Stayed here for two weeks during Tufts pre-session before our lease started. Easy bike ride to campus and close to necessities. It could get a bit crowded if all the rooms were at full capacity, but Nanan would text us to let us know who was coming and going so there were no surprises. Great solution for our need for temporary housing.

Nanan and Chris were the best of hosts, welcoming and hospitable. All that was needed for a great stay was made available. Their home is a wonderful place to stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Acadia Room! Nanan greeted us on arrival and showed us around the house. The room was very clean and well stocked with towels and toiletries. The other house guests were super sweet and friendly and made us feel very welcome. We loved the location, too, and had no issues catching a bus or walking to the Red Line to go downtown. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!

Nanan is the best host ever! She welcomed us with her cute, friendly and obedient puppy at the front door, and then gave us a tour of the house with an overview of the house rules. Nanan also took her time to give us recommendations on where to visit and eat in Boston, which was so helpful! The house was really clean and neat! You could tell that Nanan cleans up very regularly. The house is in a great location as well. I would highly recommend staying with Nanan and Chris if you visit Boston.

Nanan and her husband are the best hosts I've experienced so far in Airbnb. They are responsive to messages. The location is easy to find, the neighbourhood is quiet and safe. A walking distance of around 5 minutes to get to a small shopping street for food and grocery. The house is nicely furnished with the spacious open area to share, such as kitchen, living room as the picture suggested and dining room. The Acadia room offered is clean and neat. Especially, the bed is super comfortable! What's really memorable is that this couple is filled with passion for life, people and diverse culture. I feel very blessed to stay in this warm house. As a solo traveler, I was treated as a member of the family. Nanan took me to Georges Island in Boston, offered me a Bible study and a nice dinner. Their extensive travel experience and positive attitude totally uplifted my stay. The dinner full of laughter at the dinner table with the couple and another Haitian girl studying at Harvard University is enduring; and is forever cherished in my memory. Upon the day I was leaving, this kind-hearted couple offered me their church experience, treated me a nice dinner at a local Chinese restaurant and gave me generously a drive to the airport. They are more than just nice people, they are god-sent. I will definitely go back to visit.

Nanan is a wonderful person She is the perfect host, able to discern the needs of her ward and make their stint hassle-free and pleasurable. She is too generous, making available to anyone food on her table. She goes out of her way to make her guests feel at home and safe. Nanan has an equally wonderful husband in the person of Chris, who has had an impressive experience in both public service and missionary work. They are an epitome of a loving, God-fearing couple that endeavors more to share their blessings and time with people around them rather than to get more than what is necessary. Their lives are testament to how life should be lived. Chris even took us to the bus station and sincerely wished us well and even prayed for our safety. Bless you both. God is good!
