The Space

If you want to be close to the sites, wake up to the sounds of seagulls, and have the amenities of comfort, look no further!

Of course the bonus is my cat Violet!

It's safe, very well located, and comfortable. You can get back during the day if your feet are tired. While the apartment is small it is well designed.

You'll have access to the entire apartment, full kitchen, bath, and private room.

Sometimes I'm in town and other times I'm traveling. I'm always accessible by phone or text.

There's a basket of information about what to do while you're in town.

It's close to everything! Within 5-10 minutes on foot you can get to:

► Beacon Hill
► Financial District
► Waterfront
► North End
► TD Garden
► Cambridge
► Back Bay (Newbury Street)

The subway is one block away, the airport is 15 minutes away (depending on traffic), and you can walk to many sites.

If you stay here, you'll receive:

✔ Elevator (VERY nice when you bring luggage)
✔ One block from subway
✔ 15-20 minutes from Logan airport
✔ Self-serve breakfast with yogurt, milk, coffee, cereal
✔ Hairdryer
✔ Iron and ironing board
✔ Air-conditioning
✔ Use of umbrellas
✔ Basket of maps and other to-dos in Boston
✔ Sunday New York Times
✔ Wireless internet access
✔ 5 minutes from Whole Foods and CVS
✔ Fresh linens and towels
✔ Safe and secure building
✔ Lots of past happy guests!

Look forward to having you!

Interaction with Guests

If it's a share and I'm in town, we'll interact as much as works with schedules.

VERY close to most everything. Fascinating history - it's where Leonard Nimoy grew up.

Getting around

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Our first experience with airbnb and it was a really good experience. A comfortable and well located apartment to visit Boston.
    But the most important is the kindness of Diane who can help you for everything.
    Violet is also a pleasant host who takes care of you when Diane is outside.

    Thank you for all.

  • This apartment was perfect for our ladies only vacation. The apartment itself is in the best possible spot in Boston (best location). It is so close to TD Gardens and North Station so it makes getting around Boston so easy!
    Diane was such a gracious hostess and the welcoming party (Violet) was a complete delight! I, myself, am not a cat person but Violet was such a sweetie. I will definitely be staying again when I get the chance.

  • Diane & Violet have been perfect hosts during my stay in Boston. All is thought to welcome guests as best as possible. If you forget something, you can be sure to find a backup in the "emergency" basket ;-) Diane has some good adresses to suggest and the apartment is situated close to everything. The flat is very clean and welcoming.

    Such fun to have you! Please come back!!

  • As first time AirBnb users we were a little nervous about the whole idea... but as many other reviews of Diane's place stated there was nothing to worry about. The apartment was great, and the location just as good. Diane was extremely friendly and helpful and made the whole stay great! Would stay again any time.

    Delight to host you. Please keep me posted on your adventures. Hope to make it to South Africa.

  • Diane was a charming and attentive host - not to mention a wealth of information on all things Boston. The apartment itself was bright and the bed comfortable. We particularly enjoyed being greeted with coffee and a bit of a chat in the morning, as it almost made the work-heavy trip feel a bit homey! And, of course, Violet was a treat.

    Response from Diane:

    Lovely to have you! Please come back!

  • Diane was very accommodating! She made us feel at home, and Violet was a peach. She had coffee ready for us every morning when we woke up which was nice for us weary festival goers. It was a great location, just a 2 minute walk from the amtrak station, and 5 mins from our concerts. We will definitely want to stay there again when we go to Boston! Thank you!

  • Our host Diane was very accommodating. Her apartment was well located and convenient to all downtown attractions plus a fantastic whole foods supermarket. She has cleverly labelled EVERYTHING which eliminates any guessing! A wonderful travellers aid! We very much enjoyed meeting Diane and Violet, who lived up to her hostess status!

    Response from Diane:

    Becky & Andrew were delightful. Please come back! Thank you for looking after Violet.

  • This was our first time using airbnb and I admit we were a little nervous. However, Diane is a wonderful host and made us feel right at home. Location, location, location... the apartment is in the perfect central location within walking distance to everything downtown Boston has to offer. The bed is one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in and caused us to sleep in later than planned, but that is what vacations are all about! Based on this experience, I would stay with Diane again if ever traveling to Boston.
