Great base for exploring Boston, easy access to the T. Excellent Vietnamese food just a block away. Being near the police station meant super safe but also had siren noise, not bad but noticeable. But otherwise fun neighborhood; not too far from town, easy train ride. Also only a mile or so from a lovely walking along the water.

We stayed 7 nights to visit a conference in Boston. The house is spacious and had everything they needed. Very good WIFI. We rented bikes to visit Boston and to go to the Massachusetts Convention Center (20min). Thanks Hermina.

The house could really accommodate a lot of persons (we were a family of 10), and that made it so enjoyable !! We stayed there 4 nights. The neighbourhood is good, with lots of Vietnamese restaurants around, and supermarkets. Hermina, our host, was very nice to us, and discreet at the same time. I definitely recommend for large groups or families !!

My family stayed at Hermina's house and they thought it was fabulous! The house was clean, spacious and had everything they needed! Donna the caretaker/cleaner was there when they arrived and was SUPER nice! She really went out of her way, even helped us make coffee! The house was in a great location - near to the subway, there was a bar across the road (with fab food) and local stores and stuff nearby too.

We as a large family renting this property were quite disappointed with our accommodation on our trip to Boston. We were under the impression that the house had 4 beds as advertised but in fact there were only 3 proper beds the rest of the beds turned out to be mattresses on the floor. The area is quite run down and we were advised by a nearby pub that we shouldn't be out alone after dark. Downtown boston is around 20 mins on the train and the train station is a 5 min walk from the house. There is a supermarket & McDonald's nearby but not much else so we just used the house as a base but it was a pain getting back before dark every day. On the whole I think the house was overpriced and we would not return to this house although it may be suited to a smaller family/group.

Response from Hermina:
Sorry Lisa, but the area is safe to walk in dark, I hosed so many people, I don't like when people are prejudiced by the looks. I live in the area 15 years. And yes your group was really big for the house, unfortunately the second one was not available by the time you decision. I wish you were happier. Thank you so much

Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in oldest neighborhoods in Boston (Dorchester). The house is beautiful, big, clean and colors are my addition to its charm. I love colors you can see it in the pictures.
I love the idea of B&B and now I have chance to host people from the world in my own house. Traveling is part of my life and staying with family opens chance to meet local people.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
