Boston Proper Duplex Great LOCATION

Apartment - Private room · Lawrence St, Boston, MA 02116, United States

The Space

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

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Staying here was just wonderful. It's a lovely apartment in a great location and Jerry was super helpful. Arrangement were very smooth and it was just a million times better than staying at the Marriot Copley (where I spent the first two nights). I felt very well looked after (great pastry, full fridge, enthusiastic dog greetings) while at the same time able to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. This was my first air bnb experience and it'll be very difficult to top it!

    Response from Gerald:

    Awesome words. Glad you choose to stay with me. Gerald

  • I am new to AirBnB, and this experience makes me want to return -- both to AirBnB and to South Bay in Boston. The accommodation was very nice and Gerald (along with his little dog Sky) was a great host. It was comforting to have someone who knew the city and area giving me a map and advice on transportation, historic sites and restaurants. I had yogurt and granola in the morning and then Gerald and Sky sent me off with a fresh scone (from their morning walk to the bakery) in a bag to eat at my conference. The neighborhood provided easy access to transportation, restaurants and city sites, and it was a comfortable walk to the Public Gardens and Boston Commons. At much less than the cost of a hotel by the Convention Center, I had a nice place and really got to experience Boston.

  • Gerald is a lovely host, incredibly helpful to tourists. Gave us a map and recommendations. Saved us a lot of time finding yummy restaurants! Would definitely stay there again! Room was spacious, clean and comfy. And offered us tea and brekky!!

  • Gerald was a very pleasant and helpful host. His apartment is literally 2 mins walk to Back Bay "T" Station on the Orange Line so easy to access anywhere in Boston.Great for me as it was only a short ride to the TD Garden where i got to see my Bruins and Celtics play. Easy to get to and from the airport aswell. The apartment is lovely situated on a quite street. You will have your own room,sharing a bathroom and access to the rest of the apartment.There is a CVS store just around the corner and a number of places to eat within easy walking distance. You can walk to Boylston and Newbury Streets,the main shopping areas in 5 mins and also Copley Square,and it's only about 15 min walk to Boston Common where you can start " The Freedom Trail". Boston is a great city to walk around. Gerald is only to happy to help with any questions you may have or just to have a chat. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this place to anyone.

  • Gerald is a wonderful host! The place is very easy to find, in a quiet and charming neighborhood with lots of great restaurants (about which Gerald was extremely knowledgeable) and convenient access to a cool part of Boston. The room is quiet and comfortable, and Gerald generously bought the tastiest pastries in the mornings! Skye is also a charmer :) I will definitely look Gerald up again if I happen to be traveling through Boston.

  • 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.

    Response from Gerald:

    It was great meeting you and hope to see you again. Gerald

  • 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!

30 plus years of employment at Dana Farber Cancer Institute has allowed me to own my duplex condo. I like to decorate and love to travel, but really like the return to my home after each trip. I consider myself a great host as I have stayed in many fine establishments including places owned by friends. My main job is caring for people and airbnb is an extension of what I like to do. I look forward to your visit in the heart of the City. Gerald
