms to sit back and read a book. Big open kitchen. Very nice neighborhood, quite quiet. Being 5 minutes away from the T-Line was awesome. Great restaurants in the area. I highly recommend staying here if you have a chance.

  • Absolutely beautiful Brookline home in a fantastic neighborhood. It definitely exceeded our expectations. Mark's home was very close to public transportation. Also conveniently had a parking space. The kitchen was well equipped and the master bathroom was newly remodeled and lovely. Mark was extremely attentive. Called to check on us and emailed me several times to make sure everything was okay. Would definitely stay here again.

  • What a fantastic house and location! It's spacious and could accommodate a lot of people, but still manages to feel warm and intimate. A really nice atmosphere.

    And Mark was an excellent host, very organized and responsive.

    Before we arrived, Mark sent us a detailed packet of information about the house and the surrounding area. It was very helpful to have during the stay.

    It was a great experience for us - we'll definitely keep the house in mind for the future. Highly recommended!

  • This is a wonderful house for a large family gathering. We used it for five days in December, with family and friends coming and going and easily finding unique spaces for play and conversations. The kitchen is excellent; good beds in all the rooms; and the house is very close to great public transportation. We loved it. Hope we can get back to it again.
