What a great place to stay in Boston!
A very cosy house in Jamaica Plain, near the subway (Orange Line T), clean and welcoming. The apartment is set in a very safe co-housing complex, which is ideal for relaxation not far from the city centre - easily accessible with the above mentioned 'T'. Roberto, an excellent host, will make you feel at home: a feeling that will accompany you for all your stay.
It was overall a wonderful experience and I'm sure I will stay there again during for a future trip to Boston.
I rented a room at Roberto's appartment for 8 weeks. Roberto really made me feel home. The appartment was perfectly located in Jamaica Plain; an artistic, multi-culti neighbourhood with a great atmosphere. I have always felt safe, even when walking outside during night time. The appartment is part of a community, with really nice, friendly and helpful people. I especially liked this social interaction, because I was staying at Roberto's place for a longer period of time. The room was neat and perfectly equiped with a comfortable bed, desk, chair and a big closset. The modern bathroom had to be shared with one other room mate, which was not a problem at all as the room mate was really neat as well.
So if you're looking for a neat room with a modern bathroom at a great location surrounded by friendly people for a great price, I would highly recommend Roberto's place.
Hi Agnes, thank you so much for your comments. Interaction between people is a two way road and you make all possible for a smooth and successful one. Its a pleasure to host a person highly educated, respectful and friendly like you.
Everybody will enjoy your presence and company for sure. Thank you for staying at my home.
I very much enjoyed my stay in this home. I wasn't able to meet Roberto as he was out of town, but the other folks staying there were welcoming and helpful. The flat was very comfortable and clean. There seemed to be ample parking on the street.
The neighborhood was artsy and unique, I always felt safe walking around at night.
I would definitely stay in this cozy room again when next I visit Boston.
The condo was really really amazing!!! Very clean bed room, beautiful living room and kitchen and everything I needed was there! This amazing location and house for 49/per night is really good deal!! I hope I will stay with him again sometime!
Roberto is really a nice person,I live here well with him and the house is very beautiful, convenient laundry room in the basement as well as the clean bathroom in the house. Highly recommend it for either short term travel or long term work or study guys in Boston.
My stay with Roberto was all that I could have hoped for and much more than I could have expected. Serene home, excellent host, comfortable accommodations and a fabulous neighborhood - all that and more. Roberto is a charming and interesting man who loves hosting and it shows. He was helpful with information, generous with invitations and relaxed about sharing his space. I felt very at home. This was my first experience with Air B&B but it won't be my last. I may never stay in a hotel again!

About the Host, Roberto
Uruguayan born, international by heart and settled in Boston since 84, Roberto was selected as Visual Artist "Best of Boston" (2011) by a popular magazine. Roberto has worked as a community artist all his professional life. His murals tell about culture and diversity in the streets of Boston.

We have lived here and during nine years at the JPCohousing/condominium in Boston. My two grown up children are away doing what they always liked to do in NY.
We have a 1K square foot condominium and 10K square fee Common House space with a huge kitchen, living, laundry, children playroom and rumpus room, elevator, etc. We love this place and our sunny three bedroom unit. We have a great and diverse community here of committed individuals who make this place unique, safe and very pleasant to live.
