Room (325 sq ft/ 3 sq. meters) with a private entrance and small terrace in my apartment in the Back Bay on Beacon Street. Furnished with a queen size bed, a desk, chair, small bureau . Pillows, bed linen, towels and continental breakfast are provided.
The apartment itself is a first floor, 1125 sq. ft duplex down and has a nice view of the Charles River.

Lovely neighborhood, great walking on the Esplanade along the Charles River and beautiful restaurants and boutiques on Newbury Street.

James is kind, friendly and an all around great host. He makes a real effort to make you feel comfortable. The location in back bay is great--walking distance to fenway, hynes convention center and many great bars and restaurants. I definitely recommend staying here.
Great location - very nice area close to Charles River. James is absolutely a great host! Great conversation, helped in all possible ways to makes feel confortable. Truly a nice find.
I was in Boston for three days for a conference, on the other side of the Charles river from James' apartment. Outside of sleeping, I didn't spend much time in the apartment. The description of the accommodation is accurate. There's lots of closet space and lots of free clothes hangers. The room is tidy - if somewhat dusty in corners - and comfortable. I slept well. I found the bureau handy for writing a few emails at night, but consider asking about a more sturdy chair if you're planning to use it for any significant amount of time.
James is a friendly and authenticate raconteur. He knows Boston well, and was helpful about getting me oriented, not to mention that he leant me his Hubway pass (bike sharing) for the duration my stay. He is concerned that his guests should be comfortable.
I am a repeat visitor. Love the location, room clean, and host is charming.
Great location, great host. James was inviting and his home is in the best location possible. Enjoyed chatting with him and felt at home.
Very nice apartment on Beacon Street - right in the heart of old yet trendy Boston! The guest bedroom is in the basement with a couple of big windows looking at the street running along River Charles.
The reservation was canceled 27 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
James' home is an experience! I enjoyed it very much.
From the moment I entered his home i sensed culture all around me.
James is a very nice host, that made me feel very comfortable right away..
I also found a good agreement with James' 2 cats of where to meet. It's been a great holiday-stay, and staying at James' home can be highly recommended. Thank you James.
James' place has to be one of the best locations in Boston - right on the Charles River in the Back Bay, right across from my Alma Mater, MIT. Just a 5 min walk form the Hynes Convention Center - perfect for the conference I was speaking at. Every morning, I went for a run along the Charles down to the Esplanade. James was a gracious host, always up for an engaging conversation, and very generous. The room is spacious and clean, and I slept really well, despite the jetlag. James was very flexible around arrival & departure times - I left my bags there on the last day, and picked them up in the afternoon right before heading to the airport.
