Large back yard and full length porch in the back is great for relaxing and squirrel watching.

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
In order to get preapproved, please have a profile picture and an official ID verification on file with Airbnb.
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:
