The space

This room is located in my apartment, which I often have another air bnb guest in the back room, otherwise I live alone. It's a convertible space from a TV room, and is semi private for guest. This room is a pass through for the back bedroom. The pass through is the corner space of the room. The room does have plenty of privacy. In general the room is really perfect for 1-4 night stay's. It's a perfect space for a last minute bed, especially good for people that plan on being out all day. You are welcomed to use the hammock in the back of the house. **NOTE**As a response from Air bnb feedback, I now live in space alone, there is no longer alone, often there is an Airbnb guest staying in theroom. The sofa sleeper is brand new (9/2014). The room now has an air conditioner. (7/24/15)

My apartment is located in Jamaica Plain, a diverse and safe neighborhood in Boston! The apartment has a shared bathroom, available eat in kitchen and your own private bedroom with and a gigantic TV. GLBTQ friendly, no drugs, smoking, or alcohol. I do have a small dog, extremely friendly, warm and loving. The room does have Wifi.

The house is conveniently located on a major street in the neighborhood. The bedroom is located in the middle of the house so the noise is less then it would be int he front.. My apartment is quiet and I am not around much. We are walking distance from the bus and train stations.

There are several grocery stores nearby (walk to Harvest Co-op and whole foods is less then a mile.-which absolutely amazing!) I am also located next to many restaurants, coffee shops, sandwich shops, bakeries and bars. Walking distance to public transportation to downtown Boston. Also close to hospitals, colleges, Universities and Fenway Park! You can also hop on to the T and be in Faneuil Hall or Chinatown in 20 minutes.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Guest access

Please feel free to use the Kitchen and Bathroom.

Interaction with guests

Though I enjoy the guests, I am in the background and available to help them make their trip the best possible. I interact a minimal amount and realize that this is their vacation or quick getaway and most like to 'pack in a lot in a little time'.

Other things to note

There is plenty of free street parking. For the most part it's not a problem. If it is we do have a driveway for a temp. solution.

Robin's place is in a great location, easy to access. It's ideal for a person traveling by themselves. The bed is a fold-out couch that is comfy for one person, but less so if you're sharing the bed. Robin is friendly and helpful.

We had a wonderful two nights stay with Robin in Jamaica Plain, Robin is a very nice host, the place is cozy and i love her dog Sammi, very sweet and quiet. the neighbourhood is great! restaurants , convenience store, Dunkin Dounts etc all close by, We could reach the city by subway or bus easily, only about 10 minutes walk to the Orange line or take the bus just cross the street.

Had a wonderful stay with Robin in Jamaica Plain - She was most gracious about my late arrival and early departure. The location was great, loved walking to the arboretum (with her great dog Sammi) and the beautiful town of Jamaica Plain. Great shops and restaurants. Will be back to visit my son soon.

Hi there, I'm GLBTQ friendly. An avid dancer, I dance Country 2 Stepping, Line dancing, Contra and all types of Swing. I have a very very sweet dog (Sammi) that loves everyone. I'm very busy, not home much. I enjoy hosting and meeting people from all walks of life. The 5 things I can't live without are: (not in any particular order) dancing, TV, Movies, Bike, family, friends. Opps, I ran past my 5 ;-) I also have been told my many people that I have an good sense of humor, my motto in life is "Learn to bend so you don't have to break".
