Interaction with Guests

Near the fells reservation, at the end of the street is an ice skating rink, across from weights pond.
We are located near the 100 bus and the 325 bus. The 325 goes to Haymarket Square downtown and the 100 goes to Wellington Station where the orange line is accessible.

Other Things to Note
Please try not to close the cat in the room, as she needs her freedoms to roam around.
We are a non-smoking residence. We allow light cooking.
It was really nice just to have a place to sleep. Conversation is good, but we had such a busy weekend that it was nice to be able to run in and out when needed! I will be staying here next time I'm in the area. I will also suggest Ava and Josh's place to friends and family!
We we able to spend time with Ava and Josh about the third night into our stay. They are a lovely couple, very warm, and very personable. They are also very busy people. Their cat Honey is just as warm and friendly as they are (although it is weird saying "Hi Honey" to someone that isn't my Husband haha).
This was our first experience with airbnb so we have no comparison. The bed was clean, but had no towels our first morning and ended up going through the linen closet until we found a large bath towel to share. About an hour later Josh responded to our text and brought us a set of towels and washcloths. I felt I was totally warned that there are steps to get to the house, just didn't realize how many and how steep. Once again, we knew about the stairs, so no fault of our hosts or the listing. Mass-transit is also not as good as expected. During the week, during rush hours, transit is excellent. Lousy on the weekend and in between the rush hour times. Thanks to Uber and Lyft we could get around, but they're not as inexpensive either. If you stay with Ava and Josh, best to have your own vehicle. As they state, there is plenty of free parking. So question: Would we stay there again? Yes we would.
Ava & Josh are awesome as hosts. We felt at home at their house and really that's a big thing to feel like in a strangers home. The house is well connected with bus route which connects you to subway.
If you wish to feel like staying amidst greenery, near medford pond, on a hill and in an old and continental style bungalow, this can be a great place. And yes its quite economical.
Also, living room and kitchen is made available to the guests all the time and hence you don't feel constrained to your room.
We used airbnb for the first time and had an amazing experience. This will be our first choice next time we come to Boston.
Clean, friendly, comfortable, and thoughtful communication. Recommend.
I stayed in Ava and Josh's place with my boyfriend for four nights. The apartment is very cozy: the room was clean and warm, the bed comfortable, the kitchen great! And they have a lovely cat. You can get to downtown easily in 40min with public transportation, so the location is not a problem. Ava and Josh are very helpful and kind. We really liked our stay!
The place was just as it was described. The place is clean, the bed is very comfortable, and the shower was nice and hot. It's a nice area but on a busy street which the owners told us about. We didn't see them very much but we weren't around that much either. All in all, it was a good experience and we may repeat if we need a place again.
We had a lovely stay here. The room was clean and spacious. Location is good with easy access into Boston. Although we didn't get to chat to Ava and Josh, they communicated regularly and were attentive to our needs. We fell in love with their adorable cat!
