The space

Apartment now has permanent, hi-speed cable internet with easy WiFi access!

Small studio in Brigham Circle, short walk to Harvard Medical, Dental and Public Health schools, and one block further to MassArt, the Fenway and the Museum of Fine Arts. There is good pizza, good halal/indian food, multiple good pubs, a stop and shop, barbers/stylists, drug stores all within a block.

Just steps from Green line trolley stop (Fenwood Rd./ Green line E) to Downtown and everywhere in between! (less than 10 mins train ride to downtown.)

The apartment compactly sleeps 2. Groups of 2 of all ages have stayed at the apartment and have enjoyed their stay. A few times, 3 budget strapped students have stayed there and apparently gotten sleep-- that's a squeeze! *Update* The bed is a full as people said --and it has been for months but now once again has a frame and is now well above the floor (-; (July '14). If you have specific mattress preferences, I can give you an idea of whether it will work for you before booking--just ask.

tiled bath with real tub, hardwood floors, windows overlooking street, high ceiling in the room, and mini-kitchenette (half stovetop, fridge, toaster over, microwave, sink & cabinets).
Fresh towels and sheets upon your arrival.

At one time I used the space as studio for drawing, and architecture work, so one wall is decorated with architectural drawings and the like: easy on the eyes but also interesting to look at.
I don't these days use the apartment for work, except in a passing way while waiting for guests to arrive.. so the table is cleared off for guest use.
Also, we live a couple miles away (a 13 minute bike ride!), so days that are booked I won't need to stay there, but am most of the time within a couple of miles should you need me.

Now that I have an internet connection for you to share, it's not so necessary, but I can also direct you to where Wifi spots and cafes are located nearby, and elsewhere in Boston (The new in 2012 GreenTCafe around the block, JP Licks, the local ice cream chain foremost among them, a block inbound on Huntington below the Stop and Shop grocery).
Use of any cereal, milk, and coffee, tea are included, as well as the refrigerator, toaster oven and stovetop, etc. There is also an iron for your clothes and hangers in the closet.

Guest access

The hallway of the building, the apartment, backyard and the laundry room in the next door basement.

Other things to note

For Dec 9 & 10 2016, the apartment will be self-service, two day stay min. I will drop a set of fresh laundry in the closet on thu or friday. Typically guests clean up after themselves so it should be a good deal regardless.

Never any smoking of any kind in the apartment or building!

Leave the apartment in a respectful state of tidiness upon leaving. Wet towels should be hung in the shower/tub, trash taken out.

Please check first about bringing pets (typically discouraged).

Please keep reasonably quiet!

Sheets, towels and other cleaning are done by me. I do these things at different times. Always before dinner time (or before you arrive it's a really late arrival). Probably before 3pm, during the school year at about 1pm usually. In the dead of winter, esp. if there is a lot of snow there may be delays. If you have really specific needs, you should speak up ahead of time. NOTE although i do try to keep the apartments stocked with toilet paper and soap i do not make additional trips to the apartments to replenish them.

Try to sort out recycling, take out recycling/ trash to the alley bins if you can. Do not leave trash laying around, especially outside.

Please communicate, communicate, communicate. Ask questions! That's the main rule. I am flexible and the apartment can be as well. Most likely, I'll be happy to accommodate your needs and make you happy in return!

Please keep quiet while in the apartment, don't slam doors, "indoor voices". It's a small building with a lot of occupants. Thank you.

If you need a reasonable priced room, with EASY access to transportation (still a walkable distance downtown), and a place to sleep at night then this is the room for you. It's small and simple, not the kinda place for staying inside. This is the type of room you need if you plan on going out and enjoying the city!

Please please please do NOT book this listing!!!! We walked in to Sean’s place at the check in time 1 pm. I kid you not, the sheets were not changed from the last people, there was a dirty towel on the toilet, the microwave was CAKED with old food... this place was disgusting! I messaged Sean at first to make sure he had time to come clean it, when I noticed the fresh towels and new toilet paper roll on the floor in the bathroom. The garbage had also been changed. So yes, someone had been there in between the last guest to “clean” and this is what we were left with. I contacted air bnb immediately to get a refund so we could get the hell out of this place! In the mean time Sean messaged back saying his check in time is 1 but he might not get around to clean the place until 330 because he was busy. We ended up getting a refund (I wish I could post the pictures) but were then stranded in Boston to find a hotel on a home Patriots game weekend. We are now staying 30 min outside of Boston. My worst air bnb experience ever.

Great place in a safe area; close to the T and a comfortable stay.

This place is a good value and Sean is quick to respond to emails. Is it the most beautiful airbnb I've ever set foot in? No. But if you think that's what you're signing up for here, that's on you. The neighborhood is safe, in a good lacation, and it's a fine place to crash while you're in Boston. Thanks for being a great host, Sean!

Sean was great at responding and making sure the place was ready when we got into town. The place is exactly what it is and for the price there is not much you can complain about. The only thing I will say is the neighbor enjoys pot (like seriously all day and all night) and the smell was so strong I woke up to it. I am really sensitive to smell and don’t mind that at all but it was so strong it made me sick.

Interaction with guests

I am sometimes around for check in, but more frequently it's a self-check in type of experience. I really enjoy meeting guests in person when I can!

About Sean

I have been hosting people from all over the world through Airbnb for more than three years now and have really enjoyed the experience. Chatting with guests upon check in lets me not only tell them what a great city Boston is and how much it has to offer but to also listen to stories of where they live or have been to. That's what makes Airbnb such a great community builder in my mind - connecting people from all parts and walks of life.
Just like all of the travelers that I've hosted, I am a traveler myself - having been to a number of countries in Central Asia, Europe, and lived for a time in Micronesia. Each time I travel, I make sure to find a local connection to tell me about places off the beaten path that a tourist guide might miss, and if all else fails - I just enjoy seeing where my feet (or a local bus/train/subway) take me. So if you're looking for the best Ethiopian food in Boston or a little known museum (a whole room of the most realistic glass flowers hand blown in the 19th century), I can definitely point you in the right direction.
Speaking of directions, I bike a LOT around town and would be happy to provide a bike when you stay at either of my places. Boston may have a great (oldest in North America) subway system, but sometimes it's just nice to get on a bike and see where the next street takes you!
What keeps me not only travelling on Airbnb but also hosting are the notes that I frequently get, letting me know what a great time someone had or how much they enjoyed visiting a part of city I mentioned to them. These notes always put a smile on my face and leave me knowing that I have made someone's visit memorable!
