The Space

A living room in our bright and sunny apartment in Medford, MA. Downtown Boston is 15 minutes by car, 20 minutes by express bus, 30 minutes by subway (subway accessible on foot- 15 minute walk- or 2 bus options stopping right on our corner that bring you to the subway). We are a young couple who both love to travel and enjoy hosting people, especially if you're visiting Boston for the first time! We can offer our living room, with a large couch or queen size air mattress. The apartment is newly renovated with beautiful hardwood floors throughout and a clean, minimal style. Full bathroom with fresh linens, towels and hairdryer if you need it! We love to cook and kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, full set of knives and cooking and baking supplies, speakers set up for enjoying music while you cook, a dining table and fire escape (with small gas grill) opening to a quiet back yard and nice breezes! We've just added a Japanese screen for guests to create a private space in the living room. =) Many of our guests visit by bus or train, but if you drive there is free parking on the street right in front of the building.

Also included are:
Fresh linens and towels
Use of our kitchen
Free wi-fi internet
Free access to our local gym (as our guest)

Rechargeable pass for the T (subway and bus)
Lots of friendly tips on local sites, how to get around, or whatever you need to know!

  • It was divine. Although Felicia was out of town the week we stayed, she was very kind enough to leave the keys for us and even the air mattress was ready when we got to the apartment. Everything was perfect. She left little cute notes for us around the apartment. The commute was great too. The bus station was right out the apartment. And there is a breakfast/brunch place near the apartment.
    We would stay there again if we go back to Boston.

  • Delight stay at Felicia's. Water was strong and hot. Plenty of free car parking right next to the place. Literally 10 min away from city. Recommended!!

  • Felicia was so gentle and always willing to help and give the best suggestion and information. I'll book it again if needed. ;)

  • Felicia's place was exactly as pictured, no surprises! Their place is warm and inviting and she and her husband were great hosts! Would definitely recommend anyone staying there! Also, it's a great location, easy to get to the main highways and public transportation and great neighborhood restaurants close by!

  • I really enjoyed staying with Felicia and Mauricio! Not only was their place great, I really loved getting to know them. The place itself is easy to go in and out of town from by public transportation and the grocery store across the street is really useful. The apartment is clean and has an inviting atmosphere. Felicia and Mauricio are the greatest hosts and are willing to help with anything you need! If I ever need a place to stay in Boston again I already know who I'll come to!

  • Nice and comfortable, not too far from the Metro Station, grocery store across the street, and never had issues parking the car.

  • Felicia and Mauricio have a great space in a great place. They made my trip to Boston possible and I have all the thanks in the world for their hospitality.

  • We had an amazing time at Felicias place. The apartment was really nice an only a short drive from the city centre. We could leave the car right infront of the door. Mauricio helped us with everything we needed and had great ideas for things to do plus was really fun and interesting to talk to. If you go to Boston I would really recommend to stay at their place!

  • I knew they were good news when I saw that they have a Big Lebowski bowling ball.

    Felicia and Mauricio are the best hosts. Insanely friendly, supremely accessible, and as other reviewers have said, give as much or as little privacy as you could want.

    They even made brownies!

    If you want to come to Boston, put these two on your short list.

  • Felicia and Mauricio are the top of the pops! They are brilliant. I can't emphasize this enough. I will USE ALL CAPS IN THIS REVIEW IF I NEED TO!!

    They offer:
    * A warm and inviting home.
    * Valuable advice (if wanted).
    * privacy (if wanted {personally I wanted more of them both in my life all the time}).
    * A hot shower, with water pressure, face cloths and towels.
    * A kitchen with every device you might require
    * Bedding options (sheets, pillows, couch, a good inflatable double bed)
    * UNPARALLELED ENTHUSIASM FOR ALL

    One addendum, if you're a slob and/or phobic of public transportation the location of their house may not be for you.

    It's a fifteen minute brisk walk to the local T-station (30 min to city), and there is a weekday morning/evening express to Haymarket (20min). That suited us fine, it might not everyone.

    Also, they provided a Charlie card.

    Also, they will write up directions or a map for you. 'Cause they're rad.

    That's about all I can think of right now.
