Your own floor, own entrance, own private bathroom. Washer/dryer in unit. Red Line Ashmont subway station.
3 level, new & modern townhouse in Boston's Adam's Village neighborhood, on Red Line subway.
There are 2 bedrooms available on their own floor, along with your own bathroom. The bedrooms can be accessed through the main townhouse entrance and they also have their own private entrance from the backyard.
The 2200 square foot (200 square meters) townhouse is on 3 floors. The 2 bedrooms available are on lower level which you can get to through the main entrance or from the backyard. You have your own private half bath half flight up. There are an additional 2 full baths on the top level. One of these is in my master bedroom, and the other is for your use.
So...in summary...you get 2 adjacent bedrooms on the 1st level, exclusive use of half bath (between Level 1 & 2), and complete use of full bathroom on Level 3.
Given that the townhouse has 2200 square feet (205 sq meters), and is on 3 levels, it is quite comfortable and spacious for guests, as well as offering a great deal of privacy with multiple rooms and your own bathrooms. And you have your own entrance should you choose not to use the main house entrance. Your bedrooms are on Level 1; mine are on Level 3. On Level 2 (the main floor) is the open kitchen/living room/dining room. Guests have reasonable access to the kitchen and occasional use of the living room. The bedrooms are quite large and have queen beds, dressers, desks, shelves, end tables, and hi def TVs with cable (including on-demand), and WiFi.
I am on the 3rd level, with my bedroom, my spare rooms, and 1 additional spare bedroom (should the needs of your party require a 3rd bedroom).
Being on the Red Line subway makes most of Boston & Cambridge very easy to get to...(Shawmut and Ashmont stations are the stations near me, both equidistant). The Red Line has frequent service, and downtown Boston is 15 to 25 minutes depending on where. Cambridge is another 5 to 8 minutes.
South Station (rail & bus station), 16 minutes by Red Line.
Downtown Crossing Station (main stop for downtown) 18 min.
Mass General (Charles St./MGH Station): 23 minutes
MIT (Kendall Sq./MIT Station) 25 minutes
Harvard Square Station, 31 minutes
For those needing to travel to the Longwood Medical Area, you can take the Red Line (near me, either Ashmont or Shawmut Stations) 12 minutes to the JFK/UMass Station, where there is a free and frequent shuttle bus to the Longwood Medical Area (about 20 minutes, depending on your stop in the huge Longwood area). Realistically, if you are commuting to Longwood, you should allow 45 minutes door-to-door by public transit.
Getting from the airport is super convenient and FREE by public transit. There is a "Silver Line" electric high-capacity bus that stops curbside at each terminal and goes directly to South Station in Boston where you have a free transfer below ground to the aforementioned Red Line.
In addition to reliable public transit, there is off street parking for those who are driving.
The townhouse has central air conditioning, outdoor deck and a small yard, washer/dryer and dishwasher, all of which are available to you.
The basic food supplies are included (coffee, milk, cereal, etc.) and you are welcome to purchase food and use the fridge, as well as order food delivery. A large supermarket in within walking distance and there is a smaller convenience store across the street. The kitchen is available primarily for breakfast and light use for dinner, snacking, microwaving. No major cooking, please.
Price is $85 for 1, on your own floor w/private bath; $20 for extra person (you can share the bedroom or each have your own bedroom, as there are 2 bedrooms on your floor). You also have your own half bath and full bath. (weekly & monthly pricing is lower). (I have my own bath, so there are 2 1/2 baths total, you get 1 1/2 for yourself).

Bill's lovely home is the perfect place to stay while exploring Boston. The house is spacious, clean and bright, and Bill is a gracious and accommodating host. The neighborhood is full of large stately homes, convenient to the T (Ashmont Station is within walking distance, if you like to walk or there is a bus that stops directly in front of the house and takes you to the T). My first stay was in snow season, but for summer stays the beach is nearby. Bill can tell you about all the great neighborhood restaurants and bakeries. I will be staying again!
Bill is the friendliest and generous person that I have met in the US so far. The housing was wonderful and we had all the space we needed to have an amazing stay in Boston.
Thank you very much Bill!
My business partner, Lynn, and I stayed with Bill during a 6 day conference we were attending at the Boston Convention and Expo center; while I had some reservations about what it would be like to commute back and forth to our conference from Dorchester we opted to stay with Bill because it was so much more affordable than the $250-$500 hotel rooms near the convention center.
What I discovered was that my stay in Boston was so much more enjoyable because of our commute, as well as because of the wonderful host that Bill was. Public transportation in Boston is easy and very safe and I got a true feel for life in Boston because I had an opportunity "live" like the locals.
Bills place is lovely and very, very comfortable, but more than anything he is an amazing host; generous, kind, accommodating and helpful beyond words.
I was initially a bit concerned about what it might be like to share a space with a host; in the past when I had used airbnb I always rented a space of my own (I am the type of person who values my own space and privacy). But I have to say that it was a wonderful experience and to anyone who is concerned about this I would say that you have no need to worry if you are coming to town to stay with Bill.
He was totally respectful of our privacy while making himself available to us when we needed anything at all.
Also, my business partner became very ill soon after we arrived and so she had to return home; which left me alone with my host. And again, while this may have normally been a concern (sharing a house with a man who is a total stranger to me) once again, I can only say that being with Bill was nothing less than a perfect experience.
He was always there to offer advice when needed, he was beyond generous in offering lifts to and from the train, airport, supermarket, access to laundry, coffee, snacks and room in the fridg for my own food. The list goes on.....
If I am ever back in Boston I look forward to staying with Bill again!
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Bill à notre arrivée. Nous ne l'avons pas revu après car il part tôt le (website hidden) maison est très agréable et très bien entretenue. Les deux chambres que nous avions étaient grandes et nous avons apprécié leur situation indépendante au rez-de-chaussée de la maison. Nous avions lu dans un commentaire qu'il fallait 40 mn pour aller dans le centre-ville et nous avons été agréablement surpris car nous n'avons jamais mis plus de 30 mn, en comptant les 10 mn pour aller à pied au métro, dans une rue très agréable. Bref, nous avons été ravis de notre séjour et recommandons cette habitation.
The place itself is good, the bedrooms are big, we ad our own bathroom, washing machine.... Bill has been a really great host, he is always trying to help. The only inconveniet is the situation: it is at the end of the red line so we had at least 40 minutes to downton.
