Outside of work I like walking dog, working out and drawing. Have hosted guests from all over the world since 2003. I look forward to meeting many more.

I stayed with Robert for 1 month upon moving to Boston from Colombia and his home was a home away from home to me. He made me feel welcome and was very helpful in explaining the neighborhood. He also offers kind and interesting conversation. Two friends came for one week and stayed in the studio, and they also felt welcome and had a lovely stay. Robert also helped me move out to an apartment in downtown Boston.
The description of the house is very accurate, this is a beautiful, comfortable and clean house. The room is lovely and has a beautiful view, specially at dawn in winter (which is 7 am!).
The neighborhood is worth getting to know it, as you probably would not go if staying in downtown. It has a variety of restaurants and coffee places worth exploring and the lake is beautiful. If the weather allows it, running around the lake is delightful.
I stayed with Robert for 12 weeks during my internship. The house was always very clean. Robert was very hospitable, showing me the neighborhood and giving me advice about Boston. Highly reccomended for serious students or tourists.
My wife and me stayed at Robert's for a week, having a really good thanks to all the attentions of our host. At our arrival it was raining and he came and pick us up at the T train station! It was fun having a chat or two using words in Italian, Portuguese, French and English all mixed up. Rocco, the dog, is a peaceful, good boy. We had a bathroom all for ourselves and sharing the kitchen with Robert was never a problem.
We were the problem, as a matter of fact, always cooking full meals! For all the rest we cannot but confirm what the other guests have written in their reports.
All in all an accommodation to be recommended to anyone.
We had a lovely time at Robert's place in Jamaica Plain. The room and bathroom were immaculately clean, the rest of the house was nicely furnished and comfortable, and the pleasant backyard was a charming, quiet plus where I spent some downtime reading and relaxing. The neighborhood is great with a bunch of restaurant choices. I remember that years ago it was considered edgy but those days are gone, as far as I could see. The T station (subway) is literally 5 minutes away and is the best way to get around in my opinion. We got everywhere from Harvard to the Museum of Fine Arts to Dorchester with some easy transferring. I would recommend without reservation. Also, Rocco is a really sweet dog.
Excellent hospitality by Robert. He is very easy going and friendly person. Neighbourhood is quiet and green. Main street with shops and restaurants is walking distance away. Also subway very close and convenient to Downtown Boston.
My daughter and I stayed with Robert for three days, and had a perfect time! The house is so nicely decorated, and the bed was extremely comfortable! Robert was very friendly, interested and helpful. I will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the Boston area!
Robert was a fabulous host - kind, nice and always helpful!
The appartment is beautiful, big and very clean. The room and the private bathrom are also very spacious. My friend and me stayed there for two weeks together in one room and each of us had enough space.
The neighbourhood is very good - quiet and safe. The subway is only a short walk away. Also Center Street, where you can find many little shops, cafes and restaurant, is only a couple of minutes walk.
I would totally recommend Robert`s house and I would definetly stay there again. Nothing to complain about!
First of all, I should explain that my experience was not literally my experience; I live in Boston myself but did the booking for my parents that don't speak any English. Robert's place looks great, it's a beautiful house, really clean, greatly decorated, perfect environment for people wanting comfort and cleanness in a relaxed environment. My parents really liked the room and Robert not only was understanding of their poor English skills, but embraced our brazilianism trying out his own Portuguese skills, he's a great guy! About the neighborhood, I live in Jamaica Plain myself and love it, it's got tons of cool places to eat, parks and ponds around and an awesome and relaxed environment with easy access to downtown Boston, perfect for students or turists that don't want to pay ridiculous amounts of money to stay downtown and stay in a place that, in my opinion, is more fun and less busy.
Robert é uma ótima pessoa, e para todos os brasileiros aí afora pensando em visitar Boston, ele tem uma conexão com o Brasil e se divertiu usando seus português. Recomendo!
Just returned from a weeks stay in Boston. Robert is a fantastic host, really lovely guy, very helpful and very kind. Rocco is such a sweet dog, an added bonus to your stay. The house is amazing, lovely and clean and comfortable. The room is very comfortable and I had the best nights sleep in that bed the entire week. I stayed a particularly cold time of the year and the house was lovely and warm. The location is fantastic, a short walk from the T and lots of local coffee shops and restaurants. I would absolutely recommend staying with Robert and if ever i return to Boston i would definitely be booking to stay here again!
We couldn't find a better host for our trip to Boston. Robert and Rocco are so welcoming that it's hardly describable. You have to meet them! He gave us helpful tips for dining and sightseeing. His house is nice and neat. And I can only repeat: the bed is very comfy. Thanks again Robert!
