About this listing
The perfect weekend getaway is a private bedroom on a quiet side street near Commonwealth Ave. The room has three large windows to let all the natural light in. It also has a large closet for you to hang your clothes. The bathroom is shared with two females.
The house is on the second floor of a two-family home located between Boston College and Boston University in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston. It is less than a 15 minute walk to the hippest restaurants and bars in the trendy neighborhoods of Allston/Brighton, and Coolidge Corner in Brookline.
There are two adorable cats in the house, but they will never bother you and have not been exposed to the guest room. We also have a fuzzy little bunny that will bring joy to your heart.

This was a wonderful place to stay! Katy was able to help us out by saving us a visitor parking space for the weekend, and the accommodations were very nice. Comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, plenty of privacy, and an extremely convenient location. There was even coffee and a little mini-fridge! I loved staying here and definitely would again the next time we visit Boston.
Perfect! This room has everything you need. 5 minute walk to the T. The restroom is ridiculously clean, and so is the room. The bed is very comfortable. Your room has a little fridge which is very convenient, along with a coffee maker, and an electric kettle. Lots of storage for your belongings. The neighborhood is very safe and calm. I enjoyed my stay with Katy and Ashley!
My son was on Katy and Ashley for 2015 Boston Marathon.
As expected, It was perfect !
The place, the locomotion, the comfortable house.
Hope to return next year.
Thank you again Katy and Ashley !

I had a great time at Katy and Ashley. The room is very cozy, and they are great hosts.
Katy and Ashley are great hosts. We stayed there for 2 nights while moving into our new place nearby. They are both very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and cozy, and exactly how it is described. We really felt like home. I would definitely recommend.
About the Host, Katy And Ashley
Katy is currently employed full time at a bakery, and pursuing her MBA at Boston College. Ashley works in the neighborhood and is an avid vinyl record enthusiast. We love to travel and know what it can be like exploring a new city. We decided to open our home to budget travelers like us, because we know how expensive Boston can be to visit.
We have been hosting a year now, and absolutely love it. We have met some amazing people and look forward to meeting you. We will do everything we can to make sure you have the best stay while in Boston. We hope that you enjoy your time in the city, and look forward to hosting you during your visit.
