Note: This unit is 5-6 miles outside of downtown so please take location into consideration before you book.

Shops, market and restaurants all within a mile. Harvard Arboretum right up the road! Close to Newton and Brookline.

Owner on site to help with anything you may need. This is a great way to spend some time in Boston for a fraction of the cost. You're still in the city but in a more comfortable "suburban" environment. Very affordable rates compared to what you would spend at a hotel.

City living with a suburban convenience!

This rental can also be combined with Airbnb #962610 for larger groups.

Interaction with Guests

I'm available for questions anytime before or during your stay. Do not hesitate to ask me anything.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting Around

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.
