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.

  • 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.

  • This was a perfect place to stay for a busy weekend in Boston. It was clean and cozy with all of the necessities. Katy and Ashley are very friendly and accommodating. Location makes for easy travel via the green line. Thanks for the great stay!

  • Such a great stay, but too short, as I must say.
    I'd rather stay a bit longer, and overall with hosts like Katy and Ashley, who are very responsive, and so very helpful . The house was great, I felt at once welcome, the room spaceful and comfortable, very considerate, providing with everything one needs.
    Location is wonderful, public transport great. Overall I enjoyed it a lot.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed with Katy and Ashley while checking out law schools in Boston. We arrived late Friday night and the two of them were waiting for us with a parking spot which was awesome. They were extremely accommodating and had everything from a mini-fridge to a space heater for us to use. They generally let us be but were totally there if we had any questions. My girlfriend and I were comfortable and would recommend anyone stay there.

  • Would recommend! Katy and Ashley were great hosts and their cats were adorable.. Everything was as the description says: the station is 5-7 min walk away (very convenient) and some of the tourist attractions, such as Harvard, is located at a totally walkable distance. Plus, the neighborhood has a cool, quite atmosphere -- I went to one of the bars Katy and Ashley recommended and the place was great. Very much satisfied. I wish I could have stayed longer.

  • Katy and Ashley are the most friendly hosts I have met yet. They are very responsive from inquiry all the way to moving in. I booked the room for my parents, who do speak English. They did not feel any awkwardness at all. The room was very spacious. To me, the stay was comparable to a 4 star hotel. Their house is very close to the subway station. Katy and Ashley's is definitely worth a night or two.

  • I was looking for a place to stay close to Fenway where I was participating in an event that weekend. This was a great spot! The room is clean & bright, exactly as pictured. I lived in Boston previously for many years but there were some great guides in the room for any tourists as well as a mini fridge & coffee machine which was a nice touch. The only issue was parking but that was to be expected in Boston. Once I found a spot, we left the car parked for the weekend & used the T which was very close by. I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • Very clean and nice house, non-intrusive and very friendly. Very accommodating hosts. Very safe neighborhood in a good location (T station just a few mins away, easy to get a cab). Parking was close by and free (over the weekend).
