Everything good that's been said about Tony and Janet is true. That's why they are super hosts. People's reviews don't lie…
First, the house is absolutely beautiful. Tastefully decorated, very clean, comfortable, and in a quiet neighborhood. There is central a/c and Wi-Fi. For people wondering about stairs: the front door is just about 7 steps from the sidewalk (1st floor). Once you've entered, there are 12-ish steps to reach the 2nd floor (main areas of the house including kitchen). Then another set of 12-ish steps to reach your bedroom and bathroom (3rd floor). Your bedroom and bathroom are private, and they are right across the hallway from each other. In the bathroom, everything is provided: towels, hairdryer, shampoo...
Breakfast is also included in your stay. Rolled oats, cereals, English muffins (you can use the toaster), assorted jams, nut butters, honey, milk, yogurts, and fresh fruits are offered. Everything is placed in a corner of the kitchen countertop for your use.
Parking is free on the street. Right next to the house... Not miles away, don't worry. Tony and Janet will lend you a visitor's pass to park on the street (and not get a fine because it is reserved for residents during some hours).
If you are looking to live like a local, this is it, in the sense that you'll be living in the suburbs of downtown Boston in a quiet residential area… Just like many Bostonians.
The subway red line is a 7-10 mins walk. And then you are on the same line as Harvard Square, Central, MIT, and downtown Boston (Park Street station). Davis Square nearby the house is pretty and full of restaurants and shops as well.
Truth be told, this is the PERFECT place to stay at in Boston. Tony and Janet are super kind, lovely to talk to, very reachable and helpful.
Thank you very much! Everything was perfect - bedroom, bathroom, breakfast and location!
We feel form the first moment comfortble. Tony and Janet were very helpful. The breakfast,which you can do yourself, was great and delicious. They have tasteful furniture, nice bedroom and bath,very clean. The "T" isn't far away also possibilities for dining.
Janet and Tony are great hosts. Always helpful and approachable. Thank you for the trust and great tips. Each time love to go back.
