Interaction with Guests
I live in one of the bedrooms. I either work from home or the road. I like to travel and always enjoy meeting fellow travelers. If I'm home I am happy to talk, give you advice or help you with your itinerary.
There are 2 bedrooms listed here so you may also interact with another guest if the other room is booked.
I can pick you up and drop you off the airport, train or bus station for $30 each way if I'm available. A cab ride from the airport costs about $45. Please let me know a few days before arrival if you would like personal pick up.
Ashmont T station on the Red Line is a 5 minute walk from the house.
If you're driving, we're close to I-93.
Ample street parking.
Coming from Logan Airport:
Public transit from the airport to Ashmont station is free. Take the Silver Line bus to South Station.
At South Station, take the Ashmont train
Exit at the end of the line (Ashmont), which is 6 stops.
As you exit the station, look for Dunkin Donuts across the street. Walk up the street beside it (Bailey Street). The house will be on your left near the top of the hill.
If you need a taxi at any time, I can arrange one for you with a very reliable driver I have been working with for years. He is a licensed taxi driver and uses a city meter at the regular city rate. If you've ever tried to call a taxi in Boston, you'll know they are notoriously unreliable.
Other Things to Note

The house is on a hilly road, offset from the road by steps and the apartment is on the 3rd floor. Please keep this in mind if you are uncomfortable carrying luggage up stairs, especially if you're walking from the subway station. If I'm home when you arrive, I will help you with your luggage.
I can get you tickets to any event directly, even for sold out shows. Ask me if you need any. My friend owns a ticket business.
I support the environment. Here are some ways in which you will too by staying here:
- Recycled toilet paper
- No antibacterial soaps
- No toxic cleaners
- Bedding and towels are air dried
Please take your shoes off before entering the apartment.
I don't charge for cleaning or extra people. Kindly return the favor by keeping the place clean. :)
No smoking or dogs please.
Steven war ein sehr guter Gastgeber. Für meinen Geschmack hat er die richtige Mischung aus Zurückhaltung und Entgegenkommen geleistet. Er hat mir hilfreiche Tipps für Boston geben können und stand auch sonst für Fragen bereit. Zimmer und Wohnung waren sauber, die große Küche konnte ich mit benutzen und das Zentrum ist mit der RedLine in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen.
We stayed in Steven's place for more than 2 months, and it was a great place to be in Boston. His apartment is beautiful and clean, and is just a 5 min walk to the red line. This line is great to connect many places in Boston. Concerning Steven, he is a great host! He answered all our questions and helped us when we needed it. We recommend this place indeed!
The room was very comfortable, very closed to the red line. Only 5 minutes from the station. Just 20 mn to Boston downtown ! We didn't see Steven very often but he was very welcoming and very accomodating. We could use the kitchen, the room was comfortable. The apartment was recently renovated and very nice. We could park off street. I really enjoy my stay.
Stevens place was brilliant, highly recommend to stay in this place! Great location to t train only 20 mins into city centre. Dunkin donuts just at end of street :) will definitely stay again
Steven was such a great host. The apartment was clean and the room was comfortable and quiet. The pictures and description of the apartment were very accurate. Having Steven as a host comes with high recommendations! We would definitely - without a doubt - stay there again!
I stayed with Steven for an extended period of 4 months in the fall of 2014. He is a great host and has been incredibly accommodating. He was also very quiet such that sometimes I wasn't sure whether he was home. He signed for my packages and even helped me find a reliable taxi for my early morning ride to the airport. I would highly recommend staying at his place when visiting Boston. For me this has been a great experience.
The apartment itself was clean and specious within close proximity to the Ashmont station. I had to ride the train to Cambridge every day and it took about half an hour from this station. This is a residential neighborhood. I understand that parts of this neighborhood can be sketchy at night sometimes but I never had any problems. There are several convenience stores and a few nice restaurants nearby.
The information given in the listing is accurate. The apartment has a large balcony to get some air and the washer/dryer in the basement. Although all three apartments in the building use the same machines, they always seemed to be available whenever I needed them.
Steven was a great host! I reserved the room the day before and he was able to accommodate my request and stayed up to welcome me and provide me keys to the apartment although my flight came in after midnight.

About the Host, Steven
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 if I have time 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.
