Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Tia was the perfect host! Nothing to complain about it.
    I've stayed at her place for almost two months and she was always very helpful and nice. During the whole time, she ensured that everything on the house was clean, comfortable and working properly. She is also a very friendly person and I had a great time living at her place.

    My overall experience was excellent (so far the best one I've had on AirBnb) and I would definitely recommend her place!

  • I stayed with Tia for just under three months. I could not have wished for a more kind, thoughtful and generous host. She will regularly put your needs before her own in ensuring that you are comfortable. Whilst she is more than happy to talk with you, she is equally content to leave you be, should you wish.

    The house itself is very clean and tidy and the location ideal, with a large supermarket and a tram stop just a five minute walk away.

    I consider myself extremely lucky to have found Tia and to have spent my time in America with her and the other lovely flatmate that I shared the house with. We became friends during my time there and remain in contact.

    If you're willing to be clean and tidy, wash your dishes after use and can tolerate an occasionally over-zealous chiwawa, you won't find a better deal anywhere!

  • I have been working in Waltham and Tia's place was perfect for me. She was the perfect host and made me very comfortable from the minute I walked in the door. The room was perfect for my needs. I was expecting the room to be a little bit on the small side,a s I am 6ft3, but it was perfect. Bed was comfortable, a very comfortable computer desk with wifi included. ....Yep...I will definitely be returning to visit Tia very soon !

  • Tia was a very gracious host. Friendly and accommodating. She was quick to welcome me, offer guidance to nearby restaurants and T stops. Her place is on the first floor of a two family in Allston. The neighborhood is packed with college kids, grad students, and hipsters. I stayed on New Years Eve and the upstairs neighbors had a very loud party, nothing Tia could do about this of course. She did ask them to keep it down more than once, which was great. Again, New Years Eve College kids partying, what can you do about that? not much. All in all, a good experience and my first Air bnb experience. I would stay at Tia's again and recommend it to folks as well. Her dog is cool, very small and excited a lot. A cute dog. Her roommates were friendly and sociable. Great value for the money. Parking was key as well. I was able to park my car in the driveway of the house which made things very convenient.

  • Tia has been great and really hospitable! There is also a wide variety of good food in the Allston area.

  • i did not have a lot of time to stay in the room, yet the little time i had, i enjoyed. everything is as described. tia is very helpful and a great host. i can highly recommend it.

    December 2012
  • I stayed with Tia for just three nights and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. She is a more than friendly host and especially person, not to forget about her cute puppy. She made me feel at home immediately. Her place is maybe a 15-20 minute ride away from downtown, which is more than convenient with the public transportation. I didn't really discover the surrounding area but since it is very very close to the Boston university and from what I could see on my way back and forth I can only recommend the area; some nice restaurants and cafés seem to be around. All in all I can only recommend Tia's apartment!

    December 2012
  • I contacted Tia for a last-minute trip and she was able to set up the room for me. She was very nice and even checked me in at midnight and had candles and a fresh towel for me. Everything was clean and I had a quiet, comfortable sleep.

    Tia was an excellent host and the accommodations were great! Would definitely stay again!

  • I stayed with Tia for 1 month, and everything was perfect. Tia is an amazing host and made feel at home. She is very helpful, sweet and friendly. The place is awesome and the area is very nice, safe and in a great location. Her roommates are very friendly and fun. Since the first day I stayed there, Tia and her roommates treated me as a member of the “family”, inviting me to dinner/lunch, shopping, parties..etc. Tia is more than a host for me, she is now a friend, just like the others roommates and i hope to see them again. I highly recommend staying at Tia's place. She is the best host someone can have. :)

Hi! I am fun and outgoing, take things easy and very helpful. If you need anything, just ask. :) 5 things I cannot live without: + My perfume (Everything I own must smell nice) + Candles!!! + My cell phone (I communicate a lot!) + A cup of tea with honey (I drink at least 3 cups of tea per day) + A good movie (love Steven Spielberg movies) I am a clean and responsible person. My style of hosting is giving you lots of privacy and also embracing you as a friend, so please feel free to talk about life and whatever you want with me. I also like to go out with my guests (I have gone out to eat and shop with many of the guests, and we have formed friendships). Of course you don't have to go out with me, I respect your privacy. :) As a traveler, I will treat your home like it is my own. My life motto: Be young & have fun!
