A native Bostonian, I can fill you in on the city's history and what's happening now - or not - depending on what you need and want while you're here. Come visit!

Michelle met me at the nearest underground. She was very interesting on the way up to the room. The place itself was very clean and comfortable. Michelle also baked some things for breakfast which were excellent! It was a very pleasant stay and I would highly recommend this listing.
Michelle was a great and friendly host. The house is deep inside a residential community but Michelle will offer to walk you to and from the T station just to make sure you can navigate around easily. She is also a fantastic baker and makes an amazing coffee. Also the room was great. I've stayed in a lot of poorly insulated (sound and heat wise) places in Boston and this place was just right for a relaxed stay.
Michelle truly is an airbnb SUPERHOST! Her kindness, warmth and intelligent conversation are outstanding. She really knows urban Boston and her neighborhood in depth. We felt so lucky to taste her yummy baked goods and wonderful potluck contributions! Finally, the fleece bedlinens were SO comfy!
Thank you for a memorable stay.
Michelle was a fantastic host! She welcomed me at the nearest T station and walked me to her home as she was orienting me to the different neighborhoods near the HSPH (which I found very helpful). She also baked some delicious banana bread and blueberry muffins. Yummy! Thank you so much Michelle for being a wonderful host.
Michelle is a gracious hostess, very much concerned with the comfort of her guests. She has much information about the area and is happy to share. She will walk with you to the "T" or bus station to assure you won't get lost. She even picked me up from the airport when I left for a weekend trip. It is not unusual to find homemade muffins or granola bars on the kitchen table in the morning. If I return to Boston I will be checking to see if Michelle has openings!
I'm 90, and an "ancient athlete" who'd gone to Boston to compete in age-group track on March 15-16 in the USATF Masters' 2004 Indoor Championships. Michelle's facilities were just what was needed: privacy and quiet for day and night rest and recovery. Big Bonus: Michele knew far more about nutrition than I did. The meals were tailor made (Oooo, that lentil soup!). She took me to the track, pinned on my racing bib and cheered as I staggered by. This gracious hostess provides a true home away from home in clean and comfortable surroundings. They're two flights up, but we'd all benefit from more exertion (See my kids' picture ebook, "The Sandpiper's Game") , but be cautious because Boyle's Other Law says: "Exercise will keep you from becoming a well-rounded person."
Michelle provided for me an amazing host! The house is cozy, warm, what is important in Boston during the winter, and very spacious. She was very gentle to walk me almost at work the first morning after I arrived (7-10 min to T and 15-20 min to Longwood medical area).
Moreover, Michelle is a great cook! I will never forget her blueberry pie and healthy browns ( I'm sorry if I spell it not correctly). Thank you! I would recommend to stay at her place.
Ça me fait beaucoup de plaisir de rester chez Michelle car elle est quelqu'un de très gentille et disponible pour ses locataires. Je n'oublie jamais sa pâtisserie parfaite! Bravo, Michelle! Et je te remercie pour l'accueil et bien-être!
MIchelle is an excellent host!
This is my first time with Airbnb and I was very worry with all the potential scams over the internet. If you are looking for a safe place to stay in Boston I encourage you to book with Michelle. She will relieve all your fears with her honesty, and hospitality. The room is warm, beautiful, clean, and very well maintained. The house itself is more than enough space and everything from the kitchen, living room and bathroom is well-maintained. I highly recommend staying with Michelle.
Michelle was an amazing host! Super kind and gracious, she was always available if you needed anything and even made us baked goodies a few times. The room was great and quite spacious. I was very comfortable during my stay and felt right at home. And the bed is incredibly comfortable- it was hard getting out of it!! The house is beautiful although not in a close location to groceries or stores without a vehicle. Public transport is about 10-15 minutes away and an easy ride to downtown. Absolutely loved my time here and would definitely stay again!! Thank you so much!
I loved my room! It was everything that was written: cozy and very clean. Michelle was also a perfect host! She cared about everybody in the house and was always asking if everything was ok and if we needed something. I totally enjoy my stay! I have very good memories of my time there and I recommend Michelle's place for everybody :)
Michelle is such a sweet person. I would have liked to have her stay longer! Maybe next time! She is welcome anytime she wants to come to Saint John.
Michelle was an awesome guest. Full of energy and enthusiasm. She thoroughly immersed herself in exploring Philly and fell in love with the city I love. She was an excellent guest, thoughtful, clean and quiet. I look forward staying with her at here AirBnB in Boston.
Michelle has been a fantastic host during my stay in Boston. She is smart, insightful and has a vast knowledge of the city and the neighborhood. Always open for conversation but never pushy she went above and beyond what I expected my stay at her house would be. I know it is sometimes difficult to make a decision based on limited information but I promise you will not be disappointed by Michelle's warm, friendly and generous personality.
Located in the Fort Hill neighborhood, you are within walking distance of all the restaurants in the south end, the MFA, the Gardner Museum and off-the-beaten-path Jamaica Plain. Close to Dudley Station, you will have direct public transit access to Harvard Square, MIT, the airport, ICA, Downtown Crossing, Back Bay and Chinatown.
The house is very comfortable with tons of daylight, WI-FI internet, a nice living room and a great kitchen with a large fridge, gas stove and oven. Therefore if you are on a budget you don't have to spend all your money on restaurants and if you are lucky Michelle will share some of her wonderful cooking or baking with you.
