House Rules
Check in is anytime after 5PM

COMMON SENSE
-----------------
Common sense is the greatest rule :-) We all have it, so lets try to utilize it.

FOOD AND DRINK
----------------------
Kitchen is user friendly. Please clean up after yourself.

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.

BATHROOMS
--------------------
Please limit your shower to 15 mins (This rule is in effect because previous guest have taken 20 - 30 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" :-)

AC and HEATING
---------------------

It was our first Airbnb-experience and it was great. Fanny was so nice and gave us a very warm welcome. She gave us helpful advices e.g. to take the bus/tram to Downtown. We felt comfortable at her home. All was clean and we had enough space to live. There was a kitchen for use, but we only needed the fridge. We recommend to take the bus/tram even if you arrive with a car. It took not much longer (30-40 minutes in total) and is much cheaper. Thanks again for hosting, Fanny! Tania & Anja

Fanny made us feel very welcome upon arrival. The room and space is just as described in the listing. The neighborhood is a little far out from Boston proper, a car is definitely necessary. There is another person who lives in the mother-in-law full time, she is very nice and friendly and was a great resource, as I was new to Boston.

The place is nice with all the amenities. It felt like home for us. It only takes a few minutes to walk to bus # 16 and transfer to red line to go to downtown Boston. Vietnamese restaurants and grocery stores are within walking distance. Fanny was always helpful and provides us what we need!

Very nice place with a wonderful host, who took very good care of us. The room was clean and exactly as the pictures and description. With public transportation just around the corner, it was easy to get around Boston.

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.
