City living with a suburban convenience!

Interaction with Guests
I'm available for questions anytime before or during your stay. Do not hesitate to ask me anything.
This neighborhood truly has it all. Good, not overpriced restaurants and a variety of food. Everything you need (groceries, zipcar, alcohol, etc.) is within a mile. It's ideally close to the city center but in a quiet residential area. My guests tell me they feel like they are "home" when they stay here.
Plenty of on street parking with no restrictions. On major bus line. Subway is 2 miles away and is a nice walk through the Arnold Arboretum or about 10 minutes by bus. The Needham line commuter rail is about a 7-8 minute walk from the house. It runs on a set schedule Monday-(website hidden). Cab/Uber rides from the city center approx $15-25.
Other Things to Note
Please note that this is a second floor apartment on a house located on a hill. There are two flights of stairs to enter the apartment. Guests also have the option of entering in the back of the house which would require a walk up an inclined driveway and one set of stairs.

We have travelled all over the world and never has staying in a foreign place been so relaxed!
It is really a home away from home.
The kitchen was great as well as the great appliances. We felt safe and enjoyed our stay.
Our host is really helpful and we will definitely use this apartment again if we have the opportunity to visit Boston. No hotel can match to staying here.
The communication in advance was clear, and the apartment was fine, as expected. It was clean and ready. It was nice to have access to coffee and some food items. The back bedrooms were quiet, and the neighborhood was fine.
My only disappointment was that the clothes washer wasn't working. If we had known in advance we would have packed more changes of clothing.
Our family, 5 adults, had an enjoyable stay at Damon's place. The apartment was clean and bright; had a very comfortable living room where we relaxed after busy days; and the kitchen had whatever we needed to have some of our meals.
Our main purpose was to attend our daughter's graduation at Boston College. BC was conveniently only a short drive from Damon's. However, we drove to many of Boston's attractions in different parts of the city. On a few occasions we used the MBTA or Uber. Damon's home is in a nice residential area and parking is free and available on the street.
We all agree that we would return to Damon's place in the future and would recommend it to friends. It was a huge improvement on 3 hotel rooms. It was a comfortable home away from home.
My family and I enjoyed staying at Damon's house. It was very clean and comfortable and well-equipped with almost everything we need. I loved the nice kitchen, spacious dining room and comfortable bed and couch.
Damon was very kind, gentle, and responsive. He texted me back right away whenever I texted him asking some questions. I'll definitely recommend this place to friends who vistit Boston.
Damon was an awesome host! His home was just as he described it...beautiful with lots of space! Easy drive to Fenway and Boston Commons and surrounded by great restaurants! If staying in Boston I would recommend this home! My family and I had a great experience!
We loved staying at Damons place - it was like a home away from home and SO much nicer than staying in a hotel! Description matched reality. Good sized rooms, warm, everything was very clean. Damon made us feel very welcome and was extremely friendly, generous and helpful when my whole family came down with the flu! I would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again if we come back to fabulous Boston.we also took Damons advice and booked uber taxis to get to and from the city. They were very efficient and approx the same price as it would have been for our group of 4 to take the train. Thank you for you great hospitality Damon.
Wonderful experience staying here. Impeccably clean, great kitchen and wi-fi and cable connections, perfect location for us.

About the Host, Damon
Hi, I am a thirty something, happy-go-lucky kind of guy with an entrepreneurial spirit and adventurous soul. I've spent a portion of my life traveling with the military, for jobs and school, and of course for fun! I'm a little more settled these days considering my best buddy is my 4 year old daughter so I figured I'd have to get my "traveler fix" by giving others a comfortable place to stay in the great area of Boston! Look forward to hosting you!
