Offered to you is a private, comfortable room with it's own entrance in my duplex condo. The City central location is in Boston's hip South End, just steps from Tremont Street's restaurant row, fashionable Newbury Street, Copley Square, Prudential Center and Hynes convention center. Boston Convention Center and Cambridge is an easy (T public transport ) ride. Back Bay Train and T station allows you to get to most everything you will want quickly or you may choose to get there slowly by foot or community shared biking plus many gyms to choose. I enjoy meeting new people and hosting my home. Airbnb is a great concept and I host as well use it as a guest and find it a great alternative to expensive hotels. My location gives you easy access to all that Boston has to offer whether you are here for business or pleasure.
The duplex set up is perfect, the room has a very comfortable full size bed, extremely clean, wifi and fine linens, iron, board, hair dyer with it's own heat control. Private entrance to your room and separate entrance to go downstairs to common space. The common area is offered for your use, kitchen, living room, half bathroom and patio with a outdoor hot tub at about 100 degrees. There are two bathrooms, the master bath is between the two bedrooms on street level.
My place is easy to get to and from Logan Airport or two blocks from Back Bay Train Station from NYC. Very Artsy, vibrant area. Note, this is not South Boston, but The South End is steps to Back Bay , Theater district, Beacon Hill, Chinatown, Copley Square, Fenway area and Newbury Street. The neighborhood is safe, friendly, and perfect to use as a base for Boston travel. I am willing to accommodate most needs and adaptable to most requests.
There is limited parking, expensive in South End, the average price for an over night garage is $28/ 24 hours. Zipcar as well as Avis are with in two blocks . I know you have many places to stay in Boston, but you can be sure your stay here will exceed expectations.
Coffee, tea, fruit, cereal and yummy pastries from local bakeries included. Kitchen is well- equipped if you feel like cooking . My outdoor space is quiet and peaceful with lots of bamboo and a outdoor hot tub to soak your trouble away.
If you saw the movie TED and would like to stay one block from his place, BOOK NOW, Be a Bostonian for at least a few days.
Kind regards, Gerald
All common space as well as Skye, my dog.

Gerald was a total sweetheart, bending over backwards to make sure I was comfortable. The room was cozy, quiet and warm, the bathroom squeaky clean, and he even brought me a scone for breakfast every morning! This was my first visit to Boston, and I was in good hands. It's also a fantastic location, with public transport and a zipcar lot nearby and a lot of really cute shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay with him again!
Gerry is one of the best hosts I have stayed with. He makes sure you have the best experience staying at his place. Also, he was very understanding of my very late check-in need.
Staying in Gerald's place was wonderful! The location was great, given that the apartment was really close to lots of good restaurants and cafes, as well as Back Bay station. The apartment itself is cosy and decorated beautifully. Gerald was very hospitable and even bought us a really lovely spread of pastries for breakfast. Skye, his Tibetan terrier, is also adorable and very friendly. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Boston.
Gerald goes over the board to make your stay a special one. He will have the most delicious pastries in town ready for your arrival and will put everything in his kitchen available for you (coffee, tea, drinks etc.) The place is located in South End (one of Boston's nicest neighborhoods) and is walking distance away from Backbay. The room itself is nice and cozy. It was perfect for my needs.
Staying at Gerald's place was a great experience. Gerald is one of the most gracious hosts I have meet. The hot tub was amazing. He provided fresh pastries in the morning, was really good at orienting people people from out of town. The way he has decorated his home is interesting and unique. You can't help feeling nothing but relaxed in his space. I would definitely want to stay here again!
Fantastic! Absolutely no complaints, and just as wonderful as all the previous reviewers suggested. Gerald was a welcoming and hospitable host, answered my pre-trip queries graciously, provided all the local tips I could want (train logistics, street directions, best restaurants, etc.), and even went out to gather delicious pastries for breakfast. The condo is perfectly located, easily walkable to much of downtown, only a 5 min stroll from Back Bay train station. Safe, charming neighborhood. Terrific in all ways -- I would be delighted to stay here again on any future trip.
Gerald a is a very helpful and friendly host! When I arrived, he wanted to pick me up from the train station. And then provided me with good recommendations on places to visit / eat. His food recommendations are definitely top notch! :)
His place is in a very nice neighbourhood and easy to get to sightseeing places - near to the train station too. I would highly recommend Gerald's place to anyone who wants to visit Boston
First time using Airbnb and what a fantastic experience. Gerald is welcoming and very flexible (accommodated all my requests). I was treated like a genuine guest in his home. Room was of sufficient size, located on the ground floor on a street with minimum through traffic. Great location within walking distance of sights and shopping. Bathroom was clean with good pressure in shower and plenty of towels. I was even treated with a little gift when I left Boston.
The house, location and host are all fabulous! Gerald is so friendly, helpful and easy going. I felt comfortable immediately, and spoiled too with delicious pastries and a french press of coffee waiting for me in the morning. He also has a ridiculously cute dog named Sky. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Awesome and amazing!
What a great experience! If possible, these accommodations are even better than the pictures--and the host was enormously helpful before and during my stay.
At first I was nervous to book with a shared bath, but because of our scheduling and Gerald's consideration, there was never "traffic" in the bathroom. Gerald provided specific and correct directions (so much better than hopstop) for my arrival, met me even though I arrived early, and gave me a tour of both the space AND of the entire neighborhood. He and Sky hiked me over to my conference site, pointing out landmarks so I wouldn't get lost on my own, and walked me through both the Back Bay area and the vicinity of the conference hotel. It seemed that everyone we met was happy to see both my host and his puppy--always a good sign.
Gerald also sat down with a Boston map and made tourist suggestions (as well as some less-touristy finds!). All his advice was spot on. I only regret that my responsibilities kept me from enjoying his amazingly-decorated, comfortable space.
I will be returning to continue my exploration of the area once the weather warms up and I am hoping to return to my new favorite accommodations.
