This is my first solo airbnb stay, and Steven set the bar high for the next ones. I appreciate the responsiveness from the first inquiry and throughout my entire stay. He was so nice to accommodate my questions and requests, which was helpful for someone as unfamiliar with the city as I was. The apartment was clean, conveniently equipped and well-kept. There were no issues that came up during my stay. One of my worries when I was deciding to book the apartment was the safety around this part of Dorchester ... I'm happy to report that I had none of the expected encounters people warned me about, even on my late-night walks from evening classes. Of course, it helps to be extra vigilant. Overall, I received a warm welcome in a conveniently located home. I would gladly recommend Steven's place to others.

Prime location. Walkable distance to subway station that leads straight to the heart of Boston. Steven's a nice good guy too. Will help you when you need him.

The place is exactly as shown in the pictures. In addition, Steven is a great host. Very responsive and ready to help. The neighbor is quiet and there is parking available right in front of the house. Very good value for money.

Steven was a splendid and accommodating host who did his finest in meeting my arguably demanding needs. Throughout our stay, he would constantly make an effort to check up on my mum and I - in order to see whether we feel comfortable or not. As for his home, it was simply terrific. Location wise, it was a mere 5 minutes walk from the subway station. The neighborhood was calm, and quiet, and felt relatively safe. The room itself was quite spacious, and the availability of an air con ensured that my mom and I wouldn't "melt" from the summer heat. Overall, I would Steven a full 5/5 for his hosting!

We spent a great time in Boston and in Stevens apartment. He was travelling by himself, but even though kept in touch with us to answer questions and to make sure that everything is alright The apartment looked exactly as on the pictures, was very clean and there was everything you needed. We also used the washing machine in the basement which was great so we did not have to search for a laundry. I would stay at Stevens House again!

Although it was my first experience with Airbnb, I really enjoyed my stay at Steven's place. He is such a great, polite and welcoming guy. His place was so clean and about 5 min walk from Subway (red line). It was an awesome experience! Thank you Steven!

It was a really great stay. Steven is very nice and he was patient to talk with my dad who only understands very little English. Room is very clean and We had full access to kitchen. Location of this apartment is great. It is very close to red line, so it is really very convenient to go to downtown. Overall, it is strongly recommended for a wonderful stay in Boston.

Steven User Profile

Hungry to explore the world, meet people, make friends. I've been to 18 countries and lately going solo, which I've come to enjoy.

As a guest, I'm quiet, clean and respectful of any space I'm in. I don't smoke, I like to cook and I don't watch TV. What I do need are a space that is clean and reasonably quiet, close to public transportation and with reliable Wi-Fi.

I enjoy hosting more than I even imagined. I love meeting travelers from around the world, exchanging world views and hopefully enhancing their journey as other hosts have enhanced mine.
