The Space

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.

Your stay includes
-Fresh towels daily
-Free, secure Wi-Fi
-Coffee maker electric tea kettle, and refrigerator in the room
-Shampoo, conditioner and body wash available for your use
-Visitor parking may be found within a few blocks

  • The hosts were gracious, hospitable, and accommodating. The listing is as described: it is a bedroom with access to a shared bathroom in an apartment on the second floor of a house. There is no access to a kitchen. The hosts have provided a coffee pot with coffee and tea, as well as a refrigerator in the room. Restaurants and a Whole Foods grocery store are within a 1 mile walk. I visited on a weekend in summer when the nearby colleges were not in session. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. The listing is within a mile of the T train, near the top of a hill and most of the walk is uphill.

  • Katy and Ashley were great hosts, friendly and gave us a good recommendation for a bar nearby. The neighborhood was very quiet and convenient to the T and to many good restaurants.

  • My daughter and I went to Boston for my youngest daughter's graduation from Boston U. A friend suggested that we should look into Air BnB especially since it was graduation weekend so we did. We found Katy and Ashley's weekend getaway photos and immediately thought it would be perfect - clean , charming and comfortable. And our hosts were just the right amount of friendly and helpful too. Nice accommodations , convenient for our needs and
    it really was a great first experience for us on Air BnB - we could come and go as needed and felt totally comfortable with Katy and Ashley. And it was very close to my daughter's apartment. I will definitely be using Air BnB again for my accommodation needs. Thanks Katy and Ashley for a great place.

  • I went to Boston to run the 2014 Boston Marathon.
    Katy and Ashley are very kind and sweet girls. They awoke at 4 a. m. only to help me with my baggage and the taxi, when i leave... Thank you !!!
    The place is as good as it is described and you can see in the pictures. Perfect !
    The room is absolutely beautiful, the coffe machine was perfect to begin the day :-)
    The house is a 3 minutes from the T, and it is very easy to move from one place to another in a few minutes. The neighbor is very quiet.
    Definitely I highly recommend Katy and Ashley !

  • Maison très confortable, lit tout autant, nuit très reposante pour démarrer une nouvelle journée touristique.
    Ashley et Kelly sont très gentilles, tout est préparé pour que nous soyons à l'aise.

  • The hosts were very courteous, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and in all, I had an awesome time. It can be hard to navigate a new city and find a nice place to stay, but Katy and Ashley really made this easy for me. I'd highly recommend their place for anyone wanting to visit Boston.
