A private two-bedroom condo on the main floor of a three-story building, located 7 minutes by foot from the Fields Corner Subway Station (Red Line), east of Dorchester Avenue, and 15 minutes by car to downtown Boston. Fast wifi, full use of a well-equipped kitchen, and street parking allowed. Coin-op laundry in common area basement. A playground and field are two minutes away.

The space

This is a simple and affordable private two bedroom apartment that can accommodate up to six people during your visit to Boston, six subway stops from the downtown. The interior has hardwood floors and crown moldings, and the kitchen is fully equipped. The common areas (yard, entryway) need some cosmetic work. In the summer of 2015 I had listed just one of the bedrooms on Airbnb, but it's now the whole apartment for rent.

Guest access

Feel free to use all appliances, utensils, flatware, and cookware, etc. Coin-op laundry is in the basement, 8 quarters per machine cycle. Note: the basement is old and unrenovated. The beds can fold into the wall and turn into a desk, but the mechanism could be damaged if you try without being familiar with it, so it would be best to keep them as beds (though if you need the desk feature for work, let me know, and I'll provide instructions).

Interaction with guests

My place is usually on Airbnb when I am in Africa or India for fieldwork, though sometimes I'll be in Boston. Consequently, it's very likely that we won't meet in person, but I like to maintain good contact with my guests by email. When I am not in town, my close friend Abigail manages the property and you will have her contact information in case there are on-site emergencies.

This is my primary residence, so I really appreciate it when guests let me know if there's anything that I can improve or a maintenance issue that needs attention.

Other things to note

As far as I understand, Boston's city bylaws don't allow Airbnb (you must be a certified bed and breakfast). If asked by neighbors, please just say you are Michael's friend staying over while he is traveling.

Would highly recommend. Being able to check in at 2pm and check out at 11am was a plus when choosing a place. Very thoughtful notes/recommendations and extras left around. Cool 24/7 bowling alley near by. Super comfy beds! Great host overall!

Michael's place is conveniently located to a T stop with a quick ride into downtown Boston. The place is huge in comparison to other two bedrooms I've stayed in. and everything needed is provided in the unit. The place is kept clean and feels very welcoming. Michael was very responsive to any questions.

Michael User ProfileMichael is a superhost.

I am a stereotypically friendly Canadian. At the moment I'm working on a PhD at MIT and am hoping to do something with my career that will help business and NGOs in developing countries operate more effectively. I love travelling to Latin America and have tried to go during the winter holidays to explore and study Spanish for the past few years. I've also spent time volunteering in Kenya through a non-profit that I was heavily involved with during college. Although I study engineering, my real interest is reducing poverty - I am passionate about social justice and this affects most things I do.

Some of my favorite things to do include hiking, snorkeling, buying fresh produce at farmers markets, and getting great deals on and at thrift stores. I also love to experiment with new food in the kitchen.
