Private bedroom with Queen size bed, kitchen privledges available for temporary stay. Located in a brick two-family home on Boston harbor, this house has spectacular views of the ocean, airport and Boston skyline. Safe neighborhood, convenient to blue line, shops, restaurants and beach. Across from airport, parking available. We accept pets.
Ended up not staying for too long but the house was very neat. They had some simple foods laid out the kitchen very nicely and some towels in the room along with the WiFi and what not. The location is spectacular with a waterfront view and pretty neat look at the airport. Overall, I'd definitely recommend someone staying as they replied extremely quickly and were very helpful!
This was my first visit to Boston and being at Jim & Afiyah's place made the visit memorable. The accommodations were nice and my expectations were more than met. Towels were placed in the room and the kitchen table was set up for a "Continental" type breakfast. Communication with Jim was easy even through a change in my arrival time. I hopefully will visit Boston again and wouldn't hesitate having Jim & Afiyah as hosts.
A short walk - a couple blocks - from the train stop, so a good location especially for being so close to the airport stop. The house itself is pretty cool with a lot of character in it. Very interesting decorations that we enjoyed looking at. We stayed in the first bedroom past the front entryway and the bed was amazing. Way more comfortable than most hotel beds.
The breakfast food they put out was really nice too and much appreciated!
As others have said you don't have a key for your room and the house is unlocked, but we felt safe and didn't worry about our possessions. Seems like a perfectly safe neighborhood.
I saw Jim for about 20 seconds in person, but over email he was extremely helpful in his communication.
The only downside is the bathroom does not have a lock. There are other guests who stay here so just be careful that no one's in the bathroom. Otherwise, this is a great place to stay.
Although I only got to see Jim briefly, he was very kind and helpful. My bed was very comfortable with nice quality linens. His place is in a great location, only 2 stops from the airport on the blue line. The neighborhood is safe, and it is nice to be right on the water. Breakfast is available anytime, which was a bonus.
The only concerns I had were that the bedroom door didn't lock (that I could see), and the front door was left unlocked, as Jim has his home business upstairs. This may be a concern if you have a lot of valuables, which I did not.
Jim and Afiyah's house was very nice and spacious. There were 2 other guests at the house.
I did not get to meet Jim and Afiyah. They were not home when we stayed but we were able to communicate via phone.
This was a good experience.
Hosts were very quick to respond and everything was as it said in the write-up.
Teriffic location, nice house with lots of space for guests.
Easy 7-10 minute walk to "T" subway station - which 1s 15 mins from downtown.
