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 through Saturday. Cab/Uber/Lyft 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.
NO SMOKING OR PETS ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY

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!
