About this listing
This is a cozy yet spacious one bedroom unit with everything you need to make your stay a comfortable one!
Recently renovated, private one bedroom apartment which sits on the border of the great Boston neighborhoods of Roslindale and West Roxbury. Has everything you need to make your short or medium term stay comfortable, convenient, and affordable! Rents by the day, week, and month. Approximately 600 sqft of fully furnished top floor living space including a spacious bedroom, large living room, new bathroom, efficiency kitchen (no oven) and eating area. Private entrance. Access to shared back porch, grilling area and backyard. WiFi and internet cable included.
Note: This unit is 5-6 miles outside of downtown so please take location into consideration before you book. Please see note below regarding public transportation.
7 minute walk to the Needham Line commuter rail (note: does not run on Sundays) and a short bus ride to the Forest Hills T station (orange line). Takes about 15-20 minutes to get to the heart of Boston via train. 10-15 minutes by car depending on where you are going. Bus stop right outside the apartment.
Shops, market and restaurants all within a mile. Harvard Arboretum right up the road! Plenty of on-street parking which does not require a permit (only town in Boston where this is the case). 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 week and month long rates for people who are here for temporary work, school, or just visiting. Would love to have you!!
This rental can also be combined with Airbnb #849408 for larger groups.
There is a shared porch and patio available to all guests.
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-(website hidden). Cab/Uber rides from the city center approx $15-25.
Other Things to Note
Please note that this is a third floor apartment. There is an inclined driveway which you will need to walk to access the back door of the house. From there, you will walk up two flights of stairs.
NO SMOKING AND PETS ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY
1. Be respectful of the other tenants

3. If you use the grill, be sure to turn off the gas
4. Notify the owner of any discrepancies or things not functioning properly immediately
5. Please treat carpet stains promptly (or notify the owner)
6. Kindly turn off lights, air conditioners, and other electrical items when they aren't needed
It really a nice place to live in which is private,clean,quiet, large and comfortable. The landlord, Damon nearly prepared everything for me and I just feel like to live in a luxury hotel. Also Damon is very helpful and solved many problems for me. I strongly recommend this place and you will have a memorable experience.
Super appartement! Vraiment très propre. Nous n'avons manqué de rien et Damon nous avait donné plusieurs indications précieuses notamment sur le transport. Stationnement facile devant la demeure. Hôte très discret (nous ne l'avons même pas croisé)! Nous avons peu visité le quartier, mais nous y avons tout de même trouvé un pub sympa (le Porter cafe... mal bouffe assuré, mais ambiance, bières et service impeccable). le quartier était un peu loin du centre et le transport en commun critiquable, a tout de même répondu à nos besoins! En somme, nous recommandons cet appartement pour son confort, sa propreté, sa beauté, ses commodités et son prix abordable!
Damon's home was everything I needed. The apartment was extremely homely, accommodating, and warm. It was a perfect place to spend my week away from stress! The apartment is located pretty close to Boston center, about 20 minutes. Damon was quick to respond at such short notice and I cannot thank him enough for providing his home for me as I needed it! I would highly recommend his place to anyone coming to Boston and highly consider using him again for the next time I am in town!
We felt welcome, he left chocolates for us, a nice little treat. The space was exactly as described, it was lovely and spacous. I was pleased to have access to the balcony, it was nice to start each day sitting outside with a cup of tea. We had a car which was a concern for us, but parking was as easy as he said. We were quite busy visiting family so did not have a chance to meet Damon, but he was quick to answer texts when we had questions and checked in to see if we needed anything. We would definately stay here again!
Excellent stay. My in-laws have often used AirBnB when coming to visit and they felt that Damon's place was one of the best that they have stayed in. Highly recommended.
Joli appartement, tranquille, propre, spacieux (le plafond est cependant parfois un peu bas dans les coins puisque le logement est situé sous le toit), astucieusement aménagé, comprenant toutes les commodités, de même que certains «luxes» (fauteuils inclinables, couette en duvet, plancher de bois franc, air climatisé, etc.). On voit que Damon n'a pas lésiné pour rendre ce logement agréable et confortable. Si l'emplacement n'est pas central, il est cependant facile d'accéder aux transports en commun. Le quartier est paisible, joli et on y trouve quelques restaurants dignes de mention et des épiceries bien garnies. Damon est un hôte sympathique et attentif, qui s'est empressé de répondre à notre demande dès que nous avons eu un problème (mineur, avec un disjoncteur). Nous vous recommandons chaudement ce logement!
Damon was a great host and the apartment really nice.
We felt really comfortable and enjoyed our stay.

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!
