I'm a web developer living in Boston, MA. I love good eats, cool local joints, and playing squash.
Galen's Beacon Hill flat was fabulous. It was comfortable, immaculately clean and stylishly furnished. We loved the beautiful location on Beacon Hill, amid charming tree-lined streets and picturesque brick buildings. CVS and Whole Foods was across the street and a 10-15-minute walk brought you to the north end, Quincy Market, Boston Commons and other great locales. We enjoyed vegging out on his comfy sofas with his high-def TV and wifi after a long day sightseeing and college-touring. Although we weren't able to meet Galen, he was extremely prompt in his responses. He also allowed us to keep our (email hidden) for later pick up for an evening flight. We highly recommend him and his gorgeous place!
From start to finish, our stay at Galen's was exceptional. Galen is the ideal host, as he responds to inquiries quickly, and was very courteous and helpful both before and during our stay. His apartment was exactly as pictured, and was very clean, comfortable, and inviting. The Beacon Hill area is an ideal Boston location, close to Boston Common and many great shops and restaurants. We certainly enjoyed feeling more like a local while exploring his picturesque neighborhood. Galen went above and beyond to make sure our stay at his apartment was the perfect compliment to our time in Boston. Galen truly represents the perfect Airbnb host!
We had a wonderful time in Boston. The apartment was warm, welcoming, and comfortable. The location couldn't have been better; close to delicious restaurants & Boston common. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance and we felt like we were living as locations. A big thanks to Galen for his great instructions and taking care of us!
The experience was exactly as advertised and then some. Galen (email hidden), his apt. is very clean and very we'll appointed. We've been to Boston several times and can't recommend a better location. Beautiful, charming and very quiet.
I can't say enough about Galen. He met me at the apartment on my arrival to show me around and leave the key with me. The apartment itself was immaculately clean and had everything I needed for my stay. It's in a quiet neighbourhood close to Boston Common so I was able to walk everywhere. Whole Foods, CVS and Starbucks are all a 2 minute walk away.
I texted Galen a couple of times over the weekend with questions and he had a helpful response right away. He (email hidden). I highly recommend him and his apartment!
Clean and charming appartment. A very confortable place to stay in the quiet and beautiful Beacon Hill. Very good value for the price. The host is very nice as well :)
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My wife and I just got back from our trip to the east coast and one of the best parts of our vacation was staying at Galen's place in Boston's south end. The apartment is extremely clean and modern and had everything we needed for our stay (including some seasonal beers Galen told us to help ourselves to, which was awesome). There are a plethora of restaurants to chose from right down the street and downtown is not that far of a walk either. We never met Galen but knew he was just a phone call away if we needed anything during our stay. I'd definitely recommend Galen and his wonderful place for anyone looking for a clean and convenient place in Boston!
We had a great stay. The apartment is in a great location including an easy walk to Newbury St. All communication was great and very prompt. We were met at the apartment and shown around - everything was excellent.
What a lovely apartment in a great part of the city! The apartment was really clean and had plenty of room for us to chill out in and really make the most of our stay in Boston. It is so well located that you really can walk to all parts of the city.
Galen was so helpful and friendly and gave us great confidence with making the booking. We will definitely be recommending Galen and his apartment to anyone wishing to go to Boston- and would stay there again in an instant if we are lucky enough to return.
Thanks for making everything so easy and being very patient with all of our questions!

Galen was a model guest. He was very proactive in communication and left our home spotless! Great guest and I'd have him back any time.
Galen was the perfect guest, with excellent communication before as well as after their stay. They were extremely respectful and left the apartment spotlessly clean. I'd definitely recommend Galen and would be happy to welcome him back anytime! Thanks Galen :)
Galen was a fantastic guest. He was very easy to coordinate with and he left the place spotless. Spotless! I would definitely rent to him again.
Galen and his girlfriend were great guests, very mindful of the apartment and its cleanliness. They also had the nicest detail of leaving some flowers with a thank you note!!!
Galen is very outgoing, friendly, kind, and a great friend of mine. He has an awesome apartment with an excellent location in Beacon Hill-- close to the T, Boston Common, and many great shops and restaurants. It's well furnished, clean, and comfortable. You're guaranteed to have a great stay-- it's the perfect home away from home!
I've known Galen for four years now, and he's been a good friend of my friends for even longer. He's a great guy, very trustworthy and reliable. If you're (email hidden) or he's staying at yours, I know it'll all run smoothly.
Galen is a super friendly, outgoing and intelligent guy who would be a great guest to any Airbnb host considering him. As someone who has hosted 25+ guests, I can say that the guests who are interested in meeting and interacting with their hosts (and the Airbnb Community) are the best and make the community what it is—Galen is one of those people.
